I've heard that there is a firm in the dover area that catches illegal mexicans trying to get into the country disguised as asylum seekers. The thing is that they are reported to have a new scientific procedure called "The Loki Transmutation" that turns the mexicans into logs! So don't be surprised mr Ingham if your sausages taste of tortilla soaked in tequila!

That was Nigel. He emigrated to Eastern Europe and has disappeared without trace. He was a great laugh. He was always playing prctical jokes such as wearing a false beard, hiding DK's sauages, sleeping in the wrong field, burning loads of chickens, singing the welsh national anthem at midnight, drinking too much alcohol and pulling faces at folkmob people and other stuff like that. We missed him this year at the Edinbucket fringe events.

I'll certainly be at the Knockholt Autumn Leaves Mini-Festival (what a posh name now too). Sometime on the Friday afternoon I suspect, caravan in tow, but without my significant other half. Before any of you ask if I've had liposuction, I mean the lovely Jan who's dancing at the Maidstone beer festival that weekend, so I'll have to chat up the sheep before Ricard Bridge grabs the prettiest one!!
John Barden

p.s. Melodeon Boys' report is correct. I'm critical of Broadstairs Festival for I can't understand how they have all those musicians there all week with nowhere to go before the hours of 12:30 and after 14:30. Sidmouth sessions start at 09:00 and go on to 03:00 the next day every day - and don't tel me that it happens at the school as what do you do if you ain't got a season ticket. No decent bus service from the campsite to town either - Sidmouth run one every 15 minutes until 02:45 am every day. Need I say more

School at Broadstairs as flat as a pancake this year (last year too) and nothing in the Moor and Coast tent either.

Also, I felt very slighted in the sinaground in the Yacht Club this year when it seemed to me that a certain big name implied that I ought to have opened the door for him (when to do so would have meant reaching across him and effectively preventing his egress). I have had to leave Broadstairs early this year owing to excess work, but it seems to me even less folkie this year so far.

Yes John, a couple people have done the song Autumn Leaves at FolkMob recently including a superb duet with flute and alto sax by paul & Sara and a stunning acappela by Debbie 'n Pat's daughter Sarah. So the title stuck in my mind when I posted this the name thing is just something I've been making up make up for each knockholt and they're usually song titles:
Midsummer Madness (Not Yet Written)
Autumn Almanac (Kinks)
Here Comes Summer (Undertones)
Autumn Leaves (Nat King Cole)

Looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend with like minded Caters - August has been great, but HECTIC - I need mellow, and Knockholt fits the bill perfectly.

What a splendid chill-out weekend. Field, Fire, Friends, Frigid water, Fart-huts, and of course the Fabric retreat in case of rain which happily stayed away.

But the Farmer had apparently read this thread and locked his girls up three fields away, so no sheep!

No Fights (although we did hear a bit of nagging going on)

Fantastic camp-fire cuisine by Pete

Some great music round the fire, some roaring harmony moments (or was that the beer talking?), a HUGE amount of alcohol consumed by many.

My sleep habits are not good (and stress doesn't help) and I got the best night's sleep I've had for over a year.

Just a great unwinder...

Thanks to every one for making my fortieth birthday one to remember. I especially enjoyed the balloon and the cake. And the comments in the card were great. Note the user name Sue!! For those of you who left before 3.00pm we had the release the balloon into the wild because it just wouldn't fit in my car!!! However, Isabella performed the ceremony with great style and it went off into the wild blue yonder with a little note attached. Thanks to everyone for making my friend Maria welcome - she absolutely loved the weekend and will definitely be back next year. Thanks to Pete the Hat for the tent, she is extremely grateful.

Hope to see some of you in October half term when I hope to get up for the Wednesday session.

p.s. For KAMPERVAN - Keep your eyes out on the FOLKMOB site and also here for the next one. It'll be something to do with Knockholt, and I suspect it will be sometime in mid-June 2008. It's really not to be missed.

What a wonderful five days. I didn't s***t myself. But whilst sat, heard strange rumblings from nearby. This was from the other loo being moved. Surely they wouldn't.. would they?... I had arisen when they tried to launch me into space. A song was written and duly performed on Saturday. The highlight for me is the sight and sound of Richard Bridge dancing around the fire singing along to Four-by-four! Yes- you did.... what fun!!! Roll on next summer!!!!

As promised:-

Ingredients
1 medium onion
2 fresh birdeye chillies (or ordinary chillies if birdeye aren't available)
6 cloves of garlic
2 tins chopped tomatoes
1 sweet pepper (any colour)
Dried Tarragon
Dried mixed herbs
Tomato puree
Garlic puree
Dark Soy Sauce (instead of salt)
Sugar
Olive oil

Method

Finely chop the Sweet pepper, onion, chillies and garlic. If you have a food processor then put these in with about half a tin of the chopped tomatoes and blend for about 15 seconds. Then add a desert spoon of dried tarragon, and a teaspoon of mixed herbs. Add the rest of the first tin of tomatoes and blend for another 15 seconds. Place in a microwave safe bowl and zap for 10 minutes.
Take out of microwave and add 2 x 6 inch worms of tomato puree and the same of garlic puree. Add a teaspoon of Dark Soy Sauce, a teaspoon of sugar and a desert spoon of Olive Oil and finally the other tin of chopped tomatoes (you can of course use ordinary tinned tomatoes and chop them yourself).
Zap for another 10minutes in the microwave and allow to rest for about 5 minutes. Taste – and add whatever you need from the above ingredients if needed – and finally enjoy. The resulting 'Arrabiatta' should suffice for 4 servings if you add cooked bacon, mushrooms or whatever takes your fancy.

The pasta I'll leave up to you

What a fantastic Knockholt and to see the field so full on the Sunday at 1300 hrs was for me unheard off? usually people are gone by the time I emerge from me tent on the Sunday.I have given my tent away because it was to small to comfortably accomodate both me and my liver.Take care of it Maria you wont believe the places that tents been. I shall invest in a much bigger tent for June 2008.thanks to everyone singers musicians cooks who made for me this the best Knockholt so far? Thanks Mick and sue if it was not for you?

The Saturday drink at the Tally Ho will remain firmly in my memory so many people came down.

You should have heard that leopard hiss when me and Pat disturbed her having a piss.
