LG Osprey GABFEST for November 2012

  • Off now - A trip to Dunblane tomorrow but should be back in time to post some Classics.

    Off to South Wales (Milford Haven/Pembroke) at the weekend - All Go.

  • B & B - The export of coal from US to China has been a big debate this last two years. and can quote from New Scientist.

    You will notice that The state of Montana is emphasised (The home of HELLGATE).

    PLANS for mega exports of US coal are poised to become the next flashpoint in the battle over climate change. The industry wants to massively increase shipments of coal to China and other energy-hungry Asian nations. Such a move would undo the environmental benefits of weaning US power plants off the carbon-rich fuel and lock developing countries into decades of dirty power.

    So far, protests about the proposed exports have mostly been local affairs, led by those living along the railroads that will transport the coal from mines in Wyoming and Montana to planned ports on the Pacific coast.

  • Well B&B We do all have Volumn controll on our computers, so if something is too loud or we don;t like it, we can just turn it down.  I haven;t make my full selection yet, but I'm thinking mine will be soft and crooney rather than loud.  But then I do have one funny one (anyway I think it's funny)  and true classics sometimes get very loud - like real live cannons in one.

    I've been out on an errend and back since my last post.

  • June I have a lot of choices but too many it is very difficult. You can ignore but please listen as not all will be loud.

    I am not organized and will post for a change as the mood takes me.

    Oh dear I meant organised as spelt it the American way:)

    Keith, I wish I could find the report on Hellgate as so interesting. It really was fascinating.

    Now I am off to bed at a sensible time

    "Up the Wooden hill" yawn

  • Hi everyone, flying visit as having an early night.

    Looking forward to the music night tomorrow - be interesting to see/hear what each of us regard as a "classic".  No doubt, as usual it will be a good night and lots of great selections.

    Off now -  Good Night all.

  • June Spradlin
    Strange funny, I got more sympathy from you and others on a failed cake (that didn't disturb  me in the least) than I did when I was sick. 

    Well (((June))) if you ever needed evidence that I can't keep up, there it is.  So sorry you were ill and I hope you've fully recovered - it sure looks as though you are right back on form :-)

  • Good afternoon, all - is there life anywhere?  I'm looking forward to the Music Night!

  • We'll be there Clare.  Maybe everybody is bussy elsewhere getting ready.  See you later.

  • Just finished packing to head over to Scotland tomorrow morning before going to my son's for tea.  Have a good evening folks and I am sure it will entertain me reading it all back on the ferry tomorrow!!!

  • I hope you have a good crossing, Val.

  •   We visited sugar's home town of Wyndaham today went to the famous Abbey and lit a candle from us and all members of the Gabfest, hope you did not mind.

  • Skipper, not only do I not mind, I am grateful that you do this in our (my) name.  And thank you for the pictures.  I believe that under certain circumstances tears are evidence of the presence of the Holy Spirit and now I have to wipe away tears so as to see to type.  What are an ocean and half a continent to Him?  Nothing at all.  Thank you for thinking of Sugar and of us.

  • The new Music Night tthread has been posted.

  • Good morning, Gabbers  After another enjoyable Music Night it is OK to come back here  :). I didn't mean to chase everyone away forever.
