So, I decided to have a couple of drinks last night. I wasn’t terribly drunk, but I was feeling good. Bonnie and I were listening to The Beatles, who we both love. I thought I’d share this amusing exchange:
Lottie: Which movie did they sing Help in?
Lottie: Uh huh.
Bonnie: The name of the movie is Help.
Lottie: [cracks up laughing like a total dork] See, you can’t talk to me about these things while I’m doing this. [motions to glass of Jameson on the rocks]
OK, so maybe you had to be there.
Anyway, the song has been playing in my head all day, and it occurred to me how perfectly appropriate it actually is right now. So it is with deep love and gratitude that I dedicate this song to my best girlfriend and sister of my heart.
With the holiday season upon us, I thought I’d start by posting this warm greeting here. So, from my home/heart/blog to yours:
Now don’t say I never gave you anything. 8)
What does your taste in art say about your personality?
I found this at Heidi’s blog, Southpaugh Homeschool. I had fun taking it and thought I’d post the results here. Some of the art is pretty cool too! Go on and give it a shot!
Apparently I’m an Impressionist:

Impressionism is a movement in French painting, sometimes called optical realism because of its almost scientific interest in the actual visual experience and effect of light and movement on appearance of objects. Impressionist paintings are balanced, use colored shadows, use pure color, broken brushstrokes, thick paint, and scenes from everyday life or nature.
People that like Impressionist paintings may not alway be what is deemed socially acceptable. They tend to move on their own path without always worrying that it may be offensive to others. They value friendships but because they also value honesty tend to have a few really good friends. They do not, however, like people that are rude and do not appreciate the ideas of others. They are secure enough in themselves that they can listen to the ideas of other people without it affecting their own final decisions. The world for them is not black and white but more in shades of grey and muted colors. They like things to be aestically pleasing, not stark and sharp. There are many ways to view things, and the impresssionist personality views the world from many different aspects. They enjoy life and try to keep a realistic viewpoint of things, but are not very open to new experiences. If they are content in their live they will be more than likely pleased to keep things just the way they are.

I recently started a Sunday theme called Lazy Sunday Round-up. In it, I link to interesting posts I’ve read throughout the week, or on Sunday mornings while drinking too much coffee. While reading about and listening to The Beatles last week, I got the idea to start a new theme which I will call Flashback Friday.
On Flashback Fridays I will post a blast from the past of some kind or another. I may post music videos, old televisions adverts, old news articles or photos of vintage clothing and hairstyles. I might dig up an old post of mine. Or one of yours!
The idea is to start the weekend off on a light note, so it’s not likely that anything posted for Flashback Friday will be controversial. It may start us thinking, though, and that’s a good thing.
If you have any ideas or suggestions for stuff to post, please send them to me via my contact page or email me if you already have the address. Please don’t post them in comments as that would spoil the surprise, obviously.
I’ll kick it off with something from The Beatles since they inspired this whole thing (and because I totally love them). Besides being a great flashback, it reflects some of my personal views. I also think it’s quite appropriate, considering what’s happening right now.
Take it away, John, George, Ringo and Paul!

No need to call the cops or anything. He’s a good man and didn’t mean any harm.
It seems that Mike has given birth to a new meme. At least I think that’s what he said:
While I was thinking about Bacon numbers and the like, I happened to have my browser open and I caught sight of a recent comment, and thus was a new meme born.
Here’s how it works:
1. Go to the latest comment you have from someone else. Go to the blog of the person who made it. If that person doesn’t have a blog, go to the next one.
2. Click the latest comment on that blog from someone else. Go to the blog of the person who made it. If that person doesn’t have a blog, go to the next one.
3. Do this again until you have gone six blogs away. If anyone on the way doesn’t have a latest comments widget, just pick the first comment you see.
4. Post about it. Tag at least a couple of other people.
Mike posted his and then tagged me, so here’s what I found on my little journey:
