Page Three


It is sunny but cold and windy, not a day in which you feel like being outside. I had three loads of laundry, cooking and cleaning enough to keep me busy. I am not caught up on computer stuff from having had my three days back at work and will for sure thing shorten out my blogroll or will never catch up. I have a few cd burns in the works and am missing regular time on that. There is a welcome transition in the job as it is only three days a week for May then five beginning in June.

I had a very hard time to start a new Putfile account. A letter number authentication was required and I couldn't see anything in the box. I've seen it happen with such programs occasionally but this was persistant. I had to partly fill out the forms each time. I called my niece to see if it was a phenomena such as the ringtone that can't be heard by adults. Niece wasn't in. I know of foreground and background recognition problems (visual, spatial, and auditory) in people and knew I didn't suffer from one until now. After trying again and again numbers and letters finally appeared. I got a pop up message saying they didn't match several times though they looked the same to me. I tried a couple like that then another and I was finally let in. Whew! New Account. I'll do the side link later tonight or tomorrow. Said niece just returned my call so I'm running late. I'm expecting company.

I wanted good music to begin a new pafe and am choosing Lila Downs. Un Poco Mas is one of my favorite of her songs and Benediction and Dream is so powerfully nice. Ralph, you've been impressed each time I've featured her. You will like this, I think. This song was in the film and on the soundtrack of Frida, of which I own a copy of each. I think I've mentioned leaving the movie vowing to get to a record store the next day. Sends shivers! I've loved everything that I've heard her do and she has different styles from Mexican Cumbias to Oaxacan folk songs to jazz to English jazz. Sings like an exotic bird.

Lila Downs' voice is exquisite. Very nice selections.

She's the greatest. Not lightly, awesome. Put her name in the search to the left on this blog, to get other selections of hers.

That shot is too cool. Is that a stuffed bird? Are you messing with us?

No, a regular old robin redbreast, surveying it's domain.

She's an incredibly powerful singer. Thanks for introducing her to me.

You're very welcome, Ralph.
