    I post on Weight Watchers.com every day--more than here actually! I've had excellent success with them! I also visit a Christian Message Board a lot and Ancestry.com and Genealogy.com. When I want a reward, I come here! --Julie
  2. Man, I never had the pleasure of seeing these guys perform live (or Eric alone for that matter), but, WOW! It must have just been absolutely, sizzlin', awesome! The big, dramatic pauses are just great! Thank you for this treat! (Even better than a hot fudge sundae and a butter burger at Culver's!)
  3. OOOOOOO!!!!!!! Butterburgers at Culvers!! Wonderful!!! I LOVE their hot fudge sundaes!! Their hot fudge sauce (ooooo Tiny--a sauce!) is just to die for! Love Subway too! --Julie
  4. Bobby Sherman--my first "conscience idol". But, I gotta say, before that, I was always singing "Hard Day's Night" on the school bus when I was in kindergarten. The bigger kids loved how I sang it (mainly because I couldn't understand the words----I thought it was a song about Mr. Magoo!!!--stupid little kid I was!) --Julie
  5. How sweet of you to worry! I've got both feet planted firmly on the ground though with this guy! I made myself a bracelet that says, "Patience" and he wants me to make him one to (I'm thinking a keychain might be better for him though.....lol) We've both been burned in the past and are being extra-cautious and really taking time to get to know each other. --Julie
  6. Ya, that's word for word what he said! We're not engaged though--we're sort of engaged to be engaged! He's a terrific guy! A total sweetheart and respectful, polite and trustworthy! And yes, he is very much a Hunk! In the words of a friend of mine who met him last weekend, "Julie!!! He's gorgeous!!!" Washboard abs, blue eyes, sigh......etc, etc....Sorry, Eric--he's even cuter than you! Lol! But, I really don't think he's ever heard of the Raspberries! (I'm reasonably sure that if I play some of their music for him he will recognize it, though!) ---Julie
  7. I've been dating a guy off and on for a couple of months now and things have kind of picked up steam in the last couple of weeks to the point where we're calling each other 3 times a day and such--and tonight, we were having a good discussion and talking about music and as luck would have it, he has pretty compatible taste with mine. So in the course of the conversation, I said, "If we're ever going to have any kind of a serious relationship, there is a group I love that you're just going to have to love even if you don't". And he said, "Well, who is it?" and I said, "The Raspberries" and without missing a beat he said, "I love them". (Honestly, I don't know if he's ever heard of them or not!) Then he used that as a seguay (did I spell that right??!) and said, "so, would you consider pursuing a steady and serious relationship with me?" to which I replied, "Yes!" So folks, a new fan is born! Lol! --Julie
  8. Hmmmm......that's really weird! How did you get your margins to move?? Lol! I'm impressed, Carmen. What do you do for an encore?
  9. Well, I got a pathetic 57. I guess I didn't like the 80's music much either.
  10. Ridiculous......hmmmmm.....how about: "Calling Occupants" by the Carpenters (don't know if that's the correct title, but it's gotta be close....)
  11. "Countin' Flowers on the Wall"--Statler Brothers "Big Bertha" ---Eddie Rabbitt "Sweet Pain" ---Hamilton, Joe Frank and Reynolds "I Go To Rio" ---Pablo Cruise "Miss Otis Regrets" ---Bette Midler "Hands on You" ---Raspberries "I'm a Believer" ---Smashmouth (guaranteed to put me in a good mood) "My Heart Stops" ---Eric (actually, Eric and the 'Berries have tons of happy music!) "10,000 Pounds of Bananas"---Harry Chapin "The Tide is High" (and so am I--lol)--Blondie "Long Tall Glasses" ---Leo Sayer "Every Time I Think of You" ---the Babys I know there are about a million others. I'm a person that really appreciates happy music! Even dumb, happy music! --Julie
  12. I rode an elevator with a guy I was 90% sure was Neil Diamond several years ago! Hey, Matt, do you suppose it was the same guy you met??! I still don't know for sure. He was lost and couldn't figure out which floor to get off on and he was carrying a guitar case and was dressed very nicely. This was in Sioux City, Iowa. Anyway, when he finally got off of the elevator and stayed off, all of us that remained on there looked at each other and said, "Was that Neil Diamond???!!" Lol!! The only thing I wasn't sure of was that he wasn't very tall. Anybody know if Neil is short?? Lol!! I met Eddie Rabbitt after a show in Branson, Mo. several years ago and he was just terrific. He gave me an autograph and posed for a picture and complimented me on my camera! Too fun. Unfortunately, I was too star-struck to say anything intelligible! Also, this probably doesn't really count, but I'm good friends with one of Randy Bachman's daughters. Was invited to her wedding last year and would have loved to have gone but it was in Utah and I don't get much vacation time. We do keep in touch via email. I've never met her dad (and I've always been a big fan) but didn't want to exploit our friendship to meet him. It's kind of a weird story as to how we met and became friends, but I won't bore you all with it. Lol! ---Julie
  13. "I Go Crazy" by Paul Davis always used to make me cry. These days though, I guess it's "I'll Never Get Over You Getting Over Me" by Expose. Pretty much sums up my love life. Gee, my life sucks! --Julie
  14. I'm a Certified Activity Director in Long-Term Care. I work in a skilled nursing facility and am the head of our Activity Department. I plan, coordinate and lead activities for the elderly. Our facility has an Alzheimer's Unit, Assisted Living, Independent Living and regular and skilled nursing home residents. I have worked here for 13 years and love my job very much. I have a terrific staff and great residents to work with. I have a Bachelor's in English and Speech Communications. Previous to this, I had my own photography business, shooting weddings, family portraits and seniors (of the high school persuasion). I also did all of my own hand retouching. I gave this up when I lost the center vision in my left eye, but still maintain an avid interest in photography and digitally restoring/retouching photographs. I've been a Sunday School teacher, County Food Pantry board member, County Arts membership secretary (and a bunch of other strange stuff)and currently I do volunteer work for our local library (I am helping to automate and catalog the library--it's a small library--about 8,000 titles--still, it will take about a year to complete). I also am a volunteer for our county's Genealogical Society. I am helping to digitally photograph all of the tombstone's in our county! HUGE project! I'm not married and never have been (although I am currently "on the prowl") and I am a "mom" to 2 kitties. ---Julie
  15. Oh, I love Spock! Don't get me wrong. I'm quite the "Trekie". (I have the blue prints to the Enterprise, among other odd things.....). But, have you ever heard him sing? Lol! --Julie
  16. I'm thinking Leonard Nimoy (Spock). Now that would be quite bizarre...... ---Julie
  17. Ya, I know he was being sarcastic-lol! That's why I put the little "spinning face" there--
  18. Ya Tony, the Bible is a great book that touches on these subjects. Saw the movie last night. Wow. Very powerful indeed. That was actually a woman that portrayed Satan. Very "Powder-like". I'd like to see it again. ALL of us put him up there on that cross.
  19. It didn't matter what song it was. At long as it was something you could "twitch" and "die" to it worked! It was a group decision to do it though--like doing the Hokey Pokey.
  20. This one goes back to my days in Junior High! It was a dance called "The Dying Cockroach". It really wasn't much of a dance, but we thought it was fun. (you couldn't do it in a dress though!) Basically, you started out "spraying" each other by making motions like you had a can of bug spray. Then, you started "spazzing out"--arms flailing, coughing, etc .....(I told you, this is a Junior High thing). Then, after a fashion you sort of collapsed to the floor and writhed around some more. By the end of the song (and it could be any song) you were on your back with all of your limbs up in the air twitching.
  21. English, 1 semester of Spanish (taught by a Cuban Professor) and fluent "cat". --Julie (meow)
  22. Could someone please pass me a tissue.....? --Julie
  23. Well, it's not on any of the 4 Michael Bolton CD's I have. (oops!!! Maybe I need to post this in the "Hate to admit" thread......lol) --Julie
