Unfolding The Rosebud

My sister Deena is a new teacher at a little Christian school. Last year was a trying year as she took on varied high school level subjects. This year is better. She calls my mom to have long talks with her about things going on in her life.

American History: Firsthand Accounts

When teaching children about real history it's good to pull from trusted sources. Writings and journals are a good way to learn real history. My favorite blogsite, Mrs. Happy Housewife, found a good site that tells of firsthand accounts.

If this blog entry were a piece of paper and if I had a pen in hand, I would write out completely my recent work aggravations and then I would take my pen and start ripping and stabbing . . .

Jim Croce

This blog is dedicated to my (favorite, shhhhhhh) brother, Perry.

Ever hear of Jim Croce? He was a popular singer in the '70's who's career was cut short when he died in a plane crash. I found some of his songs in video. I hope you find them interesting and maybe they might even bring back a memory or two. Here's a video on his life:

I'm going in for an MRI today. My left ear has had a ringing in it since the pregnancy of my second son 12 years ago. Nine years ago I went through extensive tests and an MRI to find out why one ear has ringing and the other doesn't. My ENT (ear nose throat) doctor looked at my MRI xray and said simply I had damage to my auditory nerve. That's all. So I considered that conclusive and just learned to live with the ringing and hearing loss.

Layla and Eric

I had to revise this entry because didn't play the ending to Layla.

Eric Clapton is an ordinary looking man. But when he stands before an audience he's a man with a weapon in possession, his guitar.

This Is What I Think

How did my MRI go? Well, I was a little chlostrophobic inside the machine at first. And they had to give me a shot in the arm in the middle of the procedure. But it was mostly okay. It took 30 minutes.

Fleetwood Mac's Go Your Own Way

This video makes me mad! Mick Fleetwood is having too much fun on the drums and then towards the end Lindsey Buckingham just goes crazy on his guitar. He totally gets lost in making his great music. Just ain't fair 'cause no one shoud have that much at work! Hey, but I love to watch them :)

Hey, Hey We're the Monkees

Just so The Monkees don't become extinct, I found some old clips of them. I would like for my children to see something about the old TV shows I liked to watch. What can I say . . except that, they're just a part of our American cheezy psychodelic history. There's even a kool-aid commercial break mixed in.

Cherry Cola Salad

My sister Sharon made a good dessert for our family Christmas party. I kept eating it. My eyes got bigger than my stomach and then I got more than I wanted. But once I began eating another helping I just "made room" and finished it all off. Anyway, I wanted to get the recipe before I forgot about it. It's call Cherry Cola Salad:

This entry is dedicated to my Mom with lots of love

It's all Mom's fault . . . She'd go to garage sales in the '70's when I was a little girl and then she'd pick up old 45 records (they're an inch more around that a CD and black!) and I would play them on our record player.
