Sent by Dick Greener 23 Dec 2009


Hi folks

A few updates before we all get stuck into our mince pies and the festive season overwhelms us.

A very merry Christmas to all who celebrate that sort of thing and a prosperous 2010 to you all.

Best wishes

DICK

======================
ON A PERSONAL NOTE ...
======================

As the website has been quiet for the last few weeks, I've been off pursuing my own musical interests. Not this time with the inestimable Strawberry Fools (never fear, they've not gone away, more on them early next year), but with my band of chums from work, who celebrated their tenth anniversary of playing together, by mounting their the seventh gig of their career (can we call it a tour yet ?) after a break of five years since the last. A tough hill to climb, but we thoroughly enjoyed it and are planning to do more in the future.

The Swiss Cottagers, so called because they all worked in that area of London, have a website with photos of the event, as well as an MP3 track with a Christmassy feel, at www.swisscottagers.co.uk.
