Friday/ a hungry hippo and a song

I saw an amazing clip on TV today1-16-2015 10-05-41 PM of a hippo chasing a boat with tourists in Zambia.  I found it on the Huffington Post Live’s website, here. The hippo is Africa’s most dangerous animal : more so than lions, leopards and crocodiles.



My other on-line quest was to find the singer of an ’80s song called ‘Everything is Coming Up Roses’.  A brand-new song on iTunes 1-16-2015 11-03-55 PMwith the same name triggered the memory.  Nah, I don’t like this new one, I thought.  But who sang that song that I remember? Can I buy it? Turned out no – the 1987 version sung by ‘Black’ (Colin Vearncombe) is not for sale on iTunes, nor on Amazon Music.  But I did find it on YouTube, as a music video, and I would have to listen to it that way.
