Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Weekly Round Up – 7th- 13th November – Remembrance, Anniversary, 1982 Hits, Book reviews, Guest Bloggers, Health and Laughter

Welcome to the round up of posts you might have missed on Smorgasbord this week.

Hope that you are all staying safe as cases seem to be spiralling upwards in most of our countries. Whispers of a Christmas lockdown here in Ireland seems to be gathering momentum and it might be necessary but certainly sad for those who were looking forward to finally seeing their loved ones around the Christmas dinner table at last.

On the homefront nothing much to report.. but it is our Wedding Anniversary on Monday.. 41 years… and rather than socially distance in a restaurant sipping Champagne through our masks.. we are going to have a rather Smorgasbord inspired meal of our favourite things….

We don’t drink much these days but a bottle of Cava will be chilled and accompanied by Tempura Prawns, Spring Rolls, Crispy Duck and Spare Ribs and followed by mini-eclairs. So if you don’t see much of me around the usual haunts on Monday afternoon, you will know why!

This week as always William Price King selected some great music for the Breakfast Show… we hope you enjoyed the selection.. Debby Gies and Daniel Kemp kept us laughing.. And thank you too for joining us and sharing the posts… it is much appreciated.

Patty and her guide dog Blue. Patty has her hair tied back in a low ponytail and rests her right hand on Blue's head. She wears a white shirt with a pink and purple butterfly on the front and light blue shorts. Blue is a handsome black lab. He wears a brown leather harness with a handle attached to the back and is smiling at the camera as he sits in front of Patty. In the background is a brick building with white, windowed doors and a flowerpot overflowing with pink and yellow blooms.
