Indian Meal at Nikhil’s Asian Village, Raszyn


Original YT playout date: 18 April 2009
Duration: 16:02

“This was my wife’s choice for our Wedding Anniversary. It’s one of our favourite restaurants, and definitely the best Indian restaurant in Poland.

We tend to eat there a bit, and then get the rest packed up. It does for several meals afterwards!”

To You, Who Soar on Eagle’s Wing – original Song for my wife


Original YT playout date: 13 April 2009
Duration: 1:29

To my wife, who is like an angel in human form, I wrote the present song (words and melody) in 2002 in Moscow.

I wasn’t able to play it very well, and I am still not very good at performing it – maybe some musicians out there can help me do a proper rendering of this composition? There are two verses here, but the whole poem was four verses long, and I cannot remember all of it. The chords given below are what they should be – the piano here is obviously not in that key, even before I chipmunked it!

1. To (C)you, who (G)soar on (a)eagle’s (e)wing

A(a)bove all (C)other (e)women,

To (a)you al(e)one this (a)song I (C)sing

My (a)heart with (G)love a-(e)brimmin'(E)

To (a)you al(e)one this (a)song I (C7)sing

My (F)heart with (G7)love a-(C)brimmin'(G)

2. The mountain lake and forest fringe

Are fair enough to view

But far beyond their beauty’s range

I hold the look of you

I cannot recall the third verse, which related to the sound and scent of her, but the fourth verse logically follows:

4. Because my senses you full fill

Good sense it seems to make

That I should love and love you still

And never you forsake.

And that’s exactly what I’ve done!

Huliganov’s Cookery Show #3 – Lithuanian Sandwiches


Lithuanian sandwiches, Huliganov Cookery Show, culinary, Elena,

Original YT playout date: 8 March 2009
Duration: 6:42

Following on from the success of “Huliganov Salad” and “Streets of Philadelphia”, Viktor Huliganov showcases “Lithuanian sandwiches”, in which at least one element, the bread, actually comes from Lithuania and the other bits can easily be found there. Probably.

No Lithuanians were hurt in the making of this sandwich. No Lithuanians have probably ever actually eaten this sandwich. The latter may account for the former, and vice versa.

The rooks, the horse, the cat and the snowman


Original YT playout date: 3 March 2009
Duration: 14:18

The rooks come home to rest, and I take my kids to their horse therapy. Later on we see our balcony snowman and discuss how the comments of a few morons led to my needing to take down a successful film. Between these morons on the one hand and morons like Warners on the other, I am losing material these days almost as fast as I can put it up.

Sika deer in Ashridge


Original YT playout date: 10 February 2009
Duration: 39:12

“I can’t belive you you film this, let alone make other people watch it afterwards, REDICULOUS!” wrote one commentator. Nevertheless, I am enjoying watching it afterwards, as it has my parents on and little Sophie’s voice, which otherwise would be lost for ever as my parents are gone, zichro baruch, Sophie hi gdolah achshav, and this will never happen again. So even if someone doesn’t like it, I don’t really care too much. I like it. Yeah, it’s a pity that the video cam is blurred, but that’s what I had. Some people see the world like that anyway, because they don’t realise that they need glasses. Just as some commentators comment like that because they don’t realise they need more brains.

Uncle Davey’s Herts Content S2 E8 – Whipsnade Zoo part 1 of 2


 

Original YT playout date: 10 August 2008
Duration: 33:25

Whipsnade zoo is part of the Zoological Society of London’s set of world leading animal parks. It is an important conservation centre and part of the contemporary Noah’s Ark. It is also one of my favorite spots on the planet. This part of my film of our visit is one circuit by car. Closer looks on foot will be in part two.

Whipsnade is not strictly in Herts, but as it’s just outside it qualifies for my “Uncle Davey’s Herts Content” series on Hemel Hempstead et environs.
