Best weapon against adversity is humour.
What next rematch?? Lightning cannot strike twice - and in any case, I said I don't think I'm one of natures little church organists. Plenty of others that'll do it (Mabel, Fanny Fosdyke, your good self), God will see to thatGill the Piano wrote:Learn it for the next rematch!
Talk of mis-heard lyrics, when I quickly read your message I saw "...book of British towel rails...."dave brum wrote:Wowee, that was a good day. Got this book of British town trails a few weeks ago for £2.99 and there were 2 trails in Oxford, which we both did. Plus lots and lots of poking all day.
Found this interesting article about the organist at the churches in the two neighbouring villages having been honoured by old queenie. She still plays as her name was on the Barnt Green newsletter which we picked up this week during an afternoon stroll around Barnt Green:

oh, and talking of organs 'Songs Of Reflection and Praise' presented by the choir of St.Jasons, which Biddy Bagshawe is the musical director of takes place at St.Jasons tomorrow afternoon at 1600. Sacred music? Bit of Tallis or 'Messiah'?? Or maybe Eric Whitacre??? In aid of the Organ Repair Fund. The one what she broke.
No doubt there will be something about the fundraiser for the Organ Restoration Fund on the St.Jason's newsletter tomorrow. If we're very lucky, we might get to see it before Easter - if we're luckier still, we'll see some pictures of the Choir singing on the StJ's Twitter feed. Though that may be one wish too far.
Listening to 'Running Down A Dream' by Tom Petty, which I believe he's half inched a bit from Dave Edmunds' 'Queen of Hearts'.
Churches need organs and for that reason it is a very worthy reason to hold a concert. But even if there was the opportunity to throw eggs or wet sponges at Ms.Fosdyke for £5 to the fund, I would not contribute. A couple of Lion Quality hens ova, or anything cold and wet thrown at the old (censored) would not atone in any way for what this person has said to me. I'll leave the judging to Merciful Allah.
I really do not know how I'll get over this. In as much as three years, I cannot forget it. I am the sort of person that, if somebody does a good deed or helps me, I shall remember them with honour until my dying day. However if someone does the opposite, they are in my bad books and my enemy for life. That's just me.
Expecting a picture of the choir in all their finery at the Songs of Praise and Reflection , with Ms.Fosdyke sat in the Director's chair, the organ console and piano in a sense of omnipresence on the church Twitter feed. She is, as we are all too well aware Director of Music there. Her arrogance, cockiness and confidence has got her places (along with her apparent vicious hatred of the weaker inhabitants of the Parish).
Indeed I am. That's exactly what she intended, the malicious old fornicator.Gill the Piano wrote:You're letting her continue hurting you. FFF.
I was also looking at a blue website last night
The church at Cofton, St.Michaels, still uses the Book of Common Prayer.
Grandad also recommenced my house renovation work, having been dogged by health problems and my wife having weeks off. Today, I sanded down the ceiling and one of the walls wot I plastered. I'm going to take on the remaining 3 walls tomorrow and some filling in of the holes. Oh and persistent cleaning down. Next week, if my health doesn't deteriorate again, I have to hang 2 doors. Not done that ever in my life and I refuse to pay a darren.
There'll be at least one blowing down St.Jasons Road tomorrow evening I have no doubt so I should get mine okay if we go out for an evening stroll on the first full evening of daylight saving time 2015. Any concerts on Goody Friday then, Gillchops??
Would I be as lucky with Easter from Kings tomorrow night, in HD??
The boss has spoken, laid down her iron fist and as of now, I am banned from:
1. mentioning the name of Fanny Fosdyke in this house
2. mentioning St.Jasons Church, St.Jasons Road, Birmingham B22
3. driving past St.Jasons or Fanny Fosdyke's house on way to Morrisons
4. accessing the website and/or Twitter feed of St.Jasons or the website and Facebook page of Fanny Fosdyke.
I mentioned her two cats (Oswald and Geoffrey) this morning and nearly started the third world war! HOWEVER I can still come on here and slag the old cowbag off
You know, is it really any wonder that churches are finding it so difficult to get organists in when they have to learn to impossibly decipher those silly dots?? Only superhumans (read Nietzsche) can do such a feat.
