Music Monday: Song from your birth year
Monday Mayhem follows

As to what songs came out when I came out - I do not have any idea. It was fun recognizing titles as soon as I skimmed a hundred of them on Music Outfitters. 

Images resonate with femmes fatales. Or it's just me. Here's She's a Lady by Tom Jones
And one that flashes Helen of Troy and awakens nostalgia, a fave - If by David Gates

What's the best way to get rich?
Write wacky blogs like why you were dumb to major in Literature or some obscure discipline in the Humanities. Market your creative juices.

Have you ever eaten anything that you once saw alive?
My plan was to make that brown hen a pet. She ended up on our dining table two days later.

What creeps you out the most about clowns?
The never-ending grin which makes their eyes look like they're saying, "I'm going to get you." It's probably just paranoia so don't believe what you just read.

Tell us your best or favorite garage sale or flea market find.
A fairy figurine which will adorn a birthday cake scheduled to be eaten at a later time.

Who should get slapped on the wrist today?
JC for not vanishing into oblivion yet. 

What do you need to accomplish this week?
Get seriously cracking with how to make up for the pay slash that blew my head off last week.

What's you best tip for online shopping?
Pass. I browse and browse but never really purchase anything.

This was pretty random. Can you tell us something really random to end this week's meme with? Shriveled banana, rise from the dead!

More mayhem at Harriet's Monday Mayhem


I seen Mr. Jones on TV not that long ago, and he did this song, and the man has definitely still got talent as big as his ego! LOL

She's A Lady by Tom Jones is one of my favorites by him and If by Bread I absolutely love! In fact, two of Bread's songs were sung at our wedding in 1979. Thanks for visiting!

Tom Jones has been a ladies pick for many years with fabulous voice, and bump & grind. I seen him not that long ago, and he's still at it. Wonderful entertainer. Great choices. Thanks for playing along.

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.

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…

My 'favoritest' are nos. 2 - 13. Got yours?
