Re: Music - What are you listening to?

Philip Glass has a new opera (UK Premiere in June 2013) The Perfect American - a 'factional' account of the last years of Walt Disney.
I have tickets booked for the opening night and can't wait!

At the moment I am listening to his opera "Appomattox".

Re: Any Famous Librivox persons out there ?. {Not pro narrat

Many years ago (nearly 40yrs!) I was interviewed on Yorkshire Television on a programme called "Calendar". The interviewer was the late Richard Whiteley (a charming man) and his co-presenter was Austin Mitchell (now MP for Great Grimsby!). Richard Whiteley: http://wiki.apterous.org/images/0/0a/Richa...

Re: Amusing Place Names.

Not a place-name per se, but the locals in Castleford in West Yorkshire had a battle with the Local Council who wanted to rename "Tickle Cock bridge" as "Tittle Cott Bridge". The locals won - the name originates from its use by courting couples! Story: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howa...

Re: New Forum Software!

Is there a setting for increasing the default font-size? I can hardly read the text any more. I know about icreasing text-size in firefox, but the text here is smaller than on other forums which I visit.

Please help?

At school I was, and I think even today I still am, everyone's "invisible friend". We homeschooled three of our four school-age children. The fourth child was very happy at school whereas the other three were deeply unhappy. A lot of time was spent undoing the emotional damage that school had done. ...

When I advertised the python for sale, I got an invite to the local TV station to appear with my snakes on a local news programme.
