My name is June and I am a plump, old, grey
wrinkly living in the south of England.
I decided to create Hints and
Things in 2000 to provide
some of the information that used to be passed down from generation to
Hints and tips on a variety of subjects;
explanations of basic cooking, knitting, sewing, DIY, motoring and
gardening terms; advice on cutting costs etc. In fact the things you
might ask your Mum, Dad, Gran or Granddad.
Add to this games, brain teasers, fictitious
collective nouns (as well as authenticated ones), mathematical shortcuts,
wordplay and, hopefully, it is a site that is not only useful and
informative but also enjoyable.
