What with all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it
is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person which almost
went unnoticed last week. Larry La Prise, the man who wrote "The Hokey
Kokey"died peacefully aged 83.
The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They
put his left leg in - and things just started to go downhill from there.

Pounding at a thick stone wall won't move it, sometimes, you need to step back to see the way around.

Not yet... It was QEII's mom that died. She was a sprightly 101.
