A good night's sleep, chocolate, the happiness and satisfaction of sharing on AgingCare forum. Does anyone have some favorite things to think about? Yes, this phrase is from the song in the movie "The sound of Music". My husband and I often resort to using movie lines and song to improve communication. We were the only two in a gathering of people who heard the background music playing. We both had the same (cassette tape/CD). A connection bringing two people together. To this day, we crack up when one uses a simple movie line to make a serious point.
SO, What is one of your favorite movie line, some of your favorite things?

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play, 
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men. 

I thought how, as the day had come, 
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along th'unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men. 

And in despair I bowed my head: 
'There is no peace on earth, ' I said 
'For hate is strong, and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.' 

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: 
'God is not dead, nor doth He sleep; 
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail, 
With peace on earth, good will to men.'

Till, ringing, singing on its way, 
The world revolved from night to day
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime, 
Of peace on earth, good will to men. 

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Frazzled: It is! And if you live in Maryland, it's best to get MARYLAND crab meat. A double batch fits well to the top of a small crock pot.

Saltines dipped in chocolate half way.
Hot crab dip - one lb. Jumbo lump crabmeat, little milk, 2 blocks 8 oz. cream cheese, a little Old Bay spice in small crock pot - can be doubled - delicious!

"Mr Ambassador you are spoiling us..."

Ferrero Rocher make me sad. Through work, I got to know the company a bit. The quality control is outstandingly good and the products' ingredients are first rate.

What's sad is that their marketing and merchandising have been so crashingly terrible that their products have become exactly what you do not give to your friends unless either you are being wittily ironic or you do in fact intend to offend them.

Everything is good from my favorite T.Joes.

Even better was STROOPWAFEL
A thin Dutch Caramel Waffle Cookie.

I collect the tins of various cookies. Not a collector type person, but I love the Swedish, Dutch, Norwegian patterns.

Cookies are ALL GONE.

So many artists sing it, and one I like is Phil Wickham.
Lyrics, "f a l l. o n. y o u r. k n e e s. ...."

Currently, for this time of year, Platatonix. For the past 2 days, I've been binge watching YouTube videos of vocal and/or singing instructors, etc... initial discovery of Platatonix and their 'Reaction' to them. I try to stick to watching the professionals in the music industry for their 'critique'.

The MaProductions is my favorite so far. They're now a Platonix fan since last year. I laugh and cry over their reactions to each song. I google their name, hit the filter to chronological the upload dates and then watch from the beginning to the current. Fascinating and a very learning experience.

happy thanksgiving to all
for thanksgiving my favorite thing is to lay around the house in my PJs all morning. than I put the turkey in and go back to laying around. I love and look forward to watching the March of the Wooden soldiers. (which i am doing right now..)
than I am looking forward to watching the movie An Affair to Remember. a really great movie.
my mom and dad passed away recently within a week or two apart. Dad and I used to sit together and watch
the movie. We both have seen it hundreds of times yet we both still cry at the ending. We would laugh at each other for crying.
My dad and Mom will be by my side all thru the movie.
I miss them so much.
than its turkey time........
