8 March – Girl in a flounce skirt, lavender without a flowerbed

Two months from now, it’s possible that you’ll be somewhere in south-western Europe. Somewhere where the fish, port and the like flow freely. Will you be there?

To celebrate the Portuguese vibe affecting our favourite TV show, I couldn’t resist picking this song by birthday girl Tonicha (née Antónia de Jesus Montes Tonicha). The contest had never been as far west as it was in 1971, and the western record has only been broken once since. And it’s possible the western record could be broken again this year. Can you name the current holder of the westernmost record?

Tonicha is 72 today.

Feliz aniversário Tonicha!
