Blog Title

I`m still thinking about a blog title for when I move. At lunch today with seven other clerics I mentioned this. No sooner had I said it than one of the brethren, the Reverend Bunce, came up with `Gateshead Revisited`. Rather good I thought!

A Google search reveals Gateshead Revisited has been used many times but I can`t find a link wih a Catholic connection so I think it is still a good idea.

Gateshead was "visited" by Cholera in 1832 and again in 1852/3.
That was actually the expression used at the time!

Incidentally, the 1852 outbreak was blamed, by the Presbyterian Minister, on the wicked, drunken way of life of the natives.

The suggestion of Gateshead Revisited struck a chord with me because I am a great fan of Northumbrian/Tyneside music, and especially the High Level Ranters. One of their albums is named – Gateshead Revisited. And it includes a most appropriate tune (jig) named – The Squire of Bensham.

In the 19th century Bensham was a fashionable suburb of Gateshead. The name Bensham is thought to have derived from the Saxon ‘beornic’s ham’ or homestead. You will be pleased to know that you are returning to a fashionable suburb of Gateshead.

Go for it; it's very good.

Dubliner and Rubber Ball thanks for your suggestions. I still like the Rev Bunce`s suggsetion best. LD I never thoughht to see `fashionable ` and `Gateshead` in the same sentence!Might have to look up the High Level Ranters album!

A couple of further suggestions: 'Deep South' or 'Southern Murmurs'.

As you have been moving backwards and forwards across the river (or over the water, as some say) why not something along the lines of Tyne Traveller.
