What if... I thought I fell in love

Monday Mayhem follows

Favorite female vocalists? What a riot! I wish I could have them all here. But here are three of them who sing lyrics that are quite relevant to me these days.

Gloria Estefan --- Here We Are

Dionne Warwick --- I'll Never Love This Way Again

Karen Carpenter --- You

Ahhh... gratification galore!

What if... Charlie Sheen were right about who he is, what he is saying and his "goddesses"?
Then Howard Stern's assessment would be confirmed. Charlie is special.

What if... Potato chips were declared a vegetable?
I'd use a helping beside my steak

What if...All the junk going on in parts of the world ended in peace?
Bad time for the business of war

What if...gas prices hit $5?
The Middle East crisis is dormant, latent, volatile. It goes berserk while we are dreaming of world peace over oolong tea. We shouldn't be surprised at its impact on gas prices

What if...American Idol got canceled?
I never would have known William Hung

What if...the Queen of Alaska was elected president?
A nation has succumbed to her brand of intellectual and leadership fortitude

What if...talking on a cell phone while driving became illegal?
The act of making it illegal is long overdue

What if...Bud and Kathy invited you to a party- would you go?
I would. Jill and the french twins might be around

What found $1000 sitting in the road?
It will find its way to fine haunts

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…
