Back in January I booked tickets at our local little theatre for my husband and I to see the sixties band Manfred Mann, My husband alas couldn't get to the concert, so I asked a good friend if she would like to go with me. Janice enjoyed the concert as much as I did. It was her first time seeing them, my third. Each concert I have seen was completely different and this concert was completely different again as Mike D'abo and Mike Hugg were not on the line-up last night but nonetheless very enjoyable and in my opinion a far better concert. The keyboard player last night was Zoot Money.
Paul Jones, sang lots of Rhythm and Blues stuff as well as the Manfred songs from when he was in the group (Mike D'abo took over when he left)
Tom McGuinness when he left the group formed McGuiness Flint. Their songs Malt and Barley Blues and When I'm Dead and Gone.
Others sang songs too, and Zoot Money played the keyboard solos and well as Simon Currie playing the saxaphone
We've had snow, lots of snow! We've had rain, lots of that too. Now can we have sunshine, please?
It was my eldest's 37th Birthday on 26th March
I have completed this.
It is a cardigan for my youngest grand daughter. My son above requested it just after she was born, she is now fourteen months old. I didn't start it then, I started it a couple of weeks ago. I thought I would wait till she was older and walking. They like comfortable jackets for when she is sitting in her car seat rather than big bulky coats.
Its the first day of Spring *Equinox today in the northern hemisphere.
The days are longer!
The equinox does not always fall on the same day each year due to the fact that the earth orbits the sun on a slightly elliptical path, meaning that the spring equinox can happen on either the 19th, 20th or 21st of March. Its all to do with when the sun crosses the equator.
Spring is traditionally celebrated as a time of rebirth such as Easter and Passover.
