Today picture is of three CD’s that I’m currently listening to.

  1. The Best of Peter Green’s Fleetwood Man, if you can take a listen to a track titled “Man of the World”, it moves me every time, what else could Peter Green achieved?.
  2. George Michael Songs from the Last Century, he covers some famous songs, but his cover of Roxanne by The Police is well worth a listen to.
  3. Martin Freeman and Eddie Piller Present Jazz on the Corner, the album is still growing on me.

Tonight, is a sad night for me, because I met up with a colleague from work for a beer, something to eat and a chat. Soon our paths are going to go in different directions. I owe a huge debt of gratitude to George for taking me under his wing when I first joined the Hospice, he has patiently and un-selfishly taught me everything he knows about the Hospice. The one thing that I am determined to do is keep in-touch with him.

Day three at the Steam Fair, the second day the fair is open to the public. I’ve been very busy manning the radio and chatting to the public. I managed to slip out and take a couple of pictures. I couldn’t decide which one to choose so I added a couple instead.

The picture is of another hobby or pastime it’s reading, I try to read as much as I can. It’s mainly military history. The book I’m currently reading now is First Man In, Leading from the front by Ant Middleton. Although Ant Middleton was a Special Services soldier, his main claim to fame is that he appeared in Channel 4’s TV series “SAS: Who dares Wins”. The TV series features ex Special service soliders taking men off the street putting them through the same Special Services training, to see if they had what it takes to become a Special Service soldier. I only watched the first series. The book not only tells about his life and career store, but also has motivational lessons within and at the end of each chapter, a bit unusual, but good reading for me at the moment.

Hopefully over the weekend I will be able to feature more interesting pictures, more of that tomorrow.
