Re: Wikipedia page for Ruby

Thank you Tim, yes as far as I can see they did. One thing that I remember putting in that is not there is a url link to the actual photograph of the three Guinness Book of Records Certificates so that the misleading reference to Madonna that appears elsewhere could hardly be missed. This has for so...

Re: Guinness Book Of World Records

JK (John) has posted an update to the situation regarding Ruby and the Guinness Book of Records in another thread, so I have taken the opportunity to repost it here, so that it can be kept in context with all the other postings on this thread. As far as we are concerned, never mind Ed Sheeran and el...

Re: 2020 - The Sapphire Anniversary Year

Hello John, it is good to see you are still able to join us in posting a message - keep up the good work on your health! I am pleased you like the home page.

Re: 2020 - The Sapphire Anniversary Year

Hello Graham, it is good to hear from you and to know that you are still enjoying things on this website. I too wonder where the years have gone - I think we must be both celebrating a quite big birthday around this year.....I too was 14 when I first heard Ruby, and like thousands of other young men...

2020 - The Sapphire Anniversary Year

It is my understanding that the 65th Anniversary of something is recognised by Sapphire stones, which exhibit a gorgeous blue colour. So as this anniversary for the year of Ruby's triumph in March 1955 will be with us soon, I have updated the home page to include lots of sapphires. It also gives me ...

2019 and another year has passed!

After a few hectic weeks here at home, I have finally had a moment to bring back the Christmas Page with the five lovely Christmas songs recorded by Ruby - it is a pity they never play any of them in the shops! I was prompted to get it done by the realisation that tomorrow will be the anniversary of...

Re: Ruby and the Duke

I have been a bit busy recently and only just caught up with this thread. I also remember the film as having more music by Duke Special than by Ruby, but then I suppose he was in a privileged position because he was creating it. At least it gave some more publicity to Ruby especially in Northern Ire...

Wikipedia page for Ruby

I have finally got round to doing something I have been promising myself to do for a long time! I have made a number of edits to the Wikipedia page on Ruby. For example it used to read that "Ruby was born on the Donegall Road" so I have changed that to "near the Donegall Road". Other wrong informati...

The New Blue Plaque and the play Ruby!

On Friday 15th February 2019 I visited Belfast to represent the UK Ruby fans at these two special events. After years of pressure and effort by Bernie and Michael Cameron, the Ulster History Circle managed to secure funding from the Belfast City Council to erect a Blue Plaque in remembrance of the a...
