@edgarblythe,
Wow! That's one by The Rolling Stones that I haven't heard either, edgar. I liked it, Texas. Thanks!

Well, it's time for me to say goodnight, and here's one that I know but don't know why I know it. It's lovely and perfect for the evening, y'all.

Off to bed now, but as always

From Letty with love

When I was a boy, I heard Jimmy Wakely frequently. He was pretty good.

@edgarblythe,
Good morning, WA2K radio and edgar. Razz

My word, Texas, I had forgotten about the Chordettes. Love it, buddy.

Want to jump start your heart, y'all? Get up and dance to Wilson Pickett whose birthday is today.

lallallaalallallllaaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllllaaaaaaaaaaaaalalalalall <singing.....

"You Raise Me Up"

When I am down and oh my soul, so weary,
When troubles come and my heart burdened be,
Then I am still and wait here in the silence,
UNTIL you come and sit a while with me.


You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains,
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas,
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders,
You raise me up To more than I can be.


You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up To more than I can be.


You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains,
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas,
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders,
You raise me up To more than I can be.


You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains,
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas,
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders,
You raise me up To more than I can be.



You raise me up To more than I can be.

Izzie, both of your songs by Westlife were fabulous. More Than Words is what I have always claimed to be the real love, Britess, and Raise Me Up is the story of parents and the gratitude of their children. Thanks, gal.

Hey, Brit. You know, of course, how I love Marvin Gaye. Have not heard that one, but he is great as usual.

edgar, Yes, Bob Luman is right. Let's think about livin' while we can. Great song, Texas. Thanks!

Can't wait for our puppy to arrive, because TCM is featuring Lost Horizon. More synchronicity, because today is Edward Everett Horton's birthday and he narrated Fractured Fairy Tales which involved Rocky and Bullwinkle. He starred in Lost Horizon.

From the Letterman(inspired by The Four Freshmen)

Hey, Brit. Loved your log off song by Booker T. I, too, love green onions. Use to eat them right out of the ground with a bit of salt. Cool My goodness, Barry. I am quite certain that Mod is nowhere as handsome as you. Loved the comparison, however.

Queen Latifah is a fantastic vocalist as is Al Green. Did not like her remake of The Lavender Hill Mob, however.

Well, puppy, you missed my comment about Lost Horizon. It was remade in 1973.

I put the book by James Hilton on my reading list for the students, and I overheard one say, "That book was sooooo boring."

Thanks for the septet of notables, puppy and the additional info about others. Loved the Charlie Pride song as well.

Here's one by Irene Cara, folks.

Ah Letty, I did indeed miss your comment about Lost Horizon. I've already recorded it on a DVD, though. I also saw the musical remake with Peter Finch, which didn't fare too well. What can one say -- there's only one Ronald Colman.

I watched "The Hurricane" on TCM, which I also recorded onto a DVD, for the umpteenth time. I just can't get away from those oldies. Laughing

@Raggedyaggie,
Absolutely, Raggedy. The originals are always the best. Found this, puppy.


Shangri-La is a fictional place described in the 1933 novel Lost Horizon by British author James Hilton. In the book, "Shangri-La" is a mystical, harmonious valley, gently guided from a lamasery, enclosed in the western end of the Kunlun Mountains. Shangri-La has become synonymous with any earthly paradise but particularly a mythical Himalayan utopia"a permanently happy land, isolated from the outside world. In the novel Lost Horizon, the people who live at Shangri-La are almost immortal, living years beyond the normal lifespan and only very slowly aging in appearance. The word also evokes the imagery of exoticism of the Orient. The story of Shangri-La is based on the concept of Shambhala, a mystical city in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition

Ah, the mystical. Atlantis, Brigadoon, Shangri-La.

Another birthday, folks. Don't know this guy, but here's to him.

@Letty,
That's an interesting article on Shangri-La, Letty.

I remember Brad Dourif as the young man (Billy Babbitt) who committed suicide in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and the young man in love with Evelyn Nesbitt in "Ragtime". He's been on lots of TV programs. Seems like all his later movies fall into the horror category. I don't watch horror - with the exception of the news on TV.

@Raggedyaggie,
Hee, hee. The news on TV? Loved that one, puppy. I recall those movies, just don't remember Brad Dourif in them.

Thinking about Peter Graves and Mission Impossible. (Tom Cruise did it as well, but he just doesn't strike the right chord with me)

Listen to this kid play the theme, folks. Amazing.

@edgarblythe,
Love that Beatles song, edgar. Thanks, buddy. Don't overdo, now.

Time for me to say goodnight, and I shall do so with two songs.

The first one we'll dedicate to the hamburgers(another serendipity)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnU_nMYb0C4&feature=related

And finally, a marvelous comparison of two great voices and I agree with the guy who explains it.

From Letty (who is still hanging in there)

with love.
