What?.. Music Can Hurt You?..NAH....NO WAY

see photo credit
Look what I found on BBC NEWS today. This IS just RIDICULOUS...'I' have listened to more music than those 'doctors' or 'the World Health Organization' can shake a stick at...AND just look at me , will ya?,...O.K, O.K. let's find another example. And, while I'm looking for another example,.... let's all have a little laugh and concider what 'they' have to say.
Well, first's a quote..." People should listen to music for no more than one hour a day to protect their hearing, the World Health Organization suggests.?: ' Haha....just as 'I' thought....they 'suggest' this. Is it true or not guys'. Come right out AND spill the beans...O.K., O.K. let's see...then it says, AND I quote again..." It says 1.1 billion teenagers and young adults are at risk of permanently damaging their hearing by listening to "too much, too loudly".
It said audio players, concerts and bars were posing a "serious threat"....Well, 'as almost a musician 'I' [of course, Jan] say 'What the ??....EVERYBODY KNOWS that music is meant to be LOUD...the louder, the better...ain't it? 'huh'? AND, There's no such thing as too much music. says 'it's only a 'risk'...nothing we have to really worry about at all.. There's so many other reasons for having wax or beans or something in your ears OR like you're paying attention to something else...yea, like what kinda music is it anyway? It's some good music or not? Is it music that's not worth listening to, that's all.  Glad I could straighten this out for everyone....'huh'...what did you say? Jan

WOW...Hey, Glasses..Way Cool Dude....Let's Party Hardy Tonight O.K?

by George Takei.
This is just an amazing photo that's all...Just reminding me once again just how much fun..a little music and some really cool stuff adds to every party, special event or even just sitting around the house looking good.
You know those 'party' glasses look mighty familiar to me. I know my mom bought me a pair almost exactly like these but, of course, with blue glitter on the very blue horn-rim frames way back in 1957. She said it made my blue eyes....look even BLUER. WOW...Every girl or guy even wants glasses like THAT.  I thought. So, I wore those  'cool' blue-sparkly'  horn-rimmed glasses for several years without complaint, thinking I was IT.. Thanks a lot Mom. You helped make me who I am today. Jan
I found this photo on FACEBOOK this morning from George Takei.
Here's a video about horn rim glasses. This was the first music I remember making wearing glasses O.K.This video is called 'The Girl With The Horn Rimmed Glasses' from TheGoodlucks. This is what the page says: " Published onNov 20, 2012
A goofy little song, recorded in 1965 -- performed here on the '60s TV show "Shindig", by Carole Shelyne, who was a featured dancer on the show. Carole stood out among the other dance performers on "Shindig" because of her oversized glasses, which led to much popularity and fan mail, and eventually, this novelty song, She appeared on numerous TV shows of the 1960s. Carole now works under the name Carolyne Barry as a successful casting director and acting coach. Her long and interesting career in the entertainment business can be viewed here: . For anyone interested, she has a website" Jan

ETTA JAMES, by Photo by YGX cc 
This is an interesting idea...I think it's true....Music helps memory. Look at this explains it all...When memory misses a beat, music can offer dementia patients new meanin,   a YOUTUBE video. ...I found this at PBS NEWSHOUR. Check it out.. This was interesting to me 'cause Steve's mom always responded to music AND, I've noticed music just helps everything go better...lotsa times I remember info. on commercials etc. from childhood, that I've have not heard for decades...I remember phone numbers  and weird things like that. Bet, you do too, if you think about it. Here's some links to some of MY stories about the brain and music. HERE,  HERE [about our personnel journey with dememtia ]and .HERE [about Etta James and dementia]. Jan
