Salutations from Down-Under ... well, that's not strictly true ... I'm penning this missive from Lage in Germany, just 311ks from Amsterdam, but our home (Perth, Western Australia) is 14,134kms away (as the crow flies). I've seen that it appears I am the only Australian (or New Zealander for that ma...

Re: Sad news: Marianne Ihlen dies

Farewell to the lady so many of us grew up singing about, perhaps even, as I, lusting gently over as a teenage boy, studying that famous Hydra photo of Marianne in the chair, while I listened intently to Leonard sing. Hopefully a silver lining around the cloud, of just one week between diagnosis and...

Found! The Monkey and the Plywood ... Organ!!

So there we were in Bad Salzuflen - somewhere south west of Berlin and a little north east of Manhattan, when suddenly, there he was, violin nowhere to be seen, instead, Monkey with a plywood organ - Christmas you understand! - and a faithful companion to collect the royalties. You'll note Faithful ...

The Johnny Walker Wisdom Running High

A little off-topic, however this trial advertisement for Johnny Walker Whiskey is so astoundingly beautiful, I thought fellow Cohenistas would enjoy, the link herewith:

Re: New layout on the Forum

As I'd switched to Windows 10, for a minute or two, I thought the new layout was a Windows glitch, but eventually realised it was a new layout. I really like it, fresh is good! Thanks as always Jarkko and Rauli

You are very kind sir - I'm on malt whiskey rather than a roll! Otherwise I would never have had the courage to try painting again, let alone post!

Banjo Bopping into Hydra

Thought I'd get the pastels out, after a ten year hiatus, just to see ... all at sea! And I wasn't going to post the portrait of Lenny, as it's the first shot at doing a portrait and there are quite a few mistakes - if you're being kind, it COULD be The Man, however Ann tells me I should, so I have.

I know exactly what's involved in organising such events, not just in the planning, but also in the day to day execution, you really can't relax at any stage. Thanks also to the...
