Anything Goes - Anything Goes (2011)



Here in Rockland High school
they are putting on the play
Anything Goes  
by Cole Porter
I saw this on Broadway
it was fantastic The tickets were about $300 each.  
Listen up  
any one in Rockland or Camden 
should not miss seeing this for a 
meager $8.00 It is such a fun night.
The Oceanside Theatre in the Rockland
High school Nov. 10-11-17-18-19
Performances  @   2PM or  7PM
Seniors  $6.00  Adults $8.00
TREAT YOURSELF DO IT!
Here's the words
Times have changed
And we've often rewound the clock
Since the Puritans got a shock
When they landed on Plymouth Rock.
If today
Any shock they should try to stem
'Stead of landing on Plymouth Rock,
Plymouth Rock would land on them.
In olden days, a glimpse of stocking
Was looked on as something shocking.
But now, God knows,
Anything goes.

New Name though
" HE LOVES ME"
is the ole move---
In the Good Old Summertime is a 1949 Technicolor musical filmdirected by Robert Z. Leonard. It stars Judy GarlandVan Johnsonand S.Z. Sakall.
The film is a musical adaptation of the 1940 film, The Shop Around the Corner, directed by Ernst Lubitsch, and starring James Stewartand Margaret Sullavan, and written by Miklós László based on his 1937 play Parfumerie. For In the Good Old Summertime, the locale has been changed from 1930s Budapest to turn-of-the-century Chicago, but the plot remains the same.

Plot

Veronica Fisher (Judy Garland) enters Oberkugen's music shop, looking for work. Although Otto Oberkugen (S. Z. Sakall) is reluctant to take on more staff, she wins a job by persuading a wealthy matron, through her singing and musical expertise, to buy a harp at almost $25 over Oberkugen's list price. Neither she nor Andrew Larkin (Van Johnson), the shop's senior salesman, suspects that they are each other's anonymous pen pal. They bicker constantly at work although becoming increasingly attracted to each oth
Heck! everything ole is new again..

St. George Day in Tenants Harbor ,Maine









World
 record

breaking crowd just like  Trumps,
*Only kidding*
Well, Fall is here, the weather is
beautiful. The Saint George Day Parade, has passed.
Lobsterfest is over, I can drive in town now.
Been lucky this Summer have sold some art at
a store in town.  My Daughter Renee has moved
back to Boca Raton. She starts a new Design job and
sounds so happy, to be back in her element.

This April after Renee left I started volunteering at the
Catholic Church St. Bernards Soup Kitchen 2 days a week.
Get there at 7:30 Am. Trucks arrive with Fruit and veg,
bakery. I check all the stuff and bag it. Wipe the tables
for 80/90 people. That is stopping I have such skin rashes,
 it's cost me over $150 at Dr. and drug store.
I set 80 place settings. Help in Kitchen and serve lunch..
That is the worst, NO A?C. At 80 yrs old I get winded.
Leave after tables are cleared, and wiped  and chairs. The chemicals are not for me. I put in 4/5 hours there, no pay!
It is hard work, but I feel GREAT and have met so many co-workers. They are all Fine people and work hard for Humanity.
Dear God let America be UNITED again. No Matter what color you are we all bleed Red blood. I watched Opera Winfrey
on 60 Minutes, here it is if you want to see it.

We should be Progressing , not regressing.
God Bless America.
I stand up for the Flagg.

Lupines in Maine Just gorgeous!

Image result for lupines in maine
Lupines in Maine.
I picked some for table
what a mess when
they come to an end.
My drive way
this year
was gorgeous.
It's the time
of year, it's great
to be alive an
see such wonder.









Rhododendrons
I planted in 2006.



Azalea's  from red
to bright orange.






Creeping phlox is also
doing well this year.




Yellow lilies
are blooming
I noticed my
Star Gazers had been
eaten by deer. Damn!




I love the deer,
they are so
beautiful,
but boy do I
hate it when
they eat my
budding lilies.
I used Seven dust in my
 Casa Blanca lilies.
They are still there.









Mock orange smells so sweet


Yellow
Loose strife
well the Lawn guys are charging $50,00 an hour here in Maine.
Imagine that $50 an hour with no education. All they want to do
is ride the mower, some will not trim weed wack or rake or anything.  Not even owns a blower to blow the grass off  the
driveway. I asked him to use a push mower with a bad in the dog yard, said his tractor couldn't get through the gate. He said I don't push a mower.
God forbid they push a mower. How much do ya want to bet
they collect every $ from the govt they can.
 Bet they don't pay tax either. Want cash..Seems that the State
should stop the price gouging. It's a crime to charge that amount.
One guy said "It's my Big equipment"  Hellooooo,
all you need is a self prop mower. Half that big riding equipment
 gets stuck when it rains so that's an excuse not to finish cutting.
Then they leave MUD on my drive.
How much do you pay?

Baubles, Bangles and Beads










Baubles Bangles and Beads,

Just don't lose your head over them.
Here's the story. Two crooks, one Contessa de Motte were to deliver the necklace ti Marie Antionette, The woman(Contessa) stole the necklace,escaped to London, Her partner was imprisoned. Motte removed 22 Diamonds and sold them The necklace is owned by a private collector now. Poor Marie Got the Bill and the French went wild.

.





















The Cambridge,Dehli Durbar Necklace
It was made for Queen Mary. The Emeralds
belonged to her grandmother the duchess of Cambridge.
It was made for her ACCLAMATION OF INDIA.
Isn't it magnificent?

Here's another story. The Godman necklace was given to the Queen from
two elderly spinster sisters. They claimed it belonged to Empress Josephine of France.
Jewerly isn't it wonderful.
