Smorgasbord Weekly Round Up – Evolution, Rebellion and The Colour of Life

It is a wonderfully sunny day and I have enjoyed the morning in the sun.. but before I head off to help with clearing more trees… it is time for a round up of the guests and posts this week.

I have said many times before that this blog is a collaborative effort and every time you visit and like, comment and share you are contributing. Please do not be shy and it would be great if you would put the link to your latest post in the comments section. I do have the blogger daily Monday to Friday and I am addicted to the reblog button so I will share one way or another. But, it also introduces you to the other readers who have popped in.

I like to think of this blog as the water cooler at the office and I like nothing more when I see a conversation striking up between two people who have never met before.

I have a pile of pine branches to strip so that they can go through the mulcher..so without further ado.

My thanks to William Price King and Paul Andruss for their outstanding contributions…they provide such wonderful posts and I am so grateful for their continued support.

William Price King Meets some Legends

Although Dame Shirley Bassey has performed some sell out concerts and been featured in television specials in the last 17 years she is semi-retired so we chose to leave her career at the point where she received her honour.

This coming week we take a small break but there will be a recap post on the series so far including jazz, classical and contemporary with some of the stand out performances. The following week we will begin the new series on the iconic musician and singer.. Mr. Stevie Wonder.

Writer in Residence Extra with Paul Andruss

This week I featured one of a series of posts on the evolution of mankind from Paul’s archives on his own blog. I am sure you will enjoy as much as I did, especially our close bond with rats.

The Colour of Life by Geoff Cronin

Two more chapters from my father-in-laws memoirs and this week some canny business sense at the mobile cinema and the market place.

Personal stuff

Hugh Roberts honoured me by making What’s in a Name his book of the month.. A lovely gesture and one that is much appreciated. https://hughsviewsandnews.com/2017/05/01/book-of-the-month-whats-in-a-name-by-sally-cronin-sgc58/

Poetry

As I delve back into my archive of poems written from my teens onwards it amuses me to see what emotional turmoil I put myself through… and others.

This poem was written when I was sixteen following a trip to the West Country with my sister Diana.. as you can see I was the cat.. and I was away!

Rebellion in Frome by Sally Cronin

My mother said no, that while I was home
That my ears should stay pristine
But away from her, in far distant Frome
I laughed at being sixteen
