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.


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