Friday night and Saturday morning

On Friday we followed the now traditional Akehurst karaoke birthday party at my favourite Chinese restaurant, Shanghai, in Dalston, with a visit to the Dalston Jazz Bar.

I discovered that I can't sing Californication by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, but redeemed myself with all 13 verses of 12 for the Chimes on the Kremlin Clock, The Red Flag, The Internationale, Bandiera Rossa and Song of the Soviet Airmen at the end of the dinner.

I have the pictures of a large part of the Hackney Labour Group doing YMCA by the Village People, but don't feel it would be fair to my readers (or good for the dignity of the people involved) to share them on the worldwide web.
Saturday was a lot more sedate - a walk round Clissold Park to see spring arriving in Stoke Newington:

And it's higher and higher and higher,
We raise our emblem the Soviet Star,
With every propeller blade turning,
In defence of the USSR

Do you sing the "We're off to Moscow in a tank, where the icepicks glisten in the snow" intro?

Dear Luke

Spring has arrived when the rare chestnut tree leafs in the playing field area adjacent to the path from the lodge on Green Lanes to the House - just to the right of the pictures you posted - usually two weeks before the rest of the magnificent chestnuts in the People's Park of Clissold, Stoke Newington.
