1st Anniversary 30.11.04

What could be a better birthday celebration than sitting in London working with pictures and text from the The Fan Club Convention 2004. This evening we are going to see the "Waterloo Sunset" and the lightning ceremony on Trafalgar Square. The Christmas Tree is an annual gift from Oslo to London - because of Britain's help to Norway during the Second World War.

Ray at the Boston Arms?
Rumors say that Ray may show up on the 40th aniversary Kinks celebration of the Official kinks Fan Club at The Boston Arms today.

At the pre-party at the Clissold arms yesterday, nobody ruled out the possibility that Ray would show up.

There was argued that if he wanted to repeat his successful show-up at the first convention, it had to be now.

Representatives of the dutch delegation say that they take it for granted that Ray will be with us this evening.

- I can't imagine he won't be there, says one.

This will be a perfect pre-party for the greatest (sold-out) Kinks 40 years celebration at the Boston Arms ever!
