looking up names trench

Sky scape

These are a few of the names, which according to a recent study, have gone out of use:
 Chips, Woodbead, Jardel, Hatman and Rummage. It occurs to me that working novelists or short story writers might find these useful if they are trying to avoid libel actions by unintentionally using the names of living people. It also strikes me  that Chips, Woodbead, Jardel, Hatman and Rummage would be a likely name for a firm of solicitors.

Digging a  trench for runner beans provides some useful exercise. You fill it with old rags, screwed up newspaper and other rubbish mixed with compost to retain moisture and draw down the roots to where nourishment lies as the beans become established.
