 Remembering Back When:

 

Eva Pasco

Flashback time once again I offer another reflection from friend and author, Eva Pasco. "T he handwriting on the wall clearly indicates letter writing is on the line. Handwritten love letters tucked inside hat boxes stored in an attic once served as portals to the past like peel-back Polaroids. During the Sixties, letter writing was so important our teachers taught us etiquette and layout of the "friendly letter": heading, greeting, body, closing, signature, and the optional--P.S. which most of us utilized for the fun of it." For Openers - The Letter.   Also I invite you to pick up Eva's new novel " An Enlightening Quiche."

There are three dots on every Domino's Pizza box because when founder Tom Monaghan started his chain, he planned on adding a dot with each new store. Looking back, 8,000+ stores later, it was a good idea to stop with the 3 dots, forming a simple domino.

Spotlight Artist

Chuck BerryChuck Berry is our Spotlight Artist for the month. John Lennon said, "if you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it 'Chuck Berry. He was among the first musicians to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on its opening in 1986; he was cited for having "laid the groundwork for not only a rock and roll sound but a rock and roll stance." Berry is included in several of Rolling Stone magazine's "greatest of all time" lists; he was ranked fifth on its 2004 list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll includes three of Berry's: "Johnny B. Goode", "Maybellene", and "Rock and Roll Music". Berry's "Johnny B. Goode" is the only rock-and-roll song included on the Voyager Golden Record.
