@Music+ Jungle Boogie is obviously one of Kool and the Gang's better known moments. And here's a version to die for. As Larry says: "Jungle Jazz’ sounds like Kool et al weren’t satisfied with the overall funk quotient of the OG, so they went back into the lab and Frankensteined that shit right up, with a mess of drums and some very tasty flute."

Kool and the Gang – Jungle Jazz

Libby is NOT missing

@els Mussols Another day of walking in the mountains getting more and more dispirited, but we found her. She had fallen into a half-full cisterna (water cistern) a long way up the mountain. She has been up to her neck in cold water for probably 36 hours, so is exhausted and in shock. I had to carry her a good portion of the 1.5km back to the house. We've dried her off, given her some warm milk and a little food and she's now dozing on the sofa next to Ben, wrapped in Ben's thickest winter jumper and a hot-water bottle. Lib's chances are pretty good I'd say.

Sounds scary. Glad you found her!
One of the most stressful couple of days in my life. She's still here being lovely and fluffy four years later.

@Music  Epic mix from from Larry stepping outside his usual boundaries. I will eat my hat if both @Giaco_Jazz  and @Giaco_Rock don't like this.
