~Top thing you don't want to hear from Tech Support.

I began having computer problems Monday morning.
I was unable to visit or post Monday through Friday.
I was able to post my Friday Feast and visit a few of the feasters.
I went to begin catching up on my regular blog reads and our server went down.


I was not able to visit my dear friends.
I am very frustrated.
I hope the problem is resolved soon.
Our ISP server keeps going down and pages don’t have time to load before I get the disconnected from server flag.
I miss you all very much and hope to catch up soon.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Tribute for Kenneth, Sean, Ina, and Alex


I have my own particular sorrows, loves, delights; and you have yours. But sorrow, gladness, yearning, hope, love, belong to all of us, in all times and in all places. Music is the only means whereby we feel these emotions in their universality.
~H.A. Overstreet

Some of my favorite musicians came together to make the songs I am posting today.
I could do a post on each one individually because I enjoy their music and talent.
I posted very brief information on the performers at the end of the post.

Some of my dear friends in blogland have suffered the loss of a loved one.


Monty for the loss of her Uncle Kenneth

SophMom for the loss of Sean

Teresa for the loss of her grandmother

Hula for the loss of Alex


Please take the time to watch and listen to the music.
Turn up the volume because all of these tracks are very clear.

May God grant you many years to live,
For sure He must be knowing
The earth has angels all too few
And heaven is overflowing.
