saturday 9


1) The song is about a woman who is in love with her boyfriend, but still attracted to someone else. Do you believe a woman can be in love with more than one person at a time? yes

2) What about the male of the species? Do you believe a man can be in love with more than one person at a time? yes

3) This lyrics were by Gerry Goffin and the music by Carole King. Carole was a favorite guest of David Letterman's. When she appeared on his show, he often commented on how impressed he was by her firm handshake. She credited her memorable grip to time spent milking goats on her Idaho farm. Have you poured goat milk on your cereal? Eaten goat milk yogurt or cheese? No to milk on cereal, and yes to goat milk yogurt and cheese!

4) When it first came out, "Chains" was a favorite of 18-year-old George Harrison. It was at his recommendation that the Beatles added it to their early stage shows and even recorded it on their first album. When you were in high school, what was one of your favorite songs? "Two Hearts Beat As One" by U2 and "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" by the Police

5) In 1962, when this song was released, epic movies were popular on the big screen. The Longest Day was three hours long, and Lawrence of Arabia ran more than three hours and a half hours. Today's most popular movies are nowhere near that long. Do you think the average American has a shorter attention span today than he did in 1962? I think there's more competition for our attention now--plus a wider variety of venues for watching

6) In 1962, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy went on a two-week goodwill tour of India and Pakistan. She received a ceremonial "welcome necklace" in India. Made without jewels or precious metals -- just beads, sequins and paper -- it was valued by the First Lady for its delicate appearance and craftsmanship, and today it's on display at the John F. Kennedy Library. Tell us about a piece of jewelry that means a great deal to you, and why. I don't really have anything

7) In Pakistan, Mrs. Kennedy made headlines by riding a camel. Have you ever ridden a horse, donkey, camel or elephant? I've been horseback riding--in Aruba!

8) Also in 1962, the New York Newspaper Guild went on strike, so the nation's largest city went 114 days without a single daily paper. In 2018, how do you get your news? online and social media

9) Random question -- Complete this sentence: Before I go to sleep, I always
listen to a sleep meditation

Horseback riding in Aruba sounds fun.

I'm with Diana. Horseback riding in Aruba sounds so glam.

Stacy said...

I'm guessing that horseback ride was on the beach. That's on my bucket list.

I've tried some sleep meditation apps but they don't do much for me. I suppose I need to keep looking.

It's funny how much news we can get from social media. It is also kinda scary/

I really love a lot of U2's music, too. Me too U2! it's been fun listening to everyone's favorite selections.

So far, it looks like most of us feel that both men and women can feel love for more than one "other" at the same time.

About attention spans. A teacher would notice this much more, and have a more critical eye for it, I think. So I'm thinking more your way now. I'm beginning to see the original question in a new way, from the point of view of an observer who is just as mired in media overload as the subjects. But I still know that we have some serious problems that are related to shortened attention spans just in the last 35 years. And I'm glad it's getting scrutiny.
Have a lovely Sunday..
