Thom, really? I didn't know you had to, lol! She's also one of my faves and I don't care about what people are fussing about. I just love the beat here.

Yeah, Desiderata. Good luck to us all :-)
Peggy said…
I didn't know what all the fuss was about either. Yawn, I still love her and she can still sing!
Thanks Hazel,
Hazel said…
Hi Peggy, maybe because the fuss wasn't directed at people our age, but those under 18 :D
Jewel said…
Nice song!
Much wisdom. :)
Have a good week!
<3 Jewel
Hazel said…
Jewel, much fuss with the wisdom too but well... :-)
Love Cyndi she was my Madonna she was always more real to me. Her perkiness can do a lot for any listener! Thanks so much Hazel have a wonderful MM day!
Hazel said…
Amanda, she is indeed perky, isn't she? I don't get anything else except that I like many of her songs :)
I am Harriet said…
I'm so with you on the iPhone!

Thanks for playing!
Run DMT said…
Just like Thom, I had to Google it to find out what all the hub-bub was behind She Bop. How did I not know that? I grew up with Cyndi Lauper, but I guess I was very naive. Wow. I guess girls really do just want to have fun! Nice. LOL ;-)

Thanks for the MM shout-out! You're a star! :-)

I love Cindi Lauper, but I haven't heard this one in forever. Very cool. Thanks for sharing. I have a musical meme also. Hope you can stop by and maybe sign in my linky to share your song. Rock on! Following you!
The only thing with the iPhone is that once you’ve put your iPod, camera and phone on one thing, if one thing breaks it is all at the shop. :)

Fun choice :D Very upbeat for a Monday (& just what I needed)
Hazel said…
Alrighty, Dolly. Thanks for the invitation.
Hazel said…
That's true, Bud. It is indeed something to consider. Thanks for adding that up.
Hazel said…
ArtSnark, I'm glad you got what you needed :)
Ebie said…
Controversial or not, Cindi L at her age still rocks!
Hazel said…
Oh, she does. Saw her on youtube recently doing a quick interview. She still looks... Cyndi :)

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…
