Musical Monday: Diggah Tunnah
Please scroll down for Monday Mayhem

Yesterday the blogosphere was humming Disney. I'm still in the mood for it today. My Lion King - crazy five-year old insists on staring amazed (with mouth agape) at these meerkats and hyenas. I enjoy the animation as well so it ends up as the tune that moves us today.

Monday Mayhem: Foxxfyrre's Things you Shouldn't Say Around [Blank
Please scroll up for Musical Monday

Welcome to Monday Mayhem. Our host today is the ever popular host of Sunday Stealing. The meme chosen today is based on his You Are Paying Him, Aren't You? meme.

Today we got tagged. The WTIT Tape Radio Blog is generally up to the challenge, so we accepted. And we WILL actually tag people for this one. It would not be fair to Frank not to follow this through. Here we go!

Here are The Official Honk 'n' Hollr Rules:

Rules are simply fill in the [blank] in "Foxxfyrre's: Things you shouldn't say around [Blank]" . To make it interesting, when you comment someone, add a phrase using their [blank] topic.

Things you Shouldn't Say Around a Wife with a Philandering Husband

1. There's still hope. Try ancient chinese slimming tea.
2. The confidential policy is that select women are sometimes also welcome to my all men's exclusive clubimage

3. Son to Dad with mom within earshot: "Dad, how much increase on my allowance are you giving me for calling you Uncle around your lady friends?"image

4. Mistress-targeting school on 3rd street. First lesson free.

5. And this you should never ever sing, play or even suggest at a karaoke party when she's around: To all the girls I've loved before

I thought I would dedicate this post to one of my favorite aunts. She was gorgeous, kind, generous. A cool aunt, good mother and long-suffering wife who, in spite of her perrenial marital woes managed to joke that when it's her turn to go she'd want to be buried wearing her electric red lipstick. Above all she was faithful to my philandering uncle til the bittersweet end. Rest in peace, dear Auntie M!

It's a catching tune for sure. Lion King was the last Disney movie I saw on the big screen and one of the few "modern" Disneys I like. Who doesn't like a movie with meerkats ;)

I saw that you had problems seeing one of the MM videos - many are blocked for me, too (Germany). If you can find a proxy server in the US or Canada, you should be able to see them or you use (there are other sites like that, just google with youtubeproxy).

Coopernicus, thanks

Thom, the Dad taught him well. This is an issue in my family that I'm used to already. I just laugh it off now.

Jedidiah, ah... a proxy server. Alrighty I'll try it. Thanks.
Love the "Uncle" joke! ROFL! Great job...

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…
