Light a candle for my dear departed friends!

Light a candle or eat some grapes as soon as you can for my delightful friends from the Band Felpeyu <> who died in a car crash a few days ago.

Below is a message from Maree Robertson:

 Igor & Carlos were killed in a car accident yesterday morning. Other members of Felpeyu have minor injuries.
As you can see, they were important to me, mostly in the way they lived with great gusto, and made music with great love.
The world is less full of music today, and the folks in heaven - or wherever they are - just got very lucky :-)
 Make some music in their memory, sometime soon, and have  lots of fun doing it. That's what they taught me, and I  am grateful.


Maree and i were lucky enough to have the privellage of housing this wonderful band when they were in Bris-Vegas a few years ago.  Now i am doubly sad i did not make it to Spain to see them play in their home!

My thoughts are with the rest of the band and all their familes.

Happy Birthday Mum!!

For those of you who know Asoki.

You would be pleased to know she turned 45 a few days ago!!  Very exciting indeed; be sure to pass on your wishes!  As you know she did marvellously well bringing me up.  I am back from Gapuwiyak and am resting for a few weeks in Darwin.  A wonderful Belly Dance evening is planned for this very night; indeed i can hear the drums starting up right now!  very exciting.

For those of you good at maths; suspend your disbelief!  John Lennon said, "Life is what happens when you are doing other things".  And he had a good point there!

A week in Darwin! Am i Happy? Yess!

Well what an exciting change!  A week in the very city in which i live!  Good to get a moment or two to catch up with people and to be there for the Grand Opening of Happy Yess!  My involvement in the project ended up not being too big, but it is pleasing to know that my lovely 50s lamp and my globe lightshade and gels are being put to good use by the Happy Yess team:  Who have done a marvellous job on decorating the place.  I did not make it for Cinco Locos on Saturday night mostly as i suspected there may have been a riot at the 50 person limit dictated by the clubs license presently...
Finally caught up with Amy (Andrew was at work) and their lovely baby Georgia (who was fast asleep).  Had a cuppa on the Base formerly known as the HMAS Coonawarra and managed to actually not get searched or arrested; which was good.
Made a big dent on cleaning my room; but I really need one more session to be completely happy and ready for a new chapter in my life.  Looks like my potential overseas trip won;t be happening in the holidays after all so this will help get things sorted in Darwin.  Also it will mean i can finally catch up with all the people i've been missing in Darwin.. Most exciting!
O!  Big congratulations to Anna and David for the birth of their wippersnapper: Ruby!  And congratulations to Sally on her big step!!
But first!  Three weeks in Gapuwiyak!  Tally ho!
