Thursday music

A few days ago Google reminded us that it was Miriam Makeba's birthday. I posted this before, but still like it, and am trying to get my granddaughter to sing it:

A while back I joined PostCrossing and have fun exchanging post cards (wow, the Post Office still works) with people around the world. It's nice to get home and find something other than a bill or advertising flyer (or political flyer) in the mail box. Someone in Malta that I am sending a post card to listed the comedian Tim Minchin as a favorite. The name was not familiar, so I went on YouTube and searched, which resulted in a long list of posts. After looking at him I realized I had seen him somewhere before (who can forget that face?). This one, with a full orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall was nice:

How funny that you brought up post crossings... (must look this up) I am planning on "send me a postcard I will send you one back" extravaganza on my blog.
I love mail, real mail, card in the postbox mail that makes you happy mail. Nothing like it. Real words written out, stamped and posted.

I have at one time worked for almost every card company.

cheers, parsnip

I love Miriam Makeba, I remember listening to her when we lived in Africa many years ago now! J'adore Tim Minchin Joe, you know he grew up and went to Uni here in Perth.

I love Tim Minchin's work. So funny and yet so naughty. :)

I'd never heard of Tim Minchin but I must say that his songs made me laugh especially the second one(it's all about me and my little penis) !
