Monday 4th December 2006
Another day in paradise. A visit to some friends house at the weekend, they were clients, but have now become good friends. We were celebrating two birthdays and a bbq and a jamming session was the order of the day.
Warm, sunny weather greeted us on the 3rd December in Javea. We started eating some great garlic chicken wings, pork fillets and a home made paella, accompanied by sweet sauce and salad to add that special extra. All prepared and cooked by our hosts.
The lads have all played guitar, on and off over the years, so we decided to have a bash altogether.
Ant warmed up the crowd with some great solo’s playing Bowie, Paul Weller and some Oasis. Ant is excellent on vocals and guitar, Steve on lead a bit rusty and Ian on bass, had to struggle with the keys we were playing in. He managed very well, considering it was his first time that he had played any of the songs before.
The girls wore wigs and danced and sang chorus, guest singer was Diane and a ballet dancing queen entered the room and performed the Dance of the Butterflies. .
Gerry really going for it!
Great food, fun and great company!

If you fancy a inland country drive from Javea to the village of Jalon, take the third turn left off the main street and travel up the mountain roads until you see a large, old property on your left. You have reached the VerdiVent restaurant and you are in for a real hearty luncheon treat.
Verdi Vents Restaurant, Jalon. Telephone 00 34 96597 3413. Once you are seated with jugs of red wine already placed on the table, you are presented with bowls of a potato dish, mixed with chives, lavender and herbs. also large loaves of freshly baked bread. Next two large serving bowls of a creamy white soup, that had us all guessing what the ingredients were, it was delicious and we were told that it was lettuce!
A short break and plates of oil covered tomatoes and mozzarella cheese were placed on the table. Main course was a choice of lamb on the bone with a moscatel sauce or venison in a red wine sauce. Nine of us chose the venison and it was fantastic. The lamb was also excellent. The sound of guitars filled the air and the popular brothers, from the area, sang and played our favourite Spanish melodies.
The whole day was a wonderful experience,a delightful meal and one that we shall remember for the rest of our lives, or at least a until the next time.
