Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Because She’s All About That Bass

On a day when the news about Robin Williams saddens me, I feel the need to share something lively and positive. RIP Robin Williams – because you were always so funny and made me laugh like no other – but you also found a way to bring the serious things to the surface, too.

A few weeks ago a fun little song came on the car radio. (Yes, I listen to my local cape radio, WQRC, while driving because it’s the only way I keep up with new music – and it tells me why the cape highway is a parking lot). The chorus of the song, as well as the artist’s unique voice caused me to turn up the volume and listen to the words. I loved it all. It was a song about girls being happy with their body image. Such an important message on a day when we are all thinking about what depression can lead to.

The next time it came on I was on my way to Boston. Again, I turned up the volume. This time I caught the artists name. Meghan Trainor. On the train into the city I googled her. I was amazed to find out she grew up on Nantucket and her family moved to Cape Cod so she could go to high school here. They built her a recording studio in their home. Right out of high school at 18 she was signed to Yellow Big Dog Records to write songs for the likes of Rihanna and Rascal Flatts. “All About That Bass” – now with Epic – is the first time her producers allowed her to sing her own creation. So far she’s been on The Today Show and Michael & Kelly. Not bad for a Cape Cod girl.

Check out Meghan Trainor – All About That Bass and listen to a fun song with a great message for all of us women and girls! My favorite part is when she steps it up in the middle. See if you can find it.

And so, as another day goes by, on a sad day, it’s time to turn up volume and sing along, and…I have written.
