All these excellent male artists in the world. It's hard to choose a fave from among them. I decided on someone I saw live not long ago. Here's Peter Cetera of Chicago.

1. Are you concerned at all with the possibility that radiation leaks could head your way?
Better ready just in case than wake up sorry.

2. What is the one thing that you will always go cheap on?
Anything I don't want to keep

3. What would you buy that price would have no limit?
Necessities for the kiddo

4. Name a TV show that could be about the stupidest thing ever.
Haven't watched any since 2004

5. What is the strangest thing you have ever eaten?
When I got used to wasabi it wasn't strange anymore

6. If it were really hot out and you were at the beach, would you go in the water even if it was dirty or full of jellyfish? Nope

7. Can you teach old dogs new tricks or is it just not worth the effort?
Why bother

8.What makes comfort foods taste so good?
The illusion of forgetting troubles

9. How do you like your steak cooked?
Usually well-done but if it's choice beef rare is ok

10. Have you ever stepped on something and had it stuck in your foot?
A tack. The pain I could stand for few seconds, the horror was murder.

11. We're looking for viral video theme ideas. What's your best idea for a viral video day?
Something off the insane minds of Jane Austen addicts (like me, ops)

12. What is your twitter handle? Can we follow you?
Forgot it now. The only time I did twitter was when I had to familiarize myself with some FAS (Federation of American Scientists) research bits.

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:
Head over to Just About Anything for more wedding movies.


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…
