If I go away
What would still remain of me?
The ghost within your eyes?
The whisper in your sighs?
You see...Believe
And I'm always there.”

- Jon Oliva
(b. 22 July 1960)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Actually, I haven't said much of anything today, sooo.....

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0DcV1UI1B6M - Things We Said Today - The Beatles, Live at Indiana State Fair, September 3, 1964


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Things_We_Said_Today:

"Things We Said Today" is a song by The Beatles written by Paul McCartney[1] and credited to Lennon/McCartney. It was composed for the film A Hard Day's Night and appears on the soundtrack album. It was also released as the B-side of the "A Hard Day's Night" single in the UK.

McCartney wrote the song in May 1964 while cruising the Caribbean aboard a yacht called Happy Days with his then-girlfriend Jane Asher.[2] Music critic Ian MacDonald said, "The sombre lyric—provoked by the frustrating interruptions of a relationship between two career people—matches the lowering gloom of the music."[1]

The song is one of three main compositions (along with "And I Love Her" and "Can't Buy Me Love") that Paul McCartney wrote for The Beatles' film. Recorded in advance of film production for lip-synching reasons, "Things We Said Today" has a reverse nostalgia premise. McCartney said, "I wrote this on acoustic. It was a slightly nostalgic thing already, a future nostalgia. We’ll remember the things we said today, sometime in the future, so the song projects itself into the future."[3]

McCartney was particularly satisfied with his chord change, F major to B flat major—instead of the more obvious F minor—which first occurs beneath "…wishing you weren't so far away" in the song.[4] John Lennon accentuates McCartney's strident acoustic guitar strumming by triple hitting a low A note on a piano. The tempo of the song moves from ballad to rock and back with a minor to major key change during its middle eight section.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 06/22/15:

 

“So often we get caught up in the illusion that there is something just beyond our reach that would bring us happiness: a better family situation, a better financial situation, or the end of a challenging trial. The older we get, the more we look back and realize that external circumstances don’t really matter or determine our happiness. We do matter. We determine our happiness. You and I are ultimately in charge of our own happiness.”

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


   Thanks so much, Susan!

        From George Helliesen ('61) of VA - 06/22/15 - "Facebook":

I'm trying to make friends outside of facebook, while applying the same principal:

Everyday I go down the street and tell passersby what I have eaten, how I feel, what I did the night before and what I will be doing today. I show them pictures of my wife, my daughter, my dog and me gardening and spending time in the pool.
 
I also listen to their conversations and I tell them I love them.
 
And it works! I already have 3 persons following me: 2 police officers and a psychiatrist.

      Thanks, George!


Nobody comes here anymore, it's too crowded.”

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 06/23/15:

An elderly couple was in bed one night and the woman woke up from a bad dream. She was scared and panicking. Her husband awoke, turned the light on to calm her, and asked what was wrong.

She said, "I had a dream that I died and you got remarried. If I died tomorrow would you get remarried?"

He said, "Sure, I don’t want to spend the rest of my life lonely."

Then she asked, "Well, would you two live in this house?"

He replied, "Certainly, we just finished paying off our mortgage."

She asked again, angry now, "Well, would she sleep in this bed?"

He snickered and said, "Yes, of course, this bed is brand new and expensive; there's no reason to rid of it."

She asked irately, "Well, would she use my golf clubs?"

He replied with a straight, serious face, "No. She's left handed."

Things We Said Today

Written by Paul McCartney (b. 18 June 1942) and credited to Lennon/McCartney.

Recorded by The Beatles, 1964
 

You say you will love me
If I have to go
You'll be thinking of me
somehow I will know
Someday when I'm lonely
wishing you weren't so far away
Then I will remember
Things we said today

You said you'll be mine, girl
'til the end of time
These days such a kind girl
seems so hard to find
Someday when we're dreaming
deep in love, not a lot to say
Then we will remember
Things we said today

Me I'm just the lucky kind
Love to hear you say that love is love
And though we may be blind
Love is here to stay and that's enough

To make you mine, girl
be the only one
loves me all the time, girl
we'll go on and on

Some day when we're dreaming
deep in love not a lot to say
Then we will remember
Things we said today

Me I'm just the lucky kind
Love to hear you say that love is love
And though we may be blind
Love is here to stay and that's enough

To make you mine, girl
believe only one
loves me all the time, girl
we'll go on and on

Some day when we're dreaming
deep in love not a lot to say
Then we will remember
Things we said today
