      …And a heartfelt and generally mindblowing cover from 2017 by young Norwegian singer Aurora. (Sorry about the annoying intro.)

      The bellbirds haven’t been seen or heard in the garden for a little while, but it was lovely having them and they are welcome any time. I heard tippy-tap-tap-tip-tap-tap on the shed roof this afternoon. Fred Astaire ? No, waxeyes….and a woodpigeon was here again !

      • Our birds are underrated by us Kitty!

          Do you think so ? Some of us here seem quite dotty about our birds, and assume that everyone else is, too. Which many are, at lease on General Chat 😀

          • No, not you and people here. I meant in the real world where I (we??) mostly reside.
            You know I have kookaburras don’t you?

    The Queen book is really interesting. EMI didn’t sign them up, and when they did later, the price had gone up. A lot. A then wannabe rock/music journalist who had been sleeping in Hyde Park and was befriended & taken in by someone connected with Queen still remembers his incredible stupidity (his word) when he had the chance to interview them in what would have been their first interview and didn’t because he thought that they were ‘too glam’ Over 40 years later and after a career in the business, he still remembers that and how he said thanks but no thanks to the chance to do Queen’s first interview when they were making a name for themselves. They are brilliant. I went into a caff today and Bohemian Rhapsody greeted me.

    I keep wanting to rewrite the script and make Freddie Mercury not have AIDS.

      Dear PDT must be a homophobe who thinks that gays deserve it.
