I actually Googled what the time was. And I found it.

My brother-in-law is from El Salvador, and he recently had to check in to the hospital for lung surgery. The staff at the hospital assumed he didn't speak English (which he does better than most native English speakers), and when they were getting ready to prep him, they told my sister to go into the back with him because they'd need her help. They took him into holding area for surgery patients and the nurse said to my sister, "Tell him to give you his wedding ring, his wallet, his watch, and any other valuables to hold while he's in the OR." My seester turned to her hubby, looked him dead in the eyes and said, "Give me your watch, your wedding ring, your wallet, and any other valuables you have so I can hold them for you while you're in the OR."

They made her go back to the waiting room after that.

It was, thank heavens. Thank you for asking. He is literally the strongest man I've ever seen. They let him go home a full four days earlier than expected, and he's supposed to take it easy for another 4 weeks or so, but he's doing very well.

You only think that because you've never seen Dinzdale, 'Hontas -- now there's a guy who's really strong.

Wow. So our Dinzdale is the Dinzdale of Legendary Guns I've heard tell of? I thought it was just a "his name is my name too" kind of thing...

Dear Mrs. Jones,

I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, an exotic dancer.

I work at Home Depot and explained to my daughter how hectic it was last week before the blizzard hit. I told her that we sold out every single shovel we had and then I found one more in the back room. Naturally, several people were fighting over who would get it. Her picture doesnít show me dancing around a pole, rather, itís supposed to depict me selling the last snow shovel we had at Home Depot.

From now on I will check her homework more thoroughly before she turns it in.

"It is easy to overlook this thought that life just is. As humans we are inclined to feel that life must have a point. We have plans and aspirations and desires. We want to take constant advantage of the intoxicating existence we've been endowed with. But what's life to a lichen? Yet its impulse to exist, to be , is every bit as strong as ours-arguably even stronger. If I were told that I had to spend decades being a furry growth on a rock in the woods, I believe I would lose the will to go on. Lichens don't. Like virtually all living things, they will suffer any hardship, endure any insult, for a moment's additions existence. Life, in short just wants to be." ~Bill Bryson

yeah, just fluked it, wasn't really listening but caught "George Town, the oldest town..." and thought there's only one man I know who introduces himself like that.

05-16-2009, 11:38 AM
Cross media attention whoring -- somebody, somewhere, is preparing a white paper on this. Quite possibly Ron himself.

05-17-2009, 03:42 AM
Wow, it IS him, it matches his bio (http://www.zefrank.com/bulletin_new/member.php?u=1541). What's the chances? :D
I sometimes listen to Life Matters but I didn't catch it on Friday. Nice one, Hfox!

"Abbey Road: Song by Song

The Beatles Are the Most Creative Band of All Time
Relive The Glory Of Beatles Albums And The Beatles Phenomenon

Abbey Road was a huge critical & commercial success. It remains one of The Beatles most popular albums to this day.

Abbey Road has also been critically acclaimed. For example it was ranked #14 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the top 500 albums of all time. And it's currently ranked as the 2nd best album of all time by the users of the Rate Your Music website.

Track By Track:

#1 "Come Together"

This is one of the most well known songs on the album. Complete with John Lennon's signature vocal and weird lyrics, George Harrison's great lead guitar licks, and Paul McCartney's swampy bass part that really puts the song over the edge.

It's one of The Beatles coolest sounding songs, but strangely enough - it's also one of their songs that's been ruined the most in cover versions. In fact I've never heard a cover version of "Come Together" that wasn't awful.

A disturbing bit of trivia about "Come Together" is that John Lennon is actually saying "shoot me" during the little musical breaks between the chorus and the verses. That lyric always gets to me a little bit considering Lennon's fate in 1980.

2. "Something"

"Something" is another one of the best known songs on the album. It was written and sung by George Harrison and is one of his signature songs.

Frank Sinatra once famously commented that "Something" was his favorite Lennon-McCartney song. I'm not sure if that was an insult aimed at Lennon-McCartney or if Sinatra really didn't know the song was written by George Harrison & not Lennon & McCartney.

3. "Maxwell's Silver Hammer"

A somewhat disturbingly childlike tale of a serial killer, "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" is one of The Beatles songs has both it's detractors and it's supporters. Among it's detractors was apparently John Lennon who is said to have despised the song (which was written & sung by Paul McCartney.)

The song is one of the first to feature the Moog synthesizer.

4. "Oh! Darling"

While Lennon hated McCartney's "Maxwell Silver's Hammer," he loved his "Oh! Darling." In fact he was so enamored with the song that he wanted to sing lead on it.

5. "Octopus's Garden"

Ringo sings lead on this one. He also wrote the song (with some help from George Harrison although Ringo Starr is credited as the only songwriter.) It's basically a rewrite of "Yellow Submarine" which The Beatles had recorded 3 years earlier.

6. "I Want You (She's So Heavy)"

This epic, mostly instrumental, track finishes off side one of Abbey Road in grand fashion with it's amazing white noise buildup trick which blows my mind every time I hear it.

It really features some of The Beatles most interesting innovative work musically.

7. "Here Comes The Sun"

This is another George Harrison classic which is the perfect follow up to "I Want You" in the CD/iTunes/iPod format and the perfect opener to side two in the old vinyl LP format. The song, like "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" features the Moog synthesizer.

8. "Because"

This stunning song features some of The Beatles most beautiful harmonies. Lennon, McCartney, & Harrison's vocals were triple tracked to make them sound like 9 voices.

The chords of the song were inspired by Ludwig van Beethoven's classic piano piece "Moonlight Sonata."

The song also features the Moog synthesizer.

#9 "You Never Give Me Your Money"

This was the first song of side two's medley. Some of the melodies heard in this song were echoed later in track 15 "Carry That Weight."

While the song is just the beginning of side two's medley, it's really a medley in and of itself as it contains a few very different sounding sections that sound stitched together.

#10 "Sun King"

This beautiful slow motion song features more beautiful harmonies from Lennon, McCartney, & Harrison. The song's lyrics include words from different languages, both real and imagined.

#11 "Mean Mr. Mustard"

This short Lennon ditty leads directly into the next "Polythene Pam" and mentions "his sister Pam" in the lyrics.

#12 "Polythene Pam"

"So good looking but she looks like a man." This is a great rock n roll track that clocks in barely over a minute long.

#13 "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window"

"Polythene Pam" segues smoothly into this song which starts off with it's title as the first lyric. It's one of my favorite songs on the album.

#14 "Golden Slumbers"

The lyrics to this song were actually taken from a 17th century poem by Thomas Dekker. But the music was composed by Paul McCartney.

#15 "Carry That Weight"

The chorus of this song features all four Beatles. One part of the song references the melody/lyrics from "You Never Give Me Your Money."

#16 "The End"

Features a drum solo by Ringo Starr (the only drum solo on any Beatles song) and short lead guitar solos by McCartney, Harrison, and Lennon - one after the other, in that order. They go through that sequence twice before the final "And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make."

#17 "Her Majesty"

This 23 second acoustic guitar ditty by Paul McCartney was originally intended to go between "Mean Mr. Mustard" & "Polythene Pam" but they had decided to leave it off the album. It was actually tacked on to the album at the end by sound engineer by mistake, but The Beatles decided they liked the mistake and left it on the album."

I tend to laugh at how other people's minds work. I for example find no humor in reading about the details behind a band's songs...yet laugh out loud whilst scanning through peer reviews in science journals...and Amazon.com reviews as well.

p.s. Actualy this made me laugh: "It really features some of The Beatles most interesting innovative work musically.
