Monthly Key Word Reading Challenge

Okay this one just sounds like fun so have to try. Maybe you would like to join us!!!
If you want to join chick this link:

For this challenge I have chosen ten key words associated with each month in 2013. Your task is to read one book each month whose title includes one or more of the key words for that month. For instance, in January I might read Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah. The key words are listed below.


* The title you choose can be a variation on one of the key words. For example- your title could include the word 'snowing' or 'snowflake' even though the key word is 'snow.'

*Key words can be tweaked. For example- You could read "Cinder" or "Ashes" for the key word 'Fire' and that would be just fine. If the key word is 'family' then your title could include the word 'sister' or 'mother.'If the key word is 'food' then your title could include the word 'cake.' 

* Link up below to participate and add additional links any time you post about the challenge or post about a book you read for the challenge.

Music I like.............

I like almost any music, that is why I joined a music community, Music when I was invited.  I told one lady the songs I liked and my favorite band.  She hadn't heard of some of the songs so I went looking for them to share on the site.  

I was able to find all on YouTube (who knew!!!).  So I am putting them here for my readers to hear.  Warning you now, that they are from different categories.

My Favorite song is a tie between 

One Tin Soldier-The Original Caste 

and Solitude - Black Sabbath

My second Favorite is All in a Mouses Night - Genesis

And my favorite band is......

The Guess Who
(there isn't a song they sing I do not like)
Here is one of my favorites from them
Share the Land

From todays music I really love this one

 What Makes You Beautiful - One Direction

If you listen to the words of each song, you will see why I love them!

Okay I will be back later!
I hope you enjoy the songs. ;~)

On a separate note my cats love to hear me sing, even off key!  LOL!!! 
They run to me when I start singing (not like the whistling - they really hate that!!!).

Thanks for dropping by!! Will be back soon.

New Year's Night

Was having a bit of a problem with my computer, believe it is fixed now!

We couldn't go out New Year's Eve because my boyfriend was working.
So we went out New Year's Day, well night.  ;~)
We went to the Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
After we parked, we walked to the casino.  I started taking some pictures but had to stop because the wind was so cold my hands started to freeze.  And I mean freeze, we went to eat first and it took a good 20 minutes before my hands started to feel normal again.  Who would have thought that hands could hurt so much, it actually made me queasy.
Here a few pictures I took before my hands got real bad.

The food was pretty good once my stomach settled.  
Here is a few pictures I took of the ceiling in the Buffet room.  
Very pretty!

Okay the one bad habit I have is smoking.  
This is what I saw from the smoking area.
The Falls!

Than they turned off the colored lights.

Okay these are just lights. ;~)

We played for a few hours, Me on the penny slots.
I actually played for over a hour on one with 20 dollars and cashed out 10 to try another.
Didn't win big, maybe next time!

 These are the statue in the lobby.
My honey went to get the car so I wouldn't have to walk again in the wind.
So, of course I took some more pictures. ;~)

This is above the fountain in the lobby (fountain follows).

This is the view from the front doors
Yes that is a fountain light up by red lights. 
There are close up below.

Was going to take this one off but thought you would like a laugh, I accidentally took a picture of the sidewalk!! LOL

Here is that fountain.

And this is their sign.

Well that is how I brought in the New Year!  Hope you liked the pictures!

I would like to announce a new blog today.
I have decided to let my Foxy have a blog. 
 Check it out! 
 I hope you like it!!!
