“Millions and millions of years would still not give me
Friends and Schoolmates,
We haven't had any Beatles' songs lately.....
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hf3yL7Gixvg - Hold Me Tight - The Beatles, 1963
|It was first recorded during the
Please Please Me album session, but not selected for inclusion
and re-recorded for their second album. It was the first of only two occasions
when a song title was held over from one Beatles album to appear on the next, "Wait"
then included on
Soul) being the other.
"Hold Me Tight" was composed principally by McCartney in 1961, and was part of The Beatles stage act until 1963. In their best-selling The Beatles: An Illustrated Record, Roy Carr and Tony Tyler call it the album's poorest track, saying it "fails because McCartney's vision of the complete tune obviously sagged somewhat, and his distressingly out-of-tune singing became quite embarrassing after only a few bars."
Paul McCartney and
Lennon had, at one time or another, shared their distaste for the song, and
in a 1980s interview with
Lewisohn in The Beatles Recording Sessions, McCartney says, "I can't
remember much about that one. Certain songs were just 'work' songs, you haven't
got much memory of them.

THIS DAY IN 1963:
From Frances Heath Scott ('62) of VA - 05/08/13, 2:19 PM - "Another update!":
Would you believe, JoAnn (Scott Fowler - '58) and Bobby (Fowler) have just left my house ? (Here for reunion.) Of course, you KNOW what I asked and both began laughing. Tom (Scott - Class of 1961) and I dated for four years and were married for 41 years, before I lost him in 2010. During all that time, I always said '55 for Bobby's class and nothing was ever said. (I guess no one ever noticed.) You are absolutely correct and I am absolutely incorrect.......Bobby graduated in 1956. Sorry I caused you all that extra computer work, as if you needed it, and my apologies to Joe!
We should not question our computer whiz.....even if it is family! At least I had JoAnn's class correct!
From Phil Hammond ('64) of FL - 05/08/13 - "The Players Championship 2013":
This is the main event in Jacksonville for golfers and I love volunteering. I also get to play the course this summer for my long hours standing and watching. This year I will be a marshal on the first hole. I will be located at the T box on Thursday, Friday at the green and Sat-Sunday on the fairways. My job is to keep the public outside of the ropes and quiet. They also cannot take pictures. So look for me with my new red golf shoes.

|Sylvia and Phil Hammond||Tiger Woods|
WOWZERONI - SO COOL! It's a well known fact that what I don't know about golf would fill even more volumes than what I don't know about Florida history, but even I can recognize Tiger Woods! You and Sylvia have fun, Phil - and thanks for sharing these images with us!
From My Friend, Melanie, of TX - 05/07/13 - "FAT FLUSH WATER":
Wash grapefruit, tangerine cucumber and peppermint leaves. Slice cucumber, grapefruit and tangerine (or peel). Combine all ingredients (fruits, vegetables, 8 oz water, and ice) into a large pitcher.
Stir & Enjoy!
| OOH -
and beautiful too!
A dozen years ago I had a pitcher just like this one and mint growing
all over my yard.....
OH - quick thought: if you
are taking blood pressure medication, check before eating (or drinking!)
grapefruit. It's generally a no-no!
From My Friend, Chuck (Hillsboro HS, IL - '84), of IL - 05/08/13 - "Admit It...":
From My Friend, Tina, of NC - 05/08/13 - "Millionaire":

Frank was madly in love with Susan, but couldn’t get up enough courage to pop the question face to face. Finally he decided to ask her on the telephone.
“Darling! He blurted
out, “Will you marry me?”

It feels so right now, hold me tight,
Tell me I'm the only one,
And then I might,
Never be the lonely one.
So hold me tight, to-night, to-night,
It's you, you you you - oo-oo - oo-oo.
Hold me tight,
Let me go on loving you,
Making love to only you,
So hold me tight, to-night, to-night,
It's you, you you you - oo-oo - oo-oo.
Don't know what it means to hold you tight,
Being here alone tonight with you,
It feels so right now, feels so right now.
