“Beauty is worse than wine; it intoxicates both the holder and the beholder.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Oh, c'mon, you know how it is once Frank starts singing to me. Besides, I already had the matching graphics!
I'm giving you both of his recorded versions. Oh, sure, several other people recorded it as well, but seriously, it's all about Frank, right?
(The second one is much more beautiful than the first. How nice to improve with age!)

we owe "The Greatest Generation".
TRIBUTE TO FALLEN SOLDIERS!

Australia video--very pretty waterfall and the blip of the guy doing a happy dance on the beach is cute.
How many days old are you?
A mother, accompanied by her small daughter, was in New York City. The mother was trying to hail a cab, when her daughter noticed several wildly dressed women who were loitering on a nearby street corner.
The mother finally hailed her cab and they both climbed in, at which point the daughter asked her mother, "Mommy, what are all those ladies waiting for by that corner?", to which the mother replied, "Those ladies are waiting for their husbands to come home from work."
The cabbie, upon hearing this exchange, turned to the mother and said, "Ahhhhhhh, C'mon lady!!!! Tell your daughter the truth!!!! For crying out loud. They're hookers!"
A brief period of silence followed, and the daughter then asked, "Mommy, do the ladies have any children?"
The mother replied, "Of course, dear. Where do you think cabbies come from?"

A young woman was worried about her stress-related habit of biting her fingernails down to the quick, so her friend advised her to take up yoga. She did, and soon her fingernails were growing normally.
Her friend asked her if yoga had totally cured her nervousness. "No," she replied, "but now I can reach my toe-nails so I bite them instead."
*-- Funny Puns --*
1. Two antennas met on a roof, fell in love and got married. The ceremony wasn't much, but the reception was excellent.
2. A jumper cable walks into a bar. The bartender says, "I'll serve you, but don't start anything."
3. Two peanuts walk into a bar, and one was a salted.
4. A dyslexic man walks into a bra.
5. A man walks into a bar with a slab of asphalt under his arm, and says: "A beer please, and one for the road."
An elderly gentleman checked into a New York hotel. The clerk mentioned the phone service the establishment made available for calling guests who wished to rise at an early hour.
"No need for that, young man," snapped the old timer. "I always wake up at five A.M. sharp - without an alarm clock."
"Very good, sir," the clerk replied, then asked, "Would you mind calling me at six?"
"A bone to the dog is not charity. Charity is the bone shared with the dog, when you are just as hungry as the dog."
Al Capone's older brother Vince was a policeman in Nebraska.
Alexander Graham Bell refused to have a phone in his study - the ringing drove him nuts.
The day Judy Garland died, a tornado touched down in Kansas.
Buzz Aldrin's mother's maiden name was Moon.
Kodak founder George Eastman hated to have his picture taken.
P.J. Tierney, father of the modern diner, died of indigestion in 1917 after eating at a diner.
Did you know ?
If you live an average life span, you'll spend a total of about six months on the toilet.
There are 34 bathrooms in the White House.
The average toilet will last about 50 years before it has to be replaced.
Alaska has more outhouses than any other state.
The first American to have plumbing installed in his house was Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, in 1840.
Toilet Rock, a natural rock formation shaped like a flush toilet, is in City of Rocks, New Mexico.
In response to the MountainWings issue, "Little Red Corvette."
Have you ever really sat back and realized the things we take for granted?
The date was March 20,2002.
I was at work (I'm a supervisor) training one of my new girls on a machine. We make speaker covers.
The machine was an air press that trims the part before it is shipped to major companies.
Unfortunately for me, she wasn't paying attention.
In a split second, my life was changed forever.
I lost three fingers in that accident, on my dominant hand. The surgeon was able to replant them, but a year later, I lost my index finger once again.
As it stands now, I may lose the other two as well.
Being a single mother of two girls, it was really tough doing everyday things that I've come to realize we take for granted;
washing dishes with one hand,
sweeping the floors,
drying my hair,
...you get the picture.
I still have seven fingers.
Always remember to count your blessings and to thank GOD for all that you have, regardless of how small it may seem.
HE has certainly blessed my family and me. Without HIM, I would have never gotten through this tragedy.

You Go To My Head
Words by Haven Gillespie (06 Feb 1888 - 14 Mar 1975)
Music by J. Fred Coots (02 May 1897 - 08 Apr 1985), 1938
1946 and 1960
You go to my head and
you linger like a haunting refrain
And I find you spinning 'round in my brain
Like the bubbles in a glass of champagne
You go to my head like a sip of sparkling Burgundy brew
And I find the very mention of you
Like the kicker in a julep or two
The thrill of the thought that you might give a thought to my plea
Cast a spell over me
Still I say to myself get a hold of yourself
Can't you see that it never can be
You go to my head with a smile that makes my temperature rise
Like a summer with a thousand Julys
You intoxicate my soul with your eyes
Though I'm certain that this heart of mine
Hasn't a ghost of a chance in this crazy romance
You go to my head
You go to my head
