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!

Give me Wings!!!

The Beatles have some great songs but I am in not their biggest fan. You’ll just have to read about my Sgt Pepper dilemmas to see how that could be so. Wings on the other hand is a big favorite. A band conceived in the year of my birthday and I loved the fact Paul McCartney’s wife, Linda, was in the band. I remember swimming at the pool while listening to Wings, dancing in my bright yellow bathing suit.

Paul is my favorite Beatle… Stella is my favorite McCartney….

Helter Skelter and Something are probably my favorite Beatles Songs.

Imagine is another favorite but that belongs to John Lennon, right? I’m still in shock Lennon’s musical career lead to his assassination. Maybe it was payback for the failed assassinations on Lenin? It seems I liked the Beatles best in their solo careers .

George Harrison makes me think of  Beau when I met him  in the Something video. I always thought Elvis sang this song?  The Beatles were so much cuter with the long hair. Their proper look is a little to tight assed for me  but I  always have some Sgt Pepper in my craw. Give me Wings or give me the Bee Gees singing Beatles songs!

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.
