Samantha of Samanthamurdochblog nominated us for the  “The Shuffle The Music Tag” and we thank you, Samantha, for thinking of us.  Granted she nominated us in August and us lazy ones are just getting around to posting now.  Glad Samantha never held her breath waiting for our response.

We are sharing with you our playlist……actually its Kali’s playlist on the computer.  I turn the music on when Kali gets uptight with whatever pains she’s currently enduring.  Kali is very fond of all of these songs as she becomes mellow and relaxes.  Seeing these are her songs, she can guide us through them.  Take it away, Kali.

For “The Shuffle The Music Tag” just put whatever device you use to listen to your music on, and press the shuffle button, and write a little something about the first fifteen songs that come up, what they mean to you, their history, whatever takes your fancy.  We will be doing 10 songs.  Then nominate seven or more people to participate, obviously letting them know.

 

I use the computer and *I Tunes* so mom shuffled my music.

1/ The first song up is I Guess The Lord Must Be In New York City by Harry Nilsson.  This song has relaxing lyrics and the tempo is perfect for drying nail polish on my toes.  Granted occasionally I swing my paws over the side of my Princess Bed as the tune is so catchy.  All in all a soothing song.                                                           Sorry, the sun is blocking my paw but my nails are drying faster. mol

2/ Ferry Cross the Mersey by Gerry and the Pacemakers

This song is so relaxing that if I get upset, this song has me clapping my paws and mellowing with sleepy eyelids.  Mom was saying that these chaps played at many of the spots in England that the Beatles did.  Well, I’ll be a bug!                                                

3/ Somewhere My Love…Lara’s Theme from Dr. Zhivago Al Martino

Mom thinks I like this song but it makes me feel so cold as the peeps struggled so hard in this movie.  It’s a great song for those hot summer days. Cools off the warmest of days.

4/ Everybody’s Talkin’ At Me by Harry Nilsson

Typical Harry Nilsson song with soothing sounds from a powerful voice.  This song was featured in Midnight Cowboy with Jon Voight.

5/ Gonna Get Drunk and Be Somebody by Toby Keith

Mew, mew….this song is great when I’m feeling down cause my paws are hurting so I feel very unimportant.  The upbeat sounds of this song make it so I can’t be down for long….I want to get up and investigate a drawer and try to find some nip.                                                           

6/ Digging up Bones by Randy Travis

This song reminds me of all my woofie friends and their favourite pass time.  It would be neat to bury one’s treats and come back later to retrieve them.  Unfortunately, I have this thing about dirt. I will not eat anything with dirt all over it.  It’s a very icky habit.  Shoko eats things she buries but not moi.

7/ The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald by Gordon Lightfoot

A terrible plight for these sailors out on Lake Superior or Lake Gitchee Gumee  To me, this is not relaxing but Gordon Lightfoot has a great voice and mom likes the song.

8/ Canadian Girls by Dean Brody

This is a song just for us Canadian girls, Shoko, mom and me.  It makes me feel happy with its upbeat music.  I want to dance but Shoko’s a terrible dancer….always stepping on my paws.                                                  

She looks good but watch those spikes….they hurt like hell-o!

9/ Blue Canadian Rockies by Jim Reeves

This song drives me crazy!  I love this guy’s voice.  He makes the sun shine in my heart when he sings to me.  What a voice…..if only my Buddy could sing like him.*sigh*                                           

Isn’t he somethin’? hehe.

10/  Moon River by Andy Williams

This is my very favourite song!  I could just float away on the words.  I can just picture Moon River as blue as can be without an insect or reptile in it.  Just cruising along the river in a paddlewheeler with  Buddy holding my paw. *Aha, sigh*  I know it’s supposed to be the Mississippi River and that’s so muddy that your shadow will have dirt on it…..forget all that just go with the sweet music and the illusion you get.

There you have it, friends.  My playlist and a hot one it is too.  I have more songs on it but this will give you an idea of my favourites.

We’re supposed to nominate 7 peeps/kitties for The Music Tag.  I am reluctant because I would like to hear everybody’s idea of good music.  Phenny of Easy Blog...oh Phenny, tell me your playlist, Bacon from Piglove….bring it on bud.  May I say that anyone else that wishes to do the playlist, please let us know so we can admire your songs.

MOM…..RED VIOLET
KALI…..ORANGE
                                                           

Shopping Around The World…March Edition

This month Phenny from Easy Blog  is offering Shopping Around The World for Bacon of Piglove blog.  Aside from putting down the prices we are suppose to make up a delicious sweet and tasty dessert.                                                                       

We decided to do one of our more challenging pies with our friends. We are not a dessert family unless we buy it. Then look out we can gobble down sweets like your average turkey.  Our pie is Key Lime Pie and it is delicious.

All items purchased at The Real Canadian Superstore.

You will need a graham cracker pie crust.

A 9 inch graham cracker pie crust is $3.48                                                                                

A box of Key Lime Pudding

A 25 gram box  $3.97                                                                               

Two eggs

a dozen large eggs $2.25 so 2 eggs will be $0.40                                                                

Can of Whipping Cream…light  hehe

225 grams $3.52                                                                                 

There….you are armed and dangerous.  I’m just supervising mom to see how she messes up. MOL

INSTRUCTIONS:

1/ First we take the pie shell and brush the two egg whites that have been whisked together on the inside of the crust.   Then put the crust into a preheated oven at 350F for five minutes

.

2/  Take the Key Lime pudding and mix according to the recipe.  You will be using your left over yolks here.  Follow the recipe on the package of pudding.  After making the pudding wait for a few minutes to see if it is thickening.

3/  Meanwhile your pie crust is ready and you should cool it off while your pudding is thickening.

4/  Pour your key lime pudding into the graham cracker pie crust when both are cool.                                                                                
5/ Refrigerate the pie and filling for 2 hours.                                                                     Ta Da…done.  Enjoy!

A nice decoration on the Key Lime Pie is a sprig of nip or a small duck that quacks out the virtues of sweets.

May your pie not have a fur coat but
if it does braid the fur and chow down.
