Today Liverpool begins it's celebrations in the year it is European Capital of Culture. Ringo Starr will be singing (or swinging - no not that kind) on the roof of St Georges Hall. It is being televised on Sunday I believe...
Think of Liverpool and you'll think of football, the Beatles, the ferries, the Liver Birds (as seen in this picture of The Royal Liver Building by Dave Wood which can be seen with more at this site)People are what make a place, this city has many brilliant people who have helped make it what it is...as a poet from these shores once said...
'Lippy loose-limbed liberatingly lyrical
Irreverent inspired je ne sais quoi
Vibrant Visionary with a capital V
Edgy eccentric essentially europhile
Racy restless raw rock 'n' roller
Pacy passionate positively pop
Obsessive optimistic on the go
Off the wall outlandish ee aye addio
Legendary life-giving life- loving Liverpool'
