Wednesday Hump Day

First of all I love birds and their colors, but obviously not a great bird watcher - I said yesterday was a red headed woodpecker and apparently it is a  Pileated Woodpecker - sorry about that.  But I can tell you he is pecking my deck. Although the rain and owl is helping.  And I got a lot of suggestions - thanks.

Okay ever hear of putting on the Ritz?  Here its done Russian Style.  "What a crazy, delightful ever changing world! Who could have thought that in 2012 young people in Moscow would put on a "flash mob" happening, dancing to an 83 year old American song written by a Russian born American-Jew (Irving Berlin) whose last name is the capital of Germany."

Okay we're heading to Emory today for a second opinion on the bilateral subdural hematomas
of Rick's - I'll report to you tomorrow.  I hope they can tell him why or how it happened - maybe not.

Here's a little something to play around with to help with hump day - do you remember any of the songs of your year?

This is neat. It's sort of a "Jukebox Time Machine" of music. Each of the years below connects to the best 20 hits of that year via a Jukebox. Click on a year, wait a few seconds, and a Jukebox will appear showing you 20 hits from that year to select from. You can play all 20 hits, or.. click on just those that you like. Enjoy the ride!

Will be waiting to hear what the 2nd opinion says. Hope it is all good news! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Debbie said...

We have always been happy with Emory so I hope you can get a good second opinion and also a protocol and wise counsel.

I just clicked to the year I got married, and the songs made me smile.

Jeanie said...

I'm glad to hear that you are going for the 2nd opinion.
The songs were fun.

Once again, I love your closing quote...

Changes in the wind said...

First of the new header gave me pause....need to think about that one.
Second...I LOVE the vidio, how I would love to be present for something like that.

Anonymous said...

Great video..those flash dance mobs must take a tremendous amount of organization.
Hope all goes well at the doctors office.

Cranberry Morning said...

Hi Sandie. Re. the jukebox, remind me never to put in my birth year again. That was scary! lol

What a fun thing though!

Cranberry Morning said...

And I meant to say that I'm glad to hear you're getting a second opinion for Rick. Let us know what you find out.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Sandie, I'll be thinking about you all today and praying for some good results for your hubby..

Love hearing all of the old songs of my younger years. Thanks!!!!

Marti said...

Hope you are able to get an answer, the unknown tends to be scary, but no matter what it is know that God is in control and He knows the answers. You and Rick are in my prayers.
Love the songs of the 50's. They had such good music back then, a far cry from what my 20 year old grandson listens to.

Sall's Country Life said...

Good luck with the second opinion! Watching the Flash Mob was a dose of good medicine for me this morning!! What a hoot to be there among them!!
Have a great day

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Hoping the second opinion is informative! Take care and love the jukebox thing! FUN! hugs, Linda

The Café Sucré Farine said...

Lynn said...

Love that website - upchucky. What a great thing!

Paula said...

You could have told me any kind of woodpecker and I wouldn't have known any better. lol Good luck with the appointment. Going to check out the year I was a freshman in high school.

TexWisGirl said...

that video gives one hope. :)

good luck today...

Shelly said...

I will be praying all goes well at Emory. And, the jukebox is totally cool!


LOVE the FlashMob. GREAT song. I am praying all goes well for you all as you go to Emory for the second opinion on the bilateral subdural hematomas. We just found out that the mass on our daughter's liver is inoperable. It is a ball of blood vessels leading to vital organs that have entwined. If they rupture it is instant death. Not much else to say. Take care.

barbara l. hale said...

Hoping for the best with the second opinion. Loved the uplifting! And the jukebox thing is cool. Although I was not to happy to see that the Yankees won the World Series the year I was born.

val's alentejo said...

Hi Sandie,
Hoping all the exams will be ok.! wait to hear the outcome. will be in my prayers.

As always, your post is great. I think the Russians are more advanced than we are.

Thisisme. said...

Hi Sandie. Praying that you will get some good news about Rick's condition when you make your visit to Emory. That jukebox is fantastic. I went right to 1961 and 1962 and knew all of the songs. I am going to see if I can get it onto my computer!

Betty Manousos said...

good luck with the second opinion sandie. i'm thinking of you today.
sending positive thoughts and prayers your way.

Susan said...

Hi Sandie....Sending lots of prayers and positive vibes for your trip to Emory with Rick. Hope all works out well. Loved all the things on your post, especially the Russian dancing! So amazing. Susan

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Sending you positive thoughts for good news about hubby.
Hope you get a chance if you have not already to join my giveaway. Novica is sponsoring it for me.

Just Stuff From a Boomer said...

I loved the flash mob. It's difficult to move like that in cold weather. Hope your second opinion news is good too.

Jill said...

Praying, my friend.

Martha said...

Hope all went well at Emory today!

Ginny said...

I have been praying for discernment for the doctor!!! And yes, your bird is a Pileated, they have the red crest and are the biggest of the woodpeckers. It could be pecking at your deck because it is finding bugs there, maybe check for wood borers or termites?

Arkansas Patti said...

I LOVE flash mobs. There is always such joy on the dancers faces but also on those lucky enough to be near by. Looking at the faces and clothes, that could have been anywhere USA-- well maybe not Florida.
Hope tomorrow brings you some answers. Let us know.

A Quiet Corner said...

My goodness you must spend a ton of time on the computer!...Loved the songs=years!...:)JP

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

LOL! They totally skipped my year.

Fun post.

Susan :)

Susannah said...

Hope you find out what you want to know and the Doc is a good one ....and helpful.

The blast from the past was fabulous. I had a lot of fun looking up my the songs from my high school years. Going to play it for hubby soon. You never know we might be rock and rollin" tonight...right here by the computer!(We were high school sweethearts!)

Buttercup said...

It's the end of the hump day, but the Russian flash mob was still fun. Hope the news for Rick is good.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Happy Wednesday to you today, and when tomorrow comes and you and hubby go for the 2nd opinion- I hope it settles all the questions in your minds, and its a good report

Jim said...

Well, you guys are back now and it is tomorrow. I hope all went well on the second. If not don't hesitate for the third. And REMEMBER that so many of us are praying for him and for you.

I may come back for the juke box, but now I've got to get some sleep as Mrs. Jim and I are golfing (together) tomorrow.
