Coventry latest!

The Bishop of Coventry will be installing 7 canons during our service, so it will be longer than usual, though I have no idea how much longer. And they're expecting a congregation of 600, god's teeth! (All for meeeeee! says Jen!) The psalm will be Psalm 150 to a setting by the Brazilian composer Aguiar, which is simply brilliant and totally different! I don't think any of you live remotely near Coventry, but it would be wonderful if you could come. Ah well...nice to dream!

Could I induce you to look at www.theclacks.org.uk/RPS/index.html to see when and where we're singing? You never know, you might like it! And it's possible we'll be near you some time soon.

Hello.... only me.....

I think your art page on your website is really good. You need to get onto flickr and put a little art album together. You do some really cool stuff.....

Oh god, flickr, that's more new stuff! I've toyed with (and more or less abandoned) facebook, but not yet explored flickr. Thanks for the heads-up.

With reference to your one below - outrageous that people haven't replied. The rudeness of people nowadays makes me fume! I know they're your friends, but they must know - if they've ever tried to organise something themselves - that numbers are vital. But it is a bit of a way off and at possibly not the most thriving time of the year, so maybe you can do the patient thing for a while and then perhaps follow up with a blustery lie about problems with your e-mail, IPS down etc, that you've had things bounced back so would they mind confirming that they've heard from you, etc. Am sure you can come up with a good form of words!

Thanks, Milla. I was getting a bit hot until I remembered that of course one feature of email you just mustn't forget is that many people don't log on every day, so my invitation could be still sitting unread on their ISP's mail server. Can't really get cross with them for that, can I?

In the event, the bar is the best solution, since it'll be quiet at that time and will accommodate as many or as few as turn up. I'll still need to give the hotel a clue regarding numbers, so they know how many canapes to provide, but that can safely be a ballpark figure.

Facebook bad.....

Flickr good!!!!!

It's just a photo album.... you can have friends and join groups and stuff if you want, a bit like facebook, but it's not essential.... you can exist as an island and not feel like you are missing the point..... it's not a "social networking tool" whatever the frik that means!!

Facebook makes me so angry... it's just for people who aren't interesting enough to blog or can't use google to find their friends or that got bored with friends reunited cos they had to pay to emailall those people that they have managed to get along wothout for the last twenty years!!

hahaha I am such a bitter b@st@rd!!

PS: with regards to my blog article, the clue was of course in the link at the end of the item that would magically transport you to another page with the full story - it wasn't anything amazing, just my attempt at blogging something current - I don't often do it, and now you know why!!

oh dear, seems my ire has boiled over to the extent that I am now fluent in typonese.

Apologies for looking like an uneducated mule in my previous ranting comment!!
