Just a quick introduction and hello

Thought I'd join this site because there seemed to be some avid book lovers like me.

I'm from the Big Smoke (London of course) is anyone else?

I am currently reading Cassell's Chronology of World History, which is very absorbing.

Looking forward to joining in with some discussions. smile.gif

I have just purchased a bicycle!
I have recently moved to the City from a rural area and I am fed up with trying to get round London on smelly cramped buses.
But now I am trying to find some car-free routes, if anyone knows of any routes or sites that could help please let me know.
Thanks

Welcome!

Which part of London do you live in? There are certainly plenty of quiet cycling routes where I live – the London Borough of Redbridge. Some of them are a bit out of the way, but if (like me) you enjoy the relative peace and tranquillity, you wouldn’t mind that too much.

The East End, near Tower Hamlets. So unfortunately I'm right in the thick of it!

Hmm, I’ve been in Tower Hamlets several times (in the Mile End area) but I’m not very familiar with the place.

Is Redgridge far from Stamford Hill or Golders Green?
I know people from there. & Edgeware,Hackney.
London has such interesting boroughs. Each one, it's own little world!

I'm not new, I've been a member since a year ago when I was still playing Puzzle Pirates. I don't post much though, mostly I just read.

Bumping this. (I know it’s a sticky, but I just want it to be visible on the index page.)

Hi, Bernard. Welcome to the board smile.gif

I merged the thread you started in the General section into this one because this is where introductions should be. Yes.gif

He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan.

—II Kings 18:4

Nevertheless that brass snake was no item of pagan adoration: it was a wholly sacred object, made by Moses in the wilderness between Egypt and the Promised Land.

And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.

—Numbers 21:9

King Hezekiah of Judah destroyed it because his people had started worshipping it instead of using it as a cure for snakebites.

The mother of king Jehoiachin of Judah was named in honour of this sacred brass snake.

Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem three months. And his mother’s name was Nehushta, the daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem.

—II Kings 24:8

“Overlooked” carnivore is major discovery of 21st century

Scientists in the US have discovered a new animal living in the cloud forests of Colombia and Ecuador.

It has been named olinguito and is the first new species of carnivore to be identified in the Western hemisphere in 35 years.

It has taken more than a decade to identify the mammal, a discovery that scientists say is incredibly rare in the 21st century.
