High upon this love

Music Monday: High upon this love, Dionne Warwick, The Bold and the Beautiful
Monday Mayhem follows

The closest I could get to a TV show is The Bold and the Beautiful. In the early 2000s I tempered vicious gradschool Stats with the entertainment  B&B offered.  Eric Marienthal renders a prominent saxophone feature and Dionne Warwick does the vocals. I love the combination.

Monday Mayhem: Hot Mayhem

1. Were you a fan of Amy Winehouse? Were you surprised about her? No and no

2. What have you always wanted to try doing during a heat wave? Have you done it? What's holding you back? Heatwaves are an almost daily experience where I live. I'm probably too used to being dehumidified to think of exotic ways of dealing with the usual cold edibles, light clothing or freezing AC's.

3. "Judd" from Sunday Stealing is having a party. Are you going? What are you planning to bring with you? Another party... I'll be happy to hear how fun it has been :)

4. Do you think other countries deserve a set of twins (kind of like the "French Twins")? Which country would you designate a twin country? I'm not sure I understand this. I only have Siamese Twins in mind.

5. Would you ever trade your lifestyle for the lifestyle of someone rich and famous? Why or why not? The perk vs the price: nah... my unpublished creativity trove is enough.

6. What's the stupidest thing you heard last week? That somebody camped out my door while I was partying somewhere, tsk tsk tsk....

Hey Girl, following you and love your choice. Dionne Warwick was a favorite of mine all through high-school. Did you know she's Whitney Houston's Aunt? Oh well have a great day, and thanks for playing. Hope to see you next week too! hugsssssssss

I haven't heard this song. Thanks for sharing it!

I actually found you via Run DMT and would love it if you might be able to join in with my weekly music meme called Sunday Song.

Hope to see you soon!

Best wishes,

Soaps would have been a good and different choice, which believe it or not, never entered my realm of thinking yesterday. I'm a Days fan, so I'm unfamiliar with B&B's theme music.

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…
