    Brisbane, Australia Floods....

    Hi! Edna, I just got your facebook message! I'm a long way south of the floods at the moment, down the lower end of New South Wales. We had our own dramas in December, and were evacuated from our homes then. Back in now, but the clean up is ongoing. The situation in Queensland is that times a thousand. I remember the sheer panic of running through flood waters and trying to help my flatmate after we snatched some clothes and the cat from our apartment building. Not something I want to experience again I was thinking of you and your family Darryl, I'm glad to see you're okay.

    Simon & Garfunkel

    We were lucky enough to snag tickets to Simon & Garfunkel in Sydney at Acer Arena last Sunday night. First up, let me say I *hate* this venue. It is at Olympic Park, Homebush (remember the Sydney Olympics in 2000? This was the stadium for the Olympic basketball) and it is HUGE. I've seen Kiss there, and The Eagles and while a venue like this is made for bands like Kiss, and The Eagles can certainly hold their own there, it IS NOT made for bands like Simon & Garfunkel. They overcame this of course The quality of their voices is still very, very good. They opened with 'Old Friends' and sang a number of their hits before Art Garfunkel sang a few of his solo songs. He still has a great voice but his songs all sounded the same to me. I thought he sang 'Bright Eyes' three times Paul Simon followed this up by singing three of his own, (including a fantastic rendition of 'Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes') which elicited much more of a crowd response. Stand outs for me were 'America' (I am biased about that one - it's my all time fave S&G track), 'The Only Living Boy In New York', 'The Boxer' and the perennial classic 'Bridge Over Troubled Water'. The concert ended with two encores and standing ovations for the old friends
