The Next Hollywood Blockbuster

This clip just came on tv, I’ve seen it before but it still cracks me up. Any budding writers out there, here’s how you do it.

Only Fools and Horses was a UK sitcom, ran for donkeys years.

Who Won the Week (6 June 2021)

In response to Fandango’s Who Won the Week post, I have been looking at my own newsfeeds.

I’m going to take you back more than thirty years this week. Start there, anyhow. To Yorkshire, in the UK. A soccer event at a stadium called Hillsborough in Sheffield.

Reblog: Songshine Sunday #8

KK is on vacation this week, so the Sunday post she normally does, the post which spawned the name of the blog, I did this week.

The theme of the post is “uplifting” and so I chose one from the early Sixties. Pre-Beatles music, I often find quite innocent, youthful, optimistis I guess, maybe a little naive even? So I thought this track would fit the bill.

I didn’t write it in the post, but the singer, a guy called Gerry Marsden, died at the start of this year. I don’t think it was COVID-related, but sad nevertheless. And while I couldn’t wait to leave Liverpool, he lived his whole life up there. I guess the early chart success made him financially-secure, and he was well-known up there for the charity work he did these later years.

My clip shows him at the indestructable age of 21.

Songshine Sounds

Graphig for the Songshine Sunday post

Whether or not there’s sunshine where you are in the world this Sunday, we hope you’ll enjoy a sunny track, and that it uplifts your spirit.


KK took a week off this week so I’m afraid you get my pick. Sorry. She’ll be back next week. Unless it’s a really good vacation, I guess.

The Taming of the Shrew

Clipart Image of William Shakespeare

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 6 June 2021, conspicuous.

As their sex life was falling to pieces,
Thought of role-play to make some increases,
But his codpiece conspicuous,
Made him look quite ridiculous,
And his missus just fell into creases.
