Motels Monday

Remember the band the Motels? They were big in the 80s.

These three songs got a lot of airplay on the radio and MTV and they’re always good to listen to.

I love the music that my mind shuffles through when I sleep.

It has nothing to do with what is going on in my life. They are good songs, period.

Maritime Monday: Day of the Seafarer

Today marks the Day of the Seafarer, begun in 2010 by the International Maritime Organization.

I always hoist a pint to my ocean-bound, merchant mariner friends and acquaintances, wherever they may be. “Bruss” Pringle and “Bulldog” Maris, here’s to you. May your sea-legs stay steady whatever the weather.

Last Week Tonight: Corporate Taxes

In today’s installment of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver talks about how corporations are able to pay less taxes than the average working-class American citizen.

Don’t forget this little fact, speaking of tax season: Churches are tax-exempt. Why, then, do they constantly ask for donations?

Just a thought to mull over.

Friday Fun-Time…My Sweet Tooth! (Re-blogged)

No new “Last Week Tonight,” so I figured I’d re-blog this “Five on Friday” post instead.

It’s a Mercury Retrograde Monday!

Eyrie Of An Aries

Anyone who has REALLY read my blog for any length of time knows that I am a relatively healthy, active woman. I enjoy exercising and eating right, but I also have my own personal pleasures and mild indulgences from time to time! One of my favourite mottoes has always been “Everything in moderation…including moderation!” Thank you to the late, great, estimable, epic, phenomenal Maya Angelou for that quote; I’d been using it since junior high school, but learned that she was the originator of it, only a few years ago. Great Aries minds think alike at times, I’d say!

Anyway, this “Fun Friday Facts” post is about my sweet tooth and five of my favourite sugary treats, followed by three syrupy-sweet songs! Let’s get the ball rolling…

Lindt brand LINDOR truffles: they’re simply divine, in my estimation…I only like the milk chocolate, and one 75-piece bag will last me…

New Moon on Monday Music

The new moon phase rarely occurs on a Monday, from what I’ve observed. Today is one such day. The Sun enters the sign of Capricorn on Thursday, 21 December, which also marks the Winter Solstice here in the Northern hemisphere. The current Mercury retrograde transit will return direct on Friday, so I think some related music is in order.

😎

It Arrived!

The “Brack Flyday Bunduru” of stuff that I ordered was delivered today! Here is what arrived:

– Two Sabrent (TM) USB 3D stereo headset adaptors.

– One Logitech (R) G13 Advanced Gameboard.

– Three 2018 calendars; one for my home office, one in the main hallway, and one in the bedroom. They are always of a picturesque nature and vary from year to year.

– Assorted beauty products for my winter skin-care regimen.

The last thing that I’m waiting for is an order from Tommie Copper, as more exercise / gaming gear is needed! Should be here no later than Friday, 15 December.

The only thing I have on my “wish list” is a NordicTrack Freestride trainer. I need to get rid of my outdated elliptical, which was used when I bought it eight years ago. Time to upgrade!

Monday Mini-Musings: Netiquette (Re-blogged)

Just a small, timely reminder of proper “Netiquette.” Teach these rules to your kids and perhaps they will retain the information into adulthood!

I doubt it, but one can only hope.

😉

Eyrie Of An Aries

Remember when these simple guidelines for internet etiquette, a.k.a. “netiquette,” were generally followed by many? They mainly applied to adults, since kids weren’t as unsupervised in cyberspace as they are now.

People don’t give a crap about these reasonable guidelines anymore, that’s for sure! C’est la vie

Sunday Screen-Shots & Scenery… (Re-blogged)

There was no new ‘Last Week Tonight’ episode from what I see, and I’m busy with an unexpected opportunity which fell into my lap yesterday. In light of that, here’s a re-blog of some lovely in-game scenery!

😎

Eyrie Of An Aries

This first weekend of summer has been perfect! Sunshine and temperatures in the low 80s made for the perfect barbecue: fresh salmon, corn on the cob, broccoli, and water infused with cucumber, strawberries, and mint. That was finished with a nice serving of hand-cranked ice cream! You can’t beat a summertime feast with family and friends. In light of that, enjoy some sunny, serene, in-game scenery! No image descriptions this time around…just sit back and enjoy the view.

Full Moon Monday

The full moon would be a lovely sight to see tonight, if the weather would only cooperate. Still, I can only hope that the clouds and haze today will be gone a fortnight from now, in order for us to get a perfect, crystal-clear viewing of the upcoming Solar Eclipse! An astronomical event such as this is a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence which simply must be seen. I recommend it if you’re fortunate enough to live in, or near, the path of totality. We’re picking up our eclipse-viewers from our optometrist later on today, as getting those from a reputable source is vital.

Creativity burgeons under the full moon and I enjoy listening to music when writing, so here are five songs which have nothing to do with the moon.

Last Week Tonight: “Liberal” Media?

In this edition, John talks about the Sinclair Broadcast group, the most powerful and influential media group in the country. It is not, nor has it ever been, a bastion of “liberal” media. Most networks aren’t, if you really think about it!

😎

On a lighter note, though: here is “liberal” media at its finest, and I abso-fucking-lutely LOVE IT!!! ROFLMAO!
