Another month and another change in header pictures. Did you like the little heads of state theme I ran? Well, the theme for July will hopefully be easier.

Now we all know we we're off to sunny Israel next May, it occurred to me that perhaps I should pick songs - where possible - that were performed in that country. So I might concentrate on those if I remember. Today's birthday girl Marleen 'Marlayne' van den Broek was picked to go by the Netherlands. She was clearly a competent enough singer and even led the voting at one point. You can still see her on TV today, more as a presenter than a singer. Perhaps's that one good reason to be Dutch.

Marlayne is 47 today.

Gefeliciteerd, Marlayne!
