  1. Hi Dan, I should post some of my Granddad’s favourite sayings as he reminds me very much of you in the way that you write. He comes from an area of England famed for making Pottery during and it has a very broad dialect and accent which is very endearing. He always makes me laugh when he tells me some of the stories of his youth.

    My very best wishes
