Words Fail Me Podcast 18 - June 2011

[Download Here]


Almost up to date again! Our dictionary adventures this month take us into the letter K, with a page chosen by someone who is practically royalty, Lady Elizabeth Anson, a cousin of the queen and party planner extraordinaire. In fact Lady Elizabeth was the very first party planner, long before it was fashionable! She chats to Dave about surprise parties, the most important elements of a gathering and how she got into the business by falling down some stairs.

This particular page of the dictionary sparks discussions about beer, bingo, mango and the Middle East. Dave is convinced that Neil has just lost all the subscribers when he conversationally starts not liking certain things... download here to find out more!


Show Notes...

Pictured above is an example of Kente Cloth from Ghana.

The 4 beloved beers mentioned by Neil were: Otter Ale (Devon), Rebellion Brewery (Marlow), Chiltern Brewery (Near Aylesbury), London Pride (Fullers)
Is a crate on the way?

More about Keno on Wikipedia. Seems like it is bingo with betting.

We sponsor some socks at Wimbledon AFC and a man (Corey Collymore) at Middlesex County Cricket Club.

Michelmores Charity run took place earlier this month, reports can be found here.
