Three questions:

1. What is this song talking about? I mean the chorus, not the verses.

2. Do you know any other songs on the same topic?

3. Do you need more cowbell?

Hopefully, tomorrow’s hearings will pull Obama and Hillary spang into the middle of the Benghazi brouhaha.

Achy, breaky. I’ve got pains where there are no reasons for pains. The whole leg aches. Should move around more.

Anybody who tells you that this operation is “easy” never had it, or is lying. My best hope is that it is like childbirth — the mind lets you forget after a few months.

Yes, the band specializes in odd. Quirky little happy songs. They play with 2 strings on the bass and 3 on the guitar.

But do you get it?

It could have been the word Wayne and Garth used instead of “schwing!,” but it wasn’t.

have they given you PT exercises to do at home? i am finding that the PT really is helping with my muscle issue. i think it's important to do those exercises they give you, even if it hurts, to build yourself back up to be able to walk normally. i will finally see my orthopod today. was your orthopod cute? because mine is a very nicelooking guy about my age. I asked my best friend who is a gynecologist if all the best looking guys going into orthopedics and she said definitely! it's uncanny. Every orthopod i've ever met has been attractive. i had one a few months back in this same practice for a cortisone shot in my shoulder and he was drop dead gorgeous but young enough to be my kid.

Spang

Spang is like something wavy, spanghetti, spangled banner, to spang as punishment, or the sound of buttons coming off a cheap suit.

is it needing a bath of hellfire, or purgatory in order to purge oneself of sin/dirt?

Easily. The lyrics in both songs are random and make no sense. If the intent of the writer is stream-of-consciousness banter, then the songs are on the same topic.

Stevens: “We need help now, spang!”
As Benghazi explodes with a bang
But Hillary and Barry
Uncaring, unwary
Weren’t there when their panic phones rang

Now to get coffee - if I can manage to stop focusing on that haunting chorus for a few minutes.

I wonder how long before the auto-tune remix is released like Sweet Brown “Ain’t nobody got time for that” and the “Hide yo wife, hide yo kids, they rapin’ everybody up in there” interviews.

Are you talking about the orthopedist, or the PTs?

I'll raise you one Rory Wright, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon.

He's about 6'5" -- maybe 6'7". He looks like he's 22, but he's much older because he has been a favorite doctor around here for years and owns his own hospital. If he really were only 22 (which he is NOT) he could be my grandson!

But, I don't see him that often. I see the PTs 3 times a week. I admit that I'm not too faithful about daily exercise. I do it when I think about it. Most of my daily excise is derives from things I have to do. As my PT says, the body has unlimited ways to cheat.

Your Dr. Avery looks like Congressman Trey Gowdy from SC.

I was shocked the other night to see Gowdy on an episode of "The New Detectives" back when he was a prosecuter. It's like discoving Fred Thompson in an old movie. I saw Thompson on an episode of Matlock recently.

He does look a bit like him. Ill keep dr Avery thanks. Though he’s not the hip doc, he does shoulders. My PTs are all pregnant women, oddly enough! I’m seeing the doc who replaced my hips today.

I have a man and a woman PT. They are both good. I think the woman is the lead PT. At least I see her the most often.

I chose Dr. Wright for his record and his bedside manner, not his looks. However, most of the women who recommended him liked his looks — LOL. As one of them said, “When you are going through such a brutal surgery, it’s nice to waide up to somebody good looking.” My previous surgeon had a couple of cases on his record where the knees came apart several months into recovery. I don’t need that.

Good luck today. Let us know what happens.

North Spain had rain for 41 of the 43 days I was overseas, snow on the last weekend of April.

... Got back home to NW GA ....And more rain since then. Global warming? Well, it’s a whopping 1/10 of one degree warmer this spang than it was in 1970. 43 years of global warming = 0.10 degree hotter?

Thanks. Commonwealth Orthopedic is the official Orthopaedic group/PT of the Redskins. They have a surgical group and a PT facility as well. The surgeons specialize in a specific body part. Because the hlps were recalled by the MFR, they have had a few re-dos but not many.

since you are you-tubing it up today, this is my new fave song. Shakira is Colombian, and this has a distinct cumbia beat. She is half Lebanese which accounts for the pelvic thrusting, belly dancer moves. She is 34, and has a 24 yo baby daddy who plays for Real Madrid. She gave birth in January and still looks pretty good. Alejandor Sanz, who sings with her and is in the video, is from Spain, and i was stunned to see he's at Constitution Hall tonight. If it wasn't pouring i'd make xshub take me, bc i think he's hot.

I crashed my car into a bridge and I don't care

They are using this song as an ad for a site called Shoe Dazzle. I don't get it, and I don't like it. I hate the image for impressionable teens. I think I'm a fuddy duddy, but our kids are so vulnerable. Shoe Dazzle will get no business from me.
