  1. “Playing for change” is a YOUTUBE channel well worth a subscribe. Playing for Change is a multimedia music project, created by the American producer and sound engineer Mark Johnson with his Timeless Media Group, that seeks to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music.

    Anyway well worth a looksie. There are some pretty awesome collaborative songs across all genres.

    Gimme shelter – various artists

    One of my favourite artists. Keb Mo

    A particularly good collaborative Pata Pata cover. Nobody can do it as well as Miriam Makeba but hey…they give it a go

      One of my less intelligent decisions was not to buy a Stones LP in a 2nd hand shop because I didn’t want to carry it round all day and thought that it would still be there when I went back.

    Sometimes laziness and sloppiness are not bad things. I accidentally wiped all the photos from one camera from the computer-many of which are of my late husband. Had I deleted them from the camera…..

        I bought a memory card wossname to recover the photos. Let’s hope that they are all/mostly still there thanks to my sloth. I did put some early ones onto One Drive, like the one of him and the dog reading-you’d swear that they are sharing a book, with Dog asking what that word means..

    For Peter Dunne

    Some people got the real problems
    Some people out of luck
    Some people think I can solve them
    Lord heavens above
    I’m only human after all, I’m only human after all
    Don’t put the blame on me
    Don’t put the blame on me
