Hershey World of Vegas


Just walking around the Hershey World Store in Las Vegas. It is a cool place and it is all things Hershey:

And some homemade goodies:

And they did have two Statues of Liberty's:

Made from Twizzlers

Made from Chocolate

I always enjoy walking through Hershey World on the Las Vegas Strip.

The Flowers Are Trying to Get Out


Before our latest batch of rain, here in the Bay Area I went over to Pier 39 as they were trying to get the Tulips growing in-between our rain storms:

It is nice to see a little spring.

Music Monday: Song Lyrics That Have Been Misheard

 Music Monday: We are going to look at songs that have some misheard lyrics:

"We Built City"- Starship: Some people think that they hear: "We built this city on sausage rolls" but the correct line is "We built this city on rock and roll.":

"Chasing Payments"-Adele -  The correct lyric is "Or should I just keep chasing pavement" some people hear and think it is "Or should I just keep chasing penguins.":

"Royals" - by Lorde:  A lot of listeners sing "You can call me green bean" but line is actually "You can call me queen bean":

"We Didn't Start the Fire"- Billy Joel: The lyric is Bagan, Reagan, Palestine, Wheel of Fortune, Sally Ride," but some hear "Bacon-making Palestine, We love torture, Sally Ride.". Also there is another line that goes "Trouble in the Suez," and many have thought it is "Trouble in the Sewers"- according to Joel:

"Waterfalls"-TLC:  People think that they hear "Don't go Jason Waterfalls" but the correct lyric is "Don't go chasing Waterfalls":

"Africa"- Toto: I have made this mistake several times as I sung "There nothing that a hundred men on mars could ever do,", the correct lyric is "There nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do."

Hope that everyone has a wonderful week.
