Women and Wine

It was reported Today on Today
A glass or two of red wine everyday
Is not a bad thing to do for you, hey-hey
And the report had the anchors of Today on
The network which hosts Tina Fey say, "hey-hey"

Woman and wine - of course, they're both fine
...yeah, so why not have them both everyday
and make everybody else look and think, "hey-hey"

Well some of the best women of the time drink wine...
and some of the best times I ever had were with wine
It's not a bad thing for you to do - a glass or two per day
drinking wine everyday makes women sing, "hey-hey"
And what's wrong with women taking time to sing songs
Having a laugh or cry - taking time for a glass of red a day

Some of the best talks I ever had were with some wine
and some of the best lines ever written were with wine
and some of the most mighty fine women drink red wine
So go get a bottle or two or three and drink some everyday
Careful just to uncork one per day like the good doctors' say
There's nothing wrong with two glasses and song everyday
Uncorking a bottle as a past-time & watching women unwind
is like drinking a reserved vintage aged with care and time
The descriptions of taste and character - velvety; full bodied
Adjectives & adverbs used to describe both fine women & wine

I enjoy them both all the time --- at least two everyday ---
--- Just like those good doctors' say, "hey-hey" --- hey-hey

No More Bones for You

the cognac bottle is half full
so that means i'm half empty

i don't care about you
(is it true)

i don't care about you
(is it true)

i don't care about you
(is it true)

you can't handle everyday
and i never really did anyway

i've come to realize
it's not in your eyes

it's better to be treated
by way better than you

maybe you're there in the morn
but, for me --- you're out of view

i don't care about you
(is it true)

i don't care about you
(is it true)

i don't care about you
(is it true)

no more bones for you.

(& i'm not talk'n 'bout my dog)

the Power of a Daydream

the machines are fully going
birds are flying and singing
can feel my heart beating
monring light is forgiving
lets me be me in daydream
doesn't mind my bed-head
try & find the day's ryhthm
timing isn't everything but
still it sure helps out a lot...
gotta do what you do to get
want to get there & be in-tune
preparations, superstitions -
the things you do as ritual
such as dream a daydream

would Einstein be Einstein
w/out dreaming a day dream

would Mick Jagger be Mick
w/out dreaming a day dream

would Warren Buffet be King
w/out living in a day dream

it's all or nothing and not
non-productive so daydream

it's all or nothing and not
non-productive so daydream

it's all or nothing and not
non-productive so daydream

Jamie Colby

"the Fox den"

CNN ...

These women of CNN are so articulate and portray such professionalism and also happen to be so Smoking Red Hot ---

If articulate and portraying such professionalism were mirrors, I'd be inside them ...

...all the way from 48th & 6th...

Kiran Chetry = A++++++++++++

Riveting Robin Meade

Kate Bolduan

HOT Heidi Collins

Brianna Keilar

Betty Nguyen

Christi Paul

Brooke Baldwin

Susan Hendricks

Shep: "I don't know, Mr. French - But you disgust me! Even though you enjoy support from a lot of people of the everyday media (nationwide) - and even though more progressive thinking of this channel rely on viewers who watch us and give us ratings to write-in and give us feedback --- Please refrain from writing into my show everyday and saying how hot Megyn Kelly and Jane Skinner are."

In Shep's Defense: He didn't say that and has been cool w/ me and has shown support --- Someone did say something similar but they were from a small (and had a small minded dinosaur mentality) station = not from the big time = (where I always have enjoyed support)!!!
