I heard a fascinating story on PRI about a Portuguese guy who tried to get a song from his favorite band Deolinda turned into the new national anthem. It' a satireical song bantering about the idea of change. Small world anyone? In the end it's all a joke, said the guy who started it. But for now, it's good song, a hilarious idea, and 3,000 signatures toward a petition for change. Yes we can. No we can't.

10 things I love about my new house

1.) The built in book shelves all throughout the house

2.) The damp smell of Escondido creek foliage that permeates the air

3.) A neighbor's rooster that thinks morning is a continuous state

4.)My new Coventry red and white modern square dishes

5.) The teal chenille area rug from Urban Outfitters that makes me want to lay on the floor all the time

6.) The vintage chandelier above the dinning room table

7.) The kitchen floor that looks like wood but is actually carpet

8.) The door bell that plays about 15 different songs, including "Happy Birthday"

9.) All the fruit trees: Grapefruit, peach, avocado, orange, and pomegranate

10.) The empty garage
