A BBHQ Insta-Quote:

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by BBHQ
healthy child, a garden patch, or with redeemed social condition;to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.    ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

BBHQ Monday Morning Upper.

No matter where you are in the boomer age-range, you should remember “The Duke of Earl.” It was a hit 3 times. And it is still a hit today!

Today we offer "then and now" portions of this great song.

And now... a word from our sponsor:

This Week with the Chicowitz

Under the Knife – Part 1

I take a jaundiced view toward any plastic surgery. I always thought that if I were a female and were not particularly.... well-endowed, I would focus on my personality or my singing talents. I would never be so shallow as to consider “breast augmentation” surgery.

At five-foot seven inches I have always considered my only physical shortcoming to be my height... actually, my lack thereof. Fortunately the plastic surgeons have never come up with a “height job,” or I might have had to put my moral stand to the test long ago.

I Remember... October 5...

I remember October 5, 1962... but only very vaguely. On that date, the Beatles -- remember them? -- released their first single, "Love Me Do."

Also on October 5... but in 1947, President Harry Truman delivered the first televised address from the White House to the country. I'm old. But no, I do not remember that.

The BBHQ Trivia Teaser
 
Here are three questions from the BBHQ cloud:

1. First, our current events question:
Despite a significant, self-inflicted verbal faux pas last week, the likely successor to John Boehner as Speaker of the House is which of the following?
    Trey Gowdy
    Paul Ryan
    Kevin McCarthy
    Jason Chaffetz
    Nancy Pelosi
    Mitch McConnell
    Tom Brady
    Lena Dunham
    The real killer of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman

2. From a classic Moody Blues song:
      I'm just a in a rock-n-roll band.

3. This'll test you: We all know the first line of the lead song in "The Music Man":
     76 trombones in the big parade
But what about the next line? Fill in the missing word:
     with 110 close at hand

There are no prizes here... it's just for fun.

Members can play all of our trivia games in The BBHQ Trivia Library.

The BBHQ Joke of the Week

We call this one "The Cruel Truth about Fishing."

Give a man a fish and he will eat all day.

Teach a man to fish and he will go out and buy expensive fishing equipment, stupid-looking clothes, a sports utility vehicle, travel 1000 miles to the "hottest" fishing spot and stand waist-deep in cold water so he can try to outsmart a fish.

Average cost per fish: $395.68


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