  1. I'm with you on that one!:023:
  2. Monsieur owns the furniture -- so, yes, he's on everything!
  3. A friend of mine has a younger sister who just graduated from college with a Bachelors Degree in Liberal Arts who had a job in a travel agency making reservations. She was fired because she couldn't grasp the routine. Common sense would tell you to check out the other agents are speaking and doing their work and this a clue to do the same thing. I also feel that the kids that are graduating college walk around as if they are entitled to everything in life. She then was angry because she thought that she would be President and didn't have to work her way up!
  4. Give me a paperback. How does one "cuddle with a Kindel" anyways??
  5. Not too crazy about Candy -- something in the way he sings "turnip greens"...
  6. In New York, we say "tamada" (ta-may-da)

  8. I've got a soft spot for Billy Joel, too...
  9. Actress Rue McClanahan died this morning, reportedly of a stroke, at age 76. McClanahan had a wide and varied career on stage, in film and on television, but she's most widely remembered for playing the vivacious and bodaciously lusty senior Blanche Devereaux in the sitcom The Golden Girls. With just the right blend of sass, sashay and Southern charm, McClanahan made Blanche into an icon of sexuality at a certain age, and endeared fans with her character's unashamed enjoyment of life and its, ahem, pleasures. McClanahan's death leaves Betty White—currently enjoying a Facebook-fueled surge of popularity—as the last surviving Golden Girl after the deaths of Estelle Getty and Bea Arthur. The Golden Girls was a popular and long-lived sitcom in its time, of course, but one of the most striking phenomena of vintage TV today is how popular the show has stayed among TV fans, including those well below retirement age. Part of it, of course, is simply that the show was well-executed and the performances, McClanahan's among them, were consistently sharp and well-timed. But the show also seems to strike a chord, both because of how its characters represented their age and transcended it. On the one hand, it was and is refreshing to see a group of senior women—second-class citizens on much of TV then and now—bickering, living and refusing to be invisible. And on the other hand, there's also something universally appealing about the characters' insistence on owning their lives, their voices and their sexuality. Like Sex and the City's characters later, their appeal was in their power to say whatever, do whatever—and in Blanche's case, do whomever—they wanted. And its hard to imagine the show without the way McClanahan embodied Blanche's life force; it spoke not just to senior ladies but to young women, gay men and, for that matter, fans of strong characters whatever their own gender, sexuality or age. McClanahan's performance transcended her demographic niche, and it will surely outlive her death. RIP. Read more: http://tunedin.blogs.time.com/2010/06/03/rue-mcclanahan-1934-2010/#ixzz0podc6Wh8

  12. "Mojo means "finding the magic in what we do". To have "lost your mojo", refers to a loss of inspiration or creative genius; a loss of that special spark. The word has been around for almost 100 years, one source cites its use to as early as 1926. I think this describes them to a tee!!
  13. When people ask me what kind of music do I listen to, I tell tham that I'm not afraid of music. This means that I am flexible in listening to all genres. Maybe this is the way the band is thinking. They are musicians and music allows you to express emotions in different ways. I would be bored listening to the same thing over and over and I can't wait to get this CD to see how many musicial directions they are going to.
  14. That sounds like it. This being the CD design and the cover is different....
  15. I've seen pictures of you and you're beautiful!
  16. I was just checking my order status at amazon.com and noticed that they have a totally different cover. This one is black instead of red and the design is totally different.....
  17. My sincerest condolences, Sierra. I still remember putting my Tennesee Ernie down when he was 16 years old and it hurts like hell. In fact, I still have his ashes in his little heart-shaped tin..... Rest in Peace, Duke....
  18. I don't eat when I'm stressed....
  19. Ladies and Gents -- here is Monsieur!
  20. Thanks, Mud - forgot the time difference....
  21. Just went to TomPetty.com and so far, no cover art.....
