Subject: punch the horse june thread
From: ossonflags
Date: 06 Jun 03 - 05:37 AM

Ok! someone had to do it now that the 'cat is back on line.
Us'uns is having this weekend off.

Dont know what the rest are doing to amuse themselves, but I have a suspicion that oakers may well be polishing up his sculptoring arts and after hearing the axemans new song last sunday, he could well be polishing something else.

I am going to the robin hoods bay this weekend to disport with the raggytashed one and that.Maybe see one or two of you there?

Well done that man, getting jolly bored without the old thread to warble on, don't you know. Cabbage crate over the blighty and all that
Moustache is firmly waxed and twisled for this forthcoming weekend frivolities in the dear old Bay, Loins oiled and girded. New Goggles (alas not scented)polished, strings taut and tense ready for twanging (can't beat a good old twanging I say, makes one glow) So roll on this evening and God help the poor unsuspecting buggers, they won't know it's coming and when they do, it will be all over.

Over to you Ossen old chap, see you this evening, Jolly dee

If Punch the Horse is like punch the cow, i.e. there are cow punchers so there must be horse punchers.
THEN IT FOLLOWS
If there are cowpokes, then there must be horsepokes.
THE QUESTION IS
Was this why they invented mounting blocks??

I'll get me boots and saddle.....Giok

Sweetfire dearest, a toe-rag is an unrealiable, sneaky, despicable, oaf, given to untruths, backbiting and poor behaviour. They tend to be vulgar coarse and common.
Why pray do you ask, have you had the misfortune to be badly treated by one such, if so I shall call upon the gallant Oakleaf to come to your rescue whilst steadying my own mount in readiness to fly to your aid. Sadly the gallant Oakleaf could rescue you before I leave the leafy lanes of Kirklees (home to our icon of virtue the noble Robin)

On the other hand,

"Me toe rags round me blistered feet, me face as brown's a toad"
A line from the song "Tramps and Hawkers"

I have actually seen evidence of this when I was travelling and stayed in the "Spike"(that gets mentioned in another song as well) otherwise known as the Camberwell Reception centre.The Long Distance Lads prefered this method of adorning the feet rather than the more conventional sock - so there.

Down and out in Paris and London, is the book to read for info on "Spikes"
"And up in the Spike you'll find them"

Raggy, I'm suprised at you ! From what I know, the term toe rag developed from the Marsden area. It referred to the undesirables, common and uncooth etc (as you rightly described) who hired themselves out to "toe" (lying on their backs, propelling the barge by foot against the tunnel sides and roof) the narrow boats through the trans pennine tunnel at Marsden. Though the term rapidly spread. I'm sure that it the definitve definition. But I'm sorry to say I can't at the moment recall the original source of my information.

Well you learn something new every day, didn't know that, but then with me coming from Gods County over the hill in the County Palatine of Lancashire, the county of Kings are you surprised I know nothing of the low life you mention.
When John Wesley went to Marsden to preach, he was stoned by the locals who were, he said, the most godforsaken people he had ever encountered .................there's been a lot of in-breeding sice Wesleys day

Who's June Thread? Is she the new singer with Punch the Horse? What has happened to May Thread and April Thread? Are they all sisters?

Glad I don't live in Hull. Too confusing...

Cheers

Oh yeah, John, will definately be about. PTH are playing the Sun Inn on the Friday night, and I'll be hosting the singaround there on the Sunday afternoon.

Thanks for coming to the session yesterday everybody. Don't think I was a very organised host....will do better next time, promise!

Enjoyed your session Pete,good to see a good crowd there, session is reallytaking off now, visiters from all over the country such as Noreen etc, you were a bit drunk when I saw you, looks liked you'd had a good day!

John

Posted by:sweetfire - 6/2/2003 10:08:13 AM

Ok so not too many places i could have spotted ya then!!! Does theresa still do a session at all in The Tap ans Spile John?
Is that on the 20th Pete?

Hello peeps.
I personally thought yesterday wasn't as good as sessions have been - but I put that down to ..... TOO MANY SINGERS!!!!! Hey before anyone jumps down my throat I like singing but I like tunes more and that was just the way yesterday was. Also the prude in me came out I didn't think some of the songs were appropriate considering the number of kids that were around! any way nuf said.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:John from Hull - 6/2/2003 10:14:28 AM

The Tap & Spile sessions seem a bit quiet at the moment, as many of the regulars moved away, Jock & Sheila to Whitby, John& Christine to Beverley etc, shame really as there were some brilliant sessions in there a few years ago.I am starting a new music venue in this area soon though, I will letyou know when it opens.

John


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:John from Hull - 6/2/2003 10:18:32 AM

Hi John, I didn'tget there till about 6PM so can't really comment, but I do prefer mixed sessions, I especially like the Sloop.

John


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:smallpiper - 6/2/2003 10:20:37 AM

No Pete it was a general comment and may say more about me and my sensibilities than anything else. You should know by now that if I was going to have a go at you it would have been done in private!
So where will the musicians sessions be at Beverley then?




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:Jon Freeman - 6/2/2003 10:26:47 AM

I think I'm the same as you smallpiper. I could get some enjoyment even out of a night of nothing but unacompanied singing but to me, nothing beats the buzz you can get out a group of instrumentalists playing together.

Wev'e just lost our Wed night session venue - things felt a bit strange for a couple of weeks and last week, we got a message from one of the bar maids that the landlord didn't want us any more. Not quite sure why he couldn't have told us himself, it's not like we get nasty with people and I think we have all been around long enough to know that loosing a venue is, unfortunately something that you get used to...

Anyway, I went in to Norwich last night to make up for it and had a great session.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:John from Hull - 6/2/2003 10:27:09 AM

Sweetfire-Have you been to the Tuesday night music sessions at the Tap &Spile yet? It is run by The Hutt Street Gang, a young folkie type band, it's Jim Eldons son and his freinds. Smallpiper-Not sure exactly where the music sessions are, but last year the musicians tended to mainly meet up at The Tiger, I know John is running a Harp, Mandolin and Whistle workshop at oddfellows.

John


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:smallpiper - 6/2/2003 10:34:17 AM

The Tiger is usually the venue but it gets so full in there that no one stands a chance unless the have a very loud accordian! (mmm maybe I should take my Highland pipes!) Does anyone know the score at Nellies - I've started sessions there myself over the last 4 or 5 years on the staurday which have been good - but with the change in landlordiness and her attatude towards the sunday session????




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:sweetfire - 6/2/2003 10:35:07 AM

JFH-No i havent been to Tap for ages! Must go soon. It's a shame about the session because there where really good, first time i saw Mick was there and it was theresa who really got me into singing, like i said, must go again soon. Tuesnites sound fun, is it worth going? What is it like?
Well i was glad there wasnt lots of twidly-didly stuffon sunday, it makes a change!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:sweetfire - 6/2/2003 10:37:47 AM

But i do agree with JFH, mixed sessions are best!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:smallpiper - 6/2/2003 10:42:07 AM

So Sweetfire you don't want us twiddly diddly players to turn up anymore? (Just cranking the handle)




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:John from Hull - 6/2/2003 10:46:08 AM

John-I get the impression that Nellies is no longer the place to be, also I was speaking to John Kelly recently [Lindas husband], he tells me that most of the folk club regulars have given up on the place, and mostof them go to Cottingham instead, I suppose you could look in there anyway and give it a try.

I reckon a good place though would be The Woolpack, it already has a tune session there with a good following hosted by Ged the Piper, it is a bit out of the way and never gets too busy. I have Geds contact details here, so if you want to contact him to arrange something let me know, and i'll pass them on.

John


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:sweetfire - 6/2/2003 10:46:12 AM

dont be silly john!! just expressing my opinion like you did. however, are you suggesting the session would be better without us singers?


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:sweetfire - 6/2/2003 10:48:45 AM

Ged's sessions are good, some fine musicians there, and with rather strange intruments might I add!!!



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:The DeanMeister - 6/2/2003 10:51:33 AM

John, it was probably down to me doing a crap job as compere yesterday. Sorry mate. Tunemeisters are always as welcome as singers, as well u know. Though I have little control over who turns up on the day.

Yesterday was an odd session, granted. Numbers seemed a bit down, and enthusiasm for the event seemed a tad low, but it got going in the end. Hopefully future sessions will be more to your liking. Personally I like a good mixture of songs and tunes. I only sung three songs all afternoon.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:sweetfire - 6/2/2003 10:57:16 AM

i thought those two little girls who play the little stickthingys (sorry, dont know what they are called) are really gettin good, they both have some balls!!! i existed in my own little world at that age, never mind performing something in public!!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:John from Hull - 6/2/2003 10:59:49 AM

Sweetfire-Tuesday nights are good, plenty of different instruments, fiddle, melodeons, guitar, banjo etc even a full drum kit and double bass!, they are a young group, anyone is welcome to join them to sing a song or playalong with an instrument, or do a solo, Jim Eldon often sings and accompanies himself on fiddle, he is an excellent fiddler, go along sometime, you will enjoy it.

John


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:smallpiper - 6/2/2003 11:06:49 AM

John fra Hull - I know about the Woolpack me and Nik Nak have visited it on several occasions.

No Sweetfire - I am not sugesting anything of the sort, and yes those girls (flute and Oboe) should be encouraged (can someone give them some dots for trad stuff though)

Like I said Pete it may say more about me and my sensibilities than what actually took place.

Anyone going to the Newport session tonight?




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:sweetfire - 6/2/2003 11:07:00 AM

what, he sings and plays the fiddle at the same time? wow, never seen that been done before!!! Well i will have to tell my Daddikins what you have just told me, i think he will be very glad that there is something going on in the Tap.
well must go and try to pass a Biology exam now, i know all about sex chromosomes...


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:smallpiper - 6/2/2003 11:09:19 AM

jim Eldons been on the scene in Hull for century's and yes he sings and plays fiddle at the same time.
Good liuck with the exam SF.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:John from Hull - 6/2/2003 11:14:25 AM

Pipes-Where is the Newport session? I am supposed to be working, but I might go to the session if the shop is quiet. Whats the session like?

sweetfire-yes Jim plays fiddle and sings at the same time! He doesn't play it on his chin, but rests it on his left arm. Tell your dad to go to Tap & Spile, I hav'nt seen him in there for ages, I think the lsst time I saw him in there was when he bought one of my mandolins off me.Good luck with your exam.

Thanks for the info smallpiper, I might see you there then.
swetfire-I just noticed your comment about the "strange instruments" at The Wooolpack, if you mean Hannahs mandolin , then they are not strange, I play one of them!

John


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:Mrs.Duck - 6/2/2003 3:44:02 PM

Word on the grapevine is that the landlord at Nellies is into old time american stuff and has requested a session during the festival.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:sweetfire - 6/2/2003 4:27:52 PM

JFH - Im afraid i cant remember many of their names now but i think some funny-looking mandolin was amongst them.
And thank for the luck you guys (johnX2), i think it worked, exam went quite well, alot better than expected!

Jon, the quirk of fate that caused me to darken your door last year has turned again, and I will be down your way (Suffolk, anyway) on Tuesday 17th JUne. Is that session still going at the Temple Bar, in Norwich or has the venue or day moved? That was a cracking session I came to, that piper and guitar were superb, and some top flight flautists, too. I'd love to come and play another session.

Peter, I was loosing my grip on the real world after toping down so much Landlord, before I wobbled homeward on me bike, but I really enjoyed meself, thought the balance was cool, and being Mr Oakley's representative on Earth, he has asked me to convey likewise sentiments. You done good, kidder!

Greg, we changed to a Wednesday night and moved from the Temple Bar to the Plasters Arms because the tv soccer got too loud. As you will have gathered from my previous post to this thread, we have just lost that venue.

We are currently without a venue and I don't think we will have one next week. Maybe a decision will be made but a couple of us think it would perhaps be best to wait till next week when the piper and guitarist return from holiday and we are at "full strength" before finalising anything. I'll let you know when we know more.

Jon




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

rubbish you just took the wrong exam!




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:Jon Freeman - 6/3/2003 1:56:22 PM

Calculators! When I took my O-Levels, around 1976, calculators were allowed in class but not in exams. Do they still have the books with logarithms and other tables? I quit school before completing my A-levels but I think rules were the same.

Much later in life, I took a computer course which had a maths unit called "quantative analysis". The emphasis there was completely different. Everyone was expected to buy a calculator and a programmable was reccomended - I still have my old casio fx-4500p now. We also were expected to use spreadsheets. The maths wasn't hard but for that unit, the emphasis was on knowing your tools and getting results out quickly.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:sweetfire - 6/3/2003 2:42:13 PM

Erm, no they dont have books with 'logarithms' in, what the hell are they anyway? At G.C.S.E there are two math exams, and only one are you allowed to use a calculator on. Which is where it gets stuipd because you dont get different topics to learn for the calc test and then diff. topics for the non-calc test, you just have to try and guess with topics with appear on which test. So half the stuff im revising today will be a waste of time because it wont be on the exam tomorrow, but knowing which half is useless is the difficult part!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:Jon Freeman - 6/3/2003 3:03:57 PM

sweetfire, I'd have to leave it to someone better than me at maths to explain what logarithms are.

One place you could use them though was to multiply. You would look up the log of each number and add these up. You would then look up the anti-log and that would give you the answer. Similarly, you could subtract to logs to perform a long division and aslo multiply a log to get powers, e.g. to square a number, look up the log, multiply that by 2 and "anti-log" the result. Also, I once wrote a small program to convert a number from any base to another base and that used logs, e.g. on a "scientific" calculator, I could type "log 8/ log 2" the result of 3 tells me 8 is 2 to the power 3 (or 2 cubed). I can't remeber the theroy behind any of this and am not sure I ever really understood it.

The other tables in the book included functions like sine, cosine, tangent, etc. Things scientific calculators have on them.

Good luck with your exams BTW.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:sweetfire - 6/3/2003 3:14:11 PM

TAN, COS AND SIN? we still do those, and I bloody hate them!! Its all part or Trigonometry, but anybody would want to know bout it is beyond me!! However, what you have just described seems even more confusing than what ive been doing. In fact i cant believe you've remembered something like that (not sayin your brain cells are incapable of it or anything!!!)
Thanxs for the luck, not really too confident bout 2mz.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:sweetfire - 6/3/2003 3:29:16 PM

sorry that last sentence on the above entry should end 'but WHY anybody'


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:Jon Freeman - 6/3/2003 3:29:20 PM

sweetfire, perhaps I remember bits because we used them a lot and you could do things like a long division much easier with them. I was in the sort of "overlap period" - pocket calculators didn't really become affordable until I was maybe in the 4th form and then maybe you would be looking at a 4 function calculator perhaps with a memory, no sin, cos, tan, etc.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:sweetfire - 6/3/2003 3:45:06 PM

Jon, 4th Form? How old where you when you was in that? Never heard that before, but if you dont live where i do i suppose it would be different...


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:Skipjack K8 - 6/3/2003 3:50:06 PM

The relation of logarithms to common numbers is that of numbers in an arithmetical series to corresponding numbers in a geometrical series, so that sums and differences of the former indicate respectively products and quotients of the latter. Simpl, really. 4th Form, Year 10.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:Jon Freeman - 6/3/2003 3:56:12 PM

Im UK Sweetfire. I must admit I dont know the systems now. Mine was when you go up from primary school to secondary school at the age of about 11, each year was called a form, in that way so in your first year, you were a 1st former, etc. The exams were GCE then. Normally you would take your O-Levels as a 5th former. You would then go onto the 6th form for A-levels. That was a little bit different as the 6th form lasted 2 years and people were called "first year 6ths and second year 6ths (I only lasted about 3 months of 1st year 6th BTW).

Because of a move, I experienced 2 types of education systems. When I first started at "big school" I was in a comprehensive. We moved to Kent and I ended up at a Grammar School (boy's only too).

I liked log tables, but never really got the hang of slide rules. Think I've still got one somewhere... and I still use my original calculator. :0)
I thoroughly enjoyed the session on Sunday Pete, good friends and splendid music.
If sp's dig wasn't aimed at the Deanmeister's new exposition, can't think what other songs were inappropriate- 'We never mention Aunt Clara"? Or perhaps it was my choice of songs-to-slit-your-wrists-by?
Nothing there that I would have been uncomfortable for my children to hear; in fact I think children would be less embarrassed at Deanie's song than some adults... my kids have had a giggle at it with me. It was FUNNY! (Wasn't it, Pete????)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:sweetfire - 6/3/2003 9:43:56 PM

The Cat SAt
On An Orange
And Had Hysterics......thats the song/ryhme we were told, and it does work. The diff. bit is applying it to a bloody triangle!

Neway, nuff said, Noreen; did you travel far to be at Pete's session? I found Pete's song in question quite tittersome !!!
Also, does anybody actually know any HAPPY folk songs??? That start happy and end happy, no one dies or gets blown up etc etc.... because I don't think I do!!

S'fire



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:Jon Freeman - 6/3/2003 9:54:41 PM

Sorry Sweetfire you had also asked "when" - say about 1974/75. Here is a page with the one of the first calculators I remember people having. As you can see from there, you were looking at £43.95 in 1973 but they dropped to £8.95 (in 1977).




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:Mrs.Duck - 6/3/2003 10:03:22 PM

Well good luck with the exam tomorrow anyway sweetfire even if they don't let you have a calculator! Must admit to being the idiot who forgot their log tables for the O level and had to do everything by the looooooong method!




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:Noreen - 6/3/2003 11:33:21 PM

Jon, thanks for that link: the Vintage Calculators Web Museum is a hoot! Mine was/is a Sinclair Scientific, which was the coolest one to have in those days, tiny compared with the Casios and Commodores.
I didn't see you there on Sun, sweetfire, and I was looking out for you- you weren't in your previous place by the window, obviously. Say hi if you see me again, please!
Yep, I drive for about 2hrs each way to get there, it's that good. And it would not be true to say i don't know any happy songs... I do have one happy love song in my repertoire *grin* but I tend to be drawn to the wistful ones for some reason. I think other peeps do jolly songs better than I do. But I'm trying- praps I'll surprise you all one day.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:smallpiper - 6/4/2003 10:39:16 AM

Hey Noreen I wasn't having a go at Pete there were other songs that I considered inapropriate (Harry G's for instance) I also said that perhaps what I was saying said more about MY sensibilities than what happened and if I was going to have a go at Pete I would have done so to his face. And I am not asking for your opinion on the matter just stating what I felt! grrrrrrr




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted by:sweetfire - 6/4/2003 10:49:25 AM

Noreen i was sat in front of the window at the end, i was the girl in pink top who asked pete, then mick, what 'ossonflags' meant. That was you who was sat on a stool next to pete when i asked wasn't it? But most of the time i was either at bar or sat reading the paper!!!! And i will say hi, if i don't go shy and chicken out!
I think im gonna make the effort to learn ahappy song, nah, dying people are far more interesting.....
Thanks for the link Jon


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Noreen I made it quite clear that it was my opinion I was stating and not a general opinion of all in the session. I would never presume to speak for everyone there. Now lets not fall out over what would appear to be a misunderstanding eh?

Sweetfire get on with your revision pot noodles are bad for the brain!

I'm not in the business of falling out with people, John, as a certain other person there on Sunday could probably confirm.

Totally off topic but I notice this thread is about 80 posts long and that all new people are viewing 1st page first.

You don't have to do either of these but some of you may prefer to go to mebership and look at the options there. If you are reading threads regualrly, it could for example be better to set things up so that links from the forum page cause a topic to open up with the last page rather than the first page. There is also a reverse sort option but I find that confusing.

No problem John. I've enjoyed it and having extra people here! I don't think I could take too many PTH type threads all running at one time though. Working, as I do, on a very tight budget, I try to prioritise music (though as I've said before, I can take a LOT more than our current normal traffic and processing usage is, but not up to MC volumes). I selfishly hope though that people have had the oppertunity to see what can be achieved with very little capital outlay and why I try to prioritse the way I do.

As for Hull, will meet you up there one day. I still want to see that sea place...

Congrats on getting the new set of plumbing smallpipes, one of my favourite instruments.They would have to be loud indeed to beat the accordian player in the Robin Hoods Bay on saturday arternoon, who tried (in vain) to drown me out at Raggys sesh in the "Dolphin"

Great weekend, Raggy and karen and Colin and George and Dereck and the rest of the Robin Hoods bay red eyed formation drinking team.

Just a comment on petes sun session.I think what makes that session so special is that it is differant every time.I can speak with a little authority having attended since the start nearly five years ago and missed about twice.In that time I have made loads of new chums and seen seen loads of people, especialy the young ones been given lots of encouragement and support to dip their toes in the magic pool of music. I, like most of us believe that the best sessions are the ones that have a good balance of tunes and song, but sometimes it just doesnt work that way.I can take the point about songs that are a little near the nuckle in mixed company, but that I am afraid is the nature of the beast - have a listen to Bert lloyds "Bird in the Bush" for example.I remember being asked by Rachel,Deanies missus to tape her some shanties for a project she was doing at school, which I did with some trepidation, as some of those were a little risque to say the least.She reported back that the kids loved them,and did I have any more!!.

People enjoying themselves ,treating people with respect and doing what they do well is what counts,whether a singer musician or a listener. I have seen loads of that since the start of the "first sunday in the month" thrashes.Long may it continue and lets keep music live!!!!

It's by far the best session I've ever even heard about, and the fact that it accomodates all styles, all ages and all states of drunkenness is why. Long may it continue to be the main date in our diary every month! I was very glad that Pete had the opportunity to give his enormous penis an airing.

Karen, Edinburgh hardly noticed me.....but the complete animals that I was with, now that's a different matter. The fondest memory for me was being sat outside a pub on Rose Street, in hot sun all afternoon, watching, er, the world go by with 15 chaps, and consuming splendid ale. We pulled two hen parties off the street, as you do. Whistling at passers by, in the time honoured tradition (I never should have built that patio). Then at about 6pm, they all fell totally silent, watching a particularly fine specimen of the feminine gender walk past (with her boyfriend I might add), when somebody started clapping. It cracked me up. The entire population sat outside of the pub burst into spontanious applause, much to the poor girls embarrassment. It was polite applause, much as if she had just hit a four at cricket.

Well, I thought it was funny, anyway! More stories available on request. Such as my startling Freddy Mercury impression on Thursday night at the Karioke bar. Crazy Little Thing Called Love. And don't anybody ask me about La Vida Loca please....it wasn't my idea!

There is a relationship between Oakley and Oaklet. Mr Oakley had himself cloned in order to be at two places at the same time, notably PTH & Cara gigs & also to enable him to satisfy the desires of the Dagenham Girl Pipers...too many for one man.The clone is called Oaklet and the relationship is a dynamic one with the names being used reciprocally so that no-one knows who is the original and who is the clone which sort of defeats the object.
As to where he is......I don't know. I don't know the answers to your other questions either.

LH - I understand that an Oaklet is a little Oakley. And a little Oakley is more than enough for anyone. (You can get the Dagenham Girl Pipers to confirm that.)

I can usually tell where Oakley is, as the prevailing wind in this area wafts scents of Oakley over the intervening four or so miles. But the wind has shifted due west, so yer on yer own.

For your bicycle question, I can confirm that I am Englishman and operate my bicycle in that manner. Of course you'll need the views of the other 20-odd million of us to confirm your hypothosis.

Well, we're getting somewhere now. I had strongly suspected that Oaklet was closely related to Oakley, and there you are. Fascinating. I wonder if Ms Penelope Rutledge is aware of the Dagenham Girl Pipers episode? If so, there could be trouble, but I think she is in any case very distracted right now with the Malcolm Buggerol scandal which has all of Twillingsgate in a ferment, so I hear. She is attempting to gain protective custody of the sheep, Millie...Buggerol's pet/companion/muse...or whatever. It's a very B-a-a-a-a-d business indeed.

I'm glad we're making progress on the important matter of how an Englishman mounts his bicycle. I am quite excited that my theory is now 1/20 millionth of the way toward complete empirical confirmation, and I eagerly await the arrival of further evidence to support it.

The tandem unicycle remains an elusive item, but I have hopes that one may be located in Australia at any time.

I will check in again in a while and see how it's going.

I have heard that the incidence of perversion and sexual deviance is higher in South Ferriby than anywhere else in the entire English-speaking World! This worries me, because I am afraid that Oakley (or Oaklet) might be in some danger of losing his moral purity or being accosted in some way that might be deemed offensive and cause an upset to his state of mind that could only be cured through years and years of frightfully expensive counseling.

Perhaps he should move to a much safer place, such as my hometown of Orillia, Ontario, Canada (the "city that never wakes"). It's a nice, decent place in which to bring up your kids, eh?

I also have it on good authority (the South Ferriby Straw Stocking Knitters Association) that the social life in said South Ferriby would be reduced to the pre Oaklet past-times of communal mud sifting and grass counting. Apparently there is only one person who is nostalgic for those good old days.

Sorry for the Norwich interruption but...

Here you go Greg.

We have found a landlord who seems really keen on live music and even has a PEL!!! The pub is "The Nelson" on Nelson St.

We met on a Monday (a bad night for some of us) this week but are moving to a Thursday with possible alternation with Wednesday before hopefully settling in on the Wednesday night. He's trying to work around existing darts fixtures at the moment but appears to like us and wants to give us a good regular home.

The same pub already has a regular session on the Tuesday night. As far as I understand it, it is mostly students from the UEA and may (or may not) be a bit of a begginners session at times. I spoke to Bill (the organiser) last night and he said he's quite happy having others dropping in and joining in so if you fancy a meet and giving it a whirl, let me know and I'll get down there.

Jon

The 13th June gig at South Ferriby is cancelled

There are two gigs on saturday 14th, one in Hessle int arternnon (wedding) one in Roos int evening (fund raiser)

The 20th June is in the "Sun " beverley fri night (start of festival)- with the lovely Nikki - so Oakley is not doing long distant playing between there and the "Moulders Arms"

Wow. Lotta brick buildings. That is one ugly river, man, but it's got an impressive bridge. It looks like you've got some lovely forest areas around South Ferriby. I note that there is a little marina alongside the river, with nice blue water in it, and I wonder if the "Penelope R." is tied up there? I remember hearing about that boat way back when.

I am rather taken with the lovely Mrs Drinkall. She has a very fetching manner. I intend to drop in at # 21 when I visit.

The ugly brown river consists not of blood but of tiny bits of England on their way to become the Netherlands. Those bits get an earlier use of the Euro. And it also displays that Yorkshire and Lincolnshire are among our more adventurous counties.

HARD TIMES FALL UPON ROCKING HORSE IN NORWAY

FREDRIKSTAD, Norway - I shudder to think of what two thieves had on their minds when they maliciously tore the three foot penis off of Norway's largest rocking horse. The giant toy reportedly was stripped of its manhood at its home, a scout camp in Fredrikstad. Police are still searching the area for two men that were said to have been acting suspiciously in the area. The masculine horse, which was formerly known as Baldor, has since been give the female name Haldis since its unfortunate castration.

It was Colin Thompson!

Either that, or he feels his own equipment is not quite large enough or durable enough to satisfy the entire troupe of the Dagenham Girl Pipers for more than a rather short time. My own experience of lusty young women on the make suggests to me that even one of them is enough to reduce the average man to a worn-out husk in a relatively short time (like a few weeks or perhaps months in some cases), so think what a whole band of them could do!

I can think of no other good reason for stealing a 3 foot wooden penis off a rocking horse...and no sane reason at all, for that matter.

Hi LH. Returning to you question about the forests around South Ferriby, we call them plantations or spinneys. If they produced willow shoots for the basket industry and were managed by pollarding the trees, they are referred to as coppices. We use them to hide the bodies of skinned melodionists. In South Ferriby, they have blindingly obvious names such as "Top Plantation", "Middle Plantation" and oh bugger, I can't remember the name of the other one. But it is a bit further down the hill towards the river Ancholme upon which the Cannesesque lifestyle of the South Ferriby Marina society flourishes, fuelled by the oxygen of consumerism and blatant displays of conspicuous wealth.

You don't just hit it, one of the reasons that Bodhrans have such a bad name is that some people do just that, hit them. Played properly they are a wonderful sensitive percussion instrument that should keep the rest of the players in time. By beating them in different places or by incresing/decreasing pressure on the skin using the palm of the hand to apply tension a good Bodhran player can create glorious nuances of sound.
Sadly most people just beat the S H one T out of them.

Clary Sage
Chamomile
Eucalyptus
Valerian
Lavender
Thyme
Blend 5-6 drops of oil with 10mls of carrier oil (grapeseed is the most commonly used) & massage in.
Or very soothing for muscle/joint pain.Make a compress by adding 2 drops of essential oil to 200ml of either hot or cold water, fold a natural piece of fabric such as cotton into several layers, soak in the solution, squeeze out the excess then lay over the affected area for at least an hour, resoaking at intervals.

No jOhn they aren't highland pipes they are border pipes - like a bigger version of the smallpipes but with a sound (and volume) that is closer to the highland pipes plus I can get various notes not available on the small or highland pipes like G#, C natural,E flat and F natural which can make them sound a bit middle eastern! much fun!(and of course allows me to play a broader range of music)

Lyrics for you to learn Mr Dean!!!


COMBINE HARVESTER (BRAND NEW KEY)
12/06/1976 - 2 weeks at #1 - 13 weeks on chart

I drove my tractor through your haystack last night
(ooh aah ooh aah)
I threw me pitchfork at your dog to keep quiet
(ooh aah ooh aah)
Now something's telling me
That you'm avoiding me
Come on now darling you've got something I need

Cuz I got a brand new combine harvester
An' I'll give you the key
Come on now let's get together
In perfect harmony
I got twenty acres
An' you got forty-three
Now I got a brand new combine harvester
An' I'll give you the key

She made I laugh ha ha

I'll stick by you, I'll give you all that you need
We'll 'ave twins and triplets
I'm a man built for speed
And you know I'll love you darlin'
So give me your hand
But what I want the most
Is all they acres of land

Cuz I got a brand new combine harvester
An' I'll give you the key
Come on now let's get together
In perfect harmony
I got twenty acres
An' you got forty-three
Now I got a brand new combine harvester
An' I'll give you the key

Ooaah she's a lovely bit of stuff an' all

For seven long years I've been alone in this place
Eat, sleep, in the kitchen, it's a proper disgrace
Now if I cleaned it up would you change your mind
I'll give up drinking scrumpy and that lager and lime

Cuz I got a brand new combine harvester
An' I'll give you the key
Come on now let's get together
In perfect harmony
I got twenty acres
An' you got forty-three
Now I got a brand new combine harvester
An' I'll give you the key

Who loves ya baby ha

Weren't we a grand couple at that last wurzel dance
I wore brand new gaters and me cordouroy pants
In your new Sunday dress with your perfume smelling grand
We had our photos took and us holding hands

Now I got a brand new combine harvester
An' I'll give you the key
Now that we'me both past our fifties I think that you and me
Should stop this galavanting and will you marry me
Coz I got a brand new combine harvester
An' I'll give you the key

Aahh yu're a fine looking woman and I can't wait to get me 'ands on your land

jOhn, do you see the 'big letters' moving across the screen? I used 'marquee' which works in Internet Explorer but anyone viewing in Netscape wouldn't get the effect. Just wondering how webTV deals with it?

To make letters big, put H1 in triangular brackets < > before what you want to say and /H1 in triangular brackets < > at the end to switch it off.

H1 is the biggest heading, H6 is small (think that's what I wrote 'hee hee' in the 7:12 am post)

Hey! :0)



And to change colour, put font color=red in triangular brackets at the start, and turn it off with /font at the end (in triangular brackets again).
Color has to be speeled the US way or it isn't recognised :0(

Always check (using Preview function) before posting to see whether it will work.

Here endeth lesson 2.

Nice one; the famed DeanMeister asking ME for lessons..... *big grin*

Karen, don't turn off the H1 after every word; turn it on at beginning of sentence and off at the end... understand? Coz it's a heading, every time you put a new H command, it puts it on a new line.

Alternatively, can use big and small command (in triangular brackets again) but that's not so specific.

Well done, class

.
Next lesson: try
i (for italic)
b (for bold)
strike (crossing out!)
sub (subscript)
sup (superscript)
center

All enclosed in triangular brackets, and turned off afterwards
e.g., i turned off with /i

If you use several commands together, make sure you 'nest' them carefully- or I'll be told off for getting u into bad habits.

Look at HTML Stuff thread for more info on HyperText Markup Language.

Preoccupied with your virlity? you? never!!!!!! And no, I was not calling you a dick. The referance was of course to your rather doubtful song about an enormouse penis.

Yes Sweetfire that was one variety of the blues, but there are many others, most modern music has its origins in the Blues.

The band were in terriffic form tonight. It all came together in the second half, Nik Naks fiddle playing was at its absolute best she seemed inspired. Deanies Guitar was driving and Andy's box playing perfect. Osson has recovered his voice and sang with the stregth and conviction that we have come to know and love. well done lads and lass. Thanks for a great night (hey and I'm sober must have hit me head). Look forward to the Hope and Anchour in South Ferriby (I think) next week and next thread too!
