|"I Believe" is the name of a
Jimmy Shirl and
Al Stillman in
I Believe was commissioned and introduced by Jane Froman on her television show, and became the first hit song ever introduced on TV. Froman, troubled by the uprising of the Korean conflict in 1952 so soon after World War II, asked Drake, Graham, Shirl and Stillman to compose a song that would offer hope and faith to the populace. In addition to Froman, "I Believe" has been recorded by many others, and has become both a popular and religious standard.
Frankie Laine had the big hit version of the song, which still holds the record for the most weeks spent at number one in the UK Singles Chart. However, that total of 18 weeks was not consecutive, as the hit had three separate periods at number one in the UK. For comparison the longest consecutive period at number one in the UK was 16 weeks by Bryan Adams with "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You" (1991), whilst Wet Wet Wet spent 15 consecutive weeks there in 1994 with "Love Is All Around".

THIS DAY IN 1964:
From Fred Field (June '45) of CA - 07/04/14 - "Barber Shops???":
|Hello Carol, 7-4-14
This morning I tried out my tired old (86) eyes on the Site Map.
I wanted to find a Barber Shop article that I had written about Jim Wilson's single chair shop on Buxton Avenue.
Couldn't find any Barber Shop articles.
Fred Field, June '45.
Fullerton & Loma Linda, CA
Fred, how can you be 86?!? Oh. Nevermind.....
I don't have a cover page for all the various peninsula barber shops; they're scattered alphabetically throughout Our Old Stomping Grounds.
Jim Wilson's Barber Shop even still contains your essay.
I enlarged all the fonts on the SITE MAP - which should make it easier for both of us to read. Thanks for the idea! That's assuming your browser accepted my "suggestion"; on my computer Mozilla did, but Google Chrome did not.....
The more I thought about it, the more I liked your suggestion of a grouping of barber shops, so I made a new page just for them (hope I didn't miss any of them!)
Our Old Barber Shops - NEW ON SITE!
Thanks so much, Fred!
From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of LA - 07/04/14 - "Family Fireworks":
Here is our firework buying detail... Notice the patriotic Eagle in the

Thanks so much, Brent! Such fun y'all are having!

BONUS I CAN'T BELIEVE RECIPE:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 07/04/14:
|So there's this man with a parrot. And his parrot swears like a
sailor, I mean he's a pistol. He can swear for five minutes straight
without repeating himself.
The trouble is that the guy who owns the parrot is a quiet, conservative type, and this bird's foul mouth is driving him crazy.
One day, it gets to be too much, so the guy grabs the bird by the throat, shakes him really hard, and yells, "QUIT IT!"
But this just makes the bird mad and he swears more than ever.

I believe, for every drop of rain that falls,
A flower grows.
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night,
A candle glows.
I believe for everyone who goes astray,
Someone will come, to show the way,
I believe, I believe.
I believe, above the storm the smallest prayer,
Will still be heard.
I believe, that someone in the great somewhere,
Hears every word.
Every time I hear a newborn baby cry,
Or touch a leaf, or see the sky,
Then I know why, I believe!
