(*) Lemon Eats Cow

I've been downloading music again... I go through fits and spurts of doing it... my last major spurt was about this time last year [when I stop to think about it?] Maybe it's this cold chilly wet snowy weather that somehow encourages searching for music online? Who knows! heh heh

This weekend I finally got around to find and make a CD of Miles Davis 1970's CD album, "Bitches Brew". Wow... this is really really good, BUT - it's VERY weird stuff! I appreciate what they're trying to do... I'll give it some time to 'grow' on me.

Another CD was The Finn Bros [ie. Neil and Tim Finn... Split Enz/Crowded House] 1995 solo album, simply called "Finn". I always enjoy their poppy stuff, even if most of this album is rather dark in a funny way.

And a third was "The La's" punkish pop-rock! I really like this one! I've been waiting for a time to find and download these albums for a few months now. Now I have, I kinda thought, "Ahh, I've run out of things I want to find to listen to!" I mean, my music CD collection is upto about 400 titles at the moment! BUT... yesh yesh, there's always more things to find. I had another search around for some of my favourite artists, and realised I should get copies of some of their lesser-know, albums. Bands like XTC, and Nick Drake's first two albums too, amongst others. Gagh! It never ends!

1. How far from your home is your nearest fire station? About 1 km/ 1 mile. It's good living in a rural community.

2. Have you ever made a call to your local 911 service? If so, how long did it take for emergency personnel -- whatever type you needed -- to arrive? I've rung for an ambulance once before [here we dial "000"], when I witnessed a car accident happen right in front of me. They were there within like 2 or 3 minutes! Amazing!

3. If you had to choose one of the following, which emergency employee would you want to be: police officer, dispatcher, paramedic, firefighter; and why would you choose that one? Paramedic, as they cop less drama from their clients, and they help people in their immediate state of need.

4. Take the quiz: What firefighter tool are you? A gaff hook! Whoo hoo!

5. When you were little, did you ever dream of being a first responder? Not really... I always wanted to be a teacher - or a musician!

6. What is your favorite first-responder-related movie or television show; and how realistically do you think it depicts what they really go through? I don't watch too many of those ER-type shows. They just don't 'do it' for me. Then again, I can't force myself to watch those real lide medical emergecy shows like "RPA" either! Gagh! That's really happening to real people! Gagh!

Name seven of the most under-appreciated jobs in your community.

Parenting - hands down they are the MOST under-appreciated.

"TV Threes"

2. Rachel, Monica or Phoebe? Kooky is kewl.
