WHEN I'M GONE

When I come to the end of my journey
And I travel my last weary mile,
Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned
And remember only the smile.

Forget unkind words I have spoken;
Remember some good I have done.
Forget that I ever had heartache
And remember I've had loads of fun.

Forget that I've stumbled and blundered
And sometimes fell by the way.
Remember I have fought some hard battles
And won, ere the close of the day.

Then forget to grieve for my going,
I would not have you sad for a day,
But in summer just gather some flowers
And remember the place where I lay,

And come in the shade of evening
When the sun paints the sky in the west
Stand for a few moments beside me
And remember only my best.


RIP BOBBY GLOVER & JOE HANLON

Robert Burns. Picture: Complimentary

Robert Burns.

 

"PRAISING what is lost, makes the remembrance dear," declared William Shakespeare - but it may be a Scot who eventually helps England's best-known bard have a national day named in his honour.

 

John Reid, widely tipped to be planning a bid to become prime minister, has given his support to proposals for a National Shakespeare Day in England, which he hopes will rival the popularity of Burns Night in his home country.

 

One possible feature of the celebration could be ox roasts at venues around the country - inspired by the haggis-based Burns suppers.

The commemoration would be held on 23 April, the commonly accepted day of Shakespeare's birth in 1564 and also the date he died in 1616. It is also the date on which St George, the patron saint of England, is celebrated.

The day could also include special performances of Shakespeare's plays as well as readings from his dramas and poems. A popular selection would probably be the Bard's paean to Englishness in Richard II: "This other Eden, demi-paradise...

This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England."

Mr Reid has told colleagues that he "cannot understand" why there is no equivalent to Burns Night in England, especially given the centrality of Shakespeare's Englishness to his body of work.

However, the proposal may be seen by some cynics as an attempt by Mr Reid to endear himself to English voters.

Recent polls have suggested many in England oppose the idea of a Scots PM and Gordon Brown, the favourite to replace Tony Blair, has made a number of moves to highlight his pro-English stance - including the declaration that his favourite goal was Paul Gascoine's for England against Scotland in Euro96.

Tessa Jowell, the Culture Secretary, who is also backing the idea, said:

"Shakespeare is one of England's towering literary figures and anything that celebrates his life and work should be encouraged."

David Smith, a former president of the Burns Federation, said "Bard suppers" would prove popular among English people living in Scotland.

He said: " There are plenty of English in Scotland who would be happy to take it on. It's unlikely that native-born Scots would take Shakespeare to their hearts, however."

Last week, MSPs at Holyrood backed a move to mark St Andrew's Day a national holiday in Scotland.

The SNP MSP Michael Matheson said National Shakespeare Day should be confined to England.

"I think this is a great idea. But if [MPs think] they can create a national Shakespeare day and enforce it in Scotland, they are mistaken," he said.

Hope to see you all on Monday, hope I'm on time, travelling over from edinburgh is a bit of a drag, getting the train so as I dont get stuck on the M8, anybody else travelling over from Edinburgh?

 

 the main area of concentration we should all focus on is how far the forensics and patholigists looked into the murders of joe and bobby, i for one would like to see this particular murder investigation re-opened.

It just seems to have been opened and shut in a few days.Wouldd like to see the file on this case to see how thoroughly they examined the murder scene etc.

This is a case that will never be reopened nor investigated as the police had both men under surveillance at the time and had allegedly lost them during the time both were killed......as for justice? There was none and the families expected it although their friends did not.

 

The Poem is self explanatory if you read it carefully as Paul is still grieving over this and so are both families.......Justice will no doubt take care of itself in one form or other.

His eyes begin to close as the fears rumble to the heart.
He knows death has pranced into the room for the reason of the kiss.
He hears the moon calling as the ocean whispers his name.
Tam McGraw lays there,
His hand slowly begin to grow cold.
He is torn if he should go with them or not into the deep night sky.
He decides to stop fighting them for he knows they will not leave without him.
Hearing the calling of others betrayed over and over again,
He cant rest his head with ease,
As he dances into the calling of the moon,
And the ocean's soft whispers,

McGraw's gone too soon.
 
McGraw was pronounced dead today @ approx 3.00PM (GMT)
