Music? Well now! I know of a lovely Canuck lady musician who has a theme(s) that runs thru her music. Empowerment of women and education of young adults thru her songs. Her amazing song 'Birmingham' brought a great impetus to the awareness/promotion of battered women's plights/rights in Canada. Here is another such song which DOES reach young people on more than one level on more than one issue. Whilst some may view it as just a rock song to be played at HIGH volume and danced to, I view it as a triumph by this artist and socially conscious individual. It speaks volumes.

Again, it is rock music. Speakers on ELEVEN!

Pete, I hope you can manage that trip to Winchelsea. There's a will, so I hope there's a way.

Maeve, I hope options open for you sooner than you think.

Janie, the Johnson Girls have been booked for this year's sea music festival, but even when they are not booked they are usually there for the festival and sing a song or two at the late-night pub sings and also the January Chantey Blast afternoon. Anyway, I look forward to meeting you whenever you do get to Mystic.

trust billybob, that a delightful time continues in nelsons county as you are assured of reliable carers for your mum.
we are planning to go to the caravan at winchelsea for a few days tomorrow, with tommy in plastered leg....if we can manage.

hope you have a clear trip, Janie, though probably tinged by some sadness.
I think that is the first time I have heard ladies doing sea shanties, and a nice job they do of it.

My fingers didn't walk well on the keyboard in that last post. Glad you could translate and forgive the typos.

One of these days I'm gonna make it to Mystic. Any combination of the Johnson Girls works for me. Any song that moves us together, or reminds us that we are much better off joined together works for me also. Seems right now that seas are calm for some and quite rough for others. What matters, regardless,is a stalwart crew and that we have in spades.

Stay on board with us, Bassen!

Janie, I've been playing the Johnson Girls CD with that song lately. Coincidentally, I spoke briefly to one of them, Bonnie, at Mystic Seaport on Saturday. Maggie no longer sings with them. I believe she has moved too far away to make rehearsals and performances possible. She was not on their third CD. Even with 4 voices instead of 5, they sound great. Your weekend sounds like it will be a positive experience.

And Wendy and Billy, I hope the rest of your weekend away from home continued as well as it began.

Lovely, Wendy. And what gnu said.

The 3rd anniversary of Daddy's death was a few days ago. It didn't seem appropriate -and I didn't have a strong need to remark on it at that immediate time Talked with Mom tonight about plans for the family to go up to the University the Saturday in May for their annual memorial service for people who donated their bodies. Family emergency prevented us from going up the year his ashes were scattered and due to a glitch in the University's system we were notified of the date last year.

Will be a long day at that Saturday, driving to Morgantown and back to Mom's - and also a lovely day. Looking forward to it. My nephews, who my parents raised after Kaye died are riding up with us, sans grandnieces (who I delight in, but are so young that they demand alot of attention.) I have no doubt it will be a good trip and a good visit and it will be settling to finally have an image and memory of where Daddy's ashes landed. It would have been OK regardless, but definitely better to finally have a mental space with a visual image.

Billy and I are in Norfolk, for a week. We have hired a small cottage but tonight have our daughter and her husband and two girls and our son and grandson with us. My cousin has hired a large house with swimming pool (lovely) with all his family . So today there were 21 of us having lunch, then swimming then dinner. I cannot tell you how much laughter and fun there was. Reliving old family memories around a huge kitchen table.

Mother is safe at home with her carers. But Billy and I are having a rest surrounded by our wonderful extended family.

Sending all our love to the Rainbow crew. Wishing you all a peaceful and contented night.

much love

Hi guys.

As a veteran lurker who's been around since the late 90s but only posted infrequently, I felt like saying I use this thread like I used to use the whole Mudcat. Here I find people interacting in kindness and generosity. I find evidence that we have more in common than we think. I was always more of a reader than participator but such is my nature. The way I use the Mudcat now, I start on "Messages since last visit" and go down the names list, finding the threads that a small handful of names have posted on (looking at you 'Spaw). Names from the "old days". More and more, I pretty much just end up on this thread. Even though most probably don't recognize my moniker, I'm thankful that I still belong to this family, however noisome and contentious some of the more distant cousins have become. Best wishes and good thoughts to you all.

Best to all and especially Nigel who gets all my best coming his way. Aging kinda' sucks...............Just spent a week in the hospital trying to fix the unfixable once again but alas.....Aging kinda' sucks........No......It definitely sucks!!

But the look of Spring is arriving in Ohio which is encouraging and Karen who has been having real problems with a root canal which is still infected looks to be better. She looks totally worn out with her job, her health problem, and most of all the effort it takes to keep me going so give her a good thought!

Much Love

CL... actually, Mum took the power outage better than she did worrying about the possibility of one. Thanks for the concern. The crews had everyone back on line yesterday, two days sooner than promised. It was very tough for a lot of people, especially kiddies and their parents and, more so, elderly people.

Spring is teasing us. I hope it comes for all of us, metaphorically speaking, of course... wouldn't wanna leave out those below the line (southern hemisphere). >;-)

a bit of an April Fools fun from Australia & Canada - passed on by JennieG

Read this on the ABC news site today - a wombat dairy!

I thought it was a corker. The best April Fool I found online today was from West Jet, a Canadian airline, who announced a new class for flyers - Kargo Kids, whereby kids fly in the cargo compartment while their parents (and everyone else) rides in quiet child-free comfort in the cabin. It was on youtube,and was hilarious.

she's not wrong!

Mean? My power was out for 6 1/2 hours. I didn't mind it but Mum did. That's kinda mean. Worse, there are still 10k without power, mostly in two villages/areas, and many will be without until the weekend. It's the kiddies and the seniors I feel sorry for. Cold temps wind wind and the government had cut snowplowing services so badly that many people couldn't get to the Red Cross or community 'warming centres'.

But! This AM, it's NOT!!! snowing or raining or... Temp is suppose to go up to +2 so some of the ice will melt.

I dunno why most everybody is shoked and surprised that we had a stretch of 'weather'. Hey, we knew the forecast for a month. "In like a lamb, get ready." they say, eh?

Small potatoes considering the woes of others in this thread and the various sorts of devastation around the world, natural and man made (especially the bullets). I count my blessings and wish the same to all.

Much here to comment on, but I can't for a few more days. I've been confined to bed for the last few days. The Polymyalgia & Dystonia have flared up something alarming.

Nigel,

Billy and I were thinking of you and Ann on Sunday, I am glad it was a day full of memories and with your family around you.

Pete, so sorry to hear about Tommy, hoping he recovers quickly.

We have had a stressful week with Mother, the dementia is progressing really quickly and the " take me home" moments are more regular and very distressing for us all.Billy took me to lunch at the local Marina yesterday, a beautiful special place on the Walton Backwaters .It is usually not very busy in the winter but yesterday there was a coach trip from Kent so crowded. We had a lovely lunch and then were talking over our situation when I just started to cry and could not stop !! Not like me at all, poor Billy was in a tiz and didn't know what to do. I am sure no one noticed but I felt so stupid!! However we are going to London on Saturday to stay at Katies flat in Borough Market and the young are taking me out to lunch on Sunday, so I am sure that two days away will cheer me up!

I have contacted my lovely Admiral Nurse and we will meet up soon, I really want Mother to stay living with us for as long as possible but will be guided by her advice?

sailing on, its a heavenly sunny day here, will take a walk by the sea and blow the sadness away.

with love

Wendy xxxxxxxxxxxxx
