  1. When we went to the Rope Museum last week [Don’t worry, 100s of photos on their way…] a rope-maker there made a disparaging remark about string; he actually used the phrase “the S-word”….?! Mind you he did have a mad staring eyes and a straggly beard.
    Left me wondering when string becomes rope…?
