The day the Beatles and Elvis Presley met face-to-face

Jun 10, 2009 | Posted by: awc | Full story: www.examiner.com

For years, it's been one of best untold stories ever -- what happened Aug. 27, 1965 when the Beatles met Elvis Presley in a house in Los Angeles. Few details have slinked out and there are photos, possibly taken by a fan, that purports to be from the evening. ‘If you guys are just going to sit around and stare at me, I’m going to bed.’ That broke the ice and got a laugh out of everybody. Right away, the Beatles understood that Elvis was a guy with a sense of humor—and a guy who really loved crazy British humor. It wasn’t too long before John and Elvis were talking about Peter Sellers and favorite scenes from Dr. Strangelove.”

Well after 30 years of riding the rails and singing with hobos I've gotten used to it. When I was in the South I hung out with hillbilly moonshiners and sang for them.I went way up North and drank and sang for the Eskimos .Now a days I sing on Park benches and in alley ways and sometimes Truck stops and in any bar they will give me free drinks for entertaining their patrons. I still working on getting to sing in Walmart parking lots.

<quoted text>Last Friday there was a protest against Walmart in several states by the employees because of Walmart greed and and their cheap minimum wage paying jobs, They fire or threaten anyone that mentions a Union.People having to work at last minutes notice for holidays no medical or any decent benefits.Corporate Greed just like McDonalds.As far as prices and locations they still have thousands flock there. Myself I still go to K=mart.
It's not as bad as the protesters are making it sound. If you're part-time, you don't get very many benefits. But, if you're full-time, you get quite a bit of benefits. Maybe the protesters are part-time associates.
