Newcomer meets 80s POP star #BoTB results

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Hello, kittens and dawgs in this round of BoTB I asked you to vote La Diva or Sheena Easton covering The Emotion’s “Best of My Love”.  The numbers came in with a strong lead for the 80s POP star. I scratched my head.  When I was putting this battle together I thought more people would like the newcomer’s strong R&B vocals but it didn’t like it was going in that direction.

I liked both covers but clearly, I liked one slightly more than the other.  I liked Sheena’s jazzy version and smooth vocals over LaDiva more copy-cat version. In the end, the newcomers didn’t make the cut only securing half the votes of the 80s POP star. I sorta thought LaDiva would carry more weight than they did but in the results were an 8 to 4 victory for Sheena Easton!

Wayback Wednesdays Presents: Star Gazing to Star Watching

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Angela @ Mommy Time Out has prompted us to go Wayback Wednesday to the year…

1988!

Where were you and what do you remember?

Space the final frontier has marveled mankind.  The popular TV series turn Hollywood big screen sensation Star Trek caused us to wonder about what’s beyond our horizon.

The Hubble Space Telescope began operating that year, which gave humanity glimpses of images never seen or at least not like what it’s capable of sharing.

Are you intrigued by the universe, far away galaxies, or star-gazing? Be in awe, as you click-through the Hubble’s site photo gallery, and for an instance soak up the sense you have gone where no man has ever gone before.
Can you image, how some of the early astronomers like Copernicus, Galileo, and Newton would gasp at how truly brilliant these discoveries are? As distinguished as we may envision these men, I believe they would have a jaw dropping experience, if they could see what the Hubble has given the world. Deep space exploration is cool and should remain a part of our culture indefinitely!

From staring gazing to star watching, we have Thomas Edison’s revolutionary invention, the Kinetoscope, (the first movie projector) in 1897 on this day in history to thank for Hollywood’s turn out of incredible film entertainment.
