Re: Gumbud Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)

I may have mentioned this before, but my old Uncle Joe bought the record of Slim Dusty singing the pub with no beer way back when it first came out, the 1950ís I think, Spitty and Sweetie were in Gods pocket then as they used to say, so they would not know it, how lucky for them. But he never stopped playing the bloody thing, I think that record sold more copies in Ireland than it did in Australia, everyone was singing it, bus conductors, messenger boys, barbers, every Tom Dick and Harry, I knew every word of it by heart.

Ah Bulgarian cigars! Mussolini was a great fan of the Bulgarian cigar, norra lorra people knew that.
Now I donít know if thereís any truth in this story or not, but a chap from County Clare was telling me that during the war his Uncle worked in a Bulgarian cigar factory, when they couldnít get the raw material in they used to catch dozens of the factory Rats, gas them, filet them, flatten them out with a wooden mallet, dry them and finally roll them, I believe regular Bulgarian cigar smokers couldnít tell the difference.

Re: Gumbud Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)

Great achivement that Spitty.

Here's something I spotted in todays news involving a drone, this discovery would never have been made if the weather conditions had not been just right.



New discovery by drone near Newgrange.
The drone that captured the image belongs to historian and author Anthony Murphy, who has been recording and writing about the Boyne Valley for many years.
He said: "The weather is absolutely critical to the discovery of this monument. I have flown a drone over the Boyne Valley regularly and have never seen this."
He said the bit of moisture left in the soil "lodges in the archaeological features a little bit more than it does in the surrounding soil and the crop that is growing out of the soil is greener in the archaeological features and drier outside of them".
"So when that crop is harvested all surface traces of this monument will vanish and we may not see this monument again for two or three decades depending on when we get another prolonged dry spell like this"
