Hi Rob, You wrote (in part): > "Let's hope that we can all work towards the aim of understanding and a common love for all that is good. Well said and I agree with you 100%! Love indeed! To me, true Love is what is seriously lacking in this most wicked World. If Love abounded, there would be no conflicts, or wars and Life itself would be completely harmonious, indeed beyond anyone's

Welcome back Milo, now that your "term of suspension" has now virtually expired, (albeit a few more hours yet to go.) You've been missed! 'Happy New Year' to you (and of course all other posters too) Regards, John

Hi all, Amongst many other interests, I freely admit to being a bit of a 'Brass Band' "nut". If you have the time, then please listen to the following, played by the 'Brass Band of Battle Creek': 'The Force of Destiny'. Absolutely Brilliant! Further if you will, then listen to one of the finest cornetists of all time (IMHO), one James Shepherd with his rendition of 'Pandora':

Hi Janet, > "Sounds like you loved her very much. She must have been a wonderful Nan to have." Absolutely! May I also say Janet that I truly did love her very much (and still do), because our Nan was our Mother's mother (our Mother passed-away when my brother and I were very young, I was just 9 and my brother just 7) During later years, my brother gave up a really good Job in o

Hi Janet, Unfortunately, I don't have too much time these days to continue such involved debates on evolution etc., (as on other threads) as I would like to pursue, but I do scan the site to see what is perhaps more relevant before I retire, hence this post.

Hi Deep and all, Any chance that the Afghans, Iraqi's and even the Taleban might one day soon (I hope) take up the International game of Cricket? Should they all do so, then I am sure that all their inhibitions, disagreements etc would be instantly resolved. Afterall, Cricket is a Gentleman's game. Gentlemen of the World, Unite! John

I remember an old 'Dad's Army' episode where Captain Mainwaring remarked along the lines that if the Germans had played Cricket, there would not have been a war. Might be some truth in that.

Hi Ray, Thanks for the link which I listened through, plus a few more. Actually, though the compositions in the Link do have an obvious comical aspect, I was not too impressed. You see, the players themselves appear to be quite capable musicians in their own right, whereas the Portsmouth Sinfonia players and the late Florence Jenkins were not that "capable" at all (if you get my drif

Hi Briffits, "Gavin Bryars was one of the instigators I know." Really! That is interesting. I do believe that a CD might soon be issued on the PS's past performances. I hope so, because they were just brilliant! Seems to me that many people just do not appreciate good music these days. John

Hi all, Almost two years ago, I introduced a most fantastic Orchestra for your listening pleasure, namely the esteemed 'Portsmouth Sinfonia': Now, if you have a couple of minutes to spare, may I introduce to you all yet another brilliant musical performance from one 'Florence Foster Jenkins' who is a 'Soprano' (she hits the high notes etc) Absolutely enchanting. Listen and enjoy, John

Hi Susan, > "What a lovely post, rob. It would certainly win the month's Language Award if we had one here. I agree with that. In fact I would say that Rob is probably the modern-day 'Charles Dickens' (at least on this site), because of his precise descriptions, which through the written word are expressed very eloquently. A rare talent. Just my opinion. Cheers John
