The Isleys: Few have weathered so many changes while producing so much fine music. To borrow a Blake-ism, they must be a benchmark for something, I'm just not sure what (resilience and musical quality, perhaps?)

More Isleys. This is the song I want played at my funeral:

I think that bass line might raise me from the dead.

Let's go! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Hwphb-DsuY

The weekend doesn't start for me yet, not by a long chalk.

This evening I've got to don my suit and head off to a Kensington hotel for a "networking event" where the local voluntary sector meet with the local business community. Just typing those words makes me feel sick.

Experience tells me that the supposedly philanthropic business community representatives will start off sneering and once they discover the organisation I work for isn't about forcing local disabled people to become zero hour contracted shelf stackers, they'll get infinitely sneerier.

Sooner or later this is all going to get to me you know: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SH9fdTberSM

Good luck this evening, Jamie. The worst may well be having to wear the suit.

Thanks Norman. The event is being organised by one of the fancier supermarket chains, so at least the promised "drinks and nibbles" should be good.
