Nice one Phil. The ball's in Mr H's court for the next year or so, but I'll keep hold of that idea! Byron already has a set of bagpipes, I recall him mentioning...

hello everybody

i was in yorkshire yesterday, well leeds anyway which i know phil doesn't consider 'proper' yorkshire...sorry i missed phil's court case but i didn't see much of the place this trip anyway as everywhere was all covered in a foggy mist...no fog in the auditorium of west yorkshire playhouse so journey not wasted.....

...remember a few posts back when i mentioned the snowdon episode of the tv series 'great british railway journeys' well i have copies of this now on dvd for anybody who wants to relive the pain, humilation and misery of our day up snowdon...
...it's 30 minutes long and has michael portillo taking the train to the top of snowdon.....witnessing the revival of anglesey's sea salt industry and discovering how the railways transformed the trade to ireland through tiny port of holyhead
...just let me know if you want a copy and as a christmas bonus i will throw in a recording of your choice of any of the recent leonard shows...although if you haven't already got a copy of jura's brilliant recording of the 2010 st. margarethen show ten i would wholeheartly recommend that show for listening pleasure.......

......btw i've still got my my snowdon toenail...

Being an LC fan, I could never get enough misery, so thanks for your kind offer of the dvd. I will email you my address.

How lovely to see your souvenir relic toenail from Snowdon again:-( Tinds, where are you? Come here and sort Ken out will you.

Hi Ken
I ventured into enemy territory today due to an appointment at the Walton Centre and once again was in awe of the treatment I was given . What the city of Liverpool lacks in football ability it more than makes up in medical prowess . I have once again had the shunt fine tuned so now I should be good for another six months . While my lovely Jean was dodging the bullets and driving over the pennines I had to keep myself busy so I took the liberty of serenading you with the Barmouth version of "Memories are made of this " .
Silly I know but i had nowt else to do

Memories are made of this

Take one toenail such as this
(Sweet dreams the memories you gave to me)
Add the stolen nights of bliss
(Sweet dreams the memories you gave to me)
One curl, Oh boy
Some grief no joy
Memories are made of this

(Sweet sweet the memories you gave to me)
(How sweet the memories you gave to me)

Don’t forget the mountain team
Brought together with a dream
Memories are made of this

(Sweet sweet the memories you gave to me)
(How sweet the memories you gave to me)

Your quips and mine
Two sips of wine
Memories are made of this

(Sweet sweet the memories you gave to me)
(How sweet the memories you gave to me)

Also add the jokes we tell
And times we almost fell
Three skids but we never wavered

(Sweet dreams the memories you gave to me)
(How sweet the memories you gave to me)

We ventured high above
In homage to the dove
To praise the view that we savoured

(sweet dreams the memories you gave to me)
(How sweet the memories you gave to me )

One silly plan in life
To have no stress or strife
Memories are made of this

(Sweet sweet the memories you gave to me)

phil.....great news to hear that the treatment is going well....sounds like they know what they are doing at the walton.....next time please give us a ring when you are coming over if only for a nice cup of tea and a catch up..promise?

thanks for the new lyrics...wonderful stuff as usual...you always give the impression that you can knock these things out without almost any effort at all...only drawback is that i've had that damn tune going around in my head ever since i first posted and now after reading your new lyrics i'm never going to get rid of the tune...

btw here's my new best friend tony toenail who would also like to give you a big thank you...i've told him that you and jean were partly responsible for him being born.....

I must admit to being there at the conception when your foot flirted precariously with the mountain but as to the responsibility for him being born well that has your footprint written all over it and what you fail to mention is that poor old Tony was born premature and by emergency section which I can only assume you performed . I hope you realise that Tony will be scarred for life and find it very hard to socialise with other toenails . Those scars will take a long time to heel and he will drift through life without a sole . Seperating a toenail with its mother toe at such an early age can cause the nail to never grow up properly . I just hope that for your sake the boot is never on the other foot !
But you are a good man Ken and I am reminded of the famous quotation that says : "Never critisize a man without a toenail until you have walked a mile in his shoes . That way if he doesn't like what you say it won't matter because you will have his shoes and he will be a mile away "
Phil
BTW Let Jean and myself know if you want us to be godparents for little Tony's christening and I will make a footnote in the diary

I'm going to make a special home-made brew, in honour of the birth of little Tony. I'll gladly give it an appropriate name if anyone wants to suggest one. I'll start the ball rolling with 'Tone Ale.'

THIS THREAD IS INTERRUPTED TO GIVE YOU AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE

....bernadine has written up on facebook to say that she has been unable to log into the forum for quite a while...she is having problems with the capcha and is thinking that registering under another name may be the answer......

...can anybody help?

It's that hacker thingy.
One thing for her to try before becoming a #2 to her original name is to carefully watch for whether after she does the captcha, her name needs to be typed in again and/or her password [the one she KNOWS is hers]. I was having some kind of issue with that whole thing and found that if I just retyped in my name/password/both AFTER I did the captcha that it went through successfully. At least have her try that first. Problem is that periodically, I still have to do it all again. So, becoming herself #2 might be the easier way to go.

I've been trying to stay out of this thread and just enjoy the obvious bonding that took place that weekend on the mountainside. Despite numerous temptations, I've done pretty well with it til today.

However, second came Bernadine's SOS re: captchas [and I hope my suggestion helps] and I responded to that first.

Originally, however, I intended to post what's below. It came through some link today at my work email, so I sent it on home, so I could open it.
Since, liverpoolken had the foresight to hold on to the evidence, of which he recently reminded everyone here, this tidbit seems to have arrived timely'ly, so in case you care to pursue it, you'll know what to Google, so as to find out where to submit your specimen, Ken... not that it's an olive branch, but as I recall, you smoke, and I felt it was the least I could do to at least pass it on... ;)

Toe Nail Clippings Can Predict If You Will Get Lung Cancer before It Strikes

Toenail clippings could allow scientists to predict the risk of lung cancer many years before it develops, research has shown.
Measuring nicotine levels in clippings found men with the highest readings were more than three times more likely to get cancer than those with the lowest. Because toenails grow so slowly – at 1cm a year – they provide vital information on long-term exposure to cigarette smoke.

HI everyone

At last at last the forum recognises me again :) . I found the catcha thing very difficult to read and never seemed to get it right, but today it worked. Thanks Lizzie for your kind suggestions also. Does Ken smoke??? I never saw him do so

Thanks Ken for reporting my disappearance also.

Just want to say , that I am still reading up on everything and looking forward to when we all meet again, whether it is in Bavaria or the Lake District or wherever

I have to re read the thread again in order to comment on what has been happening.

Love to each and everyone of you

Bernadine xxxx

I see I've some catching up to do in this thread!

You are a real treasure Ken, for sending me a package of goodies. As I speak I am listening to "I didn't come to Romersteinbruch St. Margarethen in Burgenland to fool ya" (don't try saying that with your mouth full). The quality is excellent. Great to hear the new songs, too.

I wonder what will be up here next. Phil's false teeth or Byron's gallstones?

Hi Tinds! Great to see you:-) Sorry, I am probably behind here as I haven't been reading for a couple of days, but was commenting on Ken's toe nail. Nevermind anyhow - the nonsense of this thread is part of the fun. Take care Bernadine. See you before the year is out one way or another, with a bit of luck!
