a WEAVING OF WORDS

The use of textile language as metaphor continued to expand and develop. The warp and the weft (or woof), referring to the weaving together of horizontal and vertical yarn, has come to signify the building blocks or components of life or of an argument. More mundanely, losing the thread, cottoning on, and lining the pocket, are all self-explanatory terms. Dyed in the wool emphasises that cloth dyed before weaving retains its deep colour and is superior to the wool that is dyed in the piece.

EIGHT DAYS A WEEK ON LANZAROTE

The unique and dramatic landscapes of Lanzarote have provided the backdrop for a number of famous films.

SONGS OF MAJESTY

In celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday in 2016, the monarch had a number of special requests on her party-playlist. A longtime fondness for musicals since many made their way from Broadway to the West End of London in the 1940s—everything from Oklahoma! and Annie Get Your Gun—the Queen’s musical tastes also spanned the big bands of the 1930s and ’40s like Lester Lanin and World War II melodies of the era to the 1951 Irving Berlin-penned Fred Astaire hit “Cheek to Cheek” and songs honouring the commonwealth, including created by perhaps Andrew Lloyd Webber and Gary Barlow and the Commonwealth Band’s “Sing,” written for Her Diamond Jubilee in 2012 and featuring the Military Wives Choir.

ROCHDALE LIGHT ORCHESTRA presents a Jubilee Concert in a town of music

Graham Marshall founded The Rochdale amateur Light Orchestra in 2008 with the help of some enthusiastic local musicians. They wanted to get together on a regular basis to rehearse and perform music of a generally light-hearted nature from the mediæval to the present times. This they have done, with the obvious exception of lockdown and other necessary quiet times!

WHEN THE BOAT COMES IN

It is important to keep the historical memory of the island alive, in this sense, and I believe there is a budget to set up a Fishing Museum on the island, Why hasn't it been done?

THE COST OF FREE SPEECH

My own unconstructed but long held views on the matter I usually express by saying, if you cling to freedom of speech you must afford others the same right whether or not you agree with what they say, I do know that any time I have got into a fight it has begun at exactly the moment I realised I had overstepped the line between free speech and gratuitous insult.
