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!

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.


Notes from the Universe


I spend a lot of time working online, adding text to web pages, sending emails, sending emails, facebook, facebook, twitter, boing boing, send email, add text to print ad, add text to web page, add text to sign and menu, facebook and so on and so on, send email…and so on. Get my point? My eye balls can only handle so much text in a day, my brain even less because a lot of the time I am treating words like graphics and not actually reading them. My point, I am super selective about extracurricular reading outside of  the required reading and word handling. I like the pretty pictures.

That being said, each night, I wait  like a kid for the ice cream truck to receive the text-only email from the Universe. What started in 1998 as an email sent out weekly to 38 addresses has since blossomed into today’s daily Notes from the Universe, sent to over 300,000 subscribers in 189 countries! These Notes are brief passages written by “The Universe designed to remind you that you have, indeed, been given dominion over all things.


As queen of the night owls, I am almost always awake when the Notes come into the mail box around 3 am.  A nice little thought from the universe to send me off to dream land. It’s not preachy and often involves space, time, mankind, dreams, love, goals,  family, the universe, etc. TUT believes every life is meaningful,and dreams do come true. They also believe “thoughts become things” and imagination is the gift that can bring love, health, abundance, and happiness into our lives. The emails make me feel good and I believe I can control my life with my mind. Mind over matter, baby.

I especially like today’s quote …

There’s never been a dream bigger than its dreamer.
– The Universe

If you’d like a little inspiration with your coffee or 4 am snack,  I advise  you to sign up for Notes from the Universe and go check out the TUT Adventure Club for all kinds of good stuff. The Universe has done so much for me, I wanted to give a little back.

Thanks Miss Missy for sending this my way!

Just Dance…

I like it when people appear to be happy and living life to the fullest! Nothing tells your friends you love them like dancing in a church with your heels on! Start the reception early!

I love the Sound of Music! I don’t know if I’ve ever heard the dance mix. YES!


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!
