The Civil Wars...

"Poison and Wine"

"Barton Hollow"

Today at work, one of the sales associates heard me humming a tune as I was re-working a table display and he asked me what I was humming. I told him it was a Civil War song and he busted out with  a laugh sure to awaken Dallas. I told him it wasn't a song from the Civil War but that it's a band and he thought that was even funnier. I didn't understand why there was a second laugh but I guess he thought it was funny. 

My sister (once again) introduced me to The Civil Wars which is a duo band partly from Nashville and partly from Alabama. Joy Williams and John Paul White are the voices behind the name, which isn't funny. Their music is actually somewhat serious and deeply entrenched in story telling with love and the emotions that come with it being the subject.

There is passion and true grit in their sound... thus the name The Civil Wars. Enjoy.

British Humor is Jolly Good

One of my friends showed me this video camping and it made me laugh so hard. This clip is from a Television show on BBC One called "Walk on the Wild Side." The shows website  doesn't have any other episodes up to watch, so I guess YouTube is going to have to suffice.

last night I ate meat

For the first time in a couple of years (maybe my boyfriend will argue with me because he thinks my memory is that of of a gold fish) I ate a steak last night. I'm not a veggie but just would prefer to eat other animals besides cow. Any way, I don't know if this news is news but I had pictures of meat art in my inspirational folder on my desktop and I thought well why not celebrate being inspired and eating at the same time. I predict this is a once every once-and-a-while thing but I will admit it I missed A1 Steak Sauce. go meat!
