Putting to rest the second quarter of one's life is never easy. Now combine that with raising a family and trying to keep the "dream alive" makes for some great musical memories.


The songs on Everything Went Mauve came from San Pedro, California and our early adult years in central Virginia. Then, Philip came down from Cambridge and tweaked the ingredients adding his secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices. Finally, we let them simmer. Perhaps too long.

Anchovia (during lockdown) recording a single remotely? We can do that.

This is a little ditty having nothing to do with either Jack nor Dianne, but instead, "Knock Off Warm Yeti" reminds us how to make the most of open tin.
