Julie Andrews does it again!

Found this entry in my email listing! Apparently this really
happened. Enjoy!

To commemorate Her 69th birthday on October 1,
actress/vocalist Julie Andrews made a special
appearance at Manhattan's Radio City Music Hall for
the benefit of the AARP. One of the musical numbers
she performed was "My Favorite Things" from the
legendary movie "Sound Of Music". However, the lyrics
of the song were deliberately changed for the
entertainment of her "blue hair" audience. Here are
the lyrics she recited:


Maalox and nose drops and needles for knitting,
Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings, Bundles
of magazines tied up in string, These are a few of my
favorite things.

Cadillacs, cataracts, hearing aids and glasses,
Polident, Fixodent and false teeth in glasses,
Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings, These
are a few of my favorite things.

When the pipes leak, When the bones creak, When the
knees go bad, I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don't feel so bad.

Hot tea and crumpets, and corn pads for bunions, No
spicy hot food or food cooked with onions, Bathrobes
and heat pads and hot meals they bring, These are a
few of my favorite things.

Back pains, confused brains, and no fear of sinnin,'
Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin',
And we won't mention our short shrunken frames, When
we remember our favorite things.

When the joints ache, when the hips break, When the
eyes grow dim, Then I remember the great life I've
had, And then I don't feel so bad.


Ms. Andrews received a standing ovation from the
crowd that lasted over four minutes and repeated

North Carolina Lottery

Now, it's official. The ticket stub actually says it supports NC Education. As an educator, I hope and pray that it will put money into my pocket instead of taking it out :O So Mike Easley, does this mean a raise in teacher salary? After all, we are the lowest paid teachers in the Southeast. Time to catch up!!!
