Terrible sound, I know it’s Pancake day but why did they have to have 2 tossers hosting the Backstage At The Brits and the male one was even called Lemon?
The only good thing was the MPG Producer of the year now automatically wins a BRIT but do they show that on the broadcast? maybe I blinked!

What a great way to spend a Tuesday evening.The sessions alternate between Sontag and the Village. Playing with great musicians and learning lots of things, like improvisation and stuff that I could never do onstage and never really had the time to learn. Love my little Hammond SK2 and Leslie 2101, both sound great.

I always thought I stayed away from MSG!!!!!! for allergies. Sure didn’t know it is in all this stuff.
The content of this article has links to substantiate its claims – Scary stuff! MSG (a slow poison)
The food additive MSG (Mono-Sodium Glutamate) is a slow poison. MSG hides behind 25 or more names, such as “Natural Flavoring.” MSG is even in your favorite coffee from Tim Horton’s and Starbucks coffee shops!
I wondered if there could be an actual chemical causing the massive obesity epidemic, and so did a friend of mine, John Erb. He was a research assistant at the University of Waterloo in Ontario , Canada and spent years working for the government. He made an amazing discovery while going through scientific journals for a book he was writing called The Slow Poisoning of America .
In hundreds of studies around the world, scientists were creating obese mice and rats to use in diet or diabetes test studies. No strain of rat or mice is naturally obese, so scientists have to create them. They make these creatures morbidly obese by injecting them with MSG when they are first born.
The MSG triples the amount of insulin the pancreas creates, causing rats (and perhaps humans) to become obese. They even have a name for the fat rodents they create: “MSG-Treated Rats.
When I heard this, I was shocked. I went into my kitchen and checked the cup-boards and the refrigerator. MSG was in everything — the Campbell’s soups, the Hostess Doritos, the Lays flavored potato chips, Top Ramen, Betty Crocker Hamburger Helper, Heinz canned gravy, Swanson frozen prepared meals andKraft salad dressings, especially the “healthy low-fat” ones.
The items that didn’t have MSG marked on the product label had something called “Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein”, which is just another name for Monosodium Glutamate.
It was shocking to see just how many of the foods we feed our children everyday are filled with this stuff. MSG is hidden under many different names in order to fool those who read the ingredient list, so that they don’t catch on. (Other names for MSG are “Accent, Ajinomoto,” “Natural Meat Tenderizer,” etc.)
But it didn’t stop there. More

A really good night! myself and Terry Bishop played a selection of our favourite songs for all our friends and neighbours in Canillas.
Thanks also to Mark Shurey (Pimientito) for playing some amazing classical and flamenco guitar. See you all next year when we hope to give a concert each month through the spring and summer and shall be inviting guest musicians and singers for each event.
