I'm impressed. I don't know enough about jazz to play. Regardless, is nice to see you after not stopping by for so long. I am a terrible blogger. Hope you'll forgive me.

Hey, if you're interested, I'm doing a giveaway - a memoir and a comedy DVD. Celebrating stuff.

Hope you're doing well. *huggies* (a/k/a Rhonda)

Thanks For Saving My Life is a song that doesn't get nearly enough airplay these days. I also like Swing Out Sister... Twilight World is one of my favorite tunes.
