Dinah: David?

David: Yesss.

Dinah: You have been learning karate.

David: Yes, I’m afraid so.

Dinah: That’s right. Now, I wanted to see you in action, because I think it’s fascinating and I wondered why you went into karate.



I have some great news! It’s up! After really popular demand (about 50 messages asking me for it between this account and my Instagram account 😬😄) I have finally managed to upload the full interview from 1976 with Dinah Shore online to Dailymotion 🙂😘 enjoy ! ❤✨

I don’t know how long it will be on there for, I’m really hoping the copyright police don’t remove it 😬 xx

Illustration of pirate Bartholomew Roberts commemorating his capture of 11 ships with only two of his own. He was able to do this by surprising the captains of the 11 ships, who were on shore negotiating. Roberts, posthumously called “Black Bart,” captured over 400 ships, more than any other pirate of the 1700s, operating off both the Americas and Africa.

I’ve watched memory wound you.
I felt nothing but envy.
Having slept in wet meadows,
I was not through desiring.
Imagine January and the beach,
a bleached sky, gulls. And
look seaward: what is not there
is there, isn’t it, the huge
bird of the first light
arched above first waters
beyond our touching or intention
or the reasonable shore.
—  Robert Hass, To a Reader

“My favorite tv show” is a phrase which pisses me off because it comes across as so simple and meaningless, but House was never meaningless to me. Two years since it ended, and yet I still sit here and cry as I type this. It was much more than just “my favorite tv show”, and although they didn’t do it for me, I cannot thank those who created that show week in and week out enough.

Thank you.
