Who Can I Turn To?

“Every man has his own destiny: the only imperative is to follow it,
to accept it, no matter where it leads him.”

Henry Miller
(26 Dec 1891 - 07 June 1980)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   This golden oldie popped into my head again recently.....

BONUS - - Who Can I Turn To? - Anthony Newley, 1965


"Who Can I Turn To?" is a popular song.

It was written by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley and published in 1964. The song was introduced in the musical The Roar of the Greasepaint—the Smell of the Crowd, which struggled in the United Kingdom in 1964 and then made a tour of the United States later that year. In 1964 Shirley Bassey recorded the song and released it as a single, however it failed to chart. Recorded by Tony Bennett, "Who Can I Turn To?" became a hit, reaching number 33 on the U.S. pop singles chart and the top 5 of the Adult Contemporary chart. So fueled, the musical arrived on Broadway for a successful run, and the song became one of Bennett's staples.

        From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 09/02/13 - "Missionary Sing-a-long!":

Our car (1992 Buick LeSabre) suffered from a broken water pump pulley Monday evening while I was escorting the Spring Lake missionaries on an exchange (taking them to their appointments). It was our last stop for the evening and ended at about 8:30 to 9:00 P.M.

We called for help, and decided to walk the mile and a half from the Price home to route 210 in order to help our rescue driver find us more easily. Our route was a rural, dirt road, and the Elders decided that it would be good to sing while we walked. That helped me to take my mind off being winded from the short walk. They sang and I walked! Well, tried to walk!

We were within sight of the highway, when Elder Bagley asked if he could borrow my flashlight and turn it on for a second. He had sensed that something was waiting in the darkness ahead, so he quickly turned on the flashlight to reveal about fifteen pit bull dogs heading in our direction. I suggested that he turn off the light, and that we should walk slowly toward our destination, keeping our hands still and our voices calm. The beautiful voices of the missionaries when combined with the protection of the "Spirit" allowed us to safely allude the fifteen angry pit bulls while arriving at our destination unscathed. I would call that a major miracle, considering the anger of the dogs!

   YOWZERONI-WOWZERONI! Thanks, Haul Party! There are two conditions in life - fixed and broken. In all conditions I vastly prefer fixed, but even though our poor car is temporarily (I hope!) incapacitated, I'm so thankful that you and Elder Bagley and Elder Clark were guarded and preserved through that ordeal!

The day that Albert Einstein most feared ...
 A day at the beach Cheering on your team Having dinner out with your friends  Out on an intimate date
Having a conversation with your BFF A visit to the museum Enjoying the sights  

It’s here!

   YOWZERONI! Thanks, Randy - I think!

Baby Moving

My wife went to the doctor last week and asked, "I'm 4 months pregnant, when do you think the baby will move?"

The doctor replied, "If you are lucky, as soon as she finishes college!"


*-- Q and A Quickies --*

Q: What did the lawyer name his daughter?

A: Sue.

Q: What kind of dress can't be worn?

A: Address.


*-- Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes --*

The problem - There's a box with a hole at each end and there's a rabbit in the box. The rabbit sticks his head out of the hole in one end, and a minute later he sticks it out the other end.

Half a minute later, his head appears at the opposite end, a fourth of a minute later it appears at the end opposite to that one, an eighth of a minute later... etc., etc.

How long will it take before the rabbit sticks its head out of both ends of the box at the same time?

In theory, two minutes. In practice, no answer is possible unless, of course, you split hares.



"He who rejects change is the architect of decay."

"Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family."
- Kofi Annan

"You don't make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas."
- Shirley Chisholm

"Seeds of great discoveries are constantly floating around us, but they only take root in minds well prepared to receive them.
- Joseph Henry

"If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves."

Good Advice

Don’t be angry just because another may think that he is better than you; after all, what goes on inside another's head is his/her concern; what you allow to go on inside of your head is your concern.

Wisdom Tips--health

1. Just 10 minutes of exercising a day is better than none. Dance to a few songs, walk around the block, anything to get moving.

2. Craving chocolate? Have some dark chocolate! Recent research has shown that moderate consumption of dark chocolate may be good for your heart. Supplementing the average American diet with 1/2 an ounce of dark chocolate has shown to have a healthy effect on blood cholesterol levels. So, go ahead and indulge!




He stood over my desk, a broken man but still holding together.

Mr. Willie Adams is a truck driver for our company. He has worked for the company for 17 years. He has been married for 39 years.

Last month, his wife died.

The death of a spouse is psychologically rated as the toughest thing a person will ever deal with in life. It was Mr. Adams toughest thing.

There was a statement that he made that really struck me.

"I have no guilt," he said.

"I did all for her that I could do in our 39 years. There was nothing more that I could have done. If she asked for the moon, I tried to reach up and grab it for her."

Those were his words. Those were his feelings.

He is not an academically educated man. He is not rich by the world's standards. But Mr. Adams had something that few possess, an undying, unselfish love.

He said, "We married for love and made a vow 'till death do us part' and we kept it."

It's the toughest thing that psychologists say we will ever endure. Sooner or later, in all married couples, one must leave the other behind.

Now is the time to begin traveling the path so that if you are the one staying on the earth a little longer you can say,

"I did all that I could do, I did my best."

Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)

Music by Anthony Newley (24 Sept 1931 – 14 Apr 1999)

Lyrics by
Leslie Bricusse
(b. 29 Jan 1931)

- From The Roar of the Greasepaint—the Smell of the Crowd (1965)

Who can I turn to when nobody needs me?
My heart wants to know and so I must go where destiny leads me
With no star to guide me and no one beside me
I'll go on my way and, after the day, the darkness will hide me

And maybe tomorrow I'll find what I'm after
I'll throw off my sorrow, beg, steal, or borrow my share of laughter
With you I could learn to, with you what a new day
But who can I turn to if you turn away?

With you I could learn to, with you what a new day
But who can I turn to if you turn away?
