It's all about the bangles...



2017 is here, and (of course) it's raining and miserable - which is just what one does not need when shaking off a hangover...

However, let's start as we mean to go on, my dears! There are some things that will always lift the spirits, and one of them is today's birthday boy Señor Xavier Cugat! Here he is in glorious Technicolour (in one of those Esther Williams Hollywood extravaganzas Neptunes Daughter). It's Jungle Rhumba!


Just what the doctor ordered.

Xavier Cugat (born Francisco d'Asís Javier Cugat Mingall de Bru i Deulofeu, 1st January 1900 – 27th October 1990)

  1. It is glorious and sunny here in Philadelphia, thankfully for all the mummery, although my window rollers were drawn till recently.....how can you see with all that light? Just last night saw a wonderful special on Esther Williams to kick the evenings festivities off, and before balls dropped. Happy New Year Gin Blossom!!!f🥗🍸🍸🍸

  3. It's been rainy all day here in sunny California, so this is just what I needed today. Especially with sort of crazed expressions on so many of the dancers' faces.
