who believe in the #bestofeverything :: that you have a voice, an opinion, something important to say, under one tall and wide banner under the umbrella of hashtag :: #bestofeverything.

tHe DiE hArTs WiLl StArT a ReAlLy CoOl LaNgUaGe ThAt Is UnIvErSaL
you may want to tune into what I'm meandering about, and there is lots.  There never seems to be an end in sight for one's imagination, as long as they create, investigate, and narrate on things or stuff or garbage one want's to talk to.  

uSe YoUr FuNkY nEw StYlE wHeN cOmMeNtInG oN

tWiTtEr Or FaCeBoOk with #bestofeverything where the truly talented enforcers on social media meet.  Just because someone needed to create a clubhouse for the diehard social media enthusiasts.  Only ONE major IMPORTANT rule ((AND you THOSE testers OR negative SCENE will BE deleted.

The positive + helpful + insightful + non-denominal religion site (so if you can't share on Facebook without Ala's or God's words, along with their disciples  under the umbrella of hashtag :: #bestofeverything.

I will inject music that I find really unique 
and inspirational or fun here.  Again, you can submit your own ideas under comments on this blog (remember clubhouse?)  Only rule, they can't have ever won an award of any kind for their music, acting, or whatever else comes forward:  like chef, writer, blogger, personalities are out there under #bestofeverything :: because the more that hashtag is used everywhere, we'll see if it can be trending on not just Twitter, but also Facebook, Google Search Results, Google Plus, G+ so audience become voters simply when they comment (which can be like a vote, if you will, by the members of the "clubhouse")  :: so that everyone assembled, really starts to help each other, support everyone on that group that they themselves promote.

WHERE have THEY gone?
Indeed, this is a song that I thought we need to hear :: a song that came across my radar from surfing iTunes on Apple.  I went to the earliest recording by it to ensure I captured the right, first person.  Which are often not necessarily that got credit for it.

Mood or what?
does YouTube sense my mood or what?  Quite the line up for me right now:  Coldplay's "Paradise" :: Keane's "Everybody's Changing" :: Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars) :: Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run". Go ahead, subscribe to my You Tube channel optioneerJM :: I dare you :: double dare you.  Where's your sense of adventure, and why are you reading this?  I'm not wild.  Trust me.  Maybe I am getting a bit more so in my creative side and writing.  Quite the line up for me now :: 

Family traitor?
That reminds me.  Of family lore.  You see, I am a huge Michael Buble fan with an attitude adjustment. My husband's ex-brother-in-law (ya, I know, if you can figure that out, you're better than me), wrote the tunes for @MichaelBuble +Michael BublĂ©  he didn't even acknowledge him, never mind thank him for writing the song he won his first Juno for?  Is that a too deep?  Does that put me on the controversy radar now?

PlayLists payOFF!
You know what?  That is an under-promoted feature of Apple.  Maybe someone can tell me who's responsible for the radio stations and playlists?  I seem to be a procrastinator on my blog. Radio or playlists are out of this world.  People have been assembling playlists since the dawning of iTunes.  More used as a tool, than a benefit.  Now, step forward whoever was the brainchild of playlists for sharing?  

We have a lot more talented, musical people worldwide that can't get a break.    Lol, maybe, just maybe, you're like me :: I can't draw a thing, i can't lay out much to the style of which I'm in love with (look for Jim Carrey's personal website if you want to test my theory)  tell me what you think.  I'll start on Twitter with #bestofeverthing #website +jimcarrey52x (in Twitterese) for website supremacy ::  You can disagree, post your own, copy and paste me and I'll #rt to get you more followers.

Classic oldie ::
Puff, the magic Dragon by Peter, Paul & Mary.  That is probably where my childhood registers.  I will have to go back and look up what year it came out and how old I am.  As a mini-experiment for how early do we think our earliest memories are.

You Tube Channel
I actually don't know what happens if an outsider, anyone other than me, to be polite listens to my station?  You Tube is getting pretty smart with predicting our wants.  They get to see just about anything!!  The You Tubes titles you subscribe to, viewed, or bounced off (not recording eWwWw ).  So thrilled, in fact, I just Tweeted :: 

"Loving the music that YouTube is selecting for me  ( available on my YouTube channel optioneerJM ) ~..~ jm" you can Follow me and then #RT and I will follow you on Twitter and give you a boost to your traffic.

Identity Stamp *^*
I've used *^*JM as my signature on Twitter.  I just thought creatively with words and a keyboard to come up with it.  Not really artistic, no.  Imaginative tho don't you think?

~..~ jm
Lately, I started to adopt ~..~ jm pretty much everywhere.  Maybe that is the banner I've shucked myself under as I hit 55 this year.  With new fears, new goals driving them, life moving along.  Have you thought of one?  Well, if you're the two or three followers, you can use your new identity stamp with #bestofeverything so I'll notice and re-share and re-tweet everywhere.  Kind of a scratch each other's back in helping support someone else's dreams, not just be self-centered on your own.

Every breath I take

The Police with "every breath i take, every move

 you make, every step you take, I'll be watching

 you" came on just now, so I'm signing off but

every song I saved, I saved to #bestofeverything 

so that all my choices are stored in my YouTube



Every once in a while, I will share what is striking

a chord with me from Apple's iTunes, a 

company I will continue to support, with a dream

that maybe one day, they will advertise on this

Blog.  So I can quit work and write for a living.

in the meantime

a lady has to live a little dream.  Imagine no 

tomorrows that are filled with sorrow.

Optimism supreme

That the two followers I have will divide and

multiply.  Then help and support each other.

Sounds pretty simple.  Is it?

What I'm making

Potato salad

this recipe is something that I always seem to 

make up, get better at, as time moves along.


6 mid-size potatoes, cubed and boiled

4 eggs, boiled, hard

1 strip of bacon

2 dived by one half onion

1 stalk celery, everything green included

6 sprigs of fresh parsley or italian parsley~cilantro

1 carrot

3 radishes

1/2 pickle (large Klassens)

Cook the bacon with 1/2 of onion (or 1/4 as set out before) lightly brown

Put celery, other 1/2 (or 1/4) of onion, parsley, carrot in chopper shown

Dice pickle, eggs, and set aside

Make Dressing


While potatoes and bacon mixture is cooling make the dressing.

4 Tablespoons mayonaise (prefer Kelman's but will 

      exchange with "Kraft Mayo" at a price i.e.  advertises on blog)

2 Teaspoons "no name" mayonaise (will

      exchange with "French" at a price i.e.  advertises on blog)

1 Teaspoon mustard spice  (will name, for a price i.e. 

      advertises on blog)

Salt and pepper to taste (I often leave out salt 

   but heavy on the pepper)

Mix everything together and let sit in fridge for at least 2 

hours before serving with main dish.  For vegans, without bacon, could 

be a protein laden main dish.


If you make this recipebe sure to @optioneerjm on Twitter 

or share with me on Facebook, Pinterest or G+ for a share by me - don't

forget the link to this blog.  Please and thank you.
