      He was just brilliant in Just A Minute, he was a silent fire cracker waiting to go off and when he did it was superb. It is a pity, he never achieved all the success as an actor, he craved. I would have liked to have seen him in East Enders - I mean if they can have Barbara Windsor or Ian Lavender in, there should have been a place for him.

      Recently, I discovered that KW along with Peter Sallis had been in a play adaption of Moby Dick in the 50's. This was a breath taking show by all accounts, where OW stripped by the theatre stage to the brick wall at the back.

      • Oy! Out here in Pennsylvania and alas, there's no appreciation for a good dance with a scimitar! And no single malts to be found! Missing the Inn! Save some for me.

        This place is so out of touch. I told someone I was a Pagan and they thought I meant the motorcycle gang!

        • was in dutch pennsylvania last year. very nice, if a little quiet. mostly amish towns so no alcohol and very polite people.

          they did rename the town of cross keys intercourse to generate some tourist income. great idea from a supposedly straight laced community. there's also paradise and eden down the road.

          if you get a chance got to gettysburg and do the battlefield tour. fantastic! and there's a few decent bars in the town, including an irish bar that serves reasonable guinness and has some decent irish whiskys.

          have fun and careful with that cutlass, lass.

            One of my acquaintances does ACW over here in the UK. His big treat was to go to Gettysberg in kit. I suspect it is like the Waterloo re-enactment.

                • First time in, so I'll take any dark ale the bartender decides and a couple of fingers of Screech.

                  So, apples are early this year . . . who's going to drop a recipe for scrumpy on me? I'm up for giving it a shot.

                  • Heres a pitcher of Old Jock WL just to get your palate ready for what could turn out to be quite a gut worrying time if you succeed in the scrumpy department!!

                    • Danke for the OJ (honestly, hadn't a clue 'till I looked it up.

                      Yeah, scrumpy. I've seen so many recipes now, gawd knows what I'll end up with. There was one (name fails me now) called for a measure of meat . . . raisins??? Started to sound like a mince meat pie.

                        • Paul gunningham's Own scrumpy recipe on here http://www.zider.co.uk/ looks the most practicable. Although i can't see the bit where he adds the mice and toenail clippings.

                          • Thanks for the recipes, lads. I've got to give this a try. One of the folks we do yard maint' for has a grand yellow transparent apple tree, and they never do a damn thing with them.

                            Barkeep, strong black coffee for my wee brain. Overdid it a bit last night.
