Ginger Rogers Dances Salsa at 92 Years Old

O.K...I'm gonna keep practicing, well ,...we BOTH will. BARTLETT and ROSE do it again..yeah! Found this on elbinata on YOUTUBE HERE...So, entertaining and toes are tapping.. Jan
This is what it says:" Uploaded on Jan 21, 2011 Ginger Rogers at 92 years old, dancing with her 29 year old great-grandson. The first minute or so is a bit of a slow intro.. but stick it out, she is incredible. Most of us would love to be able to move like this at 22, let alone 92! (You do have to wonder whether she has bionic "knees).

DAVID BOWIE...To Ground Control

On January 8th, my 'Starman' turned 65. I've always been amazed by this guy, alien?...what an out-of-the-box showman, an original. DAVID BOWIE's always entertaining to me. Steve will check him out, and then will give his opinion. 'He's entertaining and authetic.' says Steve
It must be the artist in me. David Bowie's an unique whole package...I love the visual effects to his music...all the colors, costumes, make up, the mystery...I'm not sure, what I'll see or who I'll see when I see him. 'What's next?... I wonder... Yes, it's the artist in me. He has lots charisma, or is it courage? He's sometimes just plain shocking O.K?. Jan
Here's a video featuring, of course, DAVID BOWIE, from emimusic on YOUTUBE.. It's called 'ZIGGY STARDUST'. This is  what the video page says: " Uploaded on Feb 26, 2009

Oreos...Oreos: Here, There AND Everywhere

by mihoda cc
'E-U-R-I-K-A'.. Now I've found it ...a real answer...A really cool fancy-dancy OREO Cookie Separating Machine...With a TRAINED Professional from the Famous MAD DOG GARAGE in Portland, Oregon who goes with it. He's a real Physicist too. Cool,  I want one of these machines..O.K, here gos....'Steve? know, Sweetheart how,...I..ah, like... Oreo 'Creme' don't you?'... [pause] yea...that'll work,..that's how I'll start it....
Now, back to my story...When, I first saw this on GIZMOTO.COM. I just knew that it was my dream come true... I can sure use one of these inventions...See, I'm a 'Creme' person when it comes to Oreos...and, as we all know we're all either one or the other, come on fess up...'Creme' or 'Cookie'?... And, ALL that licking can be very difficult, a real hardship, cause sometimes, more often than I like to admit, I get a bit of cookie in my mouth...YUK!. Jan
Here's a video from MAD DOG GARAGE in Portland, where this all began, from Oreo. It's called OREO SEPARATOR MACHINE #1-CREATOR: PHYSICIST DAVID NEEVEL     and HERE.

Published on Feb 26, 2013
It's a basic human desire to separate an OREO cookie. Humans love either cookie or creme. And sometimes a man just needs to invent a machine to do the hard work of separating the two. Today, that man is physicist and cookie-part preferrer David Neevel. Watch him operate the machine he created that separates OREO cookies.

'Today Is Your Birthday, We're Gonna Have A Good Time' GEORGE HARRISON

by FaceMePLS cc
Well, today is The Beatle's guitarist, GEORGE HARRISON's Birthday. He was born on Feb. 25th, 1943. He was my favorite of all the Beatles. George was also a singer and song writer, even though most of the Beatle's tunes were recognized as written by only JOHN LENNON and PAUL McCARTNEY.
He was the cutest, and kinda quiet, I thought, as a girl.
I remember, he was interested in East Indian religions and meditation and KRISHNA. He wrote [thanks thebeatlessound1] 'My Sweet Lord' in 1976, that song reminds me of that period of his life. He also introduced the rest of the Beatles, that's John, Paul and Ringo as well as many western youth to Eastern ideas, and culture in the 60s and 70s. 
Harrison was also active in social changes, and one of the first to use concerts and music to raise funds for making changes. With RAVI SHANKAR, he created the hunger awareness benefit for starving people in Bangladesh, shown in the video 'Concert for Bangladesh' 1971, posted byvoodoochains on YOUTUBE.. IThanks..Jan
But, I also read that George Harrison's increasing need to use his music for social changes and his increasing lists of songs, without being equally recognized along with Lennon and McCartney, may have contributed to the Beatles breakup in 1970. BUMMER. 
But, today let's celebrate a great musician's birthday...O.K?
The Beatle's wrote 'Beatle's Birthday Song' found posted on patokaman. I could not find a copy with all the Beatles performing it....'Happy Birthday, George' Jan 

Uploaded on Apr 28, 2008

"Birthday" is a song written by John Lennon--Paul McCartney and performed by The Beatles on their 1968 double album ...The Beatles .....commonly known as "The White Album"
Preformed here live by former BEATLE.....Sir Paul McCartney With
Rusty Anderson - Lead Guitar
Abe Laboriel Jr. - Drums
Paul "Wix" Wickens - Key board
Brian Ray - Rhythm guitar/bass

What A Voice For A Small Little Lady...BRENDA LEE

by pzed cc
When I  found this tune on YOUTUBE, BRENDA LEE singing 'I'm Sorry' that was posted by PeterRabbit59 , it brought back memories of 1960 listening to our radio in the living room. I was an awkward, freckled, redheaded, 10 year old but was dancing and laughing with my mom and sister without a care in the world. My mom was smiling and singing loudly, thinking she sounded just like Brenda Lee. Brenda's songs along with [ thanks UschisChannel2 ]... 'North To Alaska' by Johnny Horton were the songs we all loved at our house and sang then, back then when I was a girl. puberty had not yet not shown itself...there was no signs yet the hippie, that I would become in the late '60's, that my folks never really understood. This I remember as a time of innocence for me.
So, Let's all sing...all together now with Brenda Lee. O.K? Ready, get set go.... Jan
Dedicated to Mom.

LES PAUL. Guitarist Extraordinaire And Creator Of The Solid Body Guitar.

by media_media_biz cc
LES PAUL GUITARIST EXTRAORDINAIRE, found at bathsideboy...reminded me what a great guitarist LES PAUL was. See video below. Enjoy, I'll finish this story tomorrow. O.K?. Jan
O.K. I'm back,... when I first met my bassman in 1996. I'd never heard of 'Les Paul' or a 'Les Paul'. 'What or Who was that?'  But, it wasn't long after I started hanging 'round BARTLETT and his musician friends, that I noticed that whenever the words' Les Paul' came up in conversations, it was with a kind of hushful reverence, that it caught my 'ear'. So, I checked it all out.
I found out that a 'LES PAUL' was a man, but, not just a man, he was a T.V. personality with his wife MARY FORD, an awesome jazz, blues and country musician, as well as a genius musical inventor of many  things used today in recording etc., and he invented of one of my favorite things.... he is known as one of the 'creators' of rock and roll, by creating the first solid body guitar.  cool.. His real name was 'Lester William Polsfuss'.... He's known as just Les Paul, and 'Les Paul's' are also  known as guitars.....and, an authentic 1950's Les Paul solid body guitar is one of  most desirable and expensive electric guitars in the world today. Well, I guess, it's valued at between $US 200,000 and $US 750,000. WOW! There were only 17,000 of them made between 1958 and 1960. O.K. now I see why.
BUT, there's even more... with more looking, I found out there's really two [2] 'Les Paul' solid body guitars around...the second one being the LES PAUL GIBSON. Les Paul was hired to endorse Gibson's  new 'Les Paul Gibson model' in 1952 by Gibson Guitar Corporation president, TED McCARTHY. The Les Paul Gibson' has become one of the best known electric guitar types ever, along with the FENDER TELECASTER and STRADOCASTER.  Yea.. These do not cost $200,000..Lucky for all those great guitarists who love their Les Paul. The Gibson guys have created many models over the years with the Les Paul Gibson Solid Body Electric Bass being created in the late '60's.
 But, guess what? before 1952..yes,.about 1945, Les Paul had originally contacted Ted McCarthy about his new solid body guitar type.  But, this new design was rejected by those Gibson folks....'Oh well...maybe next time' sigh..... [Jan].
The '52 'Les Paul Gibson' was made very popular by musicians like... ERIC CLAPTON, KEITH RICHARDS, and others with the start of rock and roll and their use of this guitar type. Thanks to all those guys. The rest is history. Now, everyone wants one. Sounds beautiful, don't they? Jan.

 by Piano Piano! CC
K.D.
