A BBHQ Insta-Quote:

In a completely rational society, the best of us would be teachers and the rest of us would have to settle for something else.

Links here are good only for the week of May 1. After that... is anybody's guess.

From our “When the Music Was Fun” collection, this silly little song was a hit in 1968, and many times afterwards. This is the Muppets' version. It's just pure, delightful silliness.

Boomer Retirement, Part 3:
Do Not Go Gentle

Retirement — the so-called “golden age of life” — is, too often, a death sentence. Sitting on the porch in a rocking chair might have been an acceptable way for our great-grandparents to live the last 2-3 years of their lives. But it is no way for a boomer to retire!



I am not trying to tell you how to conduct your life. But it seems to me that the old fashioned notion of retirement — at age 65, or even 67 — represents not only a terrible waste of resources, but also a major health hazard.

Eye Remember... May 1, 1967:


It was the day that millions of boomer girls realized that they would never experience their dream of marrying "the king."



Yep; he was officially off the market. On May 1, 1968, Elvis got hitched.




And now, a word from our sponsor:

Now we know what Bill Maher was doing in the 70s:

The BBHQ Joke of the Week
We call this "Life Imitates Dilbert" -- actual company management announcements that show how "real" Dilbert can be.

1. As of tomorrow, employees will only be able to access the building using individual, photograph security cards. Pictures will be taken next Wednesday and employees will receive their cards in two weeks.

2. What I need is a list of specific unknown problems we will encounter.

3. E-mail is not to be used to pass on information or data. It should be used only for company business.

4. Doing it right is no excuse for not meeting the schedule. No one will believe you solved this problem in one day! We've been working on if for months. Now, go act busy for a few weeks and I'll let you know when it's time to tell them.

5. My boss spent the entire weekend retyping a 25 page proposal that only needed corrections. She claims the disk I gave her was damaged and she couldn't edit it. The disk I gave her was write-protected.

6. We know that communication is a problem, but the company is not going to discuss it with the employees.

7. Quote from the boss, "Teamwork is a lot of people doing what I say."

Have a great week. We'll share the fun again next Monday.
