“If you are ever in doubt as to whether to kiss a pretty girl, always give her the benefit of the doubt.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Ah, Gwen Stefani - one of my favorites!
BONUS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHzOOQfhPFg - Just a Girl - No Doubt
|"Just a Girl" is a song written by
Gwen Stefani and
Doubt's third album
Tragic Kingdom. The song was
released in 1995 as the album's
lead single and helped the band break into mainstream music, peaking
at number 23 on the
Billboard Hot 100.
The song itself is written about Gwen Stefani's exasperation over female stereotypes, portraying women as weak and in need of a man to look after them. This is evident from lyrics such as "Don't you think I know / Exactly where I stand? / This world is forcing me / To hold your hand." She explained her inspiration in an interview for BAM Magazine:"I wrote that because my dad got mad at me for going to Tony [Kanal, No Doubt bassist]'s house and driving home late at night. I mean, c'mon, I'm, like, going on 30 here! I wouldn't trade [being female], but I really don't think guys understand what a burden it can be sometimes..."

From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 09/15/14 - "Kamikaze Attack":
|Kamikaze Attack in 1945
(awesome video footage)
Many Americans who fought in WWII were 'kids," just out of High School and college !!
Use of the kamikaze attack, in the air or on the ground; was one of the threats impacting the decision to use the “A” bomb.
A kamikaze attack in 1945 … this clip gives you a feel for what it was like in the gun turret.
About the best naval footage ever. You are right in the gun turret under attack.
YOWZERONI! Thank you, Dearest Judy!
|West Point Glee Club Veterans Memorial BE SURE TO
Friends, this is a very touching video. It brought tears to my eyes, be prepared. Beautifully done hymn by West Point Glee Club. Toward the end...pic's of U.S. war memorials "everywhere".
Mansions (Veterans Memorial)
This is a very beautiful tribute to our military men and women. A must see!!!
This is simply awesome. However, after you click on Mansions; do not click on anything else. It will start playing by itself.
One of the best tributes to America 's veterans and families...
Turn up your sound.
Thank you so very much, Buster - and all of you other veterans in our midst as well!
From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 09/15/14 - "Donkey in the well... be sure to read to the end.":
There are two lessons here.
Very SMART ASS!
At first, the donkey realized what was
happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted
Thanks again, Dearest Judy!

Just a Girl
Written by Gwen Stefani (b. 03 Oct 1969) and Tom Dumont (b. 11 Jan 1968)
Recorded by No Doubt, 1995
Take this pink ribbon off my eyes
And it's no big surprise
Don't you think I know
Exactly where I stand
This world is forcing me
To hold your hand
'Cause I'm just a girl, little ol' me
Don't let me out of your sight
I'm just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don't let me have any rights
Oh... I've had it up to here!
The moment that I step outside
So many reasons
For me to run and hide
I can't do the little things
I hold so dear
'Cause it's all those little things
That I fear
'Cause I'm just a girl,
I'd rather not be
'Cause they won't let me drive
Late at night
I'm just a girl,
Guess I'm some kind of freak
'Cause they all sit and stare
With their eyes
I'm just a girl,
Take a good look at me
Just your typical prototype
Oh... I've had it up to here!
Oh... am I making myself clear?
I'm just a girl
I'm just a girl in the world...
That's all that you'll let me be!
I'm just a girl, living in captivity
Your rule of thumb
Makes me worry some
I'm just a girl, what's my destiny?
What I've succumbed to
Is making me numb
I'm just a girl, my apologies
What I've become is so burdensome
I'm just a girl, lucky me
Twiddle-dum there's no comparison
Oh... I've had it up to!
Oh... I've had it up to!
Oh... I've had it up to here.
