Beyond the reach of any magic

Lumos Maxima! A bored muggle needed sufficient light to pore over the final Harry Potter book not once but twice, thrice or Voldy knows how many times. Yes, we can say the name now . These are lines I remember from The Deathly Hallows for reasons bubbling with toads and whiskers in my cauldron recently: 1. All's fair in love and war and this is a bit of both. - Ron Weasley 2.

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.

Shiny floor

Two entries are integrated in this post: Sinaw nga Salog for the Bisdak Pictures of Life and Shiny Floor for Nostalgia which you have to scroll down for; thanks. There's a brief introduction about Pictures of Life (Hulagway sa Kinabuhi) on my sidebar just above the Bisdak links. An English version of this post is available right below for friends and visitors who do not read Bisaya. This is a bi-lingual exercise for me. S - SINAW NGA SALOG Ga-inilis mig salog sa balay. Giuna ang sala. Pag shopping nako, isa ni sa mga estilo sa tiles nga akong napansin. Sinaw sa?
