  3. I recognise a few in there and have read Lincoln in the Bardo and The Underground Railroad. Will be interested in your opinion of 4321, iff
  4. Sorry RG, Chuntzy already linked with freedom, and I went on with SONGS from the Wood.

  6. Always prepared to rise to a challenge, Dan! FREEDOM Of Speech - John Mellencamp
  7. I'm sorry to hear that Momac. As is now becoming the norm I seem to have an accompanying stomach infection, so feeling squeamish as well. Have gotten a little more deaf too. *sigh*
  8. I'm feeling a bit that way with my arm, have had three physio sessions so far and after the one on Tuesday my arm was very sore the next day and is painful this morning. Wondering if the exercises I have to do are helping or hindering plus when the young man uses ultrasound on my arm he does it way up on my shoulder, nowhere near where the pain is. When I went to a chiropractor a few years ago with a sore back he treated where the pain was and it helped - have mentioned this to the young man and he said what I have is referred pain from my shoulder and I don't think I believe him. So have excused myself from today's session and will see if I can persuade him to use the ultrasound where the pain is. In the meantime, there's still Tylenol.
  9. SONGS from the wood-Jethro Tull
  10. Last week
  11. OK Dan- Songs of FREEDOM- Santana
  12. At this point I'll try anything, Momac
  13. Sorry about your ear problem Luna, had the deafness problem for three days this week myself, ear tube blocked, no pain but really annoying, however, it cleared up itself. Drank lots of water and used some hand reflexology, I don't know if that helped but it gave me the feeling that I was doing something positive.
  14. Proper Glasgow Fair weather today i.e. lashing it down with rain. Had an early doctor's appointment (I have an ear infection in both ears so nearly deaf, which is great fun with my nearly deaf father!) and then went to see Christ on the Cross of St John (painting) at Kelvingrove Art Galleries before it gets shipped out to the States to earn the Galleries money so that they can remain open. I've been visiting this painting since I was a little girl and now believe that it belongs to me only so get disappointed when it goes on tour and I shall miss it.
  15. Sorry Chuntzy, but I already linked with TICKLER. Do you have a song with FREEDOM?
  16. Everything that RISES must converge-Flannery O'Connor
  17. The Sun Also Rises - Hemmingway
  18. The END of the Affair - Graham Greene
  19. Let Me TICKLE your Fancy -The Jackson Five
  20. Yeah, sorry about that, RG! Rather thoughtless of me. I'd just been listening to Tom Waits, and didn't really consider the difficulty of matching 'eyeball'. Freedom TICKLER-Andrew Jackson Jihad
  21. EYEBALL Tickler - Oasis Goodness knows it was hard enough to link "eyeball" and apologies for leaving "tickler"
  22. Sabre
