Happy weekend

This weekend has gone by so quickly, filled with cups of hot coffee to keep me going and plenty of desserts to satisfy the sweet tooth in all of us.

Hope you were able to have a more slow paced weekend than myself. And to think that it will be Monday again tomorrow-back to the daily grind and hard work of nurturing budding musicians and singers.

Here are some links from around the world that might interest you:

Hope you enjoy the last moments of your weekend.
