Monday, February 11, 2019 – Classical Flights

Monday, February 11, 2019 – Classical Flights

Good Morning, Class. Welcome to Classical Flights 101. Today we look at three famous composers who have a masterpiece with the word “flight” in one of their works. At the end of class you will select which flight you like the most and attempt to play or complete at least one of the listed flight.

Are there questions? No, you do not have to wait because it is five o’clock somewhere.

Flight of the Valkyries by Richard Wilhelm Wagner. Ten minutes of scary.


Flight of the Bumblebee by Rimsky Korsakov. Three and half minutes of anxiety.


Flight of the Margaritas by Jimmy Buffet. A lifetime of relaxation.

Mad Taco weekend Appy Hour – show the app on your phone and the Flight of Margaritas is $8.99.


Thursday, July 2, 2015 – A Throw-Back Thursday Question

Thursday, July 2, 2015 – A Throw-Back Thursday Question

A Freshman knows not, and knows not that he knows not.

A Sophomore knows not, and knows that he knows not.

A Junior knows, but knows not that he knows.

But a Senior knows, and knows that he knows.

 Whose yearbook were those lines from? It was used to denote class distinctions.  I thought it was the Magnolia High School 1966 yearbook, which would be yours, Ms. Wax, but alas no.  Perhaps, the MHS Bulldog of 1965? Pat?

Maybe it was at J.L. McCullough – calling all yearbook people – Stephanie R., T. Manning. Conroe High? In The Flare?

Maybe it was not even in a yearbook and the lines are from one of those “…flashbacks they all warned us about…” (Jimmy Buffet – Meet Me in Margaritaville). Not to be confused with “we are the people our parents warned us about…” (IBID).

Nevertheless, I have used it in many speeches and presentations and I would really like to know the source. It describes so many things. I like to think of the lines now describing Life Stages.
