    Are we strange?

    When the man I was going out with won his firm's national prize for best something-or-other, which were travel vouchers, he asked me where I'd like to go. Then he realised by the big grin that he didn't really need to ask … we were airborne and on our way to Asbury Park! From the moment we touched down and got in our taxi, headed for my personal Mecca, I was in seventh heaven. The turnpike had me in raptures - the taxi driver was dumbfounded - and, as soon as I'd thrown my luggage into the hotel in Red Bank, we were off in another taxi (I couldn't hang around for buses) - we were off to Asbury Park. I'd 'sort of' arranged to meet Vini there (yes, a long-lost Laker) but hadn't quite got the meeting-point worked out. We were walking around the beach area when I heard 'Eileen?' and there was Vini in his car! He showed us round, well, everywhere - we met Tinker and saw inside the surfboard factory - went to see Southside's and Bruce's family homes, got all the necessary photos. Best bit was finally stepping inside the Stone Pony - wow, that was on another level - Wonder Bar was great, too. Mind you, I'd had more than my customary two drinks and was last seen by Vini (that night) sitting in the back seat of a taxi, laughing my head off! And you know what? Our hotel was paid for by a Laker. She'd read all my daft posts back then and wanted to 'pay me back' for the entertainment! I STILL don't know who that was. Oh, I went to New York, too, for the day - got lost, wandered about, had a meal in Bleecker Street and gazed at the inside of Grand Central Terminal. Daniel (sadly missed Laker) and I used to chat about going to Asbury Park. He never got the chance - I did it for the both of us.

    Sting at Liberty?

    It would appear that Sting has not been 'confirmed'. Let's hope the Dutch company retreats.
