Beating Heat

Kasia and I are hiding inside in the air, as the real feel temperature is 100 degrees.

The Gerbers are trying their best to also hang in there.

Kasia.and I found a concert that was playing on the AXIS channel. It was callled Hungarian Rhapsody- Queen live in Bucharest, With this disclaimer, Queen was always one of my favorite groups. Their music brings memories of happy times for me.

The concert ran for an hour, and it’s amazing, after years of sitting at outside concerts, getting bit and the like, well, old age gets me to stay in air-conditioning and enjoying it.

Songs like Radio Gaga, Bohemian Rhapsody, We are the Champions: these were just a few of the hits they played. Freddie Mercury even learned a song in Hungarian and the crowd went wild.

What a pleasure to find a surprise like this on a Wednesday afternoon.

Red Shoes Dancing the Blues

  
When I woke up yesterday morning,I was shocked.

Granted, I pick up a People magazine once a week, or watch the E channel, but as they say, the family kept it quiet.

The death of David Bowie is a loss for the music world. It also hits a timeline in most of us 40 and overs lifetimes.Some of us never had a chance to see Bowie at the local theater when they came in town. Most of us knew of him through the radio, or MTV videos for those younger than us.Duets he did with Freddie Mercury and Queen,”Under Pressure” were one of my favorite performances.I love when he did Dancing in the Streets with Mick Jagger. Remembering the music brings me back to my youth, to a carefree time in life. I remember Space Oddity..I had never heard anything like that before.
