“Kisses kept are wasted; Love is to be tasted.
There are some you love, I know; Be not loathe to tell them so.
Lips go dry and eyes grow wet Waiting to be warmly met.
Keep them not in waiting yet; Kisses kept are wasted.”

-  Edmund Vance Cooke
 (05 June 1866 - 18 Dec 1932)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Here's a golden oldie from the early sixties!

BONUS #1 - Boys - The Shirelles

BONUS #2 - Boys - The Beatles, Live


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boys_%28The_Shirelles_song%29

"Boys" is a song by Luther Dixon and Wes Farrell, originally performed by The Shirelles and released as the B-side of their "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" single in November 1960. It was covered by The Beatles and included on their first album released in the United Kingdom, Please Please Me (1963).

The Beatles' version was recorded at Abbey Road Studios on February 11, 1963 in a single take, and is Ringo Starr's first recorded lead vocals with the Beatles; and, as the fifth track on the Beatles first album, Please Please Me, represents the first time many fans heard Starr singing on a lead vocal...[1]

     From Me ('65) of NC - 06/16/14 - "Jewelry Cleaner":

  Jewelry Cleaner

1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon dish detergent
1 cup water
1 piece aluminum foil

Directions:
1. Heat water in the microwave for 1 or 2 minutes.
2. Cut a piece of aluminum foil that roughly covers the bottom of a small bowl (like a cereal bowl).
3. Pour hot water into bowl. Place salt, soda, and dish washing liquid into bowl. Place jewelry on top of foil and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse jewelry in cool water and dry jewelry completely with soft cloth. Discard solution after use and make a new batch next time.
4. According to wire-sculpture.com, "this works well for gold-filled, brass, German (nickel) silver, and sterling silver. I have even cleaned jewelry with freshwater pearls, shell cameos and mother of pearl with no problem."

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 06/15/14:

 

A man started a new job at a zoo. He was given his first job by the zoo owner – to clean out the large tropical fish tank, which contained many exotic species.

While removing some gravel from the tank with his spade, he accidentally hit one of the fish and killed it. Worried about losing his job for this mistake, he decided to hide the evidence. He took the fish and fed it to the lions because lions eat anything.

The zoo owner did not notice the missing fish and gave the man a new job – to muck out the chimps. He was in the middle of mucking out when two of the chimps became a bit over familiar and in an attempt to get them away, the man lashed out with his spade, killing two chimps. In his panic he decided to hide the evidence and fed the unfortunate chimpanzees to the lions because lions eat anything.

The zoo owner was pleased with the man’s work and as his final task for the day he asked him to collect honey from the zoo’s beehives. The man tried hard to do this without upsetting the bees, but some got angry and stung him. He grabbed his spade and whirled it above his head, squashing and killing several dozen bees. Plagued with guilt, he fed these to the lions as well because lions eat anything.

The next day, a new lion arrived at the zoo. He enquired of the existing residents, “What’s the food like here?”

One of the zoo’s resident lions said, “Oh, it’s great. Only yesterday we had fish, chimps, and mushy bees.”

Recorded by The Beatles, 1963
 

I've been told when a boy kiss a girl
Take a trip around the world
Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey
Yes they say you do

My girl says when I kiss her lips
Get the thrill thru fingertips
Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey
Yeah she said you do

Well I talk about boys
Don't you know I mean boys
Well I talk about boys now
Ah, boys
Well I talk about boys now
What a bundle of joy

My girl says when I kiss her lips
Get the thrill thru fingertips
Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey
Yeah she said you do

Well I talk about boys
Don't you know I mean boys
Well I talk about boys now
Ah, boys
Well I talk about boys now
What a bundle of joy
