    No mention here of the Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy,
    most remiss.

    Early days recollected here.

    I was pretty sure she had been mentioned somewhere but was not sure in what context it had been. In retrospect i should have done a ^Search.

    To be quite frank i dredged it up to point people to the poem i labouriously typed out after having read the poem in a, what's it called now, ah yes, book. I did try and do a copy/paste job on account of a) being fantastically slow at typing, and b) it being an enormously long piece of work - all to no avail seeing as nobody else, it would appear, could be arsed to 'put it out there'.

    I felt quite sure that many people would enjoy reading it, yet suspected that many more would think 'not another f***ing poem' and miss it, which i thought would be a shame.

    If you know what i mean.

    Famous and celebrity are surely two different beasts

    Izaak Walton a celeb?

    It seems quite possible to be famous but not be a celebrity. However, is the converse possible? Or is 'celebrity' a sub-set of 'famous'?.

    So that would be famous

    As most of us probably wouldnt recognise him in the street does that relieve him of celebrity status?
