Today’s video is a recording of Bobby Goldsboro performing his pop hit from 1974, called “Hello, Summertime.”  Happy Summer from Jankenpon!

Birds and bees and all the flowers and trees, fishes on the line
Girls and guys and yellow butterflies singing hello summertime
A homemade boat and a river to float nothing on our mind
Summer moon above two people in love singing hello summertime

Summertime laying back in the sun, yes summertime having summertime fun
It’s a time for two just me and you and the summertime
Swing from a limb drop in for a swim, hey the water sure looks fine
Ain’t nothing wrong just floating along singing hello summertime

Summertime grins, lots of good friends we’re all feeling fine
Watch the sun go down, hear the summer sounds singing hello summertime
Summertime laying back in the sun, yes summertime having summertime fun
It’s a time for two just me and you and the summertime

Today’s Quote

Age is opportunity no less,
Than youth itself, though in another dress,
And as the evening twilight fades away,
The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.”

–Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882), Morituri Salutamus

“Doing so is consistent with California’s long history of treating all people and their relationships with equal dignity and respect.”

– California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R), in his filing that recommended same sex marriages be immediately allowed in the State of California following Judge Vaughan Walker’s ruling on August 12, 2010 that voter-approved Proposition 8 violates the U.S. Constitution’s guarantee of equality and due process under law.
