I'll Play For You

Musical Monday: I'll Play For You by Seals and Crofts
Monday Mayhem follows

To Xmas Dolly, Lorie, Larry and Callie: thanks for putting me on the Spotlight Dance today. I have two left feet but fortunate to have no other pairs of eyes in my apartment, so dance I will!

Don't I just like freebies on Mondays! :) I get to feature old songs. They remind me of times when dinners in Asia were NOT eaten at the computer facing someone on Skype eating breakfast in Central Europe.

Q1. Do you think Donald Trump has a chance at becoming President of the US?
He can then funnel his wealth into education / research useful to humanity. Nice thought to enjoy. 
Q2. What's the best way to pile on the calories?
Don't think. Just eat away.
Q3. What's the best way to burn those calories?
Try the stairs from the ground to say, the ninth floor for a week. No cheating. Don't pass out before you

Seals and Croft I haven't heard them in so long & I thought I heard all of theirs, but I guess not. I love your little video of stumpy. Looks like the poor thing can't use those extra legs though, right? How cute. Thanks for sharing and playing along with us today. Hope to see you next week. Following you. Have a great week.

Congrats on being selected for the spotlight dance. I haven't heard this song in years!

Good Lord. Donald Trump for president?! No way. When his golden pigs fly. That four-legged duck is about as wacky as Donald Trump for president. I guess anything is possible.

Thanks for the MM shout-out! :-)

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…
