ok… the boys are back from their tour and the house smells of sport kits wore for two weeks and occasionally washed in a sink… if you catch my drift… but you know what? I don’t care. I’m happy they’re home, I’m happy they’ve had a fabulous time and saw some of the world out […]

During the Women’s March on Washington on January 21, 2017, there were several flashmobs of women singing this song together. They […]

Last Monday I went to a friend to a gig closing the Cheltenham Jazz Festival… Caro Emerald… do you know her? Oh my what a fun night!  Her music is so happy and really gets you going… … and I think it’s what I need on this greyish Friday morning with a super weekend ahead […]

I found a Bee Gees greatest hits double album in a charity shop for the pricely sum of £2.50 a couple of days ago and I can’t stop playing it. But this video? priceless. The hair… the high waisted pants… the moves… they lyrics…   “you can tell by the way I use my walk […]
