CQN Vanessa Riddle Fundraiser


I’m enjoying the chat as much as anyone these days but I know you all remember what were really about as a club.  We have an update on the CQN Vanessa Riddle pop quiz fundraiser which will be held at Jury’s hotel, Glasgow on the evening of Saturday February 11.

The great news is that Frank O’Hagan has agreed to come along and do a set to close the quiz off. Frank’s third CD – Green Light to Freedom – will be mixed and mastered in the studio over the next month. Frank is also doing a concert with his band in the Backstage at the Green Hotel, Kinross on Saturday 18th February. Details are on Frank’s website web. Frank is a top class musician is a terrific live performer. He is also a lovely guy, so we’re just absolutely over the moon to have Frank along. Our good friends at Carling are donating some prizes too, which is also excellent news.

We have some spaces left so if you want to come along, visit Taggsybhoy’s music quiz homepage and contact him with your team name and numbers (max of 6 to a  team). He will let you know if you are successful. It is first come, first served. Vanessa Riddle Appeal

I’m off to contemplate the false value of cheap laptop hard disks. One day lost and counting, damn you HP!

    Angelo managed 15 world champions. That is no mean feat. I like to hear of guys who come from tough neighborhoods, who turn out nice guys, make something of themselves by making something of others. There is a nobility in that line of work and that type of life.







    What a magnificent statement, and part of a smashing piece. Well done Sir!!!

    Well said,being of a similar vintage I understand exactly what you have said and would under no circumstances wish this abomination of an organisation to continue,in any shape or form.

  4. When i seen John Divers name there, i thought “Surely not 2 ex celts as commanders in the fire brigade?”



    Cos Tony Shepherd is one, met him a coupla weeks ago. But he’s the only one to my knowledge since Mr Divers has long passed (the player, not the commander)

  10. A few words re amadeus.



    He did say the lawyers were looking at the material. It has been 7 hours since he set his hare running. My guess is that there is a big story but it needs to be bombproof before it is published.



    We’be waited 100 years. We can wait a few days longer.
