Some Songs on Sunday

The spring rains are returning and my week-long birthday celebration has commenced. Enjoy these five choice Sunday songs.


Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Frosty Saturday

The weather is wanting to warm up, but the thick frost on the grass and the rooftops shows that old man Winter doesn’t want to give up the ghost just yet. At least we’re not getting slammed with storms like those in the Midwest, the Great Lakes area, and the Northeastern seaboard.

My mood and temperament are as mild as the weather. I’m warm with those who warm up to me, and give the cold shoulder to those who go out of their way to freeze me out. Talking to the face of a glacier is more productive than dealing with those types.

On that note, enjoy this re-packaged post of memes and quotes which were originally published on 25 January of 2017. They’re definitely worth seeing.


International Images for International Women’s Day (Re-blogged)


Eyrie Of An Aries

I decided to post some multi-cultural images in observation of International Women’s Day. Other blogs and articles that I read today are strictly focused on European or Asian women, so I wanted to give those of us who are severely under-represented the spotlight!

Rod Run to the End of the World…2017! (Re-blogged)

Here’s a re-blog of mine from September of last year. I take photos of events I attend and post them here once in a while.

The pictures that I take aren’t of interest to anyone else. Then again, I don’t take pictures for the benefit of others. I take pictures of things that I like and which catch my eye.

Just like anyone and everyone else who photographs things, no?

This event is one which we have attended and participated in for the past three years: the Rod Run to the End of the World. It is an enjoyable event for those of us who love the allure, artwork, and sheer poetry of the classic, American-made automobile. This is the 34th time that it has been held, and the town which hosts it has changed very little in those 34 years.

Other than the vehicles, the only other reason to attend is for the opportunity to taste some of the best barbecue this side of the Rockies! Terrell’s Texas BBQ, out of Portland, Oregon, is slow-cooked to bring out the juicy tenderness of ribs and brisket. Award-winning and succulent, even southern-fried rednecks can’t help but glomp down on a spicy ‘Hot Mama’ and smile! Nomnomnomnomnom…

Here are just a few of the pictures I took today. The sun…

Saturday Songs for “the Quiet Beatle” (Re-blogged)

R.I.P., George. You are missed by many.

George Harrison: 25 February 1943 – 29 November 2001

I wanted to play some Saturday songs in honour of George Harrison, known as “the Quiet Beatle” of “Fab Four” fame. Today marks what would have been his 74th birthday, were it not for his untimely death in 2001 at the age of 58 due to complications from throat and lung cancer. He also survived an attempt on his life in 1999, when a madman broke into his house and proceeded to stab him multiple times. From Wikipedia:

On 30 December 1999, Harrison and his wife were attacked at their home, Friar Park. Michael Abram, a 36-year-old fan, broke in and attacked Harrison with a kitchen knife, puncturing a lung and causing head injuries before Olivia Harrison incapacitated the assailant by striking him repeatedly with a fireplace poker and a lamp.[166][168] Following the attack, Harrison was hospitalised with…

Saturday Saturnalia Reprise

This post was originally published in August of 2015. Here it is again, with a few new things thrown into the mix.


Maha Shivratri

Happy Mardi Gras!

The Eye of the Beholder


Did you think that this was going to be a post about beauty?

Nope. I’ve said my piece on that in the past. It’s a subjective thing.

Debating it is irrelevant. You don’t really care what I find beautiful.

The feeling is mutual.
