Scone Or Scon?

Tea anyone?
Devon Scone 2015-06-26 10.24.33
Don’t mind if I do

IT is quintessentially English – and yet the scone is something the country as a whole simply can’t agree about.

So, is it Scone (sc-own) for you, or Scon? I know that it’s always been a Scone for me and my family.

Living in Devon, as I do, it’s always clotted cream on first, followed by a huge dollop of strawberry jam. And that is how it is. Unless, of course, you live or come from Cornwall. Then, it’s jam on first, followed by cream.

Is it that important?

Yes!

It’s not just the argument about whether to spread the cream or jam first. Now, there’s an even more contentious question – how to pronounce the word scone.

If one isn’t from a posh background, it seems to be scone (sc-own)! If one is posh, it’s definitely scon; as in gone! Where a person is from, or their social standing, also determines how we pronounce our English scone. So, which is it for you?

Only A Whisper Away

Brixham

Prayers go out to the families of the two lads lost on scalloping fishing vessel Joanna C and their Skipper who survived and will be forever traumatised by this accident that happened in the darkest ocean.

Sharing a Poem I wrote a few years ago when I lost my dad to Prostate Cancer. I hope it offers some comfort to those left behind, as it did for me.

Only a Whisper away

Don’t cry for me,

For I’m not gone.

I’m only a whisper away.

~~~

Call my name,

I promise I’ll hear.

I’m only a whisper away.

~~~

Think of me in your dreams,

And I’ll meet you there.

I’m only a whisper away.

~~~

I’m the breeze in your hair,

I’m the wind that kisses your cheek.

I’m raindrops that fall,

I’m with you everywhere.

~~~

So…don’t be sad,

Just call my name.

For I’m not gone,

I’m only a whisper away.

Brixham Bay

Rest in Peace Lads

Ripples In The Sand (Capt.Jesamiah Acorne & His Ship Book 4)

Helen’s most recently published novel (June 2020) I’m a massive fan of Helen’s writing, and Ripples In The Sand did not disappoint. I thoroughly recommend it.

Ripples In The Sand

…1719 – Approaching England’s North Devon Coast Captain Jesamiah Acorne is worried. A Royal Navy frigate is trailing in his wake ad Sea Witch has a cache of contraband aboard. His instinct is to hoist sail and flee, but he cannot attract attention for his wife, Tiola, is ill and getting worse. She says the sea is affecting her, but Jesamiah has never seen seasickness like this before – is it something else? Something to do with her being a white witch?

Great storytelling. Grab a copy here HelenHollick

News:

Helen has taken the next steps to D.I.Y publishing her Novella “A Mirror Mystery’. I for one can’t wait to read it.

Helen is on most multi media sites.

Brixham residents came up with a great idea: How to raise funds for Shoalstone Seawater Pool.

Here’s what happened next:

Scarecrows started appearing in gardens. Thirty in total (more to be added here later so do drop back and have a look) I spotted several on my dog walk. Including Ironman atop Brixham Theatre! All brilliant. Everyone a Winner.

Anyone wishing to make a donation to help save Brixham’s Seawater Pool (there is a Donate link on their website) or to simply learn more about its history, please click the link: www.shoalstonepool.com
