Problems, problems, problems!

Last week's edition was a slow-churning disaster.  Trying to get this page (page 0) to come up seemed to be destined to "not" happen.  But without it, there was nothing to point to page 1 (2018-05-13).  What a dilemma! [Something about that word "dilemma" that just doesn't look right - and I even went over to MicroSoft Word and checked its spelling.  Oh, well!]

And this week hasn't been any easier.  I've been up since about 5:00 a.m. (it's now 2:00 p.m.) and I've got transfer problems.  Seems I can't cut and paste without re-typing in entire pages.  Maybe it's time to get a new laptop.  Or maybe just re-install Windows 10.  And now, I'm hearing a double (delayed) set of music coming on each page.  Will it ever end.

This Weeks Chronicle


So did you celebrate Mother's Day (last Sunday, May 13th).  Well, this week is full of coincidences for our household.  This is both my mother's birthday and my father's birthday.  The were born in 1921 and 1911, respectfully.  That would have made them 97 and 107 years-old.  Ouch!  

You may have noticed that their birthdays were exactly 10 years apart.  How's that for a coincidence.

Looking ahead (page 4), it appears that nothing of great importance happened on either May 20, 1911 nor May 20, 1921.  But is you look at other significant births on May 20, you'll see that Joe Cocker, Cher, Tony Stewart (NASCAR) and Ron Reagan (son of President Ronald Reagan) were also born on that day.  So I guess, they were in good company.

"This One's for You" is the title track from the 1976 album by Barry Manilow with words and music by Manilow and Marty Panzer. "This One's for You" peaked at number twenty-nine on the Billboard Hot 100, and it was Manilow's fifth number one on the Easy Listening chart, reaching the top position for one week in November 1976. "This One's for You" was followed by the single, "Weekend in New England". The song was covered by Shirley Bassey on her 1977 album titled, "You Take My Heart Away", and Teddy Pendergrass for his 1982 album, "This One's For You." An early version of the song appears on Manilow's compilation box set, The Complete Collection and Then Some....

Chicago radio superstation WLS, which gave the song much airplay, ranked "This One's For You" as the 66th most popular hit of 1976. It reached as high as number seven on their survey of November 6, 1976.
