Thoughts on Memorial Day

May 27, 2013 2 comments

Memorial Day is very important, and is not always remembered for it’s purpose.

Every American has been touched by someone in public service, active and retired from the military, and the brave heroes who been wounded and have died in service.

This is our day every year to remember, reflect, and respect their sacrifices and service.

Today there was a great Guest Opinion in our local newspaper – the Bucks Courier Times.  I am sharing it here.

GUEST OPINION:
http://www.phillyburbs.com/news/local/courier_times_news/opinion/guest/cheating-those-who-gave-their-lives-for-freedom/article_121da1fa-18f4-54ba-8219-8bfea3262a43.html

Cheating those who gave their lives for freedom

By JAMES F. LONG

It’s almost a shame that Memorial Day has evolved into the traditional launch of the summer season. In so becoming it has turned from a day of reflection into a three-day weekend celebration. It has gone from a quiet time to visit, prune and decorate graves to boisterous backyard barbecues, long trips to the shore, or short trips to a mall for whatever Memorial Day sales long advertised on the news and in the papers, beckon us.

How we cheat those who gave their lives for us, with that number being somewhere around 11,400,000, including about another 4,400 American men and women who have returned home from Iraq in a flag-draped coffins for their loved ones to bury prematurely. They certainly deserve to be thought of as more than an intrusion on an otherwise good time.

And so, we should all be encouraged to take a few hours sometime during Memorial Day weekend to honor the millions throughout our history who fought to preserve our freedom and our way of life, so that today we may now enjoy our present way of living.

There is much to pick from in the way of formal ceremonies, parades and other commemorations held to honor our war dead, by way of TV news, newspapers, etc. If not for yourself, do it for your children. Help them understand the origin of Memorial Day: that it began during the Civil War in the month of May when flowers were available to decorate soldiers’ graves. Thus, Decoration Day was established in 1868, three years after the Civil War ended. It was observed on May 30.

After World War I, Decoration Day was expanded to honor those who died in all U.S. wars and it was renamed Memorial Day. The three-day weekend was born in 1971 when Congress declared it a national holiday and moved it to the last Monday in May. And ever since, it appears the history and meaning of this holiday has slowly receded.

But more than its history, please help your children understand the nature of the day — that it is set aside to honor those who gave their lives on the battlefield and why. Make them aware of the day’s importance — and the importance of the brave men and women whom the day honors — by engaging in a somber ceremony or by taking at least a few moments to reflect. Do this before heading off to the shore, mall, or the neighbor’s noisy backyard barbecue.

May Memorial Day always endure to honor our wars’ dead who gave the supreme sacrifice, so today, we have malls, picnics to attend, and beautiful shores.

“In the Mood”

January 28, 2013 47 comments

This post is about a song from the 40′s that has had a long and interesting career.  It was actually written on top of an existing music score, and repurposed.  The story is copied below from Wikipedia.  Then a bunch of people recorded it and gave it their own flair – like Bette Midler in the 1970′s.

Enjoy the info, and the videos.

What can we learn from this for our online business today?  You don’t always have to invent something from scratch.  You can repurpose, and reuse info that is good and solid and that works.  Go back to the basics and be inspired.  Put a new twist on it, and do it again.  It could be a new hit for you!

————————–

In the Mood” is a big band era #1 hit recorded by American bandleader Glenn Miller. It topped the charts in 1940 in the U.S. and one year later was featured in the movie Sun Valley Serenade.

In 1999, National Public Radio (NPR) included the 1939 Glenn Miller recording on RCA Bluebird on the NPR 100, the list of “The 100 most important American musical works of the 20th century”.[1]

Notable artists who have recorded big-band versions of “In The Mood” include the Joe Loss Orchestra, Xavier Cugat, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Lubo D’Orio, the Brian Setzer Orchestra, The Shadows and John Williams with the Boston Pops Orchestra.

Non-big-band renditions were recorded by the Andrews Sisters, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chet Atkins, Bill Haley & His Comets, Bad Manners, and the Puppini Sisters. In addition, in 1959 Ernie Fields and his Orchestra peaked at number 4 on the pop chart and number 7 on the R&B charts.[2] The song charted at number 16 in 1953 in a version by Johnny Maddox. Jonathan King scored a UK Top 50 hit with his version of the song in 1976. Bette Midler recorded the song in 1973 (on the album Bette Midler). The avant-garde synthpop act Art of Noise occasionally performed a rendition of the song on their live shows, in their trademark sampled style. The rock band Chicago added their version in 1995. An unusual version of the song was released on Maynard Ferguson‘s ‘Lost Tapes Volume 2′ album. The first 30 seconds are the traditional version, but the band then re-starts with the trumpets taking the lead.

A novelty version of the song was recorded by country/novelty artist Ray Stevens in 1977. Stevens’ version consisted of him performing the song in chicken clucks, bar-for-bar. The performance was credited to the “Henhouse Five Plus Too”. The single was a Top-40 hit in both America and the UK.

In 1951 a Ferranti Mark 1 computer at the University of Manchester played “In the Mood”, one of the first songs to be played by a computer, and the oldest known recording of digitally generated music.[3]

Lyrics, In the Mood

Who’s the lovely daddy with the beautiful eyes
What a pair o’ lips, I’d like to try ‘em for size
I’ll just tell him, baby, won’t you swing it with me?
Hope he tells me maybe, what a wing it will be
So, I said politely, “Darlin’, may I intrude”
He said, “Don’t keep me waitin’ when I’m in the mood”

First he held me lightly when we started to dance
Then he held me tightly what a dreamy romance
And he said, “Hey, baby, it’s a quarter to three
There’s a mess of moonlight, won’t you share it with me?”
“Well”, I answered, “Baby, don’t you know that it’s rude
To keep my sisters waitin’ when they’re in the mood?”

In the mood that’s what he told me
In the mood and when he told me
In the mood my heart was skippin’
It didn’t take me long to say I’m in the mood now

In the mood for all his kissin’
[- From: http://www.elyrics.net -]

In the mood his crazy lovin’
In the mood what I was missin’
It didn’t take me long to say I’m in the mood now

First he held me lightly when we started to dance
Then he held tightly what a dreamy romance
And he said, “Hey, baby, it’s a quarter to three
There’s a mess of moonlight, won’t you share it with me?”
Then I answered, “Baby, don’t you know that it’s rude
To keep my sisters waitin’ when they’re in the mood?”

In the mood that’s what he told me
In the mood and when he told me
In the mood my heart was skippin’
It didn’t take me long to say I’m in the mood now

In the mood for all his kissin’
In the mood his crazy lovin’
In the mood what I was missin’
It didn’t take me long to say I’m in the mood now

In the mood
In the mood
In the mood

Do you remember Paul McCartney’s song “Jet”?

January 8, 2013 47 comments

Paul McCartney has had so many stages in his life!  This is a time when everything seemed fun and together for them.

I can’t believe that this song is from 1976!

I have a friend with a Greyhound named “Jet”.  When she mentions him, I think of the song by Paul McCartney and Wings.

There is a lot of confusion about what the song means.

From Songfacts.com -

“Jet” was the name of a black Labrador that Paul McCartney and his wife Linda owned, and the dog provided the title for the song. The McCartney’s owned a variety of animals, and at the time their brood included a Golden Lab named Poppy, a Dalmatian named Lucky, and the old Sheepdog Martha (from the Beatles song “Martha My Dear”). “Jet” was chosen not because he was Paul’s favorite, but because the name makes a very stadium-ready title, perfect for throwing your fist in the air when it’s performed in an arena. The song is really about freedom; McCartney did something similar when he used an amusement park ride as the title for a song about madness in “Helter Skelter.”

Paul’s wife Linda gave some clues to the thought process behind “Jet” when she said in 1976: “He wanted that one to be totally mad. Paul’s had a lot of practice in the studio. He’s done some very trippy things. Every now and then he remembers how much he loves it.”
Tony Visconti, who did a lot of production work for David Bowie and Thin Lizzy, did the orchestration on this song, giving the song a lot of energy and drive.
It’s possible to read a deep meaning into the lyrics, “I thought the Major was a lady suffragette,” but David Bowie’s song Suffragette City was released the previous year, and it’s likely the word “suffragette,” which is a term for a woman fighting for the right to vote, was floating around in McCartney’s mind.
Linda McCartney was an official member of the band, and she was often maligned in the press as being dead weight. Her contributions on stage were rarely pronounced, which was probably the way the audio engineers mixing the shows liked it, but on live performances of this song you can kind of hear her playing the Mellotron if you listen carefully.
————————

Lyrics -

Jet! Jet!

Jet, I can almost remember their funny faces
That time you told them that you were going to be marrying soon
And Jet, I thought the only lonely face was on the moon!

Jet! Jet! Jet!

Was your father as bold as the Sergeant Major
Well how come he told you that you’re hardly old enough yet?
And Jet, I thought the major was a lady suffaragette

Jet! Jet!

Ah mater, want Jet to always love me
Ah mater, want Jet to always love me
Ah mater…much later

Jet!

And Jet, I thought the major was a lady suffragette!

Jet! Jet!

Ah mater, want Jet to always love me
Ah mater, want Jet to always love me
Ah mater…much later

Jet!

With the wind in your hair of a thousand laces
Climb on the back and we’ll go for a ride in the sky
And Jet, I thought that the major was a lady suffragette!

Jet! Jet!

And Jet, you know I thought you was a lady suffragette!

Jet! And a lady, my lady yea…

Oh.

They won’t even let people grieve…

st rose 2

St. Rose of Lima in Newtown, CT was my church growing up.  It is close to the Sandy Hook Elementary school where the shootings happened on Friday.

There was a large attendance at all masses today, but someone evil announced a threat during the noon mass, and the church had to be evacuated.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/16/bomb-threat-newtown-church_n_2311882.html

The news is kind of sketchy.  I heard about it from my friend that lives in the area and was at church today.

There is no excuse for this – NONE.

President Obama will be at a Memorial Service there starting in a few minutes.  I pray for healing for the families and for the town.0

Horror today at the school I went to in Sandy Hook, CT

December 14, 2012 29 comments

Children being escorted to safety – Newtown Bee via Huffington Post

We don’t know the story yet of who the 20 year old shooter was, or what was bothering him.

As of 2pm, 27 are dead -  18 of them are children.

My sister and I grew up in Sandy Hook – a borough of Newtown, CT.  We went to Sandy Hook Elementary, and later changed to St. Rose – the Catholic school in Newtown.

My most vivid memory of the school was the day that President Kennedy was shot.  They rounded us up out of classes to go home.  It was confusing and people were crying.

My mother was a teacher for many years at Hawley Elementary School in the same district.

Shocking, when will the violence end????

good overall coverage -
