    That's not true, because we recently had Harvey in the US, next one after Ophelia is Philippe. "The current naming scheme began with the 1979 season. It uses alternating women's and men's names, and also includes some Spanish and a few French names. Before then, only women's names were used." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tropical_cyclone_naming

    Hurricanes are named after females, as is Ophelia. However, it may be famous as the name of a a hurricane, but its more famous as Politician Ed Balls sister's name. He said she had a horrendous time at school with name Ophelia Balls.

    A guy I worked with on Wythenshawe hospital told me about his wife's experience with a ghost just after he got married. He said his wife's dad who had been dead for a number of years used to visit her on a regular basis, he said, we would be in bed, he would be reading the paper or a book and she would say, Ron, me dads here, and she would have a full blown conversation with him, he said this went on for a few years, and in all that time he said he never felt anything strange like a temperature change or eerie feelings. One night after a few years of the ghostly visits his wife said , Ron, me dads going now and he cant visit anymore, he said all of a sudden he heard this noise which sounded like a freight train going through the house followed by what he described has pressure which he could feel coming from one end of the house and passing through his body and exiting through the front of the house followed by a total silence, he said that was the only time he sensed anything, and after that the visits stopped.

    Does everyone know that another GRO PDF trial is underway? This one will last 3 months, same deal as before £6 a shot, Beware the ages of people at death though notoriously incorrect as those under 2 years are written as months in the year column so you think your ordering someone aged 20 and it turns out to be an infant of 20 months.

    I happened to be in Rainhill at the time and it has been caused by Ophelia only snag I didn't have my camera. The ex-hurricane brought with it Saharan dust and debris from wildfires in Portugal and Spain and the appearance of sunset at midday is caused by the particles scattering the light and giving the appearance of a red sun It's certainly spectacular at the moment, there has been times when sand has been braught over to the Uk from the Sahara the trails of warm air flow can be traced from Portugal and Spain on Sat 24 https://en.sat24.com/en/eu/?type=visual5HDComplete

    Thank you ever so much for helping me.Yes the Kerrigan children are matches.I am presuming then that Melia was more than likely her maiden name.My family do have connections with St Joseph's Sutton going back a long time.My own Mum was baptised there.I have never come across an Edward and Mary Kerrigan but more than likely there is a connection somewhere that i could persue.This information has helped so much.Thanks once again.

    Parr is mostly chilled out these days cus 70% of the population are pot heads,10% are piss heads ,10% are coke heads 5% are crack heads and the rest are normal. Just a rough estimate, it could be the reverse also. @Robbob Iv'e seen that car many times, in fact there are quite a number of classic cars knocking about, its nice to see some one has put in the effort to restore them. Some are proper yedturners.

    It's fifty years since we left St Helens and while I do go back from time to time, I rarely go beyond my sister's house in Laffak or the Saints ground. What staggers me about the photos that Robbob posts from time to time of various parts of Parr, is how clean, green and fresh it all looks. My indelible memory of Parr from the 1950s is of polluting old glassware factories, grim smoke blackened terraced houses, Kimmik-heaps, colliery waste and flashes and old clay-pits {molly-pits anyone?)
