Our classmate Joe Ribeirois in need of our prayer and thoughts as he fights his way back from some health issues.  In early February Joe had a heart attack and stents were installed to fix the issue.  Joe was on the mend until Feb 16th when he experienced a major stroke.  Again Joe is fighting back, now walking with only a nurse by his side, and his speech is improving and therapy will help in that area also.  Please take a moment and say a prayer for him and a speedy recovery.

When Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr played their first gig together in Liverpool in 1962, they never could have guessed their legacy would be imprinted in the brains of millions of people. The Beatles have had an immeasurable impact on music, thanks to their catchy melodies and universally relatable lyrics. Their songs have influenced countless pop singers, rock bands, and experimental artists, and they continue to be covered and sampled by musicians to this day.

Although many of the early Beatles songs were incredibly simple, the writing duo of Lennon and McCartney hit on all-encompassing truths about love and life. Their later albums, which increasingly included the songwriting of George and Ringo, added a fresh perspective to the beloved band’s repertoire. When the Beatles moved into concept albums with Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in 1967, their songs took on a psychedelic tone, but they didn’t lose any of the heart and vulnerability that attracted so many fans to their music. In fact, their ability to incorporate more experimental music styles gave them the space to explore more complex lyrical themes, and these later albums have a depth that makes them even more moving. These 26 Beatles lyrics are a small sample of the emotional wisdom the musical icons brought to every album throughout their legendary career.


I found that love was more
Than just holding hands
 “If I Fell,” A Hard Day’s Night, 1964

 

I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love
 “Can’t Buy Me Love,” A Hard Day’s Night, 1964

 

Tomorrow may rain so I'll follow the sun
 “I’ll Follow the Sun,” Beatles for Sale, 1964

 

When I was younger, so much younger than today
I never needed anybody's help in any way
But now these days are gone, I'm not so self assured
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors
 “Help!,” Help!, 1965

 

Life is very short and there's no time
For fussing and fighting, my friend
 “We Can Work It Out,” Rubber Soul, 1965

 

There are places I'll remember
All my life though some have changed.
Some forever not for better.
Some have gone and some remain.
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall.
Some are dead and some are living.
In my life, I've loved them all
 “In My Life,” Rubber Soul, 1965

 

All the lonely people, where do they all come from?
All the lonely people, where do they all belong?
 “Eleanor Rigby,” Revolver, 1966

 

Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
Taking my time
 “I’m Only Sleeping,” Revolver, 1966

 

I get by with a little help from my friends
 “With a Little Help From My Friends,” Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, 1967

 

I've got to admit it's getting better,
A little better all the time
 “Getting Better,” Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, 1967

 

And the time will come when you see we're all one
And life flows on within you and without you
 “Within You Without You," Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, 1967

 

There's nothing you can do that can't be done.
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung
 “All You Need Is Love,” Magical Mystery Tour, 1967

 

Nothing you can do, but you can learn how to be you in time
It's easy
All you need is love
 “All You Need Is Love,” Magical Mystery Tour, 1967

 

Living is easy with eyes closed
Misunderstanding all you see
It's getting hard to be someone, but it all works out
 “Strawberry Fields Forever,” Magical Mystery Tour, 1967

 

I don't know why nobody told you
How to unfold your love
 “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” The Beatles (The White Album), 1968

 

All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
 “Blackbird,” The Beatles (The White Album), 1968

 

The sun is up, the sky is blue
It's beautiful, and so are you
– “Dear Prudence,” The Beatles (The White Album), 1968

 

Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better.
 “Hey Jude,” Hey Jude, 1968

 

Well you know that it's a fool who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder
 “Hey Jude,” Hey Jude, 1968

 

Here comes the sun, and I say
It's all right
 “Here Comes the Sun,” Abbey Road, 1969

 

And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love you make
 “The End,” Abbey Road, 1969

 

One thing I can tell you is you got to be free
 “Come Together,” Abbey Road, 1969

 

You and I have memories
Longer than the road that stretches out ahead
 “Two of Us,” Let It Be, 1970

 

And when the night is cloudy, there is still a light that shines on me
Shine on 'til tomorrow, let it be.
 “Let It Be,” Let It Be, 1970

 

Limitless undying love which shines around me like a
Million suns, it calls me on and on,
Across the universe
 “Across the Universe,” Let It Be, 1970

 

The long and winding road that leads to your door
Will never disappear
 “The Long and Winding Road,” Let It Be, 1970

Hi gang! It's been a long time since we've all chatted. I hope everyone is doing okay for our tender years of 75! Can you believe it? It's a far cry from 1965 and what lives we've led. Teachers, Doctors, lawyers, communication, economics, entrepreneurs, homebodies, etc. Oh, the things we've seen and done! The history and music our generation will leave behind. No one has lived as fiercely as us, have fought as hard and the lessons we've learned are our legacy. If you were blessed to have children in your life, there is no greater a gift or joy, especially to have grandchildren. We also drove the coolest cars back in the day, and car shows continue until this day. We had Horseneck Beach, Mary's Pond, Long Pond, east and west beaches and old Cape Cod. We had the shapes for those suits back then.....glad to drop you all a line... thinking of you ... by the way ... if you are in the area, head to Profile Tavern in East Freetown. Great family dining. My son is one of the owners. One of a New Generation of entrepreneurs!

We did not know how good we had it back then. Cousins would come over to play ball in the street and everyone survived. Yes we had it good.

Reading Challenge
All the years I spent in school learning to spell..... and now discover it was not necessary or even useful!  Teachers should have no problem reading this one! 
 
 Here's another trick of Doctor Dementia to test your skills... 

 
Can you meet this challenge?

 
We've seen this with the letters out of order, but this is the first time we've seen it using numbers.  Good example of a Brain Study: If you can read this out loud you have a strong mind.  And better than that: Alzheimer's is a long long, way down the road before it ever gets anywhere near you.

It is with sadness that I post that our classmate, Thelma ( Taylor) Moreira, pass away over the weekend. I knew her since elementary school and cheered along side her at Roosevelt JR High. Great person and friends. Claudia Aguiar Settele.

So sorry to hear of the passing of Thelma Taylor.  Remember her from Roosevelt Jr High.  She was a great girl.  Always enjoyed being in her company.  May her soul rest in peace.

Groaners ...

I never thought orthopedic shoes would really work for me.  ...  But I stand corrected.

Once upon a time there was a king who was only 12 inches tall.  ... He was a terrible king,  but he made a great ruler.

A Mexican magician says he will disappear on the count of 3.  He says: "Uno, dos ..."    Poof.       He disappeared without a tres.

I wrote a book on how to fall down the stairs.    ....  It's a step by step guide.

My son was chewing on electric cords, so I had to ground him. ... It's OK, though. He's doing better and conducting himself properly.

An armed man ran into a real estate agency and shouted: "Nobody move!"

I asked the surgeon if I could administer my own anesthetic. He said, "Sure. Knock yourself out!"

I got into a fight today with 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9.   ... The odds were really against me.

In Britain it's called a lift but Americans call it an elevator. ... I guess we were just raised differently.

97% of people are stupid.   ...  Glad I'm in the other 5%

AND FINALLY,

I have 2 unwritten rules:

1.
