    To me, Tap is one of the loneliest sounds so it also makes for a dusty room.


    Face it, I'm a sap. Lots of things make for a dusty room.

    Orcas kill great white sharks and just eat the liver. Major ocean swagger.

    This is why Julia Child was so very proud of them.

    Absolutely same for me. I'm a regular, multiple times weekly crier.

    Add to the list of songs that do this to me:
    • The Flaming Lips, 'Fight Test'
    • Journey, 'Don't Stop Believin''
    • Kermit, 'Rainbow Connection'
    • Colin Hay, 'Waiting for My Real Life to Begin'

    Gosh, there are honestly quite a lot more. Music is the #1 trigger of tears for me, followed pretty closely by wise/profound/naive and oblivious things my student say (sometimes it's all three of those things at once).

    Recently I am a glass case of emotion. Sort of sucks.

    Taps has moved me most at my uncle's funeral and when I was standing in the middle of the US Cemetery at Omaha Beach.

    Singing this around a Girl Scout Campfire makes this a much happier song.

    I don't think if I did that it would be perceived as a happy occasion...

    A lot of times when I cry (most of the time, in fact), it's not because I'm sad.

    We were Girl Scouts and we were camping. What did we know?

    Do you not remember Julia (via Dan Aykroyd) admonishing us to not throw away the liver?

    One of the funniest shocks I've ever had in my life was visiting friends in Santa Barbara, shopping at Von's grocery, wheeling into an aisle and coming cart to cart with a most formidable Julia Child. She towered over me like I was a munchkin, and I'm not short.

    Sage advice!

    That’s a nice meet. Did you see what she had in her cart?

    lots of produce...pretty big hair plus several inches of boost on her sensible shoes and her natural 6-2 frame had her as a most formidable cart wielder...

    On the Katmai Peninsula in summer, the "brown" bears (grizzlies) catch only female salmon and eat just the roe and brains, leaving the rest for birds and anyone else who wants some good fresh salmon. I've seen it. It's amazing.

    Then, when the blueberries are ripe, all the bears leave the river and stuff themselves on berries for a day or two. Haven't seen that.
