saturday 9


Unfamiliar with this week's song? Listen to it here.

1) Let's get the obvious out of the way: Have you ever been to Seattle? no, I never have

2) Businessweek named Seattle one of the best places to live, citing its clean air, low crime and high employment. What makes your current hometown a great place to live? clean air, low crime, and beautiful vistas

3) In this song, Bobby brags about how green Seattle is. Is it still green where you are? Or are the trees beginning to show their fall colors? the trees are *just* beginning to show their fall colors

4) This song was the theme of a 1968-1970 show called Here Come the Brides. Do you know the words to any other TV theme? Oh, I know Gilligan's Island, The Brady Bunch, Sesame Street, I know many many many

5) Bobby Sherman was once America's #1 teen idol, selling millions of records and earning 5 Gold Albums. Girls who wrote to his fan club received a postcard back signed, "Peace, Love & Bobby Sherman." Have you ever belonged to a fan club? not unless you count my undying love for George

6) Alas, the career of a teen idol can be short, and by fall 1970, Bobby was replaced on magazine covers by David Cassidy. Sherman went on to a second career with the LAPD, instructing officers in CPR and first aid. Do you know how to perform CPR? The Heimlich Maneuver? my CPR certification has lapsed, but I know the basics of both CPR and Heimlich

7) The "disc" you see shown is actually made of cardboard and was printed on the back of a Post Alpha-Bits cereal box. It was one of four that Post printed on different cereals back in 1970 so that Bobby-loving little girls would have to go through lots of different cereals to collect the whole set. What's your favorite breakfast cereal? I love Honey Nut Cheerios and bite-size Frosted Mini-Wheats

8) Crazy Sam can't decide if she wants berries or banana slices with her cereal. Which would be your choice? neither

9) Do you ever eat cereal straight out of the box? Drink milk directly from the carton? cereal from the box, yes, I don't drink milk

Have a perfectly lovely Saturday!

Since I retired my CPR and first aid certifications have expired but after 20 years of training I think that I remember them.

I bet there's some rule about teachers knowing those lifesaving measures, huh?

I love TV themes. Fraggle Rock is one of my favs. Oh, and the Golden Girls... I am with you on number 8 and 9. I prefer my cereal dry. I don't drink milk either.
