I live in Nanaimo B.C. Canada. I think we are second cousins? My grandmother was Dorothy Turner from Wormleighton Warwickshire.
Her only Sibling was Maurice Turner, who immigrated to New Zealand after WW1. One of my hobbies is genealogy. I have a fair amount of information on our shared Turner history. Please contact me via email, if you are interested in sharing information on the New Zealand Turners. If I am not correct, and we are not related, let me know as well.
I am Trisha’s husband and you have the right Turners as Maurice was her grandfather. I have passed on your inquiry to Trisha’s mum Melda who was married to Maurice, Maurice seniors son.
I did reply to your email earlier via my phone but it may not have got through.
It’s hard to write a comment when you can’t see the text in the submission box General!! This in mind please forgive my spelling mistakes & typos!
Looks ace and can’t wait to sample some of those Italian espressos and wine and beer and grappa and whatever else they drink, will be a serious paaarrttyyy! mi
Sure will be Lieutenant! Yeah the submission box is an issue I have just found and have been working on it; have no idea why it has happened.
Still, it won’t stop the celebrations!!
Yeah, can’t wait.Starting our research
Yes the research is on – Italy then Croatia; reverse that or….
Just looking forward to us all being there!!
Nice one !!! Pics are great 🙂
I am a quieter achiever Adam, no accolades needed here !
Nice work Marscha & Farscha – I see Rennae’s name comes before yours in the sign-off Dingballs! haha 🙂
That’s no way to treat our Staff Sergeant during the Festive Season Lieutenant!!
Another goal for Team Head!!
“A year ago today”
Well done Ruvvie
Sure was darling! What a great time we had. Thank yo so much!!
I just looked through your Muddrush gallery. I know that by the name a “Tough Mudder”. I’ve always wished I had known about those when I was younger! What fun! I wasn’t able to view the gallery as a slideshow. It kept spinning “as in trying to process it to ready for viewing”. Since it was a small gallery I don’t know if it was because they seem to be large images or not. I have the Mantra theme also. I’m sure you know this. I love this theme and have actually donated to Cryout Creations and do benefit from 24/7 support. But, I would have donated anyway, as I am not a techie and this theme is wonderful, especially for someone who loves to display galleries. I do hope to get some galleries back up soon. Thank you for the help. I’ll be back some more, you have delightful photographs to look at.
Thanks Stephanie. The issue with the constant slideshow loading was because I was trying the Justified Image Grid plugin and while it worked okay, it has so many options that I decided to create a test install of my website on localhost to really test the plugin. I have now deactivated it on my web site so all should be good.
By the way there is a Tough Mudder event as well as the Western Muddrush only it is a lot longer and harder.
Glad you liked the photos.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a helpful comment. For over a year, no one has. They just take images! 🙂 Anyway, I left a reply, but basically I took all of my galleries down I was so frustrated. Not that my photography was wonderful, I’m just a beginner actually. Yours, by the way, is stunning!
But, by the 100th time someone has swiped your dog’s picture or in my case, all of the food photography I was taking, trying to ‘make a go’ of that, it was ‘trying’ at best. I never really could see a code in your post that I understood but I did find this page and thought you might find it interesting, esp. in terms of their discussion on the subject and other options they provide, as well. I’ll have to come back and visit your families’ site when I have more time to take in all of the beautiful photographs I’m just getting a glimpse of now.
Here is the link: (it really is amp, not and)
I didn’t think the code went through, I’ve had problems in the past including code in comments. Anyway here it is again:
Stop right click activity on photos.
Use the following as I did, if your header.php doesn’t have a
Try it out and hopefully you can get your galleries back up and safe!
Noice! Can’t wait! Will be some serious celebrating to do!!!
Glad you like it, tho at this stage it’s not guaranteed!! Yes, there will be some serious celebrating.

You also neglected to include the km’s you covered in your relay to life event mother dearest – for those reading this I’m proud that Mum covered 134 laps equating to a whopping 55 kms!!! That’s a massive effort when fit let alone with a strained hamstring! Well done Mama!! 🙂
Well said !
