Music is a huge part of my life yet I don’t really write that much about it here. Odd that.


I now have three Mozilla applications installed, Firefox, Thunderbird and Sunbird (calendar application). I know have three separate folders in my Start menu, one for each. Why not one top level folder “Mozilla” and then sub-folder per application?


I have around £8 in my iTunes Music Store account. Which tracks should I buy?

UPDATE: New NIN track isn’t out yet! Kenny Burell – “Summertime” in the shopping cart so far.
A quick guide to my musical tastes (why didn’t I post that last night?)


Gardeners: We have a plant in our garden which I really like, it grows leafs like long very thick grass to about two feet high and then produces orange flowers spread up a central stalk. I’ve been under the, obviously wrong, impression that it’s called “lumbrecia” (my spelling based on my pronunciation), but Google says nothing.

Any suggestions? It’s very common, I’ve seen it loads of places but have obviously been calling it the wrong thing. Numbrecia? Mumbreshia? Neuromancer??

UPDATE: Montbretia, also known as Crocosmia. Thank you, thank you, thank you. P.S. Mum, I meant to ask you about this last night!
