Simon and Garfunkel, 1968 I am just a poor boy. Though my story's seldom told, I have squandered my resistance For a pocketful of mumbles, Such are promises All lies and jest Still, a man hears what he wants to hear And disreg... Read more

Signs
Saturday, November 12, 2011      9 comments

A friend sent me an Email with these signs in it - they really don't have much to do with the song, but I thought they were funny! The Five Man Electrical Band from 1970. And the sign said "Long-haired freaky people need not apply" So I ... Read more

Long Days Night
Monday, November 07, 2011      4 comments

I was up most of last night - watching TV, reading, falling into a quick snooze. Rewinding the recorded show, trying to figure out where I was in the book when I dozed off... Not a productive use of time with the extra hour. Totally messed up to... Read more
