680 – CW Magazine and The Discovery Centre

I’m reading Country walking issue 434, July 2022, reading the article from page 48. A walker and a geologist are exploring a part of wales where the geologist works. It’s not the walking but the story that is told about the area, and then sidelines such as finding the most boring grid square in the country.

There are times, and it mostly seems to be when I am reading CW, that my brain screams out to me “For F’s sake, get out and do something”. But then sinks back into that lazy addled torpor, of “but what” and “can I be bothered?” It’s so disappointing sometimes. But then time moves on. How much do I regret? To be honest, I don’t think about it much.

I have been wanting to get in to the discovery centre for a while. I am trying out a setup that I have been very eager to try for quite a while now, that of the iPhone mount, Bluetooth keyboard and notes app on the iPhone.

The keyboard has a tendency to slip and slide around the desktop a bit. I am wondering if there is something that I can do to stop that. Perhaps some sticky tape or something on the bottom would do the trick, but that might not it be acceptable. I’ll have to think about that.

I have taken two books off the shelf. A history of the Dissenting Independent Congregational – The Bury road United Reform Church 1663 – 1986.

I am curious about two things; the URC itself – how and why did it come about, and what is the basis for its doctrine?

And why the rather nice looking church at the junction of Bury and Stokes Road ceased to be used as a church. Unfortunately the book finishes before that happened, so further research required. Plus, it is now 1640 almost, and the library will be shutting in about 20 minutes.

The second book is about Henry Cort. he was responsible for the development of the process of puddling iron, which gave a significant surge to the lead Britain had in the industrial revolution of the 19th century. But it appears that he was the victim of a major miscarriage of justice, dying broken hearted and bankrupt. A number of people have campaigned since WW2 to recognise Cort’s contribution to the country.

I am running out of time, and so further comment on this will have to wait for a bit.

So, I consider the conclusion of this first foray in to library research to be in most respects outstandingly successful. If only i had remembered my glasses and hadn’t had to go home to get them, I would have had more time.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
