I mean to try that one sometime.
My favourite, also for a long set is 'Waves of the Sea' - my super-simplified
Waves of Tory. Lines forward & back twice, cast and lead up the middle, dip and dive
(for as long as I feel like) till I say Swing. Random progression - which is how Waves of
Tory often ends up. Takes a while to teach the dip and dive but they enjoy having 'got
it'. Unphrased but if you call the last Swing near the end of a tune you and the band
can finish together.

The origin of Blobs is lost in the mists of time, but I do know that I started calling
it in the early 90's after meeting John Krumm, so the idea is likely his. The title
'Blobs', however, sounds like it might have emerged from my brain. I take great
pleasure in crying out: 'Look out! Here comes the blob!'
Ridge - it sounds like you need to attend Pourparler, where you will meet a gang of
people each with a list as long as your arm of the kind of dances you are looking for.
Pourparler 2018 will be in San Antonio, Nov 1-4.
