  1. Anyone who likes Joss Stone and also appreciates Wordl/Cultural music blends could do worse than check out her Total World Music series on YouTube. It’s a fascinating journey into music the world over and her verve for life in general. I consider her to have one of the best voices of her generation. Check out the World Music separately, but here’s her no 1. She is beautiful inside and out.

    As an aside here she is with Pete Bethune on leg one of her journey ( non musical)

    Metal is my first love …but then there’s Donna. Here’s a late-career masterpiece.

    A very underrated artist from back in the day. From 1979:

    Prettygirl, with Missy, Kitty, Travina, Maggles, Boz & Splodge. (Donny & Eric had shot off somewhere else on their own out of camera shot without permission & were no doubt given an earful later on!)

    @PG. Seems ticking function broken. Fine on PC, but missing on mobile – Samsung galaxy

          Sad to say your phones probably riddled with virii. A factory reset will fix it

            Doesn’t seem likely to be virus that only affects ticking on this site?

            • I’ve just been able to tick your comment on my Android phone, so o don’t know what your problem is. Could be a WordPress hiccup – over the last few days I haven’t been able to schedule posts how I normally have, I’ve been having to use a work-around.

              Tick worked for me on my Galaxy S8. It only doesn’t work on Gezza’s comments but that’s because he doesn’t deserve one when he is playing with his stamps.

              More info. Ticks all good with Chrome. Problem seems to be Samsung browser.

              I use Chrome not Samsung browser so that figures.

  7. The other day I had real problems all across my internet access devices and browsers.

    I ended up,getting an update on my iMac and it seemed to sort out the rest

      My tuakana says he was having trouble with authentication & internet access on both his iPhone & iPad over last week or so. Sorted now it seems, but he reckons it was related to 3 recent updates of iOS, flaws in the 1st.
