celebration week..day four
dt floated down..said..
wes is monitoring the survey and we are getting a record turn out so dont miss out on the fun..take the anonymous survey..it will be open until wednesday morning..just click on the link and answer a few questions..
now..we have had a lot of fun with the foibles of the power hungry in wonderland..but the blog isnt always pointing out the negative..
your right..we have tried to appropriately celebrate most of the major holidays and our olympic coverage was a lot of fun..
you waiting for the luge coverage during the summer olympics..
people probably have forgotten how the blog has honored the passing of some of our residents..
the one we got the most response from was the passing of a world war ii veteran..here is that tribute..
anyway..a small shakesperean tribute from henry v .. while i go have a vodka martini in his memory..
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.
another tribute we received a lot of positive response was..
I’ll bury thee in a triumphant grave;
A grave? O no! a lantern, slaughter’d youth,
For here lies Juliet, and her beauty makes
This vault a feasting presence full of light.
Romeo and Juliet
Act 5. Scene III
and for one of our residents who loved to play the piano..
kelsey grammer said it best..
it was longfellow who said..
When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men.
those were all nice tributes and those were all good friends that we have lost..
yes they were and we will always miss them..
speaking of positive responses..and since we are trying to replay some of the past music videos this week..what was the most popular music video from the past three years..
probably lyin eyes by the eagles..
why do you think..
well besides being a great song..lying..people dont like to be lied to.. and the lyrics..
dont forget the survey..
the monkey will be reporting the results tomorrow..
lilly..dt and wes
