LOL, seriously that was the first thing i thought of, of signing up again a couple of times, and logging is as LisaLisa, and then as AndTheCultJam. 
I can tell you were a child of the 80’s like me!

So who's gonna make an arrangement for "Lost in Emotion" in Bb  ???

Ah, I'm busted! My age is showing  ::)
My lack of age is showing too

Don't worry - YouTube is here to bring you up to date:

Expand your vocabulary, courtesy of Adam Neely:

He talks about the US national anthem and why it's so hard to sing. 

As with others who try to have successful (=people watching) YouTube channels, he will take a position that people will want to argue with.  I don't necessarily agree with his delivery of his opinions, but he does manage to make them engaging, at least for a while.  There are youtubers out there with really boring (to me) channels that have very click-baitish (to me) titles on their videos that ensnared me for a while. 

Bonus: A snippet of Stravinsky's arrangement of the SSB. 


Me?  I'll put this out there: Our Anthem should be "This Land is Your Land", but until then, I will play The Star-Spangled Banner as it is written in front of me. 

Of course, there's always "To Anacreon in Heaven" until then.

I remember the 60's quite well, and what surprises me is how the 60's have changed over the years.

Only you guys would understand the nightmare I had last night.

I went to some old house with a bunch of unsavory men. Inside the house were several glass showcases full of wonderful, rare musical instruments. I don't know what they all were. I think my imagination invented a few. All of the instruments had price stickers with prices around $200-$300 dollars. Many were double-walled metal. Some were alto or bass sized. I wasn't allowed to touch. just look.

The men said that they were going to burn the house down that afternoon and that any instruments left would be burned, too. I had no time to evaluate. I also didn't have that much money and hadn't OKed the purchase with my husband.

To give me a bit of time, they invited me into the back yard for corned beef sandwiches. The sandwich was so full of meat that it was falling out. I didn't want to go back in and make a mess, but they said it was no problem because the house was full of corned beef. When I went back in, there was about a 6" layer of corned beef everywhere, including on the cases.

Then I woke up.

But please don't let it be in any way related to any dream I might have!

I pulled the chunk of corned beef out of the freezer to thaw.  Who wants to wait all the way till St Patty’s day for corned beef and boiled dinner?
Weird dream though.  Do you even like corned beef?
And LOL Dave, i kind of did the same thing.  I started reading on my phone screen at work and i was like, wait ...  What the??? .... I must of missed something here ....  OOOoohhh, weird dream......  Urgh, now I’m hungry and all I got is tepid water and smooshed energy bar .....   :-\

I don't know that I have ever had corned beef. Maybe I have?

I'm still working on "husband", but that's just me.

Definitely an anxiety dream.  Money, passion...food.
