New Year's Greetings to Everyone.
An Australian Greek Friend shared the delightful tit-bit that in serif script 2013 viewed in the mirror reads ԐrOS,the Greek God of love...peace to all 

Today's programme did not intentionally aim to highlight some of our wonderful women performers but as the music progressed  that is what it ended up being...a showcase of our wonderful Australian female talent ... and because of lack of time many more were sadly unable to be played...next time next time, the year has only just started!

The Gypsy Jack Boggle Show is now also on
Facebook as Thegypsyjack Boggleshow

Whether you are a listener, a performer or just a

well-wisher please come and befriend us.

The show already has some wonderful friends.

Why don’t you also become one.

I particularly hope that some of the overseas readers
of the blog will come forward and say hello.
I notice that we have in the last week had viewers from
many places including China, Russia, USA, and Turkey to name but a few.

Our opening theme song from the Spinners was not idly
chosen....we are all part of the family of man no matter
where we live, our nationality or the hue of our skin....

Hello and Welcome.

Next Sunday – Celtic Theme –

have a fffolking good week”.

Tune in or chew your own ears off.

Good News & praise due to Australia Post who delivered an incorrectly addressed New Year's card. All they had to go on was my name,unit & street number together with the incorrectly spelt street name and state.

Here are some more photographs of our river, despite the encroaching heat still full of water.

Darned things would not stay motionless long enough for the phone to photograph them in focus! Looks good in 3D though.

Compare to the above and October 2012 photograph and note how the grass is drying off. The water is not reflecting the blue either. Can't have it perfect all the time.
