    Sorry John, I forgot there were rules to this thread.

    There was a young lady of Cork
    Whose pa made a fortune in pork
    He bought for his daughter
    A tutor who taught her
    To balance green peas on her fork

    OK John, see if you approve of this

    There was a young fellow named Fisher
    Who was fishing for fish in a fissure;
    Then a cod, with a grin,
    Pulled the fisherman in...
    Now they're searching the fissure for Fisher.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Or this?


    There was once a choleric Colonel
    Whose oaths were obscene and infolonel.
    The chaplain aghast,
    Gave up protest at last,
    But wrote it all down in his jolonel.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Yes, I love infolonel and jolonel. You wouldn't have a clue what they were if you met them out of context.

    I like those Mike.


    There once was a farmer from leeds
    Who swallowed a packet of seeds
    It soon came to pass
    He was covered with grass
    But has all the tomatoes he needs.



    Try saying this after a few drinks.


    A flea and a fly in a flue
    Were imprisoned so what could they do
    Said the fly let us flee
    Let us fly said the flea
    So they flew through a flaw in the flue

    Confessions of a gardener

    I've a petrol-powered blower at last
    It creates a formidable blast
    I'll get the leaves done
    And won't it be fun
    If a short-skirted female walks past!

    I've seen one using Aberystwith, but somehow don't think John would like to se it here, think about it (or Google) Cardiff and Swansea should be fairly straightforward, but that's no fun.
    Cheers MIKE.

    I couldn't even pronounce that, let alone find a rhyme for it.

    Time for another musical interlude ...

    .. and when I was at school "greens" were something you ate, rather than something you voted for, but this song promoting sustainable transport was years ahead of its time ...

    Yes I found the Aberystwith one Mike. We have always called the village llanfairpg.

    I liked your video John, here is a green way to get around.

    It's scooters for grown-ups really, isn't it, and why not? You often see parents riding their child's scooter home from school. And talking of school, the "Push Bike Song" takes me straight back to my fourth year at secondary school (c1971) when we had a form teacher who was old, wise and surprisingly liberal. He allowed us to have a record player in the classroom so we could have music during our breaks, and The Push Bike Song was definitely our favourite at that time. There was a problem at one point when some of the rowdier elements of our class amused themselves by using their geometry compasses as darts, and the back wall of the classroom as a dart-board, damaging the wall cladding and posing the risk of someone being blinded by a compass point. Most teachers would have responded with threats and punishments, but not ours. Knowing that one of the culprits was gifted at art, he got him to design a giant abstract mural to cover the whole wall, and provided the rest with paints and brushes to carry it out, which they did with great enthusiasm. End of problem! He was quite a guy.

    He sounds like a good teacher John. I like his way of dealing with the situation.
