Trumpet exams, cooking and Michael Jackson.

My son took his Grade 1 Trumpet exam today. He has practised really hard and I hope he has done well. I must take some film so you can hear him play. He really is rather good!

It is very hot here at the moment and I have just cooked 3 different meals for my men. I don't usually do this. They usually get what they're given, but today I just took pity on them. Needless to say I didn't fancy eating by the time I had done all that.

And, this may not be a popular opinion, but I am getting so fed up of hearing Michael Jackson music all the time. What is this obsession with celebrity? Yes, its sad he has died and I feel for his family the same way I would for anyone, but do they have to go on and on about it?? I even turned on French radio the other day and they were droning on about him.Good Grief!!

Well, that's it for today. Off to get the kids to bed now.

I agree, if I want to hear MJ, I'll buy a CD.
There are several tasteless jokes floating about and I am ashamed to say, I have laughed at most of them.

I noticed that the BBC and ITV were quick to send over their big guns - presumably to cover any public funeral. You'd think it would have been a better use of tax-payers money if they'd waited to see what happens - any anyway, don't they have correspondents closer who could have covered it if needs be ? I don't like that we are paying for all this circus one bit.

All respect to his family of course, awful under any circumstances but here is is survived by his entire family. Very sad but I agree, can't they tone down the coverage and just stick to the facts ?

I am so with you on the MJ thing. I feel sorry for him but I just can't take any more Thriller.

Gail I think I have heard those jokes.

Good luck fo your son with the trumpet results.

Aha!! I knew I wasn't the only one!! I noticed that the BBC had sent people over to cover it too, Elise. Madness!!

I have to say that I have heard a lot of jokes - completely tasteless and... very funny.

And thanks... the trumpet exam went very well... just need the results now. S
