The Goodies - Wild Thing

For those of you that don't know The Goodies were comedians here in the 70's. I have given this some thought and just can't explain them but I loved them. Apparently they are huge in Australia but I don't know about other countries.

Today I had a delivery from Amazon of my Goodies cd first encountered thanks to my sister.

I cannot find a clip of the song I wanted to play you but this is a good substitute. Bill Oddy sure can wail! Enjoy!

Early one morning just as the sun was rising...


I took these last week. I went on a 4 day bat course in Exmoor. I woke at my normal time the first day and went for a walk down to the beach. The second and third morning I made the most of a small available lie in due to being out for most of each night chasing bats!

It was a brilliant course and a fabulous place to visit. I will be going back! It was also great to be outside for so many hours of the day and night. It's a shame we need to sleep really; although I would not like to be without sleep altogether, I like dreaming too much!

B B King - When It All Comes Down

Ok, just one more then I'm off to work. I will have this song in my head for days now, such a great song!!!!!

B B King - You'd Better not Look Down

A great song for a Monday morning. This one always gets me dancing. Happy Monday all, hope you have a great day!

Benji Kirkpatrick - Wallbreaker

This song is about water. I recently mentioned it in the CDCV post as the song I wish I had written. You can listen to the album version on his Myspace page.

I want a little sugar in my bowl Nina Simone

One of my favourite songs and artists ever! I have been learning this one on the piano, the trick though is singing it with her flare and style!

Keep Music Live!

I got a call from one of our contractors at work on Friday asking if anyone wanted to buy two tickets for a concert on Saturday. He had two extra that he needed to shift and just guess who they were for..........The Foo Fighters.........at Wembley Stadium!!!!!!!!!

Needless to say I said yes please and last night we went to the new Wembley Stadium for the first time and saw Supergrass in support followed by the 2nd best rock band of the last 14 years. (Sorry but Porcupine Tree Rock!)

And they were absolutely awesome! All 86,000 of us in Wembley bounced for three hours!

So just when we thought the evening could not get any better, for the encore they brought out special guests Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones and did two Zeppelin covers, Rock & Roll and Ramble On. Dave played drums on Rock & Roll and the Foos drummer, Taylor Hawkins, did lead vocals brilliantly. I think any Zeppelin song is hard to sing due to styles and standards set by Robert Plant but he really did it justice!

As for the stadium itself it really is amazing. The views are great, the sound was great and the atmosphere electric. And I participated in my first stadium Mexican wave!

We are definitely going to have to go see a football game there, I can only imagine how amazing the atmosphere would be.

A top night which has left me singing Foo Fighter songs all morning and grinning at the wonderful memory! Thanks Ray!

A Feast Fit for a King

Last Sunday my fella and I went over to my sisters for dinner. It was a lovely trip out as we have not seen each other for a while and I miss her company and playing with my wonderful nephew.

However, I wanted to post about the fabulous meal she cooked for us. My sister is a wonderful and imaginative cook, and always makes a huge effort to cater for the vegetarian diet. Last week I think she surpassed herself!

The menu consisted of home made soup, a variation on leak and potato but that description alone does not do it justice. The soup was garnished with 3 slices of salami for the meat eaters and three slices of cucumber for me! It was very delicate and worked so well, I would not have expected it but cucumber goes very well with hot food. (My fella likes cucumber with his chips and swears it is an excellent combination.)

The main course was.......blimey I think everyone had lamb but I am afraid I was a little pre-occupied with this!

This sadly is not a photograph of the actual dish which consisted of a whole stuffed cabbage which was tied to keep it's shape but this is a pretty good representation of it.

The cabbage was stuffed with vegetarian mince and a whole heap of tasty goodies. It didn't touch the sides so I am struggling to remember in too much detail! It really was fabulous and everyone tried some and agreed.

The pudding I have to say, and I have had a week to think about this and still feel the same, goes down as my nicest pudding ever! I recently passed comment on my pudding preference over at Lone Chatelaine's blog and stated that I like them delicate and light. My sister had prepared home made mango ice cream with roast peaches..........sorry needed a moment there and now my mouth is watering all over again!

The afternoon was topped off with coffee and games, a perfect afternoon!
