Hitchhiker’s Guide, Rodriguez and Comfort Food

1   BBC Radio 4 has done it again! This morning it was a live version of Douglas Adams’  Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy with the original cast from the BBC radio series. As a family, we loved this and played it in the car on the long journeys from Yorkshire to Cornwall to visit my parents, resulting in knowing much of it by heart!

2    Serendipity struck happily again this week (love that word and all it means!)  Several days ago, friends shared the music of Sixto Rodriguez with me and I loved it. Then, not knowing about that, another good friend lent us the dvd, Searching for Sugarman, about two fans’ search for Sixto after he disappeared from the music scene. I know my South African readers will know this story – just want everyone else to know too!
