Listening to........

Right now I'm loving 'Don't Give Up' sung by Pink & John Legend on Herbie Hancock 'The Imagine Project'

...... an unprecedented international recording and film project featuring collaborations between music legend Herbie Hancock and a dozen superstars from every region of the planet. It utilizes the universal language of music to express its central themes of peace and global responsibility. The Imagine Project embodies an extraordinary lineup of international superstars from all corners of the world. Artists include Dave Matthews, Anoushka Shankar, Jeff Beck, The Chieftains, John Legend, India Arie, Seal, Pink, Juanes, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Chaka Khan, K'Naan, Wayne Shorter, James Morrison, and Lisa Hannigan. The album and film stands, on one level, as powerful testaments for the goals of world peace, humanity and tolerance, and respect for our planet, but The Imagine Project shall remain at its core, entertainment content that is creatively and emotionally deeply fulfulling.

The Wednesday Wotsit

"Son, can you play me a memory
I'm not really sure how it goes
But it's sad and it's sweet and I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man's clothes." Billy Joel.

Young Kookaburra, sitting on (next doors) nasty fence instead of the beautiful old gum tree. Keeps getting chased by Wattle birds.

New tricks for the new plot. White cabbage butterfly cut from milk cartons staking out their territory & using picnic spoons as a means of lifting out little seedlings (handles marked with seedling name).
