Flyleaf....I just love Lacey's voice...and this song and video.

video

*This is actually a song about God...not a boyfriend. Lacey and the band are very "Christian" like. This song is about Lacey's suicide attempt in the past and how God apparently "Saved her". Regardless, I really like lacey's voice and style...she and the band are very talented. She has got that special voice, the kind I just love...and a vulnerability about her. The band and guitarist are very very good also. I think I might actually purchase one of Flyleafs CD's when I can budget it in down the road.

Kate Bush...."Deeper Understanding"....she wrote this song in 1989....computers in our lives...ahead of her time as always.

**Turned out I had to purchase the special "discount" laptop at wal mart right away...as they only had one left in the county and I called all over and had them hold it for me while I zoomed over there and bought it! They won't have this deal again for this price! At BestBuy they were selling this same laptop for almost $500.00 through June and July until they ran out! I got mine for $298.00! Well it hurt my pocketbook but I did what I had to do, as I do my banking and important (ongoing) social security stuff online which helps me to not have to run all around town all the time to do all of this "stuff". It will help reduce my stress*.

So, yes computers are good in many ways I must admit. However, through all of the years of hearing this song of Kate Bush's it would always make me stop and ponder...and feel sad too. To think she wrote and sang this 20 years ago! That's Kate for you...always seemed to be ahead of her time.

By the way I have decided to "still' take a "well deserved vacation" (away from blogging) of more time to rest and do whats best for me right now....however I will post some of the music videos that I love and or relate to on my blog....because now that I have a great new laptop pc I can now download videos I love! So, hope you will drop by from time to time to check in and see what kind of "food for thought" video and song I have in here.

Stay calm and stay well dear friends,

Love Rhi

I'm off on a hiatus...for a while....

Well, dear friends, I'm off on a hiatus...a few months probably. I'll try and stop by and say "hi" on your blogs from time to time. This old pc I've dragged out of storage (because my laptop totally crashed) is barely able to handle the web period. It's windows 98 for heavens sake! It takes me about an hour just to get online and another hour to try to retrieve my e-mails and 2 hours (or more) to even "try" to do a post on my blog. They have a laptop at Walmart now that is running just about $300.00 and I'm going to "try" to put away a wee bit of money each month and hopefully by fall I might be able to purchase this new cheaper laptop. It's actually a pretty good deal, my friend and I have been checking it out and reading reviews of others who have purchased the compaq presario CQ60-419 laptop at wal mart and it's all mostly good reviews!

I've also been in a lot of physical pain and am just trying to push along the best I can take each day as it comes.

Will miss you all...keep your good "True and real" caring blogs up my dear blog friends.

Love and Blessings Always,

Rhi
