HEAVEN, HOME & ANGELS


I love music... I love, love, love, music.. ALL kinds, any time. There is a song for every emotion and situation. Are you like me?




Something I noticed about myself is.. I like just about ANY song that has the words "Heaven" or "Home" or "Angel" in the title. To me, songs with one of these words in the title or chorus are
guaranteed to speak to me in a deep way. It something I noticed for a long time and recently decided that I will make 3 CDs, each dedicated to songs about each topic. (its a good idea, you should try it)











I asked the masterminds at "NubianNewYorkers" (The Yahoo Group). The 24,000 plus members have vast knowledge on all sorts of things. 


So to collect the songs I need for the
CDs, I asked for some titles by writing to NubianNewYorkers@YahooGroups.com
And just like always, the brilliant members stepped up. Here's the list they've given me so far....
(hope these titles, provided by these "Angels" will help to create some "Heaven" in your "Home"
like they did for me...)

Drinking from the cup of knowledge..



"If I want to stock the bar in my apartment with enough liquor to cover anything guests at a small dinner party might need, what exactly do I need besides Vodka and Rum?" was the question I posted in the Yahoo Group "NubianNewYorkers" http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NubianNewYorkers/ .

For years I have watched as the 22,000 plus members gave expert advice to each other on all kinds of topics and I am happy to say I found the answers I got to be very very informative...

now you're talking my language.

well lets see,?!?

exactly which vodka and rum do you have? because any self respecting party giver should know, that at the minimum the rum is bacardi, and the vodka is smirnoff. that triple distilled is no play play. but i do remember a fierce headache after. so play it safe and get the absolute. or if your really g fab then you might do kettle one or vox. the gin is seagrams. tangarey gives you a little something else, i dont know exactly what that taste is, it's distinct. not like the other gins. but it does go well with grapefruit juice. seagrams goes with just about anything.


there should be a big bottle of brandy. folks usually like that. try the paul masson brandy vs or the vsop. that went over well at my last get together. they preferred it to the henney. and you know there has got to be some henney.


but back to brandy. you could stick to E&J, or christian brothers, have any of you tried the white E&J? that dark one turned me. then you should have some johnny walker red, or black, or dewars. if you like scotch, and you know we like some scotch, especially at some one elses expense. matter of fact, leave that under the counter, and give it to the ones that ask for scotch specifically. you can leave the dewars on the shelf.



bourbon, jack daniels. am i forgetting something? oh beer, plenty or beer. the hot ones are coors lite, heinieken corona or good old BUD. any rate, that sounds like a nice starters kit. and dont be ashamed to tell your friends to bring a libation with them. to add to the pot. if you have them friends with the good home training, then you wont have to ask them at all. they come correct. like mama taught em.

tell us all about the party. i know it will be a smash.

you can try some tequila

some wine and cognac and brandy plus henny and remy, also keep sodas around like pepsi and coke plus spirte and 7-up or sierra mist or vault which is good.

and juices the best to get them at is costco or sam's club as you can get the big ones for 2 at 5 dollars a bottle.

and don't neglect gin.

You don't really need a fully stocked bar for a small dinner party. Unless that is the par - tay! I think you should have beer & a Red and White wine to compliment the food you plan to serve. I would make a "specialty drink" with the rum or vodka and have something non alcoholic: like an equally satisfying "mocktail"- fruit juice and club soda w/ lime just in case someone decides to be the designated driver for the evening. Enjoy!

THE DOG LET THE CAT OUT THE BAG!

DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER'S RACIST RANT -- CAUGHT ON TAPE!


Dog Chapman has been captured spewing foul-mouthed racist slurs on a tape obtained exclusively by The NATIONAL ENQUIRER.

And now a civil rights leader is calling for Dog's TV show to be removed from the airwaves.

In a shocking world exclusive The ENQUIRER has obtained tapes of two revolting phone conversations in which Duane "Dog" Chapman unleashes a filthy bigoted attack, littered with the N-word and other disgusting racial insults.

The star of the A&E reality show Dog, The Bounty Hunter directed his racist hatred at his son Tucker's girlfriend Monique Shinnery, who is black.

"Dog Chapman should not have a show. That show should be taken off the air!"

That's the opinion of prominent civil rights leader Roy Innis, who has served as the chairman of the Congress for Racial Equality (CORE) since 1968. Innis was shocked and outraged when The ENQUIRER played Dog Chapman's racist telephone conversations for him.

"This man should not be held up as a role model for children," Innis told The ENQUIRER. "He has venom deep in his soul. This is a picture of his heart — a revelation of his true nature.

Innis believes that cable network A&E needs to take swift action in response to Dog's vicious outburst.

"He needs to answer for his behavior," says Innis.

"When someone gets the opportunity to use the airwaves, he becomes a role model, whether he likes it or not. Dog Chapman should not be in that position, posing as a good guy.

"His comments show that he certainly is not a good guy."

Full details are in the new issue of the NATIONAL ENQUIRER.

Update: In response to this story, A&E network has released a statement saying: "A&E has just learned of the story released by the National Enquirer concerning Duane Dog Chapman. We take this matter very seriously. Pending an investigation, we have suspended production on the series. When the inquiry is concluded we will take appropriate action."

Listen to the audio tape:
