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…

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. :)

That's true, Bud. It is indeed something to consider. Thanks for adding that up.

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 :)

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…
