Another of my favorites is the debut, self titled album, for The Archies. It was the first album that I purchased on its release day. In 1968, I got Mother to drive me to the Kmart in Sandy Springs where I picked it off the record sections new release end cap. I played it over and over, hundreds of times before I dropped it and lost the first two songs on each side!
Believer or not, if you follow the UFO stories you’ve probably heard of Stanton Friedman. He was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey July 29, 1934. He would graduate from the University of Chicago with a Bachelor of Science (1955) and Master of Science (1956) degrees in nuclear physics. For 14 years he was employed as a nuclear physicist for a impressive list of large corporations.
Well, there is the Sundance Film Festival, Super Bowl Sunday, Mardi Gras, the Masters Golf Tournament, The Boston Marathon, Comic-Con, Dragon-Con, the Peachtree Road Race and the Burning Man Festival. These things happen, well maybe not in a pandemic, but that couldn’t even stop me from posting 365 days in a row, here on Doyle’s Space.
An Evening of Yes Music Plus is a recording of the group’s concert at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California, on September 9, 1989 that was originally broadcast on the King Biscuit Flower Hour radio program.
Why do people, taking photos , say “Say Cheese!” to their subjects? The odds are fairly good for a “Cheeky” smile if saying the word “Cheese!”. The “Ch” sound causes you to clench your teeth and then the long “ee” parts your lips making that grinning expression.
I watched Universal Pictures 1966 comedy/horror film “The Ghost and Mr. Chicken” (for the umpteenth time) on Svengoolie. This movie stars Barney, I mean Don Knotts, as Luther Heggs, the typesetter at the local newspaper. He spends a night in a haunted house, where there had been a murder-suicide, and on this 20th anniversary of the event, witnesses a series of horrifying events. When his story is published by the paper, Luther is a hero but the home owner, Simmons, sues the newspaper and Luther for liable.
May 3, 2020 was the day I adopted Cort. He had been rescued by my friend Ken and the Vet had guessed his age as three. I gave him this day as his Birthday, May 3, 2017. Happy 4th Birthday Cort!
Beautiful day for a launch, blue sky and 82 degrees, low humidity. We had a great time as usual, the wind even cooperated as we only had some occasional gusts. There were several rockets flown that had been photographed recently and not represented here.
My first album, in this series of posts, is The Beatles (aka the white album). I love all the Beatles records but I’ve always had a special place in my heart for this diverse work of art. I originally had it on cassettes! It also has such an exciting cover! It was released on November 22, 1968, was the groups 9th studio album and their only double. The album has been certified 24× platinum by the RIAA.
