What does it mean to me?

Morning everyone! So i read a post that has been stuck in my brain for a few days.  It askes “what is your blog really about?” And “How much time did you spend on you About page?” (Here is the original post: https://wp.me/p5oeKw-4c )

So, i went back and read my “About” page. I think i did a pretty good job explaining why i started this blog and my interrests. But I’d like to add this visual, if you will.

Have you seen the “Titanic” movie? If so, you’ll know what i mean when i say, Rose and Jack inspired me. You see, in the movie Jack encourages Rose to “Do” all those things she is curious about. In the begining of the movie Rose is 100+ years old and the story is told by her. What i noticed was she DID all those things she and Jack talked about.

So back to this blog.  Of course i want this blog to be successful and if you read up on how to do that, most advice says to pick one subject. I tried that, but in short i just didnt like that.  I have many interrests, like Rose, and i want to talk about all of them. I did identify a particular interrest that not much is written about but that doesn’t get many readers. 

So what I’ve learned thus far is the common denominator in all my interrests is Me. My passion, experiences and thoughts. I love Books, riding my motorcycle, crocheting, our grandchildren, shopping and a host of other things.

I am totally open to suggestions and would love to hear your thoughts.

Music CD Review by Dixie 

Keith Urbans newest album “Ripcord”

When was the last time you purchased music much less an actual CD?

I just bought this CD and not only is it fantastic, but I’d forgotten just how nice it is to pick what song you wanted to listen to. What a concept, right? I mean sure, you can buy the “premium” plan for any of the music apps these days. But buy the CD and pop it in, its a 1 time expense!

So i am out doing a little Christmas shopping and i end up in the electronics department. I remember I have someone on my list that wanted an actual CD so i started looking for that isle.  Have you tried finding that isle recently? I was stunned that it wasn’t an “isle” but rather a 6′ section of bargain buys, now that, hurt me. I am a HUGE lover of all kinds of music and this hurt me because I thought I’d be able to really “look” for what i wanted. But instead, i spent 15 mins rummaging around. I did get lucky because a fella and his preteen daughter where next to me, so we shared what we were looking for and don’t cha know the young eyes found what I was looking for purely by accident. lol

Then in the spirit of Christmas i found “Ripcord” and had to buy it for myself. So I have been listening to it in the car, you know thats the best place to jam out,  and i really really like the whole album. I really haven’t sung my heart out to any song in a long time. Oh sure,  I’ve hummed or sang a little chorus here and there.  When was the last time you sang at the top of your lungs like you were 5 singing the “I Love you, you love me” Barney song? lol

The first track “Gone Tomorrow” makes you want to learn the words,  which i am trying to do, so you can belt them out while cranking up the volume! The banjo intro mixed with some Pop is a bit different but I tell you, it’s really grown on me. Not only is the message absolutely worth listening to, but it really puts you in the spirit of the message. I will say, I would LOVE to hear an acoustic version of this. ❤❤❤

On the way to work this morning, I listened (and Sang!) to the first track 6 times! The next 2 tracks “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16 & Wasted Time”, I rocked out to 2 times a piece. There is 13 songs on this albumn and NONE of them disappoint. I strongly urge you to check it out, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

If you like to read books then you’ll know what i mean when i say, “You need a copy of this” so you can touch it and look at it anytime the mood strikes you. ❤❤❤
