It's a natural rock formation that looks for all the world as if it's a giant paved path leading into the sea. There's a folk tale about how it used to be part of a huge bridge linking ireland to scotland.

Upon the suggestion of My guru always said, Micca's theme song for this grand event, Portaferry Mudcats, has been added to the Mudcat Songbook.

I know I didn't ask first, Micca darlin', but I knew you'd be chuffed to see it in there ;-)

All the best, Áine (who's hoping to get across the pond next year to make it to the Second Annual Loughstock!!)

Just before we left Leadfingers was talking to Linda (Mine host) with a view to him having a longer stay next year. She was making "big discount" type noises to him, so it may be worth Fib having a "what if" type chat with Linda to see what sort of a deal she might be willing to discuss.

I'll cobble together a web page of info about Portaferry to aid bookings and ease decisions.

Also everyone - we raised £41.40 for Mudcat in the raffle (where Cllr cleaned up!), and about £25 for the Marie Curie hospice. I'll get the cheques off a.s.a.p.

I've just worked out that given that to block book the whole hostel for 2 days costs £750, at a normal cost of £12 per person per night we would need 32 people (staying 2 nights each) for us to break even, anything more than that and we have a surplus. The hostel can hold up to 50. At such relatively short notice there were 18 booked in, with more time to plan (& save pennies) do we think we could get 32 or more to make it worth booking the whole place?

Mooman: Very glad that you've earned your lesson - so next year you and the lovely Lady McMoo must come to Portaferry weighed down with the best remedy (Jude's song in my ears)!! May I also place a request for those lovely little biscuits 'speculoos' or some such name - I usually raid the supermarkets in Belgium for them.

Raven: I can't believe that you've managed to get to your age in your household without knowing at least one song backwards - music must be in your genes surely!! You must get sorted for next year & don't forget to pass your test :-)

The couple who joined us in Barholm on Saturday night were Pat & ?? & I've sent a piccie to Micca for onward sending to Pene. They sang some very funny songs & kindly brought a fine bottle of their homemade gin (?? Tree Gin) which went down very well indeed. This is probably why I can't remember much of Saturday evening *g*

If I can get my back sorted out (probably an op) I'll work on improving my massage skills throughout the next year - despite reciprocation we can't leave all the hard work to Cllr can we? So Jude, please lay in stocks of that chocolate scented massage oil ready for the next Loughstock!

No Eric, it was cllr's port and my chocolate scented massage oil that kept disappearing and a variety of people then reappeared with smiles on their faces. Copious amounts of the smooth black stuff also kept disappearing along with people's ability to focus the next day, but perhaps the less said about that the better.

Hil, believe it or not, I have enough bottle tops to make about 4 big jingle sticks-well Skip says he "wants a big one". I've just got to be totally bored enough to do it!

Sinsull. You've obviously got it wrong! And I hate to correct you in public (me and Skip do corrrection in private!! Ask Alanww) But next year you need; Green wellies and camo-flage (deliberate spelling)suit. I told you the sheep are there, but hiding in the sprout stalks! Don't bring Asprin-the parrots eat em all (Paracetamol-old joke!) You do need to bring a size Double D cup bra, an out of tune bodhran, and a "mountain" green suit.As for your arse- if you leave it at home it will be safe, because you can't have your cake and eat it!

As for the port and massage oil-My Guru should explain that combination, but I warn you-if you get massaged, and drink port, you will have disappeared by the Sunday morning!!!!(Others have! and only re-appear in the ether!)

So if you're silly-sorry, brave enough to do it. Me n Skip will welcome you with open arms next year!!!

Ps bring your friends! Because you will neeed witnesses for the truth.

Cheers

Eric
