Amy Winehouse Found Dead At Home

Amy Winehouse dies at age 27

Very sad news and a waste of talent. However she lived on the fast road with excesses of drink and drugs.

Better to remember her for the better times she sometimes had.

Fife Council invest in new kitchens

The two pictures above are of my recently refurbished kitchen which was the excellent work of Fife Council and their Contractors in the Forth View Esplanade area of Kirkcaldy . The worktops are in the style of granite and storage space is plentiful. Electrical work was carried out including new extractor fan and new sink with the units.

Kitchen is where I always head for in the morning where I make a pot of tea.

Money well spent by Fife Council which has a significant SNP presence in my local authority region.

The workmanship was of high quality and the workmen were polite and organised.

I was a council tenant in Dundee for twenty five years and have been under secure tenancy in KIrkcaldy for just over two years.

I would never see the need to buy a council house and am opposed to the sale of the public sector housing stock in principle.

Back to my pot of tea.

Hugh Cornwell & The Stranglers

The Stranglers were at their best when with Hugh Cornwell however the former lead singer from the group has made a successful go at being a solo artist which is testament to his unchanging musical talent.

One thing certain when we get Scottish independence we will still welcome talented English bands to tour in this country. Music is food for the soul and can brighten up the dullest of days.

And I still find the time to sing karaoke whether I am in Kirkcaldy or Dundee.

Reading is also a pleasure and Hugh Cornwell's autobiography A Multitude of Sins is worth a read where he describes how demeaning it was when he spent a short time in prison.

Check out his albums, tours and source of reading as he is an inspiration for up and coming artists on the rock or punk scene.
