It occurred to me that, in the light of the global popularity of Downton Abbey, a serialised account of the contemporary life of a member of the English Landed Gentry, Lord Ravado, Earl of Slough would go down well here on Persona Paper. Being an En

New Year Planning

I've been retired for a year but one of the areas of my life I've yet to sort out is the back garden. This picture is 10 years old and shows the garden when I had given it a major makeover. It no longer looks like this! The wooden log rol

Found you! All the best, Writers/Bubblews. Now following you, so it's essential you write interesting things :)

Ah, the "mysterious RikRavado", lol! I've met and followed your dear wife, so it's a pleasure to do the same with you.

Hi Rik, I think I connected with your wife first, nice to meet you as well!

Did you have the same name on Bubblews as your face looks familiar but I don't recognise the name. Anyway, you're from the UK which is good enough for me!

Many thanks for the heads up Kasman. I should have read the 'small print' re images.

RikRavado - just a quick heads up on something you may not be aware of. Persona Paper is quite strict on proper image accreditation. Your post on 'Ravado Towers' includes a Pixabay image but the accreditation isn't sufficient. You need to read the FAQs (button at top of every page) on image accreditation. Also, when you write a new article your will see (under the 'Choose File button) the words 'Image Credit' with a question mark next to them. Clicking on that question mark will give you examples of how and how not to credit images. I don't want to appear like a nosy know-it-all but not crediting images properly could result in you not being paid. Don't want that to happen to you!

Hi Kasman. Good to see a familiar face! Hopefully she will join soon but, like me, she is also keeping an eye on Bubblews (more curiosity than the hope of payment!)

Hello Rik - good to see you here. Is your other half coming too?
