Lulu's Kitchen: Luscious Ambrosia Salad.

This combination of canned pineapple and mandarin segments, cherries from a jar, combined with fresh mango and slithered coconut steeped in Malibu liqueur all mixed with crumbled meringues in a creamy sauce might aptly be called food for the Gods!

I had been longing to try making this delicious dessert but had been put off by huge quantities in recipes I had seen and the use of cool whip, a product not available in the UK. After much research and a little tweaking here and there, this is my version.

Naturally Musical: Heed No Nightly Noises.

It is evening in the rainforest and a gentle rain is pattering on big leaves. A soft chorus of crickets and treefrogs give a backdrop to a beautiful solo piano melody. The night creatures are busy but we need not heed them. All is safe.

Naturally Musical: New Beginnings.

Here in this verdant woodland day has just broken. the leaves are dew dappled, everything looks fresh and new. a tumult of birds say hello to the new day and a beautiful melody of flutes, harp and strings gives a hopeful vibe.

Naturally Musical: Starlight, Star Bright.

An evocation of a peaceful summer night. Here beside the water it's business as usual for night creatures while overhead, beautiful, eternal and oblivious, shine a thousand friendly stars.

Naturally Musical: Rain on the Blossoms.

This tranquil piano piece has a gentle sadness to it as well as so much beauty. It made me think of the time when I was in an orchard and a heavy shower of rain fell, drenching the new apple blossoms, filling the air with the wonderful smell of rain and delicate flowers.

Naturally Musical: A Happy Place

I seem to have known this tune composed by Andre Louis forever. It says lots of things to me, sunshine, relaxation, being in a good place. Now I can show you some of the things I think of when I hear this and also that music with nature sounds doesn't have to be all about new age and ambient!

DollChat: Dinnertime for Reborn Baby Brooke.

Little Brooke, being the size of a nine-month-old, is old enough to eat solid babyfood. This I purchased for her, all the way from the US, from a lady who makes fake food for films and broadway shows as well as to sell in her Etsy shop. It looks so incredibly real that it fools the unwary! I have great fun feeding my little live wire as you shall hear.

DollChat: Introducing Reborn toddler Brooke.

I had been waiting eight and a half months. Finally the day arrived. A reborn, hand-made to my specifications, the size of a nine-month-old girl was waiting for her first cuddle. Listen to our first meeting.

DollChat: Feeding Ozzie the Reborn Chimp.

Having a real live chimp around the house wouldn't be anyone's idea of a good time! But, as you can hear, Ozzie, my reborn chimp, can be a right little handful too, although a few grapes or a banana and he's anybody's!
