Original playout date: 24 January 2008
Duration: 6:46

I suppose the provocative title is the main reason for the 20 thousand views, but then again it is quite an amusing, if blurry, battle of wills between my wife and our Bengal kitten (then kitten, now 11 year old cat) Pushkin. As well as a chance to hear some Russian.

Original playout date: 7 December 2007
Duration: 5:11

This was, had been, a delightful rendition of “you raise me up” sang with my wife joining in the end. Unfortunately Mr Groban’s label are a bunch of money-groban pigs who grobbed the audio track.

Duration: 9:52

Once again a nice memory of my late parents, and I am glad that there are these few snatches of them that live on. As indeed do the charming scenes of all three little ones so cute and tiny, and Elena walking around on her own. These were the days we thought would never end, and thanks to video, my friend, in a sense they don’t.

I really enjoyed rewatchng this one. Together with my rendition of Styx’ rock ballad “Babe”, I put on a collection of short videos, largely featuring my own kiddies, including Sara, Sophie, Tanya, George and my wife in all her splendour. Very nice memories.
