BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrjbwVhQOAw - Blue Suede Shoes - Elvis Presley


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

"Blue Suede Shoes" is a rock and roll standard written and first recorded by Carl Perkins in 1955. The 12-bar blues is considered one of the first rockabilly (rock and roll) records and incorporated elements of blues, country and pop music of the time.

Johnny Cash planted the seed for the song in the fall of 1955, while Perkins, Cash, Elvis Presley, and other Louisiana Hayride acts toured throughout the South. Cash told Perkins of a black airman whom he had met when serving in the military in Germany. He had referred to his military regulation air shoes as "blue suede shoes." Cash suggested that Carl write a song about the shoes. Carl replied, "I don't know anything about shoes. How can I write a song about shoes?"[1]

When Perkins played a dance on December 4, 1955, he noticed a couple dancing near the stage. The girl was gorgeous, he thought, and the boy wore blue suede shoes. As they danced the boy cautioned his date "don't step on my suedes." Perkins was bewildered that a guy would value shoes over a beautiful girl.[2]

Perkins began working on a song based on that incident. His first thought was to frame it with a nursery rhyme. He considered, and quickly discarded "Little Jack Horner..." and "See a spider going up the wall...". Then settled on "One for the money..." Leaving his bed and working with his Les Paul guitar, he started with an A chord. After playing five chords while singing "Well, it's one for the money... Two for the show... Three to get ready... Now go, man, go!" and broke into a boogie rhythm.[3] He quickly grabbed a brown paper potato sack and wrote the song down, writing the title out as "Blue Swade, S-W-A-D-E". "I couldn't even spell it right," he later said.[4] According to Perkins, "On December 17, 1955, I wrote "Blue Suede Shoes"." I recorded it on December 19."[5] Producer Sam Phillips suggested that Perkins's line "go boy go" be changed to "go cat go".


EARTHQUAKE ALERT:

From http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/earthquake-measured-59-magnitude-rattles-washington-york/story?id=14364643 - 08/23/11:

Earthquake Listed at 5.9 Rattles East Coast From Virginia to New Hampshire

 

A 5.9 magnitude earthquake jolted the East Coast, rattling people from Martha's Vineyard to Washington, D.C. to North Carolina, prompting the evacuation of Congressional buildings, slowing rail and air traffic, and taking two nuclear reactors offline.

The earthquake sent people pouring out of office buildings, hospitals, the Pentagon and the State Department. The pillars of the capitol in Washington, D.C. shook. Alarms sounded in the FBI and Department of Justice buildings, and some flooding was reported on an upper floor of the Pentagon as a result of the quake.

Parks and sidewalks in Washington were packed with people who fled their buildings. Police on horseback are keeping people a safe distance from getting too close to the Washington Monument and Jefferson Memorial.

Officials are inspecting Congressional buildings before members of Congress and their staff can return to their offices.

The quake was felt as far north as New Hampshire and in Martha's Vineyard where President Obama and his family are vacationing. It was felt as far south as South Carolina.

No significant damage or fatalities have been reported. Some injuries have been reported in Washington D.C., the fire department spokesman told the Associated Press. In New York City, the fire department said that they are receiving a surge in calls but have had no serious building damage reported.

Authorities in New York and Washington said cell phone traffic was so heavy that it hampered their ability to respond to emergencies.

The epicenter of the quake was near Mineral, Va., 39 miles from Richmond, Va., and 85 miles from the nation's capital. The quake was .6 miles deep.

According to convertalot.com, a web site which compiles measurements and calculators for a variety of statistics, the magnitude 5.9 earthquake released energy equivalent to the explosion of 10,676 tons of TNT.

The epicenter of the quake is very close to two Dominion Power nuclear power plants, North Anna 1 and 2.

Rare 5.9 East Coast Earthquake

Elizabeth Stuckle, spokesperson for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, said that the reactors were "automatically and safely shut down." The plant declared an "unusual event" which is the lowest category of four emergency classifications. Back-up generators automatically kicked in to keep the reactors cool, the NRC said.

Nine other nuclear plants on the East coast declared an "unusual event," but were none shut down.

The East Coast gets earthquakes from time to time, but rarely of a magnitude to make skyscrapers sway.

Paul Segall, a Stanford geophysicist who studies the structure and development of earthquake faults, called today's shaker "a significant earthquake for that part of the world. It could do significant damage."

"I can't remember an event that large on the East Coast," he said.

The tremblor affected travel in the region.

Amtrak said it was running at reduced speed and was checking tracks and terminals for damage. The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority said the Metro is moving at 15 miles per hour as inspectors check all tracks.

There have been reports of structural damage to some residences in town, Reidelbach says, but no reports of significant injuries. Mandatory evacuations were put in place shortly after the quake with all non-essential government and county personnel were sent home for the day. Schools were also closed.

Amtrak said it was running at reduced speed and was checking tracks and terminals for damage. The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority said the Metro is moving at 15 mph as inspectors check all tracks.

Flights at Dulles International Airport in Virginia, JFK International in New York and in Philadelphia were temporarily halted. Control towers at JFK and Newark International airports were temporarily evacuated. The delay will cause slow air traffic throughout the region, the Federal Aviation Administration warned. In addition, about a dozen flights were diverted from JFK to Boston.

A woman who works at Mineral Barber Shop in Mineral, Va. said that the inside of her shop is a mess but there doesn't appear to be any major damage outside the town square.

In Richmond, Va., a woman who works on the 18th floor of a 20 story building said she and her co-workers left the building when the shaking first began.

"At first I thought it was someone jumping on floor above me, but then it was really loud and shaky," she said.

People in the New York Times building on 42nd street in Manhattan said they felt the entire building shift, and watched office furniture move. As the tall buildings in New York swayed, people ran out into the street.

The New York City Criminal Court in lower Manhattan was also evacuated.

In Baltimore, Maryland, artist Lisa Lewenz was working in her basement studio when she began to feel movement under her feet.

"Everything started trembling, with a big boom sound coming up from the ground. I've lived in LA long enough to know this drill, so rushed upstairs, and found the glassware still shuttering for about a minute. Couldn't get through by the phone to friends, and there was no news online, so I started worrying my house was collapsing," Lewenz said.

Rare East Coast Earthquake Reaches 5.9 Magnitude

Since there were no serious injuries, some saw the lighter side in the unexpected quake.

Michelle Mittelstadt said, "My first earthquake! What's next: Plague of locusts?"

Another woman who works with the Federal Aviation Administration said that the, "If you have to be evacuated for an earthquake, the National Mall is a nice spilling out point!"

The earthquake felt along the eastern corridor follows an earthquake felt Monday in Colorado. That 5.3 magnitude earthquake struck near Trinidad, Colorado.

The United States' Geological Survey said that earthquakes have been felt in the central Virginia area since 1774.

ABC News' Jane E. Allen, Christina Caron, Troy McMullen, Jack Cloherty, Jim Sciutto, Aaron Katersky and Dennis Powell contributed to this report.

TODAY IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES:

From http://www.civilwarinteractive.com/This%20Day/thisday0823.htm - INCLUDING:

Friday, Aug. 23, 1861
TENNESSEE TENDS TO TIME OF TROUBLES

Tennessee was a vastly divided state at this stage of the War. A vote held on the question of secession had come down to an almost even divide, but secession was voted down. Governor Isham Harris, however, was the foremost supporter of the notion of joining the Confederacy, possibly due to the greater powers afforded states under that system of government. And therefore into the Confederacy Tennessee was taken. Today Harris issued a call to the mothers, wives and daughters of his state, that they should make and send clothing and blankets to soldiers in the field.

Saturday, Aug. 23, 1862
MULTIPLE MINOR MILITARY MOVEMENTS MADE


It is not always the big battles that effect the actions of war. If all the fighting that took place today had occurred in the same place it would have rivaled Manassas or Antietam....well, okay, maybe not Antietam, but at least Balls’ Bluff or Wilson’s Creek. Combat occurred in or near Four Mile, Hickory Grove and Wayman’s Milll, Missouri; Bayou Sara, Louisiana; Big Hill, Kentucky; Greenville, Mississippi; Trinity, Alabama, and Fort Donelson, Tennessee; Moorefield in western Virginia. In Virginia proper things were hottest, with fighting at Rappahannock Station, Beverly Ford, Fant’s Ford, Smithfield, Sulphur Springs, and on the railroad between Harper’s Ferry and Winchester. A train was captured by Confederate forces.

Sunday, Aug. 23, 1863
RAPPAHANNOCK RAID RESULTS IN REGRET

The area of the mouth of the Rappahannock River in Virginia had been assumed to be firmly held Union territory for quite some time. This may have resulted in a slackening of vigilance today, which turned out not to be the time for slackness. A group of sixty Confederates, accompanied by 30 sharpshooters, set out on the river in four small boats. Led by Lt. L. Taylor Woods, they simply took advantage of the calm to capture two Union gunboats, the USS Satellite and USS Reliance. The action was of minimal military significance, but resulted in massive embarrassment for Union naval commanders in the region.

Tuesday, Aug. 23, 1864
MASSIVE MOBILE MILITARISM MAKES MORGAN MOOT


Fort Morgan was the last outpost guarding the inlets to Mobile Bay, which was the last Confederate port of any size on the Gulf of Mexico not in Federal hands. Since yesterday the fort had been pounded by land batteries, gunboats, and three monitors. Although the damage inflicted was not massive it was relentless, and the fort was unable to respond as it was cut off from supplies. Today the installation was surrendered, and the road to Mobile lay open. After this, only Wilmington, N.C., would be accessible to that Confederate shipping that could slip past the blockade.


      From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 08/21/11 - "LAUS DEO, What does this mean?":

LAUS DEO,
Do you know what it means? 


LAUS DEO

One detail that is rarely mentioned is that in Washington, D.C., there can never be a building of greater height than the Washington Monument.

With all the uproar about removing the ten commandments, etc., this is worth a moment or two of your time. I was not aware of this amazing historical information.

On the aluminum cap, atop the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C., are displayed two words:

Laus Deo.

No one can see these words. In fact, most visitors to the monument are totally unaware they are even there and for that matter, probably couldn't care less.

Once you know Laus Deo's history , you will want to share this with everyone you know. These words have been there for many years; they are 555 feet, 5.125 inches high, perched atop the monument, facing skyward to the Father of our nation, overlooking the 69 square miles which comprise the District of Columbia, capital of the United States of America.

Laus Deo! Two seemingly insignificant, unnoticed words. Out of sight and, one might think, out of mind, but very meaningfully placed at the highest point over what is the most powerful city in the most successful nation in the world.

So, what do those two words, in Latin, composed of just four syllables and only seven letters, possibly mean? Very simply, they say,
'Praise be to God!'

Though construction of this giant obelisk began in
1848, when James Polk was President of the United States , it was not until 1888 that the monument was inaugurated and opened to the public. It took twenty-five years to finally cap the memorial with a tribute to the Father of our nation,
Laus Deo
'Praise be to God!'


From atop this magnificent granite and marble structure, visitors may take in the beautiful panoramic view of the city with its division into four major segments. From that vantage point, one can also easily see the original plan of the designer, Pierre Charles l'Enfant ..... a perfect cross imposed upon the landscape, with the White House to the north. The Jefferson Memorial is to the south, the Capitol to the east and the Lincoln Memorial to the west.

A cross, you ask?  Why a cross?  What about separation of church and state? Yes, a cross; separation of church and state was not, and is not, in the Constitution.  So, read on. How interesting and, no doubt, intended to carry a profound meaning for those who bother to notice.
 

When the cornerstone of the Washington Monument was laid on July 4th, 1848 deposited within it were many items including the Holy Bible presented by the Bible Society. Praise be to God!  Such was the discipline, the moral direction, and the spiritual mood given by the founder and first President of our unique democracy, 'One Nation, Under God.'

I am awed by George Washington's prayer for America ....
Have you ever read it? Well, now is your unique opportunity, so read on!

' Almighty God; We make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection; that Thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States at large. And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation.  Grant our supplication, we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.'  
 

Laus Deo!
 

It is hoped you will send this to every child you know; to every sister, brother, father, mother or friend.  They will not find offense, because you have given them a lesson in history that they probably never learned in school.  With that, be not ashamed or afraid, but have pity on those who will never see this because someone failed to send it on.

   Thanks for the history lesson, Dools!


    From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 08/22/11 - "Hymn #365":

HYMN # 365

This is too funny - but I suspect the minister didn't appreciate it.

A minister was completing a temperance sermon. With great emphasis he said, 'If I had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river.'

With even greater emphasis he said, 'And if I had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river.'

And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he said, 'And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river.'

Sermon complete, he sat down...

The song leader stood very cautiously and announced with a smile, nearly laughing, 'For our closing song, let us sing Hymn #365, 'Shall We Gather at the River.'

Smile - life is too short not to!!

If this brightened your day
Don't let it stop here
Pass it on with a smile
Keep spreading the Cheer.

See you at the river !!

     Thanks, Joan!


From http://www.SelfGrowth.com - 08/22/11 - "Affirmation Starters":

5 Affirmation Starters You Need To Know To Make Them Work!

By Claire McGee


"I think I can. I think I can." Those are the immortal words of the Little Engine That Could, the train locomotive from the children's story who against all odds pulled his heavy load over the mountain. Those words were his affirmation to himself that pushed him to keep trying until he finally succeeded.

That's all fine and dandy for a children's story. The real question we must ask now is, Do affirmations always work?

The answer is yes, so long as certain "criteria" have been met.

First off, what is an affirmation?

An affirmation is a carefully worded statement that aids in our ability to solidify a belief. There are hundreds -- if not thousands -- of resources available as it relates to affirmations, yet many people struggle with making them work. Thankfully, there is a reason and a solution!

An affirmation is said to be most effective when worded in the present tense. Meaning, what we say or think must reflect what is happening now rather than in the future. The reason is if we were to word an affirmation using future tense, we would continually reach for our desire rather than attaining it. This makes sense because our mind takes what we say to it quite literally and when said often enough, produces the exact results we are implying.

With that said, this poses an interesting dilemma. One's mind is extremely intelligent. You have been living for a very long time, a lifetime so far, in fact. Therefore your mind knows when you are attempting to trick it. When this happens, it can -- and often does -- retaliate.

For example, if a person's desire is to be rich, they may use an affirmation similar to this: "I am wealthy beyond my wildest dreams." This affirmation is worded in the now and sounds very motivating. What this affirmation can also produce is an internal battle between what one consciously desires versus what one truly believes one can have. Without being aware of it, the person who uses this affirmation is taking a risk of producing an increase in doubt, anxiety, frustration, and struggle.

Your mind plays the association game. It works with patterns and stores data on a continual basis. It assesses all stimuli, determines the pattern from previous information, then produces natural reactions internally. Therefore, when your conscious reality is contradictory to what you are affirming, your mind disagrees because it is associating with lack of money rather than an abundance of it.

In other words, if you were to say "I am wealthy beyond my wildest dreams" and you look in your wallet and see five dollars, your mind would think "You're full of poop!" An instant reaction of disagreement occurs. From there you have to "remind" yourself that "It is coming," which then causes you to affirm future events. That, of course, is counter-productive, since you are making your "affirmation" in the future tense.

So what can you do? You do in fact word affirmations in the present tense. You also word your affirmations in such a way that it is accepting in the mind. Using words that embrace the journey of acquiring the amazing things you desire makes it much more believable and therefore causes the mind to accept and work cooperatively with your conscious efforts.

From now on, here are the five Affirmation Starters you can use to make your affirmations work for you:

"I Am" -- Use this starter when affirming an action you are taking each day toward your goal.

"I Have" -- Use this starter when you know you have it now and wish to maintain it or expand on it.

"I Do" -- Use this starter when affirming your ability, through the actions you are taking, to create amazing results.

"I Attract" -- Use this starter when you are affirming your faith in your ability to attract great things.

"I Achieve" -- Use this starter when you are affirming the journey and the end result of a goal/desire.


Remember, if at any time you are using an affirmation and you are feeling emotions less than enthusiasm, confidence, motivation, and undeniable faith, they may be counter-productive. Assess your affirmations and make certain they work for you!

Have a fabulous day and keep smiling that gorgeous smile of yours. After all, it's contagious!

FINALLY:

From LadyHawke's Weekly Jokes - 08/21/11:

"Mail Order Groom" 
            

Two women in the one horse town of Parched Gulch had daughters, each of marriageable age.  But there were no prospective husbands in town due to shootings, running off with outlaws and drunk riding.  And there was no chance at all of any bridegrooms turning up.

The two mothers pooled their meager resources, advertised, and sure enough, they got results: twin brothers in Cactus Corners looking for wives.  The twin bridegrooms were sent for.

Along the way the twins met up with outlaws.  One was killed, the other escaped.  Upon his arrival, the mothers were in immediate conflict as to whom the surviving twin belonged. They were going to kill each other over it.  After all, each had a daughter's future at stake.

They took the case to Judge A.K. Hornswoggle, alcoholic, disbarred, but with Solomonic frontier wisdom.  After due deliberation, Hornswoggle ruled that the young man be chopped in half and one half awarded to each daughter.

The first mother was outraged.  If Hornswoggle wasn't drunk or stupid, he was a monster for suggesting such a thing.

The second mother thought it would not be a bad solution.

And pointing to the second mother, Hornswoggle said, "Your daughter gets him.  You are the real mother-in-law."

Blue Suede Shoes

Written and recorded by Carl Perkins, 1955
(09 Apr 1932 – 19 Jan 1998)


Well it's one for the money, two for the show,
Three to get ready, now go, cat, go.
But don't you, step on my blue suede shoes.
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes

You can knock me down, step on my face
Slander my name all over the place.
Do anything that you wanna do
But uh uh, honey, lay off of my shoes.
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.

You can burn my house, you can steal my car
Drink my liquor from an old fruit jar
Do anything that you wanna do
But uh uh, honey, lay off of my shoes
But don't you, step on my blue suede shoes.
Well, you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.

Well it's one for the money, two for the show,
Three to get ready, now go, cat, go
But don't you, step on my blue suede shoes.
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.

Well it's blue, blue, blue suede shoes
Blue, blue, blue suede shoes yeh!
Well blue, blue, blue suede shoes
Blue, blue, blue suede shoes
Well, you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.
