Richard Griffiths, a great actor of stage and screen, has died aged 65 following complications following heart surgery. Crap news.

I just think an apostrophe changes meaning, Pauls is multiple Paul's, it's and its are completely different meanings. I've got used to the lack of apostrophe, just saying I don't think it's a good thing to lose it overall as it makes a difference.

Disturbing news, the South African president has asked us to pray for Nelson Mandela. A non-routine hospital admission and this. I am fearing the worse. Whether our prayers work this time, we're obviously getting near to goodbye. I am on the verge of tears even thinking of a world without him. Bless you, Madiba.

 

I'd hate to say goodbye to him. He's such an amazing man.

He played Harry Potter's uncle, didn't he? That's sad, and pretty young too. 

 

OH GUYS I'M SO HAPPY. I got my marks from exam week back and they were all good! Even the one for Geography! 

And I found a job. At the Lidl! (a supermarket) It's a function in which I do..everything! I'll stack shelves, I'll be a cashier too. I had the interview last Monday and Tuesday I already heard they were enthousiastic and wanted to give it a try. They said I came across as a enthousiastic and confident girl. ahdn_ringo_09So apparently I'm very good at acting, 'cause I'm actually very insecure.

The only thing was that I had also applied for a job at the garden center for an assistent at the garden furniture and later for the Christmas decoration department, which made me enthousiastic because I am practically Christmas, and I had my second job interview for that today, but I couldn't stretch the signing of the Lidl contract long enough to find out whether I'd be hired at the garden center or not. The function at the garden center was more appealing to me, but hey, at least I got a decent job now. 

And then I bought a jacket I already wanted for a looong time with 50% off.

Everything seems to be going so great lately!

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8  :) Glad to hear things are going well.

Me, on the other hand... well, I'm on vacation from school for Easter, but they gave us a truckload of homework to make up for the missed class time. :(

Bonus = more time spent online (my textbooks are online) = more Fab Forum! :)

I'll get my report on my birthday. Yay. The good thing is that it's the last one and that it's very good, the bad thing is that it's at 19.15, so I can't have a big diner and my family can't come to visit and stuff like that :S It was actually at the 25th, but they changed it to the 22nd -.- It's also exam information so I can't miss it.

 

So how are you guys going to celebrate Easter? I've always wondered how they do that in other countries and how other people in general celebrate it.

My mother's side of the family will all go to my aunt's house. We'll have a big dinner, and there will probably be an Easter egg hunt for the younger kids. Nothing too special, but it's still always fun. :)

I think the remakes on GMRtB are dire pieces of CRAP that were entirely pointless and added nothing to the film. I meant to type that George being in it would have been a big improvent (one reason being it's George, another his sense of humour would have added a lot - if given a chance) and helped the film, much as his appearance in Ognir Ratts achieved the same thing. Otherwise add a good script & plot, losing a load of the dreadful scenes that bog the film down, bringing in an ending that wasnt so bad and annoying (it was all a dream - piss off, ive wasted 85 odd minutes on this crap for it all being a shit dream!!), and spending time to write songs that were good, not spectacular but neither shit remakes or shit new crap like No Values and Not Such a Bad Boy that took Paul all of 2 minutes to write whilst blowing his nose. The only good thing about GMRtB is No More Lonely Nights; Paul could have saved us, and himself, the time and money by releasing that one song the way it was - as a single. May have also helped his career and reputation in the 80's such as the reception the film got , sadly this marked a notable decline in the quality of his output in the mid-80's that had been suggested with the Pipes Of Peace LP.

 

On a different matter have the bbc news on and the reporter in Cyprus is walking about finding it difficult to find people who speak English (maybe they are blanking him), and upon finding someone who can speak Broken English asking how much money they are taking out of the bank. with a crowd around them, and has it been difficult taking money out of the banks since they have been closed?

I liked the version of Silly Love Songs especially with 2/3 of TOTO in it plus that funky bass solo.

Today, it's a balmy, palmy spring day in March, and it's not even April yet.

Perfect weather to play my favorite song about the month of March, Waters of March (written by the great Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos "Tom" Jobim, reinterpreted winsomely by Sergio Mendes and his "Brasil 66" band -- renamed "Brasil 88" for the 1980s):

 

A stick a stone

it's the end of the road

it's the rest of a stump

it's a little alone

it's a sliver of glass

it is life, it's the sun,

it is night, it is death,

it's a trap, it's a gun.

The oak when it blooms,

a fox in the brush,

the knot in the wood,

the song of the thrush.

The wood of the wind,

a cliff, a fall, a scratch, a lump -- it is nothing at all.

It's the wind blowing free,

it's the end of the slope,

it's a beam, it's a void,

it's a hunch, it's a hope:

And the riverbank talks,

of the waters of March,

it's the end of all strain,

it's the joy in your heart.

* * *

The foot, the ground,

the flesh and the bone,

the beat of the road,

a slingshot stone.

A fish, a flash!

A silvery glow...

A fight, a bet,

the range of a bow.

The bed of the well,

the end of the line,

the dismay in the face,

it's a loss, it's a find.

A spear, a spike, a point, a nail, a drip, a drop:

the end of the tale.

A truckload of bricks in the soft morning light,

the sound of a shot in the dead of the night.

A mile, a must, a thrust, a bump,

it's a girl, it's a rhyme, it's a cold, it's the mumps.

The plan of the house, the body in bed,

and the car that got stuck -- it's the mud, it's the mud!

A float, a drift!  A flight, a wing!

A hawk, a quail, the promise of spring:

And the riverbank talks,

of the waters of March,

it's the end of all strain,

it's the joy in your heart.

* * *

[electric piano interlude]

A snake, a stick!

It is John, it is Joe,

it's the thorn in your hand and the cut in your toe.

A point, a grain, a bee, a bite,

a blink, a buzzard, a sudden stroke of night.

A pass in the mountains,

a horse and a mule,

in the distance the shelves rode three shadows of blue.

And the riverbank talks,

of the waters of March,

it's the promise of life,

in your heart, in your heart.

* * *

A stick, a stone,

the end of the load,

the ash of a log,

a lonesome road.

A sliver of glass,

a life, the sun,

a night, a death,

the end of the run.

And the riverbank talks,

of the waters of March,

it's the end of all strain,

it's the joy in your heart................

EH YAH, BA DA-DA

Remember all those in the UK to put your clocks forward by 1 hour tonight (technically they go forward at 1am on sunday morning but people might be asleep at that point) - and anywhere else that moves their clock forward by 1 hour tonight.a-hard-days-night-john-5

This is the first year that we're not going to do anything because my mom is working and my dad has to take my sister's boyfriend to the airport at lunchtime so I'll be alone for most of the day. I won't even have an Easter egg because nobody has had time to go to a supermarket in ages, we've been living off cupboard food.... :(

Sounds really miserable when I type it out. Hope everybody else has a happy Easter! :D

Paul Williams, founder of Crawdaddy! magazine, author, noted rock critic, lost his fight against early-onset Alzheimer's on 27 March at the age of 64. His wife, the singer/songwriter Cindy Lee Berryhill, said on Facebook, that he, "passed away last night 10:30pm PST while his oldest son was holding his hand and by his side. It was a gentle and peaceful passing." I loved his books on Dylan, particularly the three Performing Artist volumes. He taught me much about what was worth listening to, what was worth seeking out. His voice and his writing will be missed.

 I think it's Ted or Teddy. I'm not sure, though.

 

EDIT: This is from the thread that Gerell posted the link to:

Joe said

Theo Pepper M G (the M is Ellie's maiden name and the G is mine) was born on Monday at 9.56am, weighing 8lb 5oz. He's known as Ted or Teddy, and Pepper is for Sgt Pepper (what, did you think we wouldn't have a Beatles reference?). He's a good-looking young fella.

Does anybody have any idea why a computer mouse's scrolling wheel would scroll correctly, and then only scroll down even when I'm trying to scroll up, and fluctuate between working and only scrolling down?

No, maybe you need to re-grease the wheel thing in it?
