*** JOTW Rock and Roll Trivia Quiz:

This band's name refers to Australian Aborigines sleeping in holes. This band had 13 gold albums and recorded 21 Billboard Top 40 hits, seven of which went gold, and three U.S. number one songs. From 1969-1974, nobody had more Top 10 hits, moved more records, or sold more concert tickets. This band enjoyed major success covering songs by other artists such as Randy Newman, Laura Nyro, Hoyt Axton, and Elton John and Bernie Taupin, as well as a hit from a musical. As recently as 2008 they were still performing 85 concerts a year. They performed this past weekend at the Moondog Coronation Ball in Cleveland.

*** Last week’s Trivia Quiz:

Aw, man, I was one musician off of the rock trivia! I skipped right over ELO to the Wilburys, but both groups I love. ELO was highly instrumental (pardon the pun) in my appreciation of the Olivia Newton-John movie “Xanadu.” No, it won no Oscars, as I remember. Yes, the acting truly generally stunk. Even Gene Kelly couldn't help it. But the music was really magic. OK, there I go again, completely unintentionally punny.

I have a suggestion for full-time unemployed writers who, like me, aren't living near any of those writing jobs you have listed. I was a full-time unemployed writer, sitting sadly on the sidelines as newspapers began tightening their staffs. I'm still sad because it looks as if I will never get another full-time newspaper job, BUT – I AM now a full-time part-time freelancer working for two newspapers in my area. They don't pay benefits (thank you, U.S. Navy retiree benefits) and my 401k is about to go into CD-land, but they do pay something, I keep my hand in and there is work. And it all began with a phone conversation about an online crossword with one and a search for the public library with the other.

The JOTW alternative job? Just the title “Cut Up Supervisor” made me look. I thought I might be qualified … (Chances are if it's Maryland, it's Frank Perdue-land on the Eastern Shore.)

Anyway, love the listings, drool over some of the jobs and have no plans at the moment of moving back into the weather or the pressure. Take care and take photos in India. I found a batch of negatives my father took during the war (WWII, that is) and there was a shot of the Taj, a little off beam, but still quite lovely. There were lots of temple shots from Burma and plenty of him and his fellow soldiers in camp near New Delhi, one of him holding a fish that was nearly as big as he was (he was quite skinny then). It's a good thing he held it in front of him – he seemed not to be wearing any trunks! Sounds more like Your Next Step …

(Do ya get the association with The Move? Do Ya?)

Lemme think on it … Maybe, maybe.

(I'll explain. The Move was a group in the UK that had a minor hit in the U.S. called Do Ya. It's one of my faves. The Move branched out with a symphonic project they called ELO. ELO took off, moving The

You can listen to both on Rhapsody or some similar service and you can hear how similar they are.

I thought ELO sounded great when they first came out. But those guys running around with cellos and violins seemed rather silly.)

A-ha, she says with a lightbulb! It probably slipped right through my mind. Yeah, rockers with stringed instruments that require bows are pretty weird, but my hubby loves classic rock played classically. He has a bunch of albums and CDs by the Royal Philharmonic. I've probably heard The Move and not known who it was or maybe thought it was ELO. I rarely paid attention to who

played what unless I really loved the sound and then I'd find their albums. Or when I was DJ-ing on AFRTS. I can get in the neighborhood of some bands now, but not always. It's usually a “They sound like …” I can usually tell what symphony orchestra it is, though, from the 60-80s and tell you who the conductor was.

Hi Ned!

Thanks for sending me your job listings, but I have a couple quick questions: Is there any way to put the newsletter in HTML format so it's easier to read? Secondly, do you ever post freelance writer/PR postings? I am now working as a freelance PR consultant as well as a freelance/writer editor, in addition to keeping my eyes open for full-time work in California. Hope all is well with you! -Cheryl

(Tell me how to do that. I don't know how, but I'm sure it could be done. I would be willing to do so if it didn’t take more time.)

I haven't a clue, as I'm not a tekkie! If you know anyone who is good with computers – i.e., a software engineer or Website designer – hey could tell you in a heartbeat. Maybe it'll take tooo much time, but it was just a thought. It would make your newsletter more scan-able for everyone.
