This edition of The Week That Was is brought to you by Three Musketeers candy bar, the biggest nickel’s worth of chocolate-covered candy in America!
Those kids sure look like they’re having a great time, don’t they? Now, half of them would be playing with their phones.
First, as it’s St. Patrick’s Day, let me repeat something I said a couple of years ago:
If you’ll be going out tonight, please be careful, don’t drink and drive, don’t say “pog mo thoin” (pronounced “pog ma hon,” meaning “kiss my backside”) to anyone with a brogue (real or fake), and remember, St. Patrick used a shamrock (with three leaves) to explain the Holy Trinity to the Irish pagans, not a four-leaf clover.
I don’t know why that bothers me so, but thanks for letting me rant a little.
This past week has been a little rough, as the week after the spring time change always ends up being. Hopefully I’ll be able to pick up the pace a little and get back on track as far as scheduling things ahead of time. This is a busy time of the year for me, what with all the preparations for the A to Z Challenge and whatnot. More on that later. Here’s the summary for the week.
Last week we were asked for songs that have animals in them. Mine ws “Keep Your Eye On The Sparrow,” the theme song from the TV series Baretta.
Chris Botti, trumpeter supreme, was the featured artist.
We were to share a song by an underrated band, a song that gets on our nerves, and a song by an artist whose name starts with K. I shared Seatrain’s “13 Wuestions,” Don McLean’s “American Pie,” and Kenny Rankin’s “Haven’t We Met.”
Saw a funny fact about the seventh planet that I had to share. I’m glad some of you thought it was funny, too. The problem is always “what do you do for an encore?”
The question was to share something that made me laugh recently. I shared three things, including a Twitter thread posted by the City of Lawrence, Kansas Police Department about one of their recent calls.
We took a trip to Salt Lake City and examined the survey of March 15, 1968 for KCPX, at the time a Top 40 station.
A musical stream of consciousness this week as the prompt was “soul/sole.”
Got my battle out a little late this week: the song is the jazz standard “How High The Moon” and the contestants are June Christy and Lola Albright. Remember, you can vote in the Battle of the Bands even if you don’t have a battle of your own. The more the merrier, I say. I’ll announce the winner Friday.
Tomorrow is The Great Theme Reveal for those of us planning on doing the A to Z Challenge, which begins two weeks from tomorrow (April 1). We celebrate March birthdays on M4 tomorrow, and I came up with so many I’ll do a second one for the following Monday, which is also my birthday. Beyond that, all the regular favorites, so be sure and join us.
