Chanson de la Semaine

To avoid repeating myself on a weekly basis and lose the interest of our regular fan, I will point you towards Week 68 in the Archive for an explanation of why I am suddenly featuring a piece of music each week. Incidentally, the Archive Pics with a little audio icon on them are the ones which will have this little feature..beginning, of course, with Week 68.

I mentioned 'The Tables' last week, which was a project commisioned by the BBC to create a spoof lost Beatles album. Anyway I featured one of the songs, but sung by me. This week is the turn of Macca, otherwise known as Owen, singing a little dittie circa 1965 called: 'I Can't Help Myself'.

You've probably already seen a blue or yellow band at the top of the page asking if you want to run this program and showing a 'Run Active X' tab. Click on that and then click on 'Run' and a little CD player should open below the song title. Press Play, Stop or Whatever.

I Can't Help Myself

Week 71
The Garden Wall

The wall still continues and more importantly the garden border has now been turned over. There was a lot of stones but the soil is really good, friable, as they say here and in the UK. I'm in the process of building the lizard hotel, which is a dry stone wall with clay pipe tunnels leading to holes in the main wall. I've put in some comparison shots for befores and afters.


I found what looks like a shawl pin in the process of digging the border. I can't find any examples online, but I do know it's not a sardine can key.
