Maybe you've seen it, maybe
not, but it's worth watching
again ~ a heart-warming way
to spend the 2019 New Year.
  Here's a trailer.

 

 

Just because you've seen it before doesn't
mean it's not still funny.

 

Get ready, Baby Boomers.  A new survey will be posted soon, asking for movie recommendations ~ movies that perhaps many have NOT seen, but it's one of your favorites.  Mine, for example, is "Finding Forrester," a surprisingly fine movie with Sean Connery.  Another favorite is "Music & Lyrics," with Hugh Grant & Drew Barrymore.  You be a-thinkin' on it, ok?

 

 

 

Below, the Doo Wop collection.  You were, maybe, 5 or 6.

 

 

Thanks a bunch, Barry!

A.A.A.D.D.

KNOW THE SYMPTOMS!

(Thank God there's a name for this disorder!)

Age-Activated Attention Deficit Disorder

This is how it manifests:

I decide to water my garden.
As I turn on the hose in the driveway,

I look over at my car & decide it needs washing.    


As I start toward the garage,
I notice mail on the porch that I
brought up from the mailbox earlier.

I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.

I lay my car keys on the table,
put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table, 
and notice that the garbage can is full.


So I decide to put the bills back on the
table & take out the garbage first....

But then I think,   
Since I'm going to be near the mailbox
when I take out the garbage anyway,
I may as well pay the bills first.


I take my checkbook off the table
and see that there's only one check left.
My extra checks are in my desk in the study.
So I go inside to my desk where
I find the can of Diet Coke I
'd been drinking.
                            

I'm going to look for my checks,
but first I need to put the Diet Coke aside
so that I don't accidentally knock it over.

 

The Diet Coke is getting warm, and I
decide to put it in the fridge to keep it cold.

As I head toward the kitchen with the Diet Coke,
A vase of flowers on the counter
catches my eye--- they need water.

                                                         

I put the Diet Coke on the counter &
discover my reading glasses that I've
been searching for all morning.
I decide I'd better put them back on my desk,
but first I'm going to water the flowers.

I set the glasses back down on the counter,
Fill a container with water & suddenly spot the tv remote.
Someone left it on the kitchen table.

                                                     

But I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table.
So I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs,
But first I'll water the flowers.


I pour some water in the vase,
But quite a bit of it spills on the floor.
So I set the remote back on the table,
Get some towels & wipe up the spill.

                                                       

Then I head down the hall trying to
Remember what I was planning to do.

 

At the end of the day:
The car isn't washed.
The bills aren't paid.
There is a warm can of Diet Coke 
sitting on the counter.
The flowers don't have enough water.
There is still only one check in my checkbook.
I can't find the remote.
I can't find my glasses,
And I don't remember what I did with
the car keys.

Then when I try to figure out why nothing
got done today,
I'm really baffled because I know I was
busy all day,
And I'm really tired.

 

I realize this is a serious problem, and
I'll try to get some help for it;
but first I'll check my email.

 

Don't laugh ~ If this isn't you yet,
your day is coming!

Mostly songs from the 50s, but since
our class spans the 50s & 60s,
these might be fun to listen to. 

 

 

 


  ONE WORLD OBSERVATORY
Take a trip through time and history on your way to the top.
(from Gerald Watson, MHS '60) 

 

 

 

 

 

Remember the seats in the Lynn Movie Theater?

Looking to waste several minutes of your life?  If
you're looking for something to drink a cup of coffee by, this
video will give you a few seconds of each of the top 100 songs of the 60s
(according to the guy who put it together).  Nice reminiscing.

15. Your investment in health

    either.

 

18. Your supply of brain cells

 Poor Barry.  At his advanced age, a morning cup of Joe just won't jump-start the boy.  He now needs a hit

from this video, below, to get his motor running, and
recommends you try this, too.  A little eye-candy with
your coffee never hurts.  Thanks, Barry.    (Turn off Player,
