Re: thursday/raglan road

Thanks Ken. I knew a little of the history of "Raglan Road" as its one of my favourite songs. However, it was really only when the Luke Kelly version was also featured in a poignant scene in one of my favourite films "In Bruges" that I tried to find out more about the song and its roots. I've really...

I can't re...

The Tipsy Wife was watching Coronation Street tonight. The ITV soap opera character Peter Barlow was having second thoughts about his wedding tomorrow and having a heart to heart with his new love interest...(why am I even admitting to knowing this?).

Re: The Sydney concert Nov 17 re-scheduled to Dec 2

The Tipsy Wife and I were lucky enough to attend a production of Tosca at this spectacular venue a few years ago. Not surprisingly, fantastic acoustics, in case anyone was in any doubt. We always said that the Opera House would be the perfect venue for Leonard to perform at. Really envious of all of...

Re: Rolling Stones in Hyde Park July 13th 2013

We went down Oxford Street and found a pub for a quick refreshment or two after the event. Nearly everyone there had been to the concert. Its good now that in London they no longer throw you out of the pub at 11 o'clock. Luckily we didn't have to rush for the tube as we were staying in a hotel withi...

Re: Rolling Stones in Hyde Park July 13th 2013

Just back from one of those great nights you will remember forever. Mick and the rest of the lads gave one great performance, almost one that you might take as extra special as it might be the last time......... Couldn't agree more. A stunning concert and a great night. 65000 fans got something unf...
