An Old Farm Ratter Comes In For A Warm.



That's a picture of our Fido the Jack Russell terrier.  She's fifteen years old and still plodding on.  Here she is being a star in front of our Stanley Mourne number 7 solid fuel range.  

Talking of stars or even starless.  Two versions of King Crimsons Starless for you.  I saw The Unthanks a couple of years a go at Killarney Folk Festival.  If you ever get the chance to see them sing and clog dance, don't miss it.    They are brilliant!

The other version is of The David Cross Band.  I saw them play this in Germany in Loreley at The Night Of The Prog Festival.  David Cross was in King Crimson and David Jackson was in Vandergraf Generator.  A band which was formed at Manchester University.  The David Cross Band were brilliant.  I love this version of Starless.

  1. I love the Unthanks Dave. I have seen them live once and on TV a couple of times. Interesting two versions of the song here.

    The little dog looks happy warming up.

    1. Thanks Kim. We do treasure Fido. She is part of the family and we have another young terrier to take over from her one day. Fido is a pal and a character. Thanks for your comment.

  5. Hi Gwil. Do you mean that she is a good watch dog? She doesn't like rats but she isn't aggressive to humans. Thanks!
