Good girl. And good school.

And here's wishing you a full and quick recovery!



It is a great school -- we're blessed that we can have her attend, and thrilled with her outcomes.

The physical tumor recovery is expected to be total. As it was a Grade 3 meningioma it did have some malignant characteristics. Fortunately this type of malignancy seldom migrates from its location; the surgeon was able to remove all the visible parts of the tumor, and I'm undergoing the most "simple" form of radiation therapy to ensure any remaining malignant cells are eliminated. It's a 30 treatment process, with MRI follow up at 3 and 6 months, then annually for 4 more years to make sure there;s no reoccurrence of the tumor. I'm optimistic that all will go well - appreciate the kind wishes!!

Wow, did I just miss all this because I wasn't paying attention, or is this the first time you've mentioned it?

Unfortunately, this isn't new, but probably much more prevalent now. I attended a Catholic high school in the mid-80s and I remember my religion teacher telling me a story about a kid cheating on one of his tests. Prior to taking the test, the teacher stepped out of the class for just a few minutes. During this time, the punk kid noticed the answers to the multiple choice questions for the text on the teacher's desk (probably shouldn't have been there to tempt students, but that's another discussion). He got up, walked to the teacher's desk, picked up the answer key for the test, and tried to memorize all of the answers. After the test, one of the other students in the class told the teacher what had happened while he was briefly gone. Long story short, when the punk kids parents came in to discuss the cheating with the principle and teacher, they said their kid "inadvertently" saw the test on the teacher's desk while he was just looking for a pencil. That punk kid learned a lesson that day...lying works (he wasn't kicked out of school and was allowed to retake the test rather than getting an F) and his POS parents would support him in his lying no matter how obvious he was lying. I don't know what that punk kid did with his life, but something tells me he's no model citizen.

I'd say that he likely became a politician, a lawyer or a car salesman? :shrug:

The reason I don't have the whole series is that after Opie grew older, and after Don Knotts left the show, it just lost all its attraction for me.



:yes:

The show was no good after Barney/Don Knotts had left to do movies.

None of the color episodes were any good and not worth watching.

I HATED Warren and Howard. Both were annoying as heck, especially Warren. Howard always was a whiner/nerd and boring as heck. Goober wasn't as funny either in the color episodes.

I wanted to reach through the TV screen and punch Warren in the nose every time that he did his "Huh?" "Huh?" "Huh?" over and over again. :bang:

I remember the thing about how everyone in Mayberry was single except for Otis, and he was the town drunk.

Oh, and mjperry51, sorry to hear about your illness and hope you beat it.

I heard Rock Around The Clock in my head reading this. Best of luck to her. Maybe she can transfer to a charter school.

As an aside, Rock Around the Clock, aside from the lyrics, was a carbon copy of Hank Williams "Move It On Over".

I think it was done in the 40s.

Weird how so many of these older sitcoms had these type of undercurrents to them. In Leave it to Beaver, there was an obsession the kids had with corporal punishment, but always shown with humor, not to mention Eddie Haskells 24/7 duplicity.

Being a kid and watching these shows constantly while growing up, I do believe they made it easier for me to make sense out of Blue Velvet. I'll bet every one of those idyllic towns had a Frank Booth in their midst. Maybe even a Ben...

I never noticed (with Rock Around The Clock) that it was another 12 bar blues song, because of the lyrics, but sure is.

That is why Hank Williams III tells people that his grandfather wrote the first rock and roll song. Most of what I read on the subject credits Ike Turner for "inventing" rock and roll.

I think it is simpler to say they were both great at what they did and leave it at that, because they were.

Well sure, the chord pattern is the same. Just like a hundred thousand other blues, country, and rock songs. But if you actually perform the two songs you'll discover the time signature (i.e. the beat with the "emphasis") is different by a half-count.

The vocal patterns are similar as well.
