-- Images that stick in my mind...
Kate in rain with umbrella and raincoat in the The Big Sky video.
-- Phrases that stick in my mind...
"The night doesn't like it" from Night of the Swallow.
(How *does* she do that? Is that all her voice or was that electronically touched up? )
"...a great big hug" from All We Ever Look For. (Volunteers ?)
"I am the convierge chez moi honey" from Get Out Of My House. (What does this mean? I like to know what I have stuck in there.)
Don't drive too slowly.

Subject: KT and Commodore
Many MANY years ago when I first became interested in computers I went out and bought a Commodore VIC-20 computer, this guy of course had no disk drive but instead one of those tape recorders that you would pop a cassette in and wait 20 min for the program to load. One of the very first cassette I purchaced was program where you could type someones name and the computer would randomly insert the name into randomly selected sentences (well it was a big deal at the time;-). This program had some demo files so I ran them and it looked something like this:
1. The queen has very small feet.
2. The queen likes her tea.
3. Kate Bush is a singer from England.
4. Kate Bush is a very mysterious person!
At this point in my life I thought for sure that there were only about 3 KaTe fans in the US, it just cracked me up to see her name on the computer screen. Turns out the program was written in the UK.

Subject: A pointless little story
Um, I have noticed that occasionally people will share some little story in which Kate's music made an impact on their lives, so I will share a recent one.
Two nights ago, I ended up being left by two friends (who happened to be my ride home) at a bar. They left me in the company of someone who, shall we say, does not respect women very much, and apparently has never heard the word "no." Anyway, I ended up basically hiding from this guy and taking a cab home, and my driver was this young college guy. I was in the backseat, pretty upset, when he asked if I minded if he played a music. I said no, and he popped in a tape of Hounds of Love. So, I rode home listening to Kate sing "Running Up that Hill." I have heard it countless times before, but I felt like I was hearing it for the first time. And it just goes to show you: she may not tour, but when you need her, she's there.

Subject: KT Recipe!
This might be old news, but I found the recipes for KT's favourite meal in Delia Smith's book. As we all know Kate's a vegetarian, and apparently her sister-in-law Judith created these recipes especially for her. So now we can all cook KT Special for dinner....
>>>>Sauteed Mixed Vegetables (serves four):-
Soften 8oz onions in a heavy pan for two minutes, then add 6oz of chopped carrots for another two mins, then add 8oz mushrooms, 6oz green peppers chopped and 12oz ripe tomatos quartered. Then add 2.5 tablespoons of sunflower seed oil and some salt and freshly ground pepper, turn the heat down low, put a lid on and let the vegetables steam in their own heat for 20-25 minutes. You can also add some curry spices or chilli at this point if you're feeling experimental....
>>>> Cucumber and Yoghurt Sauce:-
Combine in a bowl 4 inches-worth of cucumber cut into strips and then thinly sliced (ie, as small as possible), 10oz of natural yoghurt, the juice of half a lemon, 1 tablespoon of snipped chives and salt to taste.
>>>>Toasted Sesame and Sunflower Seeds:-
Take 2oz sunflower seeds and 2oz sesame seeds and toss them in 1 dessertspoon of soy sauce. Then spread out evenly on the bottom of a shallow heatproof dish and grill for 4 mins, shaking dish occasionally.
So.... cook some rice to serve with the vegetables, pour over the cucumber and yoghurt sauce and sprinkle with the toasted seeds. Yummy! Let me know how it works out if you try it....
