Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to you all!

Thought some of you might be interested in Lesley’s new venture over on Etsy

Est! Est! Est!To begin with Lesley’s offering the possibility of receiving real mail that doesn’t come in envelopes with windows in, and doesn’t involve someone trying to sell you something you don’t need – at a bargain price.

Nope, we’re talking illustrated letters about life in Italy – the culture, the food the wine, the wonderful and the idiosyncratic!!


There’s also the Foodie Letters– I’m sure it’ll come as no surprise that we’re kinda foodies….. Not food snobs…. But people who like cooking and eating good food. The Foodie letters are recipes that we’ve discovered, been given, and always road-tested.


Solid Blues . . . .



We’ve only done one rehearsal and it appears the drummer has already been replaced . . . . solidblues026
