"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

The Grammy's

REHAB - Amy Winehouse won big!

Even though the song cracks me up - and she does too - I really like it a lot. I'm guessing she will probably die young if rehab doesn't work. God help her.


  1. I was just thinking what an unfortunate use of the word "cracks" when applied to someone with a propensity to use and abuse illegal narcotics.

    Hope rehab works for her.

  2. I just love Amy..what do you think of Robbie over on my blog?

  3. Tagged you for a meme Terry:)

    Go to my (pink) blog for the rules if you care to participate.

    Happy Monday to you!

  4. Yay for Amy! She is incredibly talented even if she spends 23 and a half hours a day completely wasted. She has a cool name too - the same as my daughter's.

  5. Saw her this am on tivo---unique, I hope she's okay.

    Is Alicia Keyes unbelievable? I have her "No One" set as my cell phone ring tone----that embarrasses the children, but really, if I could sing, that'd be me singing those exact words to God---when I tell the children that, they really think I'm crazy. :>

    And the Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli duet---beautiful.

  6. Jackie - I like Robbie very much. I'm serious about liking Amy too.

    SF - Alicia Keyes was fantastic, although I really wanted Mary J. to win - got a soft spot for her.

    Tom - I see the irony - I'm praying for her.

    Deb - I think she may have been doing something when she was on last night - she is such a talent - I hope the drugs do not get the best of her.

    Rhaps - I'll check it out! Thanks.

  7. yeah, put me in for $20 on the amy winehouse death pool.

  8. I must be getting old 'cuz I have no idea who Amy Winehouse is.

  9. As a hometown thing, I would've liked to hear the Time actually do an entire song before they were pushed to the side by Rihanna. So much for a reunion. Blah!

    Alica Keys rocked and so did the Groban/Bocelli duet. Also was surprised that Rhapsody in Blue wasn't chopped to 15 seconds!

  10. I know Rhapsody in Blue was well done! I was disapointed how the Time was cut short too.

    The Gospel music was great.

  11. Who the hell is Amy Winehouse? How come she can't get a visa to get into the United States?

    Is that a requirement for awards these days?

    Remember the Oscar winning child molester, Polanski, who hasn't been in the U.S. since the 80s or so because of his dalliance with a 14 (or so) year old girl? He'd be arrested and do some hard time, that's why.

    I wonder how popular he would have been with Hollywood had he been a priest?

    Ray, I had to look Winehouse up on Wiki cuz I didnt' know who she was, either. There I found a couple samples of her music. To me, she sounds like the black women singers from the 50s and 60s. I guess that's her schtick. She has a cool look, and a very strong voice, but not my type of music. I look at her and expect to hear something like the B-52s and instead get Aretha Franklin--ick.

  13. Georgette - I loved the B-52's and Aretha. What's wrong with me? LOL!

    Nothing wrong with ya, Ter, your musical tastes are more universal/eclectic, is all. I'm just still stuck in my college days.
