Manchester Ship Canal

In 1887, construction began on the Manchester Ship Canal in north-west England, supervised by chief engineer and designer, Edward Leader Williams. The 40-mile waterway (60-km) was promoted by local manufacturer Daniel Adamson to establish Manchester as an inland port for ocean-going ships, to be less costly than transport via railway, and the port at Liverpool. Local businessmen met on 27 Jun 1882. Enabling legislation from Parliament was sought in Nov 1882, but strongly opposed by Liverpool and railway companies. An Act of Parliament was eventually passed on 6 Aug 1885, followed by two years raising £5 million for initial costs. The canal opened to traffic on 1 Jan 1894.«

Help from Grandma

Having been playing outside with his friends, a small boy came into the house and asked: “Grandma, what is it called when two people sleep in the same room and one is on top of the other?”
His grandma was surprised to hear such a forthright question from a six-year-old but decided to answer as honestly as she could. “Well,” she said hesitantly, “it’s called sexual intercourse.”
“Oh, okay,” said the boy and he ran outside to carry on playing with his friends.
A few minutes later, he came back in and said angrily: “Grandma, it isn’t called sexual intercourse. It’s called bunk beds. And Jimmy’s mom would like a word with you!”
