Photo Phriday

I just had to share this. Isn’t it gorgeous, especially when you know the photographer – Betty Davidson  – didn’t use any filters or anything. It was taken in the harbor in Duluth, MN just recently.

Thanks Betty!

Old Tune Tuesday

This isn’t a dance tune but I’m a Cat Steven’s fan, so I had to share this classic.

This isn’t much of a video, but I didn’t have much to choose from. I didn’t remember what Cat Stevens looked like. I was kind of young what he was popular. Yeah, that’s it!

Joan Rivers – A Funny Lady

If you haven’t heard, Joan Rivers, at the age of 81 died a couple days ago. Joan may have been a bit crude but she was truthful. This is the piece I heard on public radio yesterday.

She was on the Johnny Carson Show and Johnny was prompting her with a question something like this:

Johnny: Don’t you think men really like intelligent woman?

Joan: No! Are you kidding me? I don’t think a man who has his hand up a woman’s skirt is looking for a library card.

I heard this on the radio and thought others might like it. There are some pretty interesting pictures of David on this slide show. I didn’t know he had that interesting eye thing going.

Felt like a little George Harrison today. In this one he’s playing with Eric Clapton, Phil Collins, and Ringo Star.

Wordsmith– I also review books

Christine Keleny:

A nice review from Kathleen Rowland of “Rose From the Ashes.” Thanks Kathleen!

ROSE FROM THE ASHES by Christine Keleny is an example of premiere World War II fiction. This is the third novel of Keleny’s amazing Rose Series.  Having finished the book, I wish there were more! 


Pregnant and newly widowed, army nurse Rose Krantz returns to her family’s Wisconsin farm. For Rose it’s a place of sanctity where her late husband Malcolm’s funeral takes place but also discrimination. Accompanied home by her best friend, Lilly Mae, who is black, Rose resents a racially charged comment against her. Having been through thick and thin with Lilly Mae (in prior books of the series) Rose struggles with prevailing attitudes of the 1940s.  

The public supports men who suffer battle fatigue while ignoring women who endured hardship under fire, caught diseases, and risked their lives to care for the wounded. Rose’s nightmares and flashbacks have equal impact, but the public’s reaction is shallow. Rose…
