Pool Concert (CUV)

You Tube political acceptance/resistance map

We’re continuing the footage from our 2010 summer holiday, which is only now, six months later, appearing on YouTube – such being the effects of the new “hundred rule” I’ve implemented. At least we have a bit of summer in winter time.

In this video my aunty and uncle appeared from several hours drive further south in France where they live and stayed a few days. Sophie decided to give a bit of a concert in the pool and some feats of swimming.

And here’s the result.

OK, Poll time. You heard some Abba on this, and you could see how it bridges three generations. Now the question:

Sophie’s “Queen of the Night”


Queen of the Night

Now Sophie is five years old, in this. It’s only the seventh video I put up, out of over 850, but it was a relative hit. With over 100,000 views this is one of the most popular videos on the channel. She sings this much better now of course, so in due course we’ll have to do a “five years on” remake.

Bringing my kid up as nutty as I am…


Do it!


This was the first ever video with Sophie on, mucking about as ever, this time only four years old.

Every parent has a duty to make sure their kid is brought up a bit nutty, as they are themselves. Only the slightly nutty can deal with this nutty world. If you are too nutty, you get lost in nuttiness. If you are too sane, then the nuttiness of the world will make you go insane properly. The only way to stay sane in a world like this is to be a little bit nutty.
