I grew up with the Beatles, Rolling Stones, the Doors, and Simon and Garfunkel. While I love many […]Read More Song Lyrics Sunday: Spices
Years ago, there used to be a weekly feature called “5 Things.” I don’t remember who hosted it but I really got into it. Every week the blogger would write about five things pertaining to a certain topic. I think it is great that Dr. Tanya is resurrecting it! And what fun for us all […]Read More 5 Things Tuesday: Make Me Smile
Sound is all around us, both delightful and bothersome. For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, Cee continues with her series on the senses. This week it is sense of hearing.

I found so many good songs featuring the precious gems that are the theme of Jim Adams’ Song Lyrics Sunday this week! But I love Joan Baez and this an “oldie but goodie” from her 1975 album entitled Diamonds and Rust. The title song is one she wrote herself, in November 1974, about her relationship […]Read More Song Lyrics Sunday
The ubiquitous classic, Happy Birthday to You, actually has a rather interesting history.* I’ve chosen this song for Jim Adams’ Song Lyrics Sunday with the theme Birthday/Cake/Gift/Party/Surprise first, because I was able to find a fun version of it and second, because it’s the song we’re all singing in our bathrooms as we wash […]Read More Song Lyrics Sunday: Happy Birthday
Jim Adams’ Song Lyric Sunday this week has the theme Touch/Feel – something we don’t get to do much of these days! No one wants to touch anything without cleaning first and we can’t touch other people unless we have 6-ft. long arms! So this theme is something that we currently miss. However, I heard […]Read More Song Lyric Sunday: Touch
Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday this week has the theme Promise/Vow/Oath.

The fact that I have this personal connection to […]Read More Song Lyric Sunday: The Promise of Living
