“Love one another and you will be happy.
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Mmmm... Today's Golden Oldie always makes me want to dance.
BONUS - You Send Me - Sam Cooke
"You Send Me" is a 1957 single by R&B singer-songwriter Sam Cooke. The song was his first secular single released through Keen Records, an imprint of RCA Victor Records. (His first non-gospel single, "Lovable," was released earlier that year under a pseudonym.) Released in September 1957, the record became an instant hit, topping the charts on both the Billboard Pop and R&B singles charts. The record established Cooke as a mainstream R&B singer, apart from his gospel roots.
At the same time a rendition was also released by Teresa Brewer, which reached #8 on the pop charts.
Since its release, the song has become a landmark record of the soul genre, which Cooke helped create. It was named as one of the 500 most important rock and roll recordings by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. In 2005, the song was voted #115 by representatives of the music industry and press in Rolling Stone magazine's The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 07/12/17 - "FIRST AIR CONDITIONING IN A CAR":
|The Goldberg Brothers - The Inventors of the
Automobile Air Conditioner
Here's a little fact for automotive buffs, or just to dazzle your friends.
The four Goldberg brothers, Lowell, Norman, Hiram, and Maxwell, invented and developed the first automobile air-conditioner. On July 17, 1946, the temperature in Detroit was 97 F degrees.
The four brothers walked into old man Henry Ford's office and sweet-talked his secretary into telling him that four gentlemen were there with the most exciting innovation in the auto industry since the electric starter.
Henry was curious and invited them into his office.
They refused and instead asked that he come out to the parking lot to their car.
They persuaded him to get into the car, which was about 130 F degrees inside, turned on the air conditioner, and cooled the car off almost immediately.
The old man got very excited and invited them back to the office, where he offered them $3 million for the patent.
The brothers refused, saying they would settle for $2 million, but they wanted the recognition by having a label, 'The Goldberg Air-Conditioner,' on the dashboard of each car in which it was installed.
There was no way that Old man Ford was going to put the Goldberg's name on two million Fords.
They haggled back and forth for about two hours and finally agreed on $4 million and that just their first names would be shown.
And so to this day, all Ford air conditioners show --
Lo, Norm, Hi, and Max -- on the controls.
Just forward it on!!
This is what happens when you are retired and have too much time on your hands!
|GIGGLES! Thank you, Wayne!|
