I Don't Know How to Love Him

1) This song is from Jesus Christ, Superstar. Though now a beloved classic, the play was controversial when it first premiered. Can you think of something else that originally made people uncomfortable, but went on to be accepted? recycling (it's an issue in my hometown)

2) Jesus Christ, Superstar was originally developed as a "concept album," a collection of songs written to sequentially tell the story of The Crucifixion and Resurrection. Do you remember the first album you bought? Did you download it, listen to it on a CD player, your cassette deck, or record player? I bought the DeFranco Family's Heartbeat as a 45

3) When the album's songs were performed live in concert at the Pennsylvania Civic Arena, producers decided to stage it as a play and the rest, as they say, is history. Tell us about a really good idea you've had recently. I tried an editing technique with my classes that was a great success!

4) Jesus Christ, Superstar is a truly international phenomenon. During a revival tour that began in 2011, it's been a hit with audiences in the United States, Canada, Britain, Ireland, Brazil, Hungary, India, New Zealand, Italy, France, Mexico, Chile, Bulgaria, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Iceland, Russia, Poland, Czech Republic, Greece, Australia, The Philippines, South Africa, Panama, Colombia, Croatia, Bolivia, The Netherlands and Portugal. Besides the United States, which of those countries have you visited? Canada, Britain, Ireland, France, Denmark, The Netherlands, and Portugal

5) Peeps are big sellers every Easter. Would you rather have yellow chicks or pink bunnies? I have never eaten a whole Peep--I don't like marshmallow

6) Jelly beans are also popular this time of year. One theory says they were introduced in Boston during the 19th century. What else comes to mind when you think of Boston? Paul Revere

7) We've been talking a lot about sweets this morning. The only holiday that generates more candy sales is Halloween. When do you eat more candy: Easter or Halloween? Easter

8) Easter lilies will adorn many churches this Sunday. What's your favorite flower? ahh, sweet peonies!

9) Easter is considered the season of rebirth. What makes you feel refreshed or rejuvenated? a pedicure and a nap

"It's a love beat, and a love beat is a good vibration. A heartbeat is a love beat, and when we meet, it's a good sensation." That's going to be in my head all day now.

Glad your innovation worked out so well.

Naps have been my favorite thing as I've grown older. I don't get many, but when I do it's gold!

I need to learn to nap. You'd think that would be something one would do naturally, but apparently not.

How could we forget Paul Revere? And the only way marshmallows are good is in s'mores. ;-).
Aren't naps just delicious?
