Suzanne :-D :-D Just listening to George Formby - Madam Moskovitch, the Moscow witch, the Russian gypsy queen.

If you give a bob, then she - will unfold a mystery.
If you give her half a crown, then she'll let the curtains down
And you'll see much more
Than you did before
Of the Russian gypsy queen;-)

Paula and yourself never had my education in the arts regrettably :-D

Suzanne Report 4 Jan 2013 23:09

loved that song ANN

it was a good old northern soul song ,that i discovered a few yrs later,approx 1978 at the age of 15 :-D


JustJohn Report 4 Jan 2013 23:31

Who sang "Having my insides poked around in hospital". Was it Sex Pistols? Or Spandau Ballet? :-S :-S

Education was public school in Wolverhampton (honest!), Tech College in Walsall and UCNW Bangor. Stopped learning when I was 22. :-( :-(

Hey!!! ErrolSheep. Good to see you, bro. Seems ages since you threaded. :-D :-D


JustJohn Report 4 Jan 2013 23:50

Have just wickied 1978 cos I could think of nothing that happened.

These are the only two newsworthy events I found:

Mavis Hutchinson, 53, becomes the first woman to run across the U.S.; her trek took 69 days.
• Garfield, which eventually becomes the world's most widely syndicated comic strip, makes its debut.
