Tuesday Tunes

This is one of my all time favorite U2 songs, definitely in the top five. It's now ranking at number 1 because it has put Syda to sleep the last two nights. The song is sung from the point of view of a guardian angel and has always pulled me in for some reason. I stumbled across this great acoustic version from the Boston stop of the Elevation Tour. Got to love when any band strips things down to the basics, and as always, U2 fans know when to sing along.

Don't ever tell me that Zooropa was a crap album.

Snow....Glorious Snow

We've had to wait for snow a bit longer than usual up here this year. Yule was spent with some chilly temps, but no fluffy snow to enjoy. The freak Halloween snow storm that knocked out our power for two days was all we had seen of any precipitation until last week. Thankfully the snow started falling and the spirits of the little boys in this house were restored. We've only got about four inches now, thanks to some mild temps and rain, but it's sticking around. I'm sure we'll get more and be complaining of its intrusive power soon enough. Winter may have gotten off to a slow start in Maine this year, but that's not a problem, considering it has at least three more months to make its mark.

Tuesday Tunes

Little holiday hiatus there - it's over now. trying to get back on track with some regular posting here to keep track of our days and watch the winter days go by. I'll start slow and easy though, with Tuesday tunes, the good old standby.
