On the way to the Fishmongers yesterday, Scott’s of Pocklington, this made me laugh!

Me and Midge Ure – Dancing With Tears In My Eyes!

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

I’ve just returned from a excellent, fantastic gig by Midge Ure, at Pocklington Arts Centre. A brilliant gig of all his great songs, and especially a fantastic rendition of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.

Dancing With Tears In My Eyes – so very true due to recent events!

Andy and Midge Ure, Pocklington Arts Centre, 10th Feb 2012

Not to put a downer on the event, the gig was fantastic, but to be honest and truthful I did have tears in my eyes, and found it difficult to hold them back when meeting Midge this evening. (due to recent events!). A very emotional evening.

Midge did comment “that he does write bloody miserable songs!” and wished us all the best.

A truly sureal moment, growing up in the 80s and listening to Midge Ure/Ultravox and then to meet Midge in person.

Thanks to Midge, Berenice (and my Dad!)

The Tour of Britain Race 2009 comes to Pocklington

Saturday, September 12th, 2009

Stage 1 of the 2009 Tour of Britain race passed through our local market town of Pocklington this afternoon, so I went along to record it. Stage 1 of the 2009 Tour of Britain started from Scunthorpe and finished in York. I had to move whilst video-ing otherwise, I would have been hit by a cyclist!

Must have been a nice day out for the policemen on motorbikes, I counted 40+ supporting the event!

I didn’t spot any “fat bottomed girls” in the race either!
