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 my unpublished creativity trove is enough.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....

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.

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…
