    Hi CC,

    What a beautiful song! I woke up fairly earlier this morning and listening to the song about Brandy was a lovely way to start the day.

    The Fisherman's Friends are a real singing group who live in Port Isaac - a Fishing Village in Cornwall. They are very good friends who went to school together and some of them are professional fishermen.

    A movie was released, based on their true story and how they got a deal with a major record company:-
    Movie trailer:-

    Video clip featuring the real Fisherman's Friends:-

    The most popular fish to have battered (and usually eaten with chips) is cod but haddock is also very popular over here as well.

    I've heard of the other 2 fish varieties you mention but never tried them. Salmon, plaice and lemon sole are much more common varieties of fish over here. We do have calamari, you mentioned, as well.

    I am going to Google the group who sang Brandy, to see if there are any other songs by them on u-tube I can listen to.

    Very best wishes to you and your family.

    Love Kayleigh x

    Hi Kayleigh

    That's an old song, I think from the 70's, you never heard it before?

    I don't remember seeing a Fisherman Friend movie, maybe didn't play here ? or maybe it did but I just don't remember it...

    I thought the group were real seamen, they look it. Men who spend a lot of time out on the ocean always have the manly look about them, I guess because they brave the elements out on the sea.

    Our commercial fishermen are considered the #1 most dangerous job in the country, and I can understand why,

    I enjoyed the trailer you sent of the film, the second one couldn't play in US

    Hi CC and all,

    Yippee - The Fisherman's Friends have got their own website!
    (suddenly, I have become a fan of Cornish sea-shanty singing fishermen!).

    Sorry the link to the second video clip didn't work for you CC - its also on their website - the link to 'Meet the boys' (the real thing, rather than the actors in the movie!) is listed under 'Other Fishy Videos' near the end of the following webpage:-
    http://https://thefishermansfriends.com/videos

    I hadn't heard the song about 'Brandy' before - but I was very young in the 1970's and my memories of the music I enjoyed listening to (and dancing to!!), from that era, are mainly of a famous Swedish group.

    A quick trip down memory lane (no prizes for guessing which is my favourite song! - and it happens to be listed as number 1 out of their top 25) ...... time to get your flares and dancing boots on, everyone! .....

    Love and 'Huggy Bear' hugs to everyone! (yes - I have memories of the 1970's TV show 'Starsky and Hutch' too! LOL).

    Good evening Dina,

    As you have had a busy day, I thought you might like some restful music to listen to, and as it is Autumn ....
    Nat King Cole:-

    All you need now, is one of those lovely Doctors to give you an aromatherapy massage.

    I'm sure they wouldn't mind, as to them you are are their perfect patient - who is as cute as 'bingo number 42'!

    .... and I think they should be on a massage rota, as their leaving gift to you, before you go home!

    Love and hugs,
    Kayleigh x

    What an interesting idea, Kayleigh! Perhaps you could email the consultant to request it on my behalf.

    I like the song, Autumn Leaves, but I'm afraid Acker Bilk brings back unhappy memories so perhaps a sung version? Nat King Cole sang it beautifully.

    Trying to keep positive, but not always managing.

    Hi Dina,

    An email is winging it's way to the Consultant as we speak! LOL

    ... also, the wonderful Nat King Cole has entered the building and has taken his place on the stage ready to sing for you (ie in my post above) - and he doesn't mind singing a different song, if you like - any song requests are always very welcome!

    Love and hugs,
    Kayleigh x

    P.S If you like listening to classical music sometimes, I hope you will enjoy 'Autumn in New England' (by one of my favourite Composers, Vivaldi):-

    Hi Dina,

    After singing for you yesterday, Nat has said that HE would L-O-V-E to sing to YOU again, if you don't mind..... (he said that it's quite a cute video-clip too! ..."but, of course, not as cute as you are, Dina!!", Nat hastily added!!) ......

    http://https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=F_kB-yg-By8

    I hope you have had a more restful day today.

    Love Kayleigh x
