live at the deaf institute

One of the videos I took .I'm having problems downloading videos files at present(?) So I,ve had to reduce file size & the quality isn't currently as good as it could be/will be.........anyway......
 Thursday night, me & Cath went to Manchester's deaf institute
to see  Simone Felice .
It's the third time we have seen him in the past four years. If you don't know his music, one of his songs ( "Radio Song") was featured on the soundtrack of the recent Oscar winning movie "three billboards"...

I have 3 better videos I will add later once I,ve sorted out my "file-size problems".................

Shall be the maws of kites.........

This week's  sepia saturday ,; seems to be around the themes of people;bathing:seaside; sand; etc
Today I visited (for the first time) Hebden Bridge Antiques Centre well worth a general look around.But what especially pleased me was a big buckety -thing selling old/random sepia photography! Hundreds...!
 Its very unusual to see this nowadays.50p each .Which I thought "not bad".
 it would take me hours to look at them all (must go back next week) but I did find several concerning this week's theme.
 Here are two.(no notes on the back)
the maws of kites (at the seaside!)

On the subject of seachanges , Me & Cathy voted this morning in the UK Local elections. We voted again for Jeremy Corbyn's socialist Labour Party. In addition, I went out canvassing for the party this evening.Here is Cathy pictured with fellow Party member Rodger.
You, my American visitors,remember the name Jeremy Corbyn .https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeremy_Corbyn 
Think of him as a scruffy, slightly more radical   Bernie Sanders, who rides a bike & grows his own veg...!
He could well be Britain's new Prime Minister within the next 12 months.
