“Daily Prompt: Always Something There to Remind Me
by Krista on March 2, 2014
A song comes on the radio and instantly, you’re transported to a different time and place. Which song(s) bring back memories for you and why? Be sure to mention the song, and describe the memory it evokes.”
When we moved from my hometown to a new unknown neighbourhood this song played nonstop on the radio.

No Matter What by Boyzone – it still makes me nervous when I hear it.

When I started my first job. This song played nonstop.

 Bright Blue – Weeping

When I went into hospital for an operation a year ago. This song was very popular.

The end were not exactly the words I wanted to hear. Adele – Skyfall.

A South African song that makes me feel good is this one.

Takes me back to when I was working for the skunk. Freshly Ground – I’d like.

This South African song was popular when I started working for Johnny the Chinese guy.

The Parlotones – Push me to the floor. Fun video :)

I hope you enjoyed my trip down memory lane, more posts



Harold Ramos RIP

Image from:

Another one of my favourite actor/directors has passed away.

“Ramis was born on November 21, 1944, in Chicago, Illinois, the son of Ruth (née Cokee) and Nathan Ramis, shopkeepers who owned the store Ace Food & Liquor Mart on the city’s far North Side. While Ramis had a Jewish upbringing, in his adult life he did not practice any religion. In May 2010, Ramis contracted an infection that resulted in complications from autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis. He lost the ability to walk; after relearning to do so, he suffered a relapse of the disease in late 2011. On February 24, 2014, Ramis died at his Chicago-area home from complications arising from vasculitis.He was 69 years old.”

“He started his career as a writer by penning arts stories for his local newspaper and editing Playboy magazine’s “party jokes” section.”

“Ramis played Dr. Egon Spengler in the Ivan Reitman cult comedy “Ghostbusters,” which also starred actor Bill Murray. In 1993, he co-wrote, produced and directed “Groundhog Day,” about a weatherman, played by Bill Murray, who relives the same day over and over again. Other films he co-wrote and directed include “Analyze This” in 1999, a comedy about a psychiatrist whose main patient is an insecure mobster. Starring Robert DeNiro and Billy Crystal, it was followed two years later by a sequel, “Analyze That.”

Still open all hours

For those of you who haven’t seen the one off Christmas Special 2013 of Open all hours here is the full episode.

For review you can read the comments here:

Unfortunately Sir David Jason switched between accents and tried to portray Arkwright and Granville’s characters simultaneosly.

For a blast of fun watch the pilot episode with “army sergeant” type Nurse Gladys Emmanuel.


H A P P Y  N E W  Y E A R!


I know you can’t wait to see these, haha




There’s a good reason why Sylvester Stallone not so subtly hinted that Bruce Willis was “greedy” and “lazy” for dropping out of The Expendables 3: the latter’s $1 million-a-day fee for an extended cameo was outrageous.

A source close to the matter tells The Hollywood Reporter that the Rocky star, who created the aging action heroes franchise, was none too pleased that the Die Hard actor refused producers’ offer of $3 million for four consecutive days of work on location in Bulgaria for the latest sequel.

“He said he’d drop out unless he got $4 million,” the insider told the trade. “A million dollars a day. Stallone and everybody else involved said no.” -

With some gusto, Stallone revealed that he had signed another actor to replace Willis in the forthcoming sequel. “WILLIS OUT … HARRISON FORD IN!!!!”, he wrote on Twitter. “GREAT NEWS!!!!! Been waiting years for this!!!!” His next tweet has been widely cited as a reference to Willis’s departure as Mr Church: “GREEDY AND LAZY … A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE.”

Ford will join fellow newcomers Jackie Chan and Nicolas Cage as Stallone’s musclebound crew of mercenaries-for-hire embark on a new mission in The Expendables 3. Sly himself returns as team leader Barney Ross, while past instalments have seen action legends such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jet Li and Dolph Lundgren battle it out on the big screen. It is not clear whether Ford will replace Willis as Mr Church or will be handed a new role.

They are action-hero veterans and business partners who once joined forces to flog burgers through their Planet Hollywood chain.

But now Sylvester Stallone has branded his fellow ageing film star Bruce Willis lazy and a failure, after the Die Hard actor departed from the lucrative Expendables franchise.
