Two real estate rich kids walk into a bar.

They are joined by a a Russian lawyer, a fat foreign showbiz agent and a shady political strategist.

Next arrivals: two Soviet-era spies, trailing a translator.

"Hi guys," sez the bartender. "You must be here to talk about adoption."

It's cool to be a cat

I wish I had nine lives

I bet it feels real nice

Sitting in the sun

Letting all the waves wash over me

I do what I want

Everybody wants to be a cat ...

It's cool to be a cat.

Why God gave you the Internet....

So here's all you need to know ... just three things.

* ... Minnesota Public Radio's never-ending streams of classical music, hosted or by genre ... make your iPad or Kindle soar!

* ... MPR's genius new music fountain, streaming or on demand, studio sessions with every new songster/band eager to knock your socks off

* ... public radio's best host site ... here, find the New Yorker mag's podcasts, Jonathan Schwartz's jazz stream, WQXR, all searchable by program/topic/toontype

You will notice does not make my cut. Why is that? Look. Listen. Pity.

This is how I spent my Saturday...

It's bug season in my part of the world ... so I spend the day watching this a dozen times ... is it the video? The audio?

Do I care? LOL....

The sweetest season....

The chickadees are back.
Wrens pick pine nuts off the deck tree ...
Deer tracks disappear, ditto dirty snow.
We are very near now 
  to bunnies
  and green
And I search for Jimmy Scott...

"For this time it isn't  fascination
Or a dream that will  fade  and fall apart
It's  love
This time it's  love
My  foolish  heart..."

Jimmy Scott -- My Foolish Heart
