Marvelous Music Monday with The Carpenters August 10, 2012

Sorry I missed all of you last week.  But I am back up and running, at least for now.  I am on my nine year old XP computer that has a tendency to restart whenever it likes.  My good computer needs a new motherboard, and I am going to check on that this week.

For today, the theme of Monday's Music Moves Me is "Songs we listened to in high school."  My favorite music in high school was Chopin, but for today, I chose The Carpenters.  I used to listen to their old albums when we went up to our cabin at Green Valley Lake near Big Bear, California.

We have a 30% chance of more thunderstorms today, and it is Monday, so....

  1. First off, I heard you're sick. So, I hope you're feeling better soon. Isn't it something how an old computer can save your bacon? After our desktop crashed, it was our old Macbook, which kept me connected to the outside world. lol We're still piecing things together with our desktop, but I"m not gonna sweat it. I'm just dancing and enjoying dancing with friends like you on Monday's Music Moves Me. Saying a prayer for you, my friend!

    1. PS: I forgot to mention, The Carpenters were one of my favorite groups when I was a teenager, too. Great choice!

  2. Great choices, Danielle! Glad to see you back, even if you are limping along on a 9 yr old motherboards are a pain, aren't they? Hope you didn't lose too much of your important stuff. And I hope you're feeling better, too!! :)
