There is a terrific movie based on the life of
Bill Wilson called "My Name is Bill W.", starring
JoBeth Williams, James Woods and James Garner.
Probably about 20+ years old now. In one scene
it shows Bill in a bar/pub drunk as a skunk and the
whole place is engaged in a very drunken rendition
of "Barney Google", a favorite song of the era.

Thank you, jj.
And, Luke, I don't know that film - I shall ask our local cinema manager to consider it for 2013.


And the next two words are:
(Ta Da!!)

I can get copies, and would be glad to mail one to you,
if it is not available to you. It is very well done
and would be more than happy to do so. You could PM an
address.

Sweet Cicele D. Demille from Mobile
Proud paragon of the Christian ideal
Drank some wine one day
Took a roll in the hay
Then married an idolater from Brazil

Some folk, with great gusto, go rambling;
Some, guidebook in hand, prefer ambling;
But the really cool guys
Eschew exercise
And spend all their leisure time gambling.

SUBJECT SUBMERGE

Masochism, anyone? Necrophilism? Bestiality? NO? - I see I'm flogging a dead horse, here.

Why subject yourself to great pain,
When far better options remain.
The masochistic urge
You should try to submerge
And strive to be joyful again!

Good Catholics love the saints dearly
And honour their martyrdom yearly,
But the atheist view
Is that Scripture's untrue,
So religion's a masquerade, really.
