Now for something completely different


Recommended Posts

First Judith Durham, now Olivia Newton John. Two extraordinary talents lost to the world. They are remembered fondly around the world.

Go rest high on that mountain, you will find a hell of a band there.

Inspiring words, Lyle.  Thank you for sharing.  We also lost Archie Roach, an incredibly talented indigenous man with a haunting, rich voice.

I woke up with a headache this morning and then found out about Olivia Newton John's passing. I saw her in concert with John Farnham a few years ago. It was an excellent concert.

Archie Roach passed away in the hospital I was born in. I loved his voice.

Leigh, when I “liked” your post about Olivia above, I didn’t mean I liked your headache.  All the golden voices we’ve lost.  We may all have to practise karaoke and, at least in my case, pretend we can sing.  Hope you’re having a lovely time in Cairns.

Thank you Linda, I didn't think you meant my headache! W up with a headache was not a good start to the day and then when I heard about Olivia, it made it worse.

Grease is currently showing on 9.  Wonderful memories of another era. 

I was delighted when one of our granddaughter’s high school renamed their annual celebration day “Grease”.  She told me the music was “cool”.  They raised a substantial amount for breast cancer research💓

What a great idea raising money for breast cancer research, through Grease Day at your granddaughter's high school.

It really depends on your viewing tastes.  We particularly love the British detective shows and mysteries, travel and cooking programmes.  Fox caters for those, and Netflix has some great movies.

 

If you like British detective shows you may want to check out Acorn TV, it's almost a dedicated streaming service to that genre😂

I think 7 replayed their telemovie about her and on Spotlight tonight they are doing a tribute to her along with 60 min.

The British Sausage Company now sells a Welsh sausage, with leeks and lots of pepper in it. Very yummy. Coles usually sells this brand but not always all their different varieties.
