Well, Grateful, in deed I intentionally left off a couple songs, but...

It's interesting that your on-line list of the Top 100 Billboard Hits for 1969
is a little bit different than my list of the Top 100 Billboard Hits for 1969 from the 497-page book, Billboard's Hottest Hot 100 Hits.

Resolution?  Note that the internet list specifies "Singles," which is probably the difference from the book.

Mahalo for getting me back to memory lane.

So Roy, GTH and Allin, I guess we'll see who else are members of the OSU ancien regime.
(For the record, I am 39-- plus shipping and handling.)

Just a kid in Columbus, Ohio, I was anxious having to go with my family to evening services at church on a Sunday night, knowing that I would probably miss the live (3-second delay from the moon) sensational TV coverage.  But to my relief, after getting home, they announced that there were delays and I had not missed anything.  So I went to a friend's house who had a "large" 29-inch console TV and suffered the interminable wait, filled with talking heads, until after 10:30 when we finally got to witness the unbelievable fact that men in bulky space suits were walking and bounding around on the moon!

"Ohio State said that Jeffrey Epstein had anonymously donated...  $2.5 million to the school in 2007. That money was pooled with $2.5 million from... Leslie H. Wexner to name the Les Wexner Football Complex."

What should be the new name?

Mahalo, Ramzy; insightful thoughts, articulated poetically.

I tho't the coldest season of a witch was going to be about-- the word for a male duck, who chilled the season before it even started.  Mahalo for disappointing me.

Coach Woody Hayes was a military historian. 

He knew about the extended Hundred Years' War, a series of wars between the "English" House of Plantagenet and the French House of Valois that were fought for the Kingdom of France. Evenly matched, neither side could deliver the deciding blow for decades.

Woody also knew about the devastating Thirty Years' War fought over the Holy Roman Empire of central Europe. Again the Catholic kingdoms could not defeat the Protestant princes of the German states and vice versa.

And he most certainly knew about the Seven Years' War in the mid 1700s, which drew in the major European powers and began with the French and Indian War in the American colonies.

Woody even knew about the Ten Years' War (la Guerra de los Diez Anos) fought in the mid 1800s by Cuba for independence from Spain.  It was the first of three Cuban conflicts that were undecided until 1898, when the United States joined the struggle and tipped the balance in what is called the Spanish-American War.

And so given Woody's interest in military history, the fierce rivalry between Ohio State and Michigan in the 1970s, with neither side getting the upper hand (4-5-1), was dubbed the Ten Years' War.

Not the 10-Year War.
