let’s go to the mountain…

From Isaiah 2:  The Mountain of the Lord

 1 This is what Isaiah son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem: 2 In the last days
       the mountain of the LORD's temple will be established
       as chief among the mountains;
       it will be raised above the hills,
       and all nations will stream to it.

 3 Many peoples will come and say,
       "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
       to the house of the God of Jacob.
       He will teach us his ways,
       so that we may walk in his paths."
       The law will go out from Zion,
       the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

 4 He will judge between the nations
       and will settle disputes for many peoples.
       They will beat their swords into plowshares
       and their spears into pruning hooks.
       Nation will not take up sword against nation,
       nor will they train for war anymore.

 5 Come, O house of Jacob,
       let us walk in the light of the LORD.


FRIENDS……..Anybody out there know who Buzzy Linhart is??


by Mark Klingman and Buzzy Linhart

And I am all alone.
There is no one here beside me.
And my problems have all gone.
There is no one to deride me.

But you got to have friends.
The feeling's oh so strong.
You got to have friends
to make that day last long.

I had some firends but they're gone,
somethin' came and took them away.
And from the dusk 'til the dawn
here is where I'll stay.

Standing at the end of the road, boys,
waiting for my new friends to come.
I don't care if I'm hungry or poor,
I'm gonna get me some of them.

It’s a Spring Thing…where have I seen that???

31hafner.jpgWell you know it occurred to me and isn't it ironic?  The Tribe opens the new season against the team that ended theirs last fall.  The Wahoos open Sunday night (what time?) on ESPN2 vs the World Champion (ugh) Chicago White Sox.  The Sox and the Boys from Cleveland have been bitter rivals for as long as I can remember, back to that pennant race in 1959 that went down to the wire when the Go Go Sox prevailed but lost in the World Series. 

 The rivalry was immortalized in the classic movie "Major League".  I love that movie.  I went to see it in the theater and wept openly and bitterly with joy as the Tribe emerged victorious.  I just don't understand why everyone else was laughing!! Oh well, guess you had to be from Cleveland. 

 But I digress!!  Sunday night the new season begins, the Sox will get their rings and revenge will be ours!! The Tribe will spoil the party with a win, unlike last seasons home opener that went to the Sox 1-0.  Just remember games on April 2 are just as important as ones on Oct 1.  

 Put October 23 on your calendar as the World Series will begin in Cleveland.

Well I must be off.  I declare you blessed today above and beyond all measure…

Do you like toast?

toastAll around the country and coast to coast
People always say, "what do you like most?"
I don’t want to brag, I don’t want to boast
I always tell ‘em, "I like toast."
I get up in the morning ‘bout six A.M.
Have a little jelly, have a little jam
Take a piece of bread, put it in the slot
Push down the lever and the wires get hot, get toast.
Now, there’s no secret to toasty perfection
There’s a dial on the side and you make your selection
Push to the dark or the light and then
If it pops too soon, press down again,
make toast.
When the first caveman drove in from the drags
Didn’t know what would go with the bacon and the eggs
Must have met a genius, got it in his head
Plug the toaster in the wall, buy a bag of bread, make toast.
Oui Monsieur, bonjour coquette,
Une croissant? Et vous auvent?
Maurice Chevalier, Eiffel Tower,
Oui Marie, baguette, bonsoir!
