Sounds of silence

Simon wrote “The Sounds of Silence” the year before while living with his parents. “The main thing about playing the guitar was that I was able to sit by myself and play and dream,” Simon told Playboy. “And I was always happy doing that. I used to go off in the bathroom, because the bathroom had tiles, so it was a slight echo chamber. I’d turn on the faucet so that water would run – I like that sound, it’s very soothing to me – and I’d play. In the dark. ‘Hello darkness, my old friend / I’ve come to talk with you again.’”
Simon and tenor Art Garfunkel honed the song in Greenwich Village coffeehouses before they recorded “The Sounds of Silence” with producer Tom Wilson. Backed by just two acoustic guitars and an upright bass, “The Sounds of Silence” was drowned out by the wave of Beatlemania that swept America in 1964. Discouraged, the longtime friends split up. Simon moved to England and Garfunkel returned to college in New York.

Bobby Goldsboro ~ Honey ~ 1968

Honey" wasn't just a hit -- it was No. 1 for five weeks in April-May 1968, one of the biggest songs of the year. According to a Bobby Goldsboro tribute site, songwriter Bobby Russell initially gave the song to Kingston Trio member Bob Shane; when Shane's version got off to a slow start, Russell (who also wrote "Little Green Apples" and "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia") allowed Goldsboro to release it, and the recording took off immediately.

(The Kingston Trio also did an early version of "Seasons in the Sun." Coincidence? I think not.)

I've always been at a loss to its success. Sure, it's about a "Love Story"-type romance, and those sorts of tearjerkers sell. But the narrator of "Honey" isn't even kind to his wife: He laughs when she slips, describes her as "kinda dumb and kinda smart" and mocks her for crying at the late show.

Righteous Brother Unchained Melody

Although the Righteous Brothers' version is the most-remembered today, it was by no means the first or most-successful "Unchained Melody." Four versions of the song made the Top 40 in 1955, three of them simultaneously in the Top 20: Les Baxter (#1 - from the movie Unchained), Al Hibbler (#3 - first vocal version), Roy Hamilton (#6), June Valli (#29). All four of these recordings were in the US Top 40 on May 14, 1955. Harry Belafonte also recorded a version that year.

Time's passing by ~ Bee Gees

"The Bee Gees auditioned for ‘Anything Goes’ and immediately signed a contract.
Lots of other appearances followed like ‘Brisbane Tonight’, and ‘Strictly for Moderns’.
The television performances of The Bee Gees caught a lot of attention in Brisbane.
Their popularity was so big that they got a regular appearance in a program called Cottee’s Happy Hour’ which was financed by Cottee, a soft drink and jam manufacturer.
Because of their young age the boys had to ask permission from the head teacher to do this show every week.
Barbara or Hugh dropped them of for the performance and Hugh at that point decided to devote his full energies to the management of his sons’ careers.
With them he developed an adult floor show that was to play most of Australia’s top entertainment clubs.
They sang songs like:Dinah, Bye Bye Blackbird, Will You Love Me Tomorrow and ultimately songs from their own records."

Surviving Life with pride
Introduction
I decided to edit this profile, my profile as there have been so many changes and i'm sorry to say not all of them have been good...but hey there are always new adventures to be made and ways to find laughter.
I was in a serious car accident in November 2014 and its amazing - nothing wrong with my legs..yipee I can walk and one day run lol.  I can talk, although I sound a bit different these days and as my daughter said..mom you have not changed ( um not sure if that's good or bad )  On the other hand I had to wear a halo as I broke my neck, many other bones and its a pretty long list.  The fact is I'm alive and having a chance to live again.

I'm told that I'm pretty smart and know how to do things, I will let you be the judge.

I have been through many marriages and split ups..I have even been with a special person in his life as he went through his personal hell and was proud to be there for him and his kids ( who I feel are part of my family now)
I think I have survived just about any negative thrown at me and while I am not the same person, I would like to think that I am a more understanding person especially when it comes to being near toxic people and abusive people.

On a positive side, I love dogs and cats in equal order...lol what does that make me?
I love this online world, social media and I truly feel that blogging is a venue for anyone wanting good information on any topic you can think of..
I believe that even though we are a global society, we need to learn more on how to get along with others, to find better ways to solve problems and for goodness sakes we need to learn to have fun and laugh!
I guess if you want to know more...just ask



 




Bragging rights
I have survived abusive relationships with my sanity kind of okay and I survived a car crash that apparently I should not have survived..but obviously did lol. I am so proud of my girls and grandsons..a good reason to brag and I am very very proud of my extended family......kids who are doing their best to have a good llfe...and they dang well deserve the very best they can have.

I have been hearing a lot of negatives about the Kelowna hospital..so to balance the reviews... From the time I remember which was November 16,2014 ( I had been in an induced coma) to the time I left in January 2015...I have to say that everyone and I mean everyone from the nurses, rehab, housekeeping the hospital doctors and the social workers did everything to help me, to care for my needs in every way possible.. sometimes they went out of their way to help me through the pain and the trauma. Its important to remember that the men and women who work on the front lines are understaffed and with so many patients- not enough beds having to be in hallways, which trust me as I was there done that - . they still did all they could to make a patient as comfortable as they could. Are there problems in this hospital...damn rights there are..hire more nurses and hire more staff please... from a patients point of view..the staff are getting tired from being over worked and that is just a simple fact!! I will end with a simple and most sincere thank you... you guys were and are the best...
