Have A Happy Birthday Umma

When you're down and troubled
And you need a helping hand
And nothing, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
You've got a friend

If the sky above you
Should grow dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind should begin to blow
Keep your head together
And call my name out loud, yeah
Soon I'll be knocking at your door

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running, oh yes I will
To see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Ain't it good to know that you've got a friend
When people can be so cold
They'll hurt you, and desert you
And take your soul if you let them
Oh yeah, but don't you let them

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there, yes I will.

You've got a friend
You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again (oh baby don't you know)
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
Lord, I'll be there yes I will.
You've got a friend

Oh, you've got a friend.
Aint it good to know you've got a friend.
Aint it good to know you've got a friend.
You've got a friend.

A Christmas Gift

I know how to play guitar since elementary because I love to listen to music. My cousins who lived with us always play music on the radio and I get used to it. One day, they brought guitar and started a singing session. I just watched them play the guitar and I would sing with them too. When they are not using it, I tried to sneak around and play it with the help of a guitar chords guide. That was the start and strumming the guitar is just one of my hobbies as I grew up. The best way to learn guitar is constant practice. My husband saw my enthusiasm whenever I saw it on display. He first noticed it when we were in Hard Rock as I took pictures in all the display at the lobby. I was just delighted to see the real guitar of the famous artist like the Bee Gees. My husband bought me a new guitar as one of my Christmas presents. He told me in advance because he ordered it online and it is on the way for delivery. I was so excited knowing that I have an acoustic guitar soon. This Christmas gift reminds me of my happy childhood memories.

Charice Sang Sharon Medley

I am a fan of Sharon Cuneta in fact when I was in High School, I became a President in a Sharon-Gabby Fan Club in Cagayan de Oro City under DXCL Station. Wheww! Those were the days that my inspiration in studies molded with music, Sharon Cuneta, Lea Salonga, Menudo and Walt Disney. I had a smile on my face right now reminiscing those moments of my life. I did reach out my dreams, not all yet but, the milestones of my life is good. Thanks to the music that inspired me. Today, I was browsing my Apple iPOD and I happen to listen to Charice Pempengco, a World Class Filipino talent.

I was just blown away with the talent of Charice Pempengco. She sang Sharon Cuneta's Collection of music and I was very amazed with the arrangements. Her version was remarkable! The voice , oh well, just listen -----& WONDERFUL!
If I will be blessed with a child, that baby will turn to be a singer, hehehe. Enjoy the music. If you do not understand, the melody will guide you through.

Fogs in Ocean Springs

After work, the road on the way home look like the pictures below. What time was these pictures taken? It's 7:35 in the morning in Biloxi and Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Yesterday, the rain was pouring hard with strong thunder. It was really scary when we were on the bridge because the lighting was bad. We can't see the Isle Casino or the Palace Casino from the foot of the bridge.
Nearby places had a flood warning but thankfully, everything was alright. Morning comes, heavy fogs. Oh by the way, how bad was it last night? Pretty bad! You can't see the road because the rain will really blinded you. So, my husband decided that we will drive slow but, there were few cars zooming passed us. As if no mishap could happen to them. Unluckily, 1 car turn right and dive into the canal, probably miscalculated the turn. The canal was probably 3ft. high and I saw a person inside still, can't get out. I dialed 911 and my husband reported the incident to the dispatcher. We had no time to stop really. The traffic is heavy, rain is pouring hard and all we could do was call. In less than 3 minutes, we saw an ambulance and police cars rushing towards the area. The person was alright, we guess. The rescue was fast and by the time my husband drove back, the car was pulled from the canal already. The incident happened across the street of Ocean Springs Hospital anyway.
Then 6 blocks away, another car submerged in the canal. There was nobody on it and we bet, the accident happened earlier. That was our enduring journey last night on my way to work.
In the morning, wearing my Saints Jersey here (blurred), I enjoyed the fogs. Cold? Not at all! I wonder why it was not cold?HMMM.
The pictures looks like night time, right? According to the forecast, in the afternoon there will be heavy rain and it did! Nasty Rain.
