Great song, if you like Motown and Smokey Robinson.
"Paint it Black" was pretty good as well :lol:

And a book to make your worst enemy take to a desert island:

A Painted House by John Grisham

So beautifully written you could almost feel yourself there watching the paint dry :?

Awesome wherelse can you listen to the overture to Tannhauser by Wagner and his band, the karaoke version, followed by LedZep. I’m sooo impressed.
Here's to the nights I'll never remember with the friends I'll never forget...

Out of character novel by John Grisham but as you say CGR so beautifully written you didnt need a movie version as it enabled you to picture things so clearly from just his writing.

Why you would want your worst enemy to read it mind ? :?
The only problem with doing nothing is not knowing when you have finished.

Steve, my opinion of the book was summed up in the bit about watching paint dry ;)

Gotcha CGR … I thought it was a wonderful piece of prose. That sort of difference in opinion seems to sum up Shedweb !! ;) :)

I wouldn't wish any Martina Cole novels on my worst enemy.

Been away for the last couple of weeks in Southern Brittany, bugger all mobile coverage and the paid for WiFi didn’t work!

Therefore huge thanks to the amazing person who put up the Spotify playlist I thankfully downloaded before I went and to everyone who contributed to this most wonderful thread.

We may argue about all things rugby and long may we do so, but the sheer breadth of music on here is one of the greatest things about this fabulous site and it’s occupants.

Sadly the holiday is over and I’ll have my broadband back so I’ll return to writing comments about referees (possibly other stuff as well) :mrgreen:
