Having some 'puter issues. In the hunt for a suitable reconditioned iMac but could take a week or so. If I am unable to refresh or post for the next few days please know I am still aboard, singing, rowing, sailing.

I just looked up all the definitions of "celebrate."

It seems that what we do in this place is celebrate one another and life within all definitions and meanings of the word.

I come late to this vigil, this memorial...

Your situation moved me to tears. I have lost both parents and a brother to cancer, and am a survivor of my own serious bout some 40 years ago.

I am so so sorry for your loss. It is so unfair when a child dies before a parent.

My best wishes to you and your family. Hold on to each other.

I'll second that, gnu: "Happies to all". The sun's shining here in East London too, Wendy. Had a good 'domestic' day yesterday. The roof of our house needed some attention, as did the roof of our garden shed, which took a bit of a battering in the winter storms. All fixed cheerily & professionally by Dave & Dan...gawd bless 'em! Had to get the water company in as well to 'spring clean' the drains (details withheld, engage imagination if necessary!).

It is a beautiful sunny morning here in Frinton, I am in the salon and have one of my favourite clients due in a few minutes for a lovely relaxing aromatherapy, relaxing for me too with all those lovely oils. Then at lunchtime off to the beach hut with Billy for some lunch. I will read my book, he will sleep. Thanks to mum's carer we can have a few hours on our own. Just to reassure you my life is, generally, good and today will be a happy one!

Sending love to all the Rainbow angels,may your day be happy, healthy and contented!!

My boy is on his way. Just left for the drive to the mountains. They will arrive late tonight, stay in a cheap motel and start out tomorrow morning on their longboards. Weather will be good tomorrow and quite bad for several days after. I'm the farthest west and therefore the last stop on their trip out of their home region. Good of them to check in with each parental household on the way out of town to allow hugs and good wishes.

Just want to note, especially to pete from seven stars, that I do not confuse the risks my own healthy boy is choosing to take, nor do I confuse my own accompanying fears, with the circumstances of Tommy and you, his mother and your family.

Wendy... it's the pitch that does the trick. A lower pitch will 'penetrate' fog better. I seem to recall a man walking home in the fog. He could hear low piano notes only and that's how we came to use foghorns in the manner we do.

Thank you for the video, Tam,

Nigel, good news, keep well. ( Had a cup of tea at the hut yesterday, in very thick sea mist, think it is called a " Haa" ? Very spooky but peaceful. We could hear the chug of boat engines but could not see the water! Last night could hear the fog horns in Harwich into the wee small hours. Does sound travel better in the fog?)

Janie, I can understand your concern for your son's trip, but as we say: It sounds like he's got his head screwed on the right way". What a great adventure! I'm sending him whoever or whatever it was that protected me during my rock climbing/mountaineering days.

Wendy, gnu's said it for me. Your sensitivity to your Mother's needs are remarkable. A lesson in Life & Living for us all.

Amergin, thank you for the refresh. Feels like a vote of confidence (-:

Gnu, thinking, hoping, wondering about you. Whatever your problem(s) is/are, it is my earnest wish that you be relieved of this burden soon & return to Jane's Rainbow to continue your voyage with us. You will be greatly missed in the interim.

I spent most of yesterday at a TIA clinic. I suffer from Hemiplegic Migraine, the symptoms of which closely resemble a stroke. Following the presentation of a new symptom after a recent attack, my GP made an urgent referral. Pleased to report that, after a battery of tests & scans, all symptoms would appear to be Migraine-related. However, it transpires, this type of Migraine doubles my chances of having a stroke, so as a precaution, I have to take 75mg of Aspirin each day. I feel relieved, but have not quite achieved 'peace of mind' status....yet! As Wendy would say: "Sailing on."
                                                                   With Love,
                                                                                  Nigel.

Thank you for your good wishes, Wendy. Much appreciated.

Is this the song and performance you noted?
Someday, performed by Sue Graves and Brian Willoughby

Thinking of you and your Mum. Always learning, eh? Reassurance -finding touchstones for not only ourselves but for our loved ones whose anchors are now not always where those of us in the present can discern immediately. Challenging labor. Labor of love. Hit or miss, as long as the labor is guided by love there is no failure. Frustration? Yes. You are so insightful in rising to the day-to-day challenges of how best to manage and care for your mother. Hard, frustrating and demanding. Day to day, moment to moment, tend to yourself also - I think I understand you do so, understanding that you can not care for others as you do if you don't care for yourself also - but it must feel exhausting sometimes. The night is mild, the breeze gentle and the stars are bright. Come sit a spell here on deck, feet propped up, and sip on this nice warm cup of herb tea. We can spike it a bit if you like, up to you. You too, Linn and VT, and any other ladies and gents perhaps needing a little petting and making over, even if you don't realize it. Breathe in deep of the spring salt air and the gentle breeze. Let go with the gentle rocking of the waves on calm and sheltered seas. .....hhmmmm, hhmmm, hhmm, hhm every day, flashes like a stray blue jay....(Bruce Colburn)

Janie,

sending good thoughts for their adventure and angels to keep them safe xx

Went to the hospital today for Billy's three month check up, his consultant was very pleased ,blood counts good and he looks so well. Billy asked when the three month visit could be extended to six and the consultant said never, he wants to see him every three months as he is in remission. Brought home the reality that there is no " cure" for CLL But we came home happy, took our daughter out for a lovely lunch then sat in the garden enjoying the sunshine.

This evening mother had a bad moment, reduced me to tears saying " please take me home" after an hour of saying "this is your home mum" I tried a new tack " of course mum, we will go home in the morning" rewarded by the most beautiful smile .

Then I went on facebook to Harvey Andrews page and listened to a beautiful song he had written. sung at a BBC recording by a lovely lady singer and Brian Willourby ( cant do blue clicky but it is called " Someday".) Lifted my spirits as music always does. Beautiful song, beautifully sung, it is on U tube if you can find it crew?



loving thoughts to all the crew

Exciting and also anxiety provoking for this Mom. My responsible son (for a 20 year old) and an equally responsible friend are embarking on a two week adventure this coming weekend. They are long boarding (refers to a skateboard designed for traveling instead of tricks and X sports) with the intent to travel from the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina to the North Carolina Coast over a period of 2 weeks. They wisely decided to change their original plans from traversing the northern part of the state to the southern part of the state a couple of weeks ago for two reasons. The first being we are having a harsher, colder and longer winter than we have have in North Carolina for at least the past 15 years and the weather is likely to be less threatening further south. The second is they are less likely to encounter fear, hostility and agression further south. Over-all, I am relieved they have changed their route, and also think the southern route is safer simply in terms of torrain and wider highways once they are out of the mountains. The 1/3 leg of the journey, however, will be in much higher mountains, narrower roads and generally more demanding and dangerous road torrain for skateboarders and I am a bit anxious. So is my youngin'. Please visualize motorists who are alert and kind and non-resentful of people traveling along switchbacks who are not in vehicles and might cause one to put on the brakes without resentment.

Power came back 3 days earlier than anticipated. Tree tops and lots of branches down in the yard but no trees on the house and no actual whole trees down in my yard. Nature did what nature does. Pruned, and past time for it.   The wind is delightfully scented of pine from the downed boughs and treetops in my yard. I'm sitting pretty and ready to row or sing.

agree with nigels remarks re gnu and his mum.
we been down winchelsea over the weekend. we changed to a bigger caravan, mainly because tommy has more equipment so needs more room.
it felt sad having finished clearing out the old van and leaving it for the last time. my mum had been very particular with it and we had left her ornaments there as fond memories. and it felt a bit like letting go of something of hers that we had still retained. of course we do have more room in the new van for the ornaments too!

Sandra, I hope your computer woes are soon sorted. I have a love/hate relationship with technology. I love it when it works and hate it when it doesn't.

Gnu, others have refreshed this thread, too, but of course your efforts are greatly appreciated. I tend to let a vital thread (yes, I consider this a vital thread) skip one day before I refresh it and try to do so with a comment, though I often can't think of one and have to resort to "Refresh." If a deadline is approaching, I might refresh it daily. That's assuming I get to Mudcat daily, which I try to do if too many other things aren't cluttering my waking hours. When I don't get to Mudcat, I feel like I've missed out on something. (OCD-me? Maybe slightly!)

Thanks for the video about Zappa's collection and the Elephant Walk. That music was cool, but I prefer this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fkSfPxk_xKY

Oh, and gnu, happy birthday!

I asked him if he know who Frank Zappa was, knowing the answer. I played some for him. He freaked out. I let him access my LPs after I showed him how they should be handled. Anytime my buddy visited me after that, the lad would immediately ask if he could play some records. Warmed my heart. Not too often a kid gets access to THAT many works of art. Imagine a kid (some 15 years ago) listening to Mario Lanza... Torme... Pavarotti... Makem... Roger Miller... The Cars... Zappa... Deep Purple... Alice Cooper... Jethro Tull... Patty Wynette... about 3000 to choose from. Now, kids get fed Beeber or whatever the hell his name is. Sigh.

"Apostrophe in my opinion is the finest album Zappa ever made and deserves a special place in some music hall of fame..."

Accolades abound. There is even one song that I don't like half of! Takes a rebel to push even MY boundaries. I agree that it deserves a high pedestal among all works of music, as objective and assuming as that may be. Add to that the fact that Frank was SO amazingly intellectual and debated politics, governance, law, religion... you name it... with some of the great names and, IMHO, trash media interviewers, it saddens me that a man who only ever did one drug (tobacco) died from that one drug FAR too young. RIP, Frank. YOU had a Crystal Ball.

On a lighter note. I am delighted with my plan. Mum is 87 and not so well. She is saddened by the fact that she can't get me something for the big day. She is having a more than usual bad day today, so... I went shopping for birthday presents for Mum. I got 2 pairs of PJ pants, 6 pairs of HD socks and Kaspersky 2014 Pure 3.0. I put the items in one a them there gift bags what I got at the Dollar Store and covered it with the fancy white paper. I will take the bag to Mum's tomorrow AM and act real surprised like when I open up the bag and say things like "OMG! JUST WHAT I WANTED! HOW DID YOU KNOW?! AND SOCKS! AND KASPERSKY!!! I love you, Mum. Thanks." I hope she gets a laugh out of it.

Yesterday, as I usually do on her and my Bday and at Kissmeass, I gave her two dozen roses, white and red, a big hug and a 'thanks for looking after me' for, well, this year it will be 57 years and nine months. Hmmm... part of that should be 'putting up with me' I suppose.

Maybe not the right place to post this prattle but I think it's heartwarming and worth sharing with this scurvy lot of tars. Warms MY heart. If it don't warm yers... prepare to be boarded!

Yes, I am celebrating early. Why do you ask? Anyone coming over for BBQ style back ribs? I got a BIG pot boilin and the sauce is near done and there's lots of cold ales... well... a fair few left. >;-)

Thanks for the clips gnu......Apostrophe in my opinion is the finest album Zappa ever made and deserves a special place in some music hall of fame. It uses roots of jazz, blues, rock, and even trad, to create a collection of work unequalled anywhere else. Then add in the musicality of the band and the arrangements. It is beyond all doubt the tightest of any rock style album ever and Frank goes on to use odd instrumentation and electronics to outstanding effect.

You can enjoy the whole thing just for the listening or then break it down and take it apart and lose your mind in amazement at the talents of Frank Zappa and the sheer "on it" tightness of the band. Then throw in some very memorable lyrics and phrases............many have entered mine and others lexicon.

If I see some ripoff of a more expensive object I ask, "Is that a real poncho or is that a Sears poncho?"

I get soap in my eyes in the shower and I sing loudly, "I can't see....(BWA_DA WABA BWOP DAH BADOP BWADOP)....I can't see ....(BWA_DA WABA BWOP DAH BADOP BWADOP)....

And probably 30 others all from this album. I love Frank and there are other good albums like Weasels Ripped My Flesh but none touches Apostrophe.


Okay.....enough of that! Many UPS to all and how about some warmer and happy days extending to this crew as Spring comes to Jane's Rainbow! Love to you all!!!


Spaw

Spaw, yup, 3D hugs available 24/7.

Gnu, the Zappa track is from a parallel universe...what a voice!

Maeve, many 'Ups' back to you.

Wendy, so good to read your positive news. In your earlier post, you sounded so lonely & vulnerable.

Pete, very pleased you enjoyed the Music. I hope you're ok too.

Frogprince, enjoyed your play on words. Can I hear Andy Williams in the 'dim & distant', singing: "Up, up & Away"?

Chantey & Sandra, greetings & hugs from good old London Town.

I'm sending you all a package full of the glorious, spring sunshine that's streaming through my window this morning. If you need more, just ask!
