Stay Awhile The Bells Hi all. Sorry I had to take a break from the site as my daughter was going through some turmoil and needed my attention. I hope all is well friends. I have to share an experience that was way beyond cool for me. I have recently been granted access to a local music studio that my nephewís rock band rents space in and I have been writing songs and practicing guitar up there for a couple of weeks now. Last Thursday night, I went to the studio, and was let in by my friend Tim. He was sitting with a friend, and I set off to the smoking room before I went to work. Tim and his friend come up, and we start talking. After about 10 minutes, I realize that Iíve seen Timís friend before, but couldnít place him. Then he made a comment about when he plays a certain song in concert, some people are really surprised to hear that he wrote it. The song is this one here, Stay Awhile, and the manís name is Ken Tobias. I couldnít believe it. This man had a string of Canadian hits in the mid 70s, and wrote this song that The Bells made famous. He is originally from here, but after a few years in Toronto and LA, he made the decision to come back home to live. He hung out with us all night, and was as cool as could be. A surreal moment came when sitting in Timís office, I looked across at Ken sitting on a couch and saw right above his head, a framed and signed album cover from him featuring his portrait from 1976. It was a night that I will remember for a long time. He is still very active in the local music scene here, and still performs occasionally. If we cross paths again, I must get a pic taken with him. I will post a Ken Tobias video later on, but I always loved this song. Very pretty melody. Thanks for letting me share a cool memory for me friends.

Jayne Mansfield on Whats My Line 1966 The one and only Jayne Mansfield appears as a mystery challenger on What's My Line in 1966. Jayne was supposed to have an IQ bordering on the genius level. If that were true she played the air-headed blonde role quite well.

Suzanne Lenglen France's Suzanne Lenglen was pretty much invincible in women's tennis in the 1920s, losing only one match of significance in singles from 1914 through 1926. She ruled the sport when the major tournaments were amatuer events only. This photo of Lenglen was taken at the 1920 Olympic Games in Antwerp, Belgium. Considered a sex symbol in her heyday, Lenglen turned professional after 1926 and played a series of exhibition matches in the United States that didn't draw very good crowds because Lenglen so outclassed her competition. She died of leukemia in 1938 when she was only 39 years old.

Great Act of Sportsmanship You'll want to watch this clip from ESPN. It's about six minutes long but, believe me, it's worth it! This is one of the finest examples of sportsmanship you will ever see. It involves two women's collegiate softball teams and an injured player named Sara Tucholsky.

Clocks The only reason I've put this one up, is it's my favourite ring-tone on my phone. When I hear this I know someone I love very much is calling.
