TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS

Takin' Care Of Business
By Bachman-Turner Overdrive

THE COUCH NOTE: 8:54am CST: Internet police have backed off. I guess they recieved those "packages" I had sent to them last night. Funny how well a cockroach head works just as well as a horse's head and is so much less messier.

Morgen is the owner of IT’S A BLOG EAT BLOG WORLD, where anything might be said on any given day. I enjoy visiting - speeding through the "Herbal Soap" posts - and get a laugh each day.

On Saturday’s Morgen will normally ask a member of the Bloggosphere to sit for SEVEN SILLY QUESTIONS.

Tomorrow, THE COUCH is honored to have been asked to take a seat on his divan.

We had a blast with the questions and invite y’all to visit tomorrow to see the results.

Then, make him a regular stop on your daily travels.

On Monday over at THE BESTEST BLOG OF ALL-TIME, Bobby Griffin is holding his first "BESTEST BLOG CARNIVAL”. Anyone who has linked up with TBBOAT was able to submit a link to a posting they are especially proud of.

He will collect them all and feature them on Monday.

Check it out, it should be a great way to find other blogs that tickle your fancy.

You have until Saturday (tomorrow) at 11:59PM EST to submit an entry.

As the holidays are coming on fast, and we will be traveling and away, we will have limited posting over the next two weeks.

There is also a referendum on the table and it appears the decorators will be taking up residence during that time and THE COUCH is hopeful for a full reupholstering to begin the New Year.

Taylor Hicks has been all over the TV the last couple of weeks in anticipation and in support of the release of his debut album.

"TAYLOR HICKS" was released this week and has taken the country by storm. The reviews have been very favorable and they are flying off the shelves.

DO yourself a favor. Do not dismiss this talented gentleman because of how he was discovered. His brand of music is welcomed amongst the cacophony of sappy sweet, gansta cruel and bland pop that has ruled the airwaves for too dang long.

Self described as “Modern Whomp Music” it is a blend of rock, blues, soul, Cajun and Motown.

The first single “THE RUNAROUND” has a great drum signature, that keeps the song moving and there is a danceablity to it.

THE COUCH’s favorite tune was surprisingly written by Bryan Adams and is called “THE RIGHT PLACE.”

This song is perfect for him and he does it proud - and nothing like that drivel they made him sing when he won the show.

Remember back a while ago I mentioned that site Blogwhore? Well, I guess they did not feel THE COUCH was worthy of being called a whore…I never heard back from them…not a peep…not even, “Hey we hate your freakin’ site, drop dead.” NADA, ZERO, ZILCH, NOTHING.

We removed the little button we put up. .

Looking at a couple of ways to add some advertising here, but being very vigilant that it does not detract from YOUR enjoyment of THE COUCH.

It is more important that my guests are always comfortable.

OK…hope you enjoy your weekend and remember…BLOG EAT BLOG tomorrow and BESTEST BLOG CARNIVAL on Monday.

And of course, Monday brings us a new MONDAY MATINEE on THE COUCH.

Have a great weekend....


St. J - P.B.U.A.B.W.A.B



Thanks for sitting on THE COUCH, hope you enjoyed your stay.
