Stars that shoot, fall and stay firmly in place Shine so abidingly the darkest sky cannot erase You can follow them to Timbuktu or to Heaven Itself Bing sings of moonbeams that can be jarred and shelved The moral, if they is one, is in the sky from ocean to sea There are countless celestial lights t...

I understood everyone, trust me. That anyone's demise or misfortune is a cause for joy is a sad thing to me. Whether you believe in the afterlife, the afternoon or after dinner drinks, a man's frailty and death could serve as a meditation on vainglory or the ultimate futility of the powerful. I just...

I think death is a time for prayer for those who pray and reflection for those who don't. Certainly it's a realization how fleeting and trivial politics really are and how those who long for peace seem to want it for the masses but not individuals. No one deserves mercy-thus it's mercy. I pray for t...

They were a band from the 80's who were often compared to Elvis Costello. Their best known song was 'Second Choice'. The lead singer and guitarist went on to work with Richard Thompson among other things of course! Welcome!

Welcome and I love it! Really good from what I've heard so far and if Jim Baio is a reference to the minor actor of yesteryear I'm swooning. It brought Any Trouble to mind and that's a very nice thing indeed.

My current favorite are dining room chairs sold only by themselves. Glorious ebony wood rounded back that continues to the arms and is supported by a marvelous swirl that angles into the back legs.

Actually, Billie Holiday's is my favorite.


Of course it is that's why it wasn't a choice. As revenge I'll choose Billie Holiday's 'More Than You Know'. 8)
