Judgement Day: 14/2/09, 11.00 am

Finally, at last, the news is out! I can confirm that the Keeling XI will be playing Eton's 4th Field on the 14/2/09 11am. and another slightly less relevant success story is that I've finally discovered how to make a post!

Its the date that everyone wanted.... its the date that no one thought we would get... its the kick off time (11am) that means we can play and then have a massive lunch and drink till our livers are like grandpas without having to worry about playing after lunch!

so now all we need is a team...

recruitment has officially begun. as it stands, i know that so far we have harry, simon, jim, george and myself. 5.

so please feel free to book your place in the keeling XI. so probably just write something on this blog if you want to play or email me archiekeeling@hotmail.co.uk . but i will be making really over excited phone calls all over the shop in the next few weeks, so beware!... you better have a dam good excuse not to play..

lots of love, archie.

golden oldies

For years I have kept a pile of 45 rpm singles that used to be at the Oast House and also a number of LPs. From time to time I have got them out and listen to them, more often the LPs than the singles. I have now recorded all the singles onto my pc, adding them to Edward's itunes collection. Now it is much easier to listen to songs if I feel like it, plus a collection of much newer ones from Edward. If anyone wanted to hear a blast from the past then it is pretty easy to attach a song to an email. Tom

I thought we were going bto be able to listen to them

And why they're bust

Also here.

Just to say that as a result of the credit crunch some junk mail has come through my door.

It isn't offering me a credit card, as it would have done a couple of years ago, but short term loans with interests rates starting at 76.9% and topping out at 442%.

Hope none of you need to take advantage of this offer.

Summer festivals

So, Lizzie and I went to Bestival last weekend, on the Isle of Wight. We didn't actually go together - I didn't know she was there - but I arrived at midnight on Friday night with no tent and a malfunctioning mobile, making it impossible for me to find my tent-mates. After four hours of pointless wandering around in the rain in a LOT of mud, I spied Lizzie and her friend Kemi, and they very kindly put me up for the night - after we'd done a bit more dancing obviously. Very kindly, in fact, as one of their two tents had become waterlogged and five of us, with five big rucksacks, had to squeeze into a four-man tent. Think overnight sardines.

Despite the mud we had a whole lot of fun, and Lizzie has promised that she will be coming to Secret Garden Party next year - Alice? Poppy? And anyone else? How much fun would it be to organise some mud-wrestling initiation ceremonies for some Keeling SGP first-timers?? All we need is Grandpa on the sidelines shouting "weed" at us.

Talking of Secret Garden Party, I've finally got some videos from this year's SGP up on youtube and I think they should be shared with the family. I don't know if you remember my 8brother's post 'Big sister trounces little bro in mud wrestling bout' from last summer? Well, we were back by the mud pit this year and while I could not face the thought of getting covered in that much mud again, Trev was a better man than me. I hope we're all very proud of him xx

Just in case that doesn't work on 8brothers, here's the link to the video on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRnD8VP-ObU
