We look for places to dance while on vacation.  That’s part of the fun.   In the Orlando area are multiple Salsa Heat dance studios.  The nice thing about socials at a dance studio is dance is the main attraction.  Folks come to get their learn, teach, and apply their dance techniques and enjoy it at the same time.

..Save My Soul

Save my soul

Photography by Margo E. Downing-Faircloth

On the way back home for a vacation in Florida, I spotted a couple of billboards in a Bible Belt state, South Carolina.

The term “Bible Belt” is a colloquialism used primarily by outsiders to describe a number of areas, especially in the Southern US, where religion, specifically Christianity, is given greater importance in daily life than is typical in other areas of the country. There is no universal definition of the “Bible Belt“. — according to quora.com

I have sinned.  Whether or not I’ll be forgiven may be addressed in another blog post.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

February 1st, 2019

This storm blanketed our area today. I have a little pocket camera which is awful for stills but is quite handy with simple video.   Knowing this, I chose to shoot video snippets of our first significant snow storm.

After getting home I realized that my radio was blaring the local Spanish station.  Yeah, I’m still trying to learn a few phrases in “Es-span-yole” 🙂   To have some sort of audio continuity I thought about some music which spoke of cold.  The first thing which popped into my mind was a song called Baby It’s Cold Outside.   Amazon.com is my place to go for MP3 files.  After paying $1.29, the file was downloaded to my linux box. It’s my music, and I don’t need it up on the “cloud”(somebody else’s computer)  But that’s another blog discussion.

  1. The classic winter tune “Baby It’s Cold Outside” has been criticized by some for having lyrics they say equal sexual harassment, but the song’s critics may not realize its background as a duet sung by a husband and wife. Broadway songwriter Frank Loesser wrote “Baby It’s Cold Outside …

Here are the full lyrics to the song:

I really can’t stay (Baby it’s cold outside)
I gotta go away (Baby it’s cold outside)
This evening has been (Been hoping that you’d dropped in)
So very nice (I’ll hold your hands they’re just like ice)
My mother will start to worry (Beautiful what’s your hurry?)
My father will be pacing the floor (Listen to the fireplace roar)
So really I’d better scurry (Beautiful please don’t hurry)
Well maybe just a half a drink more (I’ll put some records on while I pour)
The neighbors might think (Baby it’s bad out there)
Say what’s in this drink? (No cabs to be had out there)
I wish I knew how (Your eyes are like starlight now)
To break this spell (I’ll take your hat, your hair looks swell) (Why thank you)
I ought to say no, no, no sir (Mind if move in closer?)
At least I’m gonna say that I tried (What’s the sense of hurtin’ my pride?)
I really can’t stay (Baby don’t hold out)
Baby it’s cold outside
Ah, you’re very pushy you know?
I like to think of it as opportunistic
I simply must go (Baby it’s cold outside)
The answer is no (But baby it’s cold outside)
The welcome has been (How lucky that you dropped in)
So nice and warm (Look out the window at that storm)
My sister will be suspicious (Gosh your lips look delicious!)
My brother will be there at the door (Waves upon a tropical shore)
My maiden aunt’s mind is vicious (Gosh your lips are delicious!)
Well maybe just a cigarette more (Never such a blizzard before) (And I don’t even smoke)
I’ve got to get home (Baby you’ll freeze out there)
Say lend me a coat? (It’s up to your knees out there!)
You’ve really been grand, (I feel when I touch your hand)
But don’t you see? (How can you do this thing to me?)
There’s bound to be talk tomorrow (Think of my life long sorrow!)
At least there will be plenty implied (If you caught pneumonia and died!)
I really can’t stay (Get over that old out)
Baby it’s cold
Baby it’s cold outside
Okay fine, just another drink then
That took a lot of convincing!

The Bluefish Bros

water aerobics

Photography by Margo E. Downing-Faircloth

Men left to right: Milton Brown, Ernest “Bill” Dieterich and Wayne Faircloth.  They are in a water aerobics class. The instructor, Margo, was talking to the class one day and called the women mermaids for one of the exercises . The men told her they wanted to be known as king fish.

Early on, Milton started wearing google to class for use in one of the routines where the class swims.  Then Wayne followed suite, and finally, Bill wore his pair.  So on this day when the swim part of class was about to begin, the men put on their googles and got the attention of Margo. They stated that with their googles on, they were the Bluefish Brothers.

A Foundation Is A Good Start

January 22nd, 2019

On this warm day compared to the high of yesterdays 20 degrees along side 25 MPH winds, I put my bird into the air over on Champion Dr.   According to the business news show on PBS, housing sales are down a little for various reasons.  That may also be the case in Heritage Shores.  Hopefully, the developer(s) will be able to continue selling homes.

A recently laid foundation can be seen in the lower left hand corner of above image.   So maybe, seeing a foundation is a good start to look for in continuing sales.

By the way,  the wind almost completely still when my Yuneec Thypoon Q500+ drone took to the skies. This could be the reason 30-32 degree temperatures felt so much better than yesterday.

This Is Pure Genius …

My wife made the above breakfast treats months ago.  Mr. Sometimes Procrastinates just got around to placing a picture on his blog.   It’s simply bacon and eggs.  Well, it’s  actually bacon, egg and cheese.  She started by lining a non-stick muffin pan with bacon in each cup.  I’m guessing cup is what they’re called.  It was either calling them cups or holes.  Anyway, after all are lined with bacon, the pan is place in oven for a short while.  This helps firm up the bacon and allows it to be made into “bowls.”    Out comes the pan then each is filled with a seasoned egg mixture with some cheese.  It’s back  into the oven for an appealing and delicious breakfast.   The recipe was found on geniuskitchen.com.

You can get the recipe at: Genius Kitchen

A Drive-By Shooting

It snowed today in my community.  A window on the second floor provided a decent view of the street being cleared.

Since I didn’t have to go outside this image could described as “a drive-by shooting.”
