11:30 at night, there is probably no more
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
My #5 son, Nathaniel (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL - '97 - of IL), has about 496 bazillion songs (give or take) on his computer play list which is somehow connected to the television, so whenever we gather downstairs to play games, he turns it on to provide background music. Whenever I hear something which catches my fancy, I make note of it. This is yet another one of those songs - and it didn't hurt that I am a huge Scorpions fan.
There's (unbelievably) no midi file available for today; just watch the video:

Congratulations on the transition to the new website provider. I know you will be pleased when all the data migrates to the new site.
Since many of your subscribers likely have the old URL in their Internet Browser "Favorites" it might be helpful to remind them to remove the old URL and replace it with the current one.

"Honey," said the husband to his wife, "I invited a friend home for supper."
"What? Are you crazy? The house is a mess, I didn't go shopping, all the dishes are dirty, and I don't feel like cooking a fancy meal!"
"I know all that."
"Then why did you invite a friend for supper?"
"Because the poor bloke's thinking about getting married".

One day during cooking class, the teacher, Mrs. Jones, was extolling her secrets for preparing perfect sauces.
When she ordered us to the stoves to prepare our assignments, she said, "Don't forget to use wooden spoons."
As I stirred my sauce, I contemplated the physics behind the mystery of the wooden spoon, and decided it must have something to do with heat conduction.
I approached Mrs. Jones to test my theory.
"Why wooden spoons?" I asked.
"Because," she replied, "if I have to sit here listening to twenty-three metal spoons banging against metal pots, I'll go nuts."
A Brave Man
True bravery is arriving home late after a guy's night out, being assaulted by your wife with a broom, and still having the guts to ask:
"Are you still cleaning or are you flying somewhere?"
