Oh, I Want to Be a Bee is quite possibly the funniest thing I've seen since my first encounter with Eddie Izzard at the Gilded Balloon in nineteenninetysomething...completely did me and Sandra in. And is there a better song title than 'Look!, Cecil, There Goes the Titanic!'  I don't think the Good Fairy is scary at all...the witchy lady voice in Cloudstreets 'King Willie' was though...

(We spent last night practising for the Kazoo Orchestra of Great Britain, much to Nick's annoyance. Love Will Tear Us Apart in the key of H is coming along brilliantly - watch out Cropredy 2006).

...yes, we should have proper kazoos by then, we will wear them suspended from our tiaras by golden chains for easy access at all times (poor Nick, not only does he not fit on buses, but he's tortured by small women with buzzing musical instruments...hee hee  Grin)

These are all excellent photos everyone, marvellous! Cheesy

He does seem to have more than the average leg allocation though. (Length not number  Grin )
Actually - number, too! Here's why:
About 1 in 2000 people have only one leg. (The number of people with more than two legs is so small that it can safely be neglected in this statistic. I have left out the completely legless, too for two reasons: One, I don't have the numbers and two, the number of legless people - especially at Folk festivals - varies considerably from moment to moment...)
This means that 2000 people have 3999 legs between them.
Ergo, the average number of legs is 1,9995.
Strangely enough, 1999 of 2000 people have therefore a higher-than-average number of legs and Nick is one of them! (I counted.)

On another tack, I forgot to mention that Boatgirl was at Wallingford as well. Ask her about the tent pegs Grin


Now now Sandy...what goes on tour stays on tour!  Wink

Suffice to say, it is customary for Boatboy and I to leave something at home every time we camp. This time it was the pegs. Last time it was the poles, so this was a minor inconvenience. We simply used the only pointy things we could find as pegs. So if anyone happened to walk past a pod-shaped tent with bamboo canes sticking out of the ground at odd angles, it was not an art installation, it was our accomodation.
If you're asking yourself why we happen to have bamboo canes in our car...well, lets just say they make better pegs than poles...

What a fab festival! Beautiful weather, 50 ales to work through, a diverse range of stalls, and free music--what more do you need? Circulus and Mary Jane were my faves, but I also enjoyed the Bedlam Morris team--so scary they made children cry.

Boatgirl & Boy! Of course! I knew I'd forgotten some board members. Good to see you. Sorry for hijacking your guitar...

"drinking" ... "too early" ... no, does not compute, sorry! Grin

But actually, this is my normal state of mind, I was at work when typing it... ask my colleagues!

Can't remember the exact name, but I am sure it was something to do with Granchester.

I think it is Gog Magog Molly from Cambridgeshire.

They were camping just down from us.

A friend has just e-mailed me after going to Wallingford and said, although stifling hot, he enjoyed it lots, especially Mawkin who he says resembles a 'youthful reincarnation of the Albion Dance Band.' He can't stop playing the demo cd apparently  Wink
