Please name all fish and place a contact phone number onto any electrical items. 10% commission will be taken on all sales. Items on the table will go on sale from 10.40a.m.
2. 11.00a.m Talk on ‘A fishkeepers visit to Singapore Part 1’ by our special guests
Mr. Kevin and Mrs. Christine Webb.
3. 12.15p.m. approx. Shared ‘pot luck lunch’. Ryedale A.S. will provide the tea and coffee and we ask that you, please, bring along a savoury and/or sweet item to add to the lunch pot.

New on Tyler Stone's Blog:
Monday's blog posts are a particularly jolly set of ones.
Original 'Genesis' guitarist Anthony Phillips has a new album imminent. With a bit of luck and a fair wind I shall be talking to him this afternoon, but as a taster, here is one of my favourite of his tracks:
I shall also be talking to Jon Anderson, but in the meantime we have a link to a Jon Anderson biography and competition:
We have regular reader Dave McMann's review of a recent London show by 'Curved Air':
Rick Wakeman is a jolly nice chap. Here is a link to a story and picture of a charity appearance he made over the weekend:
After weeks of having my house full of visiting scientists, musicians and my nearest and dearest I had an evening to myself last night. What did I do? I listened to Judge Smith's album 'The Climber' and was moved to write a review almost immediately:
We have a link to a Mimi Page review:
The other day I posted a YouTube link to an old song by 'Detective'. However, Michael D-B has suggested that I should actually have posted a totally different song. Do I look like the sort of bloke who argues with Marquises? Nah:
And finally, as regular readers of this blog will know, although the vast majority of what we cover is at least vaguely relevant to the releases on the Gonzo Multimedia group of companies, there are some things – mostly book reviews – that are included because I think they are interesting. Here, as always, I would like to say that any opinions expressed are my own and have nothing to do with any of those nice people at Gonzo Multimedia. Today I post a review of a jolly good biography of Patti Smith:
See you tomorrow..

I can't say I've ever really liked Bugs Bunny and his stable-mates, always found Bugs to be a bit false, like he was hiding something, (most likely dismembered body-parts) and sly. But here's his début:
