Jackson Browne says Bottled Water is Inconvenient!

Watch the video. How can you argue with his logic? We ARE starved for real food, real information and an authentic life. Lose the plastic. It's a start......

The Highwaymen

I will always love this song....Classic, legendary, poignant
impeccable. Thank you Willie, Waylon, Kris and Johnny......

I was a highwayman. Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five
But I am still alive.

I was a sailor. I was born upon the tide
And with the sea I did abide.
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed
But I am living still.

I was a dam builder across the river deep and wide
Where steel and water did collide
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around..I'll always be around..and around and around and
around and around

I blast starships across the Universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I'll be back again, and again and again and again and again..

Doctor My Eyes~A Jackson Browne Masterpiece~Covered by Michael Jackson and the Jackson Five~

Doctor, my eyes have seen the years
And the slow parade of fears without crying
Now I want to understand

I have done all that I could
To see the evil and the good without hiding
You must help me if you can

Doctor, my eyes
Tell me what is wrong
Was I unwise to leave them open for so long

Cause I have wandered through this world
And as each moment has unfurled
Ive been waiting to awaken from these dreams
People go just where they will
I never noticed them until I got this feeling
That its later than it seems

Doctor, my eyes
Tell me what you see
I hear their cries
Just say if its too late for me

Doctor, my eyes
Cannot see the sky
Is this the prize for having learned how not to cry

I LOVE Tom Petty! One More Time Down South~

headed back down south
gonna see my daddy's mistress
gonna buy back her forgivness
pay off every witness

One more time down south
sell the family headstones
drag a bag of dry bones
make good on my back loans

so if i come to your door
let me sleep on your floor
i'll give you all i have
and a little more

sleep late down south
look up my former mentors
live off yankee winters
be a landlord and a renter

create myself down south
impress all the women
pretend i'm samuel clemens
wear seersucker and white linens

so if i come to your door
let me sleep on your floor
i'll give you all i have
and a little more

spanish moss down south
spirits cross the dead fields
mosquitoes hit the windshield
all document remain sealed

so if i come to your door
let me sleep on your floor
i'll give you all i have
and a little more

i'll give you all i have
and a little more

She Must Be Somebody's Baby

No doubt,one of the most "commercial" Jackson Browne tunes, written for Cameron Crowe's "Fast Times at Ridgemont High", this song may be the only touch point you have with Jackson Browne....I implore you to explore his work. You will be amazed!

Somebody's Baby
Jackson Browne & Danny Kortchmar
[From the "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" soundtrack]

Well, just - a look at that girl with the lights comin' up in her eyes.
She's got to be somebody's baby.
She must be somebody's baby.
All the guys on the corner stand back and let her walk on by.
She's got to be somebody's baby.
She must be somebody's baby.
She's got to be somebody's baby.
She's so fine.
She's probably somebody's only light.
Gonna shine tonight.
Yeah, she's probably somebody's baby, all right.

I heard her talkin' with her friend when she thought nobody else was around.
She said she's got to be somebody's baby; she must be somebody's baby.
'Cause when the cars and the signs and the street lights light up the town,
She's got to be somebody's baby;
She must be somebody's baby;
She's got to be somebody's baby.
She's so....
She's gonna be somebody's only light.
Gonna shine tonight.
Yeah, she's gonna be somebody's baby tonight.

I try to shut eyes, but I can't get here outta my sight.
I know I'm gonna know her, but I gotta get over my fright.
We'll, I'm just gonna walk up to her.
I'm gonna talk to her tonight.
Yeah, she's gonna be somebody's only light.
Gonna shine tonight.
Yeah, she's gonna be somebody's baby tonight.
Gonna shine tonight, make her mine tonight.

Full Circle

So, my favorite singer/songwriter is Jackson Browne. My twenty year old daughter loves Tim Rice Oxley, of the group Keane. She has seen Jackson with me and I have seen Keane with her. Wonderful experiences, making us both appreciative of the others musical choices.

What a treat to find Mr. Oxley covering "These Days", a song Jackson Browne wrote when he was just sixteen.

My daughter and I both screamed with delight when we saw this. Full Circle......The apple doesn't fall far from the tree....

Do You Think is True?

Do we really do this? I'm afraid I do.....I am so worried about people LIKING me~that sometimes my message is about you? Thanks to my sis for sending me this!


(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting h er time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man... That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome . (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' . that will bring on a 'whatever').

(8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying F-- YOU!

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.
