Hi Ali, Oh, that would've been fantastic :D . Sounds like something already on the agenda for next time! It would be good to meet again, on a weekend day, and when Margaret and Linmag and others can come along. You are fortunate that you share your interest in LC with your husband. My husband and my...

Hi Rob,

What a great idea, toasting Leonard's birthday with a red needle 8) . I imagine they do sell tequila. I'll check this coming weekend and let you know for sure. Hmmm, you've got me wondering what I can bring along...

Hi Wendy, Oh, yes, I see the ambiguity of the suggested venue :shock: . The raliway station might be a tad chilly at the end of September, and anyway, I don't think they serve beer there. The Railway pub on the other hand, is less than a minute's walk from Bridgend railway station. Turn right out of...

What have I started?! It was just a wild idea. I didn't expect people to go dotty about it. 1,600 dots required, and about half of the members haven't given their country/town of residence so that creates a bit of a problem. Tom/Tri-Me, as this was my idea :roll: please be sure to enlist my labour i...

Pete, your mention of Marillion got me listening again for the first time in over a decade! Marillion were fantastic in the Fish years, weren't they? Alas I threw away my turntable some time ago. I am a bit of a minimalist, and tend to chuck out things I never or rarely use. For a similar reason I a...

Fljotsdale I agree. Live music of any kind is invariably a better experience than recorded music. Like all things in life, there's nothing like being there. It's a bit like the difference between watching a film of a beautiful beach and actually walking along the same beach, barefoot and with the wi...

Hi Ali :D

No agenda, just an informal gathering. I hope you still feel it worthwhile coming along though, it would be great to meet you.

All the best,

Hi Lizzy,

Maybe tsrifeykees was from the UK, because we spell 'capitalisation' with an 's' (same as surpise and realise). Another of the celebrated differences between us and you people across the pond :D.

Aubade, Philip Larkin

I don't read a great deal of poetry, but someone very close to me is suffering from a life-threatening disease, and, for me, this poem truly describes what it is we fear about death. Aubade by Philip Larkin I work all day, and get half-drunk at night. Waking at four to soundless dark, I stare. In ti...

Not a 'line' as such, but on this clip about You Have Loved Enough, I like the way he says "forget it" and then grins...! (about 2/3 the way through).

Hi Margaret. I believe I have seen a picture of your garden with some of the faces from here within :D. Week days are awkward when travelling a distance, sure. Some other time, then.

Good wishes,

I have a good American friend who I met when she was working over here in the UK and joined our mountain biking group. We spent a lot of time in each other's company as a group and it really stood out how she would confront people right out with what she had to say, in contrast to the rest of us bei...

Hi Linda :D . Yes, I couldn't help but notice some of your posts are a little, well, peculiar. But then again, there are many more that are yet more peculiar. Does being on this board make one peculiar, I wonder? Or are peculiar people more likely to join in the first place? Either way, I may well f...

I often have peculiar ideas: It would be interesting to see a map of the world with each member of this forum plotted on it as a dot :D . I like seeing things visually represented.
