Bideford sounds nice! It has a cracking folk club at the Joiners Arms behind the Panier Market. Is that where you've fixed it for?
I will be going on their weekend away to Boscastle YH in March. But I'm not so good at the clogging, so perhaps I'll give it a miss in early February!

Kind friends and companions come join me in rhyme ...

I can't persuade the Shakespeare Morris Men that Clementine does not fit Cwm Rhondda but does fit perfectly to Austria (Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken/Deutschland Über Alles). The beginnings of both tunes are too similar, and they always go off into the wrong one! Bastards.

I have *ahem* 'inspected the facilities' at York House, havign only ever been in the downstairs. Mr. Adams kindly gave me a guided tour and discussed options.

What he proposes is to sign the whole building, all 3 floors of neo-classical glory (albeit substantially 'modernised' in the 1960s) to us for the weekend, with areas being openable on request. Facilities available which I wasn't aware of include a certain amount of computer use (for posting bulletins for non-attenders, and resolving lyric disputes) and a snooker table, for god's sake.

As I mentioned somewhere else, there is a soundproof room for music after the PEL stops, with a loft above which could be suitable as a quiet sleeping area. The main room, on the ground floor, is very large, there are various bits of squashy furniture which we can arrange to make it a comfortable loungy sort of place should we wish.

Cost is being discussed even as we speak, I'll post more when I get details. Now, any questions?

Noreen,

Re: "Steve Parkes has offered to serenade me with lullabyes

The Mudcat silence from Steve today/tomorrow is due to the fact that he's trying to move house at the moment. Everything was all packed and loaded yesterday, but the money from the buyer was apparently stuck somewhere, and so completion got delayed a day. Finger's crossed Steve will be back online tomorrow!

Meanwhile Micca, when are you going to come visit us again? Paul has an 18 year old and a 21 year old I'm sure you'd like to be introduced to, strathisla and craggenmore. Jude

Is Stony Stratford really ready for this?

I am torn between my usual B&B cop-out and savouring the aforementioned facilities. But ..... I take up a lot of room and I snore and I have age-related requirements that involve frequent nocturnal forays. My night sight is dreadful and I trip over things. Perhaps I should just stay at home and join in on PalTalk!

Perhaps I could sleep on the snooker table.

As to the snooker table, do we have to supply our own balls?
And I'm not playing with god again, I'm sure he cheated last time when he had a break of 148!
The triangle might come in usefull for Cajun music, though.
On second thoughts, perhaps we should call it the *pool room*, that would keep the skinny dippers out of sight!!!

Dead Horse, I don't know about you but I will bring my own balls - though I'd never use them for playing snooker, it would be too painfull ;-)

Apropos painful: calling it the pool room might lead to serious injuries for the skinny dippers...

Lanfranc, just sleep at the terminal point of your nightly forays - then you do not even have to get up to do what you have to do at that time of night. Snoring there would also be no problem...

Hey folks--I'm back!!

Noreen, I'll be happy to serenade you with lullabies, if I can get the usual writen permission in triplicate from Mrs Parkes. (Talking of oysters, Sue & I had a dozen on the night we were wed. Only four of them worked.) The move went OK ... eventually. I nearly was buried under a pile of 78s! (But more Layton & Johnson and Peter Dawson than Paul Robeson.) Got up this morning in my new house (yes, it was me wandering around starkers putting lights on at random, forgetting there weren't any curtains up) and found the mice had gnawed holes in the membrane of my kazoo; I think there's a Christams carol lurking in there somewhere!

The central heating is very easy, just follow these instructions.1.Use a knife to split the foil. 2. Grasp it firmly by the neck, and, holding the top in the other hand 3.Twist and pull until after a slight squeak followed by a popping sound, the odour of peat will fill your nostrils. 4.Obtain one small glass, half fill it and give it to your partner. 5. Insert the neck of said object in your mouth, and inhale deeply. After awhile you won't feel the cold, or anything else.*BAG*... Big alchoholic grin. Hope the new home is filled with joy.

Listen you guys, all this talk of walking around aimlessly in the nuddies while turning things on, has got the missus in a bit of a fluster. I've had to see to her twice now, and it's more than a shantman can bear.
No more, please.
And while we're on the subject, the second thing she looks for on entering a room full of folkies (the first is food!!!) are banjo players and wooden floors. So watch out.
