Re: Buxton, England 1st Sept.

Now,now Joe I know there is a lot of "fake news" around at the moment but I need to put the record straight . No doubt you have read Kens version of events on that fateful day in Barmouth when you refer to Jean and I being "thrown out " . I can assure you that was not the case after a "friendly" cha...

Re: LC Walking Weekend (2009, 2011, 2013, 2015)

As promised here is the poem I recited on the last day of our walking weekend . As I said then I hope the fact that I have used one of Leonard's song to express my feelings hasn't upset anyone but I looked on it as a compliment to him !
