A meme, and some observations

Posting later than I was hoping; have been fighting with a nasty head cold the last few days.  One of those that isn't quite bad enough to make you really sick, but just bad enough to make you feel like curling up and grumbling.  Still have some sinus problems; I'm surprised I'm not dehydrated from the way I've been sneezing and my nose has been running almost around the clock.  I've been meaning to take some photos outside (the spring bulbs are starting up), but it's been miserable cold and windy, and my joints are going to have to take a rain check, especially since during the night we had a half a foot of snow dump on us.

Saw in the news where Davy Jones of the old Monkees died yesterday from a heart attack; he was only 66.  Where the hell did the time go?

Am I the only one who thinks Blogspot has its head up its butt?  The Turing words are difficult to read, and the new format for comments sucks, bigtime.
Hopefully they'll get their shit together soon.

I've been tagged by a meme.  I don't do memes very often, but the tagger was Zeke, from Engineering Johnson.  I met him at the Gunblogger Rendezvous last year, and quite enjoyed talking with him and listening to him tell about some of his engineering jobs around the globe.  I'm supposed to tag five other bloggers, with 200 or less followers.  I don't know if these people will be interested, but here it goes:

Dum Vivimus, Vivamus
Politics, guns, and family, with general observations on the world around us.

The Reluctant Paladin
An animal control person commenting on life in general, and does some restoring of antiques that are quite good.

Momma Mia, Mea Culpa
Meleah Rebecca tells about family, her life, and comments on life and the WTF of the world.  She has had me laughing more than once with some of her tales.  She probably has lot more than 200 followers, but I felt she deserved a mention.

Total Survivalist Libertarian Bitch Fest
Some ladies with a blog.  Their description says it best:
"We write about self-reliance, gardening, kids, politics, and whatever else we want.  We like what we like, enjoy what we do and never take shit from anybody."

Kilo India Tango
A young lady in Montana who has recently started blogging again.  Her interests are shooting, photography, camping, and life in general.

Not even going to mention the clown fight for the GOP slot; they're too busy rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

"Any favorites?"

Yeah... Dylan, Doors, M.Blues, Cream, Del Shannon, Spoonful.

All stuff from my (& your) yute.
"Sunshine" was a staple in our garage band in the 60s. Our organist was all over "Runaway", & tried to incorporate that organ sole, or a variation thereof, into every damn song we played. Got pretty ugly sometimes...

Doubletrouble: hard to do any better than the classics, isn't it? I still like them better than most of what I've seen in the past twenty years.

"Not even going to mention the clown fight for the GOP slot.." HA HA HA!

Boy, if that doesn't accurately describe it I don't know what could.

I'd have to add some ZZTop, Tom Petty, Journey, Boston and more Queen to your list :)

Hope you're feeling better soon. My remedy for a scratchy sore throat from sinus delights is 1/2 OJ and 1/2 Ginger Ale over ice. Settles things down & adds hydration.

Your background photo is magnificent,

MJ: thanks for dropping by. I listen to the groups you mention also. These were the first ten of my playlist for that day.
If you'd like to see the whole picture I have as a background, I have it at my Flickr site.

Love Queen's, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, but I never saw the music video for it. It's a good thing. lol

Forgot all about your blog until I saw your comment on mine. I missed putting it on my blogroll. I'll go do the now. Have a great evening!

As I recover from my own "head cold" (I swear this thing has been making round around my blogroll this month) I wish you a speedy recvoery.

Minimedic: seems like everyone is getting some sort of bug. Mine is pretty well over now, hope you are doing better.
