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...

Re: Missing Fontana Masters

Thank you for this information Bernie. You have worked hard to get this far, so I hope before too long something can be put in hand so that we can enjoy the only music to have been recorded by Ruby that is not available for us to buy on CD created from master tapes.

Re: Anniversary

You are right, John, doesn't time pass so quickly these days.

I think I will spend a few minutes reminiscing, remembering Ruby and listening to the five Christmas songs from the Christmas Tree.

Re: Ruby's grave

Hello Sandy, I am glad it all worked for you in getting on here to post messages. Welcome back, we are always pleased to see postings by our friends - not many of us left now! I know Bernie will comment about the appearance of the stone and how tidy it looks, but I will also add my thanks to you for...

David Frankish RIP

I had a letter today telling me the sad news that David Frankish passed away last weekend. David was for a long time the person running Ruby's fan club, and became a great friend of Ruby and her family. He was a mine of information, and when I first spoke with him on the telephone several years ago,...

Re: Long Awaited Unseen Photos

I have now completed the uploading of the photographs which Bernie obtained a while ago, and which were delayed by some "domestic chores". I have not uploaded those which are already in the library, in order not to increase unnecessarily the storage required to hold all the photographs. I also don't...

Re: Have we seen this?

Hello Mike and welcome to the Ruby Murray website Forum. I am pleased that you were able to follow the instructions and get yourself registered. I am also pleased that my guess about Bernie knowing all about it was right! He is a mine of information about many aspects of show business, not just thos...

Re: 50s Music on BBC

Well I managed to listen to some of the music over the four days - the first thing I discovered was that it wasn't actually on BBC Radio 2 but a temporary DAB and online channel called "BBC Radio 2 50s". I have just scanned through all the lists of music played, and discovered that the only Ruby rec...

Re: Ruby's Birthday Today!

Bernie's password problem was that he was suddenly asked for it on Login and couldn't remember it! :( We have all been there at some time. If you forget your password and keep typing in different ones to try and guess what it was, you get a maximum of 5 attempts. After this, you are locked out and e...

Ruby's Birthday Today!

Just remembering that it would have been Ruby's 81st Birthday today. Sadly she is no longer with us, but we can go on remembering her through this website, thanks to Timmer and the fans who post here, and through the legacy of her lovely recordings.
