Smokey Robinson had been around a while, and in 1963 the team of Holland, Dozier and Holland gave him a Top 10 hit.

How are you doing this evening? A little warm, isn't it?

Welcome To All Who Enter This Canteen, To Our Serving Military, To Our Veterans, To All Military Families, To Our FRiends and To Our Allies!





Missing Man Setting

“The Empty Chair”

By Captain Carroll “Lex” Lefon, USN (ret), on December 21st, 2004

“In the wardroom onboard the aircraft carrier from which I recently debarked was a small, round table, with single chair. No one ever sat there, and the reasons, both for the table being there, and for the fact that the chair was always empty, will tell the reader a little bit about who we are as a culture.The wardroom, of course, is where the officers will dine; morning, noon and evening. It is not only a place to eat – it is also a kind of oasis from the sometimes dreary, often difficult exigencies of the service. A place of social discourse, of momentary relief from the burdens of the day. The only things explicitly forbidden by inviolable tradition in the wardroom are the wearing of a cover or sword by an officer not actually on watch, or conversation which touches upon politics or religion. But aboard ships which observe the custom, another implicit taboo concerns the empty chair: No matter how crowded the room, no matter who is waiting to be seated, that chair is never moved, never taken.

The table is by the main entrance to the wardroom. You will see it when you enter, and you will see it when you leave. It draws your eyes because it is meant to. And because it draws your eyes it draws your thoughts. And though it will be there every day for as long as you are at sea, you will look at it every time and your eyes will momentarily grow distant as you think for a moment. As you quietly give thanks.

As you remember.

The small, round table is covered with a white linen tablecloth. A single place setting rests there, of fine bone china. A wineglass stands upon the table, inverted, empty. On the dinner plate is a pinch of salt. On the bread plate is a slice of lemon. Besides the plate lies a bible. There is a small vase with a single red rose upon the table. Around the vase is wound a yellow ribbon. There is the empty chair.

We will remember because over the course of our careers, we will have had the opportunity to enjoy many a formal evening of dinner and dancing in the fine company of those with whom we have the honor to serve, and their lovely ladies. And as the night wears on, our faces will in time become flushed with pleasure of each other’s company, with the exertions on the dance floor, with the effects of our libations. But while the feast is still at its best, order will be called to the room – we will be asked to raise our glasses to the empty table, and we will be asked to remember:

The table is round to show our everlasting concern for those who are missing. The single setting reminds us that every one of them went to their fates alone, that every life was unique.

The tablecloth is white symbolizing the purity of their motives when they answered the call to duty.

The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing, and their loved ones who kept the faith.

The yellow ribbon around the vase symbolizes our continued determination to remember them.

The slice of lemon reminds us of the bitterness of their fate.
The salt symbolizes the tears shed by those who loved them.
The bible represents the faith that sustained them.
The glass is inverted — they cannot share in the toast.
The chair is empty — they are not here. They are missing.

And we will remember, and we will raise our glasses to those who went before us, and who gave all that they had for us. And a part of the flush in our faces will pale as we remember that nothing worth having ever came without a cost. We will remember that many of our brothers and sisters have paid that cost in blood. We will remember that the reckoning is not over.

We many of us will settle with our families into our holiday season, our Christmas season for those who celebrate it, content in our fortune and prosperity. We will meet old friends with smiles and laughter. We will meet our members of our family with hugs. We will eat well, and exchange gifts and raise our glasses to the year passed in gratitude, and to the year to come with hope. We will sleep the sleep of the protected, secure in our homes, secure in our homeland.

But for many families, there will be an empty chair at the table this year. A place that is not filled.

We should remember.”

Your enchilada was yummy!
And so was your puffy taco, rice and beans!
....and salsa and chips! :)

The rain was heavenly! We got nearly 3 inches!
I'm greedy enough to hope there is more to come! LOL!
Glad you got some, too.
It makes all the difference!

The Primettes had been discovered by Berry Gordy, and after going through etiquette school, they were turned over to Holland, Dozier and Holland in 1963. They didn’t make the Top 10 that year, but a song by H-D-H got them on the charts. This song shows some real imagination and tells a story. The guys quickly discovered how to showcase Diana Ross’ high soprano.

Good evening, Connie! Good evening, all!

A contribution to the music, if I can take the room down for a moment.
I was listening to Ceol na nGael, the Irish music program on WFUV, last Sunday, and I was listening to a song that I'm sure that I've heard a few times before, but somehow, this seemed to be the first time I actually listened closed enough to hear the words.... I had to stop grading papers for a few minutes.

I found a version on youtube: John McDermott - The Old Man

The Grey-Haired Brigade



They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some cases dinosaurs. Some of us are "Baby Boomers" getting ready to retire. Others have been retired for some time. We walk a little slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were. We have worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God and grown old together. Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the hill, and that is probably true. But before writing us off completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.

In school we studied English, history, math, and science which enabled us to lead America into the technological age. Most of us remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience. We remember the days of telephone party-lines, 25 cent gasoline, and milk and ice being delivered to our homes. For those of you who don't know what an icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators. A few even remember when cars were started with a crank. Yes, we lived those days.

We are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many. But there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing us off. We won World War II, fought in Korea and Viet Nam . We can quote The Pledge of Allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so. We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield. We didn't fight for the Socialist States of America , we fought for the "Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave." We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag. We know the words to the Star Spangled Banner, America, and America the Beautiful by heart, and you may even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing. We have lived what many of you have only read about in history books and we feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America.

Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and nobody is going to take it away from us. We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep. There are those who want to destroy this land we love but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent.

It was mostly the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the Democratic Congress. You fell for the "Hope and Change" which in reality was nothing but "Hype and Lies." You have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face, and have found you don't like it after all. You make a lot of noise, but most are all too interested in their careers or "Climbing the Social Ladder" to be involved in such mundane things as patriotism and voting. Many of those who fell for the "Great Lie" in 2008 are now having buyer's remorse. With all the education we gave you, you didn't have sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank the 'Kool-Aid.' Now you're paying the price and complaining about it. No jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom. This is what you voted for and this is what you got. We entrusted you with the Torch of Liberty and you traded it for a paycheck and a fancy house.

Well, don't worry youngsters, the Grey-Haired Brigade is here, and in 2012 we are going to take back our nation. We may drive a little slower than you would like but we get where we're going, and in 2012 we're going to the polls by the millions. This land does not belong to the man in the White House nor to the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. It belongs to "We the People" and "We the People" plan to reclaim our land and our freedom. We hope this time you will do a better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren. So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, Stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor our country, and thank God for the old geezers of the "Grey-Haired Brigade."

Author, Anon. Grey-Haired Brigade Member

Footnote:

This is spot on. I am another Gray-Haired Geezer signing on. I will circulate this to other Gray-Haired Geezers all over this once great county. Can you feel the ground shaking??? It's not an earthquake, it is a STAMPEDE.

"In God We Trust"



Happy moments, praise God. Difficult moments, seek God. Quiet moments, worship God. Painful moments, trust God. Every moment, thank God.

The year 1964 was the year that Holland, Dozier and Holland hit it big. This was one career not upended by the British Invasion. They started the year with a chart entry for Marvin Gaye.

Marvin Gaye: “Wonderful One”

At the end of ‘64, they gave Gaye one of those great songs that gets recorded by generations of artists.

Marvin Gaye: “How Sweet it Is”

In 1964, the team of Holland, Dozier and Holland rang the cash register with the Supremes as the guys found a groove that sold records and made the girls into stars. This first song was the biggest hit Motown had come up with so far.

The Supremes: “Where Did Our Love Go”

The tendency to milk the same idea produced another huge hit for the girls and their song writing team.

The Supremes: “Baby Love”

By the end of ’64, the guys had decided to try something a little different with the girls, and it turned out to be a real gem.

The Supremes: “Come See About Me”

Motown needed male groups, and one such group was dropped into the lap of Holland, Dozier and Holland in 1964. Levi Stubbs had a magnificent set of pipes. Who could forget him as the voice of Audrey II in “The Little Shop of Horrors”? This song from the musical isn’t H-D-H, but it really shows off Stubbs’ chops.

Levi Stubbs & Rick Moranis: “Feed Me, Seymour”

H-D-H came up with a wonderful song that barely missed the Top10. It has a great opening that just grabs your attention. I love the way they ratchet up the tension at 2:07 and the way they release it.

The Four Tops: “Baby I Need Your Loving”

The year 1965 was a banner year for Holland, Dozier and Holland. The Supremes provided most of the cash for Gordy and the guys. This song ended up being iconic with it’s easy movement from A minor to C Major.

The Supremes: “Stop! In the Name of Love”

Then the guys milked the same idea but almost made it sound fresh.

The Supremes: “Back in My Arms Again”

This time, the repetitive nature of what the guys were doing caused this song to miss the Top 10. There were probably sleepless nights at Hitsville USA as the guys were hurting the label’s top act.

The Supremes: “Nothing but Heartaches”

Then the guys changed pace and tried something different for the girls, and it paid off. Watch how they use key changes (modulations) to ratchet up the tension.

The Supremes: “I Hear a Symphony”
