Well, I'm about to provide a bit more information, courtesy of Wikipaedia, lol! Well, whaddya think, I'm the Encyclopaedia Brittanica??? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Mary Poppins was written in 1934 by P L Travers, (1899 - 1996), an Australian woman who used initials to disguise a woman's name. (Women authors must have had it tough in those days - George Eliot (Mill on the Floss) was a woman too!)

When Mary Poppins was first published in 1934, it was P L Travers' first literary success. Five sequels followed, the last in 1988, as well as a collection of other novels, poetry collections and works of non-fiction.

P L Travers fell out with Disney films when they made Mary Poppins in 1964, because they softened the character of Mary Poppins too much for her liking, and she hated the animated cartoon scenes so much that she would never agree to let Disney make another Poppins film, and even had this written into her Will.

Howzat?? :D

Wow b that's brilliant, i can't wait to find those books.

I logged on this evening as I was hoping to pop into the Jack for a quick one but I couldn't seem to find it. Could someone give me directions so that I can join you next week? First round is on me :)

There is also the 'slow' Jack which is in the village green - the thread is called Wednesday Night in the Jack but we go there most nights!

The chatroom was started by Mr B as we were racking up so many pages in the slow Jack and it is much faster!! I hope you find both and join us for a drink!!
Love and Light

Hi MP
I'm the other Aug 7th baby! I'm so glad to meet you. I've read some of your other posts - can't quite keep up with it all since my time on the computer is limited. Your description of Scarborough is nice. I'm from the wilds of Pennsylvania - but my family (way back in the 17 and 1800's came from England and Wales) and I hope to visit myself one day. Maybe I'll see you sometime in the Jack.... haven't actually been there yet! Have a supercalifragilisticexpealidocious day! And best of luck job hunting.
.......for I love the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.......

Haha, we'll have to remember to meet up in the Jack for a birthday drink in august :)

I have been following American politics with interest for a while now. I wish you all the best with your new president. I can see that Americans are leading the west in their call for peace, I really hope that our governments carry out the wishes of the people. I think despite the wars going on we live in exciting times and I hope that with the decline of capitalism we begin to witness a real dawn of change.

Nice to meet you sister, chat soon x
