GUEST,brian Whittlesea Strawbear (UK) Festival (52* d) RE: Whittlesea Strawbear (UK) Festival 17 Jan 09

Forget the Pseudonym I've come out of the wardrobe. Thank you to you all for making Straw Bear 2009 the best yet, but it was bloody cold. Mind you, we take the Bear to Bad Canstatt (Stuttgart) on Thursday for their European Mask Festival. Look us up on I recon it will be colder out there than in Whittlesey this year. Whittlesey (the contemporary spelling), means island ( all the eys and eas were islands in the fens) belonging to Mr Whittle. It was, before it was drained, next to the largest lake in southern England ( called Whittlesea Mere) and had access to the sea, some 70 miles away. The nobs could, with a little local help, sail from London to Peterborough. We use both names just to continue the confusion and fuel the debate. Thanks again and gan canny.Ps I don't think I got the blue clickey right.
