Mewsic and More

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Mewsic Moves Me (hosted by Curious as a Cathy,Xmas Dolly, JAmerican Spice and Stacy Uncorked.The theme for this week is songs that teach. I could only come up with one, Billy Joel’s We  Didn’t Start the Fire (1989). I remember when I was a tutor that one of the History teachers had the students memorize the song. It covers 100 events from 1949-1989.

We are also joining Comedy Plus’ Awww..Mondays.Joanie is investigating the crocheted vases I made for pussy willows.

One more thing- the winner of our giveaway in one of our loyal readers-Cindyann. She wrote 2 great poems ( one for each giveaway) in the comments which did not affect her chances, but they were a lot of fun. Thank you to all who entered. We will have another giveaway soon.

Although I think Emmy looks cute in the hat
I’ve really got my eye on the mat
I do think she’s an adorable cat
I don’t know what my cats would think about that
—-
I like the mat the mat is cute
I do like the character Groot
this is my attempt to rhyme
now you know why i don’t do it all the time


Another chance at a Dr Seuss Mat
I really must be a lucky cat (cats??)
I am so happy I got out of bed
to see the photos of Mr & Mrs Potato Head

You may roll your eyes at my rhyme
but I’ll cross my fingers that I win this time

Hey Girlfriend, I have a giveaway going on too that you might like at least I hope you will. You will see it in my sidebar. It’s the very first one. GOOD LUCK & ENJOY!

  2. I love Billy Joel!

    My daughter’s Social Studies teacher gave them a project based on this song. They had to describe all te events in the song.

  3. Ellen,

    That’s a furtastic song choice for this week’s theme. This song popped up on my radar and I thought about using it but then I went the route of teaching English through mewsic.

    I enjoyed the cute poems included in today’s post by some of your readers. Best of luck to those entering!

    Thanks for sharing the dance floor with me, my friend. Have a boogietastic week! 😉

  4. Thank you thank you what a happy day!
    A new mat for my cats to play!
    My Chunky likes to lay on it and roll around
    I find it in different places on the ground!
    My other cat Hallie she likes it too
    but mostly she licks it and I go “ewwww”
    LOL LOL
    ok … it’s 5:30 am and I need my coffee but thank you so much
    you are AWESOME and I can’t wait to have a new fun mat!!

  5. We thought of another song: “Teach the Children Well” by Crosby, Stills & Nash. It’s an older soft rock hit.

  6. What a fun video. I’d have to work a bit to remember some of those events. Well done.

    Congratulations to the winner, she is a good rhymer.

  10. Billy Joel is a favorite and I’ve always loved that song. I also love pussy willows and think your crochet vases are simply adorable.

  11. Very cool choice for a song, Ellen. I love your crochet vases and pussy willows. I feel very fortunate to have some of your vases and pussy willows. Every time I look at them I think of the Meowing Crew… thank you! Sweet poems and I like Groot, too!

  12. I love Billy Joel, and I started out in college as a history major, so this song had me from its first verse. It’s a rock classic (as is Billy Joel); just perfect for this week’s theme. (Cute poems from your fan, too.)
