“There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love.”
Bryant H. McGill
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Mmmmmm. Can you really ever listen to this wonderful golden oldie from 1965 without wanting to dance?!?
BONUS - Ooh Baby Baby - Smokey Robinson and The Miracles
|"Ooo Baby Baby" is a song written by
Smokey Robinson and
Pete Moore. It is a classic 1965 hit single by
The Miracles for the Tamla (Motown)
label. It achieved its greatest commercial success when
Linda Ronstadt covered it in 1978 where she reached number 7 on the
Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song has inspired numerous other
cover versions by other artists over the years, including covers by
Todd Rundgren, the
Five Stairsteps, and many others.
A slow, remorseful number, "Ooo Baby Baby" features Miracles lead singer Smokey Robinson lamenting the fact that he cheated on his woman, and begging for her to overlook his mistakes and please forgive him. The song's highly emotional feel is supported by the Miracles' tight background vocal harmonies, arranged by Miracles member and song co-author Pete Moore, and a lush orchestral string arrangement that accents The Funk Brothers band's instrumental track.

inherently evil, but if they absorb all of our time and keep us from the
best choices, then they become insidious.”

From My Niece, Shari, of VA -10/31/18 - "Statistics (#5 in a series of 18)":
numbers are based on a single day. The one that may not be clear is the 5000 -
an estimate of how many steps the average person takes in a day. I don't know if
anyone else will find these of interest, or as much as I do, but one thing that
stood out to me is the imbalance in the numbers. Our dependence on technology is
clear. It is certainly a blessing in many ways; just hope it does not make life
WOW! Thank you, Shari!
BONUS NOVEMBER DECORATING IDEA:
From www.ajokeaday.com - 11/04/18:
|A man took his place in the theater, but his
seat was too far from the stage. He whispered to the usher, "This is a
mystery, and I have to watch a mystery close up. Get me a better seat,
and I'll give you a handsome tip."
The usher moved him into the second row, and the man handed the usher a quarter. The usher looked at the quarter, leaned over and whispered, "The wife did it."
