Melanie, I Agree With You

Melanie, I Agree With You

For years I thought that the roller skate song belonged to Janis Joplin until in May by a campfire I realised it was Melanie. In her magical song Brand New Key which I love for its attitude, its simplicity and its childlike almost nursery like beat (if that were the correct musical term here); there is this lyric that really resonates with me at the moment when she says: 


"I ride my bike I rollerskate don't drive no car, Don't go too fast but I go pretty far, For somebody who don't drive, I've been all around the world, Some people say I've done alright for a girl."

Sometimes I feel a little like Melanie. Don't go too fast, gone pretty far and you know what, some people say I've done alright for a girl (I would like girl to be gender neutral here please). Wink emoji. 

New bow ties have been loaded onto the website and to all those that have put up with me for all these years and still use our website, I don't deserve you, but I thank you anyway.
