Well I’ve seen no sign of the Wren for a few days so thinking ill soon be able to crack on and paint the rusty bits in the shed ..I was up there yesterday..a strange buzzing sound coming from inside shed…bumble bees have decided to take up residence in an old wrens nest!..I guess It’s better than having a wasps nest..and they are the gardeners friend pollinating the plants..supposedly non aggressive as well unless you interfere with it ..or ..breathe on it apparently…yet more wearing of face masks…or hold my breath when I go in the shed..I’ll buzz off now..as Arthur Askey used to say..
When Cats was shown last weekend, Andrew Lloyd Webber told us it was the last of his musicals to go out for free on YouTube, much to the disappointment of many who have been enjoying this weekly treat.
The Good News this week is that although that was the last Lloyd Webber show, this initiative is continuing with musicals each Friday – starting with a Rogers and Hammerstein classic. Grammy Award-winning music superstar Carrie Underwood stars in “The Sound of Music Live!” The three-hour telecast of the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical classic also features TV and stage star Stephen Moyer as well as Tony Award winners Audra McDonald, Christian Borle and Laura Benanti.
It will be streaming from 7pm, and then available for 48 hours here
