* Angela's song refers to an image she found on some obscure blog not far from here. I would publish a link, but I can't find the original post any more. Maybe the originator was in the room and had second thoughts.
** Congratulations to Pam for her instrumental debut using TWO rain-makers!
*** Now, in future, remember this 'shopping list' chorus:
"... me cow, me pig, me sheep, me goat, me stock, me field and barn,
and all the little chickens in the garden."
That repeated word, 'me', is Yorkshire dialect for the possessive pronoun in the first person singular.
