Sculpture of a Miner at Ellington Northumberland by Tom Maley

So I put my hands up, they're playin' my song

The butterflies fly away

I'm noddin' my head like "Yeah!"

Movin' my hips like "Yeah!"

 

Got my hands up, they're playin' my song

And now I'm gonna be okay

Yeah! It's a party in the USA!

Yeah! It's a party in the USA!.

Well another Friday night and thanks to my son going to work for a few hours I get a little time to myself to indulge in a little bit of fun.

I must thank Elaine who suggested that perhaps the next time I wear a red dress that I wear red lipstick. I have been wary about wearing bright red lipstick because it sometimes left a residue. However, I bought number 540 from the new Rimmel range this afternoon and decided to give it another go. Well, I can report no problems with it and it came off and did not leave my lips dayglo red. I should point out that it was only on for about an hour at best before I had to remove it.

A educed gravity aircraft is a type of fixed-wing aircraft that provides brief near-weightless environments for training astronauts, conducting research and making gravity-free movie shots.

 

Versions of such airplanes, officially nicknamed Weightless Wonders,[1] have been operated by the NASA Reduced Gravity Research Program.[2] The unofficial nickname "vomit comet" became popular among those who experienced their operation.

Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington (April 29, 1899 – May 24, 1974) was an American composer, pianist, and big-band leader. Ellington wrote over 1,000 compositions. He earned the nickname "Duke" as a child for his gentlemanly ways. He is major figure in the history of jazz. He was able to keep his band together during the great depression because of his popularity. He was a leading musical figure during the Harlem Renaissance and played at the world renowned cotton club. On May 24, 1974, at the age of 75, Duke Ellington died of lung cancer and pneumonia. His last words were, "Music is how I live, why I live and how I will be remembered". Ellington got a Pulitzer Prize posthumously, commemorating the centennial year of his birth, in recognition of his musical genius, which evoked aesthetically the principles of democracy through the medium of jazz and thus made an indelible contribution to art and culture. His portrait is on the Washington, D.C. quarter released in 2009. Duke Ellington is the greatest composer of this century. be sure to check me out on fackbook here: www.facebook.com/ericfrancisart?bookmark_t=page

Taken through a gap in the hedge in Ellington when driving back from Cresswell in Northumberland, I liked the simple contrast between the colour of the sky and the recently cut crop in the field.

An old trainner that needs a little work.
