Friday Fun – Elevator Woman

God
Bless These Modern
Inventions

A fifteen year old Amish boy and his
father were in a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but
especially by two shiny,  silver walls that could move apart and then slide back
together again.

The boy asked, ‘What is this
Father?’

The father (never having seen an
elevator) responded, ‘Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I
don’t know what it is.’

While the boy and his father were watching with
amazement, a fat old lady in a wheel chair moved up to the moving walls and
pressed a button.

 

 

The walls
opened, and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and
the boy and his father watched the small numbers above the walls light up
sequentially.

 

They continued to watch until it reached
the last number, and then the numbers began to light in the reverse
order.

 


Finally the walls opened up again and
a gorgeous 24-year-old blond stepped out.

 


The father, not taking his eyes off the
young woman, said quietly to his son…..

 

‘Go get your
Mother’

Friday Fun – Tribute To John Sullivan – RIP

Somehow the sad news of the passing of one of, if not the, best comic script writer of our time had passed me by until I noticed an obituary in a magazine I was reading earlier this week.

John Richard Thomas Sullivan OBE (23 December 1946 – 23 April 2011) was an English television scriptwriter responsible for several popular British sitcoms, including Only Fools and Horses, Citizen Smith and Just Good Friends.

His last work was Rock & Chips, a comedy drama prequel to Only Fools and Horses. The final episode of Sullivan’s last comedy series aired five days after his death from pneumonia on 23 April 2011.

Words will never do him justice but hopefully this will.

Liver Birds

The Liver bird (pronounced /ˈlaɪvərbɜrd/, thereby rhyming with “diver” rather than matching the pronunciation of Liverpool) is the symbol of the city of Liverpool,

The above picture is of the two birds that top the clock towers on the Royal Liver Building, at Liverpool’s Pier Head, overlooking the River Mersey. The building, now headquarters to the Royal Liver Assurance, is probably the best-known in the city.

Each tower is topped by a metal sculpture of a cormorant-like liver bird, designed by Carl Bernard Bartels and constructed by the Bromsgrove Guild.

The Liver Birds is a British situation comedy, set in Liverpool, Merseyside, which aired on BBC1 from 1969 to 1978, and again in 1996.

It was created by Carla Lane and Myra Taylor. The two Liverpool housewives had met at a local writers club and decided to pool their talents. Having been invited to London by Michael Mills (BBC Head of Comedy) and asked to write about two women sharing a flat, Mills brought in sitcom expert Sydney Lotterby to work with the writing team. Lotterby had previously worked with Eric Sykes, Sheila Hancock and on The Likely Lads.

Carla Lane in fact wrote most of the episodes, Taylor co-writing only the first two series. The pilot was shown as an episode of Comedy Playhouse, the BBC’s breeding ground for sitcoms, in April 1969.

Finally there was The Liverbirds group who were a British all-female beat group, based in Liverpool, active between 1963 and 1968. The hard-rocking quartet (consisting of vocalist-guitarist Valerie Gell, guitarist-vocalist Pamela Birch, bassist-vocalist Mary McGlory and drummer Sylvia Saunders) was one of the very few female bands on the Merseybeat scene.

Indeed, they were one of the few self-contained all-woman rock and roll bands anywhere in the world at the time.

They achieved more commercial success in Germany than in their native land. Early in their career, they followed in the footsteps of fellow Liverpudlians such as The Beatles and Rory Storm and the Hurricanes and made their way to Hamburg, Germany.

Here they are with a cover of a Chuck Berry classic.

“Talking About You” – The Liverbirds

The Liverbirds were one of the top attractions at Hamburg’s Star-Club and they released two albums and several singles. One of those singles, a cover of Bo Diddley‘s “Diddley Daddy” rose as high as #5 on the German charts.

They originally broke up in 1968, after a tour to Japan though they last played together in 1998.

“The Stealer” – Free

I went down to the centre of town
And my feet was a burning ground
She stood on the corner merrily as can be
I said hey good lookin won’t you come with me
She said yeah

Came to steal your love

The sun was shining
