Smorgasbord Blog Magazine Weekly Round Up – March 7th – 13th 2022 – Hits 1990, Mel Torme, Food Therapy, Book Reviews, Book extracts, Poetry, Personal Memories and Humour

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

I hope that you are all well.. I know that there is another cold front hitting the USA this weekend and also much of Europe which hopefully is the last gasp of winter. We seem to have escaped the cold thankfully but we have had all of March’s rain in the first week. Not much help for the farmers who are beginning to put their stock back out. High winds don’t help much.

All challenging but at least the majority of us are safe and not facing the daily horrors and dangers in Ukraine.

I am very grateful to only have to worry about getting my feet wet! At least the majority of the world is united in efforts to bring life saving supplies into the country and 500 metric tonnes left Ireland, mostly with volunteer drivers carrying aid this week. And in a gesture guaranteed to irritate those in powerful positions in the Russian diplomatic circles, the road where their embassy is located in Dublin is in the process of having it’s named changed to Independant Ukraine Road!  Not going to look good on any snail mail to the property or on their letterheads! It has passed council approval and just waiting for the residents of the road to sign off on it.

Goodness knows what this coming week will bring but we can only hope it is a positive outcome to talks which seem to be stalled at the moment.

On a personal level…. I have been out an about this week in quite an extraordinary way…

The collective members of Story Empire decided to give me a surprise party on Thursday with all eleven authors posting their own feature showcasing my blog and books.. What a wild and wonderful day and extremely grateful for the generous boost.

A mega promotional blitz by Story Empire: It is not often you get a day like this!

And a thank you to the lovely Marcia Meara who not only visited every post and left individual inspiring messages, but also shared her own post on Saturday Celebration Story Empire – International Day of Awesomeness

This week William Price King joined me for the Breakfast Show and hits from the 1990s followed up on Friday when William finished the Mel Torme story. Next week the amazing Dionne Warwick and her music.

Debby Gies with help from her neighbour continues to find great funnies for Laughter is the Best Medicine and tomorrow she begins a short series as part of The Travel Column on the best way to make sure you get the most from your luxury cruise.

Carol Taylor will be here on Wednesday for our Cook from Scratch series to prevent deficiencies.. and this week it is Vitamin B6 and some wonderful recipes to make sure you are obtaining the optimum amount of this essential vitamin.

  4. A fabulous round-up, Sally. I was so happy to participate in your International Day of Awesomeness, and am glad you enjoyed it. 🤗

    Gott say I really love the remaining of that road to Independant Ukraine Road, and that puppy/mama cat/kitten vid makes my heart melt. What a wonderful share!💗

  5. I love whoever came up with the new name for the road, Sally. That will give a twist to the screw for years to come, lol. There’s a lot of kind hearts out there doing what they can for Ukraine- it’s inspiring ❤

  6. Well, I hope you were touched by all of the genuine sentiments that came your way. All deserved, Sally! We got our first substantial rain in about two months last night. Boy, do we need it. Calfornia can take another drought year.
