I tried and tried last night before midnight to post this blog. My laptop kept freezing up and rebooting. Grrr. Finally took a nap, and now I'm on the desktop. Anyway ... I was watching the news last night, and the musical Spiderman, Embrace the... Read more
Killing Me Softly
Monday, June 13, 2011      10 comments

I love this song, but I still don't quite understand it. Roberta Flack's signature tune from 1971, written by Norman Gimbel and Charles Fox. Strumming my pain with his fingers Singing my life with his words Killing me softly with his... Read more
I Can See Clearly
Monday, June 13, 2011      8 comments

The smoky haze is getting better (might be wishful thinking on my part). I walked the dogs this morning after work, stayed up until almost 1500 (3P), and played on line. I was working on my blog then, and my laptop kept freezing up. Grr. (O... Read more

Take My Breath Away

When wil the smoke haze and ash end? I've been OK, but have many friends here on SP and the real world that are having trouble. The news folks actually recommended NOT exercising animals in it. From the 1986 movie Top Gun, written by Georg... Read more

Yesterday morning, when I walked the pups, the smoky haze was getting thicker - it's from the Wallow Fire out of Arizona. The evening news said the fire has crossed into New Mexico, but is still quite a ways from here. Anyway, as I was looking f... Read more

The smoke haze is worse in Albuquerque (from the Arizona fires) - bringing in lots of people with lung and heart problems. Not to mention the intoxicated patients. I've had 3 pull out their IVs tonight. Sheesh!... Read more

Smoke Gets In Your Eyes
Saturday, June 04, 2011      10 comments

Still a lot of smoke blowing in from Arizona (I hope they're OK). Causing a lot of respiratory problems here - the Emergency Department was packed all day and we're still backed up. Per Wikipedia, this was a show tune written in 1933 by Je... Read more

Good Day Sunshine
Sunday, May 29, 2011      7 comments

Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer in the US. I've already turned the air conditioner on and the heater off, and the afternoon walks are in the 80's. (So we're tending to go earlier or later!) The Beatles, 1966, written mainly b... Read more
