  1. I’d like to visit another “place” on the Sgt. Pepper album:

    Given another crack at it, I could do 64 a whole lot better than I did it the first time. That pretty much applies to every year starting with ten, but there isn’t a song about that.

  2. Rise and Shine Baboons,

    Moon River. I want to go there. The songwriter, Johnny Mercer is from Savannah, Georgia, home of the Savannah River, which, if I recall correctly, is the Moon River of the song. But, then, maybe not. But not matter what the source of the song I will go to Savannah at any opportunity.

  3. Yesterday at the end of the Binder Day, Linda posted a comment about cats disorganizing things. Recently a client, a cat lover, send me this. It cracks me up:

      1. WordPress only likes stuff that comes directly from the web on to WordPress with no intermediary steps. It looks like you had it saved as a picture onto your desktop and that’s what WordPress doesn’t like. Well it’s one of the things that WordPress doesn’t like.

      1. My home town is near Early and Storm Lake. In the ‘70s I drove through Early on my way back and forth from college in Ames, Iowa. There was nothing there then either, except apparently Greg Brown’s Grandma’s garden and her canning supplies from the 50s and 60s.

  4. We are listening to Silvestre Reveltuas composition “Night Of The Maya” while Husband roasts tomatillas for Texas green enchilada sauce. I don’t know if I want to go to the Yucatan Peninsula–too hot and too many big insects.

    1. I’ve been to Graceland in Memphis. It was so interesting. It was clear standards of “Big” have changed—the house itself was much smaller than I expected. Then when we took the tour it became obvious that Elvis was a hillbilly with money—if you could paint it gold or put glitter on something, he did so. But it was not at “classy” or what I would admire.

      It was also so sad to me. Elvis was such a musical prodigy, doing his best work in the early days of jamming with other musicians. The recordings of that time, both visual and audio, are awe-inspiring. He made everyone a better musician. When he went to Vegas it ruined him. Too produced, too much violin, too not him.

  5. I also made Fench bread today. Paris is worth a trip. I also made a Punjabi chicken in onion tomato gravy. I will have to think long and hard about visiting India. I will do no cooking tomorrow.
