Elevated To Greater Heights

I was not sure about what to pick on this them of Elevator Music, but I am presuming it is about chilling out music. Is there anything as relaxing as “Fields Of Gold”? Sting of course deserves all credit for the song itself, and although I am not a huge fan of his music (my…

Looking For Heaven

I thought I had picked a song that featured the word “heaven”, but it turns out that it also has “hell”. If you are not sure who Florence + The Machine are, then scroll right down to the bottom of this post first for one incredible introduction to them. Florence is a performer at large!…

I’ll Fix It For Us

Jim asked us to pick a song with either fix or make in it. Avoiding the obvious Coldplay track, I decided to go with Pink. She’s been a phenomenon on the music scene and she has a legacy of impactful songs. This is probably my favourite from Pink. I vividly remember it coming on the…

Taking A Break

I am grateful for all the bloggers who have popped by to read my posts and liked or commented on them. It’s an interesting little hobby – this blogging business. Just thought I would drop a post in now to explain we had a sudden bereavement in the family – not covid – but a…

No More Farewell

Advertising That Works On Me

I think I have had the occasional Estrella beer. I don’t remember buying it in supermarkets, but I am sure it has been the house beer in some restaurants I have been to. But now, their latest marketing commercial has hooked me. Now I will definitely clock “Estrella” on any drinks menu, and if I…

Boredom

I was taking part in a survey last week that had a lot of questions coping throughout the Pandemic. I presumed it was all about mental health at first, but later on it transpired it was more about entertainment – the nature of the questions changed sharply. A couple of questions were related to boredom…
