By Hans Ebert And so you’ve now gone from choosing songs for your wedding to deciding what songs should be played when you’re laid to rest, and as Lennon sang, “Everybody loves you when you’re six feet in the ground”. That was from “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down And Out” off his tremendously underrated- [...]

By Hans Ebert Sinatra sang about how, through it all, he took the blows and did it his way. Before our marriage collapsed under the strain of monotony and reaching that point of no return, my saint of an ex wife would hum that key line from the wistful Peggy Lee song: Is that all [...]

Over the past few months, being the addictive person that I am, the television series, “The Americans”, has had me hooked- a brilliant spy versus spy plot set in the Eighties in the States during the Cold War based around the two KGB agents pretending to live the suburban dream of the every day happily [...]

From a very early age, you’re told by your elders- especially one’s parents- that you’re judged by the company you keep- mainly those you choose to be your friends as, often, they have a marked bearing on how you wish to live your life. As life moves on, this saying also comes to the fore [...]

It was a long and winding road for him and standing in the very long shadows of John and Paul could not have been easy, but since way back to Don’t Bother Me, there was always something about George Harrison that had a huge influence and impact on many lives. Sure, there was Beatle George [...]

TIME TO STOP THIS DISEASE OF CRUELTY

Posted: 26th December 2013 by We-Enhance in LIFE, Love

Thinking back to when I was a kid and stupidly bringing down a beautiful and innocent kingfisher with my catapult still haunts me- and will forever. The words from my parents still echo in my mind. What on earth made me do such a senseless and cruel thing? No idea. All I know is that [...]
