We're doing it again! This time we are biking from Petra in Jordan up to Nazareth in Israel, to raise money for the Nazareth Hospital CT Scanner appeal. Last year we raised over £50,000 for the Children's Unit! Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel; the people are lovely, and the kids are awesome. Nazareth also treats kids in the West Bank of Palestine who have very limited access to healthcare. They need your help! Go to my sponsorship page to find out more and see what you can do! Maybe even join us..?

Too good not to share

Thanks to Eggy for this one. I'll need to break out my Nukulele and join in. The Uke is a tragically-neglected little instrument, and in terms of fun and accessibility, rocks in a big way. I'm currently working on a version of Bon Jovi's "Dead or Alive" ("a loaded four-string on my back") and have a passable rendering of World Party's "Put the Message in the Box". But I don't think I'll ever ascend these lofty heights...


  1. Allegedly, the Beatles where influenced by George Formby's ukulele playing.

    You actually can imagine George singing "Will you still need me, when I'm 64".

    "All you need is love" works...speed up "Yesterday" a bit and you've a Formby song. "It's been a Hard Days Night" works too.

    However "Happiness is a warm gun" doesn't really fit...

  2. Shungy, you are most welcome! How's the practise coming?
