Tom Gold replied to True's discussion Just a little blog, but it's all mine in the group Writers
"True, Good post. I have a blog myself which I use to post photos and tips on outdoor stuff. I'm no expert here but perhaps, like you, I enjoy owning and using a little piece of the internet. For me its also a platform for promoting the book…"

Tom Gold replied to Harry Edwards's discussion Where have the action heroes gone?
"Jethro, Perhaps its down to a lack of action actors. Remember Charlton Heston? That guy looked as if he really could throw a spear, ride a horse, fire a gun, so did guys like Burt Lancaster and Steve McQueen.  "

Tom Gold replied to A L Stein's discussion Modern lack of civility and manners?
"Stein, Here's one more for your list: People who take their dogs out for a cr*p (rather than taking them out for a walk) and then fail to clean up after them. Take a plastic bag, scoop it up and put in the bin first chance you get. Simple.…"

Tom Gold replied to W. Carrington III's discussion Work Watches
"The Seiko is smart looker, bit military perhaps but definately an outdoor chap's kind of watch. Tough, but not too clunky. Here's one which meets none of the requirements posted by W. Carrington…"

Tom Gold replied to Jason Roller's discussion Writing Advise
"Jason, Recently came up against this one myself. Some writers talk about the need to exercise their 'writing muscle' and I've  found this a useful way to look at it. Just like going to the gym, there will be days when you…"

My Great Grandfather and the last cavalry charge

Hanging in the hall of my parents home is an old sepia photograph of my Great grandfather, Guy Gold, and his family. He is smiling proudly across at his youngest son Alistair and it’s an image that fits entirely with my dad’s recollection of a kindly, gentle old fellow who always had plenty of time for children. Recently, when my brother took it out of its frame to scan it he found that written on the back was: Shalford 18 June 1917. Guy Gold’s 40th birthday when home wounded at Battle of…See More

Tom Gold replied to Cameron G.'s discussion Bought a lot, designing a house. Suggestions?

Tom Gold replied to Eric Robinson's discussion Manly outdoor skills
"My five year old can nail it every time which seems a tad unfair. However, when I  explained that we didnt have computers at all when I was a kid he just looked at me as if I was describing life in the stone age. I am left with no choice…"

Wild Man replied to Specs's discussion Real Men.
"This is funny bro- so many rules. You also give only two options: take it or leave it. Life is all about options and individuality. I'm wondering why the need to post your masculine criteria on here and how many of these do you live daily. Just…"
