    What's popular isn't always what's right and what's right isn't always what's popular!

    Song Title: Whatís to become of the Mockingbird

    LISTEN NOW
     

    Songwriter: Angie Heimann
    Fort Bragg,
    California

    Source of Inspiration: To Kill A Mockingbird
    Author: Harper Lee

    How to reach Angie: angieheimann@adelphia.net
    Angie's URL: TBA       
    Quote from the songwriter:
    I love the way this book describes the difference between coming gently into adulthood and losing one's innocence in a way that does irreparable damage. In the song I attempted to articulate this difference through the various "mockingbirds" (the "innocent" characters in danger of a violent loss.)

    In a courtroom in a southern town
    Watchers white and black and brown
    Come to see the falling down
    Of a mockingbird


    They wonít uproot a lie so old
    With so much history to uphold
    No matter how the truth is told
    Against a white manís word
    And so the mockingbird is caged
    A sacrifice for day and age
    To bring the turning of a page
    Not just yet, but more near it

    Whatís to become of a mockingbird
    Singing so sweet in the tree
    Whenís this world gonna be a place
    Where the innocent go free

    High up in the balcony
    Nesting as if in a tree
    Two eggs among the ebony
    In danger of the fall
    But they wonít break despite the spill
    A fatherís firm unbending will
    Cushions where the fall would kill
    Innocence and all

    He who would protect his young
    He who would have justice done
    Draws the truth which must be sung
    But cannot make them hear it

    Whatís to become of a mockingbird
    Singing so sweet in the tree
    Whenís this world gonna be a place
    Where the innocent go free

    The path is never clean or sterile
    Seeking justice invites peril
    Unleashing beasts rabid and feral
    Loose upon our streets
    A father, though he aims the best
    Preparing them for trial and test
    Must let the young ones leave the nest
    Their own wings for to beat
    When their little world is shaken
    A friend who know the feel of breaking
    Comes out in time to stop the taking
    Of their precious songs

    Whatís to become of a mockingbird
    Singing so sweet in the tree
    Whenís this world gonna be a place
    Where the innocent go free

FRIDAY, day 29

What's grammatically wrong with this sign?

How about this one?

What's grammatically wrong with the sign in the following picture?

 

How much do people really care about spelling? Look at this scenario!

Here are Carina and her cousin Sweden in the middle of Sweden at  Falukoppargruva (the world famous Falun Copper Mine) where in 1968  the Swedish King made a huge "faux pas" (mistake)!

Falukoppargruva is a copper mine where there's a tradition that Swedish Kings and Queens "write" their names in gold deep down in the mine.  Look below:

If you look behind Carina, in 1973, King-Carl Gustaf XVI spelled his own name wrong;  he wrote "Gustf" without the "a"!

You can see in the two pictures below that in 1988, he went back and re-did it after getting so much flack from the Swedish public.  Look above Carina's head.  You can also see that Queen Silvia Victoria also wrote her name in 1993.

Below are some pictures (bad quality--Sorry!  They're over 30 years old) of Wally in 1974 in Uppsala Sweden meeting Carl Gustaf, King of Sweden, at Uppsala Castle, when she made that horrible mistake of using the wrong pronoun to address a KING!
