Happy Birthday Eamonn Holmes

It’s a birthday celebration so I’ll start the birthday cheers
For a chap whose career in journalism spans over 30 years.
I’m not sure that there is a channel on which he hasn’t been sighted
And I can also tell you he worships at the altar of Manchester United.

He’s the loveable Irish gentleman, who is with us as day is dawning;
He’s the star of Sunrise on Sky News and a regular on This Morning.
He’s versatile and he’s credible and that really is the truth
And he makes an even better team with his glamorous & lovely wife Ruth.

I’m sure that you’ve now gathered which father of four we’re talking about.
He’s has one the most recognized faces and voices; of that there is no doubt.
Yes, it’s Eamonn Holmes birthday, which falls on the 3rd of December;
A date that he shares with my daughter so I can never fail to remember!

So happy birthday Eamonn, on this snowy and wintery day.
I hope that your celebrations will be full of fun in every way!
May the year ahead bring you all that you wish and more;
Enjoy your special day, as after all, that’s what it’s for!

My Lake District Snow View

Here’s a little something that I’d like to share with you
And that is a photograph of my Lake District snow view.
The hills have been dusted and the hedges are white
Combined to give us the most spectacular sight!

Ode To Leslie Nielsen

When it comes to straight faced comedy, you’d be pushed to find finer
Than the late Leslie Nielsen; the master of classic one-liners.

Born in February 1926, he sadly died yesterday
But he leaves us with the characters he so fabulously portrayed.

A veteran comic actor, he was aged 84
He started out acting seriously but gave us all so much more.

Surely we can’t be serious, but sadly we are;
We won’t call you Shirley, but simply a star!

Deadpan delivery that was timed to a tee
Saw Nielsen transition to the big screen from TV!

So adieu to the actor best known for Airline and The Naked Gun;
The legendary Leslie Nielsen will be remembered by everyone.

X Factor Live Results Show Wagner Leaves

The first four acts safe in tonight’s X Factor Selection
Are Rebecca, Matt, Cher, and the boy group One Direction.
Then without a moments pause, the bottom group equal three
And Katie Waissel was evicted – her winning was not to be.

Now it’s Wagner and Mary who will sing for their fate;
Wagner sings ‘Unforgettable’, which as a choice, I think is great.
Mary gave us ‘My Life’ as it eventually came to her turn
For her it was a victory, so the act through is Mary Byrne.

X Factor Live Results Show Week 6

X Factor Live Results Show Week 6

Katie Waissel, One Direction and Rebecca Ferguson are declared safe
Matt Cardle, Mary and Wagner are all also guaranteed a place.
This leaves Paije and Cher Lloyd, to face the bottom two this week;
Will one of these two favourites will be the one the judges keep?

Simon Cowell and Cheryl both voted to send home Paije
But Dannii Minogue, as his mentor, voted to keep him on the stage.
Louis Walsh could have skipped the decision and sent it to deadlock
But instead chose to send Paije home, and his little face dropped in shock.

X Factor Live Show Week 6

X Factor Live Show Week 6

It’s Saturday Night, and our regular X Factor treat;
The theme for the contestants is ‘The Beatles’ this week.
Matt Cardle kicked us off, what a fab way to begin
Followed by Cher Lloyd and her rendition of Imagine.

Simon Cowell was not impressed that she’d sang sitting on some stairs
But with Cheryl Cole as her mentor, that didn’t seem to faze Cher.
Simon then introduced to us, his one remaining selection
And ‘All We Need Is Love’ was blasted out by One Direction.

Louis was heard above the crowd, to say they’d raised their game
But Danni was a little less complimentary, defeaned by fans screaming their name.
Even the boys themselves, were struggling to hear the comments that they had
So Dermot read out their number, and we broke for another ad.

Rebecca Ferguson gave us ‘Yesterday’ when it came to her turn
And she was followed by ‘Something’ from the Irish diva, Mary Byrne.
It is a night for big songs, I am sure you’ll agree
And Paije Richardson owned the stage as he gave us ‘Let It Be’.

Wagner was up next to grace the X Factor live show stage
But when it came to his comments, he provoked a bit of Cheryl rage.
He’d been quoted in the papers, talking of her past, as he confessed
But the story had been slightly twisted; he said ‘Don’t believe what you read in the press!’

The final act this Saturday night, gave us ‘Help’ as her prayer
And she’s also undgone a radical change, removing and colouring her hair.
Pixie like, Katie Waissel’s arragement was powerful to say the least
But will it be enough to see her through safely until next week.
