“IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. 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!”
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.
Southern University Marching Band’s Outstanding Cover

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.
I’m an ardent Ricky Martin fan. I’ve followed him since his Menudo days. I’m so proud of him for becoming the exceptional human being he is. Proud to know that he’s a fellow country man!
His talent has been long proven. He continues his musical career undeterred and his hits keep coming. He’s simply awesome .. his features, his anatomy, his smile, his spirit, his personality. But hey … I’m so very partial to him.
Currently he’s on his “OneWorldTour” …. awesome success. Here he teases us with “a little bite on your lips”!
Sono la campana y el fin de semana se deja ver
Vestido, de traje, lujuria salvaje bajo mi piel.
Si dios, puso la manzana fue para morder.
Ay dios, pequemo’ abrazaditos hasta el amanecer.
Llego la fiesta, pa’ tu boquita
Toda la noche, todito el dia.
Vamo’ a bañarnos en la orillita
Que la marea esta picadita-ita-ita.
