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!

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

 

Saturday 9: Nights on Broadway (1975)

1) It's estimated that there are more than 200 separate streets called "Broadway" in the United States. Does your town have a Broadway?

No; we're too small, but Sacramento, 15 miles away does.

2) Think of the last time you celebrated well into the night. What street were you on?

The only "celebrating" I do these days is opening night parties after a show, so the last time would have been March 24, opening night party for "Mother and Sons," for which we didn't stay.  But it was after dark when we left.  And that would have been on J Street.

3) The Bee Gees blame it all on those songs that go straight to the heart. What love song always makes you go, "aw ...?"

"Till There Was You," from The Music Man

4) Even though their sound depended on tight harmonies, all three Bee Gees were heavy smokers, which is not good for the throat. What habit do you have that wish you could break?

Well, overeating, but I don't care enough that I'm working to break it.

5) In addition to the three Gibbs who sang this song, there was a fourth brother, Andy, who also had hit records. But did you know the Gibbs' had a sister, Lesley? Your turn: share some trivia that's rattling around in your head.

Painted ladies butterflies migrate 9,000 miles from Africa to Antarctica (just saw that on a Nature special yesterday!)

6) "Nights on Broadway" was recorded in Miami. When you think of Florida, what comes to mind?

Sadly, Mar-a-lago.

7) In 1975, when this song was popular, Sony introduced the Betamax and JVC gave us the VCR. Sam admits she was glad to see VCRs go because she never could program hers. What about you? Do you adapt easily to new technology?

I used to be a techno-wiz, but not any more.  I can work the smart TV remote.  That's about it.  Heck, I just called my computer guru to come and fix my computer.  Fortunately Walt discovered that the problem was that the shift key was stuck down.  Unstuck it.  Computer fixed!  That's how much of a techno-wiz I am these days!

8) The Bee Gees' greatest success came two years later, in 1977, with the soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever. Have you ever seen the John Travolta movie?

No.  I've seen video clips, but I've never watched the whole movie.

9) Random question -- Your mail carrier is very attractive, and flirts with you each day when dropping off the mail. Would you a) ignore it or b) let the carrier know, firmly but politely, that you're not interested, c) complain to your local post office or d) subscribe to more magazines and order more stuff to guarantee that the mail carrier comes every day

Definitely not D or C.  A tossup between A and B, but being non-confrontational, I suspect I'd go with A (and thinking of the likelihood of this actually happening, A is the best choice!)

Isn't this fabulous?  It's a CAKE!!!!!

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!

Apparently someone decided I should approve comments before they appear -- it wasn't me! --
so if you don't see your comment, it's because it's awaiting approval.  Sorry 'bout that!
