“The pain of love is the
pain of being alive.
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today's song is brought to you directly by Rosemary Clooney, who delights in singing it in my ear each night just as I'm trying to fall asleep. Thanks for the lullabies, Rosie - I think......
BONUS - Hey There - Rosemary Clooney
|"Hey There" is a
The Pajama Game, written by
Richard Adler and
Jerry Ross. It was published in
It was subsequently recorded by a number of artists. The recording by Rosemary Clooney reached #1 on Billboard's chart in 1954. Another version was also recorded about the same time by Sammy Davis, Jr., reaching #16 on Billboard's retail chart. The song (counting all recorded versions) also reached #1 on the Cash Box chart in 1954.
In the context of the show, Sid sings it to a recording device, telling himself that he's foolish to continue his advances to Babe. He plays the tape back, and after responding to his own comments, sings a duet with himself.

From Harry Covert ('57) of MD - 03/25/15 - "ELEANOR, ROSA, BARBARA & BARBARA":
A Change for the $20 Bill?
By Harry M. Covert
The movement has started. Not quite sure how long it will be before it’s consummated but the train is moving. To be somewhat honest I figure midway through the first term of the first woman president the $20 bill will have a new face.
I well know that change is coming for a new frontispiece to replace that old rogue Andrew Jackson, the seventh president. He’s had it long enough, 87 years. But, friends in Lexington, VA., don’t get too excited. Thomas Jonathan “Stonewall” Jackson isn’t going to be the new person or even considered.
The U. S. Bureau of Engraving is being assaulted to make some changes. Why not, I ask? Lots of activity with suggestions and nominations are being lined up.
Where the Barbaras Count
I haven’t taken any polls to find out just who Marylander’s prefer for the “double-sawbuck.” No, not Senator Barbara Mikulski, yet. To be considered for the honor nominees must be dead, in the world here-after. There would be lots of squawking if Barbara Fritchie from Frederick were nominated. She was also known as Barbara Frietchie, sometimes spelled Frietschie.
There’s no need to discuss the pros and cons of the war of Northern Aggression. I want to get my two cents in before the big dogs get into action. Without question, Eleanor Roosevelt, should have the honor above all. She was quite a person in her own right, raised a distinguished family and was married to that fellow FDR.
Other worthy candidates are out there and it is high time to change that paper money design. The current Jackson didn’t even like paper money. It is rather pleasant though to have a bunch of Jacksons in the wallets or pockets.
Examinations of the facial makeup of paper denominations will undoubtedly bring about maybe updating the $2 bill. That’s the bill of Thomas Jefferson. For those historical revisionists and other naysayers, he was author of the Declaration of Independence and the Statute of Virginia for Religious Freedom.
Mr. Jefferson also brought home the tomato after some time as ambassador to France. I didn’t forget. He had an influence on wine, wine-making and other endeavors of societal impact.
Back to the $2 note. They are in circulation and are fun to use.
While we are considering the $20 bill, let’s get the ball rolling, why not add photos on the front and back of all denominations? Why only one person per bill? I wouldn’t object to Eleanor Roosevelt on the front and say, for example, Rosa Parks on the reverse. Or, why not several different $20 bills?
‘My Day’ and No Ghost-Writer
I am not going to be shocked at all if there is a woman president in the White House in a couple of years. There will be lots of changes when that happens and the Bureau of Engraving, with or without Congressional support, will follow the rules of Madam Chief Executive. I still prefer Ms. Roosevelt. She wrote My Day, a six-day newspaper column for years while handling the duties of First Lady and mothering six children.
For that column alone column, which she wrote without a ghost writer, she should be honored and remembered. What discipline she had.
There are some numismatists with other ideas and some political wits who think there should be a $3 bill. There are lots of candidates for this odd number. But naming them would not be nice because that denomination would be for not popular people. Swirling about are Harding, Coolidge, Hoover, Nixon, Carter. This is not a nice thing to do in these quarters though most certainly there are other candidates.
American currency is something else and is the envy of the world. The Benjamin Franklins, the hundred-dollar paper, is popular too. I don’t hear any movement to put Bill Gates anywhere. His stock certificates though are worth having laying around in a personal or bank safe deposit box.◄◄◄◄◄
Thank you, Harry!

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 03/26/15:
|Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson
went on a camping trip. After a good meal and a bottle of wine, they lay
down for the night, and went to sleep.
Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend.
"Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."
Watson replied, "I see millions and millions of stars."
"What does that tell you?" Holmes asked.
Watson pondered for a minute:
"Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that God is all-powerful and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?"
Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke.
"Watson, you idiot. Somebody has stolen our tent!"

Words and Music by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross for "The Pajama Game"Recorded by Rosemary Clooney, 1954
You with the stars in your eyes
Love's never made a fool of you
You used to be too wise.
You on that high-flying cloud
Though he won't throw a crumb to you
You think someday he'll come to you.
Better forget him
Him with his nose in the air
He's got you dancing on a string
Break it and he won't care
Won't you take this advice
I hand you like a mother
Or are you not seeing things too clear?
Are you too much in love to hear?
Is it all going in one ear
And out the other?
(repeat last verse)
