Judith Durham

August 7, 2022

Judith Durham, the lead singer of The Seekers, died Friday at age 79. Durham joined The Seekers in 1963 when the band released its debut album, “Introducing The Seekers.” They shot to international fame as the first Australian group to achieve mainstream success in the U.S. and U.K. She will be honored at a state funeral. She is the true icon of Australian music.

 I know every word of The Seekers’ songs I’ve posted today, and I even sang along. I bought their albums after the first time I heard them. They and she deserved their own posting today.

Enjoy and remember!

Happy Birthday, Bob Dylan!!

Hiatus!!

May 9, 2022

I am running very, very late this morning so Coffee will not be until the afternoon. Of all days for the dogs to let me sleep-in, they chose the one day when I have a couple of appointments. As Arnold said, “I’ll be back.”

Where the heck is she?

I will try to post later this afternoon, Sunday afternoon. I am going to Hyannis for another concert. It is open street on Main Street: no cars allowed. Along the route, a variety of musical groups will be playing. Stores are all open. It will be a fun day.

Lagniappe: Mitch & Mickey – A Kiss At The End Of The Rainbow

If you haven’t ever watched A Mighty Wind from which the clip comes, get a copy as quickly as you can, prepare the snacks and don’t forget the popcorn. Every movie needs popcorn.

Even if you don’t like folk music, HORRORS!!, the music in this movie is worth the listen. It is a Christopher Guest movie through and through. I’m thinking watching this clip should get you want want to know more. Why is this song so poignant? Is there a backstory? Hmmmm.

Music? Where’s the Stinking Music?

I don’t have time to post the music now. I will post when I get home. Be as patient as you usually are.

She’s At It Again!

This morning I have a few errands, two are musts and two are just necessary. I’ll probably not get to coffee until late afternoon. Please check back!!

Waiting On A Friend: The Rolling Stones

Giving Tuesday

December 1, 2020

A bit of a tweak from Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities, “This is the worst of times,” is real and frightening. The lines for boxes of food are endless. Hospitals are again running out of beds, and every new day brings a higher count of the infected and of those who have passed. If we can, we need to help.

Around this time of year, my father always told us that he was grateful for the Salvation Army, and for all they did for him when he was in the service during World War II. My sisters and I never passed a kettle without putting money through the slot. This year there are no kettles so I’ll give on-line. Money is needed now more than any other time.

Please donate somewhere.
