We’re doing BBQ for lunch at work. I don’t want to join them, but I have to (to be polite). I just know there will be not enough food. We never have left-over. I usually leave the table with half full stomach. Anyway, I should eat something to fill me up before I join the BBQ.
When I was young, I saw Disco coming and going. Disco was an amazing era. Then 80’s music started to take shape.
During the early 80’s, some female singers tried to keep Disco alive. But it was not easy to sell Disco in the 80s when most people had enough of Disco. Still, there were a lot of underground Disco singers. Some of them were very popular at the clubs. Some became mainstream.
Trinere was the Goddess of underground Disco at that time. Only the club goers knew her. I still have a 12" record of this song. She stuck to her style, she never changed her style to sell more albums.
Trinere – How Can We Be Wrong
Expose became popular after being underground for a few years. I knew ‘Point of No Return’ for many years. Then, finally, radio stations started to play it. ‘Point of No Return’ was not very popular with general public. Then they changed their style to suite public’s taste. Expose became very popular with their next album. My favorite song is ‘Point of No Return’.
Stacey Q’s Two of Hearts was the hottest dance tune back in the 85. Radio station would play Two of Hearts over and over. Stacy Q looked so cheesy, but we didn’t have access to her music video, so it didn’t matter.
We also had Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, and Paula Abdule; but they all had mainstream (watered down) sound. They were not true to Disco.
In the late 80’s Taylor Dayne dropped the bomb with "Tell it To My Heart". This song came out like a rocket. We were all blown away. ‘Tell It To My Heart’ satisfied both club goers and general public.
This song pretty much marked the end of female Disco era.
I try to keep my website secret to my neighbors, so I don’t have to watch what I say.
I have a reason to believe one of my neighbors is a prostitute. I think she has a client-based sex business going on. Or she happened to have a lot of guy friends. Or there could be an innocent explanation.
I hated Valentine’s Day all my life, because it’s so stressful. It’s the day that society created so people would spend money.
Then I thought about it… if you are stressed, then something is wrong. So what if Valentine’s Day is commercialized? I can spend small amount of money and have fun. The secret is to have a date (spouce) who shares the same life-style. Then there should be no stress.
I went to Ralphs and spent very little money. I bought just one stem of rose for $5.99. I also bought a chocolate and a card. I think I spent less than $15.00 total. I didn’t go to any fancy store. So, there was absolutely no stress.
Oh, then I couldn’t find my vase. So, I had to keep the rose in the coffee pot.
99 Cents only store is not just for poor people. Yes I wouldn’t buy most of the products they sell. But, I frequently find good stuff at 99 Cents Only Stores.
For example, below is from January 2011.
I bought 4 Coca Cola cups – Look at them, they are adorable. They are genuine Coca Cola products made in The USA.
I also bought 8 boxes of Wasa flat-breads. They normally go for $3 or more at world market & etc.. I love their new rosemary flat bread.
If you watch your diet, then check out WASA products. Some flat breads have 0 fat and very low Calories.
I like 99 Cents Only Stores for providing low priced products to people who cannot afford expensive stuff. Several years ago, I bought most of my stuff from 99 Cents Only Stores. Who cares if they look ugly. I simply couldn’t afford anything else.
To me, 99 Cents Only Store will always be the big brother who helped me out when the time was tough. They are still one of my favorite stores.
Here’s my salute to 99 Cents Only Stores and good people who work there.
