"Morning Has Broken" is a hymn that is in the Hymnal in the Episcopal Church. You might remember it was a hit by Cat Stevens if you know anything about music or if you were alive in the 1970's. Many people think that he is the author of this song as he is so closely identified with it, but he did not write it. In 1931, an English poet and children's author by the name of Eleanor Farjeon was asked to write the lyrics to a beautiful melody from Scotland called "Bunessan". (Please, I hope no one takes offense...if it is Irish/Scottish/Welsh...I truly love this tune and it matters not from whence it came, it makes a lovely hymn and I am happy that it was made into a well received pop song.)
We sing this song at our church and I have a special fondness for it as I asked for it to be played at our wedding, also from the long ago time of June of 1983!
Hey! For people of the USA, tomorrow on April 15th, Arby's is giving away FREE curly fries!
Also, at Hard Rock Cafe, if you go after 5PM and sing a song in its entirety in front of the whole restaurant, you will be awarded a FREE entree! I cannot imagine how much booze you would have to give me to make me stand up in front of people and talk, let alone sing! This is in honor (or to make the day a bit easier to bear?) of it being the last day in which to file your income taxes! That is what I heard on TV but I think it is really in honor of my birthday tomorrow! That is the real reason, I am sure of it!
Okay now, think of me when you are eating those curly fries!
Who loves ya, baby? (This is also a quote that is a blast from the past...anybody remember who said that?)
