Another one of my nana's was never sleep in your bed with your feet pointing to the door
as that's the way they carry you out when you snuff it.
Knife on the floor means man at the door (meaning the polis) if you drop a knife on the floor stand on it first before you pick it up. rolleyes.gif

Down here if you drop a knife they say an argument is on the way. I suppose there would be if you dropped it on someone's foot laugh.gif

My mother would flush nail clippings away before burning them.
She kept a string of black "Rosary" beads which I found as a wee child and gave to her: they were not the blackcurrants that I first thought they were. Although she was a protestant she thought it would be heap bad medicine to throw them away.

Celt chic your nana was dead right about the elephants being nothing but bad luck in the house.
Ours had Dye O'Rea and we called the vet to find out what we could best give it.
"Bags o' room" was the reply.

Stick to Gerbils.
