And Elsewhere In The Villages?

Well, it has become overwhelming obvious that TheVillages.com has again switched formats making it unbelievably difficult to put anything on our bucket lists (i.e., "put the red ones on your bucket list").  So I'll just have to trust in your extraordinary skills to create your own lists and keep them up-to-date as you see fit.   The link(s) below will get you to the appropriate web page.

Sunday, November 8th Schedules

https://www.thevillages.com/calendar/#

Monday, November 9th through Saturday, November 14th Schedules

https://www.thevillages.com/calendar/#

Did you notice that these are the same address?  Well, they are.  To get to next weeks schedule, you need to make sure the search criteria in the top portion of their page is set to (a) Entertainment, (b) Town Squares, and (c) Next Week.  Wow!  That sure saved me a lot of time.






"The Ballad of the Green Berets" is a patriotic song in the ballad style about the Green Berets, an elite special force in the U.S. Army. It is one of the very few songs of the 1960s to cast the military in a positive light and in 1966 it became a major hit, reaching No. 1 for five weeks on the Hot 100 and four weeks on Cashbox. It was also a crossover smash, reaching No. 1 on Billboard's Easy Listening chart and No. 2 on Billboard's Country survey.

The song was written by Robin Moore and Staff Sgt. Barry Sadler, while the latter was recuperating from a leg wound suffered as a medic in the Vietnam War. Moore also wrote a book, The Green Berets, about the force. The tune itself is borrowed from the traditional American folk song "The Butcher Boy".



DON'T FORGET THAT WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 11th IS "VETERANS DAY" AND IT'S A FLAG DAY.
