    Thanks for the wonderful music, JustChecking!

    BTW, You Raise Me Up wouldn't open -- blocked -- but the other last three opened. I really like Celine and Josh--they're great together too.

    You're welcome, Daylight. Thanks for letting me know about the blocked Josh's one. I wonder how many other people can't see and listen to it. Funny, I can see and listen to it.

    The other day I couldn't access to the disco one on the Energy Boosters thread, but I could access it yesterday. I don't know what's going on.

    It's blocked in my country on copyright grounds. The last Josh one is too. But it's okay. I can hear it in my head.

    I don't think the 'blocking' among countries is good. Don't know why they are doing it.

    Okay, Miss Ontario, I was right. I love Canada. Been there numerous times as I was growing up near Buffalo. I love Toronto; it's just so cool. I've been to Vancouver too--that is such a great place! Missed getting to Montreal--but I still have time. Always wanted to go there and try my five years of French.

    Daylight, sometimes, being mysterious is good. Glad you enjoyed your visits to Canada. I visited U.S. some years ago. There are so much to explore and see in the U.S. Too bad I won't be going anywhere for the next X number of years.

    Yes, I had to read Alice Munro's short stories for school purposes. Does it sound bad?

    Have you read The Shack, http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1812457.The_Shack, Daylight? It's an emotional-packed fiction. One minute, crying; the next, laughing... I used to read a lot when I was a kid. I really enjoyed reading The Shack as an adult.

    You know, I am a constant reader (used to be anyways) and had a ton of good books BBB (before bed bugs). I even started keeping a journal of what I'd read so I wouldn't forget. Alas, I got rid of all my fiction books (all of Alice Munro's too) and most of my nonfiction too--and now, I have the rest of my books in zip locks even tho the house has been heat treated.

    I've had a horrible, terrible YEAR, not day, and I have not done much reading at all. I do remember whizzing through The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo a couple years ago, and I like Barbara Kingslover a lot (The Poisonwood Bible). I love all the classics and downloaded the complete works of George Elliott on my Kindle several years ago. For quick reads, I usually go for mysteries or detective series. Martha Grimes is fun and of course Janet Evanovich. I'll try to think of some good ones for you.

    The same for me. I really like Carrie Newcomer's powerful voice and vocal range. Thanks, NoBugs!

    I am glad you're enjoying the songs here, BBaretheD123.

    Too bad for you and me, Daylight. While you got rid of some of your books, I did the same but completely. I haven't read any novels for a long while. So, don't think too hard on the reading list unless you want to share with other people on the forum. Janet Evanovich sounds familiar. I might have read at least one of her novels.

    I watched The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo movies. They were good. Haven't read the books. However, I enjoyed the book version of The Hunger Games more than the movie (I saw the first movie only but read all 3 books).

    So sorry you've had a terrible year, Daylight. I've been on a tight rope for a long time now. Life is like a test, lessons to learn... If we had experienced setbacks before, we can build onto them. If this is new to some people, then it's time for you to pull all you learned together and apply to your current situation. In general, I think we can benefit from learning how other people bounced back from obstacles. Also, we need to ready ourselves to the best possible condition in order to fight the battles. Consider thinking of how we can make the situation better with limited resources and how we can help other people.

    JustChecking,

    Thank you for your understanding and care. It was a traumatic and stressful time, to be sure. I probably got rid of 90% of my books and 80% of my clothes. I retired and we moved to a smaller house. I don't want to go into details, but it was pretty bad. Crying on the inside and feeling hopeless. But I survived and feel a lot stronger to finish the fight. It was so hard to find a company to actually help us and not just want to take the money and run. I think that's a big part of how we react to this situation. If we feel like we can trust someone to do a job and be there to see it through, we wouldn't get so down and out.

    You, along with others like Nobugsonme and Butterfly and Endless, TAOT, BBATD123, MRE, and so many others I can't name at this second, have really done an outstanding job at supporting us and lifting us up. Kudos to you all!!!

    Now, you are still being that kind and conscientious person by suggesting we do something to help others.

    Great idea! I would love to help anyone who needs support. I 'll work on it. Keep me posted with any details and I'll do the same. Thanks for your good thoughts!!

    Huh, Daylight? You've already been helping people. I couldn't have worded better than you in the other thread with "Keep thinking positive...figure out a plan...work on your goal...feel like a warrior...prayers and thoughts...don't give up!" This is only one of the many examples. You did really well.

    I was trying to remind all of us that it is better to be proactive than feeling stuck whenever we are down. When we help others, we in turn help ourselves. Don't drill on me, me, me all the times. It could be a project for you to explore if needed. I can't tell you what to do.

    This is a really nice thread. Daylight, I'm sorry you had a bad year. Thank you for the kind words. I'm more of a "teaser", but you and a lot of others provide a very genuine sense of wanting to help...it's really meaningful. Thank you.

    Daylight, you and JustChecking -- and everyone else who participates in the forums -- you're doing a good job already of helping others! Thanks for your contributions.

    Glad you liked the Carrie Newcomer! She's great.

    The clip is from a live performance but the studio album Everything is Everywhere is fantastic and features (as does the clip above and the last one below) some of the "rock stars" of South Asian classical music.

    You're welcome and thank you, ladies!

    Much earlier, after watching a movie that had East Indian music, I wanted to find some but couldn't. Shortly after, I forgot all about it. Thanks for sharing these music, NoBugs!

    Daylight, I wonder if you are like me can’t easily have an outward cry other than from reading books or watching movies on tragic stories, etc. That’s a lot of books and clothes you got rid of. Sigh! I could see how bad the situation was. Hiring a pest control company in North America is expensive. Yeah, it’s like throwing a big chunk of your money on the gambling table sometimes. Was it the 3rd pest control company that seems to be promising? Good for you. Came out stronger, Daylight. God bless!

    With so many tragic things happening, sometimes out of our control, all I could think of is to aim my eyesight on God (or a higher being for others) while walking on a tight rope to the finish line.

    Thank you, JustChecking, for another wonderful thread!! And thank you to all who have shared all the awesome music videos!!

    JustChecking,

    One of my all time favorite songs to sing at church is "Shout to the Lord". It always brings such peace to my soul.

    Hi on this terrific Thursday!

    At school on the morning announcements, they always preface the day of the week with a motivating adjective (marvelous Monday, etc.) They'd usually stick with the regulars, but now and then switch up.

    I just got back from the hair salon (as it is now known as, not the "beauty parlor" as I called it one day while there and was quietly corrected by my stylist, not beautician. (LOL) It is a monthly visit and it does help me relax and unwind. I still wash my hair every day with very very hot water though just to be extra careful. I have dry hair and never washed it more than twice a week in the days before bed bugs (BBB). Never used to blow dry it either, but now wouldn't think of skipping that part. I've developed an affinity for heat.

    So, yes, JustChecking, I am going to look for The Shack on Amazon to download on Kindle. And I also love "Shout to the Lord". I come from a hymn loving church background, and they're ingrained in me.

    Nobugs, I am very happy to be discovering the music of Carrie Newcomer. Everything is Everywhere is fantastic! Thanks so much for posting it! She kind of reminds me of one of my favorites from the old days--Joni Mitchell.

    I feel like I'm off topic here because I haven't posted any music. American Idol is on TV at the moment tho--recorded from last night--there are some good singers on this one! And Harry Connick Jr. is one of the judges--he's good too.

    Me, too!! I grew up singing hymns from the "red back hymnal" as we called it. I love all the newer music we now sing in church, but I miss those days of the hymnal music.

    Hi Daylight,

    Oh my goodness!!! I was so excited to find this video on Youtube!!! I just googled "red back hymnal" and came up with this video. I went to Ole Miss, but many of the youths that I went to church with went to Lee University in Tennessee and a couple of them were members of the Voices of Lee.....although many, many years ago....lol. I am just thrilled to have found this video and will be spending my afternoon listening to all the wonderful music!!

    Enjoy the video

    When someone first called it, "Happy Thursday", I didn't get it. I later wondered if it meant it makes her happy because the next day is Friday. Or maybe it's because of the school a.m. announcement. Now that you are all relax and feel like stepping out of a fashion magazine, it sure is a terrific Thursday, Daylight.

    Since the author of The Shack, William Paul Young, is not a writer pro, don't expect it to be the same level as the works of 'writers'. It's imaginative and thought-provoking to me. It covers various questions and answers of eternity and related issues. This bestseller novel is controversial to some.

    Don't worry about off topics. One can't get too far from here.

    My church life doesn't last long. One sibling still goes to church. The others, no. Even the stats have indicated there's a drop in church attendance. Various reasons, I bet. Regardless, I view it as one's personal experience with God (or higher beings for others) rather than confining to a structure. However, if one is a church goer, etc., all is well, too.

    Butterfly, thanks for your contribution! I'll get back to you later.

    Welcome, BD, and thanks for your contribution! I noticed that you have a new screen icon. Cool.

    To be honest, ever since one of my siblings told me not to listen to the Top 20 or 40 songs, etc., in my early years because of some of the lyrics, I must have developed selective hearing. I might not able to pick out the lyrics on some videos but could listen to the music and see the expressions. They sure raise my heart beats and made me giggle.

    My church life doesn't last long. . . . Even the stats have indicated there's a drop in church attendance. Various reasons, I bet. Regardless, I view it as one's personal experience with God (or higher beings for others) rather than confining to a structure.

    Anyone ever see the movie Stigmata . . . I loved that movie and the message I took away from it was that God is everywhere and you don't have to worship Him in a particular building you can worship Him anywhere. Not sure if that was the message I was supposed to get but that's the message I got.

    JustChecking,

    Tomorrow is fabulous Friday!! (the weekend eve)!

    I haven't been to my church since I started realizing I might contaminate the pews and people. A lot of huggers there! We got a new pastor not long before my ordeal began. I called to talk with him and he was very sorry about it but understood when I said I was worried about coming. He said he always worries about the possibility of getting them on trips too. Needless to say, I really do miss church (Lutheran). But I am becoming a huge fan of the Methodist service on TV on Sunday, along with a few other programs I catch. I also read The Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer and it helped me a lot. My neighbor gave it to me--I'd never heard of it or the author before. So, I am alone here on Sundays til 2:30 when husband returns from working at golf course pro shop. I can sing my lungs out all by myself!

    Butterfly,

    Thanks for the wonderful music video! I never heard of the red back hymnal, but I think it's fantastic!! I'll be listening to it on Sunday morning and throughout the week too!!!

    I so agree!! I don't think it matters what religion one chooses to practice, if we attend church on a regular schedule, or only at Christmas and Easter, or not at all. It's our hearts and our relationship with God (or Higher Power) that will matter at the end of this life.

    I attend church because of the closeness that I feel when I am worshiping God in his house, but it's not the same for everyone.....and that's ok. Some feel just as close when praying beside a garbage can (ok, that came from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ~ love Kim!!), or just standing wherever they may be and having a quiet moment.

    I didn't ever go as regularly as I should have. I wish I had been better about it, but I agree that it's not necessary to be in a certain building to worship God and find spiritual fulfillment.
    The most essential aspect of religion to me is one's relationship with God, and I think the ten commandments are the path to follow.

    Churches have always been powerful and beautiful to me, though, and I love being in them.

    I still wash my hair every day with very very hot water though just to be extra careful. I have dry hair and never washed it more than twice a week in the days before bed bugs (BBB).

    Does the very, very hot water make your scalp dry and itchy, Daylight? I forgot to mention about your creativity of using the acronym, BBB. I often think of Better Business Bureau when I see the triple B’s.

    I feel like I'm off topic here because I haven't posted any music. American Idol is on TV at the moment ..."

    No, you’re not, Daylight. The top 8 American Idol actually sang Shout to the Lord in April 2008. I happened to see that while searching for hymns. I used to watch American Idol a very long time ago.

    Butterfly wrote,

    Oh my goodness!!! I was so excited to find this video on Youtube!!! I just googled "red back hymnal" and came up with this video.

    Thanks for sharing the upbeat hymns and MercyMe simple rule song, Butterfly! I like the hymn around 21 min. lol…I used to be a page flipping challenge among the flipping of the agenda/announcement inserts, hymn book(s), and Bible. Then, at another church, they didn’t have hymn book but used the PowerPoint projector. One less thing to flip.

    Not me, but I looked to see what it’s about. Are you talking about the 1999 one, Abs? If so, that’s a horror drama movie. I am surprised you’re not scared watching it.

    Lucky you, Daylight! I worry my neighbors will hear me. Lol

    Yup. The Bible is God’s words to Christians.

    This soooo made me giggle!! I would fit right in at Daylight's church.....I'm a hugger. The poor people who meet me always get a hug. Apparently, I have issues with realizing other's personal space.....

    On a positive note..... at least I don't do the air kiss, too!!

    That's the one with Patricia Arquette . . . but YIKES . . . I wouldn't have described it as a "horror" movie! I hate horror movies!! But I did like Stigmata . . . and it IS very, ummmm, "suspenseful" in certain places! . . . but I wouldn't have called it a "horror" movie, although it is classified as one!

    Sometimes I like to listen to songs like "You're Only Human" by Billy Joel when going through tough times. It's so easy to fall into the trap (especially when battling bed bugs, I think) of feeling like you have to do everything perfectly. It's nice to be reminded that it's okay to be human, and also I like the lyric "Don't forget your second wind ..."

    I have heard that Billy Joel tried to commit suicide as a very young man, and he later wrote this song as an anti-suicide message for teens and others. I think the scary opening scene is supposed to kind of shock suicidal people into realizing how awful it could be for their loved ones, if they did actually follow through on their plans. And then the video goes on to show that life can still be good, in spite of how bad you might be feeling right now.

    When you're looking at the YouTube page, instead of clicking the "share" button, copy the URL (web address) at the top of your browser window. It will have the word "watch" in it somewhere. This should embed using a plugin we have installed here.

    It's tricky if you're on a phone's YouTube app, because they don't display the same URLs (web addresses), but it should work on a web browser. I fixed the post above.

    LOL.....mine, too!! They get so embarrassed when I dance around and clap my hands. They always ask me to stop because their friends might see me. See me???? I'm in my own house!!

    It must be tough to be a tween and a teenager with a mom who might embarrass them though the front windows....

    BTW, I love Burl Ives, too. I had never heard of "The Ugly Bug Ball" before. Too cute!!

    LOL.... I would imagine I could close all the blinds and curtains in our home and they would still be embarrassed!! Silly kids.

    I remember that age..... When I was embarrassed to even be seen with my Mom and would ask her to drop me off at school from a "safe" distance. Like I had somehow "magically" transported myself from my home to school.
