This popped up on Youtube today - you can see Mr CBQ's big baldy head just to the right of the piano - Yowsah! what a drum sequence from 2 minutes in (preceded by a great Moog solo)...


Meanwhile, this morning, I was wasting my time by noting artists by whom I could compile further compilations in my home-made "epic" series - which involves the longest track from each of their albums I have...


Out into the sun...


The Beast was about its business, casting rather an unorthodox shape on an unsuspecting hedge...


At lunchtime, a stop by in the British Heart Foundation resulted in £35 of CDs in Amazon prices entering the collection for just three more of your English pounds, transferred to a worthwhile charity...

And, once again, I walked home...

Past the Venetian Tower...


The cathedral...


Haymarket...


The white building opposite the former Donaldson's School for the Deaf...


..and various salubrious side roads...


...Roseburn...


...the strange house...


...Jane & Bobby's...


Anne's mum's...


...the rabbits at the zoo...


...the bus stop at the zoo...


...with Mr Quartet secreted in a giant Magnum...


Stopping at the bottom of the steep climb up Crispycat Hill, I took a No 12 along to the bottom of the not so steep climb up Crispycat Hill as there was a 15 minute wait for the 26 which would have taken me to the top...

Up the hill...


The Beast was still about its business...


Showing off his purchases to passing motorists...


..and the worldwide websphere...


Home...


Earlier today a trip to Gdansk was aborted at the last second...

Tonight, it was replaced by a trip to Bordeaux...

On telly, "The Interceptor" and a double bill of "Person of Interest" were much enjoyed...

On the hi fi, Purcell and Brahms reigned...

Lights out...

Highlight of the Day : Booking a trip...
