I can’t believe the speed the days are going, we are what seems like, fully into May and its almost the summer…..Phew- having said that weather was a mixed bag today.
Twofers today came from the Grand old fathers of Rock n Roll….The Rolling Stones, we played ‘Satisfaction’ and my personal favourite ‘Gimme Shelter’.
Last week to my amusement, I discovered a message on my answer phone, which was basically a private conversation between two member of a call centre, who didn’t realise my phone had answered their call and was recording them. Be warned that he does say Bloody a few times, however this piece is a turn on the heads of the tag ‘We may record your call / conversations for training’ …..so methinks more training is in order here, have a listen;
