This blog is about sayings and idioms in the English language, particularly those in vogue in the second half of the twentieth century.

The next two archive posts continue the earlier themes of farming/countryside and money.  These days many farmers are diversifying to make ends meet.

Down on the farm (Part 2)

For what it’s worth…Money matters (part 6)

This blog ( 3 years old today) is reaching the end of its active life.  Posting monthly here now.

Please have a look at Sue’s Trifles and Sue’s words and pictures, where there are regular updates.



Sue’s considered trifles contains a collection of words, sayings and idioms.  No new material is being added.  Instead there are links to posts you may have missed.  The next two are about might (possibility, chance, power) and the first with a connection to the sea and sailing.


All at sea (Part 1)

There will soon be a complete set of archive link posts.  It would be futile to have links to those, due to the reluctance of most readers to clicking, so very little new material will appear here.  Please consider following Sue’s Trifles and/or Sue’s words and pictures.
