You KNOW what you are like.

Incidentally did you know that the cadence of that 'raspberry' is the same in every language?

I use this site

If you have any others I would be delighted to see them because I sometimes cannot find exactly what I want.

Forget 'The Dream' and do

'The Phantom Raspberry Blower Of Old London Town' as written for the Two Ronnies by the late great and sorely missed Sir Spike Milligoooon !!

We went to find his grave last year.

It was a trip worthy of the Goons as it was pouring with rain and we lost shoes in the mud, fell over and all sorts.

It was almost as if someone didn't want it found, but we persevered.

Sir Spike was a great man on and off the stage.

He had a great sense of compassion as I discovered in correspondence with him some years ago.

For those who don't know.

"Duirt me leat go raibh me breoite", or "I told you I was ill", and the English words "Love, light, peace".

We hadn't seen this before we went so didn't even know what we were looking for.

Incidentally I used to live about half-a-mile from Spike that was why we went to look for his grave.
