Song Dedication (Celine Dion: "Fly")

I'd like to take a moment to play this song in memory and honor of our dearly departed Casey and Molly (as well as every other lost family member and friend.)


Fly, fly, little wing
Fly beyond imagining

The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heaven's love
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world of ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again

Fly, fly precious one
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far too beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forevermore
But hold this mem'ry bittersweet
Until we meet

Fly, fly do not fear
Don't waste a breath, don't shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don't wait for me
Above the universe you'll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But I won't forget

Fly, fly little wing
Fly where only angels sing
Fly away, the time is right
Go now, find the light

Casey: (adopted) 10/5/01~9/10/10

"I know you can't stay,
But part of you will never, ever go away;
Your heart will stay.,,"
~Jordan Hill

"When you lose someone you love they never really leave you. They just move into a special place in your heart."
"I don't want him in my heart;I want him here with me."
~Victor Frankenstein (Frankenweenie)

"If only tears could bring you back to me,
If only love could find a way...
What I would do, what I would give, if you'd
Return to me, someday, somehow, some way....
If my tears could bring you back to me."
~Midnight Sons 


"Energy does not die; I have only changed form. 
I will always be with you."

"It came to me that every time I lose a dog,
they take a piece of my heart with them....
And every new dog who comes into my life
Gifts me with a piece of their heart.
If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog--
And I will become as generous and loving as they are."


I still run, I still swing open the door;
I still think you'll be there like before

"So long, old friend,
I wish that I could see once again.
I never knew, the time would come
When I'd be losing you.

I hope you know I never meant 
To treat you badly...
And now I know just what a friend like you is for.
I never thought that it would end so sadly,
And you'd be walking through that door...

So long old friend,
I wish that I could see once again.
I never knew, the time would come
When I'd be losing you.

I always thought our fun and games would just
Go on and on....
I never knew I'd have to long...
~"Here Comes Garfield" ("Garfield and Friends")

"There must be something more to us than you and me;
It must be tangled up somehow with destiny.
I used to think the sum of one and one was two,
But we add up to more, me and you.
I don't know how to say the things I'm thinking of,
But the something more I'm feeling must be love."
~Charlotte's Web (1973)

*Try to leave enough unfrosted space on back of doughnut hole to be able to handle it with minimal mess.
*Pinch marshmallow slices to see if you can make them more bunny ear- and flower petal-like. I think this test one I made resembles a mouse, since I only pinched a little.

Are You Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, or Miranda?

You Are Miranda

You are down to earth and no nonsense. You don't suffer fools gladly.

You've been accused of being a workaholic, but you can't help it... you like to be productive.

You are competitive, and you love to win. You've even been known to compete with the men you date.

You need a man strong enough to stand up to you - that's the only way you'll respect him!

(Hardly a foreign film, buuuut....I think this blog may as well be used for something now that the course is over.)

I think I'm a Miranda-Carrie-Charlotte-Samantha, in that order...
