I've got a random thought.

If England stopped giving zillions of caps to players who routinely fail at International Football Tournaments (Beckham, Ferdinand, Cole, Terry, Lampard, Gerrard, Rooney) maybe they'll start doing well at International Football Tournaments.

Limburger!



 ;)

My grandpa's brother put Limburger cheese under the hood of Grandpa's car on my grandparent's wedding day in 1920. I guess Grandpa wasn't the only wiseguy to come out of his family!

Yeah, and those were just his face slaps.  There were also eye pokes, head conks, nose honks, and lots more acts of mayhem...
 ;D

And perfect sound effects to go with them. I'm not saying that I think all that stuff is funny but I did laugh.  ;)

I'll bet no one, classmate or teacher, gave her any grief at school!

Arrgh! I'm stuck here at work waiting for a computer to install 39 updates so I can turn off the power strip. The really dumb part is that it's not actually even doing anything because it has software that prevents patrons from making changes. I'm afraid of shutting it off though. These computers run my life!

I'm watching a movie called 'Transcendence' where computers take over the world.

Powerful movie.

Kelley, ignore the "do not shut off computer" warning while updates are being installed.  If your 'puter is hung up, just shut it down.  Nothing bad will happen.  When you turn it back on, it will go through the update installation routine again.

Went to Le Tour de France in...erm...Woodford Green, Essex, England today!

What amazed me, apart from the fever pitch excitement of it all, was the absolute democracy of the event.
Old people, young people, male, female, people of different nationalities - and all of us paid the princely sum of 'zilch' to see it.

Adds fuel to my theory that, in 2014, the more you pay for something the less value you're likely to get.

I'm back home, thank God. If I hear one more Bob Marley cover song I think I'm going to vomit. (I couldn't even listen to the originals on the way home!)

Hope you all have been well. Can't wait to catch up on the forum! I hope those of you who were able to catch AHDN on the big screen had a fab time.  :)

Welcome home Kathy and I promise we won't make you listen to any reggae covers. We have this little shop in town called Ice Cream Island. It's the same sort of thing there and also Jimmy Buffet covers. Lots of them. I usually send one of the kids down to bring it home. :)

Welcome back, Kathleen.  When you cruise the Caribbean expect to hear reggae, I reckon.  Perhaps they should have played Paul's very ska early take of Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da...


The Beatles - Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da (Take 5)


 ;)




Take an Alaska cruise next time and you'll hear...


Manfred Mann - Mighty Quinn 1967


 ;D

Thanks, Kelley and Barry! After 2 weeks with my estranged/dysfunctional family, my nerves are pretty much shot.  :-\

Urgh, I was waiting -- hoping, almost -- to hear some Jimmy Buffet, just to get a break from "Is This Love," "Three Little Birds," etc., but no dice. It was a bit bizarre, actually; I would think Jimmy Buffet covers would be as popular as Bob Marley covers.

Perhaps they should have played Paul's very ska early take of Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da...

That would have been infinitely better!

"Desmond" was Paul's tribute to Desmond Dekker...


Israelites

Desmond Dekker & The Aces - "Israelites" (Official Audio)

Desmond Dekker & The Aces   1968

Great early reggae right there!!




On your cruise, they shoulda played...


The Harder They Come

JIMMY CLIFF - The Harder They Come

Jimmy Cliff   1972


Some good rough and tumble reggae there!!



I remember being on vacation in Saint-Martin in 1979.  One night, a local band was playing calypso standards by the pool.  The guests were enjoying it.  Me too, but they looked like a band that could play reggae so I walked up to the guitarist and asked him to play some reggae.  He quietly nodded and when they finished playing Yellow Bird, they played The Harder They Come followed by a couple more reggae songs.  You could see the band members were so happy doing that!  I think the guests enjoyed it too.  Then it was back to calypso...and Rum and Coca-Cola.

Thanks, as always, Barry, for posting those music links! I have to run out now, but looking forward to giving them a listen.

I really wish Firefox would stop updating with Beta versions. Every time they do that my You Tube experience gets messed up in some way! This is the worst; now I can only watch YouTube videos with Internet Explorer...and tons of ads. I guess it's time for me to adjust my Firefox settings to prevent automatic updates.
