That egg was from Tim to Francis, theres got to be one for Mal somewhere. One for Gayle, whose name has been changed to protect her identity. Better make that one easy. JM .. The Suet pudding. Julia. Given my advancing years I could probably even hide one for myself.

And today is about the rolling away of a rock.

And for all of you, everywhere. Be safe, come back alive. And pray

Good Friday …

G’day … and a happy Easter.

Because of the piece of music I am about to post I am thinking of a friend that had a very profound influence on my musical education and that I miss a great deal. One day we were discussing god.

Meantime, get your hands off my super, you thieving bitch.
