A Picture of a Poem – a Poetry and Photography exhibition with a difference.

Last night, I was delighted to be invited to attend The Picture of a Poem, an exhibition out on at Dimbola lodge, which is part of my Wightbuzz network. What a treat we had in store. We met two very talented young men who presented their poetry and photography.

I would like to introduce you to Sam Scadgell & Harrison Wavell


It was an absolute delight to be part of this preview evening.

If I had one wish





Smiling is infectious, you catch it like the flu
When someone smiled at me today I started smiling too
I walked around the corner and someone saw me grin
When he smiled I realised I had passed it on to him
I thought about that smile and then realised its worth
A single smile like mine could travel round the earth
So if you feel a smile begin don’t leave it undetected
Lets start an epidemic and get the world infected.  (Author unknown)


So which three people would you make smile and why?


Saturday Night at the Movies

What a wonderful Saturday night it was. The best in ages. Ruth and her team of willing helpers had a night off. On a monthly basis, they spend much time and effort researching and preparing an International evening at Ryde Methodist Church in Garfield Road. This time though, they were able to sit and enjoy as church member, Paul Arnold, supervised his catering students from the Isle of Wight college. He put his students through their paces an what an excellent job they did. The food was delicious, the entertainment brilliant and the quiz not too hard. Many of the audience participated by dressing up either as film characters or as film goers. Myself and my giggly granny friend, Julie, donned our tiaras and feather boas, leaving a trail of feathers all night! There was even a red carpet. Suffice it to say, an excellent evening was had by all.
