Why Is 'T' The Most Dangerous Letter?

I don’t know about you, but I’m not one of those who reels off a long list of New Year Resolutions on approaching the stroke of midnight on Dec 31st each year.  This time last year however, I did make a few simple vows.  To get out more, spend more time with family and friends, and to indulge myself in a lot more music!

Spring Has Sprung!

Spring Has Sprung!

I always get a sudden surge of energy and optimism in March and April, as the days brighten up and the light starts to change to herald the beginning of spring. Maybe it's the 'hopeful' sightings of daffodils and tulips as they push their way up from the under-ground to test the weather.
