There’s Snow Business Like Snow Business

Everybody sing it with me now, and do your best impersonation of a drag-queen, or king, doing an impersonation of Ethel Merman singing, ‘There’s no business like show business’ …

… what’s that you say, you don’t know who Ethel Merman is?

Well, this is Ethel …


I don’t think there’s an entertainer in the world today who could belt out a showtune quite like she could.


I’ve temporarily retired the ‘The Wunder-Lusters’ category, (over there on the right of my blog) because we’re not doing anything remotely wunder-lustery at the moment … which isn’t to say we aren’t having adventures. No, certainly not … and, I’ve started a new category, here and, on The Wunder-Lusters Youtube channel, called ‘The Prince Georgian Chronicles’, which will, as the name implies, chronicle our adventures here in Prince George.

First and foremost, as you’ve probably gathered from the title of this post, I’m going to talk about snow. What a surprise, eh?

And after that, well, who knows where this new adventure will take us …

In response to a request for more ‘snow-on-trees’. Here’s a photo, and an epic wee video …

I’m pretty sure there’s a snow-dragon somewhere in this picture

The last time we saw this beauty she was still in her Autumn robes. Looks like she’s wrapping up her Season with a bang …

  1. Your first video doesn’t work for me, but I get the picture. Within a few seconds of my playing “There’s no business…….” Jackie said “Is that Ethel Merman?”

    She was an original! Just like you. Oh, and the best trick about shovelling snow… Getting someone else to do it.

  4. Don’t think I’d ever heard her sing, so thanks. Wasn’t she associated with swimming and movies with swimming? It says she was only 5’5″ – that’s a lot of firepower!

    Soooooo far no snow here in Ingerlund’s back garden, just periods of blasting winds and monsoon rains. The coolth though has settled in, methinks, for the season. Mr Stove has his sleeves rolled up and his coolie hat cocked at an angle. Keep warm. 🙂

    Ooh, I love the environment! I’ve never been in snow for the holiday season, for one thing, EXCEPT when I was living in NYC for a while.
    Just saw Ethel in It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad world the other day. Ohmygod, she was SO HILARIOUS!!

    Hankie!!!!!!!!!! Oh I loved this. You can take the girl out of Oz but you can never completely rid her of Ozisms. 😀
    Nice to hear your voice, Widds. The accent is a pleasant combination of Australian and Canadian. I like these voiced videos.


  9. Lots of snow-business happening in your neck of the woods!
