Song Lyrics Of The Day

From John Anderson's #4 hit from 1981:


I'm just and old chunck of coal,
But I'm gonna be a diamond some day ...

Unbelievable.

Vegetarian Jambalaya


I cook on Wednesday and Thursday nights, as well as on weekends. I love it.

Last night (Wednesday) I made the most scrumptious vegetarian jambalaya. I tried to upload the pictures here, but had no success.

I uploaded the set to my Flickr account. Simply click here to view my vegetarian jambalaya pictures and read my account.

Thanks.

All The Best,

Remember ...

Don't be nice to a fault. That's not being nice, that's being cowardice.

Standing up for yourself isn't being selfish; it's being fair. After all, if you treat others well, why not expect the same? Kind of like The Golden Rule.

Nothing is guaranteed except for death and taxes.

People do "get over it".

All The Best,

-- Don

Yahoo Mail

I've been using the Yahoo Mail AJAX-based beta for the past month or so. This morning, I switched back to the original version.

The beta was too slow.

House Plans

Which one?

the More

the Delmonte Manor

Or this one, which I think is my favorite.

All The Best,

P.S. I'll post more plans later.

Dubai


Dubai is in the news lately.

Yeah ... I've been to Dubai.

Working At Home

I've started my new job. Until we get moved down to Rocky Mount, I'm working from my home in York.

Working at home, contrary to what you may think, is not "easy". I find myself taking fewer and shorter breaks, pushing myself to abstain from all appearance of slothfullness.

Given that ... Thursday afternoon music:



All The Best,

One of the benefits ...

One of the benefits of our soon move to Rocky Mount, NC, is that we'll be able to listen to UNC's radio station. Of particular interest is Back Porch Music:


WUNC-FM's home-grown Back Porch Music is the longest continually running locally-produced program on the radio station. Each week, the program presents a wide range of acoustic-based folk music - from contemporary singer/songwriters to old-time musicians of the 20s and 30s, and from classic Celtic to blues - and beyond. Some of the artists you're likely to hear on WUNC's Back Porch Music include: Nickel Creek, Dar Williams, The Red Clay Ramblers, Doc Watson, Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, Maura O'Connell, DeDannan, Bob Dylan, Elizabeth Cotten, Pete Seeger, Cherish the Ladies, The Shady Grove Band, Jim Watson, June Tabor, Memphis Slim, John Gorka, Stan Rogers, The Carter Family, Tift Merritt, Cousin Emmy, Hank Williams (Sr.), Alison Krauss and Union Station, Jackson Browne, Etta Baker, Kate Rusby, Altan, Sonny Terry, Uncle Dave Macon, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Richard Shindell, Tim & Mollie O'Brien, and thousands of other related artists.

Back Porch Music airs Fridays and Saturday from 8p-12M (with Freddy Jenkins), and Sundays from 8p-11 PM (with Keith Weston).


Woo-hoo ... y'all!

All The Best,

-- Don, AKA "Northerner by birth, Southerner by choice"
