“The history of the world is the record of a man
in quest for his daily bread and butter
.

- Hendrik Willem van Loon
(14 Jan 1882 – 11 Mar 1944)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   How about a Golden Oldie from 1964?

BONUS - Bread and Butter - The Newbeats, 1964

                


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bread_and_Butter_%28The_Newbeats_song%29:

"Bread and Butter" is a 1964 song by The Newbeats. Written by Larry Parks and Jay Turnbow, "Bread and Butter" was the group's first and most popular hit, reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in September 1964 for two weeks,[1][2] while attaining the same position on Cashbox for one week.[3] The song reached #15 in the United Kingdom[4] and #8 in Australia. It sold over one million copies in the United States, attaining a gold disc.[1][4]

"Bread and Butter" served as The Newbeats' demo in an effort to obtain a recording contract with Hickory Records. They were then asked to formally record the track for the label.[1]

The opening two-chord piano riff and the lead falsetto singing voice of Larry Henley are notable features of the song...

  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 05/20/20, 5:26 AM:
 

  Good morning on Wednesday and if you are not already getting near the top of the HUMP, you better JUMP! Get up and get going. I know we like to procrastinate, but if we don't get things done, come the weekend it won't be fun as you carry over what wasn't done and worry about it instead of relaxing and doing the things you'd rather be doing. The Good Lord gave each of us a brain for a reason, so let's use it, figure out the order of march and hit that trail, be it work, chores or whatever. And ask Him for a little nudge and He'll get us moving. He's always there, but we have to ask. So, pump up the volume and let's go.

     Thank you, Jimmy!

From Jim Rohn's Newsletter - 05/18/15 - "The Miracle of Personal Development":

Why Personal Development Is Critical to Success

by Jim Rohn

Unless you change how you are, you'll always have what you've got.

We generally change ourselves for one of two reasons: inspiration or desperation. Well, the late Jim Rohn aimed for the inspiration, always emphasizing the importance of taking responsibility for self-improvement and showing people how to reach for bigger, better lives.

Who inspired him? His mentor, Earl Shoaff, who told him this: If you want to be wealthy and happy, learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job. And so began Jim Rohn's belief in the importance of self-improvement. In his classic book, 7 Strategies for Wealth and Happiness, Jim Rohn wrote an essay entitled "The Miracle of Personal Development" in which he explains why working on yourself is a never-ending pursuit:

Ever since Mr. Shoaff woke me up with that statement, I worked hard on my own personal growth, and I must admit that this was the most challenging assignment of all. But understand, this business of personal development lasts a lifetime.

You see, what you become is far more important than what you get. The important question to ask on the job is not, What am I getting? Instead, you should ask, What am I becoming? Getting and becoming are so closely intertwined—what you become directly influences what you get. Think of it this way: Most of what you have today you have attracted by becoming the person you are right now.

I've also found that income rarely exceeds personal development. Sometimes income takes a lucky jump, but unless you learn to handle the responsibilities that come with it, it will usually shrink back to the amount you can handle. If someone hands you a million dollars, you'd better hurry up and become a millionaire. A very rich man once said, "If you took all the money in the world and divided it equally among everybody, it would soon be back in the same pockets it was before."

It is hard to keep that which has not been obtained through personal development. So here's the great axiom of life:

To have more than you've got, become more than you are.

This is where you should focus most of your attention. Otherwise, you just might have to contend with the axiom of not changing, which is:

Unless you change how you are, you'll always have what you've got.

 From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 05/02/20, 11:51 AM - "Lovely Lavender" (#3 in a Series of 13):

 
One thing for sure is the quarantine has not only made us miss people, but also the beauty the world has to offer... I hope you enjoy these lovely pictures. I have been sending out a few of my favorite things, so the reason for the second song, plus the first one is really pretty, but not upbeat. 

 
"The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less."

 From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 05/14/20, 7:57 AM - "~'~ I Love Pink ~'~" (#3 in a Series of 20):

 
As we slowly venture back into the world, let's hope a new gentleness becomes our theme. Let's all be gentle with ourselves and others,  human and animal, as well as to the earth. This has been a trauma for so many. This brings me to another one of my favorite things, the softness of Pink. 

 
 “There is no energy greater than the power of Love. Once I finally embraced this concept, I realized that the path to Ascension always begins with the heart, and the color Pink.”

It is some simple, satisfying knitting, usually a ‘go to’ pattern with just enough interest to keep me going as a knitter. My first bread and butter project is an Antler cardigan, for me! It is a project I’ve been contemplating for some time now…"

FINALLY:


From www.ajokeaday.com - 05/19/15:

A couple was dressed and ready to go out for the evening. They phoned for a cab, turned on a night light, covered their pet parakeet, and put the cat out in the back yard.

The taxi arrived, and they opened the front door to leave. Suddenly the cat they put out scooted back into the house. They didn't want the cat shut in there because she always tried to eat the bird. The wife went out to the taxi while the husband went back in. The cat ran upstairs, with the man in hot pursuit.

The wife didn't want the driver to know the house would be empty. She explained to the taxi driver that her husband would be out soon. "He's just going upstairs to say goodbye to my mother."

A few minutes later the husband got into the cab.

"Sorry I took so long," he said as they drove away. "Stupid hag was hiding under the bed. Had to poke her with a coat hanger to get her to come out! Then I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked. I hauled her fat butt downstairs and threw her out into the back yard!

The cab driver hit a parked car.

Bread and Butter

- Written by Larry Parks and Jay Turnbow

Recorded by The Newbeats, 1964


I like bread and butter,
I like toast and jam,
That's what my baby feeds me,
I'm her loving man.

He likes bread and butter,
He likes toast and jam,
That's what his baby feeds him,
He's her loving man.

She don't cook mashed potatoes,
She don't cook T-bone steaks,
Don't feed me peanut butter,
She knows that I can't take.

He likes bread and butter,
He likes toast and jam,
That's what his baby feeds him,
He's her loving man.

Got home early one morning,
Much to my surprise,
She was eating chicken and dumplings
With some other guy.

No more bread and butter,
No more toast and jam,
I found my baby eating
With some other man.
