From the FMS Global News Desk & jeannehambeton77

Maybe you got carried away in real ‘Yankee Doodle’ style yesterday and had a great time. Hope you do not have a hangover and a headache as I have a real American treat for you.

My little celebration for yesterday included an indulgence, of which I loved every minute, with two grand American gentlemen doing their stuff as only they know how.

They helped me celebrated July 4. I did not have any Bourbon but I enjoyed several nice gins and tonics with only two slices of lemon, and celebrated our Independence Day with these two great fellows.

I was even motivated enough to stand up (briefly) to join in a little with their expertise. Boy was that a good way to spend an American birthday.

If you fancy a brief three and a half minute trip down Memory Lane with a bit of “I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy” thrown in, I hope you enjoy this in true American style.

Sit down with a glass of your favourite tipple and run this video through and think of the old old days. I enjoyed my treat so much I ran it several times and had several G&Ts on the journey. Not feeling too well today – that is why I am late. Sorry. Must be something in the water, or the tonic.

Hope you lovely folk from the U S of A had a happy birthday and like my little treat and trip down Memory Lane. All will be revealed when you click the link. Have fun.


Almost forgot I must thank my good friends Derek Hooper, another journalist and his friends from New Zealand Hans & Diane for finding this great short film and sharing it with me so I can share with you. A big big thanks.

I believe it was the only time they danced together according to the Internet. This famous dance took place in 1955. No wonder they look so fit. James Cagney was born in 1899 and died in 1986 at the age of 87. So he was 56 when he did this dance.

Bob Hope was born in 1903 and lived to be 100. He died of pneumonia in 2003 just three months after his 100th birthday. Bob Hope would have been 53 when he dance with James Cagney. Perhaps dancing and activity is the answer to a long life.

Hooray for computers. We might never had seen this delightful film without the invention of computers. And if I was writing to the States now my letter would have to catch an aeroplane and take much longer to reach USA and only by read by one person. Of course it could be that only person out there might read this. I will keep trying……

On reflection it is staggering just how much we have moved on since mobile phones and computers. So much has changed in the last 35 years but what about the next 35 years? Will the world be your oyster? Food of thought. Talk soon. Hope you had a good day yesterday. Jeanne
