Dear Friends
I am writing to gage your interest in a Christmas Dinner with a difference...
There is a lovely Lebanese Restaurant just off High Street Kensington, called 'Lebanese Diner'. The owner wants to put on a special Christmas Dinner Party - a festive celebration with music and delicious food.
The music will be performed by me on voice, with Abdul-Salam Kheir on oud and voice, Meg Hamilton on violin and Elizabeth Nott on percussion.
We are planning to have this party probably on the 20th of December, but the 19th and 22nd are also a possibility.
At this point I am trying to find out if you would be interested to come along, whether you would bring friends and/or family (to have an idea of numbers) and also whether the suggested dates are suitable.
The price would be ca £ 35.00, including music and a three course meal.
I would be very grateful if you could let me know as soon as possible what you think of this idea.
It should really be a great evening - and a wonderful way to finish this year, which has had so many upsets, traumas, but also positive events, in a celebratory and peaceful atmosphere.
With thanks and best wishes

I was given over 400 CDs and 120+ vinyl albums all scratch free!!! It was through family links so I am selling them and the surplus is going to a charity - Starlight - in aid of terminally ill kids whose administrators wrote to me that same week.
Half of the stuff includes Classical and the rest Jazz and a few Flamenco discs.
If any members are interested, I can let them know what is available since I have not listed them only sorted if they contact me by any means listed.
regards Arthur
