Jimbo & Leabo got me a cute #birthday card a couple years back. I think I posted a vid of the card in all its songful splendor, but I just came across this wonderful audioboo I have no idea why I didn't post it. (Just imagine pulling a gnome out if a card & it singing to you... well... to me.)...

ONE MAN WOULD BECOME A LEGEND
The young boy abandoned without a tribe on the harsh Mongolian plains faced almost certain death. Hunted and alone, he dreamed first of revenge against his enemies. In time, he would unite the great tribes, forming one nation under the sky. He would be the father to that nation. He would be Genghis Khan.

Robert Llewellyn writes under a rack of solar panels in Gloucestershire, and News from Gardenia is his fifth work of fiction.
News From Gardenia is a science fiction novel; a man called Gavin Meckler who was born in 1979 arrives 200 years into the future where he discovers a world that is recognisable and yet utterly different. It’s a place where it’s possible to travel from one side of the world to the other in a matter of minutes without burning fuel, but it’s also a place where everyone is a gardener because that’s how they can be sure to eat.
Robert Llewellyn wrote his first novel at the age of twelve. By the time he’d published The Man on Platform 5 (his first grown-up work of fiction), thirty years had passed. In the intervening period he’d worked as an artist’s model, a bespoke shoemaker, a tree surgeon, a screen- writer, a comedian, actor and TV presenter.

Welcome to the audiobook of 'The Man in the Rubber Mask.' The book was first published in 1994, it has now been updated, covering series 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - Back to Earth and Red Dwarf X.
It tells the story of how we made the series, what went on behind the scenes and how 4 battered old space bums made an extraordinary come back after many years lost in deep space.

This was from over a year ago. One of my friends (Diana) buys boardgames by weight. While a bunch of us were hanging out, we tried playing this game. Diana bailed to watch season one of #GameofThrones on her laptop leaving me, Jess, Dawn & Wes to play Diana's new game. It sucked. I have no idea...
After running errands one day, I grabbed some lunch, parked my car in the shade, rolled the windows down - relaxing with some food, enjoying the breeze and beautiful weather. This song came on the radio. The Kinks always put me in a good mood. #happymaking
I had posted a pic pun on my friend Jess's FB wall - an image of an owl winking at you with the caption "I've been thinking of things to do with you OWL night long" - which immediately made me think if this song. So on the way to see my friends Kathy, Steve & Geoff for Dusty's World, this song...
