Sorry.  I was wrong.  Dug out my Barry Manilow CDs this morning and Barry is definitly the memory man!  From "Bandstand Boogie" to"This One's For You" and everything in between, his songs were the accomapniment to my life for over three decades and every one evokes a memory.

Different things for different times.  The Beatles" White Album" for my wicked college years.  The Beach Boys "I Get Around" and "Fun, Fun, Fun" for high school.  I can even remember songs from my sixth grade "prom", i.e. "He'll Have To Go" and "Hello, Walls"  For some reason, lyrics are like smells to me.  They evoke strong memories.  These are just a few of hundreds!  Did I mention I love music?

I am not sure how funny this is, but.........     Warning, this will get into your head, and stay there!

Julie Andrews Turning 79 -


To commemorate her birthday , actress/vocalist, Julie Andrews made a special appearance at Manhattan's Radio City Music Hall for the benefit of the AARP. One of the musical numbers she performed was 'My Favorite Things' from the legendary movie 'Sound Of Music'. Here are the lyrics she used:



(Sing It!) - If you sing it, its especially hysterical!!!

Botox and nose drops and needles for knitting,
Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings,
Bundles of magazines tied up in string,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Cadillacs and cataracts, hearing aids and glasses,
Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses,
Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the pipes leak, When the bones creak,
When the knees go bad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don't feel so bad.

Hot tea and crumpets and corn pads for bunions,
No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions,
Bathrobes and heating pads and hot meals they bring,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Back pain, confused brains and no need for sinnin',
Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin',
And we won't mention our short shrunken frames,
When we remember our favorite things.

When the joints ache, When the hips break,
When the eyes grow dim,
Then I remember the great life I've had,
And then I don't feel so bad.
>>>>>>>>>>>>> > >>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>
(Ms. Andrews received a standing ovation from the crowd -That lasted over four minutes and repeated encores.
