On 15 April 2019, just before 18:50 CEST, a fire broke out beneath the roof of Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. By the time the fire was extinguished fifteen hours later, the building’s spire and roof had collapsed and its interior, upper walls, and windows had been severely damaged; even more extensive damage to the interior was prevented by the stone vaulted ceiling, which largely contained the burning roof as it collapsed. Many works of art and other treasures were evacuated early in the emergency, but many others were damaged or destroyed. The cathedral’s two pipe organs, and its three 13th-century rose windows, suffered little or no damage. No person, firefighter or civilian, was killed by the fire.

President Emmanuel Macron promised the country would restore the cathedral and launched a fundraising campaign which brought in pledges of €800 million within 24 hours. It has been estimated that restoration could require twenty years or more.

Construction of the cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris (“Our Lady of Paris”) began in the 12th century, using stonework for the walls and vault and wood for the main roofs and spire. The original flèche (spire) lasted until 1383, its replacement was lost in a 1630 fire, and a third was damaged by wind and removed between 1786 and 1791; the spire lost in the fire, made of lead-covered oak and designed by Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc, was added in the mid-19th century. The cathedral was listed as part of the “Paris, Banks of the Seine” UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991.

In recent years the cathedral suffered significantly from crumbling stonework, primarily due to environmental pollution; for example, acid rain attacks limestone. In 2014, the Ministry of Culture estimated the cost of the renovation work needed by the cathedral at €150 million.

In 2016, the Archdiocese of Paris launched an appeal to raise €100 million over the following five to ten years to meet the costs of maintenance and restoration. At the time of the fire, it was undergoing renovations on the spire, estimated to cost €6 million. Steel scaffolding had been erected around the roofs.

Mick Jagger recovering from Successful Heart Surgery in New York

 
 
MICK
 
“WISHING YOU ALL THE BEST”
 
WE LOVE YOU
 
“GET WELL SOON”

 

Mick Jagger has successfully undergone what is being described as a “minimally invasive” heart valve replacement procedure.The Rolling Stones frontman is reportedly resting at an unspecified New York CIty hospital. According to Billboard, Jagger was given a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). By using this procedure, doctors were able to repair the heart valve using a catheter that accesses a major artery without opening the chest.
This will allow Jagger to recover much faster than he would be able to do after a more conventional and invasive procedure. Assuming there are no post-surgery complications, the singer could be released from the hospital within a few days.
The Stones postponed their scheduled No Filter tour in order to give the 75-year-old singer time to recover. Rescheduled dates have not yet been announced, although Billboard notes that the shows are now expected to take place starting in July, with details arriving “in the coming weeks.”
News of Jagger’s health issues first broke on March 30. “Unfortunately today the Rolling Stones have had to announce the postponement of their upcoming U.S. / Canada tour dates,” the band confirmed in a prepared statement. “We apologize for any inconvenience this causes those who have tickets to shows but wish to reassure fans to hold onto these existing tickets, as they will be valid for the rescheduled dates, which will be announced shortly.”
“Mick has been advised by doctors that he cannot go on tour at this time, as he needs medical treatment. The doctors have advised Mick that he is expected to make a complete recovery so that he can get back on stage as soon as possible.”
Jagger expressed disappointment at having to postpone the dates, saying he was “so sorry to all our fans in America & Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this. I’m devastated for having to postpone the tour but I will be working very hard to be back on the road as soon as I can. Once again, huge apologies to everyone.”
The singer has always taken his health seriously, especially in his elder years. According to The Sun, Jagger maintains a healthy, organic diet, jogs up to eight miles a day and also participates in activities like cycling, yoga and meditation. The septuagenarian credits his healthy lifestyle for enabling him to continue touring and performing at a high level.

MickSTONESsEdSULIVAN1964

The ROLLING STONES

ED SULLIVAN SHOW

Look at Mick! I was a young boy of just 6 years old when I first heard or knew anything about Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones. Mick sang “Time Is on My Side” and I just Loved it. Loved Mick and the Band ever since. The Rolling Stones have always been there for me, ever since I was that young little six year old boy and watching them perform on The Ed Sullivan Show, which was maybe the greatest show of its time, and one of the few places to see musical acts such as ELVIS, The Beatles, The Jackson 5 (Michael Jackson), Dianna Ross & The Supremes and other great performers of the 1960s. We watch Ed Sullivan and his guest each and every Sunday Night, just as millions of other families did all around America. Back then, there was nothing quite like the Ed Sullivan Show.

Anyway, this is not about Ed Sullivan and his show as great as they both were. This is about Mick Jagger and the Greatest ROCK-N-ROLL BAND of ALL TIME, The ROLLING STONES and one Michael Philip Jagger, better known as Mick Jagger or simply Mick. When I wake up everyday, the first thing I do as I hope out of bed on my way to the bathroom is click on my RADIO to 1010 WINS NEWS the all-news radio station in New York City, New York. It’s a great radio station that along with all the big news stories of the day, locally and around the world, they also give you all sorts of interesting little stories that you might not get on network news. Anyway, as new stories were being told, the news reporter broadcast that the Rolling Stones had just postponed their up-coming concert tour do to the illness of Mick Jagger. “Oh my God, I hope Mick is OK,” I thought to myself, and wondering what it could be. What was Mick Jagger’s illness, as the reporter didn’t say. All they said was that his doctors have told Mick Jagger that he can’t do his up=coming concert, and that he must rest, and so that is all we have heard so far. Please, we all (millions of Mick Jagger’s Fans) are hoping and praying that it isn’t anything too serious, and that Mick will be getting well soon, and well enough to re-schedule the concert tour.

Of course Mick’s health is the most important thing. We all Love Mick and The Rolling Stones, and we are wishing so that Mick makes a speedy recovery, and we are so hoping that it (Mick Jagger’s illness) is nothing bad.

Ever since my friend Mireya got us tickets a few months ago to go see Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones Concert at Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, I have been quite psyched to go see the Stones. Please get well soon Mick. For it is not just that I want, would love to, or need to go see the Rolling Stones so badly in concert. No I don’t, but being able to go see Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones at a later date, will mean, that whatever your illness is Mick, that you are well, you have recovered from whatever it is that the doctors ordered you to postpone the Rolling Stones 2019 Concert Tour so you can rest and get well. Myself and millions of Mick Jagger and Rolling Stones Fans are hoping and praying that it isn’t anything too serious that is keeping Mick Jagger from going on tour now. I want to go to that re-scheduled Rolling Stones concert that I have tickets for on June 13th at Met Life, so I can see Mick & The Stones perform live in East Rutherford, the town that I sat there in my living room  on Hackensack Stree, watching the Rolling Stones (with Mick Jagger) on Television over 54 years ago. That time I watched Mick Jagger and The ROlling STones on TV, and this time I want to see Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones perform live at Met Life Stadium, in my home-town of East Rutherford, new Jersey/ God Bless You Mick, and please Get Well Soon, “I want to see you live in ER, NJ.” 

“Basta!”

Elvis Presley CLAMBAKE

 

ElvisCLAMBAKeVETTE

Elvis stops for Gas

Clambake

1967

 

Elvis’ red sports car in the film is a one-of-a-kind 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray concept car. Originally silver in color, this car was the design inspiration for the “C2” generation of Corvettes (1963 – 1967), which took the name “Stingray” from this vehicle.

Clambake was a 1967 movie starring Elvis Presley, and co-strarring Shelly Fabares, Bill Bixby, and Will Hutchins.

A wealthy young man, Scott Heyward (Elvis Presley) wants to experience life outside of his privileged upbringing. When he meets Tom Wilson (Hutchins), an earnest water-skiing instructor, Scott offers to trade places with him. As Tom warms up to the good life, Scott gets used to a less luxurious existence and falls for Dianne Carter (Shelley Fabares), who, ironically, is hoping to meet a rich man. Sticking to his humble guise, Scott tries to woo Dianne without the benefit of his true status.

I saw this movie when it came out in 1967. I was just 9 years old and at that age movies like this; James Bond 007 films, One Million Years B.C. starring the vivacious Raquel Welsh, and Sinbad The Sailor mesmerized me. It’s totally different weeing movies in theaters on the big screen when you’re an adult and when you are a child, in your mind every new and exciting new thing is so much more magical in your child mind. The older you get the feeling dissipates, but I remember still getting that feeling on my first trip to Europe, especially in Rome as a young man of 27, I still felt the magic and euphoria of a child. The place I watched mostly all these movies was Saturday and Sunday matinees at the famed Riviloi Theater in Rutherford, New Jersey,

“BYE BYE ODELL” !!!

“You Won’t Be Missed”

 

Not by This Guy, nor a Couple Million other Giant Fans who felt as I did, that Odell Beckham Jr. was a Over Rated, Over Paid, disruptive Diva, and the New York Football Giants will be much better off without him and the ridiculously insane salary they were going to pay him 93 Million Dollars over 5 years. T,hank goodness the Giants came to their senses, realized that Odell’s Cons far out weighed his Pros, they figured they’d be better off without him and his high-priced salary, no more distractions with Odell’s ridiculous antics and the Giants can get back to Winning again.

Bye Bye Odell, good luck. and Giants fans might look forward to having a winning season this year after thee Two Worst Seasons in New York Giant History. The Giants were Pitiful and embarrassing. Let’s put all that behind us, and do what the Giants do best when they’re in their Groove, and that winning NFL Football games.

Basta !

 

PS … Thanks again to the Giants for drafting Saquon Barkely last year. And Thank You Saquon for treating Giant fans to a superb Rookie Season. You were one of the few shining stars in a horrible season for the NY Giants. I was hoping the Goants would draft, and they did. And I was hoping you’d have a good year, as though college football players often play very well in college, their talents don’t always translate well to the NFL, but you did, and had a remarkable Rookie Season (Rookie of The Year). Bravo Saquon.
