Liver Birds' Birthday Bash
I'm whistling the theme song to television's eponymous series about two women in Liverpool whilst simultaneously watching the 3D Macula Spectacular celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the Royal Liver Building.
Whislt I was never as fan of the Liver Birds TV series in the 1970s, I am a huge fan of the iconic structure which dominates Liverpool's waterfront and could easily be termed one of the most recognisable buildings in the world. The most celebrated of the Three Graces, its famous Birds, part-phoenix, part-vulture, part-myth are beloved of all Scousers and have been celebrated in song, verse and stories in the one hundred years since it was constructed.
The weekend's jamboree attracted thousands of visitors and was a a fitting celebration.
