We Are the Champions #Monday Musical Memories

The song I’m featuring today was our fight song when I was on the high school speech team during the 1970’s. One of the guys had a portable eight-track tape deck and a cartridge containing this song plus its companion, “We Will Rock You.” We, as a team, often listened to these songs in his hotel room. While traveling, when that combination came on the radio, the volume was turned up, and we all sang along, distracting our poor coach, who was, by the way, driving the van we used for most of our trips to speech meets.

“We Are the Champions” can be applied to this current situation. Since its inception, the world has been through so much. We can survive this. If we keep doing what we’re doing, i.e. staying home, only going out when necessary, wearing masks, etc. we can be the champions against the coronavirus. Enjoy the song, and keep fighting.

If you’re on Facebook, you’re invited to a promotional event called Mayday Magnificence, in which I’ll be participating May 1-3. Authors, myself included, and businesses will promote their work and maybe share a few laughs. Please click here to join the event. I hope to see you there.



By the way, My Ideal Partner and The Red Dress are now available on Smashwords as part of its sale to support those isolated by the coronavirus. This sale will run until the end of May. Please click here to visit my Smashwords author page and download these books. As always, thank you for reading.


New! The Red Dress

Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books

Front cover contains: young, dark-haired woman in red dress holding flowers

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.

Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.

  2. My favourite group. Freddy Mercury had a varied journey in life, born in Zanzibar. My Australian friend’s Anglo Indian husband was at the same Indian boarding school as Farrokh Bulsara, as he was then. Even at school he apparently had a big personality that stood out and played the piano brilliantly. He later ended up living in Feltham, a not very exciting suburb by Heathrow Airport, diagonally opposite to the not very exciting suburb by Heathrow that we lived in!
