Louis Armstrong-The Bare Necessities


Look for the, Bear Necessities
The simple bear Necessitites,
Forget about your worries and your strife.
I mean the, Bear Necessities
Oh, Mother Nature’s recipies that bring the Bear Necessities to life.

Where-ever I wander, where-ever I rome,
I couldn’t be fonder, of my big home.
The bees are buzzin in the trees
To make some honey just for me.
When you look under the rocks and plants,
Take a glance at the fancy ants
And maybe try a few!
The Bear Necessities of life will come to you!

Look for the Bear Necessities,
The simple Bear Necessities,
Forget about your worries and your strife!
I mean the Bear Necessities,
It’s why a bear can rest-at-ease
With just the Bear Necessities of life!

Now when you pick a raw paw, or prickly pear.
And you pick a raw paw, next time beware.
Don’t pick the prickly pear by paw
When you try to pick, try to use the claw.
But you don’t need to use the claw
When you pick-a-pear from the big paw paw.
Have I given you a clue?

The Bear Necessities of life will come to you
(They’ll come to me)
They’ll come to you.

Stevie Nicks – After the Glitter Fades



Written by Stevie Nicks.

Well I never thought I’d make it
Here in Hollywood…
I never thought I’d ever
Want to stay…
What I seem to touch these days
Has turned to gold…
What I seem to want
Well you know I’ll find a way

For me… it’s the only life
That I’ve ever known
And love is only one…
Fine star… away
Even though the living
Is sometimes laced with lies…
It’s alright…
The feeling remains
Even after the glitter fades

The loneliness of a one night stand
Is hard to take
We all chase something
And maybe this is a dream
The timeless face of a rock and roll
Woman… while her heart breaks
Oh you know… the dream keeps coming
Even when you forget to feel

For me… it’s the only life…
That I’ve ever known
And love is only one… fine star away
Even though the living
Is sometimes laced with lies…
It’s alright…
The feeling remains…
Even after the glitter fades

For me… it’s the only life
That I’ve ever known
And love is only one fine star away
Even though the living
Is sometimes laced with lies
It’s alright…
The feeling remains
Even after the glitter fades
Oh you know… the feeling remains
Even after the glitter fades
Oh the feeling remains…
Even after the glitter… fades  

Stevie Nicks/Lindsey Buckingham – Soldier’s Angel (In Your Dreams; 2011) (The war is dead: Long live the war!)


STEVIE NICKS
“Soldier’s Angel”
 

I am a soldier’s angel
Through the eyes of a soldier
Through the eyes of a soldier
I am a soldier’s mother
Through the eyes of an angel
I am a soldier myself
And no one walks away
From this battle

I’m a soldier myself
In the presence of angels
I am a soldier’s widow
In the background at night
I am a ghostly shadow
As I follow close behind them
I try to push them gently
Back into the light

I am a soldier’s angel
Four years later
In a war of words between worlds
Mmmmm
About what is wrong
About what is righteous
I am a soldier’s girl

I am a soldier’s memory
As I write down these words
I try to write their stories
And explain them to the world
I float through the halls of the hospitals
I am a soldier’s nurse
I keep the tears inside
And put them down in verse

I am a soldier’s angel
Four years later
In a war of words between worlds
Mmmmm
About what is wrong
About what is righteous
I am a soldier’s girl

I am a soldier’s girlfriend
As I look upon their faces
They make me remember my first love
And going out to dances
They make me remember Camelot
And being young
And taking chances They make me fall in love again
They give me all the answers

I am a soldier’s angel
Four years later
In a war of words between worlds
Mmmmm
About what is wrong
About what is righteous
I am a soldier’s girl

I’m a soldier in their army
They are the soldiers of my heart
I try to make them smile again
Though it tears me apart
Their bravery leaves me spellbound
I… try to be a small part
Of bringing them back again
They are the soldiers of my heart

I am a soldier’s angel
Four years later
In a war of words between worlds
Mmmmm
About what is wrong
About what is righteous
I am a soldier’s girl

I’m a soldier’s angel
Through the eyes of a soldier
Through the eyes of a soldier
I’m a soldier’s mother
Through the eyes of an angel
I’m a soldier myself
No one walks away
From this… battle

GREEK SUBWAY PROJECT UNEARTHS ANCIENT ROMAN ROAD


Greek Subway Project Unearths Ancient Roman Road

Thessaloniki’s subway project is years behind schedule, thanks in part to a number of archeological discoveries that have been made during the course of excavations. Most recently, a large section of a nearly 2,000-year-old road built by the Romans was uncovered. Marks left by children’s board games as well as cart wheels can still be seen on some of the marble slabs that made up the city’s main thoroughfare at the time. Beneath that road, archeologists found an even older road laid by the Greeks centuries earlier. Developers now plan to raise the ancient road and place it on display when the transit system opens. More… Discuss

MASLENITSA


Maslenitsa

Also known as Butter Week, Cheesefare Week, and Pancake Week, Maslenitsa is a Russian folk and religious holiday. Originally a pagan festival celebrating the end of winter, it was later adopted by Orthodox Christians to mark the final week that dairy, eggs, parties, and dancing may be enjoyed before Great Lent. A weeklong pancake party, the festival is presided over by Lady Maslenitsa, a colorful woman made of straw. What happens to her and the leftover pancakes on the festival’s last day? More… Discuss

Today’s Quotation: Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) on Violence is Powerlessness Manifested


All violence, all that is dreary and repels, is not power, but the absence of power.

Today’s Birthday: GOTTFRIED WILHELM LEIBNIZ (1646)


Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646)

Leibniz was a German philosopher and mathematician who greatly expanded the field of calculus. He also perfected the binary number system—the basis for modern computing—and constructed one of the first practical calculators. A jack-of-all-trades, Leibniz worked on mechanical devices, delved into the study of logic, was a historian and lawyer at times, and is considered one of the fathers of geology. In the early 1700s, he became embroiled in a controversy with Isaac Newton over what issue? More… Discuss
