Announcement …. “‘Tis The Season … “

ON A LIGHTER NOTE

I’m going to be away from this spot, “It Is What It Is“, for a few days. I won’t have full access to a PC or laptop.

I still have the capacity to keep an eye on what happens in the blogosphere while I’m away.

I’m not able to just disconnect, particularly with what is going on in our world at this time.

There are so many problems, issues, conflicts, injustices, bigotry, destruction, killing, wars ….. We need to stay informed and educated about “happenings“.

I will leave you today with a message.

As noted above, we won’t find peace until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, as Mr. Sweitzer noted.

‘Tis the season …

We are all in this together. Be kind to on another.

To start the day …. “Heather Rooney: She got Starbuck’s concept”!!

~~December 3, 2015~~ 

REMEMBER WHEN?

Starbucks unveiled its new holiday design – a red cup with the green Starbucks logo – and sparked significant controversy due to its lack of Christmas symbols like reindeer and snowflakes.

Starbucks defended the blank holiday design as welcoming of people’s different stories.

How fickle are we as a society?

How short is our memory?

Is there an element of an attention span deficit?

I wonder.

At least, a young, extremely talented, young lady, HEATHER ROONEY, grasped the idea happily and worked her wonder art.

There’s still hope, I think.

FEELS BETTER WHEN I’M DANCIN’

Summer’s long gone.

Autumn is on the way out.

Thanksgiving and Black Friday are over and done.

The Christmas Spirit is making its way in. You can see it everywhere: houses are light up, stores are decorated, people are shopping. Santa’s orders are being filled out.

This is a catchy tune to get you in the spirit.

Enjoy!

~~Published on Oct 16, 2015~~

Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus and the rest of the beloved “Peanuts” gang are dancing way to the big-screen, with moves like you’ve never been seen before, in state of the art 3D animation.

Snoopy, the world’s most lovable beagle – and flying ace – embarks upon his greatest mission as he takes to the skies to pursue his arch-nemesis The Red Baron, while his best pal, Charlie Brown, begins his own epic quest.

From the imagination of Charles M. Schulz and the creators of the ICE AGE films, THE PEANUTS MOVIE will prove that every underdog has his day.

LIL BUB BRINGS .. CHRISTMAS IS HERE

BUB is a very special one of a kind critter.

More specifically, she is the most amazing cat on the planet.

In July of 2011, she was discovered as the runt of a healthy feral litter in a tool shed in rural Indiana at only a few weeks old. She was taken in as a rescue when it was clear that she would require special care. Since then BUB has become one of the most famous cats on planet.

She is a published author, a talk show host, the star of an award winning documentary, and has helped raise over $200,000 for animals in need.

Shortly after turning one year old, BUB was diagnosed with an exceptionally rare bone condition called osteopetrosis.

AND THE WINNERS ARE ….. 

Bindi Irwin wins Dancing with the Stars with performance dedicated to father

I’m a very happy camper.

I’m so very happy that Bindi and Derek won the mirrored trophy. Their effort, dedication, talent and energy showed throughout Season 21.

Bindi is a a breath of fresh air, poor unabashed joy.

Her love of her family shone through the 11 weeks that the show lasted.

I’m excited for her and Derek.

I will miss waiting for every Monday to watch the “next dance”. Thank you Bindi, thank you Derek.

Unforgettable season.

The 17-year-old daughter of Steve Irwin says show has ‘changed her life’ as she is announced winner of the US reality show with partner Derek Hough. They triumphed in the final of the reality TV show on Tuesday night, November 25, 2015.
Clem Bastow

The pair got a perfect score of 30 for their final dance routine and brought audience members to tears.

“Thank you so much for everything.

I can’t believe I’m here.

Thank you for changing my life,” Irwin said.

Irwin, who like her her father Steve Irwin works as a conservationist and a TV presenter, has been impressing audiences with her dancing flair during the past three months.

Steve Irwin died in 2006 after a stingray stuck its barb into his heart, and his daughter’s final Dancing with the Stars performance on Monday, November 23, 2015,  was dedicated to him.

First she and Hough danced quickstep to Dr. Bones, by Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, and then moved to a freestyle dance to Footprints in the Sand, by Leona Lewis.

In a video intro to the dance, Hough said: “It reminds me of where you’re from and your dad always being there no matter what.”

Irwin said: “I’ve tried to just remember his strength, knowing that Dad is kind of still with me.”

Something to think about …. “Dance to the Music”!!


Dance

~~November 24, 2015~~ 

DANCE TO THE MUSIC

Dance to the music
under the stars at night.
Dance to the music
of all time lullabies.
Dance to the music
of your own beat and rhythm.
Dance to the music
that your own heart has chosen.
