I do apologise if I miss replying to any of your comments, especially if you replied a few days after the day I posted. I still haven't got my LJ problem sorted and I still can't validate my account. I'm not getting any notifications in my message inbox about comment posts so I'm having to go checking back every day.

So... one of the things I cant do is send PMs. I don't know if I can receive them as I don't know if anyone has tried to send me one, but I haven't had any since Christmas Eve so I'm guessing not - if someone would like to try to send me one and let me know what happens that would be good thanks!
This is going to give me problems for the Balderdash game as part of the game is everyone sending me their definitions by PM.

Another thing I can't do is schedule posts. Well I can schedule them but then when they should have posted just say 'error' at the bottom of the page.

aimingtobefit kindly paid for my years paid journal, this time, as I didn't have any money before Christmas. I'm quite cross that I'm only just paying her back now and I'm already paying for something that hasn't worked now for between 10 and 13 days!

Does anyone have any suggestions about who else apart from support (which I seem to remember is just other LJ people) I can contact to try and get my problem sorted out?

4th-Jan-2017 01:13 pm - A song I like to clean the house to
Red
Recently, I've been listening to a lot of Eurovision radio podcasts while I've been cleaning my flat rather than my own music, but I do have a flat cleaning playlist on my mp3 player and this is one of the songs on the playlist.

Show Me Your Love sung by Tina Karol was the Ukrainian representative at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2006. The song was composed by Mikhail Nekrasov and Karol herself, with lyrics by 2005 host Pavlo Shyklo (aka DJ Pasha).

In the final, the song received 145 points, placing it 7th in a field of 24.

"Happy" was the most successful song of 2014, with 13.9 million units (sales plus equivalent streams) worldwide. It peaked at No. 1 in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and 19 other countries. It was the best-selling song of 2014 in the United States with 6.45 million copies sold for the year, as well as in the United Kingdom with 1.5 million copies sold for the year.

A song that I like to turn up really, really loud whenever I hear it -

Wah! was one of the many lineups from within which Pete Wylie operated (The Mighty Wah! started later in 1984). 'The Story Of The Blues - Part One' which was released in 1982 and reached number 3 in the UK single charts, became, by far, his biggest hit. It receives more air time than all his other compositions put together. The song is about standing up in the face of adversity, fighting off depression and not caving in to set backs. It was inspired by The Boys From The Black Stuff, a fictional TV series by Alan Bleasdale, which tells of social strife in Wylie's hometown of Liverpool in the late 1970s. On a personal front, the song also refers to Wylie's terminal disagreements with record company WEA over the direction and control of his material.

The first song I heard in 2017 -

Well actually, at midnight, the very first song I heard was Auld Lang Syne (but then you would expect to hear Auld Lang Syne at midnight wouldn't you!). But this is the first song I heard in 2017 that wasn't Auld Lang Syne. I was watching The Jools Holland Hogmany show and his guest after midnight was Chaka Khan singing I'm every woman.



"I'm Every Woman" was written by the successful songwriting team Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson and was produced by Arif Mardin. It appeared on Chaka Khan's debut solo studio album 'Chaka' in 1978. The single established Chaka's career outside of the group Rufus, whom she finally left in late 1979.

Whitney Houston would later cover the song in 1992 with production by David Cole and Robert Cliviles, turning it into a dance hit for a new generation.

What was the first song you heard in 2017?

Is or has anyone else had problems with LJ saying you need to validate your email address?

I've had it before and I just pressed the putton, they sent me an e-mail and it re-validated everything.

This time I'm not getting an e-mail, (tried it 4 times now over the last couple of days). I've checked my spam folder and its not there. The next option was to change my email address - which I really didn't want to do so I typed in the new address and the password and it keeps telling me that its an invalid password!

I've sent a message to technical support but until I hear something theres lots of features that I can't use! Which I have paid for I should add!


....So as I can't send PM's I want to say thank you here to moredetails for the labels you sent to me. They arrived today and are very pretty.

It's been a couple of months since I posted any music so this afternoon I'm posting the first song I heard when I woke up this morning on the 1st of August. This was being played my bedside radio.

This song reminds me of being in the junior school. It was the first and only time the headmaster played a record on the school record player during assembly. For the whole of my 5 years bar this one morning, the record player always sat unused on a shelf behind him and I remember being amazed that he had chosen to play that weeks number 1 record!

I remember clearly listening to this song but I have no idea what the message of his assembly was!

I would like to invite everyone to join balderdash_game. We are a nice friendly group who have fun playing balderdash on LJ. If you enjoy playing with words then have a look at the community and join us.

A new game has just been posted tonight, Sunday 26th June at 10pm GMT.

Balderdash is a game with 5 different rounds played over 5 weeks (words, dates, films, people and initials) The idea of the game is not actually to guess the real answer, although you get a point if you do, but to try to convince other people that your definition is the real definition.

The game only requires a definition to be sent in to me by PM between Sunday and Wednesday and a visit to the site between Thursday and Sunday to vote.

Anyone, whether a member of the community, a watcher or a non member, may vote in any game. Please join the group if you would like to join in the game and then send in a definition for a round - but please note that if you do send in a definition for a round you will need to be able to visit the community later in the same week (after Wednesday evening) to cast a vote. You can play just one week as and when you want to or you can play a full game, although all members at the moment play the full game.

As an example of how the game works, the first round in a new game is the 'word' round. I post a word on a Sunday evening, and players make up a definition and PM it to me. On Wednesday evening all the definitions, plus the real one, are posted and everyone has until Sunday night to vote for which one they think is the real answer. If someone votes for your definition you get a point and if you vote for the right answer you get a point. The person with the most points at the end of the five rounds is the winner of the game.

I have a right lot of catching up to do with reading everyones posts - I can see this taking me several days!!

This weeks new episode of Person Of Interest had a scene where Root, expecting to be killed says to Harold, "If the worst comes to pass, could you give Shaw a message?" to which Harold replies, "I think she already knows." On hearing this my ears pricked up and I thought what? have I missed something here? What was the message she wanted her to know? Are they hinting at something going on between them?

So I looked it up on the internet.....Unfortunately due to the writers dramatic writing and trying to be surprising, it turns out that when you look up whether the two of them are heading towards something together, it is unescapably linked to a major spoiler!! Damn!! If they hadn't written the two together, I would never have known what's about to happen and it would have still been a surprise to me!!!

Here are a couple of pictures I took in the church grounds on Sunday just before I went inside.


This is one of two little patches of flowers that are on either side of the church doors. They look really lovely as you walk down the path towards them -

I would like to invite everyone to join balderdash_game. We are a nice friendly group who have fun playing balderdash on LJ. If you enjoy playing with words then have a look at the community and join us.

A new game will be posted on Sunday 13th March at 10pm GMT.

Balderdash is a game with 5 different rounds played over 5 weeks (words, dates, films, people and initials) The idea of the game is not actually to guess the real answer, although you get a point if you do, but to try to convince other people that your definition is the real definition.

The game only requires a definition to be sent in to me by PM between Sunday and Wednesday and a visit to the site between Thursday and Sunday to vote.

Anyone, whether a member of the community, a watcher or a non member, may vote in any game. Please join the group if you would like to join in the game and then send in a definition for a round - but please note that if you do send in a definition for a round you will need to be able to visit the community later in the same week (after Wednesday evening) to cast a vote. You can play just one week as and when you want to or you can play a full game, although all members at the moment play the full game.

As an example of how the game works, the first round in a new game is the 'word' round. I post a word on a Sunday evening, and players make up a definition and PM it to me. On Wednesday evening all the definitions, plus the real one, are posted and everyone has until Sunday night to vote for which one they think is the real answer. If someone votes for your definition you get a point and if you vote for the right answer you get a point. The person with the most points at the end of the five rounds is the winner of the game.

So growing up, were you more a Beatles, the Monkees, Elvis, Michael Jackson or Springsteen fan? Or someone else entirely?

If you are over 45 -

Do you still have an LPs? How about 45's?

What the name of the oldest album you still own?

If you are under 45 -

What was the first CD you ever purchased? Do you still have it?

How do you stream your music these days?

I've just seen something really lovely that's made my day!

I was walking up the hydrangea and privet bush lined steps up the hill and just before I got to the path at the top, a young boy about 6 years old zipped past on his little scooter and out of sight. As I reached the top step and looked around the bushes and down the path to my left, to look where he had come from or to see if there was anyone with him. In the far distance I see a very, very elderly lady on a tiny scooter pushing herself very slowly along the path towards me. As I had arranged to meet a neighbour at that junction in the paths I had to wait there as she approached me scootering along slowly! I was really wanting to take a picture but obviously couldn't because it would have been rude of me! As she got close enough for me to see that it was a Bob the Builder scooter, she finally gave up, and picked the scooter up and carried it along the last bit of path.

She was really out of breath as she approached me and said to me "He said to me this morning 'Great granny, you need to do some exercises outside with me this morning!' I think they must have been teaching them about the importance of exercise at school this week! But I don't think he realises quite how old I am! I'm 92 in May"!

lol! I really hope that I'm still able to scooter on a kids plastic scooter outside when I'm 91!!
