More Nostalgia From Our Web Site & Email


In this post, I have listed pretty much the rest of the memory-lane-type site links that are currently listed on our web site as well as others emailed  me over the years that never quite made it to our web site.

This one is from Grant Newton (58) by way of my sister.

A great music site. I think I received this link for the first time from a student of mine.

Gary Crone passed this test along in March 2007. He said he got 18 right.
History 101 Exam

I really like this one that Diane Thorpe (Borkowski) emailed in December 2007.

This one has cool music and some cool ca photos. Some of you may have similar ones back then.

Here’s another one from Diane that is a little different.

Again from Grant Newton (58)

This one is from Paul Jorgensen.

I recently got this one from my cousin, Stan. Just type in any song and see what happens. After the song is played, other songs from the same era are played. Interesting and fun to boot.

This one is from another one of my digital photography students.

50 years of images in 3 minutes .. just awesome .. enjoy!!

Prepare Yourself – For those of a “certain age” this is rather like having your entire life flash before your eyes – (so I am told…)

This is great…. Turn up the volume, sit back and enjoy a review of 50 years of history in less than 3 minutes!

Thanks to Billy Joel and someone from the University of Chicago with too much time on Google!

Just click on the link below. When the song starts  it helps to click on ” Lyrics ” in the lower right. Use the full screen option on the upper left if the images are too big or too small.

I received this one from Paul pretty recently. You may want to check it out reasonably soon. Movies of this type tend to come and go due to the copyright cops.

Subject: Dueling Pianos 
Sit back and enjoy something you don’t see every day, all 3 playing pianos on the same stage at the same time. 
Brace yourself and make sure your sound is on because this show will rock you out of your seat.
..Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis & Fats Domino all on stage at the same time playing their very best of their hit music! 
This is a once in a lifetime appearance and one you will not forget! Ron Woods and others playing ‘Back-Up’. A ‘Cameo Appearance’ by Rod Stewart. All directed by Paul Schaeffer . 
JUST CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW:

Well, there you have it. I have included those links that I have been keeping waiting for the time to post them on our web site. Actually I had more, but when I went to the link several were no longer available.

I know there are tons more out there. But I am going to move on to other things I want to make available here.

Thanks to all who contributed these links. By the way, I have been listening to a lot of cool music as I was typing this. Great fun.

Until next time.

Don
