    From what I can tell, Donny has barely been heard from in about 40 years over here, and Marie is only on weight loss commercials. I could be wrong as I don’t watch much TV, though.

    He is still big over here. Touring regularly. I took the missus to a Donny and Marie concert just before we locked down for Covid. He comes over during the Winter to star in Panto.

    My most exciting purchase recently was a wedding dress for my youngest daughter who is getting married in September.

    My friend was talking about seeing him somewhere a few years ago. I thought he was still entertaining.

    A coiple of weeks ago my elder grand daughter (13) asked if I had a record player. So we spent a pleasant hour spinning some vinyl while I explained about 45s and 33 1/3. A and B sides, albums and singles. She was so impressed that she decided she wants a record player and to start her own vinyl collection (she is a bit of a rock chick and likes ACDC, Nirvana, System of a Down, Metallica and the Rolling Stones). Anyway, today I was in a charity thrift shop looking to get a second hand wheelchair for my Mother in Law who is going into hospital tomorrow for an operation that may leave her immobile for a while. Anyway, looking round I spotted a record deck on the shelf. Still in it's original box and packaging, in fact it had never been unpacked £15 ($20) a bargain. So home it came, unpacked and Queen playing I videoed it and sent her the vid with a message to start collecting! She is over the Moon. She already has her eye on a few of my records to start her off.

    You’re going to love it! I got one for myself after I enjoyed working with the one I had at work. I’m on my second one, and I just got an iPad Pro to use with my crafting.

    I'm liking the bigger screen. I also started using it for streaming like Netflix and sometimes Youtube when I'm looking at recipes for dinner.

    Further to my earlier post on Saturday I picked up Greenday, Guns n Roses and Coldplay CDs from a local charity store all £1 each. Grand daughter was thrilled!

    I ordered a lot of light bulbs recently. Very boring purchase.
    Happy i actually found Legrand phone number here and could ask them some questions about different types of light bulbs etc. In the past i always purchased the wrong ones.

    I bought lots of delicious, but terribly unhealthy festival food this weekend. Blooming onion, potato spirals with cheese sauce, funnel cake, snow cone, fudge, pork rinds.

    my heartburn and blood sugar are terrible

    Need a pop stars themed costume for an event soon. Found a long black wig in a local charity shop. My wife has made a 6' snake from a roll of green curtain material. Just need some black face paint and voila, Alice Cooper! The missus is contemplating going as Adam Ant! We had considered going as Sonny and Cher but as I am taller I would have to be Cher (The wig would still be OK though)!

    If you go as Alice Cooper, carry a golf club as a side prop. Inside baseball stuff.

    My next purchase is going to be a turntable. My old one is about shot and I have lots of records that need playing, especially on Saturday mornings.

    The outfit went down well. I wouldn't have got the golf club past security. The snake and I did a bit of a puppet act on the jumbotron in one break in play.

    We just bought floor seats to see Judas Priest, tickets for Night Ranger, and tickets for Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Poison, and Joan Jett. We are in the process of booking an Alaskan cruise and finishing paying for our New York trip. Our big purchase is a new driveway, which is way overdue. Asphalt is crazy expensive.
