The lurgy and some laughs

Woke up with a headache to complement the sore throat. Had panadol for breakfast and went to work. Made an appointment to see a local homeopath on Friday. Then by lunchtime I felt decidedly shaky and nauseous so I called my GP and I now am officially sick, with the regulation antibiotics for what the doctor thinks is an upper respiratory tract infection. Maybe with the homeopath visit I'll have all my bases covered and be feeling better soon.
I slept most of the afternoon, letting the drugs full reign on me.

Then to put a grin on my chin I reviewed some favourite youtube clips and thought I'd share these two, both with a Japanese flavour....

Human Tetris game show

Bob with full orchestra at Nara, Japan 1994
This is very different to the early version of 'Hard Rain' with just his strumming and harmonica his voice seems to fill up and extend to meet the orchestra halfway.

I'll walk to the depths of the deepest black forest,
Where the people are many and their hands are all empty,
Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters,
Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison,
Where the executioner's face is always well hidden,
Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten,
Where black is the color, where none is the number,
And I'll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it,
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it,
Then I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin',
But I'll know my song well before I start singin'......
