Subject: BS: What are you up to this weekend?
From: Trevor
Date: 23 Nov 07 - 06:50 AM

Just wondered about the diverse ways 'catters were going to be spending the next couple of days.

I'm wassailing with a few people I've not sung with before at the Mediaeval Fair in Ludlow, UK, tomorrow, out for dinner with my sweetie and and friends tomorrow night, bit of a lie in on Sunday followed by more singing at the fair and home in time for Top Gear.

Sounds a bit boring when I read it back, but, hey, I don't care!

I'm having a 'drink like a pirate' day, whilst watching the three 'Pirates of the Caribbean' films, making cards for our choir to sell for charity and then on Sunday it's 'have a hangover like a pirate' day with any luck.

Where's the rum?

Out tonight for a curry with family.

Saturday usual horsie jobs and a gallop through the woods, weather permitting. Evening, music, TV depending whats on and a bottle of wine.

Sunday usual horsie jobs, mom over for lunch. She's 84 and off to Australia next Wednesday for a birthday party for one of her 'old' friends. I will be worried to death until she gets there, and then worried to death again until she gets back, but she loves travelling.

well, it started a few hours ago with a concert, then tomorrow afternoon the Nov/Christmas meeting of one of the organisations I belong to. Gotta get some food for the party, also a little pressie, and mustn't forget to take my library books back as I missed the Oct meeting.

Then in the evening (after voting sometime during the day!!) it's my folk club - we all have out fingers crossed the the Govt will change & the Prime Miniscule (aka Little Fascist Johnny) will lose his seat, as well as government.

Sunday afternoon a concert at JennyO's club, then a CD launch at a pub in the evening.

Apart from that, nuffin' much.

We're going to have a turkey dinner at SINSULL'S tomorrow night, ride out with the antique cars and then coffee with a good friend on Sunday.

A bit quieter this weekend than it has been for a while.

Yesterday, Thaursday and Thanksgiving, we spent the whole day with my son Michael. Several things we planned didn't work out but we had a good day together anyhow. On Sunday we are going back to the residential center he is in and move him to a Therapeutic Foster Home.....He's making progress.

Saturday we'll be with Connie and Wayne and I'm making Cioppino......I make GREAT Cioppino! We'll have an antipasto salad and garlic bread then sit around, BS, and digest.....Hey...we're a fun group(;<)).....but we do eat well!

Tristan is also out of school on Monday which is garbage pick-up and he'll be able to talk to the guys and he's having Mom make up a plate of tin of her homemade cookies to give them. He loves ALL trucks but the garbage truck is a BIG deal. One of the owner/drivers is an old student of mine who has done really well in the business and Ryan enjoys Tris. He's let him help sometimes which makes Tristan's day/week/etc. In all seriousness, down the road a bit that is a job Tris could do and would LOVE to do. Ryan might play a large part in that. He always said I was the best teacher he ever had so maybe we have an "in" ****Big Grin***.............

Kewl, Spaw, glad to hear about the progress for Michael AND Tris' joys.

We have a few errands to run, today. I hope the station will NOT call Rog in for anything, or even call him for trivial crap like they did four times yesterday! (I think they forget some people rarely have days off and should not be bothered unless the place is burning down!)

Later on, I am sure we'll watch a movie or something whilst eating leftovers.:-) Yesterday we had a blast watching the old Disney animal version of Robin Hood, with Roger Miller's great songs, with my brother and grandson. I love that movie!

Tomorrow, we will relax, maybe try getting the gutters cleaned or finish painting the shutters or just clean up after Tksgiving dinner. (I have a list and I am not afraid to wave it around.:-)

Sunday is Rog's day to do absolutely nothing, if that's what he wants. We'll both be on the internet; I will probably try to finish up some editing work that's way past due. I am sure there will naps taken at some point and maybe a short drive in the country.

Thanks for asking,

kat

Unfortunately the most important person will not be there on this occasion, but will be the next time! Yes I am now planning to do my pre level 4 in the New Year ;-))

The wife (Ferrara) & I do crafts, and the weekend after Thanksgiving is out biggest show of the year. We set up on Wed. and then have Friday, Saturday & Sunday to sit and collect the BUSHELS of money.....theoretically. One day done as I type, and not 'too' bad, though crowds are a bit light. (gas prices, mebbe)

   You'd never believe how tiring it is to sit or stand in one spot all day, trying to be cheerful and answer silly questions. "Do you make all those YOURSELF?" "Well, yes...if we didn't, they wouldn't allow us in here."

But it nice anyway, and some folks do, indeed, bring money.

SSsssssshhhhhhhhhhhhh... no-body move, I've dropped me brain.

We drank like pirates last night and today we're having hangovers like pirates.

I'm off for a quiet hour in the bath now, after an hours rehearsing of The Messiah that I'm performing in the week after next....

Hopefully I'll have garnered enough energy to make the Christmas pudding by then, it's Stir Up Sunday today!

For the non-church going or terminally confused, the Collect (prayer) for today, the Sunday next before Advent, according to the 1549 prayer book is "Stir up, we beseech thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people; that they, plenteously bringing forth the fruit of good works, may of thee be plenteously rewarded; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."

Better get those almonds blanching... after a nice long soak for me!

Ran a quiz last night as a fundraiser for a local village hall (Stanford in the Vale). Sadly only 7 teams, there are usually about 12. Still not a bad night & they raised a few bob, it all adds up!
Thomas is away dancing with the local morris for the day, Kate has taken Matthew to play football. So I am hanging out the washing, shopping for dinner, cooking it & then baby sitting while Kate goes to a quiz in the local pub. And you wonder why I wear dresses sometimes!

Skarpi, Scooby, and Jacqui get well! {{{{HUGS}}}}

I spoke too soon, earlier. On Friday, the station called. We had to drive up on to Mesa Point, which, once one leaves the highway, entails three hours of driving across an ancient lava field with nothing but rocks just as it would seem, even in the very primitive road. The contrasts of the dried grasses and shrubs along the way were beautiful, though, and I got some good pix, I think. So that took up most of the day.

Saturday we were doing pretty well, even got some housework and other stuff done. Had plans for our grandson to come over. Not so. The station called. We had to go up on Blackridge where the main transmitter is. More pix to come, though I missed the quails, they ran too fast, and the rabbits. I may have a good one of a deer. We went up at sunset and came down watching a yellow full moon hang out over the valley. We were at about 8,000 feet above sea level while the valley is about 4,500. Just beautiful. I got some interesting pix of the moon with streaking and multiple orbs as the shutter in my digital was really slow as it was getting dark.

Just as we were headed down the snaky road, the station called again. They were getting ready to put on the news and left things to the last minute. Something wasn't working right, so there we go, heading off to the station. We finally got home about 7p. Our grandson gave up on us.

We have plans for today but I am NOT speaking them until we are done...maybe they won't call today. Some four days off it's been for my Rog!:-)

The light was tricky last night so some of the pix didn't turn out very well. There are four that at least show a bit of the sunset and full moon both of which were spectacular, esp. given they were at the same time. CLICK HERE if you'd like to see the drive to and from "work" last night.

Now I think it's off to bed early for a change.

mixed bag of things done this weekend included: Shopping for shoes,
Major clean around (as I've not had time and I've got so much clutter) for 'drinks' before meal out with 10 friends, to celebrate our 10th year in business!
Photocopying, collating and 'comb binding' 100+ training books for next weeks work load,
including 3 hours to repair a broken tooth on comb binder! (on third rebuild attempt)
Returning friends car to their house, having driven them home after a fantastic chinese banquet at Mr Chu in Hull,
returning un bubbly bottle of 'bubbly' to Tesco for full refund, Lucky I'd bought two for Sat pm!
Making Sunday lunch
Collecting son from friends house,
Loads of laundry, 4 I think,
Missed opportunity to sing this afternoon, more comb binding and had to clean parts of the photocoopier as we'd got bad black lines instead of print!!! (Ugh)
Phone calls to twin sister about brother, then to brother,
Now, shell shocked and ready to switch off but not until Hubby calls to say he's safe in Northampton .... so in all it been a busy one.
. Grreat that I've now got all surfaces clean ready for those cards that will be arriving over the next month. Must get my card list out now and see if I can be ready in advance with at least one task ! One month and it'll be nearly over!
Just re read this, no wonder I'm tired. Think I'll have a rest day tomorrow. Hope you all had a great time!

Thanks, folks. It was a beautiful night. Today is almost over, so...here goes: quiet morning doing mostly nothing, except some laundry. Morgan came over at 11a. At noon we went over to our son's and his partner's house, with Morgan who loves playing with her five year old, Patrick. They are best buds. Our son made chicken kabobs on the grill, we had great food, a fun time visiting and playing. My only regret was I didn't take over the dulcimer and limberjacks. Need to do that next time. I love our son's partner. She is very easy to be with and just a doll. She's also got a great son.

Home by mid-afternoon after dropping the grandson off with his mom and "dad," then we both mostly slept the afternoon away. NO phone calls (knock on wood!) So it's been better, yes and thanks!

Thanks for all of these. Do you remember that book that came out in UK a few years ago - I think it was called 'A Day in the Life' - full of photos of how people spent just one day. I love to think of all of us going about our business, doing our stuff - like on a Sunday in summer when you see cars with bikes on the rack, fishing rods, surf boards, trailers with horses, caravans, just everybody being ordinary and extraordinary, doing ordinary and extraordinary things.

I sang at the mediaeval fair in Ludlow, Shropshire (trying to figure out a way of getting to show you some pix). Thw wassailing was done with such gusto that I now have no voice.

Thanks for letting me in to your weekends.

THIS weekend (1st Dec) members of my chorus are singing carols in House of Fraser, Oxford Street. We're moving around the floors and doing half hour sets, but it'll be live music in half hour sets and there may even be the odd folk carol snuck in!

It's VIP Day this Saturday (Very Important Pedestrian) so Oxford Street itself, along with Regent Street is vehicle free - that includes busses and taxis so there'll be lots going on.

On Sunday, I'll be making more cards to sell!

Behind the times, oh well. The weekend 23 -25 Nov, was of course Thanksgiving in the US, as I believe was noted--so for many it started Thursday. That day I went to my brother's place. After eating, I heard one of my nieces play the harp. Not a Celtic harp, nor a concert harp. Something between.

Then my brother played what I think he called a "xanphoon"--something like that. Cross between a clarinet and a saxophone. Sounds like it too. And very portable--he takes it on trips a lot. I bet it's a good conversation-starter. He played "Has Anybody Seen My Gal?", "Cheek to Cheek" and a few more. If I could play a reed instrument, I'd definitely be interested in this instrument.

Friday I sang 2 concerts of "Showboat" at the Kennedy Center, Marvin Hamlisch conducting. Not staged, just a concert version--some selections. Wonderful cast, picked by the conductor. In "Old Man River" we sang "Some of us work on the Mississippi." "Some of us"? Sounded weird. But that's what Marvin changed it to. Another "Showboat" concert Saturday night. Standing ovations all 3 times. The cast deserved them.

Sunday, Jan and I had a music party. Harp (David Scheim--so wonderfully versatile), also fiddle, viola, clarinet, guitar--but mostly singing. I love that sort of gathering--but missed you, Bill and Rita!

Schlepped 280 handmade Christmas cards across London to Waterloo, unstacked chairs, set out wine glasses, bottles, mince pies, plates and napkins, schlepped across the river to the City to sing at a wedding in the Wesleyan Chapel (it was beautiful, by the way, singing 'Silent Night' in German and making the bride's mother smile like a lighthouse), back to Waterloo to set up 280 handmade Christmas cards out on tables, sing in the chorus for Handel's 'Messiah', serve wine, mince pies and cards to the audience, go back and sing the second half of 'Messiah' - note to self: didn't realise the Hallelujah Chorus was the original Standing Chorus, must try it in the Middle Bar at Sidmouth and see what happens - clear up and schlepp back home with 260 handmade Christmas cards, 120 glasses, 2 cases of leftover wine and about 80 mince pies.

Sunday. Cleaned house, cooked lunch, helped child with homework, washed 120 glasses.

I've already been shopping today (Monday and it's not even 10.00am) and about to start on the rest of the cleaning... and writing out some of those 260 Christmas cards!

Next weekend is cancelled... unless someone else does the cooking.

A bit late now for Foot, but if it's Cambridge England (not Cambridge Mass) then there's a whole bunch of past threads with people looking for music in and around Cambridge...

Emma, you're lucky being able to just nip up and over Snake Pass! Kinder Scout is pretty much my spiritual home, second only to Rannoch Moor.

Sat was Xmas shopping (me and the rest of the world). Sun mostly involved converting a lot of flour into a lot of buns and loaves, and converting a lot of crumpled fabric into ironed shirts and pressed trewsies. Liz, I would have offered to do yours as well, but I had quite enough for one full afternoon's work!

Graham.

We went to a very soggy winter wonderland but had a nice time on Saturday. Sunday we went shopping...again, visited the sinlaws and sorted out the dining room for Saturday's party. Remaining decorations have been put up and I'm in the middle of making a holly wreath.

Two lovely weekends (and a midweek concert/meal) spent in the company of good friends with fine music and singing.

Oh dear time to get down to some serious Xmas shopping...

When the going gets tough the tough go shopping!

On Saturday night, 15 December, the locals at the Cratfield 'Poacher' pub, in Suffolk, will be driven screaming into the night by a group which is a spin-off, or perhaps a 'reeled away drunkenly', from the regular Thursday night sessions at the notorious 'Eel's Foot'. There will be country, blues, vulgarity, insults and a bit more vulgarity, all from a bunch of people old enough to know better. Usually going out under a different name each time to avoid writs, and paternity orders, they have been prodded by 'Mojo' magazine into adopting the name of the Trembling Wheelbarrows. A search for them on YouTube will serve to frighten off any remaining punters. Entrance is free, for reasons which will become obvious.

Those of you who have plugged in to the 'nightmare' thread will realise that the last couple of weekends have been pretty extraordinary here. Haven't had much sleep, but things are settling into something of a routine now. Next weekend is Rapsquillion's Christmas gig - a welcome distraction to concentrate on for a few days.

2 weekends gone by since my last posting (oh let's not talk about last postings - only sent my overseas cards today so no-one will get them before Christmas!)
Trad awards weekend in Fort William was fab, even if some thought that not all the right folk won! (Some very difficult choices in some categories, esp Composer of the the year: all 4 nominees excellent!)
Last weekend - Saturday rubbish, Sun night good with plenty of song and music.
Coming weekend: Carol concerts x 2, dinner cooked by my daughter, meet her in-laws, pub session with plenty of Bah humbug songs I hope!
I must write some more Christmas cards

Out Friday evening to see Coope, Boyes & Simpson on Corringham. Not sure what's happening for the rest of the weekend but I'm thinking of possibly heading down to Hertford and East London if the energy levels get better.

Jacqui - You'll be made most welcome in east London if you get here, bed can be made ready for you at short notice and we have gin! Micca is a bit busy this weekend and we're out and about Saturday, but you're welcome to come and relax with the cats. There's a Christmas fair in Hyde Park if you get down in time! You could help us with our decorations again on Sunday...

tonight I'll be making cards, Chrissy & general as I'll be giving cards as pressies with some chrissy cards. I might even finish off my kimono/housecoat, all it needs is handsewing. Or I just might read that murder that needs reading. Or maybe some other library books that are sitting around waiting to be read.

Saturday make cards, especially if I have read that murder, then at night we have the last Bush Dance for the year where I help set up & collect the money & do other stuff, but not dance (too many sore bits) & distribute a few cards I've made.

Sunday I dunno, there is nuffin' on my diary! Maybe I'll keep making cards if I get on a roll on Saturday, or work on some other crafty stuff. Or read library books.

Whatever, I'll listen to some of my new CDs.

Last night Jon and I sang in a memorial concert for our 2 friends [husband and wife] who have both died in the last year. Mike had been a player in many famous brass bands and the concert was organised by his last band for them.. I've never had a brass band backing before! Tonight we are carolling at Padstow - Where else?

Now it's another one. Yesterday (Saturday) I did some work, went to a MASSFILC meeting, and went to the Alley for beer & bears. Today I did some work, went to a chantey sing at MIT, and did Indian dinner with the participants. Expect to take a nap & do some more work tonight.

A lot of sweet people put up with me.
