A Normal Day - Finally

Today seemed like the first day off I've had in ages and I accomplished a lot. I cleaned my china cabinet and you can't write your name in the dust anymore. I also cleaned my silverware. I'm always looking for an easier way to do this so I Googled it and came up with a couple of methods.

I tried the tinfoil in a pan with baking soda - didn't work.

I tried toothpaste - didn't work.

I resorted to good old elbow grease with a silver cleaning cloth and it is now sparkling like new - well, almost.


This isn't mine - it's just a picture I lifted from the Web as posts without pictures are so boring.

Then I spent way too much time on You Tube listening to songs for the father/bride dance at the wedding. Since Leo is stuck in the 60s, he suggested Procol Harum's "A Whiter Shade of Pale" - that was his only suggestion. I'm not sure this is an appropriate choice however as every time he hears it, all I hear about is the summer he was 18 and working in Wasaga Beach - I don't think we want to go there! He used to really be into music but his car radio is constantly tuned to the 60s station on Cirrius. All my attempts to get him listening to music from this century have failed dismally.

Maybe one of these days I'll actually have something quilty to report - but don't hold your breath.

Hey I'm with Leo--the music from this century escapes me. I'll take the 60s any day. How about some Bob Dylan? Subterranean Homesick Blues. Okay, maybe not. How about The Wedding Song by Peter, Paul & Mary? It's a lovely song and I'll bet they've never heard it. You sound better. I'm glad.

"A Whiter Shade of Pale" brought back some very happy memories for me! Ring Dance, junior year of high school, dancing with the boy I will love forever. Makes me a little "misty" but in a very good way!

Just wondering if eBay permits you to sell [url=http://www.ticketchoice.com.au]concert tickets[/url] on-line? Do you know if you can find any restrictions depending on what country you are in?

My parents have just referred to as me and asked if i could "get rid" of their two tickets to a concert as they wont be able to make it because of another family event.

Besides asking close friends etc, i thought ebay would be a fantastic place to sell them.

But whats ebay's policy on promoting tickets? Ive heard alot about it about the news but ive forgotten what happened.

and if it matters, the concert is inside this coming month

Thanks ahead of time for your advice.
