I believe than Peter and Joanne (dorymates) are planning to attend.

BobBi Keppel was also interested but wasn't sure if she was invited.

Nor and Eli were not certain that they were invited either, and may have other plans by now.

But Judy and I are definately planning to come, eat, drink, and sing all night (we have a place to stay).

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Peter and Joanne said something about First Night commitments as did Fred and Julia.
This has been a strange year for a variety of reasons so no invitations went out. As always the thread announces the event. I just need a head count to set the table. It would be great to see Nor and Eli and Bobbie.
Sit down dinner. Cold antipasto followed by roast beef, roast potatoes, assorted veggies. Assorted sweets for dessert.

No need for buffet donations although I suspect Linn will inflict pickled herring on us.

We could use some wine, bread, and a lot of music.

Linn won't bring a lot of pickled herring in sour cream sauce (unless there is a loud popular aclaim), but BG & 'Mudge at least need to eat some that evening.

Gotta have herring. There's a couple other New Year's traditions we adhere to, also, but won't inflict them on anyone. (They can even be accomplished at home when we're not there.)

I like pickled herring
I like picled onions
Pickled eggs can be alright,
But they give you gas in the middle of the night...

I probably need a bed. In this weather (ain't no such thing as global warming), I could pitch a tent. Well, if it weren't for the pet by-products.

Still in balmy Toronto, but not for long.

Actually I did invite several people who are regulars at the Song Circles. Once I knew how many were definites, both yes and no, I had a handle on a seating plan. It will be the usual chaos. Seamus and Clancy will be in attendance and possibly Asher later.
Alice will pour.

Hi Melinda -

SINSULL has been having song circles at her house in South Portland, Maine, for a couple of years now, so we sort of assume everyone knows where it's at - sorry!

My understanding is that SINSULL quite sensibly doesn't want to post her address and phone number where they'll become available to every telemarketer and spam generator this side of Jupiter, so she prefers that potential new attendees PM her (shorthand for "send a Personal Message") for details - if you're interested, it's easy (and free) to join Mudcat, and then you could send her a message and get the details.

Hope that clarifies things a bit.

Melinda......Feel free to join and join in. We get hammered at times for beink "clique-ish" but we ain't. Some of us have been here 8 or 9 years or longer and this place itself feels like home so private parties like Sins happenings are often posted just as Judy said. There may not be much in your area but sometimes we enjoy the vicarious party as well!!! I'm in Ohio and I love hearing about Sins' parties.........a bit too far for this ol' dog to make it though.

Hi Melinda & welcome

There are a few here (I'm in southern NH) from the Albany area & many of us attend the Old Songs Festival which is in your neck of the woods & we do get to meet each other in person there & at other festivals too. It's been a few years for me & I do miss it.

Sinsull's a 2 bit whore but she's our 2 bit whore & pretty much loved by all. Aside from monthly sings she also hosts house concerts. Some of her performers are mudcatters (that's us) & some are not but they're all worth seeing & hearing. She also posts info on those concerts here.

You could, if you wanted to, post your self as as a newbie & meet the animals or just hang about & get to know us better as you go. You could also check out the site & find out where other members are from & who here comes from around your way.
You could also ask in a post for any folk music happenings in your area & see what up.

Barry

6PM sit down dinner followed by music. Breakfast depends on who is willing to cook but someone usually produces scrambled eggs, toast and occasionally bacon.
Mudcatters worldwide are welcome.

The main advantage of being a yooker is that we CAN get together a lot easier than you Transponders - The biggest disadvantage is that its a Bloody Long Way to Maine ! Wish I COULD be there , but we will have a good time at Chateau Trayton with Flying Cat and Mr and Mrs Admiral amomg others ! And THAT's only a reasonable walk across the town NOT a flight across the Pond !

I'm not sure why this limerick comes to mind but maybe it will help buoy this thread above the BS line:

Now there once was a widow named Brice
Who kept her dead husband on ice;
"Twas hard when I lost him,
But I'll never defrost him;
He's rather cold comfort but nice!"

"Knock knock knockin' on heaven's door..."

In Barry's defense, there was a moment at the Getaway when Mr. Finn finally sang out loud and clear - a shanty. I was hamming up the lyrics seated next to and below him. When it came to the line about the $2 whore, well, there I was and it has stuck.

Two DOLLAR not two-bit. And proud of it

Holly, are you serious? You would rather feed chickens than be with this motly crew? The weather is supposed to deteriorate New Years Day, so that doesn't ruin the New Years EVE party! Hire a chicken feeder or whatever it is that keeps you anchored! You are too young to be ruled by timidity.

I love chicken. And I know several verses about chicken pluckers:

The next came in was a chicken plucker,
And he was one mean sucker,
Yes, he was one mean sucker,
For to join in the jovial crew;
For he'd plucked chickens from town to town,
Rhode Island Reds to Leghorn Brown,
And he'd plucked them chickens up and down –
When Jones's Ale was new, me boys,
When Jones's Ale was new!

Cheerily,

I have never understood how two bits could be a quarter -- two bits of what I ask myself? This country can be very complicated!

Mary - did you let the snowman in?

Everyone make a mental note not to sit too near to Mr. Finn when he is singing shanties or if so, vet the choice of song very very carefully ...............'next to and below him??' - the mind boggles.

Happy New Year everyone from TRUBRIT who is still officially on holiday until January 2 (British visitors still here til the first) but missing the mudcat so stole a minute to check in ...... think of what I might have missed if I hadn't done so!!!!!!!

TRU-B, MMario is only right about the time difference if we're being serious. Since it would be rude to call Micca at 5 AM, and Mary is not rude, so it's not 5 AM. I'm actually quite good at time zones. I once tried to make a work-related phone call to Hawaii from Korea on a Monday. They're an hour behind... not really. Hawaii is actually 25 hours behind S. Korea, and no one's there to answer the phone on Sunday. And then there's the complicated task of asking an Air Force pilot what time it is. Preliminary answer: "Do you want Eastern Standard, local or Zulu (GMT)?"

...but I digress.

Maybe you could mess with your clocks, convince your guests it's later than they think, and when they go to bed, sneak over to Mary's?

Well, here in Oz, we are actually 16 hours ahead of Mudcat time, which means that midnight here will be 8am Mudcat on THE DAY BEFORE - the 31st. I'd ring somebody at 8am on the 31st if I knew any phone numbers - probably just as well I don't ;-)

On the other hand if anyone from the US were to ring me at midnight their time, I would have moved on to 4pm the next day, and there's an outside chance I might be up by then - well I do like to party!

We're 11 hours ahead of the UK, so our midnight will be their 1pm on the 31st, and their midnight will be our 11am on the 1st. Good chance I'll still be in bed then.

Actually we're going out to a friends' place and we're going to get a tram in to somewhere near the city where we can see the fireworks. I was looking at a preview last night where they were trying out some of the lighting they always do on the Harbour Bridge. It's affectionately known as "the coathanger", and I saw a lit-up coathanger on the side of it. They've forecast rain but we won't let a little bit of that slow us down.

Two Bits: (from answers.com)
United States

"... a holdover from colonial America, when Spanish dollars ... were deemed equivalent in value to a U.S. dollar. To provide smaller denominations, they were cut into eighths, or "bits". Thus, twenty-five cents was dubbed "two bits," as it was a quarter of a Spanish dollar. Correspondingly, the terms "four bits" and "six bits" referred to fifty and seventy-five cents, respectively.

Because there was no one-bit coin, a dime (10 ¢) was sometimes called a short bit and 15c a long bit. For example, "Six-Bits Blues" by Langston Hughes included the following couplet: Gimme six bits' worth o'ticket/On a train that runs somewhere…."

By the way, Kendall, it's cold and slippery and snowing steadily here. The chickens refuse to have anything to do with their chickensitter, Mrs. W. Coyote, or her good friends young Ms Weasel and Mr. Jeremy Fisher. And they thought they'd enjoy the ride to S. Portland, but when I read them the post about chicken recipes, that was the end of that! So we'll be staying here for New Year's.

However, if we drive down during August, fellow mudcatters in attendance might return to their cars the next morning to find 'em filled with zucchinis and our extra roosters. Be afraid. Be very afraid...ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!

Yours truly,

meek maeve

Pieces o' eight from the Spanish dollars was my best guess above. But I didn't know anyone referred to the "pieces" as "bits."

Humph. These chickens are bantams (half size chickens) and mostly free-range; hardly worth the effort to pluck, there would be so little meat. Having said that, anyone who takes the extra 4 really handsome roosters is the new owner and free to make that decision. I call dibs on the best feathers!

The alpha rooster Airlie and the heir apparent Calico will remain here, along with Lil' Bit the mille fleur dowager queen, her two daughters Spice and Hawk, and three young granddaughters, who provide eggs and garden insect control.

By the bye: Truly free-range chickens can be quite tough due to superior muscle development. We haven't tried any of ours for meat. Zucchini might find its way into Kendall's and Jacqui's house without warning. :)

We've just got back from the melee, all in one piece.

Had a great time, good food and company.

We got phone calls from Dani and KT, mostly to talk to Kendall I think, and from Sussex Carole and Crane Driver, at midnight UK time. Mary did phone Micca at midnight EST and we had spoken to him earlier in the evening.

Off to bed now - got to get up go give a hand with breakfast and retrieve Seamus who was left to the tender ministrations of Mary for the night

PS: for the record, I called to deliver SussexCarole's message as I saw it pop up here. Happy accident that Kendall was already there and willing to speak a bit. I think Mary told him someone who loved him was on the phone, and, ever the gentleman, he wanted to know which one, from where! It's enough to make a girl jealous, Kendall. But if Jacqui can handle it, I guess I can, too ; )

Kendall may have been a bit overserved and has a touch of a hangover this morning.

We got up late, missed out on breakfats chez SINSULL so I've just made him scrambled egg and toast. We're not sure just how bad the roads are right now so we'll test them out and see if it's safe to drive across to Mary's this morning. Otherwise, we'll just have to loaf around the house for the rest of the morning.

We're back safely home, an hour up the road to Richmond, Maine. We did a rather hasty departure after midnight to avoid the mess that iced up the roads later New year's morning. But it was a great party!

The roast beef dinner was superb (well, the roast was less rare than I like but very tasty), the wine/beer/harder stuff were all available in abundance, although this year I elected to finish the last two hours off with the more sedate diet gingerale.

And there was a wide variety of songs sung, including traditional holiday songs and some parodies of the same. Mary certainly can channel the late 19th century heart throb songs, including the unfortunately unforgettable "Poor Kitty Popcorn." I got a chance to revive "Pity the Downtrodden Landlord" which apparently people were unfamiliar with; it's tune is based on a music hall song that Linn had been leading, "She's More to Be Pitied Than Censored." BobBi regaled us with "The Fatal Glass of Beer." I tried out "The Tasmin Buster," another of Bob Watson's fine songs that I've recently fallen in love with; Jeri followed it with Watson's better known "Mollymauk." I also did my favorite Si Kahn song, appropriately titled "New Year's" which is dedicated to long-term organizers. JudyB did a fine rendition of Doug McCarthy's "Merlin." For some reason there were a number of cat songs, with an appropriate chorus of meows. Jacqui led a couple of Utah Phillips' songs, with Kendall doing his usual fine guitar accompaniment. Tami led "The Lewiston Factory Girl" which inspired several more texile industry songs. Edmund led a fine rendition of "Sam Hall the Chimney Sweep" and what was the title of his old French ballad? Tom led an Ewan MacColl favorite "The Thirty-Foot Trailor" and his more obscure eviction protest song "Hey, Ho, Cook & Roe." And in honor of Micca we did the "Gladiator" chorus. Charmion led several jigs and reels on her long-necked madolin (?). This is a mere sampling of what folks were singing over the four hours I was in residence. Lord knows how long they continued after our all too hasty departure (the small blue-green insulated chest is mine).

I'm glad I thought to bring fresh salsa, as an optional replacement for the gray and hairy salsa that Sinsull had been growing in her refrigerator since the last house party.

It was a lovely party, and it was fun to have folks from all over the world periodically phoning in.

Thank you, Mary, for hosting this one again.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble and JudyB

I tried to stop everyone including Charlie from opening the Salsa jars but they insisted and I ended up with about 12 open jars. The one you unearthed was in the back and moved to the front when an abundance of wine necessitated rearranging the frig.
Fortunately no opened the kimchi with the bulkging lid, I have to remember to toss that before it explodes.

I do not keep many leftovers or out of date food. All fuzzy entrees were delivered by generous guests.

The last of the revellers left about ten minutes ago. I am taking a deep breath before tackling the dishes. This place is a mess!

The music was wonderful. Thank you all. Charlie and Judy did bolt at midnight. I half expected to see a pumpkin pulled by mice out front.

The weather has been miserable today but the sleet finally changed over to rain.

Drive carefully evereyone. And Happy New Year.

Sorry I didn't get a chance to speak with Dani, Carole, and whoever else called.

Belated thank you to Char;ie and Judy. I love my mermaid. I don't know if you noticed but she is happily ensconced in a pot on a shelf in the kitchen.

I wish, I wish. KT and Ebbie, Dani and Tinker, Susan A-R and Janie, Carole and Andrew and Linda Goodman and Big Mick and Micca and Leadfingers and Morticia and and and. Then again I am always thrilled to have Kendall and Tom singing and playing in my living room. You too Jeri and all others. I suspect that when I am long gone the new owners on Bonny Bank will be awakened by strange music and some crazy woman going on about Peppersass.

Susan - thank you for the wine but I would have preferred your company especially since I cleaned out the "closet" so that you could sign the wall.

I found some more desserts I forgot to serve and lots of wine mostly opened.

But on the bright side, I have started 2007 with a job and Salsa free.

Sinsull, how do you manage to HAVE 236 glasses?!?

Charley, when I found it it just seemed to be the sort of prop you could work into something. And I'd run out of pirate stuff.

Actually, it was a fairly laid back evening (probably because we were all so comfortably full of a lovely meal!) and we even got to sleep at a more or less reasonable hour (and we really appreciated not having to cope with late night New Year's traffic and the expected freezing rain) and woke up in pleasant company after enough sleep to function through the day.

Not a bad way to start the year!

And the singing was excellent, as usual. (Although my voice wasn't 100% after last week's cold -- which I gave to Tom.) Really nice to have Charmion and Edmund be able to join the feast and festivities again!

Gotta go to work. Sigh.

Later,
Linn

The instrument Charmion is playing is an octave mandolin.

The French song I sang was "Les enfants de Pontoise", one of the grimmest hanging ballads I've ever heard. I also sang The Leatherwing Bat and River Driving. (I must buy Jeff Warner a beer the next time I'm in the Press Room for including that last one on his CD).

I knew that Mary. I just couldn't think of a different song. Mabe one, but your chocolate balls weren't salty. Exceptionally good, though.

Tami -- Fanny has a different meaning across the pond. Ask Jacqui and make sure that's the part of your anatomy you were referring to -- Tom

Mario, Tami came to us delightfully corrupted on her own. There may be a case for encouragement and blossoming into the current form, but I don't think we can blame Jacqui or Mary for planting the seed.

I'm a park ranger, we're all corrupted, otherwise the phrase would be going ranger instead of going postal. As for the five letter f-word, I usually use ass, guess I should've kept using it.

It is too bad that in our efforts to achieve egalitarianism, that the US doesn't have knighthoods and other honors, that could be bestowed on the 4th of July.

Mary, bitch or no bitch, is a prime candidate for something like the MAR or OAR, Member or Order of the American Republic, for all she does to promote folk singing and international relations.

Perhaps we can prevail upon the Governor of the State of Maine to set Mary's birthday aside as the SINSUL International Relations Day, and present her a LARGE framed certificate to this effect.

If you need a foreigner or two to countersign the citation and thus convince the chain of command, just call on us. When we visit Mary, we get a real bed, a magnificent breakfast, and all the feline company we can stand!
