Well, I can check off a concert on My Bucket List… New Kids On The Block. I saw them with Boys II Men and Paula Abdul on Sunday, May 21st in Austin, Texas. 

I have always wanted to see them in concert and it’s taken me this long to do so. 

I brought the tickets anout six months ago and have been counting down the months and days till the concert. 

First up was Boyz II Men. They were as good as they were when they came out 25 years ago. They played their greatest hits. 

Then it was time for Paula Abdul. She looked great dancing on the stage with her dancers. 

Then it was time for NKOTB. OMG! That’s all I got to say about them. I can’t believe that this was the first time I’ve ever seen them in concert. 

They played all my favorites and the show was on of the bests I’ve ever seen. 

Here are some of the pictures from the concert I had really good seats for the concert. 

I am a forever NKOTB fan!

Slow Dance

Saw this and wanted to share it  

Make it a great day. 

Slow Dance 

This is a poem written by a teenager with cancer. She wants to see how many people get her poem. It is quite a poem, please pass it on. 

This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a New York Hospital.

It was sent by a medical doctor Make sure to read what is in the closing statement AFTER THE POEM.


Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?

Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?

 Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.

Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won’t last.

Do you run through each day on the fly?

When you ask, “How are you?”

Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done, do you lie in your bed,

with the next hundred chores running through your head?

You’d better slow down

Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short
The music won’t last.

Ever told your child, 

We’ll do it tomorrow?

And in your haste,

Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die 

Cause you never had time 

To call and say,’Hi’

You’d better slow down.

Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won’t last..

When you run so fast to get somewhere,

You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day,

It is like an unopened gift….

Thrown away.

Life is not a race.

Do take it slower

Hear the music

Before the song is over.


Dear All: 

PLEASE pass this mail on to everyone you know – even to those you don’t know!

It is the request of a special girl, who will soon leave this world due to cancer.

This young girl has 6 months left to live, and as her dying wish, she wanted to send a letter telling everyone to live their life to the fullest, since she never will. 

She’ll never make it to prom, graduate from high school, or get married and have a family of her own.

By you sending this to as many people as possible, you can give her and her family a little hope, because with every name that this is sent to, the American Cancer Society will donate 3 cents per name to her treatment and recovery plan. One guy sent this to 500 people! So I know that we can at least send it to 5 or 6.

 It’s not even your money, just your time! Please read n forward …

Just What I Needed To Hear 

I was on my way home tonight, after a long day at work and this sang came on. 

Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right” is a song written by Bob Dylan in 1962, sung by Elvis Presley.

I’ve heard this sing many times before, but for some reason, tonight the song had more meaning to me. 

Leave it to Elvis to turn my bad day into a good night. 


I usually don’t post pictures of myself here. But I wanted to post this one of my very good friend, Aldona and me. 

I met my friend, Aldona (left) about 2 1/2 years ago. We started off as co-workers and became friends. 

She was transferred to Dubai for work. We kept in touch. But it’s missed seeing my friend. 

She recently moved back to the States and I’m so thrilled to see my friend again.  

There are just some people that are on that special list. She is one of them. I trust her (which is something I don’t do often) and know that I can say anything and not be judged or criticized. Which is a rare quality in people. 

I have been blessed to have Aldona as my friend and I look forward to doing things around town with her. 

Knock Me Ovet With A Feather

Not ready to share my big journey just yet. But here’s a number that I want to share.

If you would have told me nine months ago this number would be associated to me and my life, I would have laughed in your face. But, here I am and this number means so much to me. 

I promise, I will share the meaning behind all these numbers I have been posting. But for right now, I just want to get a log of these numbers. 

Make it a great day and more later. 

Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)

There are certain songs that I seems to remember the words to and this is one of them.

“Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)” (1972) by Looking Glass.

I was one;y six years old when this song came out, so I must of heard it the radio while I was growing up. I just always remember listening to the song. But until this post, I have never seen the video of this song. Man, the 70’s were definitely a fashion statement in spades.

Now, every time it comes on, I have to sing along with it. These are the songs that make me smile and remember the times of when I was young and carefree!

Just in case you want to sing along to the song.

Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl) by Looking Glass

(dooda-dit-dooda), (dit-dooda-dit-dooda)

There’s a port on a western bay
And it serves a hundred ships a day
Lonely sailors pass the time away
And talk about their homes
And there’s a girl in this harbor town
And she works layin’ whiskey down
They say “Brandy, fetch another round”
She serves them whiskey and wine
The sailors say “Brandy, you’re a fine girl” (you’re a fine girl)
“What a good wife you would be” (such a fine girl)
“Yeah your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea”
(dooda-dit-dooda), (dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)
Brandy wears a braided chain
Made of finest silver from the North of Spain
A locket that bears the name
Of the man that Brandy loves
He came on a summer’s day
Bringin’ gifts from far away
But he made it clear he couldn’t stay
No harbor was his home
The sailor said ” Brandy, you’re a fine girl” (you’re a fine girl)
“What a good wife you would be” (such a fine girl)
“But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea”
(dooda-dit-dooda), (dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)
Yeah, Brandy used to watch his eyes
When he told his sailor stories
She could feel the ocean fall and rise
She saw its ragin’ glory
But he had always told the truth, lord, he was an honest man
And Brandy does her best to understand
(dooda-dit-dooda), (dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)
At night when the bars close down
Brandy walks through a silent town
And loves a man who’s not around
She still can hear him say
She hears him say ” Brandy, you’re a fine girl” (you’re a fine girl)
“What a good wife you would be” (such a fine girl)
“But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea”
(dooda-dit-dooda), (dit-dooda-dit-dooda-dit)
“Brandy, you’re a fine girl” (you’re a fine girl)
“What a good wife you would be” (such a fine girl)
“But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea”
