BONUS #3 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wTd8t6qug_U - You've Changed - Ligia Piro - Hmmm - she could have a bit of a problem here; she's singing, "No need to tell me that we're through, It's all over now," and she appears to be rather preggers..... It reminds me of a cartoon I saw in a magazine at least 50 years ago of an obviously pregnant Juliet standing on her balcony, and mournfully pleading, "O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou, Romeo?"

Eighty-nine years ago this week, the world's longest bridge opened on the lower James River.
Measuring nearly 5 miles in length, the first fixed link across Hampton Roads not only tied the Peninsula to the rest of the region but also connected it to an important national north-south route known as the Atlantic Coast or Ocean Highway.
Some 30,000 people turned out to witness its formal dedication on Nov. 17, which included a 2-mile-long "monster parade," a pyrotechnic recreation of the Civil War battle between the Monitor and the Merrimac and an electrical connection with the White House office of President Calvin Coolidge, who pressed the button that activated the bridge's gigantic lift span and lowered it into position over the 2-lane highway.
"The entire project, including the bridges over the Nansemond River and Chuckatuck Creek, cost about 7 millions," wrote the editorial page of the Daily Press, describing a project that was genuinely regional in character.
"And in our opinion (it) will do more to unite the people of the various Tidewater communities than any other undertaking of the past decade."
Much of the credit for the privately funded bridge went to prominent Newport News businessman and city mayor Philip W. Hiden, whose daughter -- taking a role as the state of Virginia --cut the ribbon opening the span with an immense pair of scissors.
Standing by her side in blue frocks and golden
hats was an escort of 23 "fair maidens," each one representing a Hampton
Roads city, town or county.
The historic waters of the James River in
Virginia have been conquered by the hands of modern constructive genius
inspired by the necessities of 20th-century automobile transportation,"
wrote Daily Press reporter Heywood Bell in a front-page story emblazoned
with numerous deck headlines, including "New Epoch in the History of

From www.ajokeaday.com - 11/20/17:
|Because I had forgotten the dates
for a number of my friends and relatives' birthdays and anniversaries, I
decided to compile a list on the computer and have the dates highlighted
on screen when the machine was turned on.
I went to a number of computer stores to find a software program that would do the job, but had no luck at the first few. I finally found one where the clerk seemed experienced.
"Can you recommend something that will remind me of birthdays and anniversaries?" I asked.
"Have you tried a wife?" he replied.
