It's been...

...a busy few months.  Seems like everytime I turn around something (good or bad) is happening.  I still haven't re-loaded my Photoshop software and yes, I am STILL taking a photo everyday.

Yesterday, I was going to post a video in honor of Palm Sunday Passion Sunday somebody changed the name and forgot to tell me. However, when I got home there was a bit of a problem. A water pipe was broken and the water had to be turned off. Do you know how many times I wash my hands? I made do but I forgot to post this video.

When Jesus Christ Superstar first premiered on Broadway, I was only 10 years old. I remember the photospread in Life Magazine. I also remember a bit of a controversy because it was a rock opera about Jesus and the week leading up to His crucificion.

It wasn't until the movie was released and the nuns took us to see the movie at the Isis Theater in Fort Worth that I actually got to hear the music and see a movie director's interpetation of the rock opera. I have viewed subsequent stage productions and it is still one of my favorite Andrew Lloyd Webber pieces.

T'nT (This 'n That) for March 22, 2010

I have quite a bit of catching up to do on my photo journal. I had trouble launching Photoshop the other day and just found the cd to reinstall the software. So there will be more photos.
In the meantime...let me share a few things with you.

I'm not a big fan of JLo movies. I thought she was good in Selena and she co-starred really well with Jane Fonda in Monster-In-Law. I think I might have new favorite though...The Back Up Plan and it is because of this guy.
His name is Alex O'Loughlin.

Friend Ernie was recently in New Orleans and went to the Chris Owens Nightclub on Bourbon Street. Yesterday he told me the story about his evening at the club and it was hysterical. He said that Chris did a Lady Gaga song. And wouldn't you know it? Someone has posted Chris's rendition of  Lady Gaga's Poker Face on YouTube. It is TOO funny!  Here it is.

Tomorrow is Free Pastry Day at Starbucks (while supplies last). I figure I spend enough money there they can give me a muffin or something. So if you want a free pastry (while supplies last), click here.

Calvin was beginning to look like Wooly Bully so he went to the groomer. Spring is right around the corner and we have been having some quasi-high temperatures recently. He is one cool dog and I wanted him to be cool.

And speaking of Wooly Bully, it took almost a lifetime to figure out what "...let's not be L7..." meant. If you look at L7, it forms a square. Hence, "...let's not be L7 (square)..."

It was a great day for a walk.  Thank you to everyone who supported the cause.  Houstonians took to the streets to make a difference.  Kevin and I walked the 3.1 miles (5K) together.  The rest of my posse was somewhere in front of us and behind us.  To see more pics, click here.

(It has been a busy week and I just realized that I haven't posted any pics from the week that was.  So I will try to catch up.)
Of all days to get stuck in traffic due to a wreck.  A Mercedes and Mustang got into a brawl and neither of them won.  In fact, the Benz still had the dealer plates on it.  OUCH! I was stuck at the intersection for about 15 minutes and STILL had to get home to walk Calvin before going to class.

It's Rodeo Houston time in H-town. I was given two tickets to Saturday's rodeo. Couldn't find anybody to go with me so after making my way down to Pearland for a birthday party, I went to the rodeo. I also strolled around the fair grounds and snapped some pics. To see more pics, click here.

I am taking a Continuing Education class at Rice University. We are in the Duncan Building. One evening I noticed a sign stating who had paid for the ceiling. I thought that was a bit unusual and then I looked up and saw a HUGE mosaic. This is the center of it.

Jukebox Wednesday

I haven't done a Jukebox Wednesday posting in a long time. I found the remix of Lady Antebellum's Need You Now. I like the original version but I *heart* this version!

I've Been Working On The Railroad

I can't remember when I last did an endorsement for a proprietor. Chuck Holloman owns Studio Holloman. He is a FaceBook friend who really have never actually met. We came close to meeting one night at the P!nk Concert. I was FaceBooking and he was reading my status updates. He commented that he was one section over. So I stood up and waved and so did he.

Chuck is a very talented photographer. Last night I was looking at some new pics he posted and there were pics of my friend Jeremy. Jeremy is fine looking guy and a very nice guy too! Here are the pics. And now you know why I've been humming I've Been Working On The Railroad.
