A little something for the weekend ... ?

I am going to try and post some music every week. Sometimes I am going to focus on one band, like I did with the Stereophonics and sometimes it might be a few different artists. Today I felt like going country. Yee Haw!

Since I got to California, I have really missed the UK music scene. All the music over here is either regurgitated from the 60's and 70's, mainstream pop, or country music, lots and lots of country music. In the past, I had associated country music with people like Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton. I hadn't realised that there was a whole new genre - young and sexy! (Cor, those cowboys ain't half bad!) So, as the old saying goes, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!

And wouldn't you know it, after a few weeks of listening I actually started to enjoy it and now I'm proud to admit I'm a new country fan! Yes, I know, my indie rock chicks back home are groaning, covering their faces in despair and disowning me, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!

Ebook to Help Harry Help Others

Rachael and Cat have done it! In double quick time they have collated and produced the above ebook containing all the fabulous stories from the three Campaign challenges. Apparently there are 176 stories from 81 Campaigners. It only costs $2.99 and all the proceeds are being donated to "Help Harry Help Others", which is a fund-raising organisation set up by 11 year old Harry Moseley. Harry sadly died of his inoperable brain tumor last month, but not before single-handedly raising over £85,000 (over $135,000).

Here are the links to purchase:

Please share this information with as many people as possible and please, please, please buy this fantastic book. The stories are really great and it would be lovely if we could help carry on Harry's amazing legacy.

Read a book, make a difference!
