I didn’t realize I had such a big variety of ways of getting around until I started searching my archives for this weeks Sunday Post Transportation The Space shuttle shot is one of my favorites. We went out to the bay the day it made its final fly-by on the way to LA Museum. I don’t have any pictures of our local BART trains. Oh Wait but I do have to another local favorite the Ferry Boats that zip around the Bay.

I AM a Country Girl even if I look like a California Hippy.
The Carolina Chocolate Drop’s Rhiannon Gibbens vision of “down home country life” almost matches the world I grew up with in 1950′s & ’60 Oklahoma, except hers has a mixing of races which I never saw. Perhaps a growing honoring and celebrating woman has helped change the world since I was “A Country Girl” The shameful behaviors of our past are being slowly replaced be connection and recognition of one an others humanity. Or more to the point dancing together! The lady making biscuits in the video looks like my grandmother back then or maybe me now.

How has your experiences changed since child hood?
I was reminded how much I am enlivened by Cold Play’s Viva la Vida reading Colline’s Blog. She share a sweet family story and 2 very different versions Viva la Vida. Please check it out. I chose this version for the dancing by all the differently abled people celebrating the closing ceremonies of the 2011 Paralympics. The 2014 Paralympics start today.
Yesterday I Asked what super hero would you be, all the para olympians are heroes as far as I’m concerned.
Another Super Hero to me is Cold Play’s Viva la Vida drummer with the powerful right arm. He could turn stop a speeding freight train and he makes me sweat just looking at him. Ooops! Said too much. Let’s go dancing as we are able.
Which is your favorite Version of Viva la Vida?
PS. Remember you have to open on-line to see the videos and they’re best viewed in full screen.

I may be the Mother of the Goat Girl Priestess, but today I’m feeling kinda swampy, so I’m wearing a Mother Wolf veneer in the form of an old tattered sweatshirt that gives me strength and protection, it also keeps me warm.

Marie, the High Priestess of Pancakes, serving up Czech pancakes!
Pancake Tuesday is favorite at our house. Tis a big treat to have Pancakes for Dinner! Our visiting students always enjoy pancakes any time of day. My husband makes excellent Blueberry pancakes. One student like them so much she tried to take home pancake mix but it was confiscated , because it was a “white powder”
Last Summer our Czech student Marie made pancakes for us. They were a lot like crepes but you put cinnamon and sugar on them. YUM!!! Come back Marie we need more Today!
Why Pancake or Fat Tuesday? Well traditionally it is so you use up all the Fat before Lent to use up all the fat. I also heard that before refrigeration, say way back in the Middle Ages, by this time of the year all the meat, fat and grease that was rendered in fall had gotten rancid and need to be used up and gotten rid of before everyone became sick, thus the real reason for not eating meat and fat in late winter and early spring, or now what we call Lent!
The petals and leaves sticking to the windshield and the rain drizzling down the glass caught my eye. I snapped this shot before we had to turn on the wipers. I let the iPhone’s native camera do it’s job but knew I wanted to crop down to emphasize different details.
2. Car and most of dashboard cropped out for rainy day effect.
3. Cropped to emphasize the leaves and flower petals.
4. Bright Green Leaves and white petals really show up here. Dramatic effect from XPro

First:Just incase your having Olympics withdrawal here’s the most breathtaking Ice Dance Ever
We had never seen anything like it when Torvill and Dean took the ice in 1984. If you are too young to remember this it may seem dated, but previously all Ice Dancing had been old-fashioned skaters waltzes. When he twirls her around horizontally we all screamed like the first time we saw
The Beatles! Our Second Historic Moment
Sorry! Couldn’t find any complete versions something about copy rights.
What I remember about that Sunday in February 1964: My friend Bernadine (who remembers “Oh! Oh! Bernadine?”) picked six of us in her dad’s 1962 Edsel and took us to her house with the big rumpus room where we watched the first Beatles performance on The Ed Sullivan Show. We screamed and cried then sang just like the live audience. Then on the way back home we sang “Let Me Hold Your Hand” over and over shaking our heads just like Paul. Hope you can “Imagine” us in are cardigans with pelted skirts or blue jeans. For sure we all had helmet hair from back combing and masses of hairspray.
What is your all time favorite Olympic moment? What is your memory of watching the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan show? If you are old enough
