Come-All-Cats!

Singaround / Session at the Bull Pub in Barton-le-Clay, Bedfordshire, UK (use postcode MK45 4LL for map search) on Monday 3rd May, kicking off at 8.30pm ish. What a good way to end the Bank Holiday weekend :-)

All acoustic instruments (up to & including shaky eggs or pringles shakers *sigh*) & voices very welcome at this cosy venue and we're always glad to see new faces. If we get enough people & the pub is busy we'll see if we can get the function room opened up for us. Everywhere else will be closed, so come & join us!

It's held fortnightly to run in tandem with the University of Luton Music Workshop which is hosted at the University on alternate Saturday mornings.

Come if you can, but if you can't then perhaps you can come to the next one which will be on Monday 19th May, pop it in your diaries!

Well done Hilary - climb every mountain etc.

Should we organise a may pole?

I see May Day is now Europe Day - Is this correct?

Hi Ross, Europe Day is apparently on the 9th, so do some Maypole dancing before it requires a licence.

Thanks Piers

I didn't know that - Are they trying to hijack the bank holiday by taking the day off, on the Monday before the ninth (as in we take the nearest Monday after the 1st) - just a thought

Where is Europe - I thought it was down the M2 & through a tunnel?

But friends tell me that it's a mystical land full of hobbits, elves & nasty monsters

Does this explain Neil Kinnock?

Who's coming Monday?

Ross - I don't think they are trying hijack the bank holiday, as I can see from the website nothing, that anyone might notice, is happening at all.

In my experience, the hobbits, elves & nasty monsters of Europe are no worse than those of Bedfordshire.

However, rest assured that on Mayday I'll be dancing with the 'Harpenden Morris Persons' (actually, it's just me at the moment but I'm hoping to build up a side for next year) on the common from about 4.26am onwards.


MGAS - you mean you're not going to be at the workshop!

Ah yes, 'fraid so Piers me dear, will have to miss the workshop this weekend, but there appears to be a Shanty workshop at 10am on the Saturday monrning somewhere in Upton festival, so never fear, I shall get my 'fix' *G*

Have fun without me, when the Cat's away.....

Good luck with your recruitment for the Harpenden Morris persons.

Ross: I think you're right about the M2.

Well the first outing of the Harpenden Morris Persons went pretty well, I managed to build the side up to three (with the lady who sells the Big Issue in the high street, and 'barking' Sir Tarquin Ponsonby-Ramsbotham-Smyth, a local dignitary). We finally finished just after dawn when a council groundsmen informed us, that unless we put our clothes on he was going to call the police.

Happy Mayday everyone

We've just trashed the Macdonalds in the Vatican

Luckily we remembered to bring in our sandwiches

One of the nuns said - nice lunch box, popey

What does this mean?

Isn't Harpenden a bit cold for nuts in May

Hi Guru

Singing ref has just e-mailed Australia & Bull to me

So I only need Poor Murdered Men - where is zany mouse when you need her

Steve said he is possible, as well as Hamish (for Monday)

Keep mystical - we expect some answers to the meaning of life very soon

Many thanks to Steve for lyrics

Many thanks to everyone for coming along last night to our little bash

Hope fun was had by everyone

Thanks to Hamish for his long trek & all others who without their support, help & participation would not have helped me win this Oscar (sorry - wrong speech)

Evidently, Fred isn't dead & was last seen playing an F'sharp down the B2167

I started off going down to the Bull
While on the way, nature called
I stepped in a bush by the side of the road
And slipped on a very unsavoury toad
Across the tarmac, I quickly slid
To be hit by a caravan, driven by Sid
He tended my wounds & asked me my name
And he told me, he was willing to shoulder the blame
But I couldn't get cross & I sang him a song
And asked where he was going, could I come along
He was going to Woodstock, to join a rock band
And that's where it ends, I hope you understand
