Quacking, squawking and yelling

Oh – what a babble of quacking, squawking and yelling that “the sky is falling down” by all our politicians and main stream media in the UK – it makes one sick! Continue reading

Today’s lesson on religion that I enjoyed – Spong

This Furlong, is not a Christian. But my sister and I, of all the Furlongs in the Furlong family, were brought up as Christians. I went to a Catholic School. We know more about “being christian” than the Furlong children who were brought up in a secular family – aka – heathens! Continue reading

The Eurovision Shouting Contest

What the hell is wrong with music nowadays!

No subtle chords, transitions, instruments or arrangements.

Death by adoration

The Furlong oldies in this house have always enjoyed the voice and skill of Amy Winehouse.

We’ve just watched her story on TV, made up of real footage. It was most moving.

She just wanted to sing in small jazz-clubs – but she was made a star. A profitable star. And the press never left her alone. They knew she was the celebrity-news people craved because people loved her.

“If I could make it all go away, so I could walk the street again, I would”

She was killed by adoration, I think.

Here’s Amy working….
