“RAMONA, I HEAR THE MISSION-BELLS ABOVE
RAMONA, THEY’RE RINGING OUT THEIR SONG OF LOVE

RAMONA, WHEN DAY IS DONE YOU’LL HEAR MY CALL
RAMONA, WE’LL MEET BESIDE THE WATERFALL

 
 
Are we bowling without umpires again?

This is far from the truth.

Let’s get into more nitty gritty about blood cholesterol. Cholesterol in your blood is made up of three different types.





 
Loretta Koch, former singing sensation of one of Sri Lanka’s most popular bands of the 1960s, jetted into Melbourne this month to perform at the much-talked about event, ‘Alston Koch’s 50 Years in Showbiz’, at The Grand Receptions, on 9 September.
Loretta, the Jetliner’s answer to ABBA’s Agnetha Faltskog, came out of retirement after 45 years for her “first and last public performing foray”, according to her. After years of declining invitations to perform publicly at reunion concerts both in Sri Lanka and Australia, she teamed up with cousin Alston Koch and international entertainers to show her fans that she still has what it takes. “Alston twisted my arm,” she said. “He convinced me to perform with him and get a crack at reliving the nostalgia and getting that
