Remember

May spark a state of ingratitude

Remember the importance of attitude

Tuesday Chatter 82

Welcome to the Tuesday Chatter Cafe. Have a seat and let’s talk about this and that while enjoying a cuppa. Undoubtedly, certainty is doubtful.

1982 is a most interesting year with the continuing change in technology and our buying habits. Smaller and less expensive gizmos are appearing which includes the first CD player sold in Japan. To put a pen to the technology trend, Time magazine named the man of the year The Computer.

The Weather Channel airs on cable for the first time. By the way, ladies quilted boots sold for $29.99, men’s boat shoes sold for $44.99. A Severe recession begins in the US. To keep up with the news the first issue of USA Today is published.

Disney expands by opening the EPCOT ( Experimental Community Of Tomorrow). You can buy a ladies jumpsuit for $25.00. The largest cash robbery in the US in NY with $9.8 mil stolen from an armored car. The average cost of a new house in the US is $82,200., while the average annual income is $21,050. Tylenol capsules are laced with potassium cyanide killing 7. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington DC is dedicated.

TV viewers had an excellent variety of shows to watch such as – Magnum, PI, Dynasty, Falcon Crest, and Hill Street Blues. And for the movie goers, there were E.T., Rocky III, On Golden Pond, Poltergeist and Annie, just to name a few.

The world of music has a lot to offer with Michael Jackson’s Thriller, Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder with “Ebony and Ivory”, the Steve Miller Band and “Abracadabra”, and Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger”. Music was going through major changes with the influx of electronics, rock, pop, new wave, disco, and reggae adding to and taking over some of the sounds of the soul artists.

Music’s message wasn’t as much in the lyrics as it was in the groove. Dancing was exciting, invigorating and electric. This was another special time in my life as I loved the dance scene and my independence. I was single, had a good job and just loving life. I had moved from the Miami area to Tampa, FL – another new city to explore and learn about.

No intellectual exercise

No wearing a bowtie

A year unutterably untucked

Technology melting the resolve

It’s easier to connect the dots

A cuppa will hit the spot

Let’s just enjoy the moment

Throw away the itinerary

Let nature take its course

Open the windows of opportunity

It’s a good year, just listen to the music

Put your ear to the ground

Let the vibes transcribe the sound

1982 a forward moving medley

A comforting confusion like pie ala mode

-Eugenia

See Norway - Se Norge

Verden  får ofte et litt annet perspektiv når man beveger seg inn i en ‘macro-verden’; noe bier og andre insekter gjør daglig. Og mens vi går i butikken og kjøper hva vi trenger, må våre små ‘venner’ bade i en klissete substans før de får hva de trenger 🙂
Dette er hvordan det kan se ut inne i en tulipan!

The world may change dramatically if one enters what we call ‘the macro World’.
Whilst we buy what we need in a nearby grocery store, or ‘small friends’ will have to drench themselves in a rather sticky substance before they get what they need.
This it how it may look inside a tulip!

Anew

Paper doll people so state-of-the-art

One tiny misstep they fall apart

When will they learn there’s no free dinner

It’s a short dance there’s no winner

A fresh new start woos the beginner

Tuesday Chatter 81

 

Welcome to the Tuesday Chatter Cafe, where there’s nothing better than a thought-provoking chat over a great cuppa coffee. Let’s talk about this and that and figure out where it’s at or do we really want to know? Undoubtedly, certainty is doubtful.

The wreck of the Titanic is found, in the North Atlantic, Muhammad Ali retires with a career record of 55 wins and 5 defeats, Sandra Day O’Connor is nominated to become the first female justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, the first American test-tube baby is born, Lady Diana Spencer marries Charles, Prince of Wales, scientists identify the AIDS virus, the term internet debuts, MS-DOS released by Microsoft.

It’s nineteen eighty-one with songs unsung

Inventors and techies becoming well-spun

Hey, stop and listen and spit out that gum

We got splashes of passion and destination addiction

When we will know if life’s fact of fiction

It’s stupid o’clock so there’s the contradiction

We still got inflation they didn’t get the sticky note

or was it they didn’t get the memo

Either way, costs keep rising

It’s the same old song and not surprising

Listen to the music and put your ear to the ground

The dots are connected proving the earth is round

I found my life in the lost and found

I don’t give a flip about your dip I sing to another tune

I want to be the man in the moon

and run away with the spoon

-Eugenia

Average cost of new house $78,200 and the median price of and an existing home $66,400, average income per year $21,050.00, average monthly rent $315.00, 
a gallon of gas $1.25. 

1981 was an interesting year for celebrities, music, and movies. The Royal wedding between Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer took place. The wedding was quite the event and I remember being glued to the TV watching every minute of it along with an estimated 750 million people, worldwide.

Walter Cronkite signs off as anchorman of CBS Evening News, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison record a tribute to John Lennon, the song 9 to 5 recorded by Dolly Parton in December of 1980 makes it big in 1981, MTV (Music Television) is launched in August. I was a real fan of MTV, however, not so much now that they have changed by toning down their music video programming. They are more into a variety of original reality, comedy and drama programming, which they have lost my interest. Wikipedia offers a comprehensive article on MTV and I have included the link at the bottom of my post for anyone that wishes to read it. I enjoyed the article because it includes numerous links to the musicians and musical groups that had airplay on MTV.

National Celebration (Reminder)

Sharing from Svein – Norway celebrates its “National Day”

See Norway - Se Norge

Idag er det igjen 17 Mai, og igjen feirer hele Norge sin nasjonaldag. Og siden det nå er 3 år siden jeg laget en fotoreportasje fra festen i Oslo, finner jeg grunn til å minne om den igjen. Fotoreportasjen inneholder hele 28 bilder, og for dem som vil gjenoppleve festen, så ligger det en direkte link til hele reportasjen her!

Today it’s the 17th of May, and again Norway celebrates its ‘National Day’ throughout the country! And since 3 years have passed since I produced a massive photo report on the celebrations that took place in Oslo, perhaps it’s time to reming you that the entire
photo report including 28 pictures, may be seen again if you follow this link!

Wanderlust fuels a flyaway world

Stars sleepwalk upon well-spun clouds

Universal secrets become unfurled

Ideas in symphony and yet not too loud

Tuesday Chatter 80

 

Welcome to the Tuesday Chatter Cafe, where there’s nothing better than a thought-provoking chat over a great cuppa coffee. Let’s talk about this and that and figure out where it’s at or do we really want to know? Undoubtedly, certainty is doubtful.

Ronald Regan elected President of the US, Japan becomes the world’s largest auto producing country, Mariel boat lift a mass exodus of political refugees from Cuba to the US, Post-it notes make their debut in US stores, Beatle John Lennon is shot to death, the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas is destroyed by fire, 30% of US car sales are imports. CNN becomes the first 24 hr news station, Mount St. Helens erupts on May 18th in Washington killing 57, Hurricane Allen makes landfall on Haiti and Jamaica, first ever natural birth in captivity of a Giant panda in Mexico

Average cost of new house $68,700.00, average income per year $19,500.00, average monthly rent $300.00, cost of a gallon of gas $1.19, average cost new car $7,200.00

Latest Census – US Population is 226,504,825

Were you a fan of the TV soap opera series Dallas? If so you may remember 1980 was the year that millions of viewers tuned in to see who shot the lead character, J.R. Ewing.  The TV series Dallas aired from 1978 to 1991with 356 episodes.  I am not a person that watches much TV but this show held my interest for some time. I’ve included the link to the IMDb site featuring Dallas if you’re interested in reading about the series.

1980 was a sad year in music due to the loss of John Lennon. He was murdered by a crazed fan outside his Manhattan apartment. He was 40 years old – wow, too soon for such a talented artist.

There were some hot musical groups in 1980 from the UK and the US. I remember ABBA, Pink Floyd, Blondie, David Bowie, K.C. and The Sunshine Band, AC/DC, and Queen just to name a few. I saw K.C. and The Sunshine Band in concert at Disney World. Everyone was dancing to their contagious beat. I still get up and dance when I hear “Get Down Tonight”, “That’s the way I Like It”. and Shake Your Booty. Their combination of funk, R&B and disco are timeless.

Nineteen eighty, a seesaw year

Nine to five lives switch to second gear

Voyager 1 eyes Janus while cruising in space

The clock an hour late yet has no face

Regan’s a winner in the Presidential race

 The journey through life’s a mighty cool ride

Paper doll people learning how to high five

Selfies not yet for that keepsake shot

The ante must be hefty to sweeten the pot

Gotta be sure to use a wide angle lens

 So the world can see that Mercedes Benz

Holy moly and needles and pins

Mt. Helen spews messing up the sky

We lost John Lennon the guitar gently cried

Another misstep in life and don’t know why

Bitter ideas should roll around in the mouth

Before fractured thoughts hitchhike to the south

Why is life’s show and tell the same old song

When the show’s over there’s no righting the wrong

-Eugenia

Green Fields

Beautiful shades of green – photo via Svein.

See Norway - Se Norge

Jeg skylder å gjøre oppmerksom på, at dette bildet er tatt kl 21.15 i kveld etter at solen hadde gått ned, men samtidig føler jeg at grønnfargen kom best frem på dette tidspunkt? Rart å tenke på at dette jordet var dekket av hvis snø så sent som i går på denne tiden!
Går man 4-500 meter opp i høyde, så lå det faktisk 40 cm nysnø i åsene rundt Oslo i går morges! Og folk som går på ski den 12 Mai !!!
I ought to inform you that this picture was shot a 9.15 pm today and after the sun had decended underneath the horizon. But I felt that the green color came best through under these light conditions? It’s a bit strange to reacall that these fields were covered in white snow as late as yesterday morning?
And if you move up about 14-1500 feet in the…
