Certain shenanigans surrounding aircraft carriers, this week, put me in a nautical kind of mood. So I bunged a load of songs on that theme together in a video format and uploaded 'em onto YouTube. And here, Gentle Reader, is the result. Thirty-three songs of a nautical bent. About half of them are the rockabilly most long-time readers have probably learned to expect from me, but the other half… Well, there's the Spinners, the Toy Dolls, the Andrews Sisters and the Band Of Her Majesty's Royal Marines, to name but a few.

By having a scapegoat nailed to a tree?
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
As many a wit has told me over the years, my birthday being on the first day of April means that I must be a fool. Ho ho. As you might imagine, Gentle Reader, constant repetition by people who never stopped to think that I just might have heard it a few hundred times before has made the "joke" something of a sore point.
