His grandmother was a Palin

Who thought that he’d go sailin

He’d take a Tripp, upon a ship, and maybe he’d be whalen

But baker, Quaker, candlestick maker,  doctor,  lawyer,  Van Halen ?

A  rattle  he’ll  naw

Policeman  for  ma ?

Then —  bad guys  he’ll  be jailin

(the end)

Will  his  daughter catch a spy

Will she let them make her cry

If  she  hollers let her be

Said the sailor from the sea

Will she be a friend or foe

Catch a spy man by the toe

If  he  hollers let him go?

Eeeny  Meeny Mighty Moe

(the end ?)

The Favorite Star Mystique

Mel Gibson 1

Mel Gibson 2

Mel Gibson 3

“I, Renee Ashley Baker, want to meet Mel Gibson. He is my absolute favorite star. But–I’m torn and I don’t know what to say to him. (Yes, I do wear glasses)….What I mean is, I feel as though it was I, Renee Ashley Baker, who somehow–via osmosis–put Mel with “Nurse Moore”. So–I’m sad about the “marriage” break up. On the other hand he is Mel Gibson–the “sexiest man alive” Mel Gibson! So–I’m running a contest: “What Should Renee Ashley Baker Say To Mel Gibson?” Should it be–
“I’m glad you got rid of her now you and I can be together?” Or….
“What do you think you’re doing getting rid of Robin–Batman?”….

Statement 1 or Statement 2….Which should it be? Serious or hilarious. (Although something tells me Mel Gibson would laugh –out loud– if either statement came out of me) ….

The public can mail their contest votes to: “What Should She Say To Gerard?” (at rbstudios@yahoo.com)

PREVIEW: Valentine’s Day

February 7, 2008

                                        Lindt Valentine’s Day                 

                         The History of Valentine’s Day

        Valentine’s Day (also called Saint Valentine’s Day) is a holiday celebrated on February 14th.  It is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other by sending Valentine’s cards or by gifting candy or flowers.

The Name: 

      The holiday is named after ‘two’ among numerous Early Christian figures named Valentine.  One being Saint Valentine of Terni.

The Romantic Association:

     The holiday became associated with ‘romantic love’ in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer (during the High Middle Ages) when the tradition of  ‘courtly love’  flourished.   (Note: About Chaucer’s  ‘Love Birds’  I  give you  “Parlement of Foules”  by Geoffrey Chaucer….

            “For this was seynt Volantynys Day…When every byrd comyth there to choose his mate….” 

           Did you know this poem was written by Chaucer to honor the first anniversary of the engagement of King Richard II of England to Anne of Bohemia…By the way, She 14 years of age and he just 13 years of age).

The Greetings:  “When You Care Enough To Send The Very Best”  — Hallmark Cards (Since 1910, founded in Missouri)

           In modern times the holiday has become most associated with the exchange of love notes in the form of ‘valentines’.   Such ‘valentines’ have always included the ‘heart shaped outline’  and the ‘figure of the winged cupid’.  Since the mid-nineteenth century mass produced ‘greeting cards’ surpassed handwritten notes.  The U.S. Greeting Card Association estimates that approximately one billion valentines are sent each year worldwide, making the day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year (behind Christmas).  The Association estimates that women purchase approximately 85 percent of all valentines….
