I went today with my lovely friends John Schmersal and Toko Yasuda, to see the Bob Baker Marionettes, downtown LA.

There's something magical about this place, it's like going back in time to the 1950's, to a fairy grotto, where joyous puppets perform to crackly vinyl.

A splendid time was had by all - I urge everyone to go and support this wonderful place.


In 12 days time it is David Cassidy's birthday, as well as mine.

I remember vividly and fondly reading Jackie magazine whenever he was on the cover, which was practically every week in 1973.

He was gorgeous, with that breathy voice all teenage girls swooned over.


Talking of puppets, it's a mixed up muddled up shook up world, but war is over, if we want it.
