Cccp – American Soviets

One of my favorites! Remember how scared we used to be of the Soviets? Now it’s all about the Arabs. I don’t wholeheartedly trust either but I have have learned a lot from both. I don’t trust a lot of Americans. I do trust that in if a worldly Russian, an suave Arab and a cool American walked into a dance club and this was playing, they’d all dance! They’d just have to DANCE. Ahhhh the snake charmer dance. Another of my favorites!

Since posting this, I had had to add another favorite song!

Chinese New Year with China Coast

It’s almost time for Chinese New Year. February 14th will bring us into the Year of the Tiger. I am Year of the Boar  in the East and in the West I am Aquarian. Lucky for me I recently read that the Tiger is most closely related to Aquarius so I am gonna ride the tiger for all it is worth. The Year of the Ox (my husband’s )  has been filled with a lot of hard work and plenty of success but I am looking forward to running quickly and being fierce and in animal print! The Tiger’s Motto is “I Win!” and of course you love The Eye of the Tiger!!!!

One of the most dynamic signs in the zodiac, Tigers are truly a force of nature. They are by turns dependable, unpredictable, fearless and stout-hearted, tender and loving. For all the world appearing at times to be quiet homebodies, Tigers may just as suddenly change course, and pack up to travel to some far-flung exotic destination.

Groovee Fortune recently designed an Email Postcard for  China Coast in celebration of the new year and I wanted to share it with you. China Coast, Asian Art and Antiques, deals in beautiful objects, textiles and jewerly from all over the world. Really amazing stuff. Below are a few of my favorite pieces.  You can learn about Asian Art, find out about current Asian Art Collections , etc.

Syria was a trip!!!

These are my favorite photos from Damascus, Syria.  We definitely weren’t in Kansas anymore but it was an unbelievable experience a lot like a James Bond Movie.

I saw the Umayyad Mosque which has a shrine wsaid to contain the head of John the Baptist (Yahya), honored as a prophet by Muslims and Christians alike and the tomb of Saladin, which stands in a small garden adjoining the north wall of the mosque.

I didn’t take this photo. Just thought it was really cool.

In 2001 Pope John Paul II visited the mosque, primarily to visit the relics of John the Baptist. It was the first time a pope paid a visit to a mosque.

Here I am under Al-Khaznah (treasury) Dome

Damascus (Arabic: دمشق‎, Dimashq,commonly known as الشام ash-Shām also known as City of Jasmin Arabic: مدينة الياسمين‎) is the capital and largest city of Syria. It is the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world and its current population is estimated at about 1,669,000.

Petra

I’ve had the groovee fortune of going to Petra twice with 2 different groups of people. It was amazing. I found this great video and thought I should show it to you!

On a long walk to the El deir (the Monastery), we had tea with a bunch of Arab guys who lived there. I love that tea and Arabic coffee, too. I want some good Shawarma! Of course, it’s a taco!
