Why dancing is Number 42*

Dancers fooling with sheets. Comedy.


Dancing is an instant fix for every conceivable problem from bunions to world peace. Activate the following link and you’ll discover the meaning of life, the universe, and everything. I hope.

I’m attempting to post an old pecha-kucha slideshow that I did for a family event in 2010. Maybe it will persuade you to take up dancing… but be warned, it’s all lies, or perhaps I should say it’s comedy, light relief for dark days.

But can I even show a slide show in my blog? I’ll soon find out. (SECOND TRY: I think the PDF may work… Please tell me if you can actually open it.)

    And a very funny slide show, too. We used to dance a lot. Time and things that don’t work right has interfered with our swing, Fox trot, waltz, rhumba, cha-cha, polka and a couple others. 😂

      A wee bit of freestyle does the trick

    I love the idea that dancing removes bunions. I await the results!

        But you promised!!!!

      2. Rachel McAlpine says:

        My dear, I lied.

        No wonder my bunions haven’t changed. I am losing all faith in New Zealand old women!!!

  4. Gee, Rachel, there IS NO 42!!! 😛
