Superbowl Week could only mean: time for Christmas Songs! Right?

I'm up way too early this morning. Completely missed the debate last night. That's too bad 'cause I wanted to laugh at Ron Paul. No, probably almost anything I'd have heard from him woulda just made me mad. I'm so politiced out anyway. Let's just elect a family of mice to run the country. They'd probably do just as good of a job, if not better, than any politicians or businessmen.

-54° (-48 C) in Fort Yukon yesterday. Man... that's like nuts. -40 we see occasionally in winter but it almost never hits -50+ here.

With the day off from work, we had a nice High Temp of -19° (-28 C.) I don't think I went outside at all. I know I didn't go anywhere... when it's that cold, when ya don't gotta, ya don't go nowhere! Simple.

Overnight it started snowing again. Won't accumulate much but lookin' out my front window at the snow falling in the lone streetlight about a football field away, tis quite a peaceful and almost Christmas-like scene.

So... how about some tunes to match this A.M....

And because I can, I'm gonna throw in some random search words/terms: Wyckoff, Oakland, New Jersey, Franklin Lakes, Bergen County, Ho Ho Kus, Paramus, Ridgewood, Allendale, Wayne, Ringwood, Mahwah, Pompton Lakes, Pompton Plains, Hawthorne, Hoboken, Suffern, Riverdale, Ramapo, Garden State Plaza, Willowbrook Mall, Long Beach Island, Greenwich Village, Times Square, Brooklyn, Cassidy, Juliet, Emma, Lake Carmel, Indian Hills High School.  Done.
It's Christmas All Year!

Me listening to music by a 14 year old girl? Yeah, uh, that's almost creepy. The thing is, if you did not know the girl singing on these songs was 14 when this album was recorded, you'd never imagine she was just a child of such a young age. Well, at least I never would. What an amazing voice she has! It's heavenly even. Being someone who does not listen to opera-style or this type of classical music, this was definitely different. Beautiful stuff, though.

Now I find it interesting that the little girl from Cardiff, Wales is now a 21 year old unmarried mom. Living with boyfriends since Age 16, she's had plenty of sex including the mistake pregnancy. Apparently salacious sex stories of young Charlotte have been sold to the slimy UK press by TWO former lovers.
She's been in and out of the tabloids for mostly all the wrong reasons while hundreds of thousands of pounds have been paid and made... all because a little girl wasn't brought up properly. Did fame have something to do with it all? Probably. How special. And how sad.
