Dear Readers, Despite my many pleadings, R.A.Spratt continues to be involved in the hobby of bellringing (she can be a very willful author). As a result she has insisted on having bellringing information featured on her website. If you are not a bellringer, and I hope for your sake that you are not, then feel free to ignore this section. It will feature bellringing jargon, squiggly diagrams and the most confusing array of numbers you will ever see outside of a maths text book.
Yours Concernedly, Nanny Piggins.
Thomas Perrins was kind enough to compose this method and dedicate it to Nanny Piggins.

Some of Nanny Piggins' greatest words of wisdom are now available ready to wear.
This is Lindy Michaels from Bookstar (the Barnes and Noble store on Ventura Boulevard in LA).
She was made employee of the month after winning the in-house sales competition by selling 150 copies of “The Adventures of Nanny Piggins” in record time!
She has sold literally thousands of copies since Nanny Piggins was first released.
You’re a legend Lindy!
The most common question I get from adults is – so that Madeleine Albright quote is a joke, right?
Well it isn’t. And here’s proof - me holding my framed letter from Secretary Albright.
I have it hanging above my desk because sometimes I find it hard to believe too.
Thankyou Secretary Albright!
