Crows Nest

Good Evening long lost friends,
The prodigal daughter returns.

Danny and I decided to have our date night here at his work viewing a concert of Big Daddy Weave. I arrived with dinner and found Danny saving a seat for me in the crows nest where all the techno geeks sit. I noticed another techno geek in the crows nest. We chatted for a while speaking of marital bliss and ups and downs of the ever troublesome differences of "mars and venus". 10 minutes before Big Daddy Weave goes on stage we have become aware of the fact that we are talking to the drummer of Big Daddy Weave!!!! YIKES!!! How cool for us. So down to earth and I am happy to say they did a splendid job of hosting a wonderful worship/concert here!
THEY ROCK!
JJ good luck with Hannah and your wife with lots of shoes!

Hope you have had a experience of coincidence! It's really cool!
Till I write again, which will be sooner than later,
Peace out...................

Not your normal chick flick.

I spent the better part of this morning watching Elizabethtown. Wonderful film written and directed by Cameron Crowe. I've always enjoyed his stuff. There's something about this film that dealing with the real- life death of Cameron's father that speaks to you. It speaks about grief. How to deal with the death of a loved one. There really is no right way to grieve. I loved how it showed such a range of emotion. If you have ever lost anyone close to you, it is always tragic. There are times you are uncomfortable, times you want to laugh, times you want to get mad, times you just want to empty your soul and be alone. The film explains these emotions and has a fun love story to boot. I highly recommend it to anyone. The soundtrack is typical Crowe:
U2
John Petty
Temptations

Get it, you'll want to own it

Three songs to download from itunes:
Can't Get Next To You
Free Bird
Square One

First Time

After being beaten into submission by my husband, I have started a BLOG. I must say that my blog address was tricky to come by after trying 8 different "potter" lingos I finally ended up with a misspelled attempt. This offers me comfort knowing that there are others who are as addicted to JK Rowling's world as me.

I guess my first blog will be about my newest toy that keeps me company during my failing attempt to loose weight. MY IPOD SHUFFLE.

LOVE IT.
I have it set up so that I know how long I have worked out based on song order. I guess I will share my top 5 songs.

5- Bare Necessities- Bowling For Soup
4- Days Go By- Keith Urban
3- These Boots Are Made For Walkin'- Jessica Simpson
2- Don't Phunk With My Heart- Black Eyed Peas
1- Crazy- Seal

I'll try to post as soon as possible more fun stuff all about me! Okay, maybe not all about me... That would be boring!
