Post some of your favourites songs, new or old, to help us get through this. Any other random stuff if equally welcomed. You can add videos from Youtube or else were by clicking the likkle + symbol>the videocamera(2nd). Here are a few to start us off!! This one is a 2 part series of some wacky scarecrow people. Not bad for the British Brainwash Corporation. Maybe we could vote on the finest contributions when we're set free from our cages. Maybe we could throw a party with all the tunes also.

YO! Just watched this doc... It is always great to be reminded of the pure benefits of localisation. It is hard now, as all the farmy markets ain't open but could we push for more local economies to be started after this pandemic is done and dusted?? or will we rerun back to a globalised world where we ship our British apples to Sydney to be waxed and then flown back here to be sold in Tescos......
