If you see a small place or a thing mentioned by someone else [in any other thread] that you have been to or are familiar with you can tell it all here. This does not include big things or else we will get, 'Oh! Have you been to Scotland as well?' or 'I once had a Big Mac.' - unless it was in Timbuctoo.

I am drawn to this idea by Paolo saying he grew up in Essendon and I have Essendon in the back of my jumbled mind. My dad used to be a coal merchant in Stevenage and also sold logs. This meant he bought wood to cut up and as a boy I spent time in Essendon helping to clear tress - cutting, loading the lorry, burning the twigs and small stuff and sitting in the sun eating sandwiches and watching inquisitive calves sniff at the ashes of the fire. At least, I think it was Essendon.

Sounds about right, it's in Hertfordshire and when I was a bit older I would go and hang out in Stevenage with a friend who lived there (and indeed still does). Small world!
