Frozen Princess Emily's Magical Party

Emily and Friends
It's always nice when Andy's Magic—Children's Entertainer and Magician—gets a local booking. Emily's 6th Birthday party was held at The St Ambrose Church Hall in Kidderminster which is an ideal room for a children's party. All her friends and family attended and it was great fun from start to finish.

Emily and her friends loved dancing in the bubbles to their favourite music from the Disney Animated movie, Frozen. Songs like: 'Let it Go', 'Love is an Open Door' and 'Do you want to Build a Snowman' kept them very happy indeed.

After a break for food we all gathered around a fantastic Frozen themed birthday cake and sung 'Happy Birthday' and then Emily blew out all the candles—that actually spelt 'Birthday Girl'—in one go. It was soon time for Andy's Magic Show and during the break many of the children kept running over and telling me how they'd seen me loads of times before and couldn't wait to see the show again. Emily was brilliant as a Magician's assistant. To finish all the kids received a balloon animal each.

It was lovely meeting everyone at the party in Kidderminster and special thanks to Albert and his and his family for their hospitality and booking me for this event. I hope to see you all again very soon.

David Jason, Del Boy & Abbey National Adverts

Here's the second Saturday Morning Laugh-Out-Loud and features one of Britain's best loved comedy actors.

Only Fools and Horses
has become one of Britain's favorite situation comedies. Written by the late, great John Sullivan it made house hold names of many of its stars including David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst. It also produced some more of the most memorable moments in comedy history including the unforgettable: 'Batman and Robin' scene, remember the hilarious falling though the bar episode - 'Yuppy Love', and who didn't laugh at the classic moment from 'A Touch of Glass' when Granddad, Rodney and Del Boy are attempting to clean some very expensive chandeliers which ends with disastrous consequences. It's true to say that Only Fools and Horses really is comedy gold.

So we all remember David Jason in 'Fools and Horses' but who remembers him playing a very Del-Boy-like character in those Abbey National television adverts which are certainly written in  the style of John Sullivan. In both adverts David Jason is joined on screen by Patricia Brake, best known as the daughter of Fletcher in 'Porridge' and 'Going Straight'. And it wasn't only The Abbey National that jumped on the Lovable Rogue / Wheeler Dealer band wagon. Around the same time The Leeds Building Society featured George Cole, complete with an Arthur Daley trilby in their 'Leeds Liquid Gold Adverts'.

I'd certainly forgotten these little gems until I spotted them on YouTube. I believe all 'Fools and Horses' fans will love these. I don't know how many were made but here's the two I could find - enjoy them.

Washington Crossing to Delaware - An Annagrammatic Poem

Washing Crossing to Delaware
Writing poetry is hard enough, sonnets are even more difficult but to try and write a sonet where every line is an anagram of the title would seem an impossible task. But that's exactly what David Shulman set about doing in 1936. Shulman, an American lexicographer and cryptographer, succeeded in completing a twelve-line rhyming poem with all twelve lines being an anagram of its title. The sonet, and it's tittle, were inspired and taken from the magical 'Washington Crossing the Delaware' painting (see photo)  by Emanuel Gottieb Luetze. It's an amazing accomplishment, a wonderful intriguing poem and both sonet and painting perfectly commemorates General George Washington's crossing of the Delaware River on those cold nights in December 25th—26th, 1776.

Washington Crossing to Delaware
A hard, howling, tossing water scene.
Strong tide was washing hero clean.
"How cold!" Weather stings as in anger.
O Silent night shows war ace danger!
The cold waters swashing on in rage.
Redcoats warn slow his hint engage.
When star general's action wish'd "Go!"
He saw his ragged continentals row.
Ah, he stands – sailor crew went going.
And so this general watches rowing.
He hastens – winter again grows cold.
A wet crew gain Hessian stronghold.
George can't lose war with's hands in;
He's astern – so go alight, crew, and win!
