~Lord have mercy ~Thee I adore ~Into Your hands
Lucky you! I saw her (quite) a few years ago, with David Rawlings, and it was a memorable night. I hope you enjoy yourself!
Lucky you. That should be fun!
I think so. It will be a week after my second cataract surgery so I should be able to see the stage without glasses. I can't imagine.AMDG
It's a bit creepy the way I found out about the concert. An ad appeared on the sidebar of my Facebook page. So, did they see from my cookies that I'd been looking for GW concerts, or that I had written about her on my blog, or that I had bought her albums emusic? Anyway, in this case, I'm glad it was there.AMDG
That is a bit creepy. Had you listed any musical preferences on Fb that might have been similar to GW? Or 'liked' her or similar music? Is your blog listed on your Fb page? If not, it's hard to see how Fb could have located it. There are advertising services that track what you're browsing across sites--I see evidence of that a lot, when I suddenly start seeing ads for something I was shopping for the day before.
When I was first here in the mid-West, I found it difficult never going to shops and window shopping. So I did more web browsing of clothes than normal (I don't do that much usually). I started being followed around by a picture of an expensive brand of Jeans I had checked out. I could have coped with it being on the sidebar, but a picture of a lady's butt in these jeans would open out on the middle of the page when I was trying to read the Daily Telegraph or Spectator or First Things. I don't actually 'window shop' for clothes any more, because that kind of advertising is more annoying than it is worth. Also, before I had my beautiful little Toyota Yaris, I had to look for shoes online. So I was always getting the names of online shoe merchants on my sidebar. I made a point of never buying from the people who advertised themselves to me like this. Worst was when I had to explore some nasty extremist Catholics who are infilitrating my lay OP group. I started getting adverts for 'modest clothing'. I am too old and fat for modesty to matter one way or another, but yeech, the thought of wearing modest clothing makes my spine tingle.
I get almost all my clothes from the same company and order them online. My entire wardrobe follows me--and my poor husband--all over the web. I don't want to quit buying from them because they have exactly what I want, but it's very annoying.I'm really jealous of anyone with a Toyota. Don't tell my Nissan. I don't want it to feel rejected.Maclin, I have been doing searches for her tours, so I guess it's my cookies.AMDG
No it is a little manual Yaris, the cheapest Toyota, but very beautiful.
I'm sure it's a nice car, but what kind of name is "Yaris"?! The Asian car makers seem to have a tendency to go for not-apparently-of-any-meaning names. Sentra. Sephia. Maybe they mean something in another language, but come on, we're Americans. If I were going to buy a car on the basis of its name, I'd probably be driving some giant SUV. My car has the massively unimaginative name of 940GL.
I was thinking that myself--an odd name. For some reason it makes me think of rabbits! If anybody can figure out the connection, I would love to know what it is. Still, it's a Toyota.AMDG
To me it suggests sci-fi or fantasy. "Ambassador Yaris is on comscreen1, captain." Or maybe King Yaris and Queen Sephia.
Prince Camry and Princess Corolla--they're twin.AMDG
As I sometimes say, my mother was a fashion designer. Everything had a woman's name - coats, dresses, shirts. Each design had its own name. I don't know why they did it, but it made it easier to talk about it, IE, we need to cut 15 more Gigi dresses. You do have to strain for names after some years of that. So I can see Toyota's p.o.v.
"Yaris" is Turkish for racing. I suspect that may have something to do with it."The race is not to the swift" Google Translate turns into "yarış hızlı değil" in Turkish. It then back-translates it as "the corolla is not exactly quick".
So Yaris and Corolla mean about the same thing? It seems odd that the Japanese would use these Turkish words, but then we do it all the time, I guess.AMDG
Well, Google Translate finds matches statistically. It can lead to some interesting "equivalences". I've read that at one time it translated Russian-English "Ivan Grozny" as "Abraham Lincoln"; and not so long ago Spanish-English it turned "Manuel Fraga" into "Abraham Lincoln".
It is just so cool to know that the name of my car is Turkish for 'racing'. thanks!
You're welcome. Search for "yaris" on google.com.tr and you find things like: http://www.hitresim.com/At-Resimleri/Yaris-Ati.htmlIt's an experiment I might regret performing. Since mentioning Turkish here, I've had Turkish ads pop up on Youtube, and "Discover Islam" ads in my sidebar on Facebook. Just how pervasive are these cookie things?
Very, but they will find something else to sell you soon.AMDG
