"A Day in the Life" - Beatles, 1967
Happy Christmas Eve. everybody!
I know there are many, many people who are suffering difficult times as we approach Christmas. Among them are some of the good people of Blackburn, in Lancashire (England), who have been without natural gas for several days now after a gas explosion in that area on Monday. Something like 18,000 homes were affected by the event.
Now the good news is that gas supplies to some of the affected homes have been reconnected. In fact, according to a report on BBC Radio 5 Live this morning, about 4000 homes now have gas again.
So that takes me to the title song of this post. You can imagine what my little brain began "soundtracking" in my head, as I listened to this morning's news...
"...4000 homes in Blackburn, Lancashire...."
Of course, the homes were rather small. But they had to count them all.
On that note, I'll wish all of you a merry little Christmas. I'll be posting again, probably, on Boxing Day!
