“If you believe that feeling bad or worrying long enough will change a past or future event,
then you are residing on another planet with a different reality system.”

- William James
(11 Jan 1842 - 26 Aug 1910)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   It seems like a Beatles sort of day.....

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLhoNBNpuOQ - There's a Place


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/There%27s_a_Place:  

"There's a Place" is a song composed by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, and was first released as a track on the Beatles' debut LP, Please Please Me. Lennon and McCartney share lead vocals, with George Harrison providing backing vocals.

The title was inspired by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim's "Somewhere" from West Side Story, which contained the line: "There's a place for us." McCartney owned the album of the soundtrack at the time of writing "There's a Place" and acknowledges its influence.[1] The "place" in question was "the mind", making its subject matter slightly more cerebral than Britain's kissing and cuddling songs and America's surf music from that period.[2] Lennon is quoted as saying: "'There's a Place' was my attempt at a sort of Motown, black thing. [2] It says: 'In my mind there's no sorrow...' It's all in your mind."

Composed at McCartney's Forthlin Road home, it was part of the group's stage repertoire in 1963.[3] With its major seventh harmonica intro (later reprised) and searing two-part vocal harmonies in fifths (Lennon low, McCartney high), it stands out as an early Beatles milestone track. The song was recorded on 11 February 1963 in ten takes during the first of three sessions for Please Please Me.[4]

The song was officially credited to "McCartney–Lennon", as were all other Lennon–McCartney compositions on the original UK release of Please Please Me...


ALERT:

   My computer - or rather my FTP - is having problems uploading items to the internet. It will do it; it just requires eight times longer to accomplish it. Something about too many files...

   At nearly the same moment, my daughter's actual computer began experiencing REAL problems - such as its imminent demise. We are therefore splitting computer time on my PC until some other arrangement can be made.

   Even without a crystal ball, I can foresee some serious delays in our future.

   No, wait a minute, this is happening in real time. Sigh.

   "Hold your hats, boys, here we go again!"

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 04/19/15:

A woman was in the bar of a cruise ship and she asked the bartender for a scotch and two drops of water. As the bartender gave her the drink, she says, "It's my birthday today, and I'm on the cruise to celebrate my 80th birthday."

The bartender said, "Well, since it's your birthday I'll buy you a drink; in fact, I'll take care of this one for you."

As the women finished her drink the woman to her right said, "I guess I should buy you a drink."

The old woman said, "All right. Bartender, I want a scotch and two drops of water."

"All right," said the bartender. As she finished her drink, the man to her right said, "Since I'm the only one around you that hasn't bought you a drink, I guess I might as well buy you one."

The old woman said, "All right. Bartender, I want a scotch and two drops of water."

"Coming right up," the bartender said. As he gave her the drink he asked, "Ma'am, I'm dying of curiosity. Why the scotch and only two drops of water?"

The old woman replied, "Sonny, you'll learn that when you're my age, you can hold your liquor but you sure can't hold your water."

There's a Place

Words and Music by John Lennon (09 Oct 1940 – 08 Dec 1980) and Paul McCartney (b. 18 June 1942)

Recorded byThe Beatles, 1963


There is a place,
Where I can go,
When I feel low,
When I feel blue.
And it's my mind,
And there's no time when I'm alone.

I think of you,
And things you do,
Go 'round my head,
The things you said,
Like "I love only you."

In my mind there's no sorrow,
Don't you know that it's so.
There'll be no sad tomorrow,
Don't you know that it's so.

There is a place,
Where I can go,
When I feel low,
When I feel blue.
And it's my mind,
And there's no time when I'm alone.
There's a place ...
