Operation 40 Anthem

by Lindy
Peter Pan Syndrome | Forever Young

Peter Pan Syndrome | Forever Young | Operation 40 | Pirates go down with their ship

I hear this song practically every morning Monday through Friday on my Pandora Radio alarm clock. It is has been my official ‘Operation 40’ anthem and my ultimate refusal to ‘sit down, shut up and most of all grow up’. I turn 40 this May and I’m not going over that hump without a solid fight!

Enjoy this little ditty by Frank Turner – Photosynthesis!

What is your anthem? Leave a comment or perish!

Lyrics to Photosynthesis by Frank Turner

Well I guess I should confess that I am starting to get old
All the latest music fads all passed me by and left me cold
All the kids are talking slang I won’t pretend to understand
All my friends are getting married, mortgages and pension plans
And it’s obvious my angry adolescent days are done
And I’m happy and I’m settled in the person I’ve become
But that doesn’t mean I’m settled up and sitting out the game
Time may change a lot but some things may stay the same

And I won’t sit down
And I won’t shut up
And most of all I will not grow up
And I won’t sit down
And I won’t shut up
And most of all I yeah I won’t grow up

Oh maturity’s a wrapped up package deal so it seems
And ditching teenage fantasy means ditching all your dreams
All your friends and peers and family solemnly tell you you will
Have to grow up be an adult yeah be bored and unfulfilled
Oh when no ones yet explained to me exactly what’s so great
About slaving 50 years away on something that you hate,
about meekly shuffling down the path of mediocrity
Well if that’s your road then take it but it’s not the road for me

And I won’t sit down
And I won’t shut up
And most of all I will not grow up
And I won’t sit down
And I won’t shut up
And most of all I yeah I won’t grow up
And I won’t sit down
And I won’t shut up
And most of all I will not grow up

And if all you ever do with your life
Is photosynthesize
Then you deserve every hour of these sleepless nights
That you spend wondering when you’re gonna die

Now I’ll play and you sing
The perfect way for the evening to begin
Now I’ll play and you sing
The perfect way for the evening to begin

And I won’t sit down
And I won’t shut up
And most of all yeah I won’t grow up
And I won’t sit down
And I won’t shut up
And most of all I will not grow up
And I won’t sit down
And I won’t shut up And most of all I will not grow up


Lindy’s Nautical 40th Birthday Party Mix Tape

by Lindy

“Lindy’s Nautical 40th” birthday party is just two months away and planning is well under way! Invitations have been designed and sent out. Shout out to Courtney Mansell Design (former maiden name Van Laar) for her most awesome graphic design skills. We work closely together on projects all the time, and I’m always in debt to her for the magical way she pulls concepts together.

We are going to be taking a three hour tour on the Newport Beach Harbor Tiki Boat by Fun Zone Boats. They feature charter and party boat trips in Newport Beach, California. The photos of their booze cruises look epic! Of course, I have a comprehensive list of my own ideas to make it even more memorable and fun. Battle Shots, anyone? Nautical costumes and regalia? There will be a taco bar, regular bar, DJ and a Gilligan’s Island vibe. Photo ops galore!

Festive Air Force Band Flash Mob

by Lindy

Someone shared this video with me the other day and I found it so beautiful and inspiring. It was a flash mob of the Air Force Band at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C. on December 3rd.

As an Air Force vet, I’m proud to see all the sharply dressed airmen in their dress blues playing such powerfully beautiful Christmas music.

The Air Force band’s orchestral flash mob definitely gets you in the festive spirit!

Support the Air Force Band online:

Download a free MP3 of the Holiday Flash Mob – go to and find the center link for “Download the Flash Mob Audio file Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring/Joy to the World.” Right click and “save as” or “save target as” – then download!
