I'll come clean. I've been in Funchal, Madeira, for a week. I'm in love with Madeira. I'm especially in love with Strelitzia reginae which grows everywhere, which is Madeira's national flower and which I'm going to grow at home. Today was International Tourism Day. How naff does that sound. But Funchal, a lovely city, put on some brilliant traditional dance events in the streets that, er, kind of put Morris slightly in the shade...(ducks)...I have videos... anyway, back to Blighty now and a miserable, long winter...

Funchal is of the nicest places to hang out. Jayz, I'm enamoured...

Easy come, easy go! Booked a holiday on a cruise ship on Friday evening, which was a music festival and we were going with my sister in law and her husband. Come this morning, the company has sold the ship and the whole caboodle is cancelled.


About the shortest booked holiday i have had, except when we have had off the cuff breaks.

Oh well, not really enough time to get excited about it!

Had a great weekend at the Stroud Folk Weekend did the sessions but on Saturday night I skived off to Stroud French Dance.

A couple who always turn up late came in and the guy looked a bit haggard. He never had a problem dancing before but on Saturday he apparently was struggling. Only after they shot away was I informed he had developed Alzheimer's.

Had I known I might have suggested they went to singing venues, he would know some of the songs at least. Apparently the brain is wired differently for music than speech, and sufferers can often sing songs they used to, where they struggle remembering other things. She is such a very keen dancer.

One confirmation for why I will dance till my legs wear out. You never know when it will be taken from you. Pass the Ibuprofen gel please.

Birthday celebrations now drawing to a close, with a visit by my son and his wife, who is from Mauritius. As reported elsewhere, we flew out there a few years back to celebrate their Hindu wedding. Sso their birthday present was 'a taste of Mauritus': lots of small foodstuffs that are difficult to obtain here, but they got her family to bring over when they visited a month ago. Very much looking forward to having "Madeleine moments".

This week one of the pubs I play in presented a cheque for 5000 euro to the Galway Hospice.

On a Tuesday night we play and sing for the assembled people in the pub and sell a CD, a compilation of various singers and musicians. Any monies raised go to the fund for the Galway Hospice.

The added bonus is that's it's always a great night too!!

I see the counterpart of this thread has died a death. Not sure what that proves, if anything, but it is interesting all the same.

And, yes, well done Tattie. I was never good enough to perform for charity. I think I would have drained money from them! But I have been active in helping to fundraise for a number of causes in the past and I can confirm that there is no better way to pay back into the community.

Just got in from seeing the Northern Ballet on "The Little Mermaid." Some astonishing dancing and highly recommended, but I miss when they were Northern Ballet Theatre, when they paid more attention to the theatrical aspects. Their versions of "A Christmas Carol", "Cinderella" and "The Nutcracker" all had a depth that I have rarely seen elsewhere.

Not had any posts for a couple of days so I guess we have done here. I found it interesting that although the premise was "Anything goes" it has been a peaceable place. Maybe the proviso "you are polite and not here just to argue" did work! There have been posts from people that would generally disagree with each other but none of the usual 'fighting talk'. I know there have been some posts deleted and I appreciate the efforts of the moderation team in doing that. I think it just goes to show that most of us can get on with each other and I would like to thank all the contributors for keeping to the spirit of the thread. I would have liked some posts from a couple of other people but I guess they had nothing to add really. All we need to do now is see if we can keep this up on other threads :-)

Very good day yesterday, as anticipated, but almost blown by traffic so that despite an early start we arrived for our coach with literally 1 minute to spare. There are standard tours of the Houses of Parliament where groups of around ten have a guide, or alternatively there are audio tours with headsets, but because ours was arranged through the MP, it was a personal tour of just my myself and my daughter and his secretary. I always prefer that kind of tour myself, because it gives you the flexibility to stay as long or as short a time on each bit, or to study things other people might not be as interested in, on the one hand, and then to ask questions on the other. But the biggest difference was that we were able to go to St Mary Undercroft (not my photos). This is reached via a set of gates labelled "pass holders only" and even our secretary had to notify the security people we were going there. But why did we want to go in particular? Because that is where Emily Davison's cupboard is. I was pleased to see a large information panel beside it, giving the story, but it seems a very British thing in some ways that it is in a part most people can't see.

Next, off to the Royal Opera House for the backstage tour. I hadn't appreciated just how large a building it is. The theatre, for those who have visited, is perhaps one quarter or one fifth of the total size of the building. It has six floors above ground and two underground. It contains what is, or perhaps was, the largest lift in Europe, which takes entire lorry and is used while transporting scenery. In renovations and other building work since the millennium they have been able to bring most of the auxiliary activities on site. So rehearsal rooms used to be about 45 minutes away - they didn't say but Sadler's Wells rings a bell for ballet rehearsals. Now they have three or four duplicates of the stage for various purposes - rehearsals, built sets for other current productions. We were lucky enough to see some rehearsals under way, but could only watch for a few minutes. Then in one of the rooms at the top of the building is where they make the props, which is a serious little machine shop, with separate rooms for the metal work, carpentry, glass fibre work and textiles, plus a properly vented spray room. all these are clustered round the main area where a mere handful of people are busy carving heads out of polystyrene amid a tumble of props - a chair with pig feet and ears, axes, turtles hung from the ceiling and fake tiger skin rugs.

I am afraid our celebrations got off to a shaky start about an hour after I last posted. My daughter is due a medical examination to find out if she has a problem - I will spare you the details. The need for an examination under anaesthetic was decided in April. The examination itself was then set for August. Shortly before it was cancelled and rebooked for October. Yesterday she got a letter saying it is cancelled again.

Are you a Nazi tonight,
Do you miss a good fight?
Are you sorry you joined KKK?
Does your memory stray to that bright sunny day
When you lynched raped and killed, those unlike you?
Does the media lie, and tell only fake news?
Is the world made of shit, and you are the glue?
Is your heart filled with hate, is pain and death your true fate?
Tell me Adolf, are you lonesome tonight?
I wonder if you're lonesome tonight

Field scabious is abundant round here. I get them mixed up. I have to remember field scabious dry, devils-bit wet. It's called devil's-bit because the root looks like it's been bitten off. The devil did it in anger at the Virgin Mary. I read it in a recent history book by a living historian.

My wife is away babysitting so I thought I might investigate an upmarket burger and cocktail place that has opened about a half a mile away. I look at the menu and the first two sides are 'fries' and 'gourmet chips'. What are you trying to do to me? I have no idea if 'gourmet chips' is to be read as American or English. If they are both the same basic thing, call them both fries or both chips. Otherwise I assume you are making a distinction and 'gourmet chips' are actually what UKers would call 'gourmet crisps'.

No, it turns out they are both fries/chips. The change in terminology is purely to irritate customers like me ...
