Seasons Greetings! I had an exciting outing with my mum to a carol concert at the Royal Opera House and we got to join in on a few of them. If you're feeling festive try a chrimbo quiz or have a sing along to Good King Wenceslas...

Everybody sings this bit

Good King Wenceslas looked out
On the feast of Stephen
When the snow lay round about
Deep and crisp and even
Brightly shone the moon that night
Though the frost was cruel
When a poor man came in sight
Gath'ring winter fuel

"Hither, page, and stand by me
If thou know'st it, telling
Yonder peasant, who is he?
Where and what his dwelling?"

"Sire, he lives a good league hence
Underneath the mountain
Right against the forest fence
By Saint Agnes' fountain."


"Bring me flesh and bring me wine
Bring me pine logs hither
Thou and I will see him dine
When we bear him thither."

Page and monarch forth they went
Forth they went together
Through the rude wind's wild lament
And the bitter weather

"Sire, the night is darker now
And the wind blows stronger
Fails my heart, I know not how,
I can go no longer."

"Mark my footsteps, my good page
Tread thou in them boldly
Thou shalt find the winter's rage
Freeze thy blood less coldly."

Everybody Sing!
In his master's steps he trod
Where the snow lay dinted
Heat was in the very sod
Which the Saint had printed
Therefore, Christian men, be sure
Wealth or rank possessing
Ye who now will bless the poor
Shall yourselves find blessing

Josh Rouse is making some more music, a few songs as She's Spanish, I'm American with Paz Suay. There a couple of songs on the link, although they wont play well for me. Josh Rouse is also touring and plays Cat's Cradle Chapel Hill, NC. I've been there, go Heels (or something).

Set the video...Mrs 'Arris goes to Paris is on 5 on Friday at 1:35.
Light comedy in which an English charwoman (Angela Lansbury) sets her heart on owning an exclusive Dior gown from a boutique in Paris, and sets off across the Channel to make her dreams come true. Based on a novel by Paul Gallico, the film is directed by star Angela Lansbury's son.

It also has Fred Elliott off Corrie in it. I recommend a viewing.

Riders In The Sky are doing a cruise, cool!

"Get your suitcases and passport ready for the musical vacation of a lifetime on the Mexican Riviera! Riders In The Sky are setting sail on the 10th annual Grand Ole Opry Cruise, January 21-28, 2007 aboard Carnival's Pride. You too have the opportunity to enjoy an entire week of special Opry entertainment featuring Bill Anderson, Jimmy Dickens, Lorrie Morgan, and of course America's Favorite Cowboys, Riders In The Sky!"

I had a look at their tour dates and it looks like they're meant to be in Illinois when Dolly plays the UK so perhaps they're not support after all. I also noticed they have booking right up till march 2008, busy boys. Its their 30th anniversary next year you know? If you click on their website they have songs scrolling along to listen to too.

Wicked - Jilly Cooper

Jilly takes her prejudices to a school this time where lots of good looking pupils find they're not such bad kids even though they're poor. Only 1 horse so far but its early days.

This was in the bargain bin at the local video shop the other day and it reminded me how much I liked it. "SWEET, but what does mine say?" Genius. Well worth a Sunday afternoon viewing.
