Fear Not Bostonians…

I will make it north… will probably just be in the Spring. (Two Times A Ladyyyy…) That means, since BLOGGER has eaten my last two posts, I have learned my lesson and am now writing everything and then re-typing or cutting and pasting. Grrrrrrr…

In preparation for my post this evening…

Books of the Day:

Slaughter-House Five – Kurt Vonnegut (Published 1969)
The Devil’s Tinderbox: Dresden 1945 (Published 2000)

Two accounts of the burning of Dresden.

Album of the Day:

War – U2 (Released 1983)

The title says it all. One of my favorite U2 albums.

Song of the Day:

Edelweiss (From the Sound of the Music Soundtrack – 1965)

People ask me about Edelweiss and I’m sorry to tell them its not a German folk song. It was written by Rodgers and Hammerstein. Edelweiss is a flower and can be read about here. Yes, I love The Sound of Music and yes, I can sing every song. Climb every mountain peeps!

Gee, I wonder if I’ve given enough hints about my post tonight….

    I love The Sound of Music and can sing every song, too. 🙂 I didn’t know that about Edelweiss, I always assumed it was a German/Austrian folk song. Learned something new today. 🙂 kim
