🎙 This is amazing. Brian May only discovered that his solo album Back To The Light was unavailable when he was trying to create an Instagram Story, looking for one of his own songs to accompany the post.
🎶 Album Club #135.
🎶 This cover of Les Fleurs by Minnie Riperton gave me goosebumps. They completely nail it.
Redactle #19 completely defeated me. I’m going to have limit my time or number of guesses in the future, as trying to complete one could easily spill into hours. Once you know the answer it all makes sense, but there was no way I was ever going to find it.
With the Twitter takeover news, here’s my shoutout to micro.blog from last year. It’s a wonderful place to spend time in. Like a mature version of Twitter from the early days, without many of the features that drive toxic behaviour.

🎶 New tunes.
🎙 This podcast episode by Herts for Learning with Stuart Lawrence on the topic of Being Black and British in Education is an excellent listen.
Redactle is insanely difficult. You have to guess the title of the heavily-redacted Wikipedia page, which reveals its contents to you as you find the redacted words. I solved my first one today in a pitiful 160 guesses; my wife is very smug that she did it in 59.
📚 So there was another Kamala Harris?
📷 Not long now until the beech trees that line our back gardens burst out with their fresh leaves. The vivid green colour of new leaves is startling. They will also drastically reduce the amount of bird mess landing on our decking below.
I’ve always thought of Macbeth as a very sparse and dark play, in the style of the extraordinary 1979 performance with Ian McKellen and Judi Dench that we saw at school. We’re about to watch it at Shakespeare’s Globe theatre, in the beautiful sunshine.
📚 Oooh, a beautiful new book turned up today.
Today we had a magnificent lunch in Bristol.
📷 Surprisingly, we lost our appetites.
📷 Spring flower.
📷 Málaga sunrise.
📷 Flying over Spain. So many wind turbines! 🇪🇸
