1) Elvis Presley Quotes:
I have no use for bodyguards, but I have a very special use for two highly trained certified public accountants.
“I don’t admire nobody but Elvis Presley. He was the sweetest most humble and nicest man you’d ever meet.”
“Everyone in rock ’n roll including myself was touched by Elvis ‘spirit,I was, and always will be a fan.”
”Well, we are definitely grown up now. If Elvis is dead we can’t be kids anymore, the effect of his life time is well marked.”
Lisa Marie Quotes
• I'm sure there's no way to escape the fact that I was heavily influenced by him. I was only around his music and him most of the early part of my life. It's impossible not to have been inspired or influenced.
• I'm the bravest that I've ever been right now. Don't ask me where I got these balls: I have no idea.
• I'm trying to have my own thing, and I don't know if it's even possible. I didn't realize so many people actually think I'm trying to be like my dad. I read comments like 'She's no Elvis.' I'm not trying to be. I never set out to be.
2) Elvis Presley & other Legends
Ann-Margret (born April 28, 1941) is a Swedish-born actress and singer. Born Ann-Margret Olsson in Valsjцbyn, Jдmtland, Sweden, she moved to the United States when young, and grew up in Winnetka, Illinois. She attended Northwestern University, and was discovered singing in a nightclub by George Burns. She's known as a sex symbol and was named the sex-kitten. Ann-Margret was also compared to Elvis Presley for her energetic performances and aptly named the female Elvis.
Ann-Margret started recording for RCA in 1961. Her recording career was not as successful as her movie career. She had a sexy singing voice which can be compared to that of Eartha Kitt or Nancy Sinatra. She scored one minor hit, "I Just Don't Understand" (it entered the Billboard Top 40 the week of August 21, 1961 and stayed 6 weeks, peaking at #17.) Her only charting album is The Beauty and the Beard (1964) which she did with trumpeter Al Hirt. The contract with RCA ended in 1966.
She got her start in Pocketful of Miracles in 1961, and followed that up with the successful film State Fair the following year. It was her starring role as the all-American teenager in Bye Bye Birdie which made her a star. When she filmed Viva Las Vegas with Elvis Presley the two began an affair that received considerable attention from the gossip columnists in the various media. The reports led to a showdown with a very worried Priscilla Beaulieu. In her 1985 book, "Elvis and Me" (Elvis and Me#The Ann-Margret affair), Priscilla Beaulieu Presley recounts this situation and the difficulty when Ann-Marget tried to "cut her off at the pass" with a press announcement that she and Elvis were engaged to be married.
Although he ended the affair, Presley remained a friend and continued to send her flowers at the opening of each of her stage show appearances until he died. Of all the Hollywood starlets he had worked with or had a relationship with, Ann-Marget was the only one to attend his funeral.
In 1963, Ann-Margret guest-starred, in animated form, in an episode of Hanna-Barbera's The Flinstones as "Ann-Margrock". By this time, she had arrived as an American cultural phenomenon.
Ann-Margret & Elvis in Viva Las Vegas In 1971, she starred in Mike Nichols's Carnal Knowledge, marking a change from her sex-kitten musical roles. She garnered a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. The following year, while performing at Lake Tahoe, Nevada, she fell 22 feet from the stage and suffered injuries which put her out of commission for several months.
In 1975 she starred as the title character's mother in Tommy, and received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress. In addition, she was nominated for ten Golden Globe Awards, winng five times including for Best Actress for "Tommy." As well, Ann-Margret's recordings earned her five Emmy Award nominations.
She also did a string of successful TV specials, starting with The Ann-Margret Show for NBC in 1968.

4) Favourite Elvis song Lyrics for
This new feature of our ezine is for karaoke superstars & the fans that just like to sing-along with the King.
(words & music by Bill Strange — Scott Davis)
Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind
Memories, sweetened thru the ages just like wine
Quiet thought come floating down
And settle softly to the ground
Like golden autumn leaves around my feet
I touched them and they burst apart with sweet memories,
Of holding hands and red bouquets
And twilight trimmed in purple haze
And laughing eyes and simple ways
And quiet nights and gentle days with you
Memories, pressed between the pages of my mind
Memories, sweetened thru the ages just like wine,
Memories, memories, sweet memories
5) Party Planner tips:
This new feature of our ezine is a bonus home entertaining guide for all you party animals.
“Quick and Easy Christmas Planning Tips”
It's best to plan a Christmas party a few weeks ahead of time.
Don't leave it to the last minute, like your Christmas shopping, because chances are that you will not be able to pull off the spectacular Christmas party that you've been planning for if you do this.
A great party takes a lot of effort and organization. Now to make this task easier, here are some tips:
1. You have to decide first what type of Christmas party you want to have, and where you want to throw it. If you decide to hold it at a venue, you have to make reservations ahead of time.
2. If you're going to have your Christmas party at home, go crazy with the decorations! Christmas trees are a must. Nothing reminds you of Christmas better than a Christmas tree.
This will be the centerpiece of your party. This will set a festive mood, and get everyone into the holiday spirit.
3. Make a guest list. You don't want to spread the word out on your party just via word of mouth. Your party will fall into utter chaos, especially if some unwanted guests suddenly come streaming into your house.
Also, organizing a guest list will help you estimate how much food you need to prepare. This is especially helpful if you are thinking of hiring a caterer.
4. Once you've made a guest list, start sending out those invitations. Send them out early, so your guests will have time to juggle their busy schedules.
5. Don't forget your entertainment. If you're just planning to throw a casual party for your friends, then you can just do some karaoke.
For those who are thinking of throwing a more formal party, you might want to hire the services of a DJ, just to keep the excitement going all throughout the party.
6. Buy tons and tons of food! There's a reason why people pack in the pounds during the holiday. During this time, people like to eat. They treat themselves and leave the dieting for the New Year.
If you feel that your cooking is not up to this task, it would be best to avail the help of a catering service. This way, you don't have to do all the hard work!
This also leaves you more time to take care of those last minute preparations.
7. Finally, when throwing a party always remember to have a blast!
With these simple tips your Christmas party will become a success…and oh yes, don't forget to hang some mistletoe!

7) Elvis Presley Trivia:
Elvis Aron Presley was born in a two-room house in East Tupelo, Mississippi to Vernon Elvis Presley and Gladys Love Smith. His twin brother, Jesse Garon Presley, was stillborn, thus leaving him to grow up as an only child. Elvis was given the middle name of Aron, with only one A, so he would always be a part of his brother Jesse Garon.
The surname Presley was Anglicized from the German Pressler during the Civil War. His ancestor Johann Valentin Pressler emigrated to North America in 1710. Pressler first settled in New York, but later moved to the South.
8) Editor’s Notes & Fun Stuff:
In kindergarten your idea of a good friend was the person who let you have the red crayon when all that was left was the ugly black one.
In first grade your idea of a good friend was the person who went to the bathroom with you and held your hand as you walked through the scary halls.
In second grade your idea of a good friend was the person who helped you stand up to the class bully.
In third grade your idea of a good friend was the person who shared their lunch with you when you forgot yours on the bus.
In fourth grade your idea of a good friend was the person who was willing to switch square dancing partners in gym so you wouldn't have to be stuck do-si-do-ing with Nasty Nick or Smelly Susan.
In fifth grade your idea of a friend was the person who saved a seat on the back of the bus for you.
In sixth grade your idea of a friend was the person who went up to Nick or Susan, your new crush, and asked them to dance with you, so that if they said no you wouldn't have to be embarrassed.
In seventh grade your idea of a friend was the person who let you copy the social studies homework from the night before that you had.
In eighth grade your idea of a good friend was the person who helped you pack up your stuffed animals and old baseball but didn't laugh at you when you finished and broke out into tears.
In ninth grade your idea of a good friend was the person who would go to a party thrown by a senior so you wouldn't wind up being the only freshman there.
In tenth grade your idea of a good friend was the person who changed their schedule so you would have someone to sit with at lunch.
In eleventh grade your idea of a good friend was the person who gave you rides in their new car, convinced your parents that you shouldn't be grounded, consoled you when you broke up with Nick or Susan, and found you a date to the prom.
In twelfth grade your idea of a good friend was the person who helped you pick out a college/university, assured you that you would get into that college/university, helped you deal with your parents who were having a hard time adjusting to the idea of letting you go...
At graduation your idea of a good friend was the person who was crying on the inside but managed the biggest smile one could give as they congratulated you.
The summer after twelfth grade your idea of a good friend was the person who helped you clean up the bottles from that party, helped you sneak out of the house when you just couldn't deal with your parents, assured you that now that you and Nick or you and Susan were back together, you could make it through anything. Helped you pack up for university and just silently hugged you as you looked through blurry eyes at 18 years of memories you were leaving behind, and finally on those last days of childhood, went out of their way to give you reassurance that you would make it in college as well as you had these past 18 years, and most importantly sent you off to college knowing you were loved.
Now, your idea of a good friend is still the person who gives you the better of the two choices, holds your hand when you're scared, helps you fight off those who try to take advantage of you, thinks of you at times when you are not there, reminds you of what you have forgotten, helps you put the past behind you but understands when you need to hold on to it a little longer, stays with you so that you have confidence, goes out of their way to make time for you, helps you clear up your mistakes, helps you deal with pressure from others, smiles for you when they are sad, helps you become a better person, and most importantly loves you!
Pass on to those friends of the past, and those of the future...and those you have met along the way... [crying yet? oh there's more]
Thank you for being a friend. No matter where we go or who we become, never forget who helped us get there.
There's never a wrong time to pick up a phone or send a message telling your friends how much you miss them or how much you love them.
You know who you are, pass it on to someone who you want to remind.
If you love someone, tell them.
Remember always to say what you mean.
Never be afraid to express yourself.
Take this opportunity to tell someone what they mean to you. Seize the day and have no regrets.
Most importantly, stay close to your friends and family, for they have helped make you the person that you are today and are what it's all about anyway.
Pass this along to your friends. Let it make a difference in your day and theirs.
The difference between expressing love and having regrets is that the regrets may stay around forever.
