URGENT PLEA: Following Paul's latest
health scare, my two youngest children in California are desperately trying
to find a way to get home to see their father one last time before it grows too late.
They have raised over half the cost, but are falling short and time is of the essence.
If you are able to contribute any amount, no matter how great or small, our family would be eternally grateful. Thank you so much.

|"I Believe" is the name of a

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".

Thank you, Jean! That's certainly understandable, given what your family has endured recently!
I wish I knew the answer to your question, Lady. Paul's decidedly better in some ways, and decidedly worse in others, so I suppose it will be yet a few more days before we have any clear cut answers.

DATES TO REMEMBER:
Y'all take good care of each other! TYPHOONS FOREVER! We'll Always Have Buckroe!
Love to all, Carol
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!
