Time--2017 A to Z Theme

My theme for the 2017 Blogging from A to Z April Challenge was "Time". The posts are of a more philosophical, contemplative, and even autobiographical bent. No time management tips in this theme, but stuff intended to make you think.

Always a work in progress--welcome to my blog...

What Happened (with #BOTB)


          Sometimes we just have to weather storms whether we like it or not...

           If you're looking for my #IWSG post then you can find it here.   But if you're just here to see what I've posted today then don't expect too much.  I had plenty to  say, but don't feel like saying much of anything today.  So let's get down to the main business I'm here for.


Battle of the Band Results




         Mine was the only BOTB post for the 1st of the month.   I'll do another next month and assess the future of first day of the month BOTB posts.  We'll see what happens after that.

          The current Battle was between two flood themed songs--"The Flood" by Take That and "Flood" by Jars of Clay.   This contest was a slam dunk for the better known Jars of Clay.  Having listened many times to the Take That song I really began to like it.  Still, like the majority of voters, I had to go with Jars of Clay.

Final Tally

Take That              3

Jars of Clay          12


 Next Battle on Friday September 15th

        I might post something before then.  I thought I knew what my next Battle was going to be, but now maybe I've changed my mind.   Guess we'll find out later.

    1. Birgit, those 3 were worthy votes, but the other votes made for winning votes.

    1. Susan K., I've been out of the Loop ever since I moved away from the Chicagoland area (a Chicago "joke").

  3. Lee,

    I went with Jars of Clay this round but I really like Take That. In fact, I'm going to feature this group in tomorrow's post. Most of their mewsic is okay but I really like the song you introduced me to in this battle. I used a website that can convert YouTube files to media files and saved it on my computer. It's not high quality but it's good for listening to through my computer speakers and it saves me a ton of money. :) I'll have a BoTB post ready next time. Have a good day, my friend!

  4. I was one of the three voting for Take That. I'm surprised to see so few people voted for it.

    1. Carrie-Anne, I also was surprised to see Take That get so many fewer votes as I thought they might be more known to more people.
