My neighbour, a chap from the Pas de Calais, has today presented me with a copy of a 1967 recording of I'm Sorry, I'll Read That Again.

On the sleeve notes Tim Brooke Tayor is described as being " gurglingly fruity", while Graeme Garden is "brushed and bourgeois".

Offers? :biggrin:

I'm half way through installing Mac OSX Lion on my laptop.

It's always squeaky bum time upgrading any computer's operating system. That said, it's not a Microsoft OS so it should work just fine...

The upgrade went fine and finished ages ago. First impression was to swear at the reversed mouse wheel scroll direction. An idiot move by Apple that I had to mess around with the settings to fix.

First day back at work after spending a couple of weeks cycling in the Pyrenees and walking a few stages of the Camino de Santiago. Best holiday ever. :(

Come over this end of the hills next time mate. You'd be made most welcome and we have some proper spiky mountains. :smile:

I've got a chum who will rent you a donkey to do the C de S in an authentic style. :unsure:

I'm getting two tons of moonstone gravel delivered by Mone Brothers today. I fear it;s too much.

Certainly no use to me.

I only drink proper leaf tea at home, none of that teabag garbage.

None of that sliced bread rubbish either.

Nor that there semi-skilled milk.

And especially no electric beer.

Let's face it, nobody tried to tunnel into Colditz.

Or he prefers the finer things as all true Yorkshiremen do.

I'm not actually a Yorkshireman, only an adoptive one.

But I can tell a good cup of tea, and there's no such brand as 'Lancashire Tea' is there.

In fact the only widespread things that the name of that particular county is routinely identified with are cheese and the Lancashire Boiler.

:wink::biggrin:
