Coming up on the show this week 17th August is Phil Ewing. Phil has been on the show many times reading other peoples work but she is on the show in her own right this week with her poetry.
Beautiful weather again today as I write this and unfortunately we will be back to the rain tomorrow.
I hope soon to be posting photos. Having not had a computer to use for so long, I have got out of practice . I have some great pictures to share. Unfortunately I am not on Facebook anymore so feel free to comment or contact via this blog.

Today, 10.8.2012, Bill Mycock is on the show. He has been recommended by Miss Foxglove and writes about his growing up on a farm in rural Staffordshire.
I have been out locally to the beautiful Fal river and her creeks. Reminds me of a lovely show we did some years ago at Trelissick with songs I'd written about the Fal. Penpol regatta on saturday was a real treat for those of you who have never been. The boats sail past right up to the quay and are so beautiful to watch. No St Mawes one designs this year but the sunbeams were there and so were the working boats and a lugger. I lived on boats for many years and it stays with you all the sense of the sea.The WI make the BEST cakes in the world and at only 50p a slice they are a real bargain. This week it is the start of the Falmouth regatta which lasts a long time and is pretty spectacular.
The Emantees are hoping to sing at Redruth pasty festival on 22nd september.with a special pasty song written for the occasion.We are all VERY excited about it.
Busy with rehearsals for forthcoming productions in St Ives and Liskeard.
Summer is here, if only briefly. It's now getting dark at 9pm so the days are drawing in. Enjoy it while you can mateys.
