Smorgasbord Weekly Round Up – Music, books, blogs and Humour

round-upWelcome to another weekly round up of the posts you might have missed.  I am settling into my new routine of writing and reading and trying not to be distracted by all the great stuff being posted… It is not so easy to do but I am making progress … I am just handing off my next short story collection and hope that it will be ready by March… and I am working on two others that have been idling in a corner giving me baleful looks.

My thanks to all of you who have been in and out during the week and are so consistent with your support.. It keeps me motivated and brightens my day..

Of course thanks to William Price King who is now in his third year of his invaluable contribution to the blog with his music series.  The last part of Kiri Te Kanawa is this coming Wednesday and then we have an opera singer who has influenced to many of today’s artists.. Leontyne Price is an American Soprano and one of the first African Americans to become a leading artist at the Metropolitan Opera.

The next series from William is going to be covering some of the popular singers of our generation such as Shirley Bassey.. So don’t go anywhere.

Classical Music with William Price King

William takes us through the 1970s and 1980s as Dame Kiri Te Kanawa rose to international fame with some of her most popular performances.

Health Weight Reduction and Bruising.

This week we come to almost the final post in the Weight Reduction programme with one more to come tomorrow. Also Bruising.. a common complaint but if persistent could be a sign that there is something more serious going on.

Personal Stuff

This time of year I look at some of the statistics available for the blog and make some tweaks to take advantage of what I have learned. 2016 was interesting for a couple of reasons which resulted in a change to when I posted and the addition of a Google Translate button.. If you have never checked the countries where your readers come from… you may be surprised. Your reach may be wider than you thought!
