If anyone is going to drink the Fredericks (assuming it's "on". Could they please wear a badge (button) saying so. Then we can ignore what they say and help them to the loo now and then.

I will be at the Lion around 0830 PM latest and will have set the lighting and sound decks up beforehand (this will consist of throwing two switches and turning the fan on.

Looking forward to turning names into friends....

Anybody at all fiddler2 - the more the merrier!

We had our first official night at the upstairs room at the Lion last night (We have been in the downstairs one nearly 20 years!) It seem to work a treat and it is reet good for folkie events.

I will be at the Lion by 8:30pm on Friday - If anyone gets there earlier please feel free to either wait for me or Spot or make your way to the upstairs room.

See you all soon.

Will PM those kind enough to offer bed space, to let you know if I will be there... I'm hoping to be able to pick up my two new cats en route back (that's via Leeds although the way I drive, it could be Lancaster!!) depending on the lady who is releasing them.... will get back to everyone soon...

Thanks, hopefully see you there!!

Liz - you can kip here if you can put up with two cats sleeping on you and a dog licking your face (otherwise house trained)

Re the end of Ramadan (I think it's called Eid at that juncture) Yvonne thinks it starts around 22.00 on the Saturday so if an early start is made to eat, there shouldn't be much difficulty. After that it's just a case of dodging the dodgems.

I'll take more care with punctuation in future!

Treaties - if I bring the car, there is no problem... will see how Manitas feels about that!!! Whooopeee!!

(can you pm a map please, as I have the directional talents of a dead stoat....)

Oh, and Ramadan - think yourselves getting off lightly. We had 3 local teenagers killed here at Eid last year, doing exactly the same thing. Their car lost steering and went into a concrete pillar in the Limehouse link tunnel. Oldest was 19.

Just recieved e/m from Yvonne to say "Isn't Saturday the end of Ramadan?" In which case everyone must be on their toes dodging the high powered motors hired for the event by doting fathers for their sons to let off steam round the street of M/cr. Evidently the police are helpless to intervene. There was a rather nasty episode last year when a driver was stopped, slapped about a bit and lost an eye during the 'argument' with the powers that were at the time.

Just a thought.

Liz, the more the merrier! It will be great to see you again, with or without appendages. Do be prepared to sing "The Harp Song of the Dane Women" again(even if it sounds only half as good without Lady P). Sorry I can't offer you anywhere to stay, but I'm sure some kind soul...

Er.... is it too late to ask if I can come ('doe' as it were, no appendages) because I was going to be away that weekend, but that has been postponed, and I'd like to still have my 2 days of freedom..... if I can't get to Paris, then Manchester is just as good.....

If there's anyone I could crash with, then I'm happy with a floor and a duvet, get on well with all aminals including Skipjack, I fart occasionally but I don't mind an early start to the morning.....

JohnJ, since there seems to be a trend on Mudcat to adopt new identities (viz. Ickle/Linda and Geordie/JohnR) your mother and I have decided to go one better, and swap our names completely! So that if you now find your mum is wearing a beard, and singing bass notes, while my mother discovers me playing an accordeon (accordion?), I am sure that you will understand!

And BTW, a late Happy Birthday to you (sorry, but I can't do fancy html)

Yip - Robbies it be. Best Bitter. Hatters Mild. Last count for the seasonal special was Robin bitter (very nice too) but Geoff is threatening to treat us to Frederics for that weekend. Bring a bag to keep your brain in...

No Draught Old Tom I'm afraid but the bottles are quite nice. Other bottles include the very acceptable German Bitburger (sp?) and the very odd Strongbow spiced cider! Lagers are Carling and Grolsh.

Not that I know anything at all about beer...;-)

Proper spelling of Indian is Shaandaar on 155 Wilmslow Road. Only reason for thinking of booking is to try a screw a discount but as you say we can always turn up and go.

(b) What kind of beer does the White Lion serve?
(c) HelenJ, are those of us who want to make an early start at 8am on Saturday OK to turn up at your house for a singing breakfast?

Matthew Edwards sir - don't believe scandal spread by the husband of the 'present Mrs. Skipjack'. He's just trying to stir it for me. Re your abhorrance of an 08.00 start on Saturdays, I'll have you know my friends and I meet at that precise hour every Saturday for breakfast an d music. It doesn't hurt one little bit! Mind you, the brick - courtesy of neighbours - has yet to come through the window.

Cheers all,

They would open at 9am if required (Knock three times and say hello. Then say that you were sent by Joe...) but 11am sounds far more reasonable to me. 11am to, say 5pm gives us plenty of time for an open mic. concert and/or a singaround. Be in Rusholme by 6-ish and in the Ducie by 8pm?

Spot did say 0800 but I know him better than that;-) It's his birthday today btw.

All together now - woof woof woof woof, woof woof
woof woof woof woof, woof woof
woof woof woof woof, woof woof woof
woof woof woof woof, woof woof

Looking forward to it.
