Tuesday Tunes – “Libertango” by the Swingle Singers


.
I’m always intrigued by the ingenuity of human beings – having been in choirs virtually all my life, one of the things that I am in awe of is really well-done a cappella music. The Swingle Singers – while the faces/voices may change as the years go by – have consistently continued to amaze with their vocal gymnastics:

Sunday Funnies: A Warning to Women

All is Vanity (2).
Some of you may have already been warned of this…..

You’ve heard about people who have been abducted and had their kidneys removed by black-market organ thieves.

My thighs were stolen from me during the night a few years ago.. I went to sleep and woke up with someone else’s thighs. It was just that quick. The replacements had the texture of cooked oatmeal. Whose thighs were these and what happened to mine?

Happy Birthday, America!

.
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

Tuesday Tunes – “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, “Sing, Sing, Sing”

Burn The Floor - 640x384

I don’t know why, but music like this just makes me think of summer.  This is lots and lots of fun!

.

The talented group of singers/dancers is called “Burn the Floor“.  You can get a copy of their “Best Of Burn the Floor Soundtrack” on MP3, as well as DVDs of both their 2000 (“Burn The Floor“) and 2008 (“Floor Play“) shows.

Burn the Floor has in-house troupes performing shows on the Norwegian Cruise Ships “Breakaway” (sailings from Manhattan), “Getaway” (sailings from Miami), and “Epic” (sailings from Barcelona).  It might be time to take Paul up on that offer to take a cruise….. 😛

Foodie Friday – Red Lobster’s Cheddar Biscuits

Cheddar Bay Biscuits 1
.
Years ago, we used to go to Red Lobster and pig out on their Cheddar Biscuits. Unfortunately, when we had to start eating gluten-free, we had to say “Goodbye” to those yummy bites of heaven.

Thankfully, I found this recipe – all I have to do is substitute GF flour for regular, and we’re off to the races! These are a perfect accompaniment to just about any meal, but they are especially good for picnics or summer get-togethers – just plan on making an extra batch to keep at home, because there won’t be any leftovers!
