Monday morning blues?

Back to work then? Probably just as well, a recovery period may be in order after all weekend fun!

Today is very quiet in terms of musical happenings. The only event we have for you is a a Modern Jive Session @ Royal British Legion Club in Taunton.

KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - A former Malaysian snake farm worker may have set a new world record after kissing a poisonous snake 51 times in three minutes, a report said.

Shahimi Abdul Hamid's feat in kissing the 4.6 metre (14 feet) long King Cobra weighing 10 kilograms (22 pounds) 51 times in three minutes and one second was a record waiting to be verified, the Sunday Star newspaper said.

Records showed that Gordon Cates from Florida, the United States kissed 11 cobras without a time limit in September 1999.

Cates had used an iron bar to protect himself while Shahimi used only his bare hands.
Asked why he did such a dangerous act on Saturday, Shahimi said: "Malaysians should know that if one has sufficient knowledge of reptiles, there would be no problem in dealing with them."

It's just bonkers!

Have a snake free day!
