More of Leire.

Here are a few more snapshots of my village.

We have lived here for 35 years and are just about locals now!

This is our house.

Leire looks very nice - is this where the Merrie Monk pub is?

john.g. said...

No, Dumdad, the Merrie Monk is a mile away. I don't like the pubs in Leire anymore.

Mr Farty said...

How do you cope with all that heavy traffic?

john.g. said...

Mr. Farty, further up the road it's like a chicane, with all the parked cars!

Whaddaya mean? You "don't like my blogpage"?

Nice photos. Are these similar to the ones that Di "posted" today?

Now explain THAT to your readers; if you dare!

NB. Let me know which hospital you wake up in when she reads about her latest adventure.

Your house looks lovely--all those windows...

Random side note: I see that Keith has used the abbreviation NB in his comment, and I've seen it several times in other Brit comments. Could you tell me what it stands for?

PI said...

I wondered if your pub was in the village but I see it isn't.
I've always translated NB as 'note well' but I can't think of the actual words. Ah MTL has told me - nota bene.

NB: means "Note Below". It is usually used as an afterthought, rather like PS (Post Script)

What a lovely place to live and well done your dad for the photos.

What's all this about photos with Di? Like your village. Looks lovely.

Debi....NB stands for Nota bene.

According to Wikepaedia it is: a Latin phrase meaning "Note Well," coming from notāre—to note.[1] It is in the singular imperative mood, instructing one individual to note well the matter at hand. (The pluralis form is notate bene.)

In present day English, it is used to draw the attention of the reader to a certain (side) aspect or detail of the subject on hand, translating it as "pay attention" or "take notice". It is often written in the abbreviated form: N.B.

Us Brits do tend to use "NB" to point things out.

We like to think we are clever, so Latin stuff suits well...

Some more beautiful photos, your house looks like it's in a very secluded area. I see the lane is popular for dog walking!

Thanks Sally, et al... (see what I did there?) I've learned something new, and that's usually a good thing...

Great photos - it's always good to see where fellow bloggers/plurkers are from.

More lovely pictures of your home and your dear town....! Whenever I see pictures of the places bloggers live it feels so nice to have a reference and also, it is like a wonderful little special trip for me as I sit here so very many miles away....!

There is nothing in the world to match an English village. It's so green!

Guyana-Gyal said...

We got NB from the Brits, and graceful, colonial-style architecture, but we sure didn't keep 'lovely and clean.'

What a beautiful place you live in, john g.

Ah, this shows the perfect stereotypical English village. Lovely. Truly lovely. I spent some time in the UK on several occassions, in several different places, and there was nothing more enjoyable than to wander around a quaint little village, stopping to enjoy a pint and some grub in a local pub.

I love the entrance to your house!
