The Penny Dropped
Posted On 11/19/2014 15:33:11 by kiwibarb
I have been wondering for ages why music groups are rarely photographed smiling. The gloomy looks on their faces are sending me the message that they hate what they do, and are being forced into it. It’s beside the point that I also frequently dislike what they do. Since making music gives me great pleasure, I could never understand this disagreeable look that they all seem to favour. Well, at long last the penny has finally dropped. Today’s news paper contained a pull-out of NZ music Award... Read More

The Musical Cockroach
Posted On 08/10/2014 16:37:45 by kiwibarb
I was practising my piano accordion, attempting to perfect a song that Pete asked me to learn, and I’d been playing for about 40 minutes, when suddenly I found it expedient to remove the accordion from my shoulders and shake off the huge native cockroach that was crawling on the keys. I stood on it, and went into the kitchen to fetch an old knife to scoop it up with, but when I got back it wasn’t there. Not there? How could it not be there! Well the last thing I need is a live cockroach th... Read More

It Sarted With the Pawnshop
Posted On 06/09/2014 23:04:04 by kiwibarb
Maybe my Hill friends listen to the radio and TV. I don’t, with the result that I never have to listen to anything I don’t like. I don‘t have an ipod. I go to YouTube where I can pick and choose. I wasn’t expecting the Pennsylvania Pawnshop to provide such a dazzling afternoon’s listening. I had been playing my piano accordion, and one of my songs was "There’s a Pawnshop on the Corner in Pittsburg Pennsylvania" and I decided to listen to it on YouTube. Guy Mitchell was the voaclist...

Good Old NZ TV
Posted On 03/12/2014 03:02:32 by kiwibarb
Good old TV, so much crime, drugs, police, murders and other rubbish that I turn it off and resort to YouTube. Tonight I chose to listen to The Stone Outside Dan Murphy's Door, and usually select Foster and Allen for that. But tonight I spotted a guy with a piano accordion, and I couldn't bypass that. I have discovered this Aussie pair called Bob and Hector. Bob plays piano accordion while Hector has three strings to his bow, except that he doesn't use a bow. He plays a button accordion, w...

The Music Man
Posted On 12/02/2013 00:48:37 by kiwibarb
I met Pete at our Scooter Group meeting when he was our Speaker of the Day, and came to tell us about his thermal jeans. I have never liked or worn jeans, but neither do I like the cold of winter, so I ordered a pair of custom-made jeans and have nothing but praise for them. At the time, I didn’t know that Pete was in any way musical, but when he arrived to deliver the finished garment he asked where the huge circular saw had gone, that used to be on my garage door. He had known my late husba... Read More
