When Cecil Sharp met William Kimber, he asked him what kept him so limber. "I dance every day, play the tune Shepherd's Hey, wave hankies and clash bits of timber."

On tour - Jackie Oates/Karen Tweed (Jackie - fiddle and Karen - free reed). Two thousand thirteen, this pair can be seen. Actual venues elsewhere you must read.

I was speaking to Louis Armstrong and asked, "Satch, tell me what is folk song?" "It includes everything, I ain't heard a horse sing!" he replied, but I think he was wrong.

The Mercury Award Nominations have already caused some jubilation. The reason for glee? In the list is Sam Lee. No result yet - deliberation!

There was a young man called Vic,
Whose limericks made everyone sick.
Not so much green with envy.
As recalling how when we
Had rhymes you could call virtuosic.

Well it's still not quite 12 noon.

A suggestion from someone called Woodson suggested my efforts weren't goodson. I don't give them much thought, not as much as I ought, but at least they're not rudeson or crudeson.

There has to be a reply in there somewhere, but I'm just off for my annual bath and I may be gone for some time. I'll see what the soap suds can come up with.

The person who started this thread must have got the wrong side of bed. "Commentry"? I say! It's lacking an "a". "Commentary" I wish I had said.

Right I'm back, fresh as a daisy and smelling of roses. What's more I can definitely recommend this new delousing cream which has just come on the market.

Unfortunately, the little grey cells are suffering from combinations of old age, decay, alcoholic stupor and watching too many Poirot repeats on the tv. The best I can come up with is:

A young fella, name of Jim Carroll,
Collected folk songs, sans apparel.
When asked how he dared,
He said "You stupid great nerd.
I'm wearing emperor's clothes under this barrel".

"I'll Be A Wild Rover No More" is a song I've heard over and o'er. It's not a bad song; it isn't too long; but I've heard it so much it's bore.

You sing the "Wild Rover"they say
If you Must please be far far away
It once was yelled loud
By the Thick sweatered Crowd
But Now it's a little Passé

Your password has now been reset,
And just so you never forget.
Write the bloody thing down
Where it will not be found.
Then you'll safe-surf the whole Internet.

Here's advice for which you have long waited
Keep your protection software updated.
By every phisher and spammer,
and fraudulent scammer,
You'll be both berated and hated.
