Be sure to get out this week to see the Tulip festival around Rosalind Park and the Fountain. Last weekend the conservatory was emptied out and most likely a large display will be on in there as well. These Tulips provide a rather interesting perspective to the photos taken last evening. Quite different, and as can be seen they haven’t opened yet, well at least the yellow ones haven’t – most likely the frigid evenings we’re having this week. Now pushed past the 700 mark in terms of photos for Bendigo Scenic. It’s moving forward quite nicely, and surely October will be the month it gets to 1000 Photos. 14 October is a key day, so lets see if we can get it done by then.
OK music for the evening. 2nd concert was in Montreal in 1979. Having grown up an hour west of there, we always listened into CHOM 97.7 FM, a very progressive rock station.
Sometimes it would come in clear as a bell, and at others the reception was very bad. FM transmission degrades after 60-70 km. Of course today one can listen from anywhere there is internet reception. A bit of fun this evening listening in to see what is new there in Montreal now.
By the summer of 1979, this band was for some reason very popular amongst Montrealers, their songs always playing on CHOM and so they toured to Canada and the US to introduce their new Album, “Breakfast in America”. Partner in crime for the evening at Parc Jerry was Alex Martin. Not sure where you ended up Alex, but that was one fantastic evening. Still not sure how we navigated the Metro all the way back to St. Jean afterwards, but it was worth every minute.
