The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is first.”

~~~~~~~~~~

You’re the First, the Last, My Everything was Barry White’s fourth top ten hit on the US Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, reaching #2; it spent a week at #1 on the Billboard Hot Soul Singles chart. The track made it to number two on the disco/dance charts. In the UK Singles Chart it fared even better, spending two weeks at the top in December 1974. It appeared on White’s 1974 album Can’t Get Enough.

Peter Radcliffe originally wrote the track as a country song with the title You’re My First, You’re My Last, My In-Between, which went unrecorded for 21 years. White recorded it as a disco song, retaining most of the musical structure while rewriting the lyrics.

Enjoy!

You’re the First, the Last, My Everything

[Verse 1]
My first, my last, my everything
And the answer to all my dreams
You’re my sun, my moon, my guiding star
My kind of wonderful, that’s what you are

[Chorus]
I know there’s only, only one like you
There’s no way they could have made two
You’re all I’m living for, your love I’ll keep forevermore
First, you’re the last, my everything

[Verse 2]
In you I’ve found so many things
A love so new, only you could bring
Can’t you see it’s you? You make me feel this way
You’re like a first morning dew on a brand new day

[Bridge]
I see so many ways that I can love you ’til the day I die
You’re my reality, yet I’m lost in a dream
You’re the first, the last, my everything

[Chorus]
I know there’s only, only one like you
There’s no way they could have made two
Girl, you’re my reality, but I’m lost in a dream
You’re the first, you’re the last, my everything
You and me babe…is you

NOW A NETFLIX ORIGINAL FILM STARRING SANAA LATHAN

What happens when you toss tradition out the window and really start living for yourself?

Venus Johnston has a great job, a beautiful home, and a loving live-in boyfriend named Clint, who happens to be a drop-dead gorgeous doctor. She also has a weekly beauty-parlor date with Tina, who keeps Venus’s long, processed hair slick and straight. But when Clint–who’s been reluctant to commit over the past four years–brings home a puppy instead of an engagement ring, Venus decides to give it all up. She trades in her long hair for a dramatically short, natural cut and sends Clint packing.

It’s a bold declaration of independence–one that has effects she never could have imagined. Reactions from friends and coworkers range from concern to contempt to outright condemnation. And when Clint moves on and starts dating a voluptuous, long-haired beauty, Venus is forced to question what she really wants out of life. With wit, resilience, and a lot of determination, she finally learns what true happiness is–on her own terms. Told with style, savvy, and humor, Nappily Ever After is a novel that marks the debut of a fresh new voice in fiction.

There might be no such thing as werewolves, vampires or ghosts but apparently evil Klowns are real.

Tempest Michaels is once again investigating ridiculous cases that are clearly not even slightly paranormal in nature. However, his daily menu of fun is interrupted by a plague of men dressed in garish outfits. They wear twisted clown make-up as they terrorise the Kent towns and villages with ever escalating and more frequent attacks.

The Klowns should be a case for the police to solve but their leader appears to have a serious beef with Tempest and they are coming for him and anyone that gets in their way. Who are the Klowns? What do they want? And what’s with the ridiculous smiles?

If they were not enough of a nuisance, he has foolishly employed a woman he is utterly besotted by. Trying to ignore Mr Wriggly’s thoughts about what to do with his new colleague, he goes after his silver medal, a girl he lusted after years ago at school, but while Mr Wriggly might not care tuppence about the difference, is Tempest’s heart really in it?

Throw in a demonic possession, a restaurant with ghostly footsteps and some more meddling by his mother, it looks like another entertaining week for Kent’s best Paranormal Investigator.

Fibromyalgia and Flare-ups

Fibro Cloud

“What does a fibromyalgia flare up feel like?” It’s a question you might be asking if you’ve just been diagnosed or think you might be going through one right now. Or you might just be trying to get a sense of what the disease is like so that you can understand what a suffering loved one goes through. Unfortunately, it’s not an easy question to answer. You see, a fibromyalgia flare up can feel different for different people. So when it comes to the question “what does a fibromyalgia flare up feel like,” there’s no answer that covers every person with fibromyalgia.

There are a few general things that are common in flare ups which can help us get a start in understanding what it’s like. But first, let’s talk about what exactly a fibromyalgia flare up is.

What Is A Fibromyalgia Flare Up?

Put simply, a fibromyalgia flare up is a sudden increase in the severity of someone’s fibromyalgia symptoms. So if your fibromyalgia pain is at around a 3 on a 1 to 10 scale on most days and then suddenly one day it’s at an 8, then you’re experiencing a fibromyalgia flare up.

But flare ups don’t just come with increased pain. A lot of the other symptoms of fibromyalgia also get worse during a flare up. The fatigue or mental fog are both noticeably heavier for many people during a flare up.

What Causes Fibromyalgia Flare Ups?

There are actually a lot of things that can cause a fibromyalgia flare up. Probably the most common trigger is simply stress. Stress is known to cause a variety of health problems like weakened immune systems, and it’s possible that it also limits the ability of your body to deal with fibromyalgia pain, leading to a flare up.

But while stress seems like a pretty obvious trigger, there are also some surprising things that can lead to a fibromyalgia flare up. For instance, exercise is a significant trigger for people with fibromyalgia. People with fibromyalgia often find that just working up a sweat can be enough to trigger days of fibro flare ups. That’s a serious problem because exercise has been shown to be a very effective treatment for fibromyalgia, which is just another little aggravation when it comes to living with fibromyalgia.

And even things like changes in the weather can cause painful fibromyalgia flare ups. Much like people with bad hips who can feel when it will rain, people with fibromyalgia often get flare ups with changes in the air pressure caused by the weather.

What Does A Fibromyalgia Flare Up Feel Like?

Basically, a fibromyalgia flare up is a period where the pain from fibromyalgia is worse than usual. So it’s worth talking about what fibromyalgia usually feels like. See, for people with fibromyalgia, their muscles and joints often feel a sort of dull aching. This is pretty constant but can spike up to more severe levels of pain during a fibromyalgia flare up. This pain can feel like a knife is being forced into the muscle, or like the muscle is being pulled. In short, a fibromyalgia flare up can be excruciatingly painful. And it can basically shut down anything you are doing for days. Fibromyalgia sufferers end up

And in addition to feeling pain and fatigue, fibromyalgia flare ups often come with a kind of mental cloudiness. This is usually called “fibro fog” and the best way to describe it is that you have a hard time focusing on anything. It’s a common symptom of fibromyalgia and can get especially intense during a flare up. So when you’re asking “What does a fibromyalgia flare up feel like,” it’s important to consider the mental aspect of it as well as the physical pain.

Both can make it difficult to complete daily tasks or go to work. Not only do you have to suffer from agonizing pain, but you can’t focus on the simplest things. So people with fibromyalgia often end up in bed for days at a time during particularly difficult flare ups. Thus, it’s important to remember that people with fibromyalgia will go through easier and harder times. And if someone you love or just work with has fibromyalgia, try to be understanding about that. Give them a rest during their flare ups, and try to be supportive.

Forgive me father, for I have sinned . . .

Detective Mike Cancini has seen dark days as a homicide detective in Washington, D.C. But even he is shocked when a charismatic young priest is found shot through the eye on the altar of his own church. As Cancini investigates, he uncovers long-buried secrets from the man’s past, and it becomes clear that the church was not as holy as it seemed.

When another priest is attacked, Cancini refuses to believe it’s a coincidence, and his frustration grows as his search is blocked at every turn by inflexible priests and cagey church employees. The resolute detective must unravel the web of lies before more people are hurt, but how can he find a murderer when no one is innocent, and everyone’s a sinner?

He met with tragedy.

Richard Harding was walking alone when he was struck by a vehicle and died.

A tragic accident that was no one’s fault.

But if that was so, then why was his girlfriend so sure that it was intentional homicide?

Zachary Goldman is on the case. With Christmas approaching, he is as determined to distract himself from his own troubles as he is to ferret out the truth of Harding’s death.

The pieces of the puzzle start to fall into place and Zachary finds that there are more parallels between Harding’s life and his own than he would have guessed.

If he doesn’t identify the sinister force behind Harding’s death in time, he could suffer the same fate.
