    Good to see, Ged. Thanks. That's an odd graphic that they have for the 1804 Dingle duel. It looks more like a couple of chaps in Tudor doublets going at it with rapiers and daggers, whereas the duellists in question, Sparling and Grayson, used flintlock pistols. I don't believe the duel took place at the Ancient Chapel but in the dell of the old dingle, going here by Robert Griffith's History of the Royal and Ancient Park of Toxteth They also need to correct the spelling of "St. Domingo's."

    Steven, glad you weren't in there singing.

    Hope that isn't the reason for the attack either.

    "The Poets Corner in Park Hill Road, Toxteth was sprayed with bullets at 2am."

    Does the gunman not like poets or is it pubs they don't like?

    Just being facetious.

    They organised the trip to the Ancient Chapel, the Turner Home and the Dingle Tunnel.
    I bluffed my way in!
    It was well organised. They even gave out notes, and about 4 or 5 pages of "A Tram Ride to Dingle" were included (without saying where they came from).
    And no plug in that list of books!

    How cheeky - not you, them.

    You should have made a fuss. If they'd confronted you about how you bluffed your way in, you could have said you were tipped off that they were going to use pages from your book, they might've re-imbursed you in some way, even if it was offering you places on any future events FOC.

    Thanks Ged and Shy.
    The 'funny' thing was that one of the organisers (no names, no pack drill) knows me very well.

    Hi PhilipG

    As a fellow author, I can sympathize that you were not given proper credit for your work. You should write a letter of complaint. Maybe you have already done so. I also concur with Shy that your book is great, mate. I was very pleased to get you to sign a copy for me when we met in the Dingle in May.

    Just found this thread, cheers for the link Ged, I had forgot that I had sent in a couple of photos to them, on page 2 of the Images link, theres an old photo of me and my wife, and an even older photo of the Beaufort Street School (Bewy Board) nativity play, from about 1969, that one made it into The Echo.
