Tomorrow is Mary’s birthday, so everyone wish her a happy one!
We’re almost 2/3 of the way through April, and better than halfway through the alphabet on the A to Z Challenge. I’ve found some great blogs, and I hope you have, too. As always, it’s the highlight of my blogging year. I’ve done plenty of other blogging as well, and I hope you don’t feel inundated as a result. Here’s a recap of what happened here this week.
- (Song Lyric) Sunday: Shirley Bassey, “Diamonds are Forever”
- Monday: Donald Fagen, “Ruby Baby”
- Tuesday: The Beatles, “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds”
- Wednesday: Seals & Crofts, “Diamond Girl”
- Thursday: Howard Jones, “Pearl In The Shell”
- Friday: Rini, “Emerald”
- Saturday: Gary Lewis & The Playboys, “This Diamond Ring”
- Monday: Rekey
- Tuesday: Relatives
- Wednesday: Remote
- Thursday: Renovate
- Friday: Reorganize
- Saturday: Representative
In honor of April Fool’s Day, we chose songs with fool in the title. One of mine didn’t have it in the title, but in the lyrics.
Topics were how we relieved stress, what we wanted to take with us into the afterlife, the opposite of “koala,” the creepiest tech, and how we’re finding our smile.
This week’s encore featured Huey Lewis & The News in a post written in August 2014.
This week’s one-liner dealt with things we do to break the monotony caused by being stuck in the house for several weeks.
We were to write about something we missed during the previous week, and I realized that Easter had come and gone with little fanfare. Since it was Mom’s favorite holiday, I talked about some of my memories.
We featured a 1955 survey from WERD in Atlanta, which has a good deal of history in both music and civil rights.
The word was “practice,” and I talked about some of the misadventures I had with practicing the guitar as well as an incident with my pharmacy.
All the regular features return, as well as Q through V for the A to Z Challenge. I’ll be writing the Monday post on the A to Z Challenge blog for tomorrow, and Monday is a freebie on M4.
