I've been thinking of starting this topic for a while.  Let's see how it goes....

Asked if he was in charge of the nation, in the absence of the Prime Minister -
Mr Clegg told Metro: ‘Yeah, I suppose I am. I forgot about that.

Neither Bodge, the pub is about 4miles from barlick on the "top road" out of town. Just a spit from Blacko. It stands on a medieval cross roads. Gaits here means path or road.

That may answer  a question, i lived nr Hepworth in Yorkshire, and on the Sheffield /Huddersfield road there is a T junction and  where it intersects it is called Gatehead, i always though it was a mining term from the old pit that was there , i now think it could be your Gait ?

Grandpa Fairoak  (that's what I always called him)  was sometimes known to be a bit wobbly on the way home , though !

Almost certainly the end of the road.

From the Guardian ref last night's small eathquake in Blackpool -
"Several householders called police at around 3.30am to report that they had felt the ground shaking. Some thought it was an April Fool's prank".

Gait, or gaits, or gates is used in many parts of the Dales in connection with the number of sheep a farmer is allowed to graze on certain moors or common lands..

Its usage is seen sometime in adverts such as "XYZ Farm to sell. 100 acres of meadow and grazing, and with 50 gaits on  wibblewobble moor". A Gait is four sheep (in upper Rbblesdale). I am not sure whether or not the number is a local thing.

Not so many years ago the Commissioners in charge of Commons sorted out the gaits on Weets. They are still alive and well and the rights are incorporated in the deeds of the farms who have the rights.

There was something on the radio this morning about the need to "get more people interested in classical music". This brought to my mind the saying "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you feed him for life". We need to help children grow up with an open, curious mind, trying new things and being willing to accept the unfamiliar. That way we give them access to lots of different things rather than just how to appreciate classical music.

A young friend once asked me how I knew so much about different subjects and I said that I had never specialised in one job and was insatiably curious. I once had a conversation with Asa Briggs about this and he said we educated kids not to observe, just to learn by rote. His example was to ask someone to draw the lamp post outside their house, he reckoned most people had no idea what it looked like.

Apologies for lowering the tone, but this made me laugh from tonight's episode of Benidorm:

"If I had a dog with a face like yours, I'd shave its arse and teach it to walk backwards."
