Dazed and Confused

All I know is that you love me...in my dreams.”

 - Winnie-the-Pooh, as related by A. A. Milne
(18 Jan 1882 - 31 Jan 1956)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,  

   Today's theme is prompted by the prevailing state of my mind for the past couple of months.....

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dazed_and_Confused_%28song%29: 

"Dazed and Confused" is a song originally written and performed by Jake Holmes. It was covered by the Yardbirds, and later reworked by Led Zeppelin who hold a separate copyright on the song.[1]

Singer-songwriter Jake Holmes wrote and recorded "Dazed and Confused" for his debut solo album "The Above Ground Sound" of Jake Holmes, released in June 1967. Like the other tracks on the album, the song does not include any drums. It was recorded entirely with the trio of Holmes on guitar, keyboard and vocals, Ted Irwin on guitar and Rick Randle on bass.[2][3] The song has been incorrectly labelled as a tale about a bad acid trip. Holmes himself has confirmed that this is not the case. In 2001 he gave an interview to Shindig! magazine and said this about "Dazed and Confused":

I never took acid. I smoked grass and tripped on it, but I never took acid. I was afraid to take it. The song's about a girl who hasn't decided whether she wants to stay with me or not. It's pretty much one of those love songs.[4]

In June 2010, Jake Holmes sued Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page for copyright infringement, claiming to have written and recorded "Dazed and Confused" two years before it appeared on Led Zeppelin's debut album. In court documents Holmes cited a 1967 copyright registration for "Dazed and Confused" which was renewed in 1995.[5] This court case (Case No. CV10-4789-DMG-PJW) was "dismissed with prejudice", presumably because the parties settled out of court—in January 2012.[6]

..... The song is included in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.

    Thanks so much, Susan!


     From Henry Hoyle ('65) of Northern VA - 02/02/14:

Hi Cousin Carol,

Blessings,
Cousin Henry

   Thank you so very much, Cousin Henry!


       From My Daughter, Adrienne Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL) of NC - 02/02/15 - "When You Go":

Mama, doesn't this song just make you want to dance?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCH87-cbDpA

   OOOH! Yes, it does! Thanks for sharing it, Adrienne!


        From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 02/02/15 - "Life from the seat of a tractor":

This is so true! Life from the seat of a tractor.

An old Farmer's Words of Wisdom we could all live by.......

Old Farmer's Advice:

Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.

Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.

Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.

Words that soak into your ears are whispered... not yelled.

Meanness don't just happen overnight.

Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.

Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.

It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge.

You cannot unsay a cruel word.

Every path has a few puddles.

When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.

The best sermons are lived, not preached.

Most of the stuff people worry about ain't never gonna happen anyway.

Don't judge folks by their relatives.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Live a good, honorable life... Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.

Don't interfere with something that ain't bothering you none.

Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a Rain dance.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging.

Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.

The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every morning.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than putting it back in.

If you get to thinking you're a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else's dog around..

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply.

Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.
 
     These are positively delicious, Dools! Thanks so much!


    From Mayim Bialik (North Hollywood High School, CA - '93) of CA - 02/02/15 - "Don't Fall for that Similac Commercial":

Remember how everyone got mad at me because I didn't like "Frozen"? Well, I don't like that Similac ad about ending mommy wars either, so prepare to be mad at me again! Wrote about why for Kveller.com.

http://www.kveller.com/mayim-bialik-dont-fall-for-that-similac-commercial/

   Mad at you?!? You'll hear nothing but applause from me, Mayim! Thank you so much!

   I can no longer remember the exact quotation (nor can I seem to find it), but I believe the anthropologist Ashley Montagu (28 June 1905 - 26 Nov 1999) once said, "The greatest forces for evil in this world are those which seek to keep a child from its mother's breast."


        From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 02/02/15 - "A quick must see about religion":

I think that this might have been around earlier, but it bears repeating because the message is so strong. Without religion as most Americans know it, there would be no America. May we always remember who we are, why we are here on Earth, and where we hope to be when this life ends. God Bless America!

Interesting, and food for thought.

  Confusing……..or maybe tooooo true!

     Thanks, Dools!

Believe it or not, I actually knew some of these facts!

   WOWZERS! Thank you, Haul Party!

 
 


       From George Helliesen ('61) of MI (soon to be VA) - 01/30/15 - "Priceless Pets (#3 in a series of 22)":

 

For once he gets to be the big spoon.

     AWW! Thanks, George!

 
 


BONUS VALENTINE CROCHET PATTERN (Wal, you wouldn't want a confusing pattern, would ja? ):

http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/tree-hearts - Linda Cyr's Tree Hearts - This was one of my favorite, most adaptable patterns from a while back; I also featured it here:

http://nnhs65.com/12-05-11-NNHS-The-First-Noel.html
 

     It's quite pretty made with worsted weight yarn, but when worked with two strands of #10 crochet thread held together using a size B crochet hook, it creates a very elegant heart - and as suitable for Valentine's Day as for Christmas!

   The design works up quickly. It takes me about an hour a heart - and I am a super-slow crocheter (despite 57 years of practice)! I used 1/4" white ribbon to trim these smaller versions, which are about 2'' high and 3" wide.

 
 


BONUS DAZED RECIPE:

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/02/15:

A new business was opening, and one of the owner’s friends sent flowers for the occasion. But when the owner read the card with the flowers, it said. “Rest in Peace”

The owner was little upset and called the florist to complain. After he had told the florist about the obvious mistake, the florist said, “Sir, I’m really sorry for the mistake, but rather than getting angry, you should imagine this: Somewhere there is a funeral taking place today, and they have flowers with a note saying, “Congratulations on your new location.”


DATES TO REMEMBER:

Dazed and Confused

Written and recorded by Jake Holmes, 1967
 (b. 28 Dec 1939)

Recorded by Led Zeppelin, 1969


Been dazed and confused for so long it's not true.
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Lots of people talk and few of them know,
soul of a woman was created below.

You hurt and abuse tellin' all of your lies.
Run around sweet baby, Lord how they hypnotize.
Sweet little baby, I don't know where you've been.
Gonna love you baby, here I come again.

Every day I work so hard, bringin' home my hard earned pay
Try to love you baby, but you push me away.
Don't know where you're goin', only know just where you've been,
Sweet little baby, I want you again.

Been dazed and confused for so long, it's not true.
Wanted a woman, never bargained for you.
Take it easy baby, let them say what they will.
Will your tongue wag so much when I send you the bill?
