Hey Dave - if I ever feel the need for Child Ballads I will look you up - though as my own personal book of songs is now at about number 300 and I am trying to redo it with fewer in - it is getting heavy to carry around, I don't really need to add any more songs to my repertoire.

Except Clyde Water - I have to add that.

I think I need to get a new keyboard, or at least clean this one, it misses letters from time to time, or gets stuck on one. I can spell gargoyle - just never noticed I lost a couple of letters.

(turns keyboard over and shakes it so bits drop out.
That's better - just who has been eating crisps near this keyboard?)

I do find the modern attitude to shopping rather strange - it makes me feel old.

I definitely have old fashioned attitudes to getting into debt. There seems to be an attitude that treats and whims are legitimate reasons for spending money people don't have, and are never likely to be able to pay back.

I bought my old Framus Texan guitar for £25 way back in 1970 - I think it will see me out, and last year I bought a new capo. They seem to wear out after 35 years. Well, I had a bit of card to put under the strap for the last ten years, but the new one is adjustable.....
