This is my favourite carol; we sung it last night at our Service of Nine Lessons and Carols in St Mary's Church, Thornbury.

Received a text message from the Vodafone 2222 traffic service this morning warning me of the treacherous conditions on the roads. This is presumably because I use the service a lot. It is really good and I am surprised not more people know about it. I use it all the time when I am travelling long distances on the motorways to tell me where the hold-ups are. Highly recommended.

Just found these fantastic YouTube videoclips of Raul Prieto playing Durufle's Toccata and Danse Macabre by Saint-Saens - a must-see for any organist! You can see his website here: www.raulprieto.net. I have an organ music playlist here which contains some of my favourite organ music.

I saw the first pair of goldfinches in my garden today. This is months after putting the Nyjer feeder (see above - from the RSPB shop) in my garden several months ago. At last, they have got the message probably because it was frosty all day.
