I'm trying to enjoy the heat. I'll want to complain about its absence soon enough.

Winter wouldn't be so bad if heat were affordable, but it isn't (at least in my experience). My work around as of two years ago is a portable electric recirculating-oil convection heater in the kitchen. As long as I wear sufficient layers and stay reasonably near a heat source (heater or computer) then I can be fairly comfortable (though my fingers tend to stiffen). Heating oil (unfortunately) is distinctly more expensive than our generally increasing cost gasoline and fuels my central heating. I just leave it off (needs repair anyway). Much as I'm unhappy with the global warming situation, at least I find the recent warmer winters more comfortable than previous.

No kidding, we're getting easy weather to deal with. Other folks are way too cool, wet, or hot. Strange weather this summer for lots of people. So glad that climate change can't possibly be a factor.

I understand TV evangelist Pat Roberts hates the "Affordable Health Care Act" (wants it "defunded" ASAP) at least as much as the medicare enjoying seniors who "struck back" during the 2010 elections (helping plenty of Republicans to ascend to State Governorship and other State offices, as well as the U.S. House of Representatives). Why? Because they were afraid it would diminish their own gov't medical coverage. Result? Heightened individual State minority marginalization and disenfranchisement, redacted availability of constitutional women's rights, and Congressional gridlock. Aren't U.S. seniors grand? What did someone say about greed and disregard for the needs of others? It's not just Republicans, big business, or the wealthy!

Seniors voted Republican in droves in 2010. It wasn't about party affiliation, it was about "defense" of Medicare -- whatever the Republicans would do in office had to be better for them than the clear threat of "Obama-care".

When the Single Payer option was ripped out of what would become "Obamacare," at its inception I knew that at least the medical insurance monsters wouldn't have their way with us. Whew, dodged that one!

Single payer was way to simple for the American mind to grasp...

What incredible lyrics!

Heavenly shades of night are falling, it's twilight time
Out of the mist your voice is calling, it's twilight time
When purple-colored curtains mark the end of day
I'll hear you, my dear, at twilight time

Deepening shadows gather splendor as day is done
Fingers of night will soon surrender the setting sun
I count the moments darling till you're here with me
Together at last at twilight time

Here, in the afterglow of day, we keep our rendezvous beneath the blue
Here in the same and sweet old way I fall in love again as I did then

Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me like days of old
Lighting the spark of love that fills me with dreams untold
Each day I pray for evening just to be with you
Together at last at twilight time

Here, in the afterglow of day, we keep our rendezvous beneath the blue
Here in the sweet and same old way I fall in love again as I did then

Deep in the dark your kiss will thrill me like days of old
Lighting the spark of love that fills me with dreams untold
Each day I pray for evening just to be with you
Together at last at twilight time
Together at last at twilight time

Another that strikes to same tone for me...

Deep Purple - Nino Tempo and April Stevens - YouTube


[Written in 1934 as a piano composition - lyrics added in 1939]

When the deep purple falls over sleepy garden walls
And the stars begin to twinkle in the night
In the mist of a memory you wander on back to me
Breathing my name with a sigh

In the still of the night once again I hold you tight
Though you're gone, your love lives on when moonlight beams
And as long as my heart will beat, sweet lover we'll always meet
Here in my deep purple dreams
Here in my deep purple dreams

When the deep purple falls over sleepy garden walls
And the stars begin to twinkle in the night
In the mist of a memory you wander back to me
Breathing my name with a sigh

In the still of the night once again I hold you tight
Though you're gone, your love lives on when moonlight beams
And as long as my heart will beat, sweet lover we'll always meet
Here in my deep purple dreams
And as long as my heart will beat, sweet lover we'll always meet
Here in my deep purple dreams

[Fade]

I remember this one just barely. Heck, I was still a whippersnapper in '63. Oops, I don't really know what a whippersnapper is.

Spent part of 1963 in a delightful Catholic boarding school in Massachusetts. That place was so great that I never smiled once while I was there. Fairly certain that they built a freeway and tore that edifice down. What a shame. NOT.

Thanks for the uplifting link. It's also nice to know that Lady Gaga has a bra gun.
