An historic Week In More Ways Than One.....

So America got a new leader in Mr Obama and the honkjazz allotment got it's shed. I'll let you decide which one holds more hope for the future of mankind.....
Here's some photo's of the momentus occasion although the camera on my phone is tat...


So yesterday was the first birthday of the Honkjazz Allotment. One year old. And how did we celebrate this mammoth landmark? We spent the weekend collecting, repairing and putting up a shed, thats how! S'right, after harping on about getting a shed all year we finally made the big jump and pushed on out there. "Out there" being the end of the village high street and "big jump" being collected for free. I'll ask Snip to get down there this week with a camera because I know you're all gasping to see this wonder of the world. She did take a photo of the team on completion of the shedness so maybe Herb will put that up soon to mark the occasion. Massive thanks to the amazing Mr Simon. His energy, common sense, uncommon sense and ability to curse were limitless and we owe him a lot of beers for his brilliant efforts.
And I got to ride in the back of a van!!!! (squeee)
So, photographs pending.
This really heralds the new year in well for us. I'll put together a post listing the truimphs and failures, lessons learned, star buys, tastiest treats, etc. Like the Oscars but with all of the back-stage drama, tears and tantrums thrown in. And onions. Lots of onions (perhaps thats why they all cry so much?).
We can also reveal our masterplan for the year and let me tell you its a ripsnorterbanger. The tension is palpabale!!
So lots to come in the next couple of weeks. And don't forget the radio show. We'll be starting an Allotment Tune Of The Month section and I might play a couple of my own tracks as well. Linky is on this page somewhere, not sure where.
Laters potaters.

Extra New Years Treat.. a bit late....

Yep we really are spoiling you and to ensure that you all feel loved as we move into 2009 - we have put up part 1 of New Years Eve Mega Monster 6 hour Mash that Honkjazz ably smashed all over (be warned there is one f word during a clip from the legend that is Bill Hicks, so if there are minors listening then tell em to get back down the pit!!). Parts 2 & 3 may make it up before the end of 09 but it did get messy so the editing could take a while....... anyhew enjoy it there's some rather loverly tunes in there.....somewhere...

Into The Future

And a Merry New Year to you to!
We both hope that you had a wonderful festive break and a battysmasher of a New Years Eve. For me Christmas was spent in a whirlwind of family visiting, country walks, pub visits and fine foods. New Years Eve was spent over at Honkjazz Towers broadcasting on Purple Radio and we had a blast. The show was supposed to be two hours long but we went and doned a six hour show just because we could!!! So what better way to greet you all in 2009 than with a short burst from the sharpest comic mind in Britain. Huzzah!
