Welcome to Saturday 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!
Saturday 9: Chains (1962) Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

 1) The song is about a woman who is in love with her boyfriend, but still attracted to someone else. Do you believe a woman can be in love with more than one person at a time? Yes, although you didn't hear that from ME! 

2) What about the male of the species? Do you believe a man can be in love with more than one person at a time? Of Course, what's the difference. 

3) This lyrics were by Gerry Goffin and the music by Carole King. Carole was a favorite guest of David Letterman's. When she appeared on his show, he often commented on how impressed he was by her firm handshake. She credited her memorable grip to time spent milking goats on her Idaho farm. Have you poured goat milk on your cereal? Eaten goat milk yogurt or cheese? Nary one goat has ever passed through these lips... baaaaa

4) When it first came out, "Chains" was a favorite of 18-year-old George Harrison. It was at his recommendation that the Beatles added it to their early stage shows and even recorded it on their first album. When you were in high school, what was one of your favorite songs? Anything and everything Disco and Rock and Roll. I'm going to have to go with Cat Scratch Fever, on the R&R side, and Lots of Donna Summer!

5) In 1962, when this song was released, epic movies were popular on the big screen. The Longest Day was three hours long, and Lawrence of Arabiaran more than three hours and a half hours. Today's most popular movies are nowhere near that long. Do you think the average American has a shorter attention span today than he did in 1962? I believe we are SO DISTRACTED these days. Remotes flip channels and we don't stay focused. Fast Food, we drive through and pick up  supper rather than take the time to cook. Our entire lives are made up of not staying focused. 

6) In 1962, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy went on a two-week goodwill tour of India and Pakistan. She received a ceremonial "welcome necklace" in India. Made without jewels or precious metals -- just beads, sequins and paper -- it was valued by the First Lady for its delicate appearance and craftsmanship, and today it's on display at the John F. Kennedy Library. Tell us about a piece of jewelry that means a great deal to you, and why. Well, I lost them about 3 years ago down a sink, but my brother and sister in law got me gold loops back in  2000. I never ever took them off. Probably for 4 years. I LOVED those earrings. 

7) In Pakistan, Mrs. Kennedy made headlines by riding a camel. Have you ever ridden a horse, donkey, camel or elephant? Just a horse, and that didn't go so well!!

8) Also in 1962, the New York Newspaper Guild went on strike, so the nation's largest city went 114 days without a single daily paper. In 2018, how do you get your news? VIA the net.

9) Random question -- Complete this sentence: Before I go to sleep, I always
Ask God to change my heart so that I am a different person.
