It wasn't my fault. Lesson 5 instructions were straightforward but Lesson 7 contained a very confusing version of the same instructions.

The whole session was a bit like
The pellet with the poison... the pellet with the poison is in the vessel with the pestle, the chalice from the palace has the true that is brew. Eh... brew that is true- The pellet with the poison's in the vessel with the pestle, the chalice from the palace has the true that is brew. Eh, eh, brew that is true. Eh. The chestle with the pal- eh, eh, palace with the...

I've got it! I've got it. The pellet with the poison's in the vessel with the pestle, the chalice from the palace has the brew that is true, right?


Right. But there's been a change. They broke the chalice from the palace. . . .And replaced it with a flagon . . . With a figure of a dragon . . Flagon with a dragon...

The pellet with the poison's in the flagon with the dragon, the vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true.

No one is much too young to know Danny Kaye!

And thanks for the link, I'll browse later, after all, I have another 4 icon spaces left.

You're much too young to know Danny Kaye - surely?

Second: love the icon.

Thank you - but can't take the credit. Snagged it from here, from buffyx

It sounds as if you've been at the gin bottle!! J.

Don't tell me you've never seen the film.

And Gin's not my tipple - you know that!

Sorry sorry sorry - Pimms then. Obviously Danny Kaye is in the movie but I don't think I know the film - I recall seeing Danny Kaye in a movie where I think he was a band leader, something about pennies, but am sure that this wonderfully clever and funny pistle pestle speech was not in it and then he's been Hans Christian Andersen, hasn't he? - but that's it - if I knew anymore I have forgotten it.

Finally got around to using my brains -looked up Yahoo - it's The Court Jester - will get it out on video - it sounds like a fun movie. J.

Very funny, if somewhat dated film. Danny Kaye is very over-the-top as usual.

Do get it out and enjoy - have lots of popcorn and ice-cream and coca cola ready - it really desrves the works.
