I'VE GOT 13 CHANNELS OF _ HI T  on the TV to chose from!
  

Pink Floyd! (I bow down).

Calling it like it was back then. Not only were there ONLY 13 channels, but 12 went off the air at Midnight O'clock! And what better way to prepare yourself for another day and say good bye to the one just past than to hear, 

Marion Mitchell "Duke" Morrison (born Marion Robert Morrison; May 26, 1907 – June 11, 1979), better known by his stage name  
John Wayne
(Which is my Given Name by the way! Yes--I heard all the jokes!


But there were many who read this in tribute to our Airmen & Women as station after station signed of for the night in the 60's!!! But what a comfort- to hear these words coming from someone who WAS the GI, Pilot, Rugged-EVERYMAN, and who would forever keep America Safe!recognizable voice to millions- instantly bringing trust, comfort and believability---there could be no agenda...........   doing a phenomenal monologue to end the night's Shows. Pink even then warning of Big Big Brother's attempt, to keep us in line, Cookie Cutter cutouts all (with only slight differences, in features and personalities).  BUT NONE IN INDEPENDANT THOUGHT OR BELIEF!!!!!!.....Yes, Yes, I do digress.


High Flight

by John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds...and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of...wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up, the long, delirious burning blue
I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, nor even eagle flew.
And while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high
untrespassed sanctity of space...
...put out my hand, and
touched the face of God.




I can't remember if he did the entire poem..a part of it and then finishedGod Bless America-- (Verbal- not sung)- to close the days' viewing. To be replaced with the Indian Logo, or the Channels Emblem, or my favorite-

The Alaskan Snowstorm Whiteout!


In reading the poem (Which I never had in it's entirety until now---see how educational Blogging can be? NO- if you want to know the significance of the poem, from where it genesis sprang, GoogleBingYahooWickiAltaPedia it JUROWNSELF!  In rear-view 20/20- even though objects oft appear closer than they are so how can it be 20...??? nevermind.: in hindsight we can see so much of almost Sciencefictionish (word?), the allegory easily seen now, since we have slipped the surly bonds,  have danced on Silver Wings, and in some aspects, we have indeed, touched the Face of God, if you care to use the magnificent Hubble Pictures of others' Galaxies.
Look at the some of the wording...-
I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace
Where never lark,
nor even eagle flew
.
I TRESPASSED? Did I do something wrong by dreming to escape Surly BONDS? To Fly on a Lark......to dare to be different, to wbnat to explore and queation ALL, to see what was in store?
The high untrespassed sanctity of space...
...put out my hand, and
touched the face of God.




what beautiful words...... 
-- trespassers will be shot--it's sacred, mine, hoy, keep off etc....
OK LET'S GET TO IT--WE HAVE SEVERAL HUNDRED CHANNELS- I HAVE A FAVORITES LIST PARED DOWN TO 83! 83 CHANNELS THAT I MAY WATCH....AND I HAVE A SUPER SECRET FAVORITE LIST- ONE, PAIRED DOWN TO TO A MERE 47 CHANNELS OUT OF THE ADVERTISED
HUNDREDS!
PRETTY COOL-- A MAJOR SELLING POINT AT ONE TIME, AND BLINDLY TAKING THE BAIT WE SAY, MORE MUST BE BETTER- WE IN REALITY- WE WOULD BE MUCH BTTER OF SLIPPING THE SURLY BONDS OF EARTH AND TRESPASSING 
ANYWHERE WE WANTED TO GO WITH AN ELECTRONIC BOOK READER! AND YES, SINCE I HAVE HAVE NEVER EVER RECEIVED ANYTHING FROM MY MASS AUDIENCE- I WOULD ACCEPT ONE, HUMBLY, GRACIOUSY- AS LONG AS IT'S LOADED WITH GOOD BOOKS!~

SOUNDS TOO MUCH LIKE GROVELLING DOESN'T IT?
