Hi Dizzyhope you've caught up with your sleep - some people say that Joni Mitchel had something to do with the Tower being saved for the moment at least.

 

http://www.wordmagazine.co.uk/content/joni-mitchell-saves-northern-towns-historic-water-tower :lol: :lol:

 

But either way here is a link to her playing Bige Yellow Taxi for Joni fans like me. :rolleyes:

 

Nice one Geoff and I think Warrington may have a new 'anthem' if it isn't careful :wink::D

 

Cracking song and one that I've not heard in years and you've just had me singing my head off to that :oops::lol: (sons not too impressed so I found some other versions.. should be singing too soon if I wack the volume up)

 

'Jon# and he counterpart really might have started somrthing there and I can just imagine the crowds gathering on the Town Hall lawns armed with guitars and all singing in unison in the future. :wink: I cant play it by the way so can anyone sing. :lol:

 

Not probably your taste but there have been quite a few cover versions too in all sorts of sytles.

Like it or not this tower defines our skyline as much as any other object. I think it is great if it can be saved, restored and incorporated into a worthwhile and pleasing development which enhances the town centre. To crush it for hardcore to build a car park is a disgrace.

It could be used to incarcerate anyone who threatens our heritage!

TO THE TOWER! :lol::lol::lol:

That iron body frame that was in the museum could come in handy too! Judge Jeffries' type of justice resurrected! might make a good tourist attraction! A quid a go to wind the rack! What do you think?

Nice one PJ I might use it for a study next term in art - two tone blue Gouache springs to mind at the moment with a hint of Christmas. B) or I might be eating porridge if certainly people in this Town have their way. :|
