Sweet Sounds

Hello sweet bloggy friends . No, your eyes are not deceiving you, that is a record ( I have over 100 of them).

I enjoy your visits here so much. When you leave comments it makes my heart sing. Each comment you leave and each email I receive is valued. I read every one. I respond to each comment here at Katherines Corner ( previously through blogger) and I respond to your emails.

I often receive lovely comments about the music on my blog., I’m so happy you enjoy it. Back in September I asked your opinion about adding music. CLICK HERE to read that post.

I enjoy the music on the blogs I visit. The music here does not just reflect my taste in music, but also reflects the atmosphere I want to be associated with my blog. A recent email from a sweet bloggy friend requested I change the music player so it does not play automatically. Although I prefer not to do that. I will move the music player higher up on the sidebar so you can easily pause it if you prefer to read with out music ( click the parallel bars). In an effort to keep my site user friendly I hope this is a benefit  for you all. Enjoy the sweet sounds.

Please join the new Katherines Corner Book Club .So far the book Maine by J Courtney Sullivan is in the lead for our first book club selection.

    Hi Katherine,

    We still have boxes of records too – they are great aren’t they.
    I agree with you, I also love music too.
    Have a lovely week.

    Hugs
    Carolyn

      You to sweet Carolyn!

    It was a good idea to put the music a bit higher. Most of the time I enjoy the soulful vibe of it, but some days I’m just not ready to hear it! This way I have a choice. Love it!!

      hugs!

    While I LOVE your choice of music, I can’t read and listen at the same time and have always had to mute it. If you need more records, my hubby has about 100,000. Music is his first love and I rank a dim second. LOL!

    1. Katherines Corner

      100,000! Oh my Lord I’d be in heaven. Although I have no idea where I’d store them. giggle.

    I personally like music on blogs most days. I think moving your music player higher-up on your sidebar is a great solution for those who don’t want to listen for whatever reason.

      Thank you sweetie. Hugs!

    You are so kind Katherine.
    Moving it up closer is a good idea..Im thinking Ill do that too, because I have my music on automatic too because sometimes the song is meant to go with that particular post.
    Have a sweet day my friend xo
    Hugs!

    We have a lot of LP’s and my husband enjoys listening to them all the time. They are mostly old rock from the 60’s and 70’s. :-)

    1. Katherines Corner

      mine too!

    Good morning Katie,
    Hope you and the family are all well and happy. We are supposed to reach triple digits today so the heat is pretty bad and everyone’s A/C is having trouble keeping the inside temperature where we want it. Hopefully it is cooler in your neck of the woods. Linda was pleased with her Avon order she got the weekend so I hope business is good for you. Take care and stay cool.
    Hugs,
    Odie

    1. Katherines Corner

      To hot for me sweet friend. Sending hugs to you both!!!

    I can remember racing to the misic shop to get the latest LP or 45 release !! Oh my…. Wonderful memories ! !
    Have a Wonderful Day ! !
    Marilyn

    1. Katherines Corner

      shhhh, don’t tell..I have a couple 45’s too. giggle

    I always LOVE it when the music is serene and relaxing…Sometimes it makes you not want to leave…. : ) I must admit I have done that a couple of times as the VERY relaxing music played on and on… : )… I agree with Deborah that moving up closer to the top is a wise choice… and gives those a chance to mute it…

    Lovely to have you visit today and congratulations on your sign winning’s… : )

    1. Katherines Corner

      hugs and thank you!

    I blog with my speakers off, so I never noticed that you played music. Probably best if I never play music on mine. My choices would scare people.

    1. Katherines Corner

      giggle, do I hear heavy metal in the background!

    Hi Katherine,

    Nice to meet you! I think it’s a great idea to move the music so people have an easy choice. When I had my other blog, I decided to just remove it. I do like music while I visit, so I put on my own. Your blog is lovely.
    Hope you have a delightful day!
    Becky

    1. Katherines Corner

      Welcome Becky so kind of you to stop by. Hugs

  12. Camille

    My husband has a lot of records from the 50’s, 60’s. I too enjoy the music on your blog.
    We’ve been on vacation and I’m trying to catch up on my blogging.
    Have a good week ~

    1. Katherines Corner

      Camille I wish there was a way to email you. I hope your vacation was relaxing and many happy memories were made. Hugs!

    I do actually prefer to be able to decide if i want to listen to music on someone’s blog as I am often listening to music while blog reading anyway! In fact no sound here today anyway must be because I am in Europe! Your book club sounds fun but again being in Europe does not look as though it will work for me to join as never heard of this author.

    1. Katherines Corner

      Oh I do hope you will try and join us. I know a lot of these books are available online too. Hugs!

    Hi there. I always have my speakers on mute, so I didn’t know that you played music either! :( Like you I have a lot of old 45’s from the 60’s. I also have a Juke Box with 100 records on it, and I love playing it!

    1. Katherines Corner

      Oh I’m a a bit jealous of the juke box. Big hugs!

  15. Lesa

    I don’t think my hub has ever gotten rid of any records– or cassettes or cds– no 8-tracks around though. I usually have my own music going so yay for the option to mute.

    1. Katherines Corner

      I had two 8 tracks in a box finally let them go… Hugs!

  16. annie

    I also had tons of records including 45s and old 78s. My daughter has confiscated most of them now. Shes a big fanatic!
    Lovely post :)

    1. Katherines Corner

      Annie I love that your daughter is using your records. Wonderful. Hugs!

  17. kathy

    Hi Catherine,
    beautiful music selection. Lps, 45s, and what about 78s??? Hubby just recently got about 50 albums (lps) that belonged to his mom. Dad gave his stack of 78s to my brother… Including some by Al Jolson. Definitely worth saving :)

    1. Katherines Corner

      Hi Kathy, no I don’t have any 78’s, I sold them all a long time ago. Big Hugs!

  18. MamaSpaghetti

    The record made me smile! My parents have an old Victrola, and I love to fire that thing up, with all the great old records. So much fun

    1. Katherines Corner

      I’m happy I shared this with everyone. I love that your parents have a Victrola that is wonderful. :-)
