Late Night FDL: Days Like This

Van Morrison – Days Like This

Arise, Sir Van…!

Singer-songwriter Van Morrison and US actor Kevin Spacey have been given knighthoods in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list.

The Belfast-born star has been recognised for services to music, and tourism in Northern Ireland, the inspiration for many of his hits.

Morrison said: “Throughout my career I have always preferred to let my music speak for me, and it is a huge honour to now have that body of work recognised in this way.”

Well, I’m back at work tonite…! Be nice…!

    Hi, gang. Tut, sorry I didn’t respond to you last night, but felt my usual flummoxed-ness with this new system and took off for the tall timber.

    The main virtue of retirement so far is that I have more time to do my errands.

    “The police in Overton Texas have scored another victory over neighborhood lemonade stands. We have periodically seen these cases where police swoop down on stands run by kids in one of the oldest traditions of American life. I do not blame the police as much as the City of Overton for failing to have a code that can accommodate such kid lemonade stands or a modicum of discretion afforded to police in the enforcement of city permit regulations. In the meantime, Andria and Zoey Green’s business is closed by order of the city.”
