[late evening listening] not even the chair

The trouble with Neil Diamond is that someone like me can't present any of his songs. It started out with Solitary Man but that would have led to false speculation, then Cherry Cherry but that might have caused trouble in certain quarters. Next was Red, Red Wine but I don't want you getting the wrong idea. Holly Holy seems to be about some girl. You'll Be a Woman Soon would be just great to run on this blog, wouldn't it?

Ho hum, which Neil Diamond song to use? I Am, I Said? Just listened to it now and it has its own problems as a statement. Hmmmm - a nice, non-controversial song, please Neil?

Oh, to hell with non-controversial. Now reader/listener - this one is not about me, not about my current toothache and muscle spasms, not about any desire on my part whatsoever - it's just a Neil Diamond song and a good one too:

LOL@ cute link for Cherie. He's smooth as velvet,eh Cherie? :)

James, you alter the pixels[is that the right pc lingo?] on your Utube vids so they don't always play. I wonder if you know that?

Re the youtube, thanks for the feedback. On my screen, the 500px wide plays with about 80px left over. It seems, from your comment, that 500px is too wide.

I'll put the next one smaller and see how it is. However, there is another problem and they don't play for me either unless I bring up the post in permalink, which for Blogger is the date below the post.

Then they play. Try that first and then if they still sodn't play, I'll go to a smaller size.

In my blogger template I found that width 445 was the maximum you could use with the border round it.

I you weren't using the border the maximum width was 450.

I don't know if that helps.

It does and I wasn't aware people weren't able to access it.


At first I thought you just had bad luck of the draw but no one has that much bad luck[except for me] so figured there was a problem with your formatting.

It will be nice to hear/see the videos.

Impressed with your pc speak Cherie[even though I don't get it]

I only had a problem with one of them.

But you can double click on the vid and it opens You Tube page in a new window and you can view it from there ;-)
