    Hi Val, Thanks for hosting, what a great season concept!

    This is a rare chance for us to post one early. Jon sent me his live take around 5 hours ago. I sent it Willie Favero, and he and I simultaneously worked up parts to go with Jon's performance, and I got Willie's part back within a couple of hours, and folded it into the mix, and finished up with the harmonies and short instrumental break. While I was mixing, jon was putting together the film. Start to finish in around 5 hours ~

    Talk less, play more . . . .

    I am getting this one out of the way quickly! I love this song ... it has previously been done by such Seasonista luminaries as The Silly Dave, Linda L and John of the North. I have absolutely NO idea what "shimmying" constituted when this song was written in 1922 ... or even if it was legal! The wonderful dancing lady comes from 1902. She MIGHT be shimmying, but it reminds me of nothing as much as trying to change the cover on the duvet (comforter/doona!)

    This is one of the odd semi-comic songs which a young David Bowie wrote, when he was trying to be the new Anthony Newley.



    My brother unearthed this family photo a few weeks ago. My guess is it was taken about 50 years ago on the sea front at Sheringham, Norfolk. It's me, my parents, and my mother's parents, having cups of tea, back in the days when some people put a tie on to go the beach.

    Oh, thank you, Emma! The box that we're sitting on played a very large part in my childhood ... it was a car, a train and many other things. Simple times!

    My mum's sister was visiting from NYC, together with her daughter, my cousin. They brought my grandma along - all the way from Co. Clare. Another cousin, Jimmy, had brought along a Super-8.

    Oh, Paul and Rob THANK YOU for those! Paul you are really lucky that you have film surviving from that period (no one we knew was the proud possessor of a movie camera!) What on earth was your father doing, bouncing a ball off your head REPEATEDLY ... fortunately, it obviously never affected your "little grey cells!"

    And Rob ... I knew that you had a HUGE family, but WOW! (And I looked really carefully, but I couldn't see you in the photo ... do I need to look again?)
