    Just a quick update on the Pook Family for their legion of silent fans. All still hale and hearty and doing well. Mum Sweety’s flight and tail feathers are slowly growing back, after they all came out during a moulting. I found most of them scattered in a pile over the fence one evening so it looks like it happens very quickly.

    She’s been very quiet and subdued since this happened – don’t think she likes being earthbound, but I tell her every day I can see new ones growing longer every day and to cheer up.

      Tell her that feathers are often seen in the street, so it’s quite normal.

    New from virtuoso guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela; a stunning reinterpretation of some classic Pink Floyd…

      I think they need to put more bass end into that recording, and to pace it up more.

      Bastards. 😡

      Is there nothing sacred any more, B ? :/

      Just as well my bet on Simon getting dumped as national leader in the first 6 months this year is for one of the dairy owners’ own made up $2 jet plane lolly packets.

        Someone said that the family block will soon be 50g.

        Whittakers must be having a good larf, but there will always be the stupid who don’t notice that everything Cadburys is now 25% smaller.

          Free magnifying glass with all Cadbury’s products so that you can see them.

      Beautiful. Lovely arrangement. Wish I could play like that. Never spent enuf time learning to finger pick.

  5. I’m really taken with their version but then again you’re an actual musician and I’m not…

      [Random weirdness; that was a reply to Gezza which I posted way higher up than where it landed.]

        Yes, but I’m not a great musician by any stretch of the imagination, and music is like any other form of art. Nobody’s an expert on what moves you, the listener. And with music, like other art, what moves you is ALL that counts. Stuff anybody else.

    A lighter version of something heavy…
