Meeting with Bernie

Today I spent a very pleasant day with Bernie, who is continuing to bear up under the strain of pain from his knees. His first knee, which has already been operated upon, is not yet free from pain, and his second knee is awaiting an appointment to get fixed. As Bernie said, it is a long wait for som...

The Meeting of the Waters

This has always been a favourite of mine and Ruby sings it not only very sweetly with lots of emotion for the lovely countryside, but meets the challenge of it changing key upwards several times without any hesitation. Well, I have just watched a BBC recording I made of Michal Portillo making a trai...

Re: New home page

Thank you Timmer and Bernie for your kind words. This is one of my own favourites which I used for the Diamond Anniversary Year of 2015, so it was a pleasure to get it out again and change a few things to make it relevant to today. Interestingly for me, the Heartbeat record and picture did not appea...

Re: Ruby... My Precious Gem

Hello Bernie, the Christmas Page was designed quite a few years ago, and of course included a link to enable people to purchase your book should they so wish to. Today, the link is still there, and results in an email being sent to your email address with some words in the title saying it is an enqu...

Re: youtube

Hello Martin, welcome back. The song is in our own Library, and came from one of the tape recordings which David Frankish had made when Ruby appeared in Great Yarmouth for a summer season. She made it in the local radio studio and David captured it. A few years ago he gave me his tape recordings, an...

OK technical problems all sorted, and now the video of this year's visit to Torquay Crematorium is in the Library for all to see.

Re: MEETING WITH RUBY MURRAY

May I welcome you to the site here, Fred, it is a pleasure to see a new name posting in this message forum. This website was started in 1999, and like you I stumbled across it quite by chance - I have been a member ever since! I was also invited by the founder of the website, Tim who we know as Timm...

Re: The Humour Is on Me Now

Just a reminder if you need it Bernie, that the Dublin concert is featured on the Anthology CD collection, so you could listen to it there if Ruby sang it. Of course if it was one of the other singers who "lilted" then it won't be on the CD. I know because I chose Ruby's songs for this collection as...

Re: The Humour Is on Me Now

Hello Timmer and Bernie, "The Humour Is On Me Now" As we all know humour is classed as funny but in the case of the song it means a state of the mind or mood and the song indicates that Ruby is now ready to take a husband. I have never heard your saying before Bernie but love it. Take Care Graham I...

Re: Teresa Hart - Timmer's mother

Thanks, Graham! I'm more than a little jealous you discovered Ruby so early in her career. :) Thanks to the website, I once met a special Ruby fan in person over coffee while she was visiting the United States. She brought her Ruby scrapbook along (photographs and newspaper clippings) and shared it...

Re: Site update

Hi Tim, I am getting a notice today, Tuesday 18th April 2017 which tells me that this site has a Certificate Error. I don't remember getting this all weekend, so perhaps something has changed since then. It only lets me access this site against the Certificate Error recommendation.

Teresa Hart - Timmer's mother

Quite a few years ago Teresa joined this forum, and although she never posted anything she contacted me to say how much she enjoyed reading the posts of others here. Then a bit later on she saw me on Facebook, put two and two together and asked me to be her friend. I gladly confirmed the request and...

Re: Ruby's grave

Hello and welcome back Timmer! Well the test has certainly worked. This is a feature that some of us have used from time to time, to bring a particular picture to everyone's attention, so it is good to see that it is still there in the new version of the phpBB software. For those not on the Administ...
