Happy St Piran's Day

This is my Eden, this is my Cornwall.

Lovely stuff, Sol - and some of these singers might well have been even older than I am, though they don't sound it.
I'm sure I won't be anything like alone in never having hard of St Piran. Just had to google the name and I've become a lot wiser.

Btw: I was wondering if you ever got to see 'Red Sparrow'. It's showing here now but having read that it's not for the faint-hearted it's going onto my list of films to be avoided as I just haven't the stomach any more for ultra-violent films.
Just heard that 'Shape of Water' has got Oscar for 'Best Picture', a film I found grossly cruel and uncomfortable to watch, and which I wouldn't like to see again (unless I could edit out the many disturbing moments). I think that says more about my increasing disconnect with what is considered 'good' than the films themselves.

I don't know why, but I find flash-mobs excruciatingly embarrassing.

Hey Ray, I am trying to learn more of the 'culture' down here. The flags are all out in the village. I havent been able to see Red Sparrow yet, I hadnt read that it was overly violent. I will have to rethink that then. I would think the Shape of Water will be edited for TV, it sounded ghastly in places.

Hey Tom, I have never witnessed a flash mob in person. I would presume it takes much rehearsal.

Happy St Piran or Kieran Sol. He was born on Cape Clear. This is a little island off West Cork.

A lot of the dry stone walls near me were built by Cornish tin miners. Then the price of tin dropped and they went to Montana, USA.
