World Karaoke Championship…..

The world Karaoke championships are being held in Russia… hmm.. unfortunately I can’t quite see the difference between this and the X-factor type stuff….. except that this offers a recording deal, lots of dosh, the chance to ‘become a singer in my future life’ as one of the performers put it…..and of course, a prize of one (ten?) million dumplings…. although a few of the contenders seem to be already well endowed with their own dumplings, as Benny Hill might have put it….. and I don’t mean only the females.

Bentley day……

Yesterday David and Cynthia turned up in this beautiful beast. You CANNOT travel in  a car like this without smiling like an idiot: people wave, they cheer, it’s a lovely experience…. it’s a celebration of something ….. something great!!! Thanks, guys!
