Horace Wimp's Forum Shoutbox
Timeblue: Love The Carpenters... Apr 13, 2019 12:37:27 GMT
eloneen: I love The Carpenters, too, but their version of the song is too proper to capture its spirit. The original by Hank Williams is great, but this one by local musicians is fab. Apr 13, 2019 15:56:42 GMT
vlogdance: Just wrote "midnight blue" in work. It's these little moments that make working on weekends worthwhile :D Apr 13, 2019 16:24:57 GMT
Helmut83: Great version, . The fiddler totally killed it. The guy on the harmonica did a great job too. Apr 14, 2019 20:04:16 GMT *
eloneen: The fiddler is Michael Doucet, leader of the Cajun band Beausoleil. They've been around for about 30 years and they're a lot of fun. I'm not as familiar with Lazy Lester, but he's talented, too, from what we can see in the video. Apr 14, 2019 21:41:42 GMT
eloneen: In the official lyrics to the song, it says fillet gumbo, but the reference is to filé gumbo ( filé = ground sassafras leaves, used to thicken and flavor the broth of that type of gumbo), which is delicious! I have some filé in my spice cabinet. Apr 14, 2019 21:46:14 GMT *
orioles70: you're making me hungry, - just finished filing my Mother's taxes (not a fun weekend activity), but on to better things Apr 14, 2019 21:56:30 GMT
eloneen: Hubby just finished our taxes, too. No money left now for gumbo, but I can offer you some leftover jambalaya! Kitchen's open! Pull up a chair and have some! ::t1103:: Apr 14, 2019 22:00:49 GMT *
eloneen: I just did a quick check on Wikipedia. Beausoleil's been around since the mid 1970s, making great music from the bayous! ::smileys-thumbs-951446:: Apr 15, 2019 1:19:57 GMT
eloneen: Notre Dame Cathedral is on fire. It looks like it will be completely destroyed. Such a tragedy! ::m1506:: Such an amazing, iconic structure being lost! :'( Apr 15, 2019 18:44:26 GMT
Horacewimp: It’s heartbreaking seeing the pictures of it on fire :'( Apr 15, 2019 18:45:53 GMT
vlogdance: People crying in the streets, says an eyewitness speaking to the BBC. An awful, shocking sight. Apr 15, 2019 19:34:39 GMT
vlogdance: (The fire, that is, not the Parisians - not surprised they're devastated.) Apr 15, 2019 19:35:17 GMT
unomusette: I thought it was some kind of spoof when I first saw it on Twitter, what a terrible tragedy :| Apr 15, 2019 20:16:56 GMT
BSJ: Catastrophic. Sickening. Apr 15, 2019 20:48:18 GMT *
Helmut83: What a pity. Those things are gone and gone forever. You can rebuild it all you want but the new parts won't have many centuries of history. Apr 15, 2019 21:47:20 GMT
eloneen: I've been to Paris about a dozen times, and I plan to go back this summer. Each time, I've stopped at Notre Dame. I'm glad I was able to take my son and some of my students to see Notre Dame while it was still standing. The city will never be the same. :'( Apr 15, 2019 22:20:12 GMT
eloneen: Right now it looks like Notre Dame is only partially destroyed. It remains to be seen how much of it is still structurally sound in the aftermath of this tragedy. Fortunately, no loss of human life. Apr 16, 2019 1:20:33 GMT *
orioles70: it's going to take decades to rebuild and some of the craftsmanship will be impossible to duplicate, on the other hand they could make it stronger and more fire resistant if they use modern building methods. Do they aim for an exact restoration or not? Apr 16, 2019 12:02:36 GMT
BIuebird: It's so devastatingly sad. :'( I hope they will be able to restore it. Apr 16, 2019 13:47:58 GMT
