Happy Easter from olilolo (and Queen)

Happy Easter from olilolo (and Queen)

On your Easter Monday, why not kick back and take some time to bathe in this masterful performance by Queen, live at Wembley stadium on 12 July 1986.

What a concert this would have been! Support bands were INXS, The Alarms and Status Quo, then Queen came on and rocked 28 songs including 2 encores in front of 72,000 people.

Freddy, what a brilliant performer you were. You continue to make the world a better place.

Domestic Misfortune

Domestic Misfortune

I don’t mind ironing, although I don’t claim to be very good at it. There’s a certain homely charm in the smell of the fabric as it passes under the heat. However to be honest, when the alarm goes off and I have to make the decision to get up in the sub-10 degree weather and iron my shirt, or to sneak another 10 minutes beneath my toasty warm doona, I will invariably put the ironing off. Unfortunately this means that I am normally horribly late to work.

Tonight I decided to do my week’s ironing in one hit, so I never have to face this dilemma and can glide blissfully into each day without needing to complete any unpleasant activities before my first coffee, and hopefully not get fired.

Well, that was the theory anyway. Somehow tonight I have managed to ineptly ruin every single implement involved in the ironing process in a Rube-Goldberg-machine-like chain of destruction. I will recount to you how I found myself in this predicament.

Bruce’s Tip of the Day – Cream is Good

Bruce’s Tip of the Day – Cream is Good

I find that the majority of people of my generation really don’t appreciate cream that much. To most of us, cream is something that comes out of an aerosol can or something that gets mixed with ice to form icecream. Whipped cream is a little bit ‘out there’, and don’t even THINK about having cream other than very, very occasionally for a special event.

However, I have recently come to the discovery that cream is good. Very, very deliciously gnarmmmm…slobber good.
