all quiet?

I hate to tempt fate, but things do seem quieter today up North. I say that from my comfortable nook in Jerusalem, I can't even imagine what it must have been like to be in bunkers for 34 days straight. Fingers crossed, all will continue.

Couldn't sleep last night. We got home from the cinema at 12.30 and then I went and looked at the news. Bad idea. I got so upset seeing the names of the soldiers who were killed, and reading an article about the death of David Grossman's son, Uri, that I couldn't get to sleep until around 4am. Must not read news before bed... must not read news before bed.

Here's my first picture posting:
You can try and guess who they are and what they're up to. Correct answer wins... A Major Prize.

Somehow I don't think it is a past production of ours!

Are people playing didgeridoos? Or native American equivalent?

You're right about the first point, you couldn't get away with wearing that on a stage near us. Didgeridoos? Nope. Native American? Getting a little closer....

it's the biennial peace-pipe fight between the leaders of the dripgrib and hwangbam tribes.

they spend two years making peace pipes out of reclaimed silver paper found in the nests of bald-headed eagles.

then they hijack a broadway stage production, usually something serious, like the lion king.... and they fight in slow motion.

the one who bends the other's pipe the most, wins.

but there are bonus points for the pipe with the greatest reflectability.

the end result is usually a tie.

wow, Vanessa, you're close. I'll put you all out of your misery. It's the Amazionian shaman "singing" group NeuNeuNeu that we went to see at the Royal Festival Hall in London. J's idea of a fun night out!

Well I guess we could try that next!
