…a request…to indulge this old blogger in one of his Bucket List items…#TBSU…

…five years ago, I thought ‘computer’ was a mis-spelling of ‘commuter’…my first laptop was purchased four years ago to tap out my first novel back then, one finger per hand…the mysteries of the Web and all the magical,  convolutionary equipment and universes created by Messrs Gates, Zuckerberg, and a gazillion whizz-kids from all over the planet still baffle me…comes now, however, COMPUTER STUFF FOR DUMMIES, aimed precisely at yours truly …gizmos galore populate the aforementioned equipment and MAKE THINGS POSSIBLE for a tired ol’ scribblin’ buzzard to achieve…not the least gimmick to fall across my binary-driven hard-drive is a wee thing that lets me sing along with other recordings…hence, one of my Bucket List check-off thing-ys is DONE. …by clicking the link below, you will have your ears and patience lambasted… at ENORMOUS expense, I invited into my little cubicle here in Abu Dhabi, the entire Andre Rieu orchestra AND the Massed Pipes and Drums to accompany me as I sing Amazing Grace…I hope you like it, but as they said in that ‘Gone With The Wind’ flick, if ye don’t like it, frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn…ye can  even sing along with it if ye like…it’s made a happy man even older…

PS..Master Andrew Peters is PROHIBITED from listening to this, coz, he’s a real musician…

  1. Whoever Mr Rieu is, I hope he sues!


  2. Do you and Andre plan a stop in Amman on your Spring tour?


  3. That…was undoubtedly the longest 3:02 of my life 🙂
    I’m assuming you ended up on that stage not as the result of any audition, but rather by large amounts of cash greasing influential palms…nevertheless! Strike one off the list, and many kudos for having the cojones to do that – er- singing in public. Well done, my skirted friend…
