1) Elvis Presley Quotes:

"Money is meant to be spread around, the more happiness it helps create, the more it’s worth."


"It isn’t enough to say that Elvis is kind to his parents, sends money home, and is the same unspoiled kid he was before all the commotion began. That still isn’t a free ticket to behave like a sex maniac in public."

Eddie Condon
Cosmopolitan, December 1956

"I wanted to say to Elvis Presley and the country that this is a real decent, fine boy."

Ed Sullivan
During Elvis’ third appearance on his show,
January 6, 1957

Lisa Marie Quotes

∙ I've been chased through airports with a screaming baby because the photographers are ruthless, and they want the picture.

∙ I've been through enough in my time where I've needed to outlet it. If I can do that in a way where I'm going to touch others and affect others then I'd rather do it like that.

∙ I've produced something that was mine, that I'm proud of, so it helps me hold my head up a bit higher. It's not based on some other B.S. that I'm getting attention. I get attention for the right reasons, which makes me happy with the record.

2) Elvis Presley & other Legends

Backstage With Elvis.

Elvis often enjoyed causal meetings with celebrities like Marty Allen, Tom Jones, Bobby Darin, Jack Lord, Buddy Hacket, and Jean Rivers.

In the early days Elvis also enjoyed the company of Sammy Davis Jr. and in later years enjoyed the company of Sammy Davis Jr. and his wife.

At one of Elvis’s movie nights in Memphis, he met Eric Clapton, but Elvis had no idea who Eric Clapton was, therefore being totally unaware of who Eric was Elvis had to be told by one of the boys, that Eric Clapton is known to be one of the finest blues and Rock guitarists in the world. Elvis really liked Eric.

On many occasions after Elvis’s shows in Las Vegas and Lake Tahoe, backstage in his dressing room, fellow entertainers and celebrities would call by, among the celebrities were singers like Barbra Streisand, Glen Campbell, Vicki Carr, Leon Russell, Wayne Newton and Ann-Margret, Elvis was loved and respected as a person and performer from those involved in the show Business.

Others that also held Elvis in high regard and friends that would visit him backstage were, Gregory Peck, Liza Minnelli, Kirk Douglas and Rod Steiger.

Muhammad Ali also would visit backstage after the show, Alice Copper would at times appear from nowhere or George Harrison might pop in.

Fellow entertainers and celebrities would take the opportunity when Elvis performed shows in Las Vegas to catch up after the show, because he was a warm friendly man who had the reputation of wanting them to come backstage to visit.

Often in those backstage visits, people passing through made a point to stop in and congratulate Elvis on the great show they thought he did.

Elvis was a giver, he gave to the world, warmth in his music, a true and caring man to his loved ones.

Suspicious minds is a great song, it’s a song with deep meaning.

Elvis’s comeback in 1969 was absolutely wonderful. What it must of felt like to be there √ WOW!

Words will never be enough to express my thoughts and feelings about such a wonderful man.

4) Favourite Elvis song Lyrics for
Hound Dog

This new feature of our ezine is for karaoke superstars & the fans that just like to sing-along with the King.

(words & music by jerry leiber — mike stoller)

You aint nothin but a hound dog
Cryin all the time.
You aint nothin but a hound dog
Cryin all the time.
Well, you aint never caught a rabbit
And you aint no friend of mine.

When they said you was high classed,
Well, that was just a lie.
When they said you was high classed,
Well, that was just a lie.
You aint never caught a rabbit
And you aint no friend of mine.

5) Party Planner tips: " The Perfect Bachelorette Party Planning Tips And Ideas"

This new feature of our ezine is a bonus home entertaining guide for all you party animals.

If you are planning to help a friend or a relative get through gathering a memorable activity before the actual wedding day, you may plan on organizing a bachelorette party for her.

While things are easier said than done, there are things that one needs to do in order to transform a simple gathering into an occasion which everybody will never forget.

Hosting an adult audience party is far different from a simple baby shower and anniversary party. It can be as simple or as difficult to prepare but these always depend on how you will do all the planning and organizing to make the gathering a memorable one.

Party Ideas

Games √ You just can’t spend the whole night with strippers, drinking a beer, and having your guests gobble all the food served to them but it would also be nice to engage your guests and friends into some party games.

Games are also one way of getting all the bad impressions a groom will have for his bride during the party especially when the stripping comes along. Games also infuse fun and laughter among your peers and helps loosen up tipsiness.

Neutrality √ Although strippers and alcohol have been traditionally a part of bachelor and bachelorette party activities, you also need to consider if the couples will be able to appreciate such sights.

You may do this with the permission from the honoree or should you insist, you must make sure that such an event will not turn out to be dirty and something that will not humiliate them along the way. Considering their social and spiritual background is also a must.

Invitation Etiquette √ if you are to invite someone to a bachelorette party, you must make sure that the same people are also invited on the wedding day. This is a tradition that has been practiced ever since.

More than the Usual Drinking and Stripping √ Today, more and more couples are considering other alternatives than the usual bachelorette party.

Most consider going to spa houses, doing outdoor or out-of-town activities and planning a road trip to their favorite sports game.

These are the newest additions to the more conventional bachelorette party.

Service Providers

The role of service providers who organize different events and gathering activities are crucial to a busy world like ours.

If you have enough money but do not have spare time to arrange all the details regarding your friend’s well-wishing party, you may seek the help of several service provider organizations to help you setup and plan the occasion.

Free Party Planner & Entertaining Guide with hundreds of articles & recipes for how to plan a party and special events, including a wine appreciation guide with drink recipes too. Simple party planning etiquette tips & meal ideas with help on how to cook easy recipes from our free International & Mediterranean foods cookbook download.

8) Editor’s Notes & Fun Stuff:

Some humour to put a smile on your face!
