Happy New Year one and all! And in honour of the first blizzard of the year...
"It's a marshmallow world in the winter When the snow comes to cover the ground. It's the time for play, It's a whipped cream day. I wait for it the whole year round.
Those are marshmallow clouds being friendly, In the arms of the evergreen trees, And the sun is red like a pumpkin head. It's shining so your nose won't freeze.
The world is your snowball, see how it grows, That's how it goes, whenever it snows. The world is your snowball just for a song. Get out and roll it along.
It's a yum-yummy world made for sweethearts, Take a walk with your favourite girl. It's a sugar date, what if spring is late, In winter it's a marshmallow world. In winter it's a marshmallow world. In winter... it's a marshmallow world."
Surely you can see a theme here?
...On Thursday, January 9th... the fabulous folks at the Rose & Kettle Concert Sessions will be back with their annual potluck and play-around-sing-around... inviting you to bring your favourite dish to share, a song or two or just your ears. Always fun! And a great way to start the new year!
... On Friday, January 10... the ludicrous lunatics at What The Folk! will be stealing their idea... inviting you to bring your favourite musical dish to share... a song or story or two about food.
Your New Year's diet resolutions will be safe with us. No need to fear the calories in BLACK RUM AND BLUEBERRY PIE! There are none. As forGREEN EGGS AND HAM? They have no cholesterol, Sam I am. And you can have a HOT BURRITO #1 or a HOT BURRITO #2 or as many as you like because they are completely carb free. And gluten free! And guilt free!!

"In winter it's a marshmallow world. In winter it's a marshmallow world. In winter... it's a marsh...mallow... world."
Happy shovelling! Margo
