Who would have thought that the world us still such a backward place. I absolutely love this article. The punch line is at the very bottom. (You have to know the old testament. “If I must die, I must die.”) I won’t spoil it for you! I wonder how Nina Davuluri is fairing? I suspect she has been able to take it with a sense of humor. People keep ridiculing me for trying to change the world. The goods news it HAS CHANGED!!!!!!!! Go Nina! Jo
What we need is a great big melting pot
Big enough enough enough to take
The world and all its got And keep it stirring for a hundred years or more
And turn out coffee coloured people by the score

Love it. Never heard the tune before.
Happy weekend, Jo, and thank you for helping to make this world a better place. 🙂
Hi Victoria, I feel like I have dropped of the world. Swamped in work. I must be much older than you this song used to be a raging hit when I was young.
Have a great weekend, Jo
I checked the band out on Wiki, and they never made the U.S. Billboard Hop 100 Charts in America, except once (#64 with “Our World”), but they did in the UK.
I’m thinking this band was also as popular in your country during that time, late 60’s early 70’s. I was still a kid. I owned many 45’s, but that was a group I don’t recall ever hearing them before, though they apparently toured the U.S a while back. Thanks for sharing. I love discovering new music. So great to see you stick your head above the surface and post. I’m also thrilled about your new writing project. =)
It’s funny when something is really big in your own country you just presume the rest of the world know it too. I haven’t forgotten yours! Jo
