    Wish I was a Kellogg’s Cornflake
    Floatin’ in my bowl takin’ movies,
    Relaxin’ awhile, livin’ in style,
    Talkin’ to a raisin who ‘casion’ly plays L.A.,
    Casually glancing at his toupee

    Seriously ? I blame Garfunkel for this dross, especially the bit about the toupee.
    Following receipt of International Accolades for my recent Facebook endeavors, my morning has been conflicted out. I stand accused, screamed the email and I don’t understand what you are talking about. Is this a Dreyfuss thing and have you considered a heartfelt and sincere apology. I was rebuked. Meanwhile the cops raided Cliff Richard’s place while he was on his hols with nefarious tales of stuff from 40 years ago. What the hell did they expect to find now ? Cliff is on the front page and I am sure he doesn’t want to be, which is not really like him. I would see Cliff, his license plate is MOVE1T so I know its Cliff. Say it ain’t so, not the way of Rolf please. The Young Ones Darlin’ we’re the Young Ones and Young Ones shouldn’t be afraid

      My Dear Hedley,
      This song was in reference to English muffins and a mutual friend’s e-mail.

      I don’t even know what you are talking about. Accused of what? Rebuked? I am still applauding your Accolade and your award.

      I loved Richard’s quote, “For many months I have been aware of allegations against me of historic impropriety which have been circulating online.” Historic impropriety is a nice turn of phrase given the accusation is from the 80’s.

      We haven’t been the Young Ones in a very long time.

        Your whole post today is really very Muffiny.

        MDH,
        It was my own English muffin which started it all. I seldom buy any, but it was buy 1 get 1 free so I did. From there I naturally moved to toast and bread. A yeasty day!

      • Hedley Says:

        Sorry if I was obtuse, of which I was also accused, but falsehoods seem to permeate the morning. Get out of Cliff’s house, stop being mean about the great man on blogs, issue a general apology just in case and where are The Shads ?

      • katry Says:

        MDH,
        Sexual abuse stories sell papers!

      • Hedley Says:

        Kat
        Its Cliff – not some Whacko from Waco doing bloggy time stuff. And why is Mr Plod going through his underwear drawer ?

      • katry Says:

        MDH,
        I think Jimmy Savile made people wary.

        Underwear fetish?

    In case people don’t know what the heck you’re talking about (I didn’t), here’s a news story. Note that house. He needs to move to Waco, Texas where Sir Cliff could afford something REALLY grand. And I think we all know who could help him spruce the place up.

    Punky’s Dilemma DROSS? I beg to differ. No, I’m not even going to beg. I’m going to flat out tell you in my understated way that you are completely wrong. This is one of my very favorite S&G tunes. Inconsequential, yes, but it’s also delightfully airy and fun and it just makes me feel happy. We need more of that sort of thing.

    • katry Says:

      im6,
      I have always enjoyed the imagery, the metaphors and the fun of this song. Even the tune is light and fun.

      I agree with you.

    • Hedley Says:

      Mr Simon has “writers block” during Bookends – oh really ? Had some other Doofus compose cornflakes and muffins and toupees. One man’s Hendrix is another man’s Lennie

      • katry Says:

        MDH,
        It is easy to write songs of love or hate or loneliness but try writing one with cornflakes and English muffins-that takes talent.

        I like the liveliness of this song.

    I knew he was a knight. I didn’t know he was a priest. (Drumroll, please)

    MDH,
    When this was released, I was just turning 13, a young one.

    She is wearing the perfect lake dress.

    • Hedley Says:

      Kat, I was a spritely 7 and too young to be a young one.

      She is completely fab. And, of course, Cliff would go on to drive the double decker to Greece with The Shads and Una Stubbs.

    • katry Says:

      MDH,
      I find the dress strange lake attire especially with a petticoat. She had a big part: hold hands and smile.

      Some of those kids at the end look 7 or even younger. You could have joined them!

    Meanwhile in North Waco….

    Will they choose the 1965 traditional covered in lime green carpeting, the lovely move-in ready with insufficient bedrooms, or the neglected farmhouse with lots of acreage that Devon says should be surrounded by crime tape

    Choices Choices….Fixer Upper v Zombie Shark

    • katry Says:

      MDH,
      Up with the lime green carpeting, raze the farm house or add a bedroom. I am now watching this program On Demand.

    • katry Says:

      MDH,
      There is always On Demand later so you can see both without having to choose, but I really think you missed Zombie Shark. I swear it was on last night.

      • Hedley Says:

        Zombie Shark #extrasharky is on again tonight at 8.00 pm EST. which runs up against Waco Fixer Upper – thank goodness it doesn’t include Jonathan and Drew….Property Brothers rule

      • katry Says:

        MDH,
        I just watched the Waco program, the first Fixer Upper I’ve ever seen. I like the couple who do the work.
