The audience was treated to a very interesting speech on the preparations required for a ‘new arrival’ but the arrival was not a baby, as might have been expected but ……. A dog!!!
John Entwistle –
John talked about various elements of internal and external decorating and how to avoid potential ‘marital’ disharmony.
David Knox –
This speech was about the decoration of a ‘landmark’ that had not been painted for a very long time and needed to have a great deal of preparatory work carried out before this high, well known example could be painted a single colour of sky blue …. The Sistine Chapel Ceiling.
Eddy Jackson had a completely different approach to the subject of ‘landmarks’ and put forward the suggestion that this word could be treated not only as a noun but also as a verb.
Carol Kershaw talked about adverts and how things had changed from the 1940’s and 50’s very few goods available. Carol made reference to several adverts which included, but not restricted to, the Guinness advert with the multi coloured toucan.
