Down by the riverside 
Just came back from the regional brass band contest - as usual, I don't know the results yet, but it went down really well. We finished with the Radetsky march. The announcer described the piece, and then dramatically introduced us. The conductor started, but nothing happened. He tried again, but nothing happened. Then we burst in at double speed. It went on like that until one section where the band played in a swing tempo, and two of us jump up playing a solo, simultaneously. I played Down By The Riverside at full volume, which fits The Radetsky March remarkably well. The conductor pretended to get more and more annoyed. We then switched to kazoos for the next section, and finally finished the piece with the conductor still conducting. Went down really well.

It's warm and sunny here, although the weather won't settle into summer until mid December. But we might be going to the beach to have dinner shortly.

The Big Meeting has been postponed until tomorrow morning. I'm just hoping this will be the end of it, and that Bronwyn can get on with her job whether she stays there or not.
