The Blues Brothers

Paying special tribute to these terrific game fish that were once were the kings of the south beach.
It makes me sing the blues to see that they are no longer here.

This country needs to take serious actions to save these wonderful species.

The Old Man and the Sea - Ernest Hemingway Novel

I loved the original 1958 film which starred Spencer Tracy. Then a follow up in 1990 by Anthony Quinn with daughter / Son act.

No fishing

Time for baking…….

It’s so funny, I cooked the focaccia bread and before the bread came out of the oven we got a guest. Believe me,our guest would have finished the bread if I didn’t move it away.  It was excellent - Spicy Olives, Anchovys, bell peppers, capers, balsamic vinegar onions, tomatoes, pamazano and mozzarella with a dash of olive oil. 

Cauliflower Crust Pizza, a great alternative for breadless pizza.

McFadden and Whitehead
Ain’t No Stopping Us Now - I heard this playing this evening and it brought back memories.
Gene McFadden and John Whitehead were great writers and composers. They wrote and composed music for Melba Moore, Freddie Jackson, Gloria Gaynor, Teddy Pendergrass, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, Gladys Knight, The Jackson 5, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Lou Rawls and many more.
The duo wrote several hits songs, the first being “Back Stabbers” in 1972 for the The O’Jays. It reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on Billboard’s Hot Soul Singles chart.
Their song “Ain’t No Stopping Us Now” made number #1 for 2 weeks and stayed in the top 100 for 14 weeks.
Sadly though, on May 11, 2004, Whitehead was murdered on the street outside of his Philadelphia home while doing car repairs with his nephew. In an apparent case of mistaken identity, he was shot by two unknown gunmen, who then fled. The case remains unsolved. Whitehead was 55 years old.
On January 27, 2006, McFadden died of liver and lung cancer. He was 57.
Such a sad story. I lay my hat down for these great musicians, composers and writers.
Listen to the song that made history in the UK soul charts.
