Take it Easy

Tomorrow, Friday is the Summer Solstice and some of you may be embarking on a road trip in the coming weeks and if so be sure to take it easy. One of my fellow bloggers is hitting the road and I wish I were doing the same but no time and money--for freaking gas! I told my friend to be sure and throw some good tunes in the car for the road as that's what I do whenever I hit the road. So what tunes would you/do you throw into the car on a road trip? Mine would include a few of these:

1. Anything by Ottmar Liebert but probably Opium and The Scent of Light
2. Eagles - Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975
3. Stephen Duros-Thira
4. Mana-Suenos Liquidos
5. Santana's Greatest Hits
6. Mary Chapin-Carpenter, Time*Sex*Love
7. George Strait- Somewhere Down in Texas
8. Tish Hinojosa- Frontejas
9. Bruce Springsteen- Born to Run
10. U2- 18 Singles

There would be others but I these would be my top 10. So go on and take it to the limit. Happy Summer Solstice!

I was saddened today by the death of Tim Russert. I was a big fan of his and politics will never be the same without his commentaries. Such a loss for his family and especially his son and father who will have to cope with his death especially on this Father's day weekend. I know when I see my dad, I will give him an extra big hug.

Friday Funnies...

She's sitting at the table with her gourmet coffee.
Her son is on the cover of the Wheaties box.
Her daughter is on the cover of Business Week.
Her boyfriend is on the cover of Playgirl.
And her husband is on the back of the milk carton.

Keep reading-they get better!!!

'Cash, check or charge?' I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase.
As she fumbled for her wallet, I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse.
'So, do you always carry your TV remote?' I asked.
'No,' she replied, 'but my husband refused to come shopping with me,
and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally.'

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument and
neither of them wanted to concede their position.
As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs,
the husband asked sarcastically, 'Relatives of yours?'
'Yep,' the wife replied, 'in-laws.'

A man said to his wife one day, 'I don't know how you can be
so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time.
'The wife responded, 'Allow me to explain.
God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me;
God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!

God may have created man before woman, but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece
