Part time work for anyone by Paul McCaw (Member 10190518) on 3-Aug-2006
What would 50-200 extra a week mean to you? Would it mean a great Christmas rather then an average one?
Would it mean being able to spend more time with your family instead of spending time with the boss??

MILLAR family in Portrush... by Salmonberry Sherry (Member 10158926) on 16-Jul-2005
I know this is a longshot, but does anyone know of the Millar family that used to live on Black rock Road in Portrush? I am an old friend of Neil Millar, and last heard from him years ago when he was traveling in Australia. He used to be a bike courier in Vancouver, Canada back in 1989 I think....

    First lived in a bungalow at beach level near the Black Rocks. It almost burnt down at Angus's 10th birthday party. The day was saved by a digger driver working on the dunes. Sadly he was killed soon afterwards when a sand bank engulfed his machine. Angus worked in Belfast in th... more >>

    a message for member 156732 (gill) i was at the home from 1965 to dec 1971 i used to go to carnalridge primary school and then onto the intermediate girls school, I left in dec 1971 at the time to go to england for 2weeks but ended up staying here. Miss Christie was the matron while I was there.

  • Re: children's home by gillian bather (Member 10155534) on 26-Sep-2005
    Thanks Kathleen. I am trying to help my husband piece together his past as there is a lot he cant remember.His sister Patricia was with him but was very younge, and a baby brother whos name he cant remember. Tha baby brother was adopted. Any memories you have would be very helpful

  • Re: children's home by Kathleen Arnold (Member 10150485) on 28-Feb-2006
    While at the children's home the matron was called Miss Christie, those of us that were of school age went to Carnalridge school, I then went on to the intermediate. We used to go to the beach a lot. If your husband was in the home at the same time as me maybe if you email me or have a picture I may remember him.Kthlarnl@aol.com
