Posted:Short notice I know, but apparently on the 'Paul O'Grady Show' today (thurs 28 April), ITV (that's UK yorkshire TV) at 5.00 pm, there's going to be some 'fire eating'.

Unlikely to be particularly entertaining, but it would be good to know what happens if only from a viewpoint of how the media/public perception of Fire Eating is these days, and, in particular, if there's going to be a sensible safety warning.

I'm going to miss it as I'm out; if anyone does catch this it would be great if they could post a bit about it.

Cheers,

Dave.

Posted:nyc - even though it said uk only on the title, you came in, read it and posted on it anyway.

which is what you would have done if it didn't say 'uk only' in the title.

so exactly how does it make any difference...?

wink hug
