A MILLION YEARS AGO

It’s no secret.

I’ve found a new love.

Her music moves me.

Her lyrics touch my heart.

I listen to her new CD over and over and over again. In my car, in my house, through my cell phone. All the songs have something special. Each one stands on its own.

Can’t tell which one is the best but this is one of my many favorites. Enjoy.

Adele Wows With “Million Years Ago” Live Performance On ‘The Today Show’

Singer Adele doesn’t have a single day to rest in the first week of release of her new album “25”.

The British diva is continuing with her promotional tour across different TV shows in America. On November 25th, she attended NBC’s “The Today Show” to offer a live performance of the super emotional guitar-driven ballad “Million Years Ago” from “25”, which by the way, if you haven’t heard, beat the N’SYNC record of most album sales in a single week in just three days. “25” sold 2.4 million copies from November 20th to November 23rd!

Crazy!

Thoughts for today, #298 .… “Citizen of the World”!!


WorldCit

~~December 7, 2015~~ 

CITIZEN OF THE WORLD

In broad usage, the term global citizenship or world citizenship typically defines a person who places their identity with a “global community” above their identity as a citizen of a particular nation or place.

The idea is that one’s identity transcends geography or political borders and that the planetary human community is interdependent and whole; humankind is essentially one. The term has use in education and political philosophy and has enjoyed popular use in social movements such as the “World Citizen” movement and the Mondialisation movement.

I am a citizen of the EARTH
I am here since my birth
Fun and joy – there is no dearth
Enjoyment can expand your girth

Stay anywhere – on an island or firth
You will end up in a state of mirth
Anywhere from Paris to Perth
Living is bliss, worth your worth

I am a citizen of the GLOBE
My house is made of adobe
Travel from Korea to Kobe
There is a place even for a microbe

Dressed up well to the earlobe
Butterflies wear a colorful robe
In her children lived mother Niobe
History is worth a probe

I am a citizen of the UNIVERSE
Not national or international but diverse
On humanity, racism is a curse
In divinity, one should immerse

Tender feelings one should nurse
Our children are our wealth, purse
Never use harsh words or be terse
Being good is better than being worse

I am a citizen of the WORLD
Sans geopolitical boundaries, my spirit unfurled

THERE’S MORE TO CHRISTMAS

There’s more, much more to Christmas
Than candle-light and cheer;
It’s the spirit of sweet friendship
That brightens all the year;
It’s thoughtfulness and kindness,
It’s hope reborn again,
For peace, for understanding
And for goodwill to men!

For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

IOTD …. Image of the day, #401 …. “One of Santa’s Reindeer: Which One?“


ReindNice

~~December 6, 2015~~ 

HAVE YOU BEEN NAUGHT Y OR NICE?

I’M CHECKING TWICE

Santa Claus’s reindeer form an imaginary team of flying reindeer traditionally held to pull the sleigh of Santa Claus and help him deliver Christmas gifts.

They are:

Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen.

I’m one of them. Which one do you think I am?

RedLineB

The 1823 poem by Clement C. MooreA Visit from St. Nicholas” (also known as “The Night Before Christmas” or “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas“) is largely credited for the contemporary Christmas lore that includes the eight flying reindeer and their names.

The relevant segment of the poem reads:

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
but a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny rein-deer,
with a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.

More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and call’d them by name:
“Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer, and Vixen!
“On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Dunder and Blixem!

“To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
“Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!”

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky;

So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,

To start the day …. “Adele’s Hello: Southern University Marching Band & Dancing Dolls”!!

OUTSTANDING COVER

Adele’s “Hello”

Before going into the actual post, I must confess that I have totally fallen in love with Adele’s new musical project.

I have been listening to her new CD “25” and must say that I’m totally taken by it.

I know I’m not the only one because everything seems to be Adele nowadays. She was on a visit to New York City and hit all the major talk and late night shows. She appeared on Jimmy Fallon and was hilarious.

She also filmed a TV special for NBS which will air December 14 at 10 PM. One show that I will surely record and watch at my leisure.

Ellen DeGeneres made a parody of her “Hello” which was quite entertaining. Heather Rooney, an incredible illustrator, painted a colored pencil picture of Adele.

I found this video, a rendition of Adele’s “Hello” by the Southern University Marching Band and the Dancing Dolls.

Amazing! Hope you enjoy!

Southern University Marching Band’s Outstanding Cover

By COLLEEN ANNEK

December 3, 2015

Southern University, “of Baton Rouge, not New Orleans: this distinction is incredibly important” as noted by USA Today, takes on Grambling State in the Bayou Classic every year, this year having been the 42nd face-off between the teams, according to the Bayou Classic’s website.

Southern University competed in the Bayou Classic Battle of the Bands on November 27, 2015, and they came to impress. With a stacked horns section, the band covered Adele’s chart-topping single ‘Hello’ with unparalleled power as the Dancing Dolls accompanied the band from the field.

Record-breaking ‘Hello,’ which is currently one of the most popular songs in the country (it has been at the top of Billboard’s Hot 100 list for five weeks now) was the perfect card for Southern University’s marching band to play.

While Adele’s power-ballad might not be the first thing you think of when considering marching band music, the orchestration of the original track leaves plenty of room for the song to be adapted to a full marching band arrangement. The resulting harmonies are out of this world — just make sure you don’t have the volume turned up too high, these horn players mean serious business.

BabCongress

~~December 3, 2015~~ 

A GROUP OF BABOONS

The United States Congress is the bicameral legislature of the federal government of the United States consisting of two houses:

the Senate and the House of Representatives.

The Congress meets in the Capitol in Washington, D.C. Both senators and representatives are chosen through direct election, though vacancies in the Senate may be filled by a gubernatorial appointment.

Members are usually affiliated to the Republican Party or to the Democratic Party, and only rarely to a third-party or as independents.

FEELING THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT

Pocoyo (Pocoyó in Spanish) is a Spanish pre-school animated television series created by Guillermo García Carsí, Luis Gallego and David Cantolla, and is a co-production between Spanish producer Zinkia Entertainment, Cosgrove-Hall Films and Granada International.

Two series have been produced, each consisting of 52 seven-minute episodes. English actor and comedian Stephen Fry narrates the English-language version and José María del Río narrates the Castilian Spanish version of the first two seasons, while Stephen Hughes narrates the third season, called Let’s Go Pocoyo.

Set in a 3D space, with a plain white background and usually no backdrops, it is about Pocoyo, a 4-year-old boy, interacting with his friends Pato (a duck), Elly (an elephant) and Loula (a dog).
