It is weeks since I wrote anything on my blog! Not necessarily a bad thing. Instead I decided to start a hand-written journal to capture some of the experiences of living through a pandemic. A strange experience for all of us and continues to be pervasive one way or another. As I go about my day I think of things to blog about but before I know it, the day has gone. One thing that […]

Getting started was the hardest bit. Always worried I might mess it up 🙂 With the many changes to how we listen to music today I have been finding that even though there are so many options, I am actually listening to less music. We decided that having easier access to the multitude of CD’s we own would increase the likelihood of listening to music more often. After searching the internet we found a CD […]

The link for Mining Tax will display the photo  and how it is being used. It was taken in 1988 when I went to the Pilbara with my three sons and had a tour of Mt Newman Mining. The link also […]

This morning I was transported back in time to 1969 … I was getting a few items from the supermarket and a song came over the PA system. I was taken back to a time with some friends in  Swan Hill (Victoria) and remembered listening to a good-looking guy playing his guitar and singing Don’t Forget to Remember Me. He seemed to be mesmerised by my friend Rina – as all the boys seemed to […]

  “The first tune is the hymn Calon Lan (‘Pure Heart’). The written ‘a’ in ‘Lan’ has a little ‘roof’ over its head (‘^’) – it rhymes with ‘barn’ as opposed to ‘ban’. The tune is by John Hughes (1872-1914). The words were first penned by his friend Daniel James (1848 -1920), a Welsh bard who worked at the old tinplate works at Landore just outside Swansea, the current site of Swansea City’s Liberty Stadium.

LOVE ME – THAT IS ALL I ASK OF YOU LISTEN AND WATCH THIS YOUTUBE VIDEO OF “ALL I ASK OF YOU” Isn’t that what we all want? Someone to just “love us”. This song is from the Phantom of the Opera – my favourite musical of all time. I haven’t seen many but […]
