If I was surfing this terrain on a surf board over actual waves the journey would involve a fair number of peaks and troughs but I decided my emerald kingdom was worth the effort.
Brief history here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kilbarchan I always look for something other than Wiki for places but have to admit they often provide the best info and concise history available.
My Emerald Kingdom and The Fairest of a Thousand Shires. Long hard day though on a bike over many hills.
Even though I'd been in training it was still a tough outing and I was ravenous when I returned to the house. I was too tired to cook anything and little conscripted chef goldilocks had escaped out a window with the three bears after munching all the food in the cupboards so there was only one thing for it. A Man Meal!
Four cans of Tennents Lager (apparently the only drink of choice nowadays for Katy Perry after her Glasgow Green Gig :o) a steak and kidney pie... a large tin of beans... and a garnish of tomatoes............ and a big, big spoon.
I felt I'd earned it!!!!
Video. A favourite but very underrated singer and band. Great liquid guitar solo halfway through this by Jen Turner that Hendrix would have approved of and the versatile Mr Arthur channelling his inner Rod Stewart for this one occasion. I know everyone has different musical tastes but how this guy isn't a household name by now always amazes me. But then the Velvet Underground (who this band remind me of in some ways) were largely ignored by the chattering masses when they were around. Now I come to think of it so was everybody worth their salt in the music, art, book, or film world. ( Poor one eared Vincent never sold a single painting during his lifetime so he must be totally pissed off now at the money changing hands when no one gave a toss when he really needed it.) Story of most artists. One of the best original songwriters of the last fifteen years and yet most folk are still unaware of him. Thank you reality TV music shows. The future of new music is safe in your capable hands.
