Kris Kristofferson – He’s lived!

© Marina Chavez

I suppose, there’s not a lot I can say here. ‘Cept that he’s one of many prominent country artists lucky enough to play with Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson amongst others.. His musical and acting career has spanned decades, literally.

I think, to be able to have done that and been part of something amazing such as The Highwaymen as well is just top.

And of course he plays great music, watch the following vid and enjoy!

And remember – don’t forget to keep it country. If you’re into your country and western, or your folk music check out Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2. Legend that he is: http://www.bobharris.org

Review: Armageddon: The Battle for Germany 1944-45

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is probably one of the longest, and ultimately best history books, that I have ever read. It wasn’t for the faint hearted – there is so much information packed into each page that at times it did make it rather tiring to read – needless to say the text size was rather small – so unless you’re interested in the subject or know someone who is I wouldn’t recommend it…

Personally though – for any historians or warfare enthusiasts – this is well worth checking out!

MG Progress Update 3 – Brake calipers restored to orginal colour!

Or at least I hope it’s very near original. Yes, this is how I spent the Sunday just gone. 7hrs  (allowing drying time) to take off one wheel at a time, paint, repaint, put wheel back on, touch up and then repeat with the second wheel.

All good fun, and I really was blessed with the weather (and the fact we had no rain, and the rest of England seemed to get loads!)

I am, needless to say, rather chuffed with the end result.

For those that are interested I used Halfords Brake Caliper Paint – at the time of writing this the price stands at £10.99 for a tin which is more than enough paint.
