It's time for the weekly photo meme from the folks at Foto Pherrets

I read somewhere that we are all supposed to blog about this today, so...

Our word for the week is:

The Cucumber Falls are located in a very peaceful and secluded spot...

Take Me Back Tuesday

1. What music do you associate with vacations?
I suppose that would have to be The Moody Blues, since so many road trips involved seeing them...



2. Are there any albums that you seem to listen to more in the summer than the other seasons? If so what are they?
I don't think that my listening habits change all that much with the seasons, but I MIGHT be just a little more likely to bust out my Beach Boys albums in the summertime...
It's only natural!

3. What music do you like to listen to when your sitting out in the sun catching the rays (or just relaxing in the outdoors)
If relaxing is the key word here, then these two albums would definitely be playing...



Thank You 4.... - Michael Schenker



Thank You Volume 3 - Michael Schenker

The acoustic guitar work on these is like drugs for me!!!
It makes me spacey...

Top Five On Friday

Top five bands or albums that "I" should really listen to more

I'll go with the bands....

1. The Cult - I used to love them, but until today I only had their material on cassette. A good friend is helping me remedy the situation.

2. Helloween - I only have one of their CDs. I must buy more.

3. Iron Maiden - One can never listen to too much Iron Maiden!

4. McAuley-Schenker Group - I only have one CD from that point in Michael's career. I really want a copy of Save Yourself...

Monday Madness

The birthday edition...

1. Name one thing you received as a gift on your last birthday.
Have I mentioned that I don't have birthdays anymore?
November 20 is merely buy me a present day. I do believe that a day of dining and gambling at Wheeling Island Casino was one of my gifts last November...

1. What would be the "perfect" birthday gift?
Michael Schenker!!!!!



~drools~

3. Do you look forward to birthdays?
I don't even call them birthdays anymore. What do you think? At my age, I can do without getting older...

4. On your birthday, do you treat yourself to something special each year?
Going out to dinner on "that day" is a must!

5. Do you bother keeping up with your horoscope on a regular basis?
I have it posted to my Yahoo page. Sometimes I read it, sometimes I don't...

6. What zodiac sign are you, and do you think you fit the description for that sign?
I'm a classic example of the Scorpio personality...

Top Five On Friday

Top five Songs you love from artists you hate

This is quite difficult for me, as there is a reason that I just don't like certain artists, that being that their music just plain sucks (IMHO)...

1. How Will I Know - Whitney Houston
2. Breathe - Faith Hill
3. Soak Up The Sun - Sheryl Crow
4. Save A Horse, Ride A Cowboy - Big & Rich
5. Girls Lie Too - Terri Clark


I guess it's pretty obvious that there are two musical things that I generally don't like, female artists and country!

Take Me Back Tuesday

Memory Lane....

What musical formats do you remember (CD, Cassette, LP etc)?
CDs, cassettes, 8 tracks, reel to reel tapes, LPs...
I remember them all. Damn! I'm old.

What was your favorite format 5 years ago? 10? What is it now?
Five years ago it was much as it is today, CDs.
Ten years ago, it may have been cassettes.
Twenty years ago it was vinyl. I miss vinyl...

What was your first portable music player? What is your current portable music player?
That would be my doggie radio... AM! I think that I got it for Christmas in 1969. I loved that thing.

Monday Madness

It's all about computers this week...

1. Which web browser do you prefer?
Definitely Firefox...
If for some reason I need to view a page in IE, it has a plug in that allows me to do it without switching browsers.

2. Are you a PC user or MAC user?
I'm a PC girl. Macs are too expensive for my budget.

3. Will your next computer purchase happen within the next year (do you think)?
My computers are ancient, both at least six years old. I'd like to replace at least my laptop sometime this year.

4. Will you purchase your next computer at a local store or via the internet?
I have my eye on a nice, affordable laptop at the local Wal Mart...

5. Have you had any experience with Windows Vista?
None whatsoever. I have no desire to purchase a new operating system at the ridiculous prices they charge. I didn't install Windows XP until I was able to obtain a pirated copy.

6. What are your feelings about this new operating system (if any)?
Microsoft should perfect the old operating systems instead of always creating new ones.

I Miss The Birds

I've never been fond of birds, until last week. Spending quality time with the birds at the National Aviary last weekend changed my mind about them.

Some were quite friendly and love to pose, and even let you pet them...

Like these guys.





Others were just pretty to look at...







No matter, I wish that I could go visit these feathered friends every day!

Useful Information

At midnight on May 14, 2007, the cost to mail a one ounce domestic first class letter in The United States will increase from 39¢ to 41¢. Mail out your bills now to beat the increase! Of course, there will be 2¢ stamps available if you have lots of leftover stamps at the old rate, but buy early, 'cos they usually sell out quickly and take a while to restock.

Take Me Back Tuesday

It's a week for sharing....

What is your favorite way to share music with your friends?
That depends upon my friend's internet capabilities. I will happily upload files for a friend with a broadband connection. A friend with a dial up or (GASP) no internet connection will receive a burned CD.

What song or album do you feel the need to share with anyone who will listen?
This one...



I wonder if that old dude on my route ever bought a copy. He heard it playing in my truck and loved it!

Do you ever lend your CDs/tapes/etc to friends or family?
Hmmm.. Doesn't a certain meme mistress have an old vinyl album of mine on display in her room so that she can admire the pretty picture on the cover?!
I guess that means my answer is yes.

Did you ever discover a musical love because someone shared something with you? (mp3? Mix CD or tape)
My friend, Maria, has introduced me to several artists, including Vanilla Ninja, Dima Bilan, and H.I.M.

Take Me Back Tuesday

This is the shopping edition.

What is your favorite record/CD shop? Is it still in existence?
I honestly don't believe that there are any really good physical music stores left. Back in my high school days, Dee's Record Shop was where I bought all of my music. Alas the years have turned it into more of a video rental place these days, although I have still made an occasional musical find there. F Y E is the only music store around these days with any amount of selection, but their prices are outrageous!

Do you still buy most of your CDs in stores or do you purchase music online?
I buy most of my music at CD Universe these days...

What music store do you consider the world's best kept secret. (Meaning you can find anything there)?
If there is such a place, they're keeping it a secretfrom me as well...

What was one "hidden treasure" you found while shopping for music?
Kelly Keeling's Giving Sight To The Eye was definitely a well hidden treasure.



About the only place that it can be found is on EBay, but it IS worth it!
