The Day Before Boxing Day

I hope everyone had a nice day yesterday. This was my first Christmas sans my mother, but I decided to bring her ashes to Brighton so that she could have a last mince pie and glass of wine at my brother's house. By this time next year, I'm sure we'll have scattered her in the usual place...


The rest of us had a good time, too. The weather was preternaturally fine, and the sea off Brighton beach a Mediterranean blue. Here my brother and I contemplate the westering sky.


Tomorrow, it's back to Bristol - but let me leave you with a random question I just asked on Facebook, to (so far) no response. I know of two songs about generation ships: Neil Young's, 'After the Goldrush' and Queen's ''39' (which, unsurprisingly, was written by Brian May). Do you know of any others? Four, and we have an Only Connect music question!
