Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Weekly Round up July 25th – 31st July 2022 – Hits 2000, Nina Simone, Waterford, History, Podcast, Book Reviews, Summer Bookfair, Health and Humour

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

I hope that you have had a good week.  I know some of you are on holiday either at home or abroad and enjoying different surroundings. Hopefully not too long in the airport and reunited with your luggage. The UK is definitely in a mess in that regard and the strikes don’t help. Whilst it certainly gets the attention of the media, it seems that the only people who suffer are those ordinary citizens trying to get to work or take their families on well earned breaks. I am all for fair wages for a days work, but when a train driver is earning almost three times more than a nurse and considerably more than a fireman, it does seem a little aggresive. Whilst the leadership of the UK is in flux I suppose it is seen as an opportunity to cause as much chaos as possible.

On the home front, rain has caused a stoppage of work for the main contractor. To be honest he has painted three quarters of the outside of the house including all the window surrounds and corner stones in white and it looks amazing. I am quite happy that he has to take a break from climbing ladders after 12 days solid. There are some inside jobs that need attention so you can rest assured he won’t be wasting any time!

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 is on 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

  2. What a strange week as my computer/ internet decided to play up.
    I wondered if I had upset someone?
    Well not really
    I think maybe my internet went on holiday with William as I missed the Saturday music.
    But on a positive note, all is well.
    Another great week of posts to read.

    And ! Woo hoo!
    England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 lionesses did what the men couldn’t do.
    Okay 👌 I’m a keen advocate of equality and certainly enjoyed the women’s football. (And why not?)

  3. Sal, I know the UK airports are in chaos, but hey, our Toronto airport has recently been rated the WORST airport in the WORLD. So there’s that! Lol. Thanks again for another wonderful week, and thank you for sharing my posts this week. Looking forward to my new series here. Hugs ❤ xx
