Sorry to be a pedant but the irony of a spelling mistake on a thread discussing spelling mistakes tickled me.

I'm very sad!

It wasn't a spelling mistake, it was a typographical error.

Oh, dear! - and I pride myself on NEVER making a spelling mistake. I must have been so tired that I was seeing double. Mea maxima culpa. SO embarrassing!

(By the way, I have just checked the spelling of Tsh! Tsh! in the Shorter Oxford Dictionary)
And what did it say? I must admit I would have writen tsk tsk.
Yes - on the whole, the Shorter Oxford Dictionary seemed to indicate that the insertion of a "u" between the "t" and the "s" was to be preferred as being the more correct form. But what is the absence of the odd "u" (twice repeated in as many words) between friends?

was that why we had so many jabs? and tablets? Anyhow - this is supposed to be about music, and unless we are all going with colds and can sneeze and march in harmoney can we get back to the subject in mind????

thinking about it why bother - we never managed to keep to a thread so why break the habit of a lifetime?

I see also that the Peele Festival of Arts is to be held in the theatre that evening and as there is a rumour that this may have the merest hint of Kernow this year, that might be an excuse for this OB at least to be present on that day.
Just thought this thread needed reviving.

Does anyone think that an 'unofficial' get-together should happen on June 18th.?
