Tonights music comes from the Podsafe Music Network. Eoghan Colghan sings Planetary Woman and Move sing us out with Leave Your Problems. Yorkshire Tea came from the wonderful Bettys & Taylors of Harrogate and while you are making a cuppa you should have a mosey on over to Heidi Lorenz art gallery.

Today my daughter came back from school armed with a poem written for her by her teacher, Mrs Evans. It was so lovely, I could not resist posting it here:

Glistening branches reach out to the heavens,

In winter like twisted roots held in the air.

Frost steams the breath of each warm-blooded creature,

Braving cold winds or crouched down in their lair.

All surface speaks silence, a semblance of death.

But if one is patient, and watches, digs deep

Hope, tiny and fragile, invisibly quickening,

Upsurging new life takes its first tender breath.

Mrs Laura Evans
