I’ve not been to a musical since I saw the amazing MAMMA MIA about four years ago.
Thank you Stevie for bringing this to my attention and I am delighted to share it x
I got homesick for London, the city of my birth. I fancied a trip to the West End, and just had to write a review for a musical that Sam and I went to yesterday. Sam generally tolerates musicals for my sake, but even he said it was the best show he’d ever seen (and surprise, surprise, he never closed his eyes once and I even caught him clapping along with everybody else at one point). I have to agree with him that this is simply the best musical I have ever had the pleasure to see!
‘Tina’, based on the life of Tina Turner, is currently playing at the Aldwych Theatre in London’s Covent Garden and has not long opened, but I can tell you it’s going to run for years. Both the matinee and evening performances were sold out when we were there, and the members of the…

I’d heard rumours about this change in the world of WordPress… boo hoo.
Why have they decided to do this I wonder?
Those of you who’ve been with me for a little while know that, although I link to it frequently, I don’t rely on The Daily Post for inspiration. I have no shortage of inspiration in my own life about which to write. I value The Daily Post and Community Pool for their ability to expose me to new & different blogs and, most importantly, to connect me with other Bloggers.
Not needing inspiration upon my return to my blog today after a week’s forced hiatus, I had to find out about the demise of those two cherished forums from my friend Martha Kennedy’s awesome blog, I’m a Writer, Yes, I Am! (how’s that
shoulder hip doing, Martha?).
My immediate reaction was deep-burning, flame-colored rage. How can the Auttomaticians retire such an indispensable tool for outreach and connection, exposure and collaboration, and why would…

Check this blogger out for some photos of unusual places … the clever interpretation of the word prompt ‘liquid’ and now I view those landscapes as being not of this planet!!
There are two reasons people visit Yellowstone. One is to see the bears, and the other to watch Old Faithful. What they discover is that the bison are more fun to watch then searching for bears, and Old Faithful is only one of hundreds of geothermal features in the park. In fact, more then half of all geothermal features in the world are located in Yellowstone.
What is the difference between geysers and hot springs?
People are often surprised by the amount the diversity in the features. There are trickles and eruptions, and the colors? They will set rainbows aside.
Both the geysers and hot springs are fed from underground runoff. When the water warms beneath the surface from the magma, changes take place. It’s behavior is relative to temperature and what is beneath the surface. A geyser erupts when it bypasses an obstruction in it’s path, and a…
