BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSsiS-v6_6M - Theme From A Summer Place - Percy Faith
BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SeDGvfR0HU&NR=1 - Theme From A Summer Place - Andy Williams, 1962
"Theme from A Summer Place" is a song with lyrics by Mack Discant and music by Max Steiner, written for the 1959 film A Summer Place, which starred Sandra Dee and Troy Donahue. It was recorded for the film by Hugo Winterhalter. Originally known as the "Molly and Johnny Theme", the piece is not the main title theme of the film, but a love theme for the characters played by Dee and Donahue.
Percy Faith recorded the most popular version of the tune in the Columbia 30th Street Studio in New York City, which spent an at-the-time record of nine consecutive weeks at number one on the still-young Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in early 1960. It remains the longest-running number-one instrumental in the history of the chart. It reached number two in the UK. It hit number one in Italy under the title "Scandalo Al Sole".
Faith won a Grammy Award for Record of the Year in 1961 for his recording. This was the first movie theme and the first instrumental to win a Record of the Year Grammy.
Faith re-recorded the song twice – first, in 1969, as a female choral version, then, in 1976, as a disco version titled "Summer Place '76".
In 2008, Faith's original version was ranked at number eighteen on Billboard's top 100 songs during the first fifty years of the Hot 100 chart...

From Jimmy Smith ('62 / '63) of VA - 08/01/13 - "The Five Riddles":
|The Five Riddles...
THE ANSWERS ARE AT THE BOTTOM.
RIDDLE FIVE IS AMAZING.
IT SHARPENS THOSE GENES IN YOUR BRAIN AND STALLS ALZHEIMER'S FOR YEARS ….
1. A murderer is condemned to death. He has to choose between three rooms. The first is full of raging fires, the second is full of assassins with loaded guns, and the third is full of lions that haven't eaten in 3 years. Which room is safest for him?
2. A woman shoots her husband. Then she holds him under water for five minute Finally, she hangs him. But five minutes later they both go out together and enjoy a wonderful dinner together. How can this be?
3. What is black when you buy it, red when you use it, and gray when you throw it away ?
4. Can you name three consecutive days without using the words Wednesday, Friday, or Sunday?
5. This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious as to just how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it. It looks so ordinary and plain that you would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact, nothing is wrong with it! It is highly unusual though. Study it and think about it, but you still may not find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you might find out. Try to do so without any coaching!
THE ANSWERS TO ALL FIVE THE RIDDLES ARE BELOW:
1. The third room. Lions that haven't eaten in three years are dead. That one was easy, right?
2. The woman was a photographer. She shot a picture of her husband, developed it, and hung it up to dry (shot; held under water; and hung).
3. Charcoal, as it is used in barbecuing.
4. Sure you can name three consecutive days, yesterday, today, and tomorrow!
5. The letter "e" which is the most common letter used in the English language, does not appear even once in the paragraph.

2. Meanwhile, prepare gravy according to package directions in a medium saucepan. Stir sausage crumbles into thickened gravy; set aside.

1 can of sweetened condensed milk
Mix these two ingredients together. Poke holes in the hot cake and slowly pour this mixture over the cake. Let cake cool and then frost with the following:

and Zucchini Bars with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting
•2 eggs, slightly beaten

•1/2 cup butter
•1/4 cup honey
•1 tsp. vanilla
•1 1/2 cups shredded carrot
•1 cup shredded zucchini
•1/2 cup chopped walnuts
•1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting
•1 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese
•1 cup powdered sugar
•1 1/2 tsp. lemon zest
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, brown sugar, oil, honey, and vanilla. Don’t worry about clumps of the brown sugar; those will dissolve as it sits while you prepare the remaining ingredients. Then fold in the carrot, zucchini, and walnuts.
2. In another bowl combine add the flour, baking powder, ginger, and baking soda. Whisk to blend together.
3. Add to flour mixture to the wet mixture. Stir just until combined. Spread batter into an ungreased 13x9x2-inch baking pan.
4. Bake about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
5. Once the cake is cooled prepare the frosting. In a medium mixing bowl, beat the frosting ingredients with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Spread or pipe the frosting over the cooled bars. Makes 36 bars.
|AHH! This looks like my kind of cake! Thank you, Roshana!|
From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 08/01/13 - "CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER NO BAKE COOKIES":
CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER NO BAKE COOKIES
2 cups sugar
4 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
1 cup peanut butter (I like the chunky kind)
1 Tablespoon vanilla
3 cups oatmeal
In a heavy saucepan bring to a boil, the sugar, cocoa, butter and milk.
Let boil for 1 minute then add peanut butter, vanilla and oatmeal.
On a sheet of waxed paper, drop mixture by the teaspoonfuls,
until cooled and hardened.
GIGGLES! Thanks, Susan!
recipe always takes me back to the summer of 1984. We only had six boys
then, ranging from thirteen years to six months. The older boys thought
it would be ideal - in fact, the only way to live - if we made a triple
batch of this each day. And instead of spreading them out to make
individual cookies, we could just split the entire huge batch into
bowls, one for each family member, with which to indulge (gorge)
themselves throughout the day.
This ridiculous plan worked quite well until we began to run out of ingredients...
First to run out was the oatmeal. They found they could substitute granola, but soon learned it was sweeter than the plain oatmeal, so they could either reduce the amount of oatmeal or sugar with basically the same results.
But then the sugar ran out (not surprisingly). I tried warning them that you could not feasibly make more than one substitution per recipe, but they were optimistic and confident, so they substituted brown sugar for the white. It was a little strange, but still tolerable.
But then the cocoa ran out as well. Hmm, what to do, what to do?? They found some dry chocolate pudding mix. Are you following? This would make the third substitution at the same time. My warnings fell on deaf but exuberant ears, and they continued with their cooking de jour.
Can you guess? The result was something, shall we say, less than delicious.
When it cooled sufficiently to taste, our #1 son, Lewis (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL - '89 - of IL) took a large spoonful, made a grimace, and proclaimed, "This isn't candy, this is just chocolate... SLOP!"
Chocolate Slop it has remained in our family (in its pure, unsubstituted form, of course) for the past 29 years, a family favorite with this long time honored tradition.
When our #4 son, Joshua (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL - '95 - of IL) was in junior high, he even wrote a song about it, which he sang and played on the piano to me whenever he began to crave a bowl. In time he began to play it on his guitar and follow me all around the house, grinning all the while, until I laughed so hard I relented I made the treat.
Ah, good times!
