06/26/22 – Summer Is Here


First Day of Summer

Tuesday, June 21, 2022


So many of us are always in a rush to do this or that or get here or there.

Perhaps, we should all consider slowing down a bit and maybe we will find that we start enjoying life more.

ThIs is a very short book with a lot of intriguing photos.

If nothing else, there is a page with some excellent tips on wine drinking. 

The Art of Doing Nothing (1998)

Elvis (2022)

I saw this film last Friday and although I am an Elvis fan, I found the film’s portrayal of Elvis disappointing. The acting was very good, and not just the main characters. The Vernon and Priscilla Presley acting was spot on. The Little Richard in the movie was fantastic. But again, the story line was disappointing.


Since I start this week’s post with an Eddie Cochran Summer Time Blues (1958) song, I thought I would include something short and entertaining here.


By John Bulushi



A rhyme is a repetition of similar sounds [ ] in the final stressed syllables and any following syllables of two or more words. Most often, this kind of perfect rhyming is consciously used for a musical or aesthetic effect in the final position of lines within poems or songs.

More broadly, a rhyme may also variously refer to other types of similar sounds near the ends of two or more words. [ ] (Source: Wikipedia)


Eddie Cochran

Ray Edward Cochran (October 3, 1938 – April 17, 1960) was an American rock and roll musician. Cochran’s songs, such as “Twenty Flight Rock”, “Summertime Blues”, “C’mon Everybody” and “Somethin’ Else”, captured teenage frustration and desire in the mid-1950s and early 1960s.

He played the guitar, piano, bass, and drums. His image as a sharply dressed and attractive young man with a rebellious attitude epitomized the stance of the 1950s rocker, and in death he achieved iconic status.

Cochran died at age 21 in St Martin’s Hospital, Bath, Somerset, after a road accident in Chippenham, Wiltshire, at the end of his British tour in April 1960.

In 1987, Cochran was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. His songs have been recorded by a wide variety of recording artists. (Source: Wikipedia)



Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine

and medicine be they food.”


Here is something worth reflecting on:

“Master, how will I know if I’m making any progress?”

“You know it when: what once made you mad,

now makes you laugh.“

    • I believe the Bulushi skit was from SNL. As for the snorting, perhaps more Ray Charles than Beethoven. As always Priscilla, thank you for your comments. I look forward to them each week.

  1. The fact that you found the film ‘Elvis’ a little disappointing is worth noting. I really want to see it, so will be forewarned about expecting too much!
    And yes, the ‘Character Traits’ – Master angle is so true! I think it takes a little life experience to understand that one. The same is true of the ‘Einstein’ angle… 😉 😉

    • Thank you for commenting Carolyn and yes I would see the film once. Perhaps, I am such an Elvis fan, that may have a little to do with my disappointment, plus, the film was rather long. As for the master, if one can laugh at what made them angry; well that certainly is progress. Once again, thank you for commenting Carolyn.
