    Stolen tune from the Irish Rovers, a favorite of my Irish bred father...

    At least it's better than "Pigs can swim and pigs can fly... pigs can see the wind go by... pigs make lovely household friends... when winter comes and summer ends..."

    tim,

    I'm curious where this quote comes from?

    There was a fascinating Op-Ed article in the NY Times last week or so that told us how up through the 19th C. at least, rural peasants in Europe (the actual piece dealt with France) would just "hunker down" during the winter with their barn animals (living furnaces) and a few wood logs and "hibernate" through winter.

    Your quote seems to "confirm" this.

    With all the scintillating conversation and chicken recipes, let's not lose count of where we are. It looks like we are up to shot #6 next (Sile is next). Am I correct?

    What are we including in the packaging so we know who to send it on to next? Is the whole list included?

    Also, I used to be called "hkr" on this site, and that is what I am listed as on the list (#16, I think). My address has not changed, so it should be okay. Figure about another 3 months before I get it?

    George,

    Every Sunday after Church (church with a capitol 'C'), lunch or dinner was served in our Irish/Polish house to the tunes of The Irish Rovers. Mom and Dad must have had a dozen LPs. They would stack them up on the Magnavox console record player and it was either endure it or go to your room for a bit of peace and quiet. After 15 years of this ritual, every damned Irish Rover song has been burned into my brain.

    I will get the significant other to look up the origins of this particular song. She is an internet search wizard extraordinare.

    Change your name? ! You lose your place in line. No camera for you!

    I am just kidding. The list is included in the package, if it somehow gets lost, I will send the person a replacement list to include. All members of the list are listed by real names and addresses on the shipping list. Thanks for the update on name change, it will help in the identification part of the project (tentatively November of 2008).

    As far as when? They are still looking for camera 1.

    It will take a little longer to get through Europe, then on to Canada and wind up here in the US of A. Hard to say, not knowing.



    Turn the camera off!

    Tim,

    I haven't heard the song Lily the Pink in years! You prompted me to go search it out on You Tube and watch it.. it was a hit when I was young and my parents had the vinyl disc which I played, on repeat, (much to the annoyance of the other household members) many a time.. Ah memory lane..

    Still waiting patiently for my Post man to deliver either camera 4 or 5..
    But who will win.. Australia or the US...

    If you saw a man drowning and you could either save him or photograph the event...what kind of film would you use?

    Instead of eating lunch, my curiosity got the best of me....

    Pigs Can't Swim

    Melody:
    By: W. Millar
    On: The Irish Rovers, Tales to Warm Your Mind

    I once had a pig that loved me
    We lived in a shed in the country
    In a middle class district of Dunfries
    But that sad kind of pig was he

    Chorus:
    Pigs can't swim and pigs can't fly
    But pigs can see the wind go by
    Pigs make lovely household friends
    When winter comes and summer ends.

    Each week that lofty beastie
    Would beg with eyes so misty
    To take a boat o'er to England
    His life dreams to fulfill.

    To plunge into the Channel
    Swim to France would be his gamble
    Lord Chadwick couldn't hold a candle
    To such a darin' pig as he.

    "Are you tired of me?" I asked him
    "Will our friendship not be lastin'?"
    But he told me I was graspin'
    And he needed to be free.

    "So will you take me there tomorrow?"
    "In a pigs eye" I said with sorrow
    So he drowned himself in the bathtub
    (Naughty boy) and I had porkchops for me tea.

    Early in the morning
    So early in the morning.
    So early in the morning.
    Before the break of day.


    Found the lyrics here: http://gamgee.acad.emich.edu/~roth/SONGS/pigs_cant.html

    Perhaps a song Homer Simpson should not sing to "Spider Pig".

    There's no amount of pagan rituals that will help Tim if he dips the colour film into his soup!
