I'm currently taking a much needed vacation in northern California (Mill Valley), visiting family: my sister Lesley and musician brother-in-law, Austin de Lone, and their two offspring: Caroline and Richard de Lone. I always find that going away on holiday gives me loads of fresh ideas and this trip is no exception. I had decided not to take my laptop so that I could take a break and rest my hands, but as there is a iMac in my bedroom in the holiday house, I am compelled to write ..... after I go to the Mabel John concert (her special guests are Bonnie Raitt and Austin de Lone's daughter, Caroline de Lone and the Christmas Jug Band's gigs while I'm here.
