  • They tried to get me to get some, but I always refused. i knew i didn’t want to modify my mother like they had, but they said if i got some shot into my under eye area, it would make me look younger. i still said no.

    The real reason she wanted me to do it, was she would get a discount on her work if she referred other people. When the…[Read more]

  • I had a friend who, in my mind, looked like Freddy that died of AIDS back then and every time I look at Freddy, i remember him, I will confess that I found both men very very attractive. But in addition, I love this song because of the sounds more even than the words.

  • Yes, I am talking about Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. This is one of my favorite songs. Thought I would share it here. Freddy Mercury reminds me of a friend of mine that passed away about 30 years ago, and has a […]

    • This song brings back memories. I had to stop playing it because it made me cry. Not really sad tears…just made me think of my handicapped brother.
      When we were young…we would travel to South Dakota in the summer for family reunions and other things. And we had 2 station wagons and all 9 of us would pack up and drive. And in the Station wagon my brother drove….he would play this tape. I think I knew all the lyrics to their songs because he would rewind and play them again and again.

        • Uh huh…I get the liking the music more so than the lyrics. I am sorry about your friend. Freddy was very vibrant.

          • I found him very attractive, and my friend, at least in my memory, looked a lot like him. 🙂

    • This was the moment when Queen showed to the world that there was something more to popular music than the bog-standard rubbish we had all got used to hearing. The song and methodology in creating it was a seminal wake up call for listeners and musicians alike. The song never shows its age and has a timeless quality that all the classics possess.

      I love the moment in “Wayne’s World” when they’re driving in the car listening to this song and start freaking out during the rock opera sequence.

  • Good luck, sounds like you have made up your mind. I always wanted to go to Maine…because I watched a show that was supposedly set there, but kept letting other things interfere. Finally, after 40 years of dreaming and not doing, I finally just said “I am going to go…I don’t care if I have to put the whole thing on plastic”.

    That’s pretty…[Read more]

  • Ok, you have convinced me. I will start them…later sunday and watch at least part of it. If I love it, I will keep going on. 🙂

  • Thanks…glad you enjoyed…we all need a little “silly” in our lives from time to time.

    Not sure what this is from, but I love the picture and the words.

    It’s a very nice sounding song.

  • About three years ago, I watched a very interesting series on Netflix called “Bloodline”. It was about a dysfunctional family. There was a policeman in the family as well as some other less upstanding siblings. […]

      There have been many wonderful theme tunes/songs for TV Dramas, too many to recount until you hear them again. The one that has always stuck with me and became my all-time favourite is the theme from “Game of Thrones.”

      Simply wonderful composition!

  • Good old Appalachian Mountain music. Kind of reminds me of my mother and the stories that she used to tell about her days “back home”. She wasn’t actually from the area known as Appalachia but close. Her […]

  • Well, actually I live in what amounts to semi-tropics so it is pretty much life as usual here. We have to be careful driving though it, and some are in areas where they find it necessary to alter from their normal parking arrangements by taking their car to higher ground but otherwise, it usually is ok.

  • Today, in late afternoon, early evening, it decided to rain here in New Orleans.  I am sure what the wheather focus was, but I didn’t really expect it to rain.  But suddenly it started, and my thoughts were ” […]

      Over here we call that a flash flood. There you are minding your own business when all of a sudden the expected rainfall turns into a biblical deluge and you look around for the nearest canoe!

      I’ve seen a few in my time and unfortunately, I happened to be outside for most of them.

      We’re not supposed to get tropical style weather in the UK. . .but we do.

        In fact, there are times when the water disappears almost as fast as it comes. Bear in mind though, that part of New Orleans, where i live, is actually below sea level so some interesting things do happen from time to time.

    That show does seem interesting, although I usually don’t like subtitles that much. Be careful, it sounds like there is some bad stuff coming off that fire.

  • I get that…I am the same way. 🙂

  • Maybe when things get normal, although it seems like at times it never will, you will be able to follow that dream and have a hive and your own honey. 🙂

  • No, Stephanie has never been in my house. This was a person I knew back in Tennessee. She has been dead since 2006 before my SO died.
    Only 34, she had abused drugs and mechanial grade silicon to alter her body, and the two destroyed her blood vessels and took her out.
