or even 300 million albums worldwide.


Stairway to Heaven (click graphic)

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
When she gets there she knows if the stores are all closed
[on live versions this is usually: ... if the stars are all closed]
With a word she can get what she came for
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a sign on the wall, but she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings
In a tree by the brook there's a songbird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven
Ooh, it makes me wonder
Ooh, it makes me wonder

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west
And my spirit is crying for leaving
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those who standing looking
Ooh, it makes me wonder
Ooh, really makes me wonder

And it's whispered that soon, if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now
It's just a spring clean for the May Queen
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on
And it makes me wonder

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know
The piper's calling you to join him
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow? and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind?

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll

And she's buying a stairway to heaven

Their untitled fourth album, which features the track "Stairway to Heaven", is among the most popular and influential works in rock music, and it cemented the status of the group as "superstars".

Led Zeppelin disbanded following Bonham's sudden death in 1980.

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995,

My red shirt is hanging on the doorknob...ready for morning.

A short day for me...I have a roofer coming to check out the attic insulation, any insulation that should be on the vents, see where the water is getting into the sun tunnel, etc, etc. Then I call a guy, at 8am, who was recommended to maybe redo the front stairs to the porch....they are in horrible shape. I’m hoping he can come, too, as I will already be home.

The handyman is coming Monday to disconnect the old dishwasher and get it out onto the deck. The new will be delivered Wednesday and be installed whenever our inspector can do it, between jobs he is already on.

We got close to the century mark here today. Down in the mid 80's now. Glad our A/C works - I don't do tropical temps well. I noticed on my phone that you were having rather high temps this afternoon. You were only a few degrees lower than Nairobi. :)

Yes, Nairobi! My daughter's mission is taking place about 25 miles outside of Nairobi, hence, I keep track of the weather there on my phone. :)

TATTOO
(Click)


Must retire – the 0500 0430 Reveille approaches relentlessly. Our Taskmasters vex us with an ever-increasing burden of work. They have sequestered us in a remote chamber known only as “The Land of the Lost”, which bears a banner over the lintel stating:

“ABANDON ALL HOPE, YE WHO ENTER HERE!”

They stand and mutely watch over us as we toil hour upon hour without respite.

The Bugler, their minion, his grim visage replete with an evil sneer, already mounts the parapet.

If I can escape their iron grip, I’ll chat with you all on the morrow. I can say no more – they approach!

Do poor Tom some charity, whom the foul fiend vexes!




Good night, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America!

Godspeed our Troops around the Globe – especially those in harm’s way – by virtue of their service and sacrifice we continue to live in Freedom!
