Karaoke divides humanity into two groups: those who don't want to sing and shouldn't be compelled, and those who do and shouldn't be allowed."- Dennis Vickers-Passing through Paradise. Here at The Grange we actually have a third group to add "those with hidden talent and not yet discovered". Today was a spectacular occasion as the residents joined in a mellow karaoke afternoon sipping on amazing refreshments in our dining lounge.
