Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Weekly Round Up – 18th to 24th July 2022 – Hits 1999, Cuba, Nina Simone, Culinary letter ‘C’, stories, podcast, reviews, health and humour.

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

I hope those of you who were suffering from the heat wave and added risks of wildfires are now finding things much cooler. We are back to our seasonal temperatures and have had some welcome rain the last couple of days which is good news for the farmers. They have worked overtime in the last two weeks to get their fields mown and baled but they need a new growth now for stock for the rest of the summer.

The outside of the house is looking great with its new coat of grey and white paint with just the back of the house needing another coat.

I am spending August on some work related projects for the autumn.. a new short story collection, poetry collection and for early next year an updated and Ebook version of my family health manual Just Food For Health, which at 360 pages in the print version is going to take a bit of time.  I have stocked the blog and whilst not around quite as much on social media business will carry on as usual.

Thanks to my friends William Price King and Debby Gies for their music and humour contributions this week and you can find out more about them on their own sites. .

William Price King joined me on The Breakfast show this week for the second part of the hits from 1999 and for the next part of the new series about the legend Nina Simone. William begins his usual summer break until September with his family but he has left me well stocked with his selections for the Breakfast Show and also his posts on the music legends..You can also find William – Blog– IMPROVISATION– William Price King on Tumblr

Debby Gies took us to Cuba on Monday for an exploration of this island of music, dancing and history.. Over on her blog you can you can catch up with her posts including her Sunday review for My Darling Son by Martha Perez, her own very powerful poem in response to Colleen Chesebro’s challenge this week, her July writer’s tips and a look at authors from the past who seemed to have had a precognition of how the future would unfold.

  1. So sorry for all of those who have had to endure extreme heat. The west coast of the United States is going to heat up most of next week. With wildfires already burning in Yosemite, this is not a good sign.

    Thanks for another smashing week of education and entertainment.
