"What's going onnnn!!!!" I didn't scream from the top of my lungs though. It was just that my extension plug broke on my low batt lappy. And you know how Mondays could be at work. So glad there's music to kick start this lethargic butt. I hope your Monday is a nice and easy one.

I have heard this song a bunch of times but never knew who sang it and have never seen the vid. Damn she has an amazing voice! Hazel this was an awesome pick!

Amanda, neither did I know who sang this until actually recently
Mimi said…
Great song! This is actually from the Grunge era. You like grunge-type music and you didn't even know it, lol.

Hugs & love,

Statistics don't sound very appetizing if you ask me LOL. I so agree...keep it short and sweet :) Love the song. As a matter of fact so much I bought it :) Thanks for sharing. Have a great day :)
I love the "rabbits retire" response! Enjoy your day...
I am Harriet said…
Hi Hazel.
I think you're right about the short and sweet.
Thanks for playing.
Have a great week!
Hazel said…
No, Thom it's never my fave breakfast. Aha you too love Grunge and didn't know it. We have similar thoughts over at Mimi's lol!

Thanks, Bud. Perhaps I wouldn't mind being a rabbit if I could retire right now :D

Harriet, I look forward to that :)

GOD, I LOVE THIS SONG! Reminds me of my college days and road trips. My sister and I would sing it on the top of our lungs. But is there really any other way to sing it? :-D

Great pick! :-) Thanks for the MM shout out! You rock, girl! :-)
Hazel said…
Denise, probably not :-) I love imagining myself on top of my lungs with this lol!

Weekend Snapshot: The AIDS Temple (Lopburi I)

It is sometimes referred to as the AIDS Museum, I tend to call it AIDS Temple. Descriptively it is a buddhist hospice for AIDS patients, the largest one in Thailand. Three of us, a friend, my son and I paid Wat (temple) Phrabat Nampu in Lopburi a visit last weekend. As it is where people with AIDS go to to die, most of what we saw are not exactly the ones I'm in a hurry to show off. But if you are curious, you may want to click on a post I did days ago. Anyway, on with shots that I don't think will give anyone a coronary:

100 steps to the wat
After the climb this is where you arrive at

"View from the top" - those are bare cornfields visitors pass by on their way to the temple

Side view of the Life Museum which ironically displays mummies

A usual sight around Thai temples

Bone sculptures

The temple bell

Life is beautiful. Most of us would prefer that of course. AIDS is also real.


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…

Honor, Awards and a Game

Tuesday Couch Potatoes: Made of Honor
Awards and a Game/Meme follow. Please scroll down a bit.

My pick for this week's TCP theme (wedding movie) is Made of Honor. I like the humor in it. We've all been to several weddings but how many of us can say I've been to one in which the maid of honor was a he? The scene which particularly cracked me up is when the priest mistook the maid of honor for a gay man =) If you're familiar with some of my likes, you'd know why I also love the Scotland location of the wedding. For more of the synopsis click here; and here's the trailer:

My super duper bloggy friend Thom of Thom's Place for Well Whatever and fellow Mom Tetcha of Pensive Thoughts awarded me this Beautiful Blogger award. I have to list seven things about me so here they are:

1. I love wearing jeans more than skirts.
2. One of my favorite colors is purple.
3. I don't mind spending sunrise…
