Kaleidoscope's current Top 10
The Lake District
My favourite piece of the planet and looking forward to getting back there later in September. How lucky the local people there are to have the fells on their doorstep every day!
Loving them this year! Trying very hard to identify what I see and using a very good app called Picture This.
Thomas Newman's music
The genius movie music man - from Phenomenon, The Horse Whisperer, Meet Joe Black, The Green Mile,
Road to Perdition to Finding Nemo, WALL-E, Revolutionary Road, Scent of a Woman, The Help, Skyfall , 1917
and, of course, The Shawshank Redemption, Newman has made movies greater for so long. I must listen to his music almost every day.
Nakhane (featuring - Anohni) - New Brighton
Loving this song - on the soundtrack for the Apple TV+ series Little America.
Covid Vaccine Rollout
Incredible achievement NHS - and still rolling.
Catch everything you can by this academic, writer and broadcaster - one of the UK's best minds
The West Wing... again
Working my way once more through the best TV series ever made. What a fabulous screen writer Aaron Sorkin is and what a brilliant cast was brought together for the show.
Really enjoy his cooking shows, especially his Saturday morning programme. Always makes the cooking look easy and interesting. Have learned a lot from watching him.
Louis Macneice's poems
Picked up my collection again the other day and yet again hooked. Something about his poems that hit to the heart.
Current, but constant , favourite is Meeting Point.
My New Electric Bike
Brilliant! That extra electric push goes to another level.
