The Little Willies - For the good times #MUSIC
Music, Norah Jones, Album, 2012, Good Times, Country
The Little Willies - Lee Alexander (bass), Jim Campilongo (guitar), NORAH JONES (piano, vocals), Richard Julian (guitar, vocals) and Dan Rieser (drums) - first formed in 2003 as an excuse for the five friends to spend a night playing music together at The Living Room on New York's Lower East Side, but the gig proved too fun for both the musicians and audience for it to remain a one-off.
Love this CD, it is a band Norah Jones started back in 2003. This is their newly released album! Awesome!
Four friends, Lee Alexander on bass, Jim Campilongo on guitar, Norah Jones on piano and vocals, and Richard Julian on guitar and vocals of The Little Willies put their own unique spin on classic country songs that were made famous by such names as Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn, and Dolly Parton.
Toe tappin' country tunes with Norah Jones, Jim Campilongo, Lee Alexander, Dan Rieser, and Richard Julian.

Celebrity in Death by J.D. Robb JD (aka Nora Roberts) does it again! Love the book. Can't wait to see what Eve Dallas, Rourke, and the rest get into next. Eve is a heroine you can get into to. A Strong Woman who can take care of herself and others too!

Just picked up the paperback - time for a reread! So lucky! Celebrity In Death: One of the most prolific authors out there, JD Robb (Nora Roberts) IN DEATH series is gritty, twisted and always satisfying.
# 43 Celebrity in Death (2012) Lieutenant Eve Dallas is no party girl, but she's managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating The Icove Agenda, a film based on one of her famous cases. It's a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks almost like her long-lost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing the actress who plays Peabody drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the director's luxury building. Now she's at the center of a crime scene...

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks - Rebecca Skloot - One of the most amazing books I have ever read!
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. Most intriguing non-fiction I have ever read.
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, a fascinating true story that weaves together modern science, ethics, and a small piece of American Black history.
The cancer cells harvested without consent from Henrietta Lacks, a tobacco farmer who lay dying in the "colored" ward of Johns Hopkins Hospital in 1951, led to one of the most imporant medical breakthroughs in modern medicine. Now, a Tennessee mother is objecting to author Rebecca Skloot's telling of that story in The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, calling the bestselling book "pornographic" and seeking to have it banned from local schools.
Local mom objects to controversial book on summer reading list: this bestseller details the true story of a poor black woman who had a sample of her cells taken for research in 1951 without her knowledge or consent, while she was in the hospital with cervical cancer. Those cells have led to major medical breakthroughs. The book addresses issues of medical ethics and race inequality. It also contains themes of infidelity and violence, and some local parents say it's unsuitable for teens.

could being bilingual make you smarter? Seems like it gives your brain a better workout. Currently taking all classes in spanish and it is rocking my world
A study of preschoolers found that bilinguals are more adept at certain mental puzzles because knowing more than one language flexes "cognitive muscles." Read more about the benefits of bilingualism in this article from The New York Times.

New York Times: The Benefits of Bilingualism - "SPEAKING two languages rather than just one has obvious practical benefits in an increasingly globalized world. But in recent years, scientists have begun to show that the advantages of bilingualism are even more fundamental than being able to converse with a wider range of people.
