How is it that my eyeglasses get so dirty just sitting on my face? Seriously, every day there is all sorts of schmutz on them, and lord knows I don't do anything strenuous. I'm constantly cleaning them. It's a life mystery.

Happy New Year

Have a very Happy New Year! Thank you for visiting me, I look forward to seeing you in 2009!

More Books!

One of my resolutions in the New Year, besides trying to get out of the writers block I've had (serious lack of any sort of inspiration), is to read a whole lot more. I will be doing that in one regard, since I'll be taking a technical course at school again, but I've been slacking off in the pleasure reading category as well. I intend to find some really great pleasure reads. I was perusing several lists I garnered from the NPR website, and was excited to find several good prospects. Do you have any great books to recommend?

Hurry Down The Chimney

Best Wishes to you and yours for a wonderful Christmas!

Sad Update: Eartha Kitt passed away this very Christmas from colon cancer. She was an incomparable star of song and screen. Kitt will be remembered for her sultry song stylings, movie and television roles as well as for being plainspoken about causes that she believed in, such as the injustice of the Viet Nam War. May she rest in peace.

Take It to the Bank

Remember others at this time of year that are not as fortunate as we are. Food banks are hurting at this time, especially now that we are in a recession. Monetary gifts, even small ones are much appreciated at food banks since they can purchase 5 times the amount of food that you can. Wow! The other banks that need your help during the holiday season are blood banks. The holiday season typically sees a shortage of supply at blood banks and if you take a little time donate blood or platelets (much needed, ask about it,the process - apheresis, is much like a regular blood donation) you just may save someone's LIFE, how's that for a wonderful holiday feeling? It doesn't cost you a thing, and they give you free snacks too!

Canary Islands Cancion

While perusing the New York Times I read about El Guincho (real name Pablo Diaz-Reixa), and was immediately sure I was going to like the music since he uses elements of Afro-beat, dub, Tropicalia and rock-and-roll. Bingo! This track is off his 2008 album, Alegranza!.

Lovely of these birds to come visit on such a Fall day.

A Glimpse

I'm Not Your Kind

1,2,3,4 no i want more

These photos evoke the feeling that you're looking in on someone else's life, as if you've stepped into a strangers living room and are perusing their scrapbooks and must come up with the narrative to go along with the imagery.
