BBHQ Monday Morning Upper.
David Seville landed a spot on Ed Sullivan's show with a novelty song in
1958. The presentation is particularly... odd. And the technical quality
is poor — even for 1958. Still... it worked.
We all remember "The Witch Doctor." But few boomers remember Seville's
appearance on the Ed Sullivan show.
This is pure, simple fun — it’s what the BBHQ Monday Morning
Upper is all about.
The Beach Boys are Coming!
Yep; half a century later, the "boys" are still doin' it... and still on

It's a wonderful thing!
There is a movie about Brian Wilson coming out on June 5. It's called
"Love and Mercy." Looks to be pretty good.
This Week with the Chicowitz
Don’t Give Up; Don’t Give In
The late Louis Zamperini, the subject of the recent movie,
“Unbroken,” was an amazing man. Maybe we can’t all be
as accomplished as was Louis. But in his last years, he offered some great
advice which should be useful to everyone.
Much of his material is not new. But that it comes from a man as heroic
as Louis Zamperini makes it worth serious contemplation.
Please take a few moments to look over and think about these topics.
Remember, these come from a guy who was stranded on a rubber raft in the
Pacific for 47 days and then brutally tortured in a Japanese prison camp
for two years.
Run for Your Life
The family rules
Anyone can turn their life around
The difference between attention and recognition is self-esteem
It’s not how you win it’s how you lose
Don’t Give Up, Don’t Give In
You are the content of your character
Never let anyone destroy your dignity
Hate is a personal decision
Attitude is Everything
You must have hope
Don’t ask why; ask what’s next
You choose how to view your fate
What I’ve Learned
Learn to adapt
Commitment and perseverance payoff
You’re only as old as you feel
If everyone took these lessons to heart... no, if even a
third of the people did, this would be an infinitely better world. This
is what they should be teaching in schools today. But they are not. So it
is up to the adults in the community to do so.
The adults — that’s us now.
