I'm going to start out with some music, but it doesn't have to be a music thread. I ask participants two things--please don't flood the thread with post after post after post. Please keep it simple, short and sweet. Thank you.

@Setanta,
Nice!

Love the Moody Blues, don't know too much about White Bird, but will now do some exploring.



My two favourite things are

a) Probably anything to do with David Attenborough, and

b) The coast, primarily the British coast.

I force fed my son on Attenborough and other wildlife documentaries from when he was a nipper, and now he's seeing it all for real. He's even more passionate about that sort of stuff than I am, which is wonderful.

I could easily live by the Coast like that beachcomber in Local Hero. Any documentary or sea related programme and I'm glued to the screen. Love it.


Attenborough (1min 24)




And a short snippet of the wonderful "Somewhere at Sea" series, featuring Timothy Spall. (1 minute)

Two of my favorite things:

Hearing the breeze move the leaves in the trees on a hot summer day.
Sailing on the ocean. No motors. No land in sight. Just the water, the wind, and the sky.

My favorite things:

1) Spending time with my family and activities with all the children I love ... the children are so delightful, even when they're naughty.

2) Learning ... and learning ... and learning some more.

3) Engaging in playful banter with my hubby ... we laugh a lot.

4) Singing ... terribly ... but nonetheless singing.

5) My cats ... gifts from heaven.

6) Remembering conversations I had with my dad ... RIP dad.

@Debra Law,
If your singing is not good enough for public performance, there's always the shower.

White Bird is the name of the song, your Lordyship. The group was called It's a Beautiful Day.

Georgiana Cavendish, the Duchess of Devonshire.

http://image.wikifoundry.com/image/1/zpkGAvLy7ZotlgPtmVkG6g34142/GW340H433

The great great granddaughter of John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough, and the great-great-great-great-aunt of Diana, Princess of Wales (her father was the first Earl Spencer), she was so lauded for her great beauty and sense of style, that when she went out in public, she was enclosed in a squad of footmen carrying staves to keep the public off of her. In her forties, one young chit of a girl taxed her as a "drab." She raised her chin, assumed her dignity, and said: "When I was your age, I was a wife, a Duchess and a toast." The last was literally true. When gentleman had finished their dinner, and the women had removed to the withdrawing room, they would fill up their glasses, stand, and drink a toast to the Duchess of Devonshire.

@Setanta,
"White Bird is the name of the song, your Lordyship."

No wonder I couldn't find anything. Senility is setting in, methinks.


Where am I?

Confine myself to the shower? Never! I have groupies, aged two and under (my superfans), who are quite moved by my rendition of "Itsy Bitsy Spider".
