    To be read in that wonderful Peter Cook narration voice, of course...
    I do admire your appreciation of the arts mate. You have that ability to connect to whatever and what else. Truely amazing. I am in awe.


    • Oh, man- that's a very nice thing to say. I'm friggin' *blushing*.

      As an undereducated American, I've had to work hard to make up for my structural/educational shortcomings. (;-) And for younger folks who may not have had the pleasure, and therefore may not know what the hell we're talking about, here's my absolute favorite-ever Peter Cook bit: from "The Secret Policeman's Ball", 1979, along with Rowan Atkinson, several Pythons, and a bunch of other comedy glitterati...

        Just something to bear in mind skod, In Scotland (and in Canada), it is spelt Whisky, and in Ireland (and the US), it is spelt whiskey. The result of an argument 200ish years ago I think.
        The oldest whiskey distillery is Bushmills in Ireland, legally registered in1605, though illegally, probably another 100-or-so years before that.

        Your lady probably knows all this but thought I would point it out.

        Keep a grip when the ship rolls mate, lay back and think of whisky. With a bit of luck they will offer you some Haggis for breakfast.

        That will take the pain away lol.
        I learned in Ireland that Bushmills is Protestant whiskey and Jameson is Catholic whiskey. My grandson is named Jameson.
        Equipment: TD-30KV, DW9000 hardware, ROC-N-SOC Throne, Behringer ULTRATONE K3000FX Amp, JBL EON 615 Powered Speaker, Yamaha MG06X. 1965 Ludwig Super Classic. Black diamond pearl. Zildjian K Custom Dark cymbals, DW 7000 hardware, DW 9000 kick pedal.

          I did not know that Jim. Ya live and learn.

          I usually drink Jameson's if I'm in an Irish frame of mind, so me being just a little bit Irish, I must also be a little bit catholic too lol.

          Its a family thing, all the males in my family have the middle name James.
