"OMG" what on earth are you lot talking about?
Music my lovely people is Vienna, Handel, Mozart Wagner, or if letting the hair down Glen Miller, Bing Crosby, Chick Henderson, Tauber, Henry Hall.
All the above whilst relaxing not supposedly working in the garden with free bird song, the noise of continuous mobile phone tunes and the chatter of people who seem to need to be in continuous communication with some one, "hi, yer all right, yeh just weeding" NO YOU ARE NOT, you are gassing on the phone and disturbing the old chap next door, "gerroffff", who on earth needs noise when as some one pointed out we have the sound of strimmers, lawn mowers and chain saws.
Once we could hear the mooing of the animals in the fields, the chirrup of the insects buzzing of bees, all in the past overtaken by three chords on loud electrical ear busters in the hands of kids who never studied music as we all did as kids.
Driven in by the racket I at times ease my tensed up feelings by playing my Piano and yes you guessed it Vienna is the music to do that.
Is it possible to have a forced silence for at least an hour say on Sundays, no phones, no I-poddi thingees and no old radios in the greenhouse please. Oh the joy of that peace.
Frank, hope this does not upset people "err" or do I.
