Remembering The Beatles

The 60's produced some of the most imaginative and newest sounds of the day when The Beatles arrived in America. Their enormous appeal had the same effects on the public as the early days of Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley.

The recent appearance of Paul McCartney on the David Letterman Show and the subsequent outdoor performance by McCartney brought back old memories and especially The Beatles live performances on the Ed Sullivan Show.

This is another video taken from The Beatles appearance in Shea Stadium. It was an unbelievable new musical direction of the times with a totally new sound. As a musician and singer, the distinct sound of British rock was very intriguing and The Beatles and other groups including the Rolling Stones certainly changed musical America.

An Amish boy and his father were visiting a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again. The boy asked, "What is this, Father?" The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, "Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is."

While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a rather heavy, not too attractive, older lady walked up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady walked between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small circular numbers above the walls light up sequentially.

They continued to watch until it reached the last number and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order. Finally the walls opened up again and a beautiful, young woman stepped out. The father, said quietly to his son, "Go get your Mother".

That's it for now my little orange blossoms. More soon!

Stay Tuned !
