Glad you enjoyed "Lord Frackin Howell".
On another front I have received from Isobel the prestigious 3rd prize from the 52 Hertz competition. I must say I was a little disappointed with the "inflateable" but have successfully adapted it for purpose.

Cheers for your note on Break The Loop. Like lots of kids I got bullied from the get go. Also had incredibly difficult problems with my daughter, who is gay, and was badly bullied by pretty much the entire school for the last 2 years of her school life.
The school refused to recognise it as homophobic bullying, didn't do a thing about it, it wasn't covered in the school bullying policy either. So I took it to the LEA and we pushed for over a year to get the problem recognised and dealt with. Eventually, after having to threaten them with legal action, using the excellent resources at Schools Out, and making complaints to the police, they relented, accepted it, changed the policy to include homophobia, and also introduced the subject in two community classes. Could have done with someone like you on our side back then!

Hi Cate. Big thanks for your comment on 'True Manna', glad it touched you. I spent a day of pondering and wandering, firstly in the day time, to a beautiful church in Stratton, Cornwall, where i got to explore from the top of the tower to the final cornerstone. Then returned at night with drizzle and owl calls. True Manna was the night time inspired one, the daytime one 'but first through the gate' was a little lighter. Nice to have two, daytime, nighttime, both sides of the coin. An experiment in openness. Not often i get two in one day straight out with no corrections. At least it made sense to at least one person. :D

Hello Cate. Glad you liked "Everybody's Gone Serfin'". I poached a lot from the John O'Farrell book and, of course, the tune from the Beach Boys. Still, they pinched it from Chuck Berry!

Thanks for commenting on "Widening the Circle of Friends". I really didn't need to define "fizzog" - just direct folks to my foto!

Hi Cate, Thankyou for adding such a nice comment to my poem 'Autism' You are right of course. but what about a kiss from a child who has very mild (Possibly undiagnosed) Autism or from an Autistic adult or if that kiss is desired or not by someone. Only saying this to illustrate that this is such a big topic and more widespread than most think.

Thanks for your thoughts on "Boots".
I only ever get to be naughty in my head these days!

Thanks so much for your kind comment on "Les Mots qui Rient" (Laughing Words). I found it a joy that you appeciate the sonnet-form. So many don't. In fact because of the seemingly rigid structure the sonnet seems to have become passé, which I regard as a tragedy. I think it is one of the most powerful forms of poetic expression ever to be created. Just the meter makes me go weak at the knees :-) Honestly, I think I belong in the era of the troubadours and early sonneteers!
Take care and thanks again for the contact.

Hi Cate - ta for comment on the Greek mini-poem - wrote it as a whim really - spur of the moment thing just as i was about to pop out to the shops!!
Sun 26th Jun 2011 22:02
Thanks for your comments on my last two Cate. Not sure enough peeps would understand the last one to perform it.
Re the first one, I had dad in mind when I wrote about the tally. I have vivid recollections of him being delighted every time on of his work colleagues popped it. 'You never guess who's died' being the first thing he'd say as I walked through the door... Poor Harry Pickworth...

'Stranger in a strange land'...
Yes... purpose, loneliness, grief, etc., all part of the human condition.

Thanks for your thoughts on 84-0.
It really did happen. One of our first games for the u13s.
I have cribbed almost entirely one by Pam Ayres called 13-0 about her son making the school football team. You should check out her superior original.

thanks for the comment on 'Spring is coming' Cat.. To be honest, it was only meant to be a little bit of fun this one while I am working on some somewhat more heavier stuff, shall we say but I did have great fun reflecting spring in all of it's beauty.
let's hope it a good un this year! A

Hi Cate, thank you for your recent comment on the 'silence' poem, I'm hoping you can hear this read at Wigan next time you are there.
Wed 16th Mar 2011 14:51
That tapping sound you hear on The Wars of the Roses is me hitting my mate (a Lank) on the head.
Wed 16th Mar 2011 14:14
Thanks as ever for commenting on Sausages, Cate. Unless I'm misreading other comments you're the only one who's got it, as it was indeed meant to be ironical. Oh well.
Thu 10th Mar 2011 21:21
Thanks for your comments on Works of Art, Cate.

Thanks for your thoughts on Senior. A teacher at school advised us to only write about what we knew about! Old age I know about.

Thanks for you comment on Two Litre Capri. I think you can see why it doesn't work on paper.
I think you have to be from Barnsley to understand it, but if you're from Barnsley then you don't get the joke.
Thu 18th Nov 2010 11:16
Thankou for your comment Cate. I knew you would get it and empathise. LOve Yolande.

Thank you, Cate, for reading 'It is.. (Freedom)'...
I was at the beach on Friday and Sunday - it was paradise, which got me thinking about how free I felt and why...
Sun 24th Oct 2010 17:17
Thanks Cate. Much appreciated

Thanks for the comments on Tom Pudding. I assume when you refer to the old girl chugging away you weren't referring to Our Gert!
Mon 18th Oct 2010 19:33
Dear Cate as you've been kind enough to leave positive comments about my poems I thought you might like to check out this link to some poems of mine on You Tube, at least it will increase my count from single figures!
Fri 1st Oct 2010 18:11
Hi Cate, thank you so much for your comments on "Read My Lips". Glad it amused you. Best Wishes, Lynn xx

Hi - ("Mischa")-thanks for the comments, but I don't quite know what to say about that !!
would you not mind if your daughter (say) was selling sex to feed her drugs habit ? or am I getting narrow-minded in my old age ??
all the best. B
