Not being a practical sort, I didn't previously know that there was such a thing as a 'roof brush' but I guess you would likely need one if you had Le bœuf sur le toit!

Some days there's a dearth, some days a deluge. Could have been Beach, Meyerbeer, J.C. Bach or Fricker: a holiday snap of Blackpool circa 1976 may have sufficed - or, of course, some supernatural nun-fun (all in the best possible taste, of course)...



...nope, wouldn't scare the skin off cilgwyn's rice-pudding.

I remember hearing somewhere that the very pious Walford Davies once said to Vaughan Williams, "I do all my best composition on my knees", to which Ralph replied, "Really? I do all mine on my arse." I do so hope that's true. Grin

Henry Walford Davies indeed and a lovely anecdote. Much still to be recorded, including a better performance of Everyman...
