Yeah, don't skip the torture. Those therapists definitely know what they're doing. Makes a world of difference in the rehab.

"She's a Lady" is my favorite of his though it's very sexist.

The weather is even getting crazy in "The Best Location in the Nation" (from an old Cleveland commercial). Yep, there was an earthquake that affected those in Northeast Ohio. Supposedly, it was a 4.0 magnitude earthquake whose epicenter was in Lake Erie (north of Eastlake):

Happily, no one got hurt.
In that vein, it reminded me of a song. Here are 2 renditions:





One the most UNDERappreciated musical geniuses of our time......of course, marrying one's 14-yr. old cousin might cause a dip in one's marketability, wouldn't ya say?

Ironically, I was helping to put some items into storage, and we stacked some of them rather high. 1 of the other helpers asked me if I thought the items would stay put, and I said, "I think we're OK. We won't be getting hit by any earthquakes." A half hour later, I get an alert from the Weather Channel app about the quake 60 miles up the road near Cleveland. Such is my luck.

FWIW, I also killed Dale Earnhardt. While watching the later stages of that '01 Daytona 500, I said "I hate Dale Earnhardt and wish he would die." Within a matter of laps, it happened. Sometimes, I scare myself.

Mr. Slippery,
As you know, I have always thought of you as a very close brother to me.

Do you think I could maybe get you to say.....oh, I don't know.......maybe something like "I really like Monclova Steve and wish he'd win the lottery"?

So, YOU'RE the one responsible for killing Dale Earnhardt! I thought it was just a rumor.

Within the last year, I made two similarly bad comments (predictions?), which both came true. I need to keep my mouth shut.

OK, I didn't sever Earnhardt's HANS device, and it was Sterling Marlin driving the car that put him into the wall, but I absolutely made the statement during the latter half of the race that I hated him and wished he would die (a handful of my frat brothers heard it loud and clear). I was a Jeff Gordon fan, and I always disliked how biased FOX's coverage was toward Earnhardt (and later "Junior").

I also wished death upon Jim Varney (most famous for his roles in the "Ernest" movies) only weeks before he died. I also wished death upon MTV personality Tom Green. He was diagnosed with testicular cancer but survived it.

Don't ever get on my bad side.

070 Wonderfulness - Bill Cosby (1966)

"The odd wheel was because Weird Harold had a Continental"

Quote:
Edsel Ford had a special car built after returning from a trip to Europe that would have
a "continental look" – including a spare tire mounted on the trunk. The 1939 Lincoln
Continental's short trunk with its external rear spare tire mount became a distinctive design.
While this was not the first car to either carry its spare above the rear bumper or integrated
into the rear bodywork, it was the first to do it so elegantly and thus this feature became
known as a "Continental tire" even if the design was found on other brands.

Quote:
"Der Sommerwind" was a song composed in 1965 by Heinz Meier, with German language lyrics
written by Hans Bradtke. The song was changed to English by Johnny Mercer, who had heard the
song being sung by Danish singer Grethe Ingmann who had also recorded the song in her native
language as "Sommervind". He wrote replacement lyrics along the same theme. The song talks of
the sirocco wind which passes from North Africa into Southern Europe at the end of summer, and
uses this as a metaphor for the changing of the seasons and the passing of time.

Camelot the stage musical...

Broadway Original cast recording


1961 U.S. Pop Albums (Billboard) 1 (America's top-selling LP for 60 weeks)

Notes:
Quote:
ohiopup comment: I am surprised that the author chose this as opposed to the
cast recording of the stage production which was immensely more popular.
Camelot the musical based on the King Arthur legend (adapted from T. H. White's
novel The Once and Future King); concept, plot and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner, music by
Frederick Loewe.

The original 1960 stage production, ran on Broadway for 873 performances, won four Tony Awards
and resulted in foreign productions, 1967 film "Camelot', and numerous revivals.

2 songs talk about the weather... both notable: "Camelot" & "If Ever I Would Leave You"

The musical has become associated with the Kennedy Administration, which is sometimes called
the "Camelot Era" as it was favorite bedtime listening for President John F. Kennedy.
(TRIVIA ~ Lerner was a Kennedy classmate at Harvard University)

Kennedy's favorite lines were in the final number (in which Arthur knights a young boy and
tells him to pass on the story of Camelot to future generations):

Don't let it be forgot
That once there was a spot,
For one brief, shining moment
That was known as Camelot.



"Camelot" lyrics

ARTHUR (Richard Burton) sings...

It's true! It's true! The crown has made it clear.
The climate must be perfect all the year.

A law was made a distant moon ago here:
July and August cannot be too hot.
And there's a legal limit to the snow here
In Camelot.

The winter is forbidden till December
And exits March the second on the dot.
By order, summer lingers through September
In Camelot.

Camelot! Camelot!
I know it sounds a bit bizarre,
But in Camelot, Camelot
That's how conditions are.

The rain may never fall till after sundown.
By eight, the morning fog must disappear.
In short, there's simply not
A more congenial spot
For happily-ever-aftering than here
In Camelot.

Camelot! Camelot!
I know it gives a person pause,
But in Camelot, Camelot
Those are the legal laws.

The snow may never slush upon the hillside.
By nine p.m. the moonlight must appear.
In short, there's simply not
A more congenial spot
For happily-ever-aftering than here
In Camelot.

The musical made Robert Goulet made him a household name among American
audiences. (Much to the chagrin of Elvis Presley who reportedly would shoot a TV anytime
Goulet was on the tube)

(Goulet) "If Ever I Would Leave You"...

*** Famous Bulldogs & Famous Buckeyes ***

Harley 'Marty' Mull

https://www.cantonrep.com/article/20...NEWS/301049844

Quote:
Stark’s greatest swimmer, ‘Marty’ Mull, dies at 68
Marty Mull, shown in this undated photo at Ohio State, helped lead McKinley High School to
four state team swimming championships before heading off to help the Buckeyes claim the 1962
NCAA national championship. Mull passed away unexpectedly Monday.

By Jim Thomas

Posted Jan 4, 2011 at 12:01 AM & Jan 4, 2011 at 4:03 AM

Harley M. “Marty” Mull has been the gold standard for Stark County swimmers for more than half
a century. A multiple state youth, high school and college champion swimmer, Mull died at the
age of 68 after suffering a heart attack Monday in California, said his brother, Canton
resident Gary Mull.

Harley M. “Marty” Mull has been the gold standard for Stark County swimmers for more than half
a century.

Mull never lost an individual race swimming for McKinley High School, led the Bulldogs to four
team championships, then went to Ohio State and won two individual national titles and helped
Ohio State to the 1962 team championship, its last to this day.

A multiple state youth, high school and college champion swimmer, Mull died at the age of 68
after suffering a heart attack Monday in California, said his brother, Canton resident Gary Mull.

“He had a heart attack. He (and his wife, Jolanda) went to visit his daughter, Reagan, in
California. He had had heart attacks before. He had recently seen his heart doctor and he said
... ‘Nothing’s wrong.’

“Then this morning he gets up, gets out of bed — and we lost him. It was quite a surprise.”

Marty Mull was the anchor of legendary coach C.T. “Ted” Branin’s powerhouse McKinley program
that dominated Ohio pools in the 1950s. With Mull the lead dog, McKinley won state 1957-1960 as
he won four state individual titles in as many races and swam on three championship relays.

After high school, he went to Ohio State, where he won the 200 IM in 1962 (2:02.3) and 1963
(2:01.6), the latter the NCAA record at the time. Mull was an NCAA All-American in the
Individual Medley from 1962-1964.

He is a member of the Greater Stark County Aquatics Association’s inaugural Hall of Fame Class
of 1985 and was enshrined into the Men’s Varsity “O” Hall of Fame at Ohio State in 2002.

But Mull was much more than a great swimmer, said his brother.
“He retired as a teacher. He taught 36 years at McKinley — phys ed, biology, swimming,” Gary
Mull said. “He really made good use out of that pool!

“He was a great father, brother, son and teacher. He will be sorely missed.”

Both Gary, 63, and younger brother Mike, 59, grew up in the pools around Toledo watching their
older brother smash record after record before moving to Canton before Marty’s freshman year at
McKinley.

“If it wasn’t for him, who knows what we would be doing now,” said Gary. “We just got dragged
along to the Toledo Y. He was such a great swimmer, better than me and Mike combined. He set a
pretty high standard in athletics for us.

“But because of him, swimming was influential in my life. I swam in high school and college — I
swam at Miami, Mike at Ohio State — and I met a lot of people along the way (that affected me).

“Marty had a great impact on many people. He was a great coach. He went to 8-lane scoring,
rather than four. And he swam everybody. Everybody on the team had the chance to swim (because
of that).”

Wonderful memories when I see the songs from the 60s.

I didn't know the Stones had a song called " Stupid Girl". I only know of the version by Garbage, whom I saw many years ago with Lit when I took my elder daughter to PA. She was an avid fan of Garbage - possibly still is.
