Pat H. in Pennsylvania:

As I got older I liked a lot of groups in the 70s. In fact we had a band and played a number of our favorite group’s songs. We would listen to the songs over and over to make sure we learned the parts correctly of each song. And in the process we got to know each group and each member/musician and how they played, etc. But just curious . . . id you ever know the names of the other musicians in the Turtles back then? Besides flo and Eddie, I can’t say I remembered or knew any of them, esp since they were from the 60s. Like see attached clip. Did you know any of them or do you know their names? Neat clip too. Enjoy!! Have you seen this one?

RESPONSE:

Pat and I then went back and forth via email, adding more clips from the Turtles–arguably the greatest rock band of all time.

Here’s he same song from 2010:

Plus, another song from a 2010 show:

And of course, “Happy Together”……first from 1967:

and in 2010:

I did not know all the names in the Turtles, so I did some research and came up with this excellent account: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Turtles

Pat then wrote back to say:

Click through your Wikipedia site below and go to the turtles web site and click on the east coast performance reqiurements contract. Read it through. Ha!!! I’m thinking that the requirements may cost more than hiring them Ha!!!

Here’s what I found: http://theturtles.com/eastcoastrider.pdf

As is often the case, Pat is on target. I’m surprised that anybody does ever hire them.

Laughter Therapy; Say Hello to Giggles! [directed toward women]

Before you begin your day, look in the mirror and start hysterically laughing. You are going to feel like a raging lunatic and butthead at first, but then it actually becomes hilarious and you will be producing tears of laughter.

Pat H. in Pennsylvania:

Went to an acupuncturist a few years ago. Excellent! I highly recommend it. Sad, but some people can’t get past the needle thoughts. I had all kinds of respiratory issues. I also took my daughter who had major bad allergies. Acupuncurist helped me and but really helped my daughter. We really saw a difference in her allergies. Not cured, but much much better. And it made you feel great!!!!! No real proof, but I think women benefit more from acupuncture than men. No real reason I say this other than when I went to the acupuncturists office, it seemed like it was always loaded with women patients. Again no proof, but I got the feeling the acupuncturist helped big time with women and PMS and menopause issues. The only problem was that the acupuncturist was very expensive and insurance did not pay for it at all. Sad. I think each office visit was like $ 65.00. And that could add up quickly. Laughing here, but no joke.. I suspect that being an acupuncturist could be a very lucrative career. FYI, it was tough to even get an appointment. I actually went to one in Doylestown. And it was always crowded. And you had to schedule an apt that wasn’t always convenient. FYI.. there was never any pain from the needles. None at all. They are very tiny. In fact I never felt them at all. All I can says is after I left the office I always felt great!!!!!!!!!! Again, no real proof, but judging from the type cars in the parking log, the clothes, jewelry, etc., it seemed most of her women patients were rich or very well off. And it kind of struck me that these women were paying for a “high” that they could legally get from the acupuncture. Ha! Again, no disrespect and no real proof, other than they seemed much much happier after they left her office.
