David, we are what we were in our youth, mine was dance music, Henry Hall, Glen Miller, all the big bands even Victor Sylvester of course the classical music I played on piano. The modern stuff never struck a chord with me though my Daughters made my ears ache with it. My gardening was often the only way to escape the cacophony gardening in the dark on cold winter nights not recommended .

The halcyon days we are having in the NE these last weeks, sitting in the sun listening to gentle country style music, U tube has masses of music so choice, what gets posted on here is not doing it for me. The old top of the pops that BBC have been pushing lately show me why I do not like it.

Morning in the garden potting on, nice sunshine cold wind, penalty for living next to the North Sea.

Frank.

Hi, Frank good to see you still around.

 "Hi David, still living your wild child days then musically"....not so sure about that, Frank. I must have been knocking-on 40 when Dire Straits were belting out 'Walk of Life'. 

Told you I wasn't a teenager!

Wish Monty would divulge how many gardeners he has working for him at Longmeadow I am finding my half acre of fruit, veg and herbaceous borders hard work with the coming of old age. Could do with hints on how to make it easier!
Big Dreams Small Spaces - Nah, Big Spaces Less Work more like it

 

I agree, I would appreciate a little more transparency on this point....especially given the run-down state of the place when he first took over GW.
