Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve looked at songs about clothing and shoes, and now I turn my attention to hair (and to a lesser extent, hats). The simple […]
Last week, I looked at Leaders. Following on from that this week, I’m looking at Losing – as with poor leaders, you get losers, and like last week’s post, this […]
