Saturday 9- Vision of Love


Vision of Love

Saturday 9: Vision of Love (1990)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) The lyrics refer to "sweet destiny." Do you believe in destiny?  I believe you make your own destiny, so make good choices and be brave.

2) This week's artist, Mariah Carey, has something to fall back on. She studied cosmetology and worked as a hair sweeper in a salon. When you get your hair cut, do you socialize with the stylist?  Yes, I do.  I have been seeing my stylist for a long time...probably 20 years, so she knows me pretty well.  I love to chat with Josh's stylist too.  We are facebook friends...we live in a small town.
3) She isn't likely to turn to cosmetology any time soon. Mariah is currently on the best seller list with her autobiography, The Meaning of Mariah Carey. Was the last book you finished fiction or non-fiction?  fiction.  It was a thriller called Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter.

4) So far, more than 800 people have reviewed Mariah's book on Amazon. Do you review products/services online?  If I really love something I will give it a review because I want others to know about it.

5) When she was a high school student, she was nicknamed "Mirage" because she skipped class so often. Did you ever play hooky?  Hardly ever.  My senior year I asked my dad if I could leave school early once.  I skipped a few times in college, but not many.

6) Mariah doesn't apologize for spoiling her dogs, who have been known to travel by limo. Do you know anyone who treats their pets like people?  I do a little.  I was really bad with Mandy, so I had to treat the other girls Meisha and Molly the same way.  I have lots of friends that treat their pets like kids.

7) In 1990, the year this song was popular, Martina Navratilova won the Wimbledon Women's Singles Tournament. How's your tennis game?  I haven't played since college, so I am sure it would be horrible.

8) Also in 1990, Pope John Paul II toured Mexico. Have you ever visited our neighbor south of the border?  no, but Karl's family (sisters) goes almost every year.

9) Random question(s): There are Gofundme campaigns for many purposes. Have you ever solicited funds online? Would you?  no I haven't and I would not unless I was absolutely desperate.


  1. Oooh! I've read Karin Slaughter! Her books can be hard to put down.

  2. I enjoyed all of your answers today.
    I have never played hooky or never have played tennis.
    Have a great Saturday my friend.

  3. I will have to look up Karin Slaughter. Thanks for the recommendation.

  4. We feel the same about a lot of stuff today. Especially the GoFundMe stuff. Even desperate I don't know if I'd do it for myself. I'd be way more likely to do it on behalf of someone else.

  5. I had a Go Fund me to get us moved out of NY but it didn't feel right, so I took it down. Desperate times called for desperate stuff, I guess. ANYWAYS--I enjoyed your answers. Have a great day, friend.

  6. A couple is always have a Go Fund Me drive, this time to pay off the deductible to repair their car after a hit and run accident.
    The thing is on Facebook they are always going out to dinner, traveling (last weekend they went to NYC), or buying kitchen gadgets

  7. I will contribute to a GoFundMe if it’s posted by a friend or relative of the person in need. The last time was for the widow of a man who had been murdered. The victim a friend of my partner, they’d known each other since they were teenagers. He was an Uber driver who was carjacked. He would gladly have given them the car.

  8. Fun questions again this week! I enjoyed your answers, Lori. Have a good weekend!

  9. I don't think I've ready any Karin Slaughter books. I'll have to pick something up, I've heard great things.

  10. The problem with going to SuperCuts, where I have my hair cut, is that I never see the same cutter twice.
