Birmingham German Christmas Market ~ Dec 2010
I went to the Birmingham Christmas Market a few weeks ago, on a random trip to Brum, surprise from some friends 😀 I even got to see the new Harry Potter movie. It was when we had our first snowfalls, oh I thought that was the end of it… (still snowy!) I love German bread, have done since I went to München (Munich) in 1997. So was looking forward to visiting the Christmas market.

Marlene Dietrich ~ Dec 27th 1901 – May 6th 1992 Wiki Article
This has to be the ultimate diva for me, she was an actress and singer I won’t go into her life history as it’s documented very well already. I want to tell you what songs I like and why I like her
My favourite song by Marlene is Wenn Die Beste Freundin (Marlene Dietrich, Oskar Karlweis, Margo Lion) (1928) then a close second is Ich Hab’ Noch Einen Koffer In Berlin (1954) then Ich bin von Kopf bis Fuß auf Liebe eingestellt (1930)
She has a style that no one today can touch, a classy elegance – it’s not the same now perhaps it was managed well by the movie companies the allure of mystery about her (it certainly was for Marlene, her privacy was very important to her)
