Advent Calendar Day 22

Back to this year’s theme today. A miserable 5% sorry, but it is from Argentina.

Advent Calendar Day 21

This should break the boredom which most of you have exhibited recently. Thank you to Keith for these images. A page in our gallery will follow in a day or two with these and a few more labels from the late 19th century.

The post was published at 16.14 on Friday. First solution arrived at 16.37 from John and the second at 17.09 from Geoff. The other three correct solutions arrived on Saturday. Really pleased that Gary in Indiana not only got it correct, but commented how has looked for further such posts all year since he also did it last year. His own suggestion was posted yesterday. The other correct solutions were from Alejandro in Mexico and David who lives in Papua New Guinea. So, one response from a member of the society and four from the rest of the world. About right I guess.

Correct answer was

Velvet Underground, album White Light White Heat and the final track on the album Sister Ray

Not easy listening by any means and nearly 50 years old. Yesterday’s offering is proving more accessible.

Here it is unraveled.

Advent Calendar Day 20

Solution to the first “What song am I listening to” later today, in the meantime, here is this to gaze upon. Unpasteurised and unfiltered, you just can’t get away from them nowadays.

Advent Calendar Day 19

Here is the next set of clues for pieces of music. Not one I have in my collection, but I gave it a listen and decided it was of a sufficiently high standard to appear on this blog. So for those who have not seen it before; artist, album and track please, answers Saturday or Sunday. Please don’t give the answer away, mail it to

Advent Calendar Day 18

Another break from this year’s theme. Hopefully today’s post will get a response from a few knowledgeable people. Pig Brand: not a name that immediately springs to mind when thinking of a snappy name which will boost sales. Comments?

Advent Calendar Day 17

A Winter Warmer today from Canada. Yes it’s a first! I have not come across a bottle containing 473ml before, such an obvious size.

Advent Calendar Day 16

Disappointing return on the “What song is playing in my car?” blog. Only three answers in so far and all correct. But Gary in Indiana not only sent in an answer, but also sent in his own clues. Brilliant and thank you. You will get that on Wednesday. In the meantime, here is the latest in the Strong Beers from around the World theme.

Advent Calendar Day 15

You will need to undertake a little research to find out where this Double Bock fits in to this year’s theme. And what is a Double Bock anyway?
