Hell YES!

Up until THIS POINT, I’ve been holding my breath, awaiting  the news.

Now I’m MORE THAN just a little bit  happy to tell my fellow “Maddicts”, seasons FIVE & SIX have been secured.

It’s officially-OFFICIAL.

And not a moment too soon.

I’m suffering (in a BIG-big way) from Hamm withdrawals.

Check it out!


“the Man’s Man”

I gather things. It’s how I’m wired.

Some have told me it is not “normal”.

It’s perfectly normal for me.

I also rearrange things.

It’s like getting new stuff without having to drop any dimes.

I’m sure there’s something abnormal about that too but I must learn to accept who I am.


This is an assemblage of “stuff” that serves no purpose other than me liking to look at it.
Yep, it’s that simple.

Slacker radio doesn’t slack.

I HEART, with a capital H-E-A-R-T, Slacker radio!

It’s the finest of the fine & if you like music, it can alter your life.  I promise.

In a nutshell,  Slacker is an interactive Internet radio service. Listeners can access the service on the web, mobile apps on many different smartphones and on the Slacker Personal Radio Players.  I opted for the premium subscription which gives you unlimited skips & other perks.  You simply search by song or by artist for the type of music you feel like spinning at that time and WHAM…it comes streaming out of your device.  Most of the time mine is streaming from my Droid X.  And I FULLY dig it.  I can play it through my home stereo system, my car audio, my computer or any number of little mp3 speaker systems that are out there.

At this time, I’m just waning over an on going love affair with the ‘Belle & Sebastian‘ station.  I channel the happiness of MANY a happy hour when I listen to the Housemartins (station) and in the wee hours of the morning I find the Booker T station makes me move my booty….as in getting ready for work quicker, not as in dancing around the bathroom ‘move my booty’.

GO HERE and check it out for yourself.

Or you can simply take my word for it. I am an expert. At what, I’m not sure but I do know for FACT, this radio is THE RADIO of ALL RADIOS.


p.s.—I am not a fan of this pink mp3 speaker thing…it’s all I could find in a pinch. BUT it will soon be replaced…it is NOT Slacker Radio worthy.  But it is discrete in size and for a chick getting ready in the morning, counter space is PRIME real estate.

I dig this.

There’s a feature section in Elle Decor magazine known as “12 things (insert name here) can’t live without”.

In September’s issue, John Robshaw, a “textile guru” can’t live without his “Yoga chart”.


Isn’t that a bit over-the-top-dramatic?  I don’t personally know Mr. Robshaw but even IF he is a complete drama queen, I think not being able to live without his yoga chart is a bit much.

I don’t intend this to sound “snide” because I’m not against having things in your life you completely dig.  I have many things that make me delightfully happy.  It’s just that I won’t die without them.

Because of these ‘things I dig’, I’ve decided to start a new featured category here in my blog world.  I’m going to call it (you guessed it) “Stuff I dig”.  Yes, it sounds pretty stupid  but  it’s not dramatic.  And yes, I’m pretty certain someplace, someone will offer some sort of snide commentary about MY CHOICE of title but I’m ok with that.

The featured items will be ALL OVER THE BOARD & in every direction.

From shaving cream to lamps and everywhere in between.  So consider yourself forewarned!



Music ROCKS my world & a good ANY TIME selection for me is my Loretta Lynn-box set.  Not a bad track in the set.   Tune after tune  is a honky-tonkin’  WINNER.  I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again, nothing can keep you down when you are listening to the track “Fist City”.  I never get tired of that tune.
