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
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
What the hell is wrong with music nowadays!
No subtle chords, transitions, instruments or arrangements.
Or haunting refrains.
No music required.
Notes required – about three.
Inspiration required – none.
These old Furlongs have just watched a TV program about germs!

Here’s Amy working….
At the balls.
Beautiful women, stunning clothes – fairytale, actually. Continue reading
