Echo.

Hello, hello oh

Echo bounces round the hills

It’s voice sweet and low

Around at will, to and fro

It’s sound always brings me thrills.

When I was a child my Mum always sung the song Little Sir Echo how do you do. I loved it and learned it and sang it to my children.

Mum must of liked the song and I will always have lovely memories of the song, hearing her singing it to me and my children. Sadly she did not live to see my grandchildren but in my mind I hear and see her sing to them 💜

Just Because.

Just because I want to share

Song Lyric Sunday : Your Father and I

This  part  of  Song Lyric  Sunday  from   Helen Espinosa

here is  the Pingback

Now  I love  Beautiful  South  because  they  write  about  real life. This  particular  song is  about  how  an  embittered  wife  see’s  the  conception  of  her  son  in  a totally  different  light  to , laddish  husband  who  seems  to be looking  at  things  through  rose  coloured  glasses  while  his  wife   most definitely  has  no  such  blinkers on! It  is  a great  story   and  the video  is  brilliantly  made ! This  is  my  first  entry  to  this  challenge  so  I hopen  I  have  gone  about  this  correctly!

I  give you : YOUR FATHER  AND I  , BY  BEAUTIFUL SOUTH.

It was the middle of winter
And I drove us in my car
Well, the snow started fallin’
So we stopped off at a bar

When the beer jugs started flowin’
And your mother and I took the floor
But by the last dance we were tired
So I booked a room next door

So if anyone asks you
“If you come from heaven above”
You’re from a one star motel
With a five star passionate love

It was a hot summers day
(Hey, hey)
And we drove there in our car
And your father was thirsty
So we had to find a bar

Well he wouldn’t stop drinking
And he couldn’t stand on his feet
We had to walk to a hotel
And book ourselves into a suite

So if the teacher asks you
“Are you from heaven or are you from hell?”
You’re from a one star drunken screw
In a one star motel

Yes, if the teacher asks you
“Are you from heaven or are you from hell?”
You’re from a pitch black toilet
In a highway Taco Bell

I’ll remember the birth
For the rest of my time on this land
You’re mother’s sweating buckets
And me holdin’ onto her hand

Well your father was absent
He claimed he couldn’t find the ward
Just tugging on mescal
Trying to eat the umbilical cord

So if anyone asks you
“Do you know where you’re from?”, say, “Yes”
You’re from your mother’s womb
And your father’s stinking breath

And if they ask you, how you got here?
(Hey)
Tell ’em just what it took
(Hey)
Your father’s stinking breath
(Hey)
And your mother’s stinking mood

Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Won’t tell the truth

Aha, hey
Aha, aha
(Hey, hey)
Na na na na na na na na
(Hey, hey)

Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
(Hey)
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I

Musical Theme : Animals

Musical Themes : Animals


The Raven, Nevermore Written by Edgar Allan Poe
read by Sir Christopher Lee.

The Common Raven has coexisted with humans for thousands of years and in some areas have been so numerous that they are considered a pest. Part of its success comes from its omnivorous diet; Common Ravens are extremely versatile and opportunistic in finding sources of nutrition, feeding on carrion, insects, cereal grains, berries, fruit, small animals, and food waste.

Some notable feats of problem-solving have been observed in the species, leading to the belief that it is highly intelligent. Over the centuries, it has been the subject of mythology, folklore, art, and literature. In many indigenous cultures, including those o fScandinavia, ancient Ireland and Wales, Bhutan, the northwest coast of North America, and Siberia and northeast Asia, the Common Raven has been revered as a spiritual figure or god.

To a Mouse , by Robert Burns, read by Sean Barrett – an English actor with a Scott’s background.

mouse (plural: mice) is a small mammal belonging to the order of rodents, characteristically having a pointed snout, small rounded ears, and a long naked or almost hairless tail. The best known mouse species is the common house mouse (Mus musculus). It is also a popular pet. In some places, certain kinds of field mice are also common. This rodent is eaten by large birds such as hawks and eagles. They are known to invade homes for food and occasionally shelter.

The Tarantella (Spider bite)

The term tarantella groups together a number of different folk dances characterized by a fast upbeat tempo,

usually in 6/8 time (sometimes 18/8 or 4/4), accompanied by tambourines.

It is among the most recognized forms of traditional southern Italian music. The specific dance-name varies with
every region, for instance tammurriata in Campania, pizzica in the Salento region, Sonu a ballu in Calabria.
Tarantella is popular in Southern Italy.

In the Italian Taranto, Apulia, the bite of a locally common type of wolf spider, named “tarantula” after the region,
was popularly believed to be highly poisonous and to lead to a hysterical condition known as tarantism.
This became known as the Tarantella. The oldest documents mentioning the relationship between musical exorcism and the
tarantula are dated around 1100 Bc. R.Lowe Thompson proposed that the dance is a survival from a “Dianic or Dionysiac
cult”, driven underground.John Compton later proposed that these ancient Bacchanalian rites had been suppressed by the
Roman Senate. In 186 BC the tarantula went underground, reappearing under the guise of emergency therapy for bite victims.

Svetlana Zakharova and Roberto Bolle Swan Lake
The story of Swan Lake is woven around two girls, Odette and Odile, who resemble each other so closely they can easily
be mistaken for the other. Originally their roles were entrusted to two separate dancers, but there is only one brief
fleeting moment when they are seen simultaneously. Learn more here

The Swan : The Swan :Swans are birds of the family Anatidae within the genus Cygnus. The swans’ close relatives include the geese and ducks. Swans are grouped with the closely related geese in the subfamily Anserinae where they form the tribe Cygnini. Sometimes, they are considered a distinct subfamily, Cygninae. There are six or seven species of swan in the genus Cygnus; in addition there is another species known as the Coscoroba Swan, although this species is no longer considered one of the true swans. Swans usually mate for life, though ‘divorce’ does sometimes occur, particularly following nesting failure. The number of eggsin each clutch ranges from three to eight. Learn more 

The Snake Queen – Bollywood Bellydance by Asha

Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizardsby their lack of eyelids and external ears. Like all squamates, snakes are ectothermicamniote vertebrates covered in overlapping scales. Many species of snakes have skulls with many more joints than their lizard ancestors, enabling them to swallow prey much larger than their heads with their highly mobile jaws. To accommodate their narrow bodies, snakes’ paired organs (such as kidneys) appear one in front of the other instead of side by side, and most have only one functional lung. Some species retain a pelvic girdle with a pair of vestigial claws on either side of the cloaca.  learn more 

The Snake Queen – Bollywood Bellydance by Asha

The art of Bellydance would not be the same without Asha, the International Bellydance talent who presents her
captivating Bellydance style that blends Turkish and Gypsy Bellydance, with her signature “Bollywood Belly” Bellydance
style. Asha holds her audiences in rapt attention and tangible spiritual excitement, performing the sacred sword dance
in the style of the Rajasthani Gypsies, and the dance of Kali in the Tanjore Temple Style of Classical Indian dance.
Her recent events included a concert in Istanbul with Harem and Yeni Turku, the Persian Cultural Festival at Vanderbilt
U, performances in Dubai, and on MyIndiaTV. You can read more in the video’s discription!

monkey is a primate of the Haplorrhini suborder and simian infraorder, either an Old World monkey or a New World monkey, but excluding apes (including humans). There are about 260 known living species of monkey. Many are arboreal, although there are species that live primarily on the ground, such as baboons. Monkeys are generally considered to be intelligent. Unlike apes, monkeys usually have tails. Tailless monkeys may be called “apes”, incorrectly according to modern usage; thus the tailless Barbary macaque is called the “Barbary ape”.  Learn more

The Snowy Owl (Bubo scandiacus) is a large owl of the typical owl family Strigidae. The Snowy Owl was first classified in 1758 byCarolus Linnaeus, the Swedish naturalist who developed binomial nomenclature to classify and organize plants and animals. Until recently, it was regarded as the sole member of a distinct genus, as Nyctea scandiaca, but mtDNA cytochrome b sequence data (Olsen et al. 2002) shows that it is very closely related to the horned owls in the genus Bubo. However the recent view is to treat the species as a member of genus Nyctea.[2] The Snowy Owl is the official bird of the Canadian province of Quebec. It is also widely sought after by birdwatchers and nature-enthusiasts alike. Learn more 

I love Joanie Mitchelle !! Coyote
The coyote appears often in the tales and traditions of Native Americans—usually as a very savvy and clever beast.
Modern coyotes have displayed their cleverness by adapting to the changing American landscape. These members of the
dog family once lived primarily in open prairies and deserts, but now roam the continent’s forests and mountains.
They have even colonized cities like Los Angeles. Learn more

America Horse with no name.

America information here http://www.venturahighway.com/
The Horse : The horse (Equus ferus caballus) is one of two extant subspecies of Equus ferus, or the wild horse.
It is an odd-toed ungulate mammal belonging to the taxonomic family Equidae. The horse has evolved over the
past 45 to 55 million years from a small multi-toed creature into the large, single-toed animal of today.
Humans began to domesticate horses around 4000 BC, and their domestication is believed to have been widespread
by 3000 BC. Horses in the subspecies caballus are domesticated, although some domesticated populations live in the wild
as feral horses. These feral populations are not true wild horses, as this term is used to describe horses that have
never been domesticated. Learn more

Cat’s in the cradle by Cat Stevens

The domestic cat (Felis catus or Felis silvestris catus) is a small, usually furry, domesticated, and carnivorous
mammal. It is often called the housecat when kept as an indoor pet, or simply the cat when there is no need to
distinguish it from other felids and felines. Cats are often valued by humans for companionship and their ability
to hunt vermin and household pests. learn more here

Hounds of Love , Kate Bush ( another favourite of mine)
Dog : The domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris) is a subspecies of the gray wolf (Canis lupus), a member of the
Canidae family of the mammalian order Carnivora. The term “domestic dog” is generally used for both domesticated and
feral varieties. The dog was the first domesticated animal and has been the most widely kept working, hunting, and
pet animal in human history. The word “dog” can also refer to the male of a canine species, as opposed to the word
“bitch” which refers to the female of the species. Learn more 

Bjork Human Behaviour : You can spot hedgehogs , bears, baby birds, insects and fish, ducks and humans represented
here. The animal?? The Human : Humans (variously Homo sapiens and Homo sapiens sapiens) are primates of the family
Hominidae, and the only extant species of the genus Homo. Humans are distinguished from other primates by their
bipedal locomotion, and especially by their relatively larger brain with its particularly well developed neocortex,
prefrontal cortex and temporal lobes, which enable high levels of abstract reasoning, language, problem solving, and
culture through social learning. Humans use tools to a much higher degree than any other animal, and are the only
extant species known to build fires and cook their food, as well as the only known species to clothe themselves and
create and use numerous other technologies and arts. The scientific study of humans is the discipline of anthropology.
