Wait for it…. Wait for it…..


My birthday was last month and a special gift from my daughter had been ordered. Well, it finally arrived in the mail.

Drumroll please……….  Two tickets for the Alton Brown Traveling Tour! Definitely worth the wait! :D

For those of you who do not know Alton Brown (and also for those who do), I give you the following video (with the addition of another fav of mine, Craig Ferguson!)

Everyone should read this. If it applies to you, try to take it in and know it for truth. I have walked these shoes, been freed and, even with illness, am happier than I have ever been. I have found myself and love the person I am. My gift to you is the gift of reblogging “Jamie’s” gift.

A man came across a folded piece of paper while he was at San Francisco airport that said ‘read me‘ on the front.  How could anyone possibly resist that invitation?  He knew he just had to look.  So, he did.

And what he discovered inside was surprising and wonderful…

note from a stranger

“I recently left an emotionally abusive relationship After months of insults I wont repeat, false accusations, lies, delusions, broken mirrors, nightly battles…. I left. I know that I was being poisoned by each day that I stayed. So with a heavy heart, I left my lover of three years, knowing that I had already put it off too long. At first he begged, then he cursed, but eventually he packed his bags and faded out of my life like a bad dream.

For the first few weeks, my…

Sunday Silliness


I will admit that I am not up on most of what goes on in “Viral World”. This morning, while responding to a question submitted by a fellow ME/CFS sufferer, I decided to visit her facebook page. The first thing I looked at was:

Well, anything with cats gets my interest, but I was curious about where the music came from. After some research, I found out about Eduard Khil, known as the Trololo Man. Here is the original video:

What I also found was a plethora of other takes on his unique styling. All I found vastly amusing. Some I have included below.

This next one is a tribute to the singer, as he passed away in 2012. I am sure he is smiling still at the happiness his music has inspired. I guess you can say this little blog is my tribute to Mr. Khil, who certainly made me smile, and even laugh! :D

Trololo even gave “Lord of the Rings” a chuckle factor:

And if you do not watch this “Harry Potter” Trololo tribute, you are doing yourself a disservice (go for it and pay close attention to the facial expressions in this cut, as Voldemort sings.)




A very cute poem written by Realityorbust. I think all of us has had a time when we would rather take a drive somewhere on a beautiful day than mow the lawn.

My backyard’s truly scandalous
With weeds higher than my head.
My reasons – although numerous
Are excuses born and bred.

But into this yard most hideous
Come birds of every kind.
They’re obviously oblivious-
My weeds they do not mind.

A flock of sparrows frivolous
Upon my weed-seeds dine.
This strikes me as hilarious
That they find my garden fine.

And so my mood’s gregarious
As I while away the time.
Writing of my garden atroci-ous
Playing about with rhyme.
