OK ! Just to settle the rumours out there … yes – in the ‘boys wearing frocks’ movement, I was ahead of you all ! This is a young Brian May as Lady Mary Lazenby in “The Admirable Crichton” by J. M. Barrie. It was the School Play at Hampton Grammar School – I was probably 14 years old. Ours was an all-boys school – which was said to have advantages at the time. In retrospect, I think it scarred me for life. But the drama was fun ! Of course, in Shakespeare’s time (a little before Barrie) the women’s parts on stage were customarily played by men. And, in other news, J. M. Barrie is best known as the creator of Peter Pan, the well-known advocate of Not Growing Up. Gotta love J. M. Barrie!
I am front centre.
Veganuarians !!! Help is at hand ! Veganuary 2020 is making me new friends. We have our favourite Italian restaurants where we live, and will always have our loyalties to them. But looking for the perfect vegan dinner had led me to seek out new pastures. This lovely totally Italian restaurant is tucked away in a one-way street and I just happened to pop in to ask them if I could book a family meal, and by the way, could they do vegan food ?? It just so happened they had just introduced a whole new menu of vegan options this week ! And this is serious ! Amazing ! Delicious ! All the luxury of traditional Italian cooking and Vegan too. We were all blown away. I don’t usually do advertising as such but – if you’re on the trail of a more ethical and more healthy way of eating – that doesn’t hurt !!! … and you’re in the area … perfect ! See 3-D views of Aubergine Delight and Spaghetti Edamame Extravaganza !!! And the menu.
Yep !! On day 12 of Veganuary I’m enjoying it more than ever !! Thanks Ronnie [seventhmoon] for this inspirational artwork !!!
Look out for an announcement on Australia at 7pm today.
Dr And Mrs May enjoying some Classic Italian food, Vegan style. Anita has not signed up for Veganuary but has been vegetarian/pescatarian for years. She’s been enjoying my Vegan adventures with me and supporting by cooking some of them ! Of course I will be sorrowfully saying goodbye to Anita for 6 weeks on Tuesday. The Touring Life looks very glamorous from afar, and it does have wonderful moments, but it’s still a tough commitment, living without your family and friends and animals for weeks on end. It’s not a life everyone would thrive on. But … for us … and I know we’re lucky to be able to say it … it’s what we do.
YES !!! It’s official. We’re donating our stage from our QAL show the previous night in Sydney for this great line-up of talent to raise money for Bushfire Relief. FIRE FIGHT AUSTRALIA will kick off from 1pm and run till late at ANZ Stadium, Sydney Olympic Park on Sunday 16 February 2020.
