It is an amazing coincidence that my journal entry for yesterday was all about Cher!!

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.
 

ALL I EVER NEED IS YOU (1971)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) The lyrics tell us that some men search for silver, some for gold. Are you wearing either silver or gold right now?
No.

2) This song was a top 20 hit in the United States but sold much better in Canada. What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think of our neighbor to the North?
Alex Trebek!

3) It's performed by one of pop's most successful duos, Sonny and Cher. Can you name another duo that made hit records?
Sandler and Young

4) In addition to their recording career, Sonny and Cher were TV stars. In a recurring sketch on their variety show, Cher played a "v-a-m-p: VAMP!" These characters were always sexy and seductive. Do you consider yourself a good flirt?
Good lord, no.

5) Sonny dropped out of high school in Inglewood, CA. Cher dropped out of high school in Fresno. What's the last year of education you completed?
First year of college at UC Berkeley...then I went to work for the university.

6) Sonny first became Mayor of Palm Springs, and then represented the district in Congress. The city erected a statue in Sonny's memory. Tell us about a statue or monument in your town.

The city calls this the E Street Plaza, but to us it's "Paul Plaza" because the performing area is dedicated to our son and has lots of bricks engraved for him.


7) Cher is often described as outspoken. Ask her for her opinion on anything from politics to plastic surgery, and you will get a frank answer. Does "outspoken" apply to you, as well?
Not really.  I'm frank mentally, but more evasive publicly.

8) In 1971, when this song was popular, Sears sold a portable manual typewriter. Described at the time as, "lightweight for travelers," it weighed 10 lbs. Today the average laptop weighs half that. Do you own a typewriter?
I think we have an old typewriter in Walt's office, probably covered in dust.

9) Random question -- Which has gotten you out of more scrapes: your smarts, or your charm?
That's assuming I've gotten out of scrapes.  Probably my smarts, but I wouldn't count on it.
