Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Soooo, how old do you have to be when you consider a song from 1980 to be a "new" one?
BONUS - Entre Nous - Rush, 1980
Entre Nous ("Between Us" in French) is the fourth track on the 1980s album Permanent Waves by progressive rock band Rush. It was also released as a single. The only live performances of the song to date occurred during the 2007 leg of the tour to promote Snakes & Arrows, an album released on May 1 of that year. It was then featured on the live album released on April 15, 2008.

|“A pivotal spiritual
attribute is that of self-mastery—the strength to place reason over
appetite. Self-mastery builds a strong conscience. And your conscience
determines your moral responses in difficult, tempting, and trying

Thank you, Susan!

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 02/25/19:
one of the best water purifiers.)
Shungite comes from Russia.
How to make Shungite water.
My limited knowledge is Elite Shungite for water purification. Black Shungite works well for electromagnetic protection, but not for water purification. It's not really expensive and does not have to be replaced.
She gives a different perspective and claims only 3 nuggets.
Her explanations are informative and clear.
Shungite a way to test it, that is easy and pretty neat.
~j~ Angel Songs ~j~
Softer than my usual. Both songs are sung nicely, visually appealing and angelic. The cherubs and feather effects are great. The Lamb song cuts off abruptly at the end, but until then it's so pretty.
Eurythmics - There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart) (Remastered)
Lamb - Gabriel (Official Video)
Poets Of The Fall- Carnival Of Rust
& An awesome voice, as well as an awesome visual show, but nothing to do with angels.
When videos were good and people wore ample clothes.
Thank you, Shari - a very interesting array!

|Earl and Bubba were quietly
sitting in a boat fishing, chewing tobacco and drinking beer when
suddenly Bubba said, "Think I'm gonna divorce the wife... she ain't
spoke to me in over 2 months."
Earl spit overboard, takes a long, slow sip of beer and said, "Better think it over... women like that are hard to find."
