1) Elvis Presley Quotes:

"Some people tap their feet, some people snap their fingers, and some people sway back and forth. I just sorta do ▒em all together, I guess."
-Elvis in 1956, talking about his way of moving on stage.

"A lot of people have accused Elvis of stealing the black man’s music, when in fact, almost every black solo entertainer copied his stage mannerisms from Elvis."
Jackie Wilson

"You have no idea how great he is, really you don’t. You have no comprehension — it’s absolutely impossible. I can’t tell you why he’s so great, but he is. He’s sensational."
Phil Spector

"Elvis is the greatest cultural force in the twentieth century. He introduced the beat to everything, music, language, clothes, it’s a whole new social revolution — the 60’s comes from it."
Leonard Bernstein,

Lisa Marie Quotes

∙ I guess having kids when you're young, you have to grow up with them. I had my daughter at 21. They had to watch me go through stuff. It's like, "I'm still finding my way, and I made a lot of mistakes."

∙ I guess I don't get inspired to write when I'm happy. And I don't respond to music that I don't feel was honestly pulled from a genuine place. I'm very much influenced by Roger Waters and Pink Floyd.

∙ I had anything but a happy childhood. Two words: lonely and deep. I was very lonely and way too deep for someone so young.

2) Elvis Presley & other Legends

Dee Presley

While in Germany, Dee made a phone call to clerk at the Grunewald and was connected to the Presley room, when the call was answered Dee asked to speak to Elvis, much to her surprise Elvis had answered the call.

Dee introduced herself also mentioning that to Elvis that he may know her husband, who is an officer at the base. As she spoke welcoming Elvis to Germany, and offering her condolences for the loss of his mother, Gladys. Dee then lifting the sprit of the phone call, and invited Elvis and his family for a home cooked supper, one night.

Elvis asked Dee to call back on the coming Monday, as he was going to be out of town, and it would also give him a chance to speak to his daddy about it. Bill surprised Dee with a visit to the base to meet Elvis Presley, Dee was quite surprised at her husband doing this for her because like many husbands knowing their wives liked Elvis, that would be the last thing they would encourage, meeting Elvis Presley.

But as it turned out Elvis wasn’t on the post that day, Elvis was able to spend his evenings and weekends off base as long as he wasn’t on special duty. Dee picked up the phone and made the call to Elvis on the Monday as previously arranged with Elvis.

Elvis invited Dee for coffee at the hotel. When Dee arrived at the lobby in the hotel she was expecting to see Elvis waiting at the balcony. A mans voice then spoke from behind her saying, "Mrs. Stanley," as she turned to answer, she was face to face with Vernon Presley.

Vernon and Dee both stood in silence, unable to respond to one another for a short time. Dee was very nervous for she worried that she would say something silly and embarrass herself.

They then went into the main dinning room for coffee, Dee would also met Minnie Mae Presley. While they sat chatting over coffee Dee and Vernon hardly blinked as the eye contact between them was obvious something was happening. Dee felt an instant attraction to Vernon. She found herself studying Vernon’ face, seeing traces of much sadness, but that is to be expected with the loss of his wife Gladys.

But there in his sparkling blue eyes, Dee felt something in this man that was warm and loving. There were feelings Dee began having being in Vernon’s company that she had only known to have with her husband, and although it worried her the attraction towards Vernon were very real and made it difficult to ignore them.

After the coffee, Vernon walked Dee to her car. Just as she was about to get into her car, Vernon took hold of Dee putting his arm around her waist with deep eye contact while telling her how happy he was they had met. Then he said with confidence, " I’m sure we will be seeing one another again very soon."

Elvis was unable to make the coffee meeting, and it wasn’t until Dee was on her drive home, that she come to realize she hadn’t even given not meeting Elvis another thought. As Dee seemed to be preoccupied with other thoughts.

The very next day Dee received a call from Vernon Presley, arranging to all go out together, Dee was a little more at ease knowing her husband was involved in the date. Dee thought it really strange with the friendship that developed between Bill and Vernon in such a short time, it was almost instant.

4) Favourite Elvis song Lyrics for
Jail House Rock

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)

The warden threw a party in the county jail.
The prison band was there and they began to wail.
The band was jumpin and the joint began to swing.
You shouldve heard those knocked out jailbirds sing.
Lets rock, everybody, lets rock.
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin to the jailhouse rock.

Spider murphy played the tenor saxophone,
Little joe was blowin on the slide trombone.
The drummer boy from illinois went crash, boom, bang,
The whole rhythm section was the purple gang.
Lets rock, everybody, lets rock.
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin to the jailhouse rock.

Number forty-seven said to number three:
Youre the cutest jailbird I ever did see.
I sure would be delighted with your company,
Come on and do the jailhouse rock with me.
Lets rock, everybody, lets rock.
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin to the jailhouse rock.

The sad sack was a sittin on a block of stone
Way over in the corner weepin all alone.
The warden said, hey, buddy, dont you be no square.
If you cant find a partner use a wooden chair.
Lets rock, everybody, lets rock.
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin to the jailhouse rock.

Shifty henry said to bugs, for heavens sake,
No ones lookin, nows our chance to make a break.
Bugsy turned to shifty and he said, nix nix,
I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks.
Lets rock, everybody, lets rock.
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin to the jailhouse rock.

5) Party Planner tips:
"Food for Thought: Thoughts for Food Party Planning"

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

Without question, the most essential part of the party is the food.

You need to know the quantity.

You need to know what liquor to serve and the other party accessories and staples to provide.

You even must take the guests into consideration before starting out with that recipe.

Indeed, it is not that easy to plan the food for the party.

But just like anything else, all you must have is some guide to help you through.

Here are some tips that will prove helpful the next time you throw a party:

1. Remember the cardinal rule: for every person, you need a pound of food for snacks and one and a half pounds for the actual meal.

For the appetizers, prepare at least five for each guest.

Use the one and a half pounds per guest rule for the dips and the fondue.

Check out our Recipes directory for a huge selection of appetizer & party recipes.

2. For the beverages, remember that the quantity of the cocktails or beers will vary depending on the number of guests.

Consider how long the party will be, how strong the beverages are, how rowdy the crowd is before you note the quantity.

Remember to equip your party with the following: liquor, mixers, ice, cocktail napkins and enough glasses so the guests won't have to stick with their dirty ones all the time.

Our Drinks Recipes page and Wine Appreciation Guide will give you tons of beverage & cocktail recipes as well as help on how to serve wines.

3. Master recipe conversion.

This is basic stuff: a liter is equivalent to 4 and 1/4 cups, 3 teaspoons equate to a tablespoon and a pint means two cups.

See the recipes article with all the conversions, and our free cookbook has a huge conversions section for download.

4. Start as early as possible.

Plan six weeks before the actual date of the party.

Know what type of party it is, the recipes needed and other purchases you need to make.

5. Buy non-perishable items first for practical reasons.

6. Invest in kitchen equipment and other food processors.

Get mixers, blenders, food processors and choppers.

Guaranteed you will never have regrets once you buy these time-saving devices.

Our Kitchen Essentials article will provide you with details of the kitchen essentials

7. Rent glassware, cutlery, china and linen if needed.

Remember that in a party, it is not just about the food.

You need to impress, so if you do not have china available, borrow from friends or rent.

8. Know what food your guests will like.

Be sensitive to your guests' needs and wants.

It is important if you find out if any of them has food allergies.

Food party planning is half science, half art.

It needs a lot of skills, precision, creativity and fun!

Everything pays off when your guests have nothing but praises for your food and your party.
