Buying bread from a man in Brussels
He was six-foot-four and full of muscle
I said, "Do you speak-a my language?"
He just smiled and gave me a Vegemite sandwich :lol:

I like Men at Work some good tunes there. Colin Hay I would like to see him he tours regularly and Scheila Gonzalez plays with him often, he toured with the Ringo Star Allstar Band this year but it wasn't in the cards to see a show.

I dated Ron Strykert Ex (guitarist from Men at Work), pre Mrs Eddie of course = they were one crazy mixed up bunch

Incidentally Men at Work had to pay heaps on royalties after the copywrite holder of "Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree" got wind of were the melody came from.....

Baaaack! Went to my BF for his birthday this weekend.

I sat a few hours drawing with my niece, who's 13 and already selling drawings for a good sum. She taught me how to make the art she is making now. Which is realistic drawings after photos using pastel pencils. Pretty amazing.

Hey Bonny , well done for nuturing the artistic talent in your neice .
I did a similar thing with my great neice (my neices daughter) some years ago and she is now sytudying at art college here in Plymouth .
She was born deaf and has had hearing implants she also suffers from an illness that leaves her very tired and so she is doing very well to be able to study/create her artworks .
The artist in all of us must be encouraged ;)

First weekend since I started this job. Dad had a visit with the cardiologist, he got a lot of stuff planned all of a sudden.

That law suit was outrageous. That was not a true copyright violation and it's criminal that the legal system at the time couldn't figure that out.

Agree entirely Poly, it was a crime in itself against music, and all because of a remark on the TV show Spicks and Specks..............

I work 32 hours per week so that I have time to run errands while dad is unwell.

On the bright side, Dir En Grey returns to Europe, so I'm happily scheduling.

To be honest, working on the phone often seems quick. The hours fly by a lot.

Surhuisterveen. No I don't expect you to be able to pronounce that, but I'd love to hear you try.

Oh well, back in the rat race. I hope we'll be able to get some time off together.
