It's all part of the Ripper mystery!

Nah, that plaque is just full of nonsense top to bottom, really. And "hung"? Hmph!

Default G'day Helena

t was family tree research that bought me to casebook many years ago.

I have a number of convicts and at least one person hanged. He was a son of a nobleman and it is said he was hanged in sight of the lands that wouold have been his to remind him of what would have been his.

Ahhh that is the kind of thing we all hope to find! Well done! My lot were all simple peasants.

What a shame you don't live in London, Gareth, it would have been great to have you attend the meeting.

Sad to say, "hung" is now accepted as also being correct. Which in the US at least (I'm not so up on my British slang these days) leads to some confusion.

But it's totally hanged. I don't care what the dictionary people say. They lost my respect when they put "jiggy" in the dictionary, when the guy who popularized the word can't even define it.

Hi Errata.

Hey, you do know that you are quoted in my book, don't you?

I DO know.

And I have a birthday coming up soon, and the money I receive will go to buy your book.

If I don't lay down super strict book buying rules, I'd be living in a mobile library eating Ramen noodles.

Yes, Jon, indeed I can.

You can do no better than to read the book's webpage, and some of the 17 5-star readers' reviews.
