Listen to the Rain

Listen to the pouring rain
Listen to it pour,
And with every drop of rain
You know I love you more

Let it rain all night long,
Let my love for you go strong,
As long as we're together
Who cares about the weather?


Listen to the falling rain,
Listen to it fall,
And with every drop of rain,
I can hear you call,
Call my name right out loud,
I can here above the clouds
And I'm here among the puddles,
You and I together huddle.

Listen to the falling rain,
Listen to it fall.
Rain

Fraggle Rock

Remember the kiddie show Fraggle Rock?  I remember watching it with my daughter.  I enjoyed it as much as she did.
Here are a few short clips:

I think this clip may be a little too sad for young kids.

Supermoon Lunar Eclipse 2015: Full 'Blood Moon'


Where I live it will most likely be overcast, so I will probably miss this event; such a disappointment.  I'll have to watch it on TV.


Wow!  Who knows where I'll be then?

I hope you can enjoy it.

The To-Do List, Found One I Like


I have an obsession with getting organized.  Not that I'm so organized in real life but I try.  Even with a to-do list on my PC sometimes I just have to use a pen and paper.  It's so easy and yet too easy to be very useful.  Without a more flexible system it's not easy to move items on the list or set priorities. Spending a lot of time with an eraser is not fun.

All of the to-do lists I've seen are too complicated for me to take the time to learn.  Here are two that I like and how I combined them into one to-do list.

These are free.

"Do-It-Tomorrow"


Link:
Do-It-Tomorrow

Their description:
"-- Fastest to-do entry 
-- Simple interface - just to-do and just today and tomorrow 
-- Easily check off tasks as completed or delete them altogether "

This To Do list has no priorities and is very limited.  Being limited makes it easy to use but not practical.

"Wunderlist"


Here's the link:
Wunderlist

Here's a good description:







By adding a "Today / Tomorrow" category it has the features of the "Do-It-Tomorrow" list.  When ready I just move the task from its category and put it in the "Today / Tomorrow" section.

Here's a view of part of my version:

I put in "A" and "B" category to help set priorities. 
You can add as many categories as you need.
The "Someday" category is for what I want to do but not right away.
The "Maybe" category is for what I don't even know if I want to do or not.

So far I'm happy with it.  


I found a clock for the very disorganized person who doesn't even know what day of the week it is!



Mussolini Failed to Restart the Roman Empire


Mussolini wanted Italy to become an empire, equivalent in power to the Roman Empire with himself as the emperor in charge.  He became evil and deserved to fail.

A Few Quotes






Not So Funny

"Trickle-down economics" and the "trickle-down theory"
are terms in United States politics to refer to the idea 
that tax breaks or other economic benefits
provided by government to businesses and
upper income levels will benefit poorer members of society by improving
the economy as a whole. ..
"Mr. David Stockman has said that supply-side economics was merely a cover
 for the trickle-down approach to economic policy
—what an older and less elegant generation called the horse-and-sparrow theory:
'If you feed the horse enough oats, some will pass through to the road for the sparrows.'"

Synchronicity: Lincoln & Kennedy


Maybe you've seen this list of similarities in their lives.

This seems to be more than only a coincidence but what it means is a mystery.


Coincedence: a remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances without apparent causal connection.

Synchronicity: the simultaneous occurrence of events that appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection.





Labor Day 2015


Labor Day in the United States is a holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It is a celebration of the American labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.

A Fun New Blog


 I love this blog.  It reminds me of when I was a kid and used to play with imaginary little people.  Sometimes I'd pretend to be one of them.

Once I imagined I was a tiny person flying through the air on a Dandelion seed.



Back to describing the site.  I think you'll enjoy it.  Here are a few posts:
