The News Impact

Ever read a news article, like the one from the other day, when a thirty pound tumor was removed from a sixty-something year-old man, and think, hey, I wonder if that’s what’s wrong with me?

No? Just me, then?

(As an aside, I realized this could be tagged as tumor humor.)



Floofitude (catfinition) – the quality of being a cat

In use: “She wasn’t a large cat but her floofitude, demonstrated by her inquisitive manners, loud voice, and mighty hunting skills, expanded her presence and amplified her impact.”

Sunday’s Theme Music

I awoke streaming an old song, which led to another and another. My brain was like a golden oldies station, if you can respect that golden and oldie are subjective terms. How you relate to them depends upon where you reside on the age spectrum.

Among the songs streamed today:

Sly and the Family Stone, “I Want to Take You Higher” (on the Mike Douglas Show – remember it?)

The Turtles, “Happy Together”

Dobie Grey, “Drift Away”

Sly and the Family Stone, “Dance to the Music” – such a lively and imaginative song

After posting this partial list, I can see how my mind pivoted through common words, themes, and times. I finally settled on this song because its signal strength had more bars. Here is “Life Is A Rock” by Reunion from 1974. It’s a novelty song, but it’s fun to listen to the lyric’s references. Enjoy.
