I was invited to a beer festival a couple of weeks back and there - whilst hammered - one of the chaps suggested we all start a Sea Shanty choir. It sounded a great idea.
Unlike most beer-inspired endeavours it turns out that it was a great idea.
We had our first outing last night - a big audience. Nine of us just got up and did it without having practiced at all. It was brilliant ! I've never known something come together so easily and naturally. No egos - no organiser... it just happened. The harmonies were excellent and the range of voices complete - I couldn't hear one duffer among us... which probably means that if there was one it was me !!!
This will definitely become a regular thing and - living by the sea - is exactly what life should be about.
I've just been edited on John Redwood's site after I'd responded to a comment which had appeared thusly:
"All this NHS waste [strong comment about a male-to-female sex operation - deleted by moderator] The only issues the NHS should deal with are those directly related to health."
"Oh I don't think you could class that as waste. It probably got used to make a new nose for a patient in the burns unit."
Obviously too lewd.
