I just about peed myself laughing while listening to the public service announcement. The description of shooting out at various angles had me rolling.
I understand the fact that you are serious about the subject of male bathroom habits and while it's true men are pigs and totally self-centred concerning their ablutions (ya like that word?), I couldn't help chuckling through my lunch about the manner of delivery.
Thanks and Happy New Year.

Your comments on Pink Floyd are not wasted words, I completely relate to the depth of feeling concerning them as a band, as individuals and the music they made.
They took us to some interesting places and through decades of wildly interesting times to be sure.

During my Christmas time off I spent an evening or two watching David Gilmour's DVD "Live At Albert Hall" and the excellent bonus features disc which was made about a year before Richard Wright passed away.

During the tour for the "On An Island" CD David Gilmour was effusive about his love and respect for Richard Wright and featured him by sharing the spotlight on many occasions.
Watching them together for the last time brought many bittersweet tears to my cheeks.
My grown kids just look at me like I'm a crazy old man, but at their age, how could they possibly understand?

On a side note:
The song "Grantchester Meadows" did appear on side one, of the studio LP of the 1969 release of Ummagumma as you stated.

Thanks Bunky - your comments much appreciated! My friend Barnacle Bill picked up Umma Gumma in Vancouver, new, for $12- I've asked him to get me a copy, as my vinyl is a bit scratched up.

Another favourite of mine is the soundtrack from the movie More - it seems forgotten today - movie & album. I'll never forget seeing them perform, mostly from Dark Side of the Moon, at the University of Montreal, way back then - wow! That, and the Stones playing the Montreal Forum around 66. A long lifetime ago...
