SORRY FOLKS< I TOOK THE SONG OFF< IT WAS BLACK HORSE AND A CHERRY TREE, I was proud of myself for getting the video on my blog, but now, I didn't want it to play everytime someone came to check me out. You can see the video on her website, I think on her myspace too.

I love this song, even though I have NO, Idea what it means, well I have some ideas, but they are not blog worthy. On KT's My space page, her profile says that she is over 100 years old, so she may have a little wisdom and insight that I do not. I need to rhapsody some of her other songs to see if I like them. I am sure I will be a big fan, after all her my space says she has 35,172 friends. WHO WOULD COOK ALL THE BRISKET FOR THAT BUNCH?

Want to check her space out yourself. Click Here.

It is worth going on her page just to see the animal crackers :)

If you find out what the song means-LET ME KNOW.

Canada Humor :)

A man in a Florida supermarket tries to buy half a head of lettuce. The very young produce assistant tells him that they sell only whole heads of lettuce. The man persists and asks to see the manager.
The boy says he will ask his manager about it. Walking into the back room, the boy said to his manager, "Some bozo wants to buy half a head of lettuce."
As he finished his sentence, he turned to find the man standing right behind him, so he added, "And this gentleman has kindly offered to buy the other half." The manager approved the deal, and the man went on his way.
Later the manager said to the boy, "I was impressed with the way you got yourself out of that situation earlier. We like people who think on their feet here. Where are you from, son?"
"Canada, sir," the boy replied.
"Well, why did you leave Canada?" the manager asked.
The boy said, "Sir, there's nothing but whores and hockey players up there."
"Really?" said the manager. "My wife is from Canada."
"Wow!" replied the boy, "Who'd she play for?"

I must truly be a wine rookie, because I had no idea that Merlot was on the down-slide due to a movie two years ago: "Sideways" I loved this movie, My husband didn't like it, or maybe he didn't get it. Anyway, all the movie did for me was create a stronger desire to go to California and "do the Winery Tour thing". Apparetly, according to a story today in the LA Daily news , WineLine, Pinot Noir is taking the limelight away from Merlot due to this movie. I am just here to say Merlot will always rank higher than Pinot in my book. But, I am also proud that my favorite vine juice is tough enough to FIGHT BACK!! GO MERLOT !! SISH, BOOM, BAH!

From the website: Did you know how important clay in a merlot vineyard’s soil is? Did you realize that the wine Miles (in Sideways) hoarded and opened on his birthday was a ’61 Cheval Blanc, a 50/50 cepage of Merlot and Cabernet Franc? These are just a taste of the connoisseurship of Merlot the seminar.

Well we made it home from TMS in one piece for the 10th year in a row. The coolest part of the weekend-we have still seen a new winner every race. THE WEATHER WAS GREAT!!! THE BEER STAYED COLD! We met our neighbors and we all played washers until we could play washers anymore. The fajitas and sausage rocked. The worst part of the race was IROC night. Tony Stewart won, YUCK, and I lost my $1 bet on Kinnser, he at least went flying thru the air for some entertainment, I just hope he is OK:) I really wanted Texas Terry to pull the first repeat win, or for Gordon or Johnson to cross that line first. Well, maybe next year.

So, I am officially not in the demographics of the WestleMANIA culture. According to an article, I googled I discovered that that is good, because I am not a 12-30 year old MALE. I attended a viewing of WestleMANIA 22 last Sunday. I was intrigued to watch the entire night because, Of course, we turned it into a wager game. The fact that I finished last put the final stamp on the fact that I am not a wrestling kind of girl. I should have picked the grossest scariest guys, but the BOGEYMAN is yucky, and why would I cheer for the guy that has been stalking me from the depths of "under the bed" for years. I got a couple of the girl fights wrong, because I always picked the BLONDE, I am biased. I hate to admit they were more fun to watch, mostly because there was no barbed wire, Thumb tacks, worms, or sledgehammers. I like the folks that actually wrestled, with-out the hype. Oh, yeah and the girls didn't use a coffin! EHHHWWW! I know I sound a little "princess" right now, but I am still on a fantasy baseball team, and of course two Fantasy football teams. I learned I have three responses to every BIG MOVE in Wrestling. YUCK! OUCH! and THAT WAS SOOOO FAKE. I am glad, However, that John Cena won, because he is the sexiest one. He also has superhuman abilities, remember two weeks ago, he got sledgehammered, and yet no swelling or scars when he was a judge for Nashville Star. It has been 20 years since I watched a whole wrestling anything, yes, Hulk Hogan, in person at the North Dakota State Fair, we will see how many years it takes until the next time. I will place my money on John Cena, if it is in the immediate future, Did I mention that he is sexy!
