Hi.

How many of you have been put off folk music by the 'absolute prats' that it seems to attract. (Sorry but they're often school teachers) A few years ago I visited a folk club and sang a song I liked. In one line of the song it said something about "Fishing for the Whale". When I'd finished my little rendition I was told that the song was nonsense because the whale is a Mammal and not a fish. They said it should say Hunting for the.... BLAH...BLAH...BLAH.. BLAH... Several of the small gathering agreed. I wished I'd stayed at home... and did in future. Well, from that little gathering anyway.

Happy New Year to you all.

Bill

PS Thought I'd start the New Year with, hopefully, a healthy argument.
