Cancun, Mexico

I have some friends vacationing in Cancun, Mexico at the Beach Palace Resort in  Isla Mujeres Quintana Roo and here are a couple of pictures that Abby Miller Hanger took of the resort that they are staying at and the beach. What a sight!

Thanks for post such great pictures! One of these days, I will be there on my own vacation!

“Love Loss Hope Repeat” by Carbon Leaf

Have you heard this song?

I love all types of music and love finding new groups and songs. A friend of mine, Abby Miller Hanger, has a business, L.o.L. Legacy of Love Video Productions, were she make these great videos using pictures/videos and music. Her most recent video she made features a song, “Love, Loss, Hope, Repeat” by Carbon Leaf.



So after I heard the song, I had to Google them to find the song and get a copy to put on my iPod. Here is what I found out about Carbon Leaf.

Carbon Leaf is a five-piece indie rock band from Richmond, Virginia–known for their Alt-Country, Celtic and Folk infused Indie Rock. On March 20, 2010 in a radio interview on WCNR the band announced that they are leaving Vanguard Records with the aim to release music more frequently and via media other than CD.

From Wikipedia

This was from the Wolf Trap.

From the heart of Virginia, this roots/pop Celtic-influenced rock band captivates audiences with their soaring, energetic songs and well-crafted lyrics.

  • In 2001 Carbon Leaf won a Coca-Cola New Music Award, competing against a thousand other unsigned bands. The prize was a performance on the American Music Awards, the first unsigned band ever to do so.
  • Their live performances have been compared to Dave Matthews Band and R.E.M.
  • One of the band’s most popular songs on iTunes is “The Friendship Song,” part of the Curious George 2: Follow That Monkey soundtrack. Several of the tracks on the album are sung by Carbon Leaf.

Just a little bit of everything.

Detroit Lions are 5 and 0!! Woo Whoo!!


Dancing with the Stars (Season 13)I can’t believe Carson Kressley and Anna TrebunskayNancy Grace and Tristan MacManus (I ❤ you, Tristan!), Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer are still on the show!! They must have a really big fan bthat keeps voting for them to be on the show. I thought Chynna Phillips and Tony Dovolani would do a lot better than then did. I don’t think Tony had a chance to dance with his shirt off this season.

Anyone else besides me think that Mark Harmon is a total fox?? (OK, I just dated myself by that saying!)

What to wish a Happy Anniversary to my friends, Kelvin Hanger and Abby Miller Hanger.

They had one of the coolest receptions. They had a chocolate fountain and a Baked Potato Bar. Very cool and tasty!

Check out the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly. It’s their The Reunions Issue. It’s always fun to see what the stars look like now.
