Bader and Noohra Faye Ashton and Byron Beck's final Ceilidh in Kuwait.









Want to hear a story?

Philip (above), bought his raffle ticket because it had the number 42 on it.
He's a great fan of Douglas Adam's "Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy"
where the number 42 turns out to be the silly answer to "life, the universe, and everything"

He won the carpet in the draw with that number and ticket...



Some were having so much fun, they forgot to go home...


Still going strong even when they were moving the tables...
