Hello Tracy and welcome to the forum. When I joined I wouldn't have believed the amount of information available and the kindness and knowledge of members more than willing to help me. Since then I'm afraid I have to admit how much I have become addicted. Hope you enjoy! :)

A Boar as you probably now realize is a male pig

The Pig War was a confrontation in 1859 between the United States and the British over the boundary between the US and the British Empire......some might say a bit boring!

As a major collector of Boer War my den is full of period items......

Many Christmas's ago, "She Who Must Be Obeyed" had a brass plaque made for the door......
