Quotes and Venting

Hello good people.  It’s a cloudy, rainy day in my neck of the woods.  Today has been a day of lots of thoughts and I hope you don’t mind me sharing some of them with you.

Don’t you just love when prescription drug companies include in their patient pamphlets for you to tell your doctor if you have certain conditions or allergies, when your doctor has not tested you for those conditions and allergies?

This Week’s Stress Relief

I thought I would post something to give us a break or a balance to the stress that some, if not most of us, are under due to the situations in Washington, D.C.

My plate is pretty full for this week so I don’t plan on writing a blog post, (although it might still happen), and my visits to other blogs will be minimal.   Hopefully, next week will be better.

Ray Of Hope

Ray of Hope is a song written by Eddie Brigati and Felix Cavaliere, two members of the music group known as the Rascals.  The song was released in 1968.   It’s been 50 years, and Felix is still performing.

The message of the Rascals has always been to stand for peace, love, and happiness.  I’ve always said that the Rascals were before their time.  They did not receive much cross-over attention until the release of their song “Groovin'”.   Now, the lyrics they wrote in songs such Ray of Hope ring true again.  For example, in Ray of Hope the lyrics include, “wait my turn ’till I can vote”.  It’s a message that the Parkland High School shooting survivors promote for teens reaching the age to vote to make changes in gun control and to end gun violence.

Running of the Bull Dogs

I don’t watch much commercial television.  When I do, I generally walk away from the television or scroll through the guide to see what is coming on later while the commercials play in the background.  If an advertiser wants to get and keep my attention, put dogs in commercials.

This video is a Geico commercial — the Running of the Bull Dogs.  It’s one of my favorites.  I can’t help but laugh each time I see it.  Hope you enjoy it as well.

I thought this was rather interesting.  I am a resistance soldier all the way, but I do like Darth Vader…

Super Bowl Sunday. I’m Watching Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl

For years now, it’s been my tradition on Super Bowl Sunday to send everyone away so I can watch Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl.  Uh — that’s everyone other than my dog.

I Had To Laugh – Black Jeopardy

At first, I was somewhat offended with the stereotypes, but then Tom Hanks really made me laugh.  I don’t know how Tom Hanks kept a straight face.

 

Encouraging Music To Get You Through The Week

The song, Keep on Pushing, was written by Curtis Mayfield and originally recorded by the R&B group The Impressions.  It was released in 1964.   It is a song about perseverance and finding strength to get through tough times.

This song took on a new meaning for Mayfield after he was paralyzed in 1990 when a light tower fell on him during an outdoor performance in Brooklyn. In a 1997 interview, Mayfield said,   “I think my spirits are maybe even higher,” It’s like I died and woke up to see this wave of love from so many people I knew and people I didn’t know.”

Kirk Whalum brings a jazz version of the song. I hope it encourages those who need a lift-up.

 

 

Talking Dog For Sale

Last week, a friend told me a joke about a talking dog.  I found it on Youtube.   I laughed much longer than the 3 minute video.

Hope you enjoy it.

 

A Dog’s Life

Mid-Week Stress Relief

This was a special week for me.  Saturday, I received a gift of a dozen Georgetown cupcakes from a dear friend who lives in another state.  Sunday came a gift of Godiva dark chocolates.  Monday was a dinner of grilled burgers smothered with onions.  Yesterday was a cake with fresh strawberries in the center.  Thursday, another dear friend is coming from out of town to take me to lunch.

So, I was moaning and complaining that I’ll have to diet after all of this.    My son began teasing me with the following song.

 

Keep On Moving, Don’t Stop

Hope this helps to lift someone up.

Keep on movin’
Don’t stop like the hands of time
Click clock, find your own way to stay
The time will come one day

Why do people
Choose to live their lives this way?

Keep on movin’, don’t stop, no
Keep on movin’

Keep on movin’
Keep on movin’, don’t stop no
Keep on movin’

It’s our time, time today
The right time is here to stay
Stay in my life, my life always
Yellow is the color of sun rays Read the rest of this entry
