Obituary Column

It’s turning into a bloody obituary column, this blog.

This morning I heard that a friend from school has died. One of the nicest lads I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet.

Sleep well, Bully. He wasn’t a bully, just in case you are wondering. That was his nickname. If ever a name didn’t suit a person this was it. He didn’t have an aggressive bone in his body.

I’m posting one of my favourite pieces of music in honour of Bully. It’s the Bizet’s Pearl Fisher’s Duet sung by Jussi Bjorling and Robert Merrill

Enjoy it just because it’s wonderful.



A Sunday treat for you

It’s my all time favourite piece of music.

It’s the Pearl Fishers duet with the wonderful Jussi Bjorling and Robert Merrill. No other version will do.

It’s a soothing panacea  for when I’m hurt and upset.

I always feel better after, calmer and more able to cope when I’ve listened to it and shed a few tears.
