    A family gathering (not guitar related)

    With families being spread around the country these days it is very rare to get everybody together in one place at the same time. Add to that the recent problems caused by Covid and the matter is even more complicated. However, on Tuesday of this week we finally managed to get 4 generations of...

    One of the best performances on Jools Holland (IMHO)

    Jools has had many impressive acts and artists on his shows over the years, but this is exceptional in my opinion. A great song & singer coupled with a lovely Big Band arrangement of ace players.

    A lovely misty morning walk in England (The joy of retirement)

    It's a cold and misty morning in Cambridgeshire today. This time last year I would have been driving to work in the Fog across the Fen roads. Another thing about work that I don't miss!

    Cars you have owned....

    I recently found these old photographs that show the first 3 cars that I owned. My 1st car is the Blue one (with body filler) in the background of this picture. I got it S/H in 1977. It was a Simca 1100 (No, me neither!). It's big attraction was that you could fit a 4x12 cabinet in the back of...

    We were looking after Alana this afternoon until her parents got home from work. We were laying on the floor doing various puzzles when she asked if we could put some music on. My wife asks her what sort of music she would like - expecting her to say Disney songs or nursery rhymes. But no. She...
