.....was very funny on HIGNFY,tonight....Laughing

I don't think it was a coincidence that Paul was much more animated than I have seen him in a long time.

Don't often catch the longer version of HIGNFY but will watch this one if I have the time....

Becky, thanks for the tip-off. I prefer the "more" edition and look forward to it.

A friend of mine recently attended a recording of the show and mentioned that the recording took more than 1 hour 30 mins to get in the can due to the amount of tomfoolery and digression that goes on! How on earth they manage a fast-turnaround edit down to 30 mins and 40 mins respectively is anybody's guess!!

I once went to a recording of "I'm Sorry, I Haven't A Clue". It took nearly three hours to produce two half hour programmes. Mind you, that would have had to edit out all the time the audience was in hysterics

Laughing No big deal Becky.. my wife and I went to a "cutting horse" show north of Los Angeles where William Shatner was taking part.. I was like a big kid seeing him for real and hearing his voice as I loved Star Trek!
Between events, he sat under a canopy on his tent with a great little dog by his side and stood a few feet away from me several times.
He smiled a few times as I must have looked a right burk with a three foot grin on my face Embarassed
I would love to have spoken to him but didn't have the nerve!

Don't know about that,Santa ...not all of us can say we have been in the company of the lord (as he will henceforth be known) of HIGNFY. Very Happy

Pity you couldn't pluck up the courage to speak to him.....but I'm sure most of us would have been just the same if we found ourselves face to face with a hero of ours from the TV ...we just need to know what a 'cutting horse' show is now. Wink

Ye Gods. He's standing near to Captain James T. Kirk and he says's it's no big deal. I find that highly illogical. I'd be a jibbering wreck

Makes me wonder what Santa would think was a big deal Laughing

SantaFe - I'm surprised that nobody has recommended the ideal solution. Just get out your SmartPhone, contact Scotty up on the Enterprise, and ask him to beam you up - from where Scotty can then beam you back down to Captain Kirk. Within seconds you'll have materialised right alongside him wherever he is. Simples.

Laughing Laughing Becks, Mrs SF owns an American Quarter Horse and loves to compete and ride "western style" over here. When we go on holiday to the US, she has to put up with trains Razz whilst I have to endure boring horse shows! Sad
A "Cutting Horse" is basically a cowboy's horse which is particularly skilled at being shown a single cow in a herd and going on to separate out that cow from the rest of the herd by countering every move the cow makes to rejoin it's mates. I'm not interested in horses but I must admit to being fascinated how the horse "beads in" on the cow and blocks it's path without guidance from the rider.

Bill Shatner competes in "Reigning" which requires a strict pattern of riding and manoeuvring skills with one hand... the other always free for a cowboy's rope.
Yes, I was thrilled to see one of my heroes and would love to have spoken to him but whilst one trade vendor said " Yes, go speak with him, he'd love it" another commented "Bill loves his riding time and may not appreciate being approached at an event" so I chose not to.
It was great to hear him speak,
even though.. he,- didn't...... speak,.... in,- broken...... sentences ( that was my best Jim Kirk impression! Laughing )

Colin, great idea but, I don't have a Smartphone... Sad
I am thinking of getting the phone version of my Apple iPod however.. an electrician showed me his the other day and, amongst other things, I was dumbfounded to see that he could control a public access Video Camera in San Francsco from his phone!!! Shocked
It's got to be alien technology Confused

Right...kinda like an American version of One Man And His Dog, then.....Laughing

And on the orginal point, I thought William Shatner was indeed very funny on HIGNFY. I'd love to have been in that studio audience - I bet the recording went on for ages!
