"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

One Cool Dude

And seems to be a Very Nice Man.

On the 6th October, Johnny Depp made a surprise visit to a London school after receiving a letter from student Bea Delap.



           "Captain Jack Sparrow,
              At Meridian on old Woolrich Road we
              a[re] all a bunch of budding young pirates.
           Normally we're a right handful but we're having trouble mutinying against
             the teachers! We'd love it if you
              could come and help.
                             Beatrix Delap
                            a budding pirate
            PS We have a plentiful supply of rum!"
