Born on Christmas Day

I heard this a while ago and decided that this would be my Christmas offering.  Brad Paisley was only 12 or 13 when he wrote this song.  Have a Happy Christmas.

We saw the last episode of series 2 last night. On French TV they put 5 episodes on every Saturday evening. Usually we don’t sit though anything on TV longer than an hour without falling asleep. We stayed awake till one in the morning, lapping up every drop!

I know that Keifer Sutherland was very involved in the project. He must be so disappointed to see it disappear. It’s refreshing to see a series about people doing good and helping each other. We loved David Mazouz as Jake, We’ll be looking out for him in the future.

Here’s the theme music twice over – magical!

Three years ago I wrote a short story 'I Can Fly'.  It was based on dreams I had when I was a child.

The I found someone who really flies....

The part that gives me goosebumps

And so let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire.

 Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York.

 Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania.

 Let freedom ring from the snow-capped Rockies of Colorado.

 Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California.

 But not only that:

 Let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia.

Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee.

Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi.

From every mountainside, let freedom ring.

And when this happens, and when we allow freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual:

 Free at last! Free at last! 

Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!

Baby Elephant Walk

Music for the weekend. I've always loved this tune by Henri Mancini.   Here are more posts about elephants:

The Book of Eli

Last Night I finally watched ‘The Book of Eli’. It was a little bit bloody for my taste, but I did enjoy it and didn’t fall asleep once. I was delighted to hear Reverend Al Green singing ‘How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?’, which must be one of the saddest songs of all time. It got me thinking about how lonely it would feel if the world was wrecked by an apolyptical event.

Denzel Washington is a great actor and, as always, Gary Oldman is the perfect baddie!

A postcard to celebrate the arrival of spring.  Heidi and Peter perhaps?

Little things please little minds...

What happens when you put soap in the microwave.  Of course the experiment is not carried out by someone who will have to clean the microwave afterwards.

It's called forced perspective photography

Brilliant and useful
