“When I'm dead twenty-five years, people
are going to begin to recognize me.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Ahhh - another celebrity birthday - or is it?!? Oh, well, we need to observe it SOME time, n'est pas??
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cFkae0j_Ns - Scott Joplin's The Entertainer - chocotiger
"Scott Joplin, the second of six children, was born in eastern Texas, near Linden, to Florence Givins and Giles or Jiles Joplin. November 24, 1868 has been assumed as the correct birth date of Scott Joplin, but modern research by ragtime historian Ed Berlin has revealed this is almost certainly inaccurate. The 1870 census lists Scott, age 2, as the son of Jiles and Florence Joplin. The exact location of his birth is uncertain.":

From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 11/23/08 - "Il Divo cantando - Amazing Grace...":
YOU HAVE GOT TO HEAR THIS. IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL, AND SO POWERFUL, I CAN ONLY HOPE THESE GUYS KNOW OF THIS AMAZING GRACE THAT THEY SING ABOUT. IT TOOK A WHILE TO LOAD FOR ME, BUT IT MAY NOT FOR YOU. TURN THE VOLUME UP AND ENJOY.
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast."

Il Divo cantando - "Amazing Grace"
Click on link below:
Il Divo put a fresh face on popular songs,
utilizing their exceptional voices, good looks, and cultural diversity to
bring their romantic blend of classical and pop music to audiences around the
world. Formed after a two-year search, the quartet is comprised of American
tenor David Miller, popular French singer Sébastien Izambard, Swiss tenor Urs
Buhler, and Spanish baritone Carlos Marin. Their eponymous debut album was
released in April of 2005 and featured a diverse play list that included a
cover of the Toni Braxton hit "Unbreak My Heart" and the Frank Sinatra
standard "My Way," as well as "Nella Fantasia," a newly arranged -- with
vocals -- version of "Gabriel's Oboe" from Ennio Morricone's score for The
Mission. It became a massive worldwide hit, and the quartet returned in 2005

Thank you very much, Joey! I'm not quite well, but I am feeling much better now!
I'm so glad you're enjoying the varied content. I try to celebrate everything here for two reasons - to rejoice with those who are observing, and to educate those who are not. That way we all grow closer together! I'm always a bit fearful that I'll miss something or forget it altogether, but I do give it my best shot!
