I love sell-by dates. It means I can buy loads of food at reduced prices, eat it now, freeze it or as you say - they didn't have sell by dates when we were young (!!) and we are still here - just look and sniff - use your common sense - because, of course, The Government hadn't cornered the market in that resource in Grandma's day. Strange that they commandeered it rather than taxing it though!
And a Happy New Year to you .

Sad to read this. I never met Janet in person but when she was around on WOL she always gave me encouragement; this was especially appreciated when I was new to the site. I looked forward to reading her poems too. An interesting and a warm character!

Hi Paul - a rather belated welcome to WOL. Really like your poems - esp the one about Kyle. If you want to put a poem on the blog section then more folk will see it, which would be good imo! :)

In poetry terms I feel that 2012 has been an "interesting" year - and I don't mean that in any kind of a derogatory sense. WOL has continued to be what it has always been, and properly should be - a meeting place for the diverse worlds of poets and their works. This rich amalgam of styles, abilities and interests is what makes WOL a special place to visit; to marvel and smile at what moves people to write and to share their thoughts, to discuss, argue and thrash out concepts and nuances with those from the full spectrum of the poetry rainbow, to learn, be inspired and have one's eyes prised open by the matchsticks of experience, wisdom and intellect, to enjoy wandering through the blogs as a beachcomber; seeking out those unexpected bottled messages sent from distant shores in unique and considered languages for the finder to marvel at and interpret.
There is nowhere else like WOL. Thanks Julian, for your continuing work and dedication, and thanks to all those who make up the team that keeps WOL fresh, vibrant and informative, challenging and the ever-expanding forum it deserves to be.
Just one (very small) niggle:
"Write Out Loud ran its quota of monthly poetry nights in all the usual places: Wigan, Middleton/Rochdale, Sale, Stockport, Bolton, and Marsden . . . "
. . . believe it or not, it is rumoured that there is (intelligent?) life beyond those dark, Satanic hinterlands of the north-west. If anyone ever fancied a WOL weekend in Devon I would be happy to suggest a perfect, and very affordable venue . . .
Just off to paint my wheelbarrow . . .
Best wishes to all for a very happy and creatively enriching 2013.

Some fine lines - food for thought indeed - in this valuable introspection into poetic intent that serves as an introduction to the New Year offerings from all on WOL, let alone the wider world of poetry and verse today.

I remember (at times) staring past each others shoulders- I remember reading you: the lines you have now left in another's sand, I read your posts like some 'ackowlagement' acknowledgement of its past. Though the shoulders were always in the way. I 'appoligise' apologise for this. My miss-spelling is my way of saying sorry. Tommy x

Thanks, Phil, for your comments on Agapanthus. (South African in origin, I believe?) The statesman was Wilson, of course. On subsequent holidays we often used to see him with Mary and his son Robin, waiting on the quay at St Mary's to board a boat with the rest of the hoi polloi for one of the other islands with an enormous rucksack on his back - and rather unfeasibly short shorts, I fear.

Thanks for commenting on Agapanthus, John. They are quite tender plants, aren't they, originating from South Africa. I haven't had a great deal of luck with them. And maybe they don't like it so far north?!
Hi John. LOVE THIS!! Take care, Tony.

*If sustainable arrangements, which generate sufficient income to cover front of house staffing costs, can be agreed by 31st March 2013, the proposal will be withdrawn. If this is not possible, the proposed new weekend only opening hours will take effect from 1st October 2013.*
I wonder how we might contribute to the 'sustainable arrangements'?

Fascinating read - I so agree. It's ironic that I should read this now. You've made me feel a lot better about the 3 chickens I now have roasting in the oven! I bought them from the butchers counter at Asda and they had a best before Sunday date on. They smelt ok though - so I decided to risk it. I can't remember the last time I ever had a stomach upset - or my kids. There's a lot to be said for toughening yourself up to bacteria anyway - sheesh when I think back to how we lived as kids :) Antispetic disinfectant sprays might make a good poetry fodder also!

WOL has something for everyone who loves the written/spoken (and sung!) word. Those who strive to keep it going "behind the scenes" are worthy of the highest praise.
Well done and thank you for this invaluable "window on the word" (pun intended).
