From The Sublime To The Ridiculous -

Why not ? Just as I was signing off I saw the latest Blogthings Quiz , so did it for fun and, answered honestly . Here are the findings .Sort of the best of both worlds .
Real and genuine --- c'est moi !

You Are Cute-Sexy!

You are definitely attractive, and you have an interesting mix of sexiness and cuteness.

You are both hot and quirky. Gorgeous and silly. Charming and natural.

You are not so in-your-face sexy that you're unapproachable. You tone things down a bit.

More than anything else, you are real and genuine. And that makes you truly captivating.

Basic Maths- Well Done President Obama.

Well well what a surprise, members of the Republican party in US are not in favour of President Obama's stimulus package ...Which one amongst us is surprised ? I for one am not .

Famous or should that be infamous, for being involved in very big business , including arms deals ,oil deals ,they were oh so content to sit back for the last ,not so few years and see trillions of dollars spent on death .. brought about by a 'trumped up invasion '.

Let money be wisely spent and oh do they squeal . Rather like a certain animal in Orwell's Animal Farm .

Great stuff President Obama you show them the real facts of life :-

honesty , reliability , responsibility to name but a few .

Now We have Jazz, Jazz , Jazz.

It's true that few are having an easy time of it these days . Conflicts increase , there is a financial crisis with all the misery attached to such , but, as the song says 'what good is sitting alone in your room ?' Answer none !
These words from the musical 'Cabaret ' , set in pre war Berlin are as true today. This city still has an amazing jazz scene and for just three euro you can forget the gloom , rise above despair and enjoy life . The top two photos show pianist Acki Hoffman and his band . This remarkable group has fantastic style and last week ,played to a packed house in 'der Kleinen Weltlaterne '
The bottom two pictures are of Sydney's Blues Band . Their music is very much Sydney Bechet style . Both groups are terrific as is the venue .Open Monday to Saturday they have bands every Thursday and Saturday .Food is good and well priced . So come hear the music play ,come to the cabaret . Close to the Kudamm at Nestorstr 22 , it's a must see , must do place .

New year Fireballs at Stonehaven 2009

This is how I saw the New Year in ... way up on the North East Coast of Scotland . Then down to Manchester and all I can say is ugggggh . It simply proved mega depressing . Little of the Land of Hope and Glory there .
Onwards south to Dover for the ferry and across to Belgium , Holland and Germany . Home ? Can be anywhere I think . So where and how did you spend your New Year ?
