It’s Good News Week – Hedgehoppers Anonymous 1965

This song just keeps on keeping on. It always comes to mind when the news is dismal and over the last 2 wks it has been.

  • A devastating explosion in Beirut, Lebanon (stored ammonium nitrate)
  • Finding that here in Newcastle, Australia we have a much bigger store of this stuff in town
  • Virgin Airlines to reduce it workforce by about 3000 employees but retaining regional routes (fingers crossed by those hoping to again up, up and away)
  • China and USA in a Thucydide’s Trap?
  • And our fellow Aussies in Victoria having a very tough time with COVID-19

  1. Too right! Love that song. Is it such a disaster song, however it makes me feel upbeat. Maybe something wrong with my wiring. Didn’t know it was The Hedgehoppers. Who calls themselves that!
