Hope you'll sleep well, Compo...  (rather you than me - I like my warm comfy bed!)

DJ360 I must have seen you about during those years as they were my favourite pubs as well. Your right about the coffee it was rubbish, I bet you also went in Bulwell Youth Club when it was first opened in the old building at the rear, great times.

 

Not so much in the Youth Club Mick. What I recall was like a school Gym I did a few Discos for them later on.  Terrible acoustics as I recall.. but fun was had by all.

Doo Wah Diddy was a hit here for Manfred Mann.. not Herman's Hermits. The original was by The Exciters.. a US band who also first recorded 'Tell Him'.. which was the first hit for our own Billy Davis.

 

 

Zip A Dee Doo Dah was originally from Disney's film 'Song of the South'..in 1946, but was a hit here in 1963 for Bob. B. Soxx and the Blue Jeans. A Phil Spector 'Wall of Sound' recording.

 

 

Herman's Hermits.. like all UK bands of the time.. covered a number of US hits.. but their biggest hit was 'I'm Into Something Good'.. which they 'borrowed' from US girl group, 'The Cookies'.

 

 

 

The Cookies were also responsible for the original of 'Chains'.. which the Beatles did on their first album.

I saw an interview once with Pater Noone from Herman's Hermits. He said that they were once more popular then the Rolling Stones! I don't know what he was on but I'd like some of it!

Awoke to a frozen tent early this mornming so I went out fro a bike ride in the dark. Yes I know...I'm bonkers. Came back and had a quick breakfast before going out into the moors for a long walk. The day turned out fine and sunny but a bit on the cold side, with a chilly breeze. I have just finished cooking an Ethiopian style meal for tea and I am looking forward to it, so without further ado let me say that photos will be available of the moors, possibly tomorrow,  if any turn out ok.

Compo, what on earth possessed you to stay in a tent overnight? Especially  where you live.

Compo lets see if the cold has caused any cognitive impairment:

Waddo: A typical Ethiopian dinner consists of a spicy sauce, vegetables par boiled until just Al Jolson Dente and a large, flat, fermented pancake-like bread called Injera. Pudding is usually either Creme caramel or Bula (A kind of semolina made from the innards of the Ensette plant). One then finishes with wery strong coffee in a tiny cup and cake or biscuit.  It takes a bit of getting used to but it is certainly different. :)

Incidentally, Ethiopia now has one of thte fastest growing economies in the world. Since the end of the war that caused all the trouble in the 1980s., the government has teamed up with China and the Chinese are putting in roads all over the place and extracting minerals like they are going out of fashion. The resultant wealth is filtering down through the population and there are probably fewer rough sleepers in their cities than we have here in UK.

That's good to know compo, it's something that's not wildly publicised, well not that I've noticed.

Beginning to panic about my concrete plinth for the phone box (which should arrive on Saturday). It is still looking quite damp and not as set as I had hoped it would be. I had asked for delivery to be mid-January but the machine could only be had this coming Saturday. :unsure:

Thought about you on New Years eve compo, just wondering if you would be bivvying up as usual. I only do that in fine weather these days. Second day of the year and second row of the Virtual challenge. Just easing myself into the daily routine with steady 10k rows. The plan is to build up to 20k p/d by the end of Jan. Bit slow these days atb12kph.
