Loving this picture G. I definitely have a weakness for the black and white silhouettes.

Really like the idea of a 'never ending gallery' of your work.

Wishing you all good things

Re: Fuck the Moon

I remember reading this great work of literature many years ago and really appreciated the in depth explanatory version. Move over Carol Ann Duffy this author will no doubt be in the running for the next poets laureate. This is my favourite line. It says it all. And its selective romance (its everyt...

Re: allow me to litter this forum one last time

Hi Sideways and Cate.

I wouldn't worry too much about the afore mentioned gentlemen. I believe they are just off auditioning to become the Statler and Waldorf of the forum (though I suspect they've held that position for many years)... ;-)

Re: Those Were The Days - Liam Clancy

Nice song Diane. Another Irish legend I like is the wonderful Luke Kelly. Scorn Not His Simplicity is a beautiful song also written by Phil Coulter which Kelly does with great emotion. https://youtu.be/jcNuxNLN3yM I'm sure you'll enjoy Finbar Furey. Union Chapel is a great venue. I was there a few w...

Re: Those Were The Days - Liam Clancy

Love this song Tony...never heard this Liam Clancy version.

Always thought Liam did Eric Bogle's, 'And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda' with great feeling.

Also love 'Fiddlers Green'

Re: mess :-(

The water looks lovely. I always find sitting by the river very relaxing. You really captured the essence of him in the eyes Geoffrey... Whether imagination or not; and although he may only sit with you for a brief moment, it's obvious you still hold his spirit in your heart, which means he will alw...

Re: Madonna Performs 'Haleluya' At Met Gala 2018

'Chacun à son goût' or 'À chacun son goût', depending on one's use of language, taste or sense of pedantry. Definitely not to my taste Tony. Or should I say, Certainement pas à mon gout ... Not really a Madonna fan. Sorry to hear that you are in need of a carer; though I’m not surprised after heari...

Ouch!

That's a great song but I had no idea which album it was from. Nice one! For those who don't know the song, though I'm sure most will. https://youtu.be/UfZWp-hGCdA Not keen on lemons in drinks but I do like lemon tea and I have a freshly squeezed lemon every morning; it makes your mouth pucker a bit...
