Monday Blues? Good!
Good morning to bloggers all, wherever you may be. I hope the weekend was a fine one. I took it upon myself to try one of Nigel's recent recipes- the superfood chicken and smoothie curry one from the book by Gurpareet Bains. Finding Nigella seeds proved too much even for out lovely smart supermarket that sells that kind of thing. It wasn't helped by the fact that I had no idea what they look like and that the 'herbs and spices manager' had never seen them either. So what's a chap to do? Obviously ring Nigel! He was about to talk about cheese somewhere but caught him in time for him to tell me that black onion seeds are just as good. Of course they are. Anyway the result was pretty fine if fiery and everyone declared themselves impressed (but they would wouldn't they). Then we let off a few fireworks around the estate, finding the 'retire 25 metres' instruction a tad difficult as it meant we had to congregate in the hall to watch what was happening in the garden. I tried to inform the younger members present about jumping jacks and bangers that used to be sold here but are now banned-they feigned interest and went to a party. And that was that.
Today! We welcome multi-million selling blues/rock guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd to Drivetime. He doesn't read music, is completely self taught and his father in law is Mel Gibson! He has been nominated for 5 Grammy awards and opened for the likes of The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and The Eagles. He is very welcome to come in, noodle around with his guitar and help prepare the way for Paul Jones at 7.
Tunes today for the troubled EURO. Yes it's time to bend your minds to that most talked about currency and work out some songs that might-at a pinch-fit snugly into its grasp. I know you'll enjoy the task...
Have a enthusiastic and positive Monday, see you after 5
