I need you so bad

If you can not see this chirbit, listen to it here So later, while sticking the key in the door, I turned to him and said, “Trouble, that’s my middle name,” which was a line I used sometimes, ‘cause it sounded so clever.  “No, really?” he said.  To which I replied by asking, “What, you think it’s a crime? Like, kissing me, I mean?” And he said, “It’s just... I do not want to start something which can lead nowhere, really.” What could I say to that, except, “There’s no one home. Stay a minute. Is that a crime, too?”  I handed him an old record, something slow from the sixties, which years ago used to bring tears to ma’s eyes, because—in spite of looking so tough—she st...

A Look at Vancouver – the Aquarium

A Look at Vancouver - the Aquarium
“Look, Grandma, the world is upside down,” says the Munchkin as we enter the Vancouver Aquarium.   Or, perhaps it isn’t we decide. Maybe the people in Australia are right and they are on the top of the world. We wander through the exhibits enjoying, in particular the warmth of “The Tropics” on this cold and rainy day. We then take a look at marine life closer to home. All of which is fascinating to us as we’re originally from the prairies. Original link

Stunning images of classic art on the erotic side

A lovely new review for Inspired by Art: A Peek at Bathsheba : 5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive addition to "A Peek at Bathsheba (The David Chronicles Book 2) and the whole series. By B Nelson on February 12, 2018 Format: Kindle Edition | Verified Purchase Stunning images of classic art on the erotic side. Beautifully presented in story fashion. I discovered this book after reading Uvi Poznansky's David Chronicles. It is a lovely companion to that series. However, it sends alone as an illustrated chronicle to that classic story "the most torrid tale of passion ever told: David's forbidden love for Bathsheba, and his attempt to cover up the scandal." I recommend all her books. Five stars. Origin...

St. Valentine’s Day Self-Present

Is there anything sadder than buying ourselves presents on St. Valentine’s Day? Probably not, but what the heck, I’m living a solitary existence in the hills of Astigianistan, I’m just a poor boy, nobody loves me… might as well put down a few bucks and give myself a present. After all, St. Valentine’s Day is the sort of celebration that can really get you depressed, with all your friends that post pictures of their significant others and offer compassionate support to you, usually with the effect of making you feel even more sad and lonely. So I decided to throw myself a party, with chocolate and a good book – and the good book is the paperback edition of Emily Hahn’s No Hurry to Get Home, H...

Release Blitz: More than love you by Shayla Black

    I’m Noah Weston. For a decade, I’ve quarterbacked America’s most iconic football team and plowed my way through women. Now I’m transitioning from star player to retired jock—with a cloud of allegation hanging over my head. So I’m escaping to the private ocean-front paradise I bought for peace and quiet. What I get instead is stubborn, snarky, wild, lights-my-blood-on-fire Harlow Reed. Since she just left a relationship in a hugely viral way, she should be the last woman I’m seen with. On second thought, we can help each other… I need a steady, supportive “girlfriend” for the court of public opinion, not entanglements. Harlow is merely looking for nonstop sweaty sex and screaming orgasms ...

Happy Birthday President Lincoln--Read About My Paranormal Twist on Booth's Insane Plot To Kill Him in A NECESSARY END

In 2006, I decided to combine my love of Lincoln and the paranormal. I began researching A NECESSARY END, my paranormal twist on John Wilkes Booth's insane plot to assassinate President Lincoln. It contains no fictional characters.  Abraham Lincoln has fascinated me since I was eight years old. I don’t know what got me started, but it might’ve been a book which I still have titled The Life of Abraham Lincoln, Volume 1, written in 1895. When I was in 3rdgrade, in the mid-60s (which shows how long I’ve been a Lincoln nut), my teacher asked us to bring a book to school from home, for a show & tell. My mother suggested I bring this Lincoln book, which even in 1966 was in bad shape—yellowed, stif...

Phantom of the Opera Challenge – Day 18

Once again, I’m combining Music Monday with the POTO challenge. Song With the Highest Play Count on iTunes Given my response to the Day 8 question, it will come as no surprise:  “Music of the Night.”  I even have a playlist with several different versions, no small number in languages other than English. Here is Randal Keith’s recording of the song.  Randal is the only actor I know of who has literally played every male lead in ALW’s POTO over the course of time.     Original link

Blog Tour ~ The Line of His People by C.J. Adrien

Available on Amazon UK and Amazon US France, 799 A.D. The Northmen sacked the monastery at dawn, before anyone had awakened. They burned the village and slaughtered all who stood in their path. The relics of Saint Philbert were lost, and the island was abandoned by those who once dwelled there. Years later, the monk Abriel - survivor of the same attack as a young boy - is sent to recover the relics to help restore the reputation and legitimacy of Saint Philbert. What he discovers on his journey changes his life forever. Northmen had colonized the island in the absence of the monks. They hold the key to finding the relics, but they have greater plans for Abriel, plans that will take him to th...

Our vacation plans for 2018 are set

Anyone who follows this blog knows that I am a planner. In fact, one of the trips my family will take this year has been in the works since 2016. As it stands right now, we have three trips out of town as a family. I can’t say they are all vacations as one of these is a work trip for my husband but a vacation for the rest of us. Albuquerque, New Mexico I went to 8th through 12th grade in Albuquerque, NM before going off to college. But I returned every summer during college and even got married there in 1995. Over the years I made a few trips home to see my family. The last one was three days after Sept 11, 2001. (I can remember the date because the day I flew was the first day flights resum...

Character Interview with Helen!

Today we’re talking with Helen from No Life Only Death. Known only as Helen, not Cher, she battles her way through life. It was a bit daunting interviewing a killer who fights aliens. I guess, what else is there to do when you've lost everything. To her, it’s all about survival. A jet fighter and […] Original link

Best Seller Lists

Good morning and welcome to Monday Blogs. Today, we’ll be talking about those elusive best seller lists. We’ve all seen these lists. USA Today, the New York Times. Oh, the famous authors who have graced those pages. Doesn’t it just make you long to have your book and your name featured on them? I mean, everyone certainly wants to be on these coveted lists. We’ll certainly do anything to get on one.

It seemed so simple to get there. All one had to do was research the guidelines to get on one of those lists. ...

Phantom of the Opera Challenge – Day 17

poto challenge
Well, here we are on day 17 of this challenge in honor of POTO’s 30th anniversary on Broadway.  I hope you’re enjoying the posts. Whose part do you follow/sing when multiple people are singing? The answer here is “it depends.”  As I mentioned in a previous post , singing a fugue is difficult.  You need to focus only on your part.  There are several fugues in this show, such as “Don Juan Triumphant” and “Prima Donna.”  Furthermore, there are several duets or ensemble pieces. As an alto, I tend to follow one of the tenor or baritone male singers, such as the managers.  I sometimes follow Madame Giry.  It just depends on the song. Here is one of the ensemble pieces, “Notes,” as performed in the...
