Hi everyone. Hope you are all well and continue to stay that way during this global health crisis we are facing. But in addition to protecting your physical wellness, what are you doing to stay mentally healthy today?

I know we are in a serious situation, but I need a break from the gloom, doom and bullying by way of hoarding. Music has always been my refuge and watching those beautiful Italians singing to each other from their balconies reaffirmed my belief that music is the answer. So until the old normal returns, I am going to share a song I listen to that helps me escape the current state of things, if only for a few minutes each day. And if this helps anyone else, even better.
Today marks the 103rd birth anniversary of Dino Paul Crocetti, known to his friends as Dean Martin. And the world could always use a little more Dean, am I right? Today’s song went to number one on August 15, 1964. What song did it replace? “A Hard Day’s Night” by The Beatles, which held that spot for the first two weeks of that month. I love The Beatles, but my Italian pride kind of loves this little fact 🙂
Happy birthday, Dino!!!
