Chapel of Love
“Strike an average between what a woman
thinks of her husband
Mencken, A Book of Burlesques, 1916
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
For some reason I was thinking today's theme song was written about eight years earlier than it was. My mind plays funny tricks on me from time to time!
BONUS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTq7w8P6_2I - Chapel of Love - The Dixie Cups, 1964
|"Chapel of Love" is a song written by
Ellie Greenwich and
Phil Spector, and made famous by
The Dixie Cups in 1964, spending three weeks at number one on the
Billboard Hot 100. There have also been many other versions
of this song. This was also the debut release of the new
Red Bird Records run by
Jerry Leiber and
Mike Stoller along with
The song tells of the happiness and excitement the narrator feels on her wedding day, for she and her love are going to the "chapel of love", and "we'll never be lonely anymore." Previously recorded by The Ronettes and The Blossoms, the definitive version of the song was recorded by The Dixie Cups in 1964. The first recorded version was done by Darlene Love in April 1963.

YOWZERONI! Thank you, Sarah Sugah! This is the second time in 2015 this faulty linking has happened, and we're not even two weeks into the New Year! The problem lies in the way those odious announcements are sent.
My mailing list consists of eight batches, each containing about 75 names. What goes to the first batch is then recopied and sent to the other seven batches. This takes anywhere from ten to twelve minutes each day. If the first announcement is correct, the other seven will follow suit - and the reverse is equally true. The sad truth is I have no way of checking those links in advance. Once the announcements go, they're gone, never to be recalled or amended, nor am I able to correct them for 24 hours.
As some issue with the linking has obviously arisen which I cannot identify in advance nor correct, from henceforth we will have a new announcement procedure.
announcement will contain the main link with a note of what to seek. For
instance, this one would probably say:
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

BONUS LOVE KNOT CROCHET PATTERN:
http://www.joyfulabode.com/solomons-knot-shawl/ - Emily Chappelle's Solomon’s Knot Shawl -"The Solomon’s Knot Shawl is definitely my most popular pattern. There aren’t that many patterns out there that use this stitch, but it’s a shame… the Solomon’s Knot stitch (aka True Lover’s Knot Stitch, Hail Stone Stitch, or Love Knot Stitch) is beautiful and a great way to show off special yarn."
BONUS COUPLES SHOWER RECIPES:
http://allrecipes.com/howto/couples-shower/ - Couples Shower - "Kick off the happily-ever-after with a shower for the bride and the groom. Food creates a sense of occasion and gives everyone something to do while they're meeting new people, chatting with old friends, and sizing up the future in-laws. This classic shower finger food menu features smoked salmon and feta cheese parcels, bites of crisp cucumber and grassy dill over savory cream cheese, and luscious little cupcakes drizzled with raspberry puree..."
