Eartha Kitt Jan. 17, 1927 - Dec. 26, 2008

I doubt that I could pick just one song to think of Eartha Kitt, but C'est si Bon is the first one that comes to mind...

Yesterday, the rain began; today the air has that crystalline freshness when you breathe...

But what's that on the mountains to the East? Whoa! It's snow! It looks a lot nicer off in the distance, than dripping through my roof...

Maybe I can create a makeshift marimba with all the empty coffee cans catching the leaks!

Another hurricane season, come and gone

Bush is still 50 days away from officially handing over the keys for White House to Barack Obama, but the President-Elect is sounding more presidential every day.

I might say that Obama sounds without a doubt more presidential than his predecessor, but that might be rubbing it in. No need to point out the obvious. I mean, I wouldn't want to come off as cruel as, well, them (you know who you are).

Still, the quietness of the day seems to give a chance for the opportunity to look at other things... the day Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus, Bette Midler's birthday, and the official end of the hurricane season. As World AIDS Day events unfold around the country, Miami coming to the end of yet another White Party Week. And there's still some stuffing left in the fridge!
