What Is This Thing Called Love?
“Love withers under constraints: its very essence is liberty: it is compatible neither with obedience, jealousy, nor fear:
it is there most pure, perfect, and unlimited where its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve.”

Percy Bysshe Shelley

(4 Aug 1792 - 8 July 1822)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Ahhh, Cole Porter.....

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/What_Is_This_Thing_Called_Love%3F:

"What Is This Thing Called Love?" is a 1929 popular song written by Cole Porter, for the musical Wake Up and Dream. It was first performed by Elsie Carlisle in March 1929. The song has become a popular jazz standard and one of Porter's most often played compositions.[1]

Wake Up and Dream ran for 263 shows in London.[1] The show was also noticed in New York, and the critics praised Tilly Losch's performance of the song.[2] The show was produced on Broadway in December 1929; in the American rendition, "What Is This Thing Called Love" was sung by Frances Shelley. Ginny Simms performed the song in the 1946 biographical film about Porter's life, Night and Day.

Jazz musicians soon included the song in their repertoire. The recordings of Ben Bernie and Fred Rich made it to the charts in 1930, and the song was also recorded by stride pianist James P. Johnson, clarinetist Artie Shaw and guitarist Les Paul.[1] The piece is usually performed at a fast tempo; the 1956 recording of Clifford Brown and Max Roach with Sonny Rollins is one of the best-known uptempo instrumental versions. Saxophonist Sidney Bechet made a slow rendition in 1941 with Charlie Shavers...[1]

  This boat has been my therapy for the last 3 months.  I look forward to taking it to the lake across the street once I find the leaks in it!  Not sure what my next project will be.  Perhaps a Chris Craft motor boat?

  From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 04/08/14 - "UPDATED SENIOR DISCOUNT LIST":

Don't know if this is correct but might be worth looking into and asking!
 
Please pass this on to your senior friends. Let them know they must ask for the discount.

UPDATED SENIOR DISCOUNT LIST

As I was waiting in line behind an older gentleman at Wendy's recently, I heard him ask for his senior discount. The girl at the register apologized and charged him less. When I asked the man what the discount was, he told me that seniors over age 55 get 10% off everything on the menu, every day. Being of 'that' age myself, I figured I might as well ask for the discount too.

This incident prompted me to do some research, and I came across a list of restaurants, supermarkets, department stores, travel deals and other types of offers giving various discounts with different age requirements. I was actually surprised to see how many there are and how some of them start at the young age of 50. This list may not only be useful for you, but for your friends and family too.

This Thing Called Love  


FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 04/07/14:

One day a rich famous man went to buy a sport car from a dealership. The price of the car was $80,000 and the man had only $79,998 to pay.

The sales associate insisted that the price was firm and it had to be $80,000.

The man came out of the store and looked around and saw a poor man begging for help. He went toward him and introduced himself and asked if he was kind enough to lend him $2. The poor man asked the reason. He replied that he wanted to buy a car.

The poor man thought for a moment and gave the man $4 and said, "Please buy one for me, too."

What Is This Thing Called Love?

Written by Cole Porter (09 June 1891 – 15 Oct 1964), 1929


I was a hum-drum person
Leading a life apart
When love flew in through my window wide
And quickened my hum-drum heart
Love flew in through my window
I was so happy then
But after love had stayed a little while
Love flew out again

What is this thing called love?
This funny thing called love?
Just who can solve its mystery?
Why should it make a fool of me?
I saw you there one wonderful day
You took my heart and threw it away
That’s why I ask the lord in heaven above
What is this thing called love?

You gave me days of sunshine
You gave me nights of cheer
You made my life an enchanted dream
’til somebody else came near
Somebody else came near you
I felt the winter’s chill
And now I sit and wonder night and day
Why I love you still?
