No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)

1) This lyrics use weather as metaphor for romance. Here at Saturday 9, we're more literal. How do the skies look where you are this morning? the skies are clear blue and the sun is beaming! but it's 24 degrees out

2) According to Merriam-Webster, "enough is enough" is what you say when you want something to stop because you "can no longer accept or deal with it." When did you recently say -- out loud or to yourself -- "enough is enough." just today

3) Grammy winner Luther Vandross began his career as a background singer and performed on "No More Tears." Tell us about one of your early jobs. I was a nanny and loved it!

4) Both Donna Summer and Barbra Streisand made slight changes to their first names. Summer was christened "LaDonna," while Streisand's parents spelled her name the more conventional "Barbara." When she was in high school, meme mistress Samantha Winters went from "Sammy" to "Sam." Did you ever make a similar change to your first name? everyone called me by my childhood nickname when I was in school--when my actual name was read off on my diploma for high school graduation, people were shocked!

5) Hair was higher maintenance in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Streisand and Summer are both sporting styles that would require chemical treatment, like a perm or relaxer. Today's looks are less rigidly styled and tend to be smoother or slightly messy. How often do you change your look?
I still get perms--I have had roughly the same hairstyle for 20+ years

6) In 1979, it seems every kid was asking Santa for Star Wars toys. Some things don't change, since the Star Wars franchise remains popular with children and toymakers after more than 40 years. What book or toy did you love as a child that remains popular today? Winnie the Pooh books and toys

7) Thinking of things that endure ... In 1979, the #1 show in the ratings was 60 Minutes. It's still on, every Sunday night, and in the summer of 2019 it came in at #4 in the Nielsen ratings. What's the most recent show you watched? Was it news, sports or entertainment? I watched the local news which is so laughably horrible, I feel like I'm watching a satire of what poor news broadcasts are like

8) In 1979, the price for a dozen eggs averaged 85¢. Today, it's about twice that. Are you more likely to use eggs to prepare a main course (like an omelette or Eggs Benedict) or as part of a recipe (anything from a cake to a meatloaf)? well now, since I don't cook, I don't ever buy eggs

9) Random question: You’re alone in your car, driving through your neighborhood on a bright, sunny day. You get a flat tire. You have a spare and a jack in your trunk. Would you fix it yourself or call for help? I'd be surprised if someone didn't stop to help me, but I have AAA in case!

  1. I would have AAA if I didn't have a husband.

  3. Is 24 your daytime high? It was 26 here when I left for work this morning, but it got up into the 40's. It's been pouring rain for a few hours now and the temp is dropping again. We just might see some snow. Yea. Not.

  5. The last time I had a flat tire all the cars went wheezing by as I struggled to change the tire and then this nice teenage stopped, he changed my tire and put everything back in their place in the trunk.
