So Much Has Happened Since My Last Post & Blue Mountains Cancer Fundraiser Starts In 10 Days

LikIMG_0613 at 25pce I said, much has happened in the last 2 weeks:- NRL, AFL, Prime Ministers plus more AND the Megalong Valley Cancer Fundraiser starts on Saturday 26th September amongst the backdrop of the lovely Blue Mountains.

We’ve had Fathers Day which was both a sad day (my father passed away from Cancer in 2007) and an exciting day as I got a new motorhome (see above) – ok it’s made from Lego but hey…

Dad - Ray Warren 1934 2007

Monday 7th I had to see the optomotrist cause of problems with my eyes since an incident August 31st last year (also CT Scans and other stuff), Deb went into hospital on Wednesday 9th for a knee replacement (still there as I speak/type?) and then the weekend… The Melbourne Storm beat the Sydney Roosters (minor premiers) in the NRL semi finals and hey everyone picked the Roosters (who’s laughing now??) so we’re still in with a chance #purplepride #werunasone.

Also on the weekend I was wrapt as my (and mums) AFL Team Richmond Tigers were in the semi finals after 14 years playing Nth Melbourne Kangaroos (my dad & brothers team).   I think Dad from up there must of helped them as the Tigers went down to the Roos and so goes our finals chance, oh well 2016 it will be.

Oh yeah I also help to pickup a Bofors Gun which we’ll be restoring…

I’ve been busy also laying down tracks and vocals for a song that my mates sister asked me to do as it is about (oops can’t say they might read this) anyway I’m hoping to have it finished before I go to Megalong Valley actually it will be finished.   Must say I am very impressed with my Rode NT1 microphone I purchased earlier in the year, I like how I sound through it compared to my vintage 70’s Shure mic which incidentally I’ve had since the 70’s (still a great mic).   This time I’m using my audio-technica Limited Edition ATH-M50x headphones for monitoring which I must say sound great and no, neither company sponsors me though I could be bought/bribed hint hint… also using Logic Pro X as well as my trusty Mac laptop and desktop.

Went to bed and Tony Abbott (on right) was Prime Minister and when I woke up Malcolm Turnbull (on left) is now Australia’s 29th Prime Minister after defeating Tony Abbott 54 votes to 44 votes for the Liberal Party leadership.   Who knows I might go to sleep with my maternity pillow and Julie Bishop (behind Malcolm above) who is still the Foreign Minister and Deputy Liberal leader could be our 30th Prime Minister.  Hey stranger things…

I am so looking forward to the upcoming Cancer Fundraiser at Megalong Valley in 10 days time yep I will arrive on Friday the 25th and set up ready for Saturday 26th.   Heres some photos…

Last December (2014) I was approached when playing out at the Tomago Bowling & Sporting Club to see if I would be interested in being the main artist at the Family Fun Day Show n Shine.

I was told it was to raise funds for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service so naturally I said yes being that it was for a worthy cause – it would be held on Sunday the 12th April 2015 and would be a Car, Bike and Truck show.

Well we got there on the Saturday and proceeded to set up, sound check and then settle down for a quiet evening with Chris and Lynn the organisers cos people would be arriving at sparrows fart (means b4 sunrise yawn) and they did Chris was walking around at 3am.

we had fun and raised money for a great cause just look at the pictures – cars bikes more
