Jump!

Mama exhorted her children at every
opportunity to 'jump at the sun.'
We might not land on the sun, but
at least we would get off the ground.”

- Zora Neale Hurston
(07 Jan 1891 - 28 Jan 1960 )

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Van Halen?!?  Okay.....  

BONUS - Jump - Van Halen, 1984


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jump_%28Van_Halen_song%29

"Jump" is a song released on December 21, 1983 by the American rock group Van Halen. It is the only single the group released in their career to reach number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.[1] It was released in 1984 as the second track on the album 1984. The song breaks the mold of earlier Van Halen songs, mainly in its rolling synth line (played on an Oberheim OB-Xa), although the song contains the standard Eddie Van Halen guitar solo, which Eddie claims as his favorite solo he never wrote. This refers to the fact that the producer spliced parts of two different takes to create the one heard in the song.

"Jump" may be Van Halen's most popular and instantly recognizable composition, perhaps because its sound embodies the key aspects of both of the two genres of popular music most associated with the 1980s in America: synth-driven pop and "arena"-style metal. It was inspired by famed martial artist Benny Urquidez, of whom David Lee Roth was a student. The song changed the future and style of Van Halen from being a predominantly hard rock band to one of more radio-oriented popular music...

From My Friend, Laura, of NC - 05/01/15:

“Selfless acts of service and consecration refine our spirits, remove the scales from our spiritual eyes, and open the windows of heaven. By becoming the answer to someone’s prayer, we often find the answer to our own.”

- Dieter F. Uchtdorf
(b. 06 Nov 1940)

    Thanks so much, Laura!

Check out Amazing GDSF WW1 Steam Convoy

Watch the hands of the drivers and remember power steering had not been invented yet. I know I've seen this one; I enjoyed a second look. I think Bovington England houses the largest armor and tank collection in the world, and I assume these steam powered vehicles are part of that collection.

Owwww!
I get up, and nothin' gets me down
You got it tough, I've seen the toughest around
And I know, baby, just how you feel
You got to roll with the punches and get to what's real

Ah, can't ya see me standin' here
I got my back against the record machine
I ain't the worst that you've seen
Ah, can't ya see what I mean?

Ah, might as well jump. Jump!
Might as well jump
Go ahead an' jump. Jump!
Go ahead and jump

Ow-oh! Hey, you! Who said that? Baby, how you been?
You say you don't know, you won't know until you begin

So can't ya see me standing here
I got my back against the record machine
I ain't the worst that you've seen
Ah, can't ya see what I mean?

Ah, might as well jump. Jump!
Go ahead and jump
Might as well jump. Jump!
Go ahead and jump
Jump!

(Guitar Solo)

Might as well jump. Jump!
Go ahead and jump
Get it in, jump. Jump!
Go ahead and jump
Jump! Jump! Jump! Jump!
