Hallelujah! (Holly Johnson song)

"Hallelujah" is a promotional single from former Frankie Goes to Hollywood singer Holly Johnson, from his 1999 album Soulstream. The single was released as two different 12" vinyl releases, where the first was subtitled "The First Cut Is the Deepest..." and the second subtitled "The Second Cut is the Neatest...". Both releases featured the same artwork. Additionally, the song's title is sometimes written with an exclamation mark to read "Hallelujah!". It reached the top ten in top fifteen in their Pop Tip chart; the song was written by Nick Bagnall. 12" Promo Single #1"Hallelujah!" - 6:52 "Hallelujah!" - 6:17 "Hallelujah!" - 6:1712" Promo Single #2"Hallelujah!" - 7:10 "Hallelujah!" - 4:21 "Hallelujah!" - 6:17 "Hallelujah!" - 6:52 Jon O'Brien of Allmusic spoke of the song in a review of the Soulstream album, stating "The retro stylings are more forgivable when Johnson's distinctive, powerful vocals and life-affirming lyrics are let loose on the dancefloor, with the infectious camp Euro-disco of "Hallelujah" and "Disco Heaven"."Upon release of the Soulstream album, a review by The Guardian wrote "The hedonism of the Frankie years now just a glitzy memory, his new philosophy runs something like: "Radiate light, love power, set free your soul."

That's from Hallelujah!, whose rather pat optimism resurfaces on The Best Invention and All U Need is Love. The message would resound more profoundly if it were accompanied by some decent tunes, rather than colourless beats-by-the-yard that do nothing for Johnson's reedy voice." "Hallelujah!" "Hallelujah!"

Dorothy Rowe

Dr. Dorothy Rowe was an Australian psychologist and author, whose area of interest was depression. Born. Died Sydney, NSW. Rowe came to England in her forties, working at Sheffield University and was the head of Lincolnshire Department of Clinical Psychology. In addition to her published works on depression, she is a regular columnist in the UK, she spent her time working with depressed patients and, through listening to their stories, came to reject the medical model of mental illness, instead working within personal construct theory. She believes that depression is a result of beliefs which do not enable a person to live comfortably with themselves or the world. Most notably it is the belief in a "Just World" that exacerbates feelings of fear and anxiety if disaster strikes. Part of recovering is accepting that the external world is unpredictable and that we control little of it. In July 1989 Rowe made an extended appearance on the British television discussion programme After Dark alongside, among others, Steven Rose, Frank Cioffi, The Bishop of Durham and Michael Bentine.

The BBC were required to apologise to Dorothy Rowe in 2009 after the production editing of her radio interview misrepresented her views on the impact of religion in providing structure to people's lives.

Lands of Templehouse

The Lands of Templehouse formed a small estate lying between Aiket Castle and the town of Dunlop, East Ayrshire, Parish of Dunlop, Scotland. The laird's house at Templeland of Dunlop Hill, to give it its formal name, stood near to the ancient road leading from Dunlop to Kirkwood and on to Kennox; the lands were held by the Knights Templar until a date prior to 1570 when the Gemmells of Templehouse were granted the property and remained there until 1962, a period of around 500 years. The spelling ` Gemmell' is used for consistency except; the Gemmells were minor lairds, sometimes known as'bonnet lairds', smaller landowners who wore a hat or bonnet like the humble working labourers. They tended to marry other farming lairds; the Lands of Borland stood to the north-west and North Netherhouses lie to the east, with Mains of Aiket and Netherhill to the south. The property's name variously had the form, Temple House or Tempilhouse and was formally denoted as "the tempillandis of Dunlophill". A fire at Templehouse in the eighteenth century destroyed the family records so no proof of their residency at Templehouse before 1474 survives.

Templehouse is still locally known after the last occupant. The Knights Templar's ownership of the lands are remembered in the name of this property. In 1856 an OS map shows a similar walled garden enclosure to that at Borland, it covered just over half an acre, had a significant height and had a vehicular entrance facing to the east and a pedestrian access via steps to the cottages at the north. The formal paths divided the garden into four squares each of which are shown to have been planted with trees as in a typical orchard. Another map shows chevron shaped beds at both walled gardens; the farm in 1913 consisted of two cottages attached to a byre and a separate building at right angles that may have served as an animal feed store and stable, etc. The cottages have some well carved stonework and may be early 19th century but earlier than the walled garden whilst the byre appears older; the walled garden was unusually built onto the gable end of the western cottage. The other main building, built in an older different style, was quite sizeable.

No clear indications of a spacious laird's house or more ancient buildings survives. A large yard lay in front of the buildings, now covered with rubble. Roads joined the house with Mains of Aiket, South Netherhouses and North Netherhouses. A small whinstone quarry lay to the east that may have been utilised to provide the whinstone for the walled garden and a smaller one above may have been adapted as a bunker for the old golf course. John Gemmil in 1820 held Templehouse at the valued rent of £50 and a John Gemmil held Leahead and part of Aiket at £27; the Netherhouses were held by A. Brown Esq. at £ 100 6s 8d. Thorn was held by a David Gemmil at £53 6s 8d, it was described circa 1855 as "A neat farm house with outbuildings and an excellent garden attached, the property and residence of John Gemmell Esqr." The Knights Templar had owned considerable lands and properties in the bailiary of Cunninghame and in the early 17th century, Robert Montgomerie acquired the rights to these Templelands from the Sandilands family of Calder, the Lords Torphichen and thus became the feudal superiors.

The value of these lands lay in their near exemption from taxation. In about 1720 the lands passed at Fiveways near Kilmarnock. Dr. Robert Patrick of Trearne & Hessilhead purchased the superiority, although this was of little real value after the abolition of heritable jurisdictions in 1747; the genealogy is hard to follow with repeated use of John for the eldest son and Patrick being another popular first name over the generations. In 1425 a John Gemmell held Templehouse and in 1474 Johnne Gemmill was heir to Templehouse, which included the lands of Holehouse and Thorn. In 1570 Patrick Gemmell was a member of the jury in the case of the murder of John Mure of Caldwell. William Cunninghame of Aiket, a neighbour, was one of those on trial for the act. In 1559 Patrick Gemmell was granted Templehouse by the Temple Court at Ayr, the feudal superior being John Spottiswood, preceptor of Torphichen. Patrick Gemmell was married Margaret Montgomerie, they had a son Robert in 1620. The couple had a daughter Janet in 1650.

Another son, was married to Agnes and had children John and David. Tradition has it that one of the Cunninghames of Aiket hanged a Gemmell at Templehouse using the rafters of the victims own house. In 1596 Patrick Gemmell resigned the Templelands of Dunlop Hill into the hands of the Superior, Lord Torphichen, in favour of his eldest son John, a occurring family first name. John married Isobel Ross and had a son John who married Elizabeth Howie, who died in Dunlop parish in August 1616. Both John's died before Patrick Gemmell and the brother of the eldest son of Patrick Patrick, obtained the lands as granted by Robert Montgomerie of Hessilhead and Tempill Cunynghame, although the father retained th liferent. In 1656 the above Patrick's son, John Gemmell, had a charter to hold Templehouse with his intended wife for the length of the life of the longest lived. John Gemmill of Templehouse married an heiress, Janet Dunlop of Holehouse in 1724, their second son, inherited Holehouse and married Mary Dunlop of Loanhead.

A descendent of Janet, John A. Gemmill of Ottowa, replaced their gravestone at Dunlop in 1897, their eldest son, inherited Templehouse. In 1754 John Gemmell obtained t
