Grabbed! A record company name, spelled correctly, Capitol! Sorry about the shitty picture, I can't figure out what happened.....

Capitol Pub



And now the new tag, staying on a theme....

The name of an album, like this

Abbey Road.


But you can do any album, by any artist, but the WHOLE album title must be present....

like;
A Quiet Normal Life
Spirit
Voices in the Sky
Ropin the Wind
Bellavia
The Grand Tour
Milk Cow Blues
Ridin with the King
Moondance
Dreamland
Steel Wheels
Breathe
Pilgrim
Closer


Serious BONUS POINTS for something like "Their Satanic Majesties Request, or Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, or Sounds Like Teen Spirit, or Beethovin Symphony #5..


Anyway, have at it!

We've got a Penny Lane, but it's only a single and the nearest Strawberry fields (the flip side) are probably 50 miles away and out of season...

In 1976, this man, who in this photo reminds me of Peter Sellers in "Dr Strangelove", was our history teacher:


He was one of those easily distracted teachers who could be relied upon for an interesting chat instead of a boring lesson, if you could just get him started.

On one occasion, discussion turned to who might be the next Prime Minister of Australia. Bear in mind that at this stage, Malcolm Fraser of the Liberal party (Australia's dominant party of the right) had recently replaced Gough Whitlam under "interesting" circumstances (that are still discussed in the news today!) and looked very secure for the foreseeable future. Someone proposed the leader of the Australian Council of Trade Unions, the ACTU, a charismatic but flawed personality called Bob Hawke. This rather preposterous suggestion was actually taken seriously and we were treated to a long and entirely reasonable discussion of why Bob Hawke (who wasn't even a politician) would never be Prime Minister.

Seven years later Malcolm Fraser lost office to Bob Hawke. And this ordinary suburban house is where Bob Hawke was living at the time of the 1983 election:



The tag is the past or present home of a past or present head of a government (the Prime Minister is not head of state).

In Australia, we have three levels of government, national, states and local councils; obviously different countries have different arrangements. I'd really rather see the home of someone there's a half a chance we've heard of in the world at large, in American terms a President or State Governor rather than a village mayor; but if it proves too difficult and drags on, then there's some wiggle room there.

Here are a couple more links for those interested in reading more:

I find coming up with good new tags that aren't trivial and aren't too hard quite difficult. A couple of my personal guidelines are that it shouldn't just be a matter of googling the tag term or looking in the Yellow Pages to find one nearby, and that, having once lived in Cincinnati for just a few months, I should be confident I'd have a fair chance of finding a match somewhere around there.

When I came up with this one, I was worried it might be too difficult, but I know of the childhood home of a past US President located about 100 miles south-southwest of you in Georgetown. I don't think it would be sporting to be any more specific, but I'd be delighted if you got it.

By the way, the tomb of another President is on the southern outskirts of Cincinnati too, yet none of the locals seem to know about it!.

The grandson of the other President Harrison, who's tomb is at North Bend, on the Ohio river on the western outskirts of Cincinnati, great tag!

The other president I was referring to earlier was Ulysses S Grant, who grew up in Georgetown, east of Cincinnati and south of Columbus and Hilliard.

I think, if he is "hero" enough to have a statue erected for his honor, he is hero enough for the tag.....
