A Nice Bit of Posh...

Saturday 8th March and Tuesday 11th March 2008

"Oh golly, oh gosh come lie on the couch with a nice bit of posh from Burnham-on-Crouch"
Ian Dury and the Blockhead, "Billericay Dickie" 1977.

These have to be one of my all time favourite song lyrics, plus Burnham-on Crouch ( a small dead-end sailing village)in Essex is my home town.
When I heard that the multi talented singer-songwriter Kate Walsh, is also from Burnham, I couldn't believe it.We met up when she first came to the States and had a lot to chat about. I went to see her perform at Union Hall in Brooklyn last week and she was great.

A few days before that I'd been invited around old friend and T-magazine writer Armand Limnander's for a little get together with some Dom P and posh culinary treats. I was in fishy nibble and champagne heaven...
