LMAO. And here was me resisting the footloose celt jokes.

I was behind a guy in Nettos this morning, he had two bags of peat compost and a tray of hybrid African violets - all on offer - I squeezed his bags to check it was peat and remembered the peatcutters. There is peat still cut in North Cumbria, near Brampton, and I know the other side of that seam. All I've found in it is bog oak - plenty of it, mind - in a seam. All the bits have the marks of stone axes - I'd love for someone to dendrochronologise it. VEBA, probably. One foot in the grave?

I make charms and jewellery out of bog oak and jet, it's very easy to carve. Prefer the jet though. I quite like to copy the little jet bears found in bronze age graves, or the bead necklaces. That primitive art fascinates me.

It's a curious one. Do you know of any traditons of a footprint on stone where, if you were to look at it, it would seem to be just a natural scoop or depression?

I saw one on the TMA site looking at wells near me. Druids Well in Fife looks like a natural depression, I think.
