This could be a problem:

Note who sang it...

Well, it means dove in Spanish but also pigeon. There's the reference of Picasso's daughter but it reminds me more of the spotty faced pebbleglasses wearing whore who lived down the street from us...sorry

the jimmy saville + bird footage + jonathan king combination is jarring.

It's really beautiful.

nowt wrong with pigeons.

Pigeons = rats with wings wink.

She would always be listening to renditions of "una paloma blanca".

notsoteenagemum Mon 10-Aug-09 09:48:33

No, it is a horses name. Apologies.

nancy75 Mon 10-Aug-09 09:53:56

isnt the horse a palamino?

MamaKaty Mon 10-Aug-09 09:57:44

Sorry, I don't like it at all - and wouldn't it end up being shorted to 'Pal'(like the dogfood!)

MaggieBelleVirgo Mon 10-Aug-09 10:03:12

I really love it.

MamaLazarou Mon 10-Aug-09 10:54:14

The more I think of it, the more I like it. DH likes it, too. I think I'm going to steal it!

notsoteenagemum Mon 10-Aug-09 11:36:06

Yes, there is a breed of Horse called Palamino, but have still known a few named Paloma.

blinks Mon 10-Aug-09 11:43:38

tis all yours MmeLazarou.

i'm all done- just liked it.

blinks Mon 10-Aug-09 11:49:22

i was thinking it could be shortened to 'Loma'.

i doubt any of her contemporaries would have heard of some shitty 70s record.

I think that's lovely.

But Loma sounds like 'lomo', and then I'm thinking slices of ham.

MamaLazarou Mon 10-Aug-09 12:15:09

Thank you, blinks.

'Loma' would be a lovely nickname.

goomum Mon 10-Aug-09 15:25:05

reminds me of a tumorous growth. Sorry.

MorrisZapp Mon 10-Aug-09 17:06:53

sorry, makes me think of papilloma

blinks Mon 10-Aug-09 18:09:21
