Blogs ARE useful! If I didn’t know this before – I know it now. How do I know this? Back in April of this year – I did this post about my engagement ring irritating the skin underneath it. It was really very bothersome to me and for the longest time (even after we got married) I couldn’t wear it. Well, I could wear it for a few days – until the blister and rash started showing up again – then I’d have to take it off for a week or two until it healed. I could then wear it […]
I read Dan Brown’s “The Da Vinci Code” and thought it was a good book. It had a really good story line – – and some an awesome mystery and thread that made it hard to put down. When I was finished reading his book, I thought… “Hmm.. interesting take.” Kind of like when I saw Oliver Stone’s “JFK” on DVD. “Hmm.. interesting take,” thought I. The whole time understanding, and realizing, that it’s fiction. It’s not an accounting of the true events… because there’s no real historical documentation to back any of it up. It’s just one author’s imagination […]
It’s been just one of those weeks. I hit quite a few road bumps along the way over the past 2-3 weeks and I’m now in the process of lulling myself into believing that things will be smooth sailing for at least the next several weeks. A girl can have her dellusions, can’t she? With the stress of everything that’s gone on (and I haven’t really explained the stress but let’s just say this: 1 16 year old boy getting into teenaged mischief, 1 father giving us a health scare, 1 mother still battling her health issues and facing another […]
It’s a rare night that I call it a night early. Tonight is one of them. Usually, I work until all hours of the night/morning. Except, on occasion – I just feel the need to shut it down, pour a glass of wine and curl up in bed with a good book. Tonight, I’m going to bed with Vince Flynn. Of course, if you ask him – he’ll flat out deny it! I love his books, though – – and have read every single one of them. Except, of course, the current one I”m reading called “Memorial Day” – – […]
So, I’m sitting here working. While doing so, listening to an iTunes Radio Station… RCN 9412 – Classic Rock That Matters. The song that just came on? The Struggle Within ~ Metallica I’m sorry, but WHEN exactly did THAT become classic rock? Arrgh! Update: For those of you who own websites/blogs – – does it freak you out to see that someone, whose IP you do not recognize, is doing a direct search for using your full name as the keywords? Hey Googler – Hi! /eek!
I swear I’m doing the chair boogie today to all sorts of songs I don’t normally listen to. The lastest listing in the past hour: 1.) Carpenters – Please Mr. Postman 2.) Dr. Hook – Sexy Eyes 3.) Blondie – Heart of Glass 4.) Prince – Cream 5.) The Doors – Hello, I love you 6.) The Commodores – Night Shift 7.) Bangels – Walking Down Your Street 8.) Go-Go’s – Our Lips Our Sealed
. . . but I did not shoot the deputy. Amazing the songs that come back into my life with my new XM Radio here in my office. Update Ok . . I had to turn the channel when I started grooving to “Knowing You, Knowing Me” ~ ABBA.
I’m in love with this song. Something about it . . the music . . the guys voice . . the tune. Thought I’d share. (windows media player required). Beauty queen of only eighteen She had some trouble with herself He was always there to help her She always belonged to someone else I drove for miles and miles And wound up at your door I?ve had you so many times but somehow I want more I don?t mind spending everyday Out on your corner in the pouring rain Look for the girl with the broken smile Ask her if […]
For reasons to be explained later, I’m buying this book based on a suggestion from Kimberly. From the flap: Change can be a blessing or a curse, depending on your perspective. The message of Who Moved My Cheese? is that all can come to see it as a blessing, if they understand the nature of cheese and the role it plays in their lives. Who Moved My Cheese? is a parable that takes place in a maze. Four beings live in that maze: Sniff and Scurry are mice–nonanalytical and nonjudgmental, they just want cheese and are willing to do whatever […]
Just finished reading a book from Michael Crichton called “Timeline” – it was a good one. But then, which Crichton book isn’t, really? From the sleeve: In an Arizona desert a man wanders in a daze, speaking words that make no sense. Within 24 hours he is dead, his body switftly cremated by his only known associates. Halfway around the world archaeologists make a shocking discovery at a medieval site. Suddenly they are swept off to the headquarters of a secretive multinational corporation that has developed an astounding technology. Now this group is about to get a chance not to […]
