Ramblings Of A Caffeinated Mind 012613.1

This is too cute!


Swiss Miss
Tina Turner has announced that she is giving up her United States of America citizenship and will become a citizen of Switzerland. Tina and her longtime partner have been living in Switzerland for awhile. Speculation is that she is doing this for love and/or to avoid a higher tax rate in the U.S.A. which could be interpreted as love of money. Anywho, she is fabulous regardless of where she lives and which country she decides to claim as place of residence.


Together Again
I found out the other day that Manny Olivo passed away. I had not seen Manny in awhile but every time that I did he always had a big smile on his face.  Manny's death comes in the form of unexpected news and caught many of us by surprise.  He is one of several people who have recently left this world too soon.

Manny had been very active in Houston. He helped raise money for various causes and will leave a void. I am a BIG Kylie Minogue fan but I think Manny is her biggest fan ever.  That is another thing I will always remember about him.

 A celebration of his life will take place on January 27, 2013 at Guava Lamp. Donations are being accepted to help offset the cost of his funeral. For more information, here is a link to the Facebook event.

Even though this isn't a Kylie song, it is a song I think about every time someone leaves us.
