“All I know is that you love me...in my dreams.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today's theme is prompted by the prevailing state of my mind for the past couple of months. Apparently it happens about this same time every year.
BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTsvs-pAGDc - Dazed and Confused - Jake Holmes, June 1967 (no video)
BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lkb1R_yif9I - Dazed and Confused - Led Zeppelin, Supershow, 1969
|"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.
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. 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":
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. This court case (Case No. CV10-4789-DMG-PJW) was "dismissed with prejudice", presumably because the parties settled out of court—in January 2012.
..... The song is included in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.

Summary of eRumor:
This is a forwarded email about a book written by Admiral
Chester Nimitz called Reflections on Pearl Harbor.
In it, Nimitz noted three important mistakes made by the
Japanese when they attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7,
The book is currently out of print and the TruthOrFiction.com team is working on obtaining a copy of this out of print book.

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 is one of my favorite, most adaptable patterns from a while back; I also featured it here:|
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 six decades of practice)! I used 1/4" white ribbon to trim these smaller versions, which are about 2'' high and 3" wide.
BONUS VALENTINE KNIT PATTERN:
|Nazanin S. Fard's Valentine Heart Doily - "Knit this beauty for Valentine’s Day, but enjoy it any time of the year! The elegant spiral center is surrounded by a border of lacy eyelet hearts and finished with delicate chain scallops at the edge."|

FINALLY:From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/02/18:
A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of blood. Trying to make the matter clearer, he said: "Now, students, if I stood on my head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I should turn red in the face."
"Yes," the pupils said.
"Then why is it that while I am standing upright the blood doesn't run into my feet?"
A little boy shouted, "It's because your feet aren't empty."
