Wedding Dance

Don't have any liquids around when watching this - or at least try to deflect the spew away from your monitor.

Going To The Chapel

The Season 2 finale of Murphy Brown. Corky's wedding.

Guest stars include Jane Leeves and Frances Bergen (Candice Bergen's mother) along with an appearance by The Temptations. Cast members include Candice Bergen, Pat Corley, Faith Ford, Charles Kimbrough, Joe Regalbuto and Grant Shaud.

You Never CanTell

Music by Chuck Berry - You Never Can Tell (C'est La Vie). The utube page did not have any info on the video.

4 days and counting until the wedding! Baby girl safely arrived at 4:35am, brought in her suitcase (after being smothered with motherly hugs), and rolled into her bed. 12 hours on the road with her mom and dad driving her nuts with alternating calls to her with the ever present parental query - where are you now = payback for all those are we there yets asked when she was a little girl.

Hot and Cranky

I had a stupid lying real estate agent call me at 8:14 this morning - bitch claimed that there is nowhere in the listing that said I work nights - is how I know she is a lying bitch because I've seen the dayam listing and it is right up top of the MLS listing.

She set an appt for 11am... she finally called at 12:30 and said they will be here by 1pm.

They drove in and drove out 5 minutes later. 5 minutes! Sure was not worth getting only 2 hours sleep for - that's for dayam sure.

Just to make the forking day perfect - its bloody hot and so is inside my house - having all the doors and windows open for a showing allows all the cool air inside to escape and be replaced by forking hot. It is now 12 forking degrees warmer inside my house than it was before I had to open all the doors and windows for the forking showing.


Did I mention I was cranky and grumpy?

UPDATE: It is 3:33pm and 107 forking degrees and the hottest part of the afternoon is still to come. Fork.

Hot Fun In The Summertime

Sly & The Family Stone
- Hot Fun In The Summertime.

Ugh! 94 here today and expected to be over 100 tomorrow and Friday. Fork. It's still spring and not even summer yet. Oy!

Having another Open House Sunday afternoon - weather dood said it will be cooling off by then. I sure hope so. It is very obvious on those few days of the year when it hits 100 that the little cottage by the creek in the redwoods does not have A/C.

Sorry for the light posting - had a major computer crash Tuesday night (luckily after the primaries were decided and after I was done at the lake for the night). Am obviously back up and running (thank goodness) but it was very frustrating. I lost all my bookmarks, themes and have programs that my system no longer recognizes that I've been reinstalling. Oy!

Happy Birthday, Mom. Amazing Grace is one of my mother's favorite songs. Here is "Sista" Monica Parker at the 2007 Baia Domizia Blues Festival singing a great version.

For you mom.

Gotta Leave

Back Door Slam were special guests of The Who at the Peel Bay Festival in the Isle of Man May 30, 2007, and wowed the crowd with their original song Gotta Leave. I've featured BDS before doing Red House in Seattle. They are good.

This was going to be my Late Late Nite for Tuesday over at the lake but the primary coverage pre-empted it over there.

A little Beer Run by Todd Snider on a lovely Saturday afternoon. Tis 80 degrees outside, birds are a'chirping, the brazen hussy squirrels are being brazen, and the creek is gurgling.

Wailing Blues

Hat tip to ironranger in the comments at the lake for turning me onto this band.

This musta been one hell of a show: Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Fats Domino with some live Boogie/Jambalaya . Check out the band - I think I see Paul Shaffer in this and Rod Wood on guitar - but then again, my eyes are old.

Bound to get your feet moving music.
