I loved The Monkees' TV antics too imaof4.
I've been enjoying watching the short series of programmes on the BBC about pop. There were programmes about boy bands, girl bands and solo artists. They seemed to feature groups etc mostly from my era. Couldn't help thinking there wasn't much to appeal to today's younger people in the programmes but I thought they were great.
Hope everyone is having a good week. I'll have a cappuccino Sam and a bacon butty if you can stretch to that - I'm hungry.
ETA: Happy Mother's Day. We're off swimming to celebrate.

My favourite cake is Battenburg and probably any cake that involves marzipan. Years ago I used to be able to get little mini ones which had each end dipped in chocolate and a little bit of butter cream between the sponge and the marzipan. Oh how I wish I could get my hands on some of them again.
I had a lovely apple fritter in Starbucks yesterday.
He's a key witness. So could you treat him like a person, Phyllis. D'you remember "people"? You used to be one!
Ah Springtime! When a young woman's fancy turns to thoughts of... food?
My thoughts are all of gardening at the moment. We have had a complete week of heat that has broken all temperature records over the past 140 years! It's 11am and 74 -- er, 23C with the high expected to be 28...on what we traditionally call the First Day of Spring! I hope some of this is making its way over to you in the UK.
Wow olenza, that's hot for March It's been gorgeous and very springlike here - I've got a pair of ducks nesting on my pond and all the daffs are out Need the weather to stay like this till the 31st when I've got a very special wedding ;D
