All work and no play makes Jack incapable of being able to rhyme. Yet again, Mrs Johns and I are on holiday, so here's a programme about our seeming inability to work for prolonged periods without the need for an extended rest. I'm not entirely convince by the sentiment of Right To Work by Chelsea, but I am convinced by the song. Another favourite this week is the Feelies tune. Worth seeking out the whole record. After all this typing, I need a lie down.
