The Importance of Good Communication...........



Hullo ma wee blog,

As it's almost Christmas {and I'm supposed to be wrapping presents for my Lovely G at the moment!} I am listening to a couple or three of favourite funnies which just happen to share the theme of communication. Victor Borge was a great favourite in our house when I was growing up and I remember these two pieces vividly. I loved this great Dane for his clever wit and his comic timing as well as his incredible musical virtuosity.



And finally one of the greatest comedy talents of my generation who had just an immense love of the potential  for the playfullness inherent in the spoken word. One of my all time favourite clips....




Merry Christmas Everybody!!!!

See you later.

Thanks for putting these clips up Alistair, I'd forgotten how funny Victor Borge could be. My Dad loved his acts, so we often watched him on TV.

BTW, I love Calvin & Hobbes as well, I was so sad when Sam Watterson stopped drawing them; they always cheered me up.

Have a guid new year and a non-abstemious Hogmanay
