Chris sends this.

This is a video of the Carpenters, complete with full orchestra, doing a rather bizarre cover of a rather bizarre song.

The idea for this track was suggested by an actual event that is described in The Flying Saucer Reader, a book by Jay David published in 1967. In March 1953 an organization known as the "International Flying Saucer Bureau" sent a bulletin to all its members urging them to participate in an experiment termed "World Contact Day" whereby, at a predetermined date and time, they would attempt to collectively send out a telepathic message to visitors from outer space. The message began with the words..."Calling occupants of interplanetary craft!"


In checking it out, I found this.   This was "our" song.  How young we were.   : )     And still are, of course.


You will have to cut and paste the addresses into the browser.  They are not coming up in blue.  I listen to the music and think how sad it is that Karen Carpenter died of anorexia.  So beautiful and she couldn't see it.   Again, image.  May our eyes see kindness, gentleness, and beauty wherever we proceed.
