Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday the 20th day of February, 2014.

Last night I watched the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles being on the Ed Sullivan Show back on February 9th, 1964.


Brought back lots of memories but not for me seeing the show as I was seven.

I have always loved their music …..

It evokes every feeling and memory one could imagine.

I have a few favourites and was pleased when those songs were played.

They had some amazing musicians playing in their honour.

Some of my favourite performances were by Joe Walsh – the times on his guitar and then when he sang ….. I had forgotten how great his voice was …..

Everyone turned out to celebrate.

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson had front row seats.

Yoko Ono enjoyed the music and even got up to dance …. so cute.

There are so many things that I could write about.

There was a little blonde girl in the audience (belongs to David G) who was rocking out to the Beatles.

I guess her Dad keeps the Beatles alive in their music repertoire.

Well time to get downstairs and finish getting ready for work.

I hope that you were able to watch this show.

It was the best night of music ever.

The last song played was “Hey Jude” and I picked up Mr. Alvin and we danced.

Well rather I danced and held him.

He was not sure what was going on …. although I have danced with him previously.

Have a great day.

Thank you for reading …..

Special Hello to: Beatles Fans

Thought for the day….

Welcome to Wednesday, January 16th, 2013 ……

Wow, I didn’t think that I would be saying this in the middle of January ….

But it is raining out at 6:30 in the morning ….. it has been melting all night.

Last night I went out front to check out the large pool of water collecting on the front sidewalk.

I could not believe how much it had melted.

I went to the back and got my trusty ice “pick” …. “shovel” …. “hoe” type of tool and proceeded to clear a pathway to the drain.

Oh my gosh, it was crazy how heavy and wet the snow was …. that much had melted.

It was like a spring day ….. anyway one of the neighbours from across the street had tried to park in her garage and with her car being low she got stuck … got out and then decided to park out front.

When she was turning the corner to park …. she got stuck in the water ….. snow ….. such a mix…..

Anyway I helped along with another neighbour to get her out …. she’s from Calgary and said this is just like Calgary weather except we have more snow.

It is almost unbelievable to have that happening in the middle of January.

Well time to go as I am running late…… I hope that all is well with you.

Keep that smile on your face and that “song” in your heart ….. I have two songs playing in my head/heart …. “Let It Be”, the version by Terry MacDermott and “PayPhone” by Maroon Five.

Have a great day …. perhaps it will be melting all day and tomorrow and ……

Special Hello to: ¬†all my family ……


Always, Carol and Alvin
