Time To Eat

My name is John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt and you can call me anything you want, as long as you don’t call me late for dinner.  Hobbits are humanoid creatures, with smaller bodies and because they have a different metabolism, they are required to consume significantly more food than regular humans.  Their smaller body mass causes them to eat seven meals a day which they do in order to keep their body temperature up, as they have a higher surface area to volume ratio, therefore they lose heat faster, and thus they always seem to be eating.  People eat to satisfy their appetites and this is mostly done between particular time frames.  A meal is what we call a portion of food that is eaten at any time of the day​, although this usually does not include snacksWhen a person says that someone eats like a bird, they mean that this person eats very little, but every time I look at birds, they are either eating, or looking for something to eat.  Birds are always eating because it takes a lot of energy to fly and relative to their body weight, they actually eat a lot.  If someone says that you eat like a horse, they mean that you will eat anything.  If someone says that you eat like a squirrel, that means that you are storing your food for later.

Last week we had Mercilessly Barbaric, with the theme of Brutal, Cruel, Frenzy, Savage, Violent suggested by Melanie.  This week we the theme of Breakfast, Brunch, Dinner, Lunch, Snack, Supper suggested by Paula Light of Light Motifs II.  Take some time to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this music challenge, and even better, read as many of them as you are able to as you will probably find many enjoyable songs and it is quite possibly that you will learn a thing or two.  Share your music with others and post a video, try do some research and let everyone know something about the song that you post.  Tell everyone why you like the song, whether it was a hit, or what you think the song is about.  Show the lyrics, let’s all listen to our favorite songs and explore some new music.  Try to find a song that fits the prompt, then write your post and create a pingback, or you can just place your link in the comments section.

Here are the “rules”:
• Try to use the prompt words or at least conform to a general theme, as you see it.  If the song you select does not meet the criteria, then please explain why you chose this song.
• It would be good if you could post the lyrics to the song of your choice, as this is helpful for the people that want to follow along with the music.
• Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due. It would also be a good idea to give credit to the singer and the band associated with your song.
• Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be, but please try not to include too many videos as that just makes it take longer to look at all of the other posts.
• Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song.
• Ping back to this post or place your link in the comments section below.
• Read at least one other person’s blog, so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process.
• Feel free to suggest future prompts.
• Have fun and enjoy the music.

I am writing about the song ‘On The Road Again’ which is recognized as being Traditional.  Next week, I will be writing about the Tom Petty song ‘American Girl’.  The upcoming prompts will be:
July 4, 2021 – American music which is any song played by an American group.
July 11, 2021 – Bugs, Insects suggested by Amy Braun, ☆ai love music☆ aisasami
July 18, 2021 – Breakup songs suggested by Janis of themomshiediaries
July 25, 2021 – Automobile, Car, Jalopy, Vehicle suggested by Melanie B Cee of sparksfromacombustiblemind

  1. Those scientific facts about hobbits are really interesting. Is that something that Tolkien thought up or has someone (you?) put those together in the intervening years? Regardless, it makes a lot of sense. I always thought they ate so frequently because they are gluttons, and Tolkien did nothing to dispel that impression .

  2. I was laying low 18 hours behind on my scroll realizing I was accidentally enrolled in Advanced Blogging instead Blogging 101 when I read your first paragraph and I just had to admit I enjoyed learning so much about the birds and Hobbits today!

    1. Always glad to help. I write this post every week as a way of allowing all the bloggers to share their music and most times, everybody ignores whatever I write, because they just want to link back their music. you are the second person today to comment on what I wrote, and I want to thank you for reading Geoff.
