We have just arrived home from a marvellous production of The Marriage of Figaro at the wonderful Theatre Royal. Unplanned meetings with friends, then out into the summer night and lights of Grey Street - voted the best street in Britain
From "one people": Music and visions of peace 2006 - a series of 11 events designed to promote peace and unity, between the people's of Israel and Palestine. These events are healthy events (non smoking) in peoples houses and communities in and around Brighton.
We liked it so much last year and the year before that - so we're off again tomorrow to Hara's in Kephalonia. This will be our sixth time on the island. Swimming, lying in the shade, lots of reading, eating wonderful vegetarian Greek food - and this year, listening to all the new music Simon set up for me on my iPod, with the great speakers that he gave me for my birthday.
If you want a laugh listen to an mp3 found on the weblog of a Slovenian writer Michael Manske who has just won a weblog award: http://www.carniola.org/
He writes: "To celebrate Slovenia ratifying the EU constitution yesterday, I dug up an old mp3 from last May. It features Austrian and Slovenian brass bands performing the European anthem together at the border. The European anthem, if you don't know, is an extract from Beethoven's 9th symphony, and was officially adopted by the EU in 1985. The occasion of this performance was Slovenia's entry into the European Union on May 1, 2004."
