IT'S BEEN *THIS* LONG SINCE ANY MAINSTREAM EURODANCE HIT SINGLES?

And this was released in 2000/01.  DJ Sammy/Do/Yanou and Alice Deejay were the last Eurodance artists I recall having charting hits.  Like disco, I guess it went into temporary hibernation LOL

MAIL!

Other than Keurig coffee cups, my most-ordered grocery items online are the obscure preserves I like to bake with as well as trying different mustards from the Mustard Museum (link in "Places I Like!" list).  

You can't find anything huckleberry outside of states like Montana and have bought this particular brand of wild huckleberry preserves more than once in the past.  The Provencal mustard is my favorite kind and the only place around here I've found it at a couple times was a Marshall's store - even though I've tried making my own before, I also prefer the real thing from France.  

Now I need to buy some roll-out pie crusts!




BOUGHT BACK A PAC-PIECE OF MY CHILDHOOD FROM EBAY.......FOR $15!!

One of the good things about eBay is you can sometimes find and "buy back" something from your childhood that had gotten lost, disposed of or sold at a garage sale.  I'd always talked about wanting that Pac-Man sleeping bag I'd had and continued to use for several years, being the retro gaming geek I was and still am - no idea what happened to it.  

So I find one on eBay about a week ago and bid $15.  Somebody made about four bids on the auction while it was going but didn't manage to outbid me.  I only use eBay for "Buy It Now" purchases, so this was a very rare case I actually bid on an item and wasn't about to get into any bidding wars in case somebody  did outbid me.  Didn't happen.  As of a few hours ago, it's been shipped and on the way.  

Now I need to find the Hanna-Barbera Pac-Man cartoon that was released in two volumes on DVD a while back.  I've never seen them in stores but they're available at Amazon, etc.



And because of my $15 bargain win, I played a celebratory game of the original Pac-Man for the first time in over a decade.

THIS IS LIABLE TO GET MESSY

You know I can't have a damn pomegranate without making a bloody mess of the place!

BRONSKI BEAT 2.0 FEATURING JON FOSTER

Two lead singers replaced the original, Jimmy Somerville, from 1986-to the mid 90's, but the mainstays were founding keyboardists/musicians Steve Bronski and Larry Steinbachek.  

Jon Foster was hired to replace Somerville in 1986 and he remained with Bronski for a couple years.  Since the Facebook era, Foster has been working on a future TBA project with Steve Bronski once again.  Here's to a reunion in one form or another!
