Capital Models - Live 29 November 2014

Up around 8:30, a little the worse for wear...

Enough though to scupper any thoughts of a drive to Glasgow whilst the EP leisurely lunched with chums Lesley and Gillian...

The view from the office this morning...


...and later this morning...


...when more Gabi Delgado arrived...


Contemplating a return to service for a new line up of Capital Models, which included listening to two old line ups, neither of which is viable any longer...

The view from the office this afternoon...


...and, in the early evening, when details of our trip to Hamburg next month were finalised...


A ballet in London in October too and, possibly, some Dvorak and Smetana string quartets...

This evening, the Eurovision Song Contest took hold...

With our neighbours too....


My own marking...


...which was revised in hindsight...

A very entertaining evening and we liked the new system for revealing the votes - which threw up, in stark relief, the disparity between the "professional" judges and the public at large...

A worthy winner by Ukraine but, for me, not the best song...

It's all subjective of course...

Highlight of the Day : Accommodation secured...

Nice view from the office pic. Who won the Reilly Eurovision then?

Italy probably... Although I discovered Norway after the event - it didn't make the final - both will be in the podcast (along with around six others) Eclectic!!
