#MirthMusicMon – Fishin’ for Squirrels?

25 Jul

I heard Ray Stevens’ song Everything is Beautiful on the oldies station the other day and it prompted me to look up what all he had on YouTube.

Glad I did.

Happy Monday!



You’re welcome.:)

#MirthMusicMon – It’s That Rooster!

18 Jul

You know!

The one from the really old Disney cartoon where Robin Hood was a fox. The animal Not just good looking.

Roger Miller, today’s featured singer/songwriter was the voice behind the singing and narrating Rooster in that movie.

(I just took a peek, it’s available on Netflix right now.:) )

Here are a couple of his funny songs:


Here’s Roger with some serious sleep deprivation. lol


I can’t resist:



That’s it for me this week.

#MirthMusicMon – Potty Training Prep

11 Jul

We have the baby toilet seat, the little plastic potty, panties, and lots of towels for accidents. It’s all ready after Kathleen gave several clear signs that she waned to start using the potty. Everything is ready and…now she hates it.


Oh, well, at least we’ll be ready the nanosecond she starts being interested in it again.

In her defense, she’s not even quite a year and a half. But for a week there she would throw a royal fit if she didn’t get to try the potty BEFORE mommy. Every time. It’s a really good thing I come from a long line of women with amazing bladder control. lol


It’s a bit of a giggle, anyway.

(I never understood the aversion to touching a flush lever with your hands, you’re going to wash them after anyway, right? *shrugs*)

You’ve probably had enough of this next song, but it still cracks me up. Especially when I’m not a solid liquid and still melting. lol


Alright, we’re going to go enjoy summer by hunting down the illusive Ham-Burger-Thing. Perhaps with a Shookten Milk with it.😉


That’s it for me today.

My husband is also behind the times with his post this week, and perhaps ReGi will have time for one (but she’s balancing more plates than me, so she’s got a free pass a time or two a month), so check back HERE this evening and there should be another post or two.

Take Care!😀

#MirthMusicMon – Anglophile Confessions

13 Jun

Anglophile means someone who really likes British culture, people, their royalty, etc., and I am one.

Having lived in England for 4 years as a child, it’s not surprising that I love quite a bit of the stuff that is typically pegged as British. Yes, that means cream and sugar in my English breakfast tea, and occasionally having some pretty serious crumpet withdrawals (there are recipes, but I don’t miss them that much, most of the time). I do miss summers that don’t roast you half to death, and mild winters.  I’m also quite intrigued by their royals, past and present.

That’s why, in honor of Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday I’m letting my anglophile side show.

Here are a couple of adorably quirky videos from the YouTube channel Anglophenia:


I’m a little blown away that they have scientists working on the techniques for making the perfect cup of tea, and the optimal dipping biscuit.

I’m more than a little curious about a few of these.

And, it’s a little difficult to think of a band who’s influenced American culture more than The Beatles:



One of these days I may have an as yet unknown rich Uncle leave me his fortune and actually make it back to England for a visit (as well as Scotland and Ireland. Ooh! Gone for a month at least). But for now, I’ll just have to do my traveling via YouTube. lol


That’s it for this weeks Mirth and Music Monday.

Why Your Blog’s About Page Is Completely Wrong by JOEL FRIEDLANDER

3 Jun

I’m going to have to freshen up my About page, and this angle should be applied to my Book page, as well. If you have a blog, or some other platform where you’re trying to get people interested in what it is you do, this might be an interesting read.

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

Blogging is important for authors. Lots of people consider it almost mandatory if you take your publishing career seriously.

And so hordes of writers have started blogs, and some have gone on to great success building robust platforms that allow them to communicate with fans, announce new books or other products or services, and stay in constant communication with readers.

Yes, it’s great when it works. But too often, blogs don’t work. They don’t attract readers, or if they do, readers don’t hang around for long. Even blogs with good content can languish, unread, until the blogger just gives up, probably thinking, “it just didn’t work for me.”

There are lots of reasons that blogs fail. Lack of traffic is the most common, but often the people who come to the blog just never engage. And it’s that engagement that should be our guide when we’re creating basic pages on…

#MirthMusicMon – All Creatures Great and Snail

30 May

It’s been a crazy week, and an ever crazier weekend. The craziness isn’t going to be done for at least a couple more days. Then, I think it would be wise for this mama to send her husband and baby off for a walk and go take a nap. Ugh. One full day at home is going to look so nice after all this. lol

This video kinda, sorta has the feeling of these past few days. With a giggle here and there.


We’ve all seen that mom, right? The statuesque, got it together deer? Yeah. I am so not her. I’m not really either of the snails, either, more of a combo of the two. Most of my day is preventing a small creature (my 16 month daughter) from trying stunts like climbing the shelving unit and spelunking under the bathroom sink.

She certainly keeps me on my toes.😀

#MirthMusicMon – A Little One-Sided

22 May

It’s Monday, so time for Mirth and Music Monday.

Today we have a cautionary tale: What not to find in a partner. lol


It is even a relationship if  one party never acknowledges the others’ existence?

Oh, well, maybe she ends up with the other half of the ‘book-stand’.😀 Hehehe

#MirthMusicMon – You’ll Never Guess The Words

10 May

Better late than never, right?

Here’s what I’ve put together for you this weeks Mirth and Music Monday.


Google translate is good…for some things. Not always the most accurate, though.

Here’s the original of the song:
