I wanted to thank all of you for the incredible response to the Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera posts. They were the two most popular pieces yet, on A Husk of Meaning. To cap it off, I wanted to share this video of the two of them together. I’m sure most of you have seen the wonderful film, “Frida” with Selma Hayek. If you haven’t, do so immediately. It’s huge fun for all of us fans of these two. But here is a little treasure of the real Frida and Diego. Enjoy it over the weekend.

        Fellow members, some of you may rembmeer earlier in the season when I wrote an email complaining to the Chief Sports Writer of the Mail on Sunday about him not mentioning the unveiling of Don Revie’s statue whilst, quite rightly, referring to the unveiling of one to Sir Bobby Robson. I ended the email with a no doubt you will have a go at Neil Warnock at some stage in the season type comment. You may also rembmeer his arrogant reply dismissing me and denying The Don completely and stating that Warnock couldn’t be mentioned in the same text as Robson, missing my point completely.Well, lo and behold, there it was this morning as I finally rose from my bed Warnock lives down to all expectations . Apparrently, David Jones was amazed that our manager sent the players to applaud us at the end and according to the columnist he shouldn’t have been!!The one-eyed amoeba in question is a particularly opinionated trash writer called Patrick Collins an historical Leeds-hating know-all journalist who uses his position to attack the players, managers, chairmen and supporters of football clubs he dislikes in an imbalanced judgement. He will never give any praise to those he dislikes as his is the only view that counts and he believes no one else is intelligent enough to have a contra-argument. Fortunately, we still have freedom of speech in this country (just) to stop dictators like him forcing their views.

        Update: I tried the vicks plug-in thing and good old baby vicks rubbed in the chest/back/neck (couldn’t find a triaminic patch). I also took the advice of a coworker and raised the head of Maddie’s crib about an inch and a half. She slept like a dream. Whether it was the remedies or the fact that she was exhausted from the previous bad night, I’m not sure. Nonetheless, thanks everyone for the help.

      • Pour ma part, une grande deception recente a clairement ete un fond de teint Clinique, que j’avais justement achete pour eviter tout probleme de peau, resultat un nuage de minuscules (mais bien presents!) boutons sur le front et les joues, une vraie catastrophe. Clinique c’est termine pour moi! J’ai donc adopte le Sheer Glow de Nars apres avoir lu un de tes articles (merci) et je n’en changerai plus: il est parfait! Quant aux soins, je suis completement accro a REN (les produits sont moins chers ici a Londres), le masque perfecteur de teint est un petite merveille et l’ensemble de la gamme hydratante est un delice pour la peau

    Beautiful. I love it that she wore jewelry in the hospital.

  4. Kathy says:

    Love this little film and adore the music too. A very different insight into their characters – they both seem so gentle in this video.

  5. Terry Jensen says:

    I find Frida and Diego very fascinating!

  6. David, this is wonderful. I so enjoyed both of your posts on Diego and Frida. What a great tribute to them both. Thanks for including this video, a very special window into their lives.
