Saturday9: Love me or Leave me, and let me be lonely?

I Don't Know How to Love Him

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9: I Don't Know How to Love Him (1971)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) This song is from Jesus Christ, Superstar. Though now a beloved classic, the play was controversial when it first premiered. Can you think of something else that originally made people uncomfortable, but went on to be accepted?
Lots and lots of things, though, to be honest, "Jesus Christ Superstar" still makes some people uncomfortable.  Not myself but some others whom I know.  I see it as a great tribute to His life.

2) Jesus Christ, Superstar was originally developed as a "concept album," a collection of songs written to sequentially tell the story of The Crucifixion and Resurrection. Do you remember the first album you bought? Did you download it, listen to it on a CD player, your cassette deck, or record player?  
Yes, and it was a vinyl LP, something classical guitar, and played on my mother's HiFi.  This was before stereo tracts were figured out.

3) When the album's songs were performed live in concert at the Pennsylvania Civic Arena, producers decided to stage it as a play and the rest, as they say, is history. Tell us about a really good idea you've had recently.  
I decided to join a group that does world wide meditation, Synchronously.

4) Jesus Christ, Superstar is a truly international phenomenon. During a revival tour that began in 2011, it's been a hit with audiences in the United States, Canada, Britain, Ireland, Brazil, Hungary, India, New Zealand, Italy, France, Mexico, Chile, Bulgaria, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Iceland, Russia, Poland, Czech Republic, Greece, Australia, The Philippines, South Africa, Panama, Colombia, Croatia, Bolivia, The Netherlands and Portugal. Besides the United States, which of those countries have you visited? 
Mexico.  OlĂ©!  In my next life I want to be an Anthropologist that gets grants to go dig in all the other places, those lucky ducks....

5) Peeps are big sellers every Easter. Would you rather have yellow chicks or pink bunnies?
Neither, unless we get to have the bunnies have sword fights in the microwave -then I choose bunnies.  Otherwise I want a big Chocolate Egg from See's Candy.  Now your talkin...

6) Jelly beans are also popular this time of year. One theory says they were introduced in Boston during the 19th century. What else comes to mind when you think of Boston?
Well, lessee..... There is the annual Marathon,  the Boston Tea Party, Boston Baked Beans, and wow, I didn't know they also were on the map for the intro to jelly beans.  I wonder if they also inspired jelly bellies as they surely inspired another candy called Boston Baked Beans.

Whaaaaat?  Anyway, that's where the picture was from.  I should have tried harder, I know.

7) We've been talking a lot about sweets this morning. The only holiday that generates more candy sales is Halloween. When do you eat more candy: Easter or Halloween?
I'm not much of a candy eater unless it's Christmas time.  Then I can't get enough of it, or rather, I can get too much.  Pacing helps but doesn't always succeed in saving me from myself.

8) Easter lilies will adorn many churches this Sunday. What's your favorite flower? 
I like the wild ones best and then the cultivated ones.  I love and appreciate all flowers, even the stinky ones.   Nature is amazing...  
I have one of these but this one isn't mine
It comes from HERE - a wonderful Cactus blog

9) Easter is considered the season of rebirth. What makes you feel refreshed or rejuvenated?
A nice long soak in a bubbling Jacuzzi.  I can't wait!  My Doctor practically forbade me to go into that tub without grab bars, which are now on order.


  1. I remember loving those LPs, but now? I can't imagine a time not being able to move a track by pressing a button. That lifting the needle and trying to find the groove in the record seems so archaic now.

  2. Oh how I remember those days. A few years ago I digitized our Vinyl, so got some practic at that art again. I found out a few nights ago that people are still making records and selling them. Thanks for the memories and for stopping by, Kimberly. :-)

  3. Gee, I thought Ronald Reagan invited the jelly bean

  4. When we remodeled the bathroom and put in a walk in shower with grab bars, it was the best thing we ever did.

    1. That's a great idea.
      Not quite a walk in, but we have an oversized fiberglass, step in shower in one bathroom,too, because it's what would fit there. It's turned to be the best thing we could have done in there.

  5. I love fudge at Christmas. The rest of the year I eat dark chocolate. One square of a Ghiradelli bar - 60-70% cocoa. Sooooo good!

    1. Hi Nonnie, yummy Christmas fudge it is, and it's hard to not eat too much. As you do, I eat a little dark chocolate every day. Mine is usually TJ's pound plus or the even darker truffle one. Yum!

  6. I can't even imagine people around the world agreeing on anything let alone something as harmless as meditation

    1. Indeed, though hard to believe for me as well, there are tens of thousands who do this. Amazing.

  7. Oh! Baked beans! That's the flavor of summer for me. Yum!

    1. Yes, a summer flavor! Baked Beans are great, but I'll never eat them on toast. It seems so wrong but is a complete protein that way.

  8. Growing up in New England, Saturday night was always Beans on toast night! Yummy!

  9. Then maybe it's time to try it! It seemed like an English country thing to do because in the series,"All Creaturs Great and Small", Herriot was always eating them that way.
