“What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are
- Joseph Addison
(01 May 1672 - 17 June 1719)
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,Every day's a good day to smile - especially if we don't particularly feel like smiling.
BONUS #1 - The Shadow of Your Smile - Peggy Lee
BONUS #2 - The Shadow of Your Smile - Johnny Mathis
BONUS #3 - The Shadow of Your Smile - Barbra Streisand
"The Shadow of Your Smile", also known as "Love Theme from The Sandpiper," is a popular song. The music was written by Johnny Mandel, the lyrics by Paul Francis Webster. The song was introduced in the 1965 movie The Sandpiper with a trumpet solo by Jack Sheldon and later became a minor hit for Tony Bennett (Johnny Mandel arranged and conducted his version as well). It won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year and the Academy Award for Best Original Song.

“If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of car
(08 Dec 1933 - 25 Nov 1998)
|BONUS RECIPES (Sorry,
not theme related):
|Mama Bear, Papa Bear, and
Baby Bear were having a great time chasing vacationers in a car
as they were visiting Yellowstone National Park.
"Yes, Baby Bear?"
"I think we could be doing a better job of scaring these vacationers."
"But, Baby Bear," Mama Bear injected. "What more can we do?"
"Maybe we'd have more of an effect on them if we got out of this car and started chasing them on all fours!"
