“I” stories voting reminder and stuff

It’s been a few days since the “I” stories went up.

Therefore, ergo, thus, here’s a quick reminder to — if so inclined — please read the stories. After, if receptive to the idea, the writers hope you’ll make the effort and vote for your favorite of the “Alphabet Challenge I-Stories” HERE.

That post has links to the individual stories and the poll where readers can click a box to indicate their appreciation for their favorite. And, after voting, readers can spread the news about the story to friends and family. Maybe.

So, stuff . . . .

My sisters reminded me it was 54 years today that we (our family) came to the US. I  almost sang Neil Diamond’s Coming to America in celebration. Of course, we came by plane, not boat. Plus, I can’t sing worth a darn.

Anyway, this is a quick post because of stuff . . . so here’s a photo . . .

That “tufted” fellow is likely a juvenile House finch sticking close to its parent. I can’t confirm that, but that’s what I think. Unfortunately, the Internet let me down and I could not find similar juvenile photos (and I checked other likely birds, turning up nothing).

Not the same parent, but the same species . . .

It could be a parent, though, because it appears tired and nearly falling asleep.

More stuff . . .

One of the bloggers I follow (doesitevenmatter3, or diem3 for short) posted the following (I’d link her blog but it’s private):

The single has a five-track collection of multi-language duet versions, sung with several internationally acclaimed vocalists in their native tongue…including…

Zaz (“Appelle Ton Amour” – French Version)

Faouzia (“كنتحداك” –  Arabic Version)

Blas Cantó (“Te Reto A Amar” – Spanish Version)

Glasperlenspiel (“Trau Dich” – German Version)

and Maya Buskila (“בוא נראה”- Hebrew Version)

Here is the English version…

She posted it to bring some positivity into her reader’s lives . . . not a bad thing, that. Plus, the song is pretty good.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
