Thursday2Q: Appliance Brands/Buying Factors


Howdy, Kittens & Dawgs! This morning’s artist popped up on my radar when I stumbled upon this song from her debute album, Unbreakable Smile (2015).  Tori has recorded mewsic on YouTube since she was 14 and was even a contestant on American Idol season 9.  I won’t sugar coat it, she has talent but her vocal style only shines in some of her songs and she has a horrible habit of not saying her words completely. Yeah, it’s a trend in mewsic style but I don’t have to like it.  Anywho, she does a beautiful job covering the Disney’s song, Colors of the Wind with a softness to her voice that made it soooo sweet and pleasant to my ear. This is what Tori should be doing more of! If you’re interested you can learn more about her on Wikipedia.

Last week’s 5 goals didn’t work out quite as well as hoped. Life threw a wrench in my plans. The Sunday before last, one of our refrigerators finally bit the dust. What’s the world coming to when a major appliance nearly 50 years old dies? 🙂 I’m not complaining. In fact, I can not believe that old gal stood reliable all these years.  This thing was in the house when we moved here in 1980. We bought a second refrigerator around the time DS was a year old and that thing has given us nothing but trouble from day one. Not to mention, I’m certain it’s on its last leg.  I just hope it can hold off until we find a replacement for frig #1 which brings me to why my goals fell apart last week. I was absorbed in research for repair possibilities while looking for a new unit. I’m still looking but this week, I’m doing better on the exercise score but all else I’m not doing so well with my diet. I’ll keep plogging along until it clicks.

 

1. Do you have a favorite appliance brand? I don’t know that I have a favorite, but I am not considering a Kitchenaid because that’s the newer one we have that’s given us a headache from the get-go.  I’m leaning heavily toward Frigidaire. That’s the brand of our upright freezer.

2. What are the determining factors in choosing a refrigerator? A top priority is that it is made in the United States. Second, the company is not owned by a communist country, like Haier. Incidentally, I learned that they bought out GE. There goes a good solid American brand down the tube! Third, I look for the features I want in my frig. Preferably a unit that has independent controls in the refrigerated and freezer compartments. The freezer must be on top and overall depth between 26″ – 28″. Anything more makes it difficult to reach food in the back. This is really hard to find, too.  I want a simple shelf layout, nothing fancy that cuts down on cold-storage possibilities like in the Frigidaire line.

This one is smaller than our old unit but I like it. The only I do not like is it doesn’t have a handle to grip, it’s the molded type which I’m not crazy about and may knock this out of the running. A trip to Sears is needed to determine if this is an issue or not.

The week will soon wind down by I’ll be back tomorrow with some giggles and a whole lot more of Friday Fun Stuff!

“Get to Know Me 2018” Cathy Chats 2018 Week #3

Good-morning, kittens & dawgs! Last week, Kisma shared Getting to know me…2018. I like the idea and I decided to play along. I lifted the questions from her webpage with the original author’s link back at the end, so please visit both bloggers. Grab a cup of coffee and listen to the below US Top 40 playlist while you read my first edition of “Get to Know Me 2018“.

 

 

0. Share your profile picture if you have one. I use this picture on my blog profile.

However, if you want to see my mug shot, I mean my beautiful face then look under my About Cathy section.

 

1. Who are you named after? My grandma told me I was named after her best friend, Kathleen but when I asked my mom she didn’t have an answer to why she named me Cathy. Incidentally, my grandma spelled my name with a “K” her entire life. She was the only one to do it in the family until this past Christmas when half of my aunts/uncles addressed me as “Kathy”. What’s with that? I signed our Christmas card with Cathy and still my name is misspelled. *smack forehead*

2. Do you like your handwriting? Yep, I like it. I use a hybrid cursive style between old school and Italic handwriting. DH refers to it as decorative and tells me to use clear, print style lettering on envelopes for legibility. lol

3. What is your favorite lunch meat? Turkey & Cheese. That doesn’t sound lean but per slice it only 25 or 30 calories. It has fewer calories than Bologne or other lunch meats and I actually prefer it. 🙂

4. Longest relationship? I’m assuming we’re speaking of one’s significant other, right? This June, DH and I will celebrate 39 years of marriage and September marks our 42nd anniversary as a couple. But…I’ve known DH most of my life.  I reckon since we survived nearly 42 years of togetherness then we may as well stick it out. What do you think? 🙂

5. Do you still have your tonsils? Yep.

6. Would you bungee jump? Are you kidding? Well…it depends how much you will pay me? No pay, then never mind the cost isn’t worth all the tea in China. I’ll keep my feet over solid ground thank you!

7. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off? I have a pair of tennis shoes I do not untie. I have them laced and tied loose enough for me to slip them on and off. These are the ones I wear for quick trips outside to get the mail or what ever. My regular sneakers I do tie/untie.

8. Favorite ice cream? That’s a tough choice because I never meet an ice cream that I didn’t like but I’d say my favorite is Chocolate Peanut Butter. I usually pick chocolate varieties over vanilla every time.

9. What is the first thing you notice about people? I’m not totally sure but I think it’s the face in general. I notice if a person is happy, sad, angry, trusting, suspicious, old, young, quizzical, bewildered, or any other expressions. After some of the news articles, I’m going to pay even more attention to anyone approaching me. It’s scary to think of how crazy, evil some people are throwing acid or other substances in people’s faces.

10. Football or baseball? Football.

11. What color pants are you wearing? Red sweatpants. It’s winter. I like snuggly warm stuff for lounging around the house or doing chores.

12. Last thing you ate? By the time you read this answer it is for last Wednesday morning and that would be breakfast – an egg, a biscuit, and gravy. Yum!

13. If you were a crayon, what color would you be? My favorite color, PINK!

14. Favorite smell? I guess I’d have to say “the best part of waking up…” fresh brewed coffee. Mmm, good!

15. Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone? The receptionist at DH’s eye surgeon to request a refill on his script.

16. Hair color? Sandy brown spackled with glitter.  Doesn’t that sound better than….shhh… gray?.

17. Eye color? Hazel-green. Of course, this changes. Sometimes I have hazel-brown or hazel-gray eyes depending on the light hitting my eyes.

18. Favorite foods to eat? Pizza, Mexican, and hamburgers!

19. Scary movies or happy endings? Definitely happy endings!

20. Last movie you watched?

 

21. Favorite Holiday? Christmas.

22. Beer or Wine? Neither. I don’t drink alcoholic beverages. Blah!

23. Night owl or early bird? Early bird.

24. Favorite day of the week? Friday.

25. Can you crack an egg one-handed? I can but I haven’t purrfected it. Sometimes I get a little messy.

26. Coffee or Tea? I’m a coffee drinker but I do enjoy hot tea when it’s cold. Needless to say, I’ve been drinking a lot of it lately.

27. Favorite go to beverage? Water mostly but I do like having Diet Rite with dinner especially on the weekends.

28. Mac or PC? I love Apple products! We converted from PC to Mac in 2007 but we still have a Windows based laptop & desktop computer. They aren’t used very much, though. In fact, I really need to update the security programs on both.

29. Do you prefer to read or watch TV? I’m not much for reading other than blogs so I prefer to watch TV.

30. Which three of your favorite bloggers you would like to know more about? (link to their about page if they have one) I welcome the chance to get to know all of my readers, so if you like this concept  then please lift these questions below to create your own post and don’t forget to do a pingback to my blog so I’ll know to stop by to check it out!

10 Blue Song Titles #4M + #BoTB & #Sparks

 

Good morning, Kittens and Dawgs! Dang, here it is the middle of January!! If this is sign that another year will zip out of sight then I’d like to stop the world from spinning so I can get off. Anywho, it’s fabulous to see you. I will warn you now, this is gonna be a long post so feel free to read through or fast-forward to the area you’re most interested in. Are you ready to groove to some mewsic? Excellent. This week’s Monday’s Mewsic Moves Me theme is “Colors in Song Titles” which I decided to use one of my favorite colors with these 10 Blue Song Titles!

 

    1. Love is Blue” (cover) by Marty Robbins. This isn’t the first time I shared this song, I did so last July. It’s one of my favorites from the late 60s.
    2. Blue On Blue” by Bobby Vinton hit the charts in 1963. I was too young at the time to know this but Google tells me his song stayed on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 13 weeks peaking at No. 3. It also charted No. 2 on the Billboard Middle-Road Singles Chart. Interestingly, Vinton’s success with this song prompted him to record an entire blue-themed album which produced an even bigger hit, “Blue Velvet” which I almost used today. 🙂
    3. Blue Moon of Kentucky” (cover) by LeAnn Rimes, originally written as a Waltz in 1946 by Bluegrass mewsician, Bill Monroe and the Blue Grass Boys. Many artists recorded this oldie but it was Elvis Presley who turned the classic into a pop tune.
    4. Jackie Blue” by southern rock band The Ozark Mountain Daredevils is an international hit, reaching No. 3 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart and stayed for two weeks in May 1975. “Jackie Blue” is the bands’ best charting single.
    5. Crystal Blue Persuasion” by Tommy James & The Shondells” became one of the groups biggest hits in 1969, ranking 2 on Billboard Pop Singles where it stayed for 3-weeks. James told Hitch Magazine in 1985 that he came up with the song title from the Bible. This is what he said, “I took the title from the Book of Revelations in the Bible, reading about the New Jerusalem. The words jumped out at me, and they’re not together; they’re spread out over three or four verses. But it seemed to go together, it’s my favorite of all my songs and one of our most requested.” Wiki says, James’ manager recalls James was actually inspired by his readings of the Book of Ezekiel, which (he remembered as) speaking of a blue Shekhinah light that represented the presence of the Almighty God, and of the Book of Isaiah and Book of Revelation, which tell of a future age of brotherhood of mankind, living in peace and harmony. I thought this tidbit was fascinating to learn considering many thought the song was referrencing crystal meth or a blue colored LSD tablet available at the time. I’d like to think drugs had no part of the picture but only God knows the answer.
    6. Blue Collar Man” by Styx released in 1979 as a single from Pieces of Eight album. The song reached No. 9 in the US. I’m not a vinyl collector but I read that some issues got pressed on a translucent blue vinyl and is a highly sought after collectible.
    7. Blue Eyes” by Elton John isn’t one of my favorite songs by him. I could’ve gone with a different color song title like “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” but I have a theme to keep. 😉  “Blue Eyes” did well, though. It rode the Billboard Hot 100 charts for three weeks, peaking at # 12 and it took #1 on the Adult Contemporary charts for two weeks.
    8. Forever in Blue Jeans” by Neil Diamond released the year we married (1979). Although, I liked some of Diamond’s song I wasn’t really fan.  I barely remember this song. I liked this little fact  I found at Wikipedia…According to Cotton Incorporated “Neil Diamond might have been right when he named his 1979 #1 hit “Forever in Blue Jeans”: 81% of women are planning their next jeans purchase to be some shade of blue.” The song has been used to promote the sale of blue jeans, most notably Will Ferrell, impersonating Neil Diamond singing, for The Gap. Coincidentally, Diamond himself did radio ads for H.I.S. brand jeans in the 1960s, more than a decade before he sang this song.
    9. Bluer Than Blue” by country, pop artist Michael Johnson is one of many entertainers who passed last year and its with this song many associate the artist with.  “Bluer Than Blue” released in 1978 and became Johnson’s first hit song topping the adult contemporary chart for three weeks.
    10. Blue Suede Shoes” (cover) by Elvis Presley is the version I remember but it was Carl Perkins‘s original Cashbox Best Selling singles for 16-weeks and riding the #2 position for 2-weeks.  Elvis performed the song three times on National TV shows in 1956.  Wiki cited Moore saying this about the song…”Presley recorded the song to help out Perkins after his accident. Elvis wasn’t really thinking at that time that it was going to make money for Carl; he was doing it as more of a tribute type thing. Of course Carl was glad he did. It really helped as his record started going down.” Presley’s version did well on the charts (#20) but didn’t come close to Perkins’ success. It sounds like the King had a soft spot in his heart for helping others.

What mewsic moves you today?

Hold on to your hat, the mewsic isn’t over yet. It’s now time for round two of Battle of the Bands! Today I’m using my 4M theme inspiration for today’s battle song choice, except I’m giving you three song titles featuring the key words blue jeans.

Song #1 is by Train with Danny Trejo lipsyching the lyrics at time to “Angel in Blue Jeans”.  It’s kind of funny watching Trejo pretending to sing because his appearance definitely does not match Patrick Monahan’s vocals.

 

 

Song #2 is an oldie. I’m not 100% sure who did it first one sources claims Bruce Bruno released “Venus in Blue Jeans” in 1962 but the guy who shared this music video says, Barry Mann released it first in 1955 before recorded it 1961. It doesn’t matter to me, though. I like Mann’s version better than Bruno’s anyhow. *UPDATE A new source clarified some facts with these facts… Mann recorded the demo in 1961 and 1962 hit versions recorded (US #7) Jimmy Clanton & (UK #4) Mark Wynter.

 

 

Song #3 is the only cover in this battle. A Neil Diamond cover of “Forever in Blue Jeans” by Idol hopeful, Jason Castro.

 

Ok, here’s the drill. Voting is open to everyone visiting. There is NO wrong vote, except if you DON’T vote. You can start by telling me in comments which artist or in this case song you like best and why (optional).

Who gets your vote, Angel, Venus, or Forever… in Blue Jeans?

 

 

You’ll find more awesome battles underway at some of these blog listed below (not everyone is doing the bi-monthly showdowns now) and if you’d like to be included in the fun, then contact Stephen requesting to be added to the list.

Cathy Chats 2018 Week #2

Good-morning, Kittens & Dawgs! I don’t know about you but I’m really tired of winter. Last week was so frigid I wished I were a polar bear or at least had a furry coat like one or maybe I could snuggle in front of a fire on one sipping a hot cup of cocoa. Oh well…the point being I didn’t have one but wished I had a fur coat that is.  I would’ve cried but afraid my tears would turn into ice cubes.

See it happens! What was the coldest day/night last week in your area?

Nearly every day since mid-December, I’ve done some doodling with my birthday present (Apple Pencil). I’m having such fun playing with it. DH is the bestest! The first thing I sketched was a realistic apple. Would you like to see? Of course, you would! That was a silly question.

Sketched design in Procreate app and I followed the basics from this YouTube step-by-by illustration, then taking what I learned expanded on my drawing.

As it turned out after looking through my digital sketches this wasn’t my first but close to my first. I actually drew a wintry scene which wasn’t too bad but I want to give it a second try. Also, I drew the picture for my Christmas greetings. I’m just busy, busy, busy sketching!

This is fun but twisted realistic art illustration. It’s really good but kinda gives me the heebee-geebees. That being said, I hope to be this good some day. 🙂

I think it’s time for another energy boost…

I was never one for energy drinks. In my children’s teen years they used to drink them. I sampled what they had and I didn’t like the taste. I will stick to regular coffee.  It’s not fancy but tastes good and is cheap comparatively speaking. I guess I’ll get my energy boost with a second cup of coffee instead this morning.

New Year’s Eve we watched some of the big bash in New York when they cut away to the festivities in Hollywood. There was a song that caught my ear but now I can’t remember the artist and I didn’t get the name of the tune, so I decided to go in search for it on YouTube when I came across Camila Cabello. Someone in Blogosphere (I’m thinking I heard about Camila from my pal, Tom from SDMM ) introduced me to this young lady with this mewsic video. It has a funny opening but if you don’t want to watch all the fluff then fast-forward to 2:38 and begin the song.

 

I loved the soap opra beginning; totally over acted and ridiculous making it purrfect! lol If you like Camila’s voice, then you may want to give a listen to a newer YouTube upload Real Friends. I kinda like her style but I do have a thing for Latin mewsic.

How’s the new year going, any wonderful things happening  with you?

I’m linking up taking a HOT coffee break with Stacy Uncorked and Eugenia @BrewNSpew this morning and you’re invited to come with and let me remind you to visit again tomorrow for not-so Wordless Wednesday.

#4M 2018 FREEBIE Week 1 + #Sparks & #BoTB results

 

I invite you to plug-in with the “Sparks” community hosted by good pal, Annie at McGuffy’s Reader where you can energize your soul and make the world a little better with sparks of encouragement. Let’s make the world a better place, one person at a time beginning with #1! 😉

 

Good morning, Kittens and Dawgs! Another year has slipped through our fingers. The holidays are now over. I don’t know if I should be happy or sad. I admit I love all things Christmas, especially the mewsic but I know not everyone shares these feelings. “What?”, you say. I know I can’t believe it, either.

Anywho, it’s time to get back to normal. I’m glad you decided to join me today for Monday’s Mewsic Moves Me. It’s always fabulous to see you! Are you ready to get into the groove?  This week’s theme is “freebie” pick, so I’m continuing with my “#1 One-Hit Wonders” series with these six songs from 1975 – ’76.

 

  1. “Lovin’ You” (1975) recorded by American singer Minnie Riperton hit #1 in April . I found these factoids from Wikipedia interesting. “Lovin’ You” is the fourth single from the album Perfect Angel (1974).  As with the rest of the album, Stevie Wonder played keyboard backing (credited as “El Toro Negro”, Spanish for the black bull, as Wonder is a Taurus). According to the liner notes from Riperton’s compilation CD Petals, the melody for “Lovin’ You” was created to be a distraction for her baby daughter, Maya Rudolph, so that Minnie and her husband Richard could hang out. Maya was in the studio with her mother on recording day and Riperton can be heard singing her daughter’s name at the end, but only in the unedited or album version. The song fades out early in the radio edit because the disc jockeys felt that the repeated “Maya” was being overdone and that it would be misunderstood as a Mayan chant. Sadly, Ripteron died at a young age from Breast Cancer in 1979, she was only 31.
  2. “The Hustle” (1975) inspired by the dance was written and recorded by Van McCoy. This pop instrumental sensation hit the top of the charts (Billboard Hot 100 & Hot Soul Singles) as well as revitalizing couple dancing which seemed doomed by the early 70s.  McCoy died in 1979 from a heart attack. He was only 39.
  3. “Afternoon Delight” (1976) Starland Vocal Band. I was only 14 years old when this one-hit wonder topped the charts and I didn’t need any diagrams or talks on the meaning behind this song. I found the back story on this song interesting at Wikipedia. The title came from the happy hour menu at Clyde’s restaurant in Georgetown, Washington, D.C. where Bill Danoff was eating with fellow band member Margot Chapman while his then-wife Taffy Danoff was undergoing surgery for cervical cancer. Danoff enjoyed writing the song and downplayed the somewhat controversial lyrics, saying, “I didn’t want to write an all-out sex song … I just wanted to write something that was fun and hinted at sex.” Coincidentally, it is listed as the 20th sexiest song of all time.
  4. “Disco Duck” (1976) written and recorded by radio personality Rick Dees. It took Dees one day to write his song inspired by the 60s unusual dance tune, The Duck, but finding someone to perform the song proved a challenge but three months later pulled it off with an orchestral disco style with a Donald Duck-like vocals of Ken Pruitt. The story of the song focuses on a man at a party who can’t resist the urge to get up and dance like a duck. When the music stops, he sits down and when it starts again he does it again but when he gets up to dance he notices everyone is mimicking his moves. This probably is my most memorable disco song and it was so fun to dance to!
  5. “Play That Funky Music” (1976) by Wild Cherry hit the top of the leader board in September. The month DH and I began our courtship. I learned this tidbit about the band from Songfacts…”Wild Cherry was a hard rock band. They had a regular gig at the 2001 Club, and with disco big at the time, their sound didn’t go over well. After one show, a black audience member shouted, “Play some funky music, white boy.” Parissi decided they should, and wrote down the phrase on a bar order pad. They recorded it in Cleveland with a disco sound: drum and bass mixed way up front. The lyrics concerned the band, but Parissi insisted on keeping them.”
  6. “A Fifth of Beethoven” (1976) by Walter Murphy and the Big Apple Band is an adaption of Beethoven 5th Symphony as you may know but did you know this about Murphy….He was an orchestral leader who studied both classical and jazz music piano at the Manhattan School of Music. At one time he was the arranger for Doc Severinsen and The Tonight Show orchestra. He played nearly every instrument on this song but forced to credit it to an imaginary ensemble. It hit #1 in October of ’76. Source credit: Songfacts

 

Which song selection is your favorite?

Do you have any fond memories to go with any of these tunes?

What mewsic moves you?

 

 

In last week’s New Year’s Song Parodies BoTB Showdown. I used two big hit tunes remixed to make you laugh with Hella Cravings set to Adele’s “Hello” and All About That Change with Meghan Trainer & James Cordon set to “All About That Bass”.

After giving close consideration to both parodies, I decided to go with “Hella Cravings”. The clever lyrics of ones love/hate relationship to food/exercise is spot on and so hilarious. I think we all can relate to this at one point.  I know I need to get back into the exercise groove now that the holidays are over and I definitely need to cut back…wayback on my diet.  Anywho, the BoTBs winner is Dustin & Genevieve with their Adele parody “Hella Cravings”

I’m gonna leave you with another parody that works with my New Year’s theme by Dustin & Genevieve. My next battle showdown scheduled post is the 15th, so mark your calendar and join me in the fun. 😉

 

The fun doesn’t stop, I’ll be back tomorrow with Cathy Chats!

Thursday2Q: Old/New Year

Taylor Davis is young violinist I stumbled upon during a recent BoTB showdown. I liked her style and found some of her original songs on YouTube.

Howdy, Kittens & Dawgs! How’s the new year going for ya so far? All is well here but then it’s too early to say for sure. Anywho, I’m trying to get back to some of my blogging basics in which I did a lot of Q&A prompts.  Years ago, I co-hosted Thursday Two Questions with another blogger. It was a great way to start conversation while learning new things about one another. The object is to either use questions posed here or to create your own (if you choose to come up with your own then please respond to mine in comments for others to get to know you better).

1. Name one thing about 2017 that you’re glad to say goodbye to? I’ll state the obvious, DH’s eye problem.  I hope that is far, far behind us and that only things will only improve.

2. Tell me one thing that has you excited about the new year? Other than the getting the other two surgeries out-of-the-way for DH’s eye which we hope will fix him right up then the one thing that really has me excited is the prospect of moving into a new home. This is something I’ve wanted for years and we’re committed to trying to see this dream turn into a reality. *fingers crossed*

 

I hope you enjoyed my little Q&A session. Eventually, I hope to include other Thursday hop connections. If you visit my Daily Blog Hop page you’ll find a few listed. Some of which I participated in last year but my timing was off and I couldn’t latch on to them properly. I hope to change that this year. Wish me luck! I invite you to stroll back over tomorrow for some giggles and a whole lot more of Friday Fun Stuff!  X💋X💋, Cathy
