Marty's "Living life in chapters" A self development blog

Wednesday, October 11, 2006


Greetings fellow bloggers!

Well, what a couple of days. If anything has come out of this, I've
noticed that my PC is suddenly running much better on the internet. A
couple of days ago, I was getting very slow responses to page views,
particularly on 360 (that didn't happen via the PC at work). Since I've
re-installed the modem drivers, everything else seems to work fine now.

I've just got back from town having picked up some new carpet for the girls room and a replacement telephone. All it has proved is that there is still a problem with getting a dial tone. Internet is fine, for some weird reason.

The Karaoke discs I ordered arrived this morning. I'm really impressed. 10 cdg disks with over 70 songs on them in a nice carry case and a list of all the songs in alphabetical order printed out for me. All this for £35! Thats just over £3 per disk. Its got all the good old traditional Karaoke songs on too.

Now.... The Colonel got very excited when he saw the Karaoke machine. He's always fancied himself at treading the boards. Bit of Gilbert & Sullivan never went amis. The Mikado, Pirates of Penzance and such like. So..... here's a little taster of your friend and mine!

Well Done! Thats a vast improvement on the Elvis version of that as far as I'm concerned! Glad to see all is tickety boo now, chocks away Ginger....

Colonel you look like a kid playing and trying to learn how to use a mic for the first time with a big smile, yeah true. You did it in a very natural manner. Please keep up the good work.

ooooo i love that's not me saying that i can sing in anyway but i do love to grab the mic and belt out 'love shack' by the B52's.
I was not blessed with the voice of an angel i think i got my vocal talent from my Dads side of the family coz no one there can hold a tune either. My Mum and Aunty Janette can always pull off Bobbys Girl or Stoopid Cupid and my Mums favourite seems to be oh erm....what is it called again i think it's 'Please Stay' and it always brings a tear to my eye when she has a few vodkas and gives us a song.
Happy singing Marty and i hope the family is well and you let them have a shot of the kareoke aswell. xxx

Colonel. Always a pleasure to hear from you. Tell Marty to get better soon, that old windbag. I wish he'd let you get a little more time with us. He likes to hog the limelight a bit doesn't he?

You can tell him I said that.

LOL Marty...that was just too much. My daughter got a karoke machine a few years ago, but I can't carry a tune tied up in a paper sack... thanks for sharing.
