  3. The DC List must be on the old Blog somewhere - if anyone has the time to find it, copy it and post it on fbook.
    I would but I'm busy scanning worldobituaries.com and besides its Corpus Cristi here today, so a day aff.

  11. I haven't listened since I checked the playlists for 'best albums' and found they were all hit singles. Surely-to-goodness Bryan must get fed-up playing this nonsense and kidding on that if he adds in Harry Lauder or Vera Lynn he's dead eclectic.

    Anyone interested in the Olympic torch?

    2. I get really excited at the thought of the olympic torch relay. All those different people running with the flame. Think they should cover the whole relay live. It would be riveting tv.

      I hear some people are selling their torches. I wouldn't mind a couple.

      Here Dale! Your our specialist in all things Olympic. You got the uniform and the packed lunches - any chance you could get me two torches? I'll see you alright like.

      I'm thinking that if I already have said torches then I'm sure my son and I will get asked to carry them here in 2016.

      Delete
    4. prometheus - yes it think it could be riveting TV, if they had to carry the torch clenched between their buttocks.

      (A bit like that popular game in rugby clubhouses where participants had to carry a 50p piece in said fashion before dropping it into a pint glass).

      I am really curious as to how him and Henri manage to get on that Blog.

      I wonder how else we might be able to use their skills......

    I don't understand it myself but it seems to work like this. I have two email addresses, both registered with GIO, I think.

    If I try and access the blog from either of these at the 'host' computer, I can't access the blog.

    However, if I access my home computer from my workplace and then go to the blog from there, it let's me post - I've just done it again. I've no idea why that is... so, if the blog doesn't recognise multiple personality disorder my guess is you should be able to get back on, though I guess you need two quite distinct email addresses.

    Should be a skoosh for Mr Git?

    regardez - youse

      So, if I used a monitor at the local library or an internet café I could leave comments?

    2. Not sure - but probably - I signed in straight from my computer at work having gone the circuitous route the first time and it let me in, though I didn't bother to post.

      Maybe this is all mince and it's a tiem of day thing - I can't explain it - but it's worth a go.

      Gaie,

      Putting your son in the blue bin merely reinforces gender stereotypes. I bet you made him climb trees and play with toy guns. Next thing you know he'll want to marry a woman.

    4. A well-known bank put him in the blue bin - he's thankfully recycled himself now and is off down south for 6 months where a publishing company doesn't know what's about to hit them. If you read his blog on his alleged Uncle Robin you'll see what I mean.

  23. @ A_f_R........the Games is nearly there....uniform is a delight....specially the natty wee 'swatch'.

    missed last nights listen.....as i was droppin' aff weans at rockness......that sort of programme is too frantic for someone of my years anyway.

    another horrific accident on the A9 sometimes puts another perspective on life.

    came back down the A82 and then went to look for aleister crowley's house..........totally fascinating....found it too.

      Dunno. It was certainly in the charts.

      (Much alcohol was consumed in the seventies. I got married in 1980. The alcohol consumption resumed when I came to my senses in 1982).

    3. it was in the charts forever, but I'm sure I had a copy in 1974, the year my own decision-making skills were put to the test and found to be non-existent.

  26. I would probably go for

    Harvest For The World - Isley Brothers

    But a great year, pipping 1972.... just.
