Weird connections in cyberspace

Yesterday, on the way to Sheerness to see my friend Akasha Savage (see blog links), I caught ‘Feedback’ on Radio 4 and heard tell of a folk band playing in the West-ish country, called Show of Hands. Interesting name for a band, I thought and then promptly did not think about them any more.

Idly surfing (the builders were still here so I couldn’t cook supper) after I’d posted yesterday’s blog I went to Julie Hearn’s website (directed from the lovely Mostly Books site, see ditto). Julie’s books sound fab and I shall certainly be acquiring them asap. But that’s not the weird thing. The weird thing is that on her links page there’s a link to – yes, you’ve guessed it – Show of Hands.

How does that work, can anybody tell me?

...but...the name I've given to one of the characters in my novel: Countess Bathory, is: Gjorgy Thurzo...and since naming this character I have read a book where one of the minor characters was: George Furso!!

I wandered over to visit and see a mention of Show of Hands! They are a great West Country band and we see them play whenever we can,lovely voices and great musicians.
