I went to visit my girlfiend at college in May 1971. Much to my surprise, we ended up breaking up. Wounded, I ended up visiting my friend Steve in Poughkeepsie, and he told me about this singer/guitarist named Bonnie Raitt, who he had seen perform. He was really wowed by her, when when I heard her Give It Up album the next year, so was I.
What is it about me and female Scorpio women musicians vis a vis my romantic relationships? lang, Mitchell, and now Raitt. And I never realized it until this month. More self-discovery on the blog.
Artist/Band: Bonnie Raitt (b. 11/8/1949) Are you male or female: Nobody’s Girl Describe yourself: Rock Steady How do some people feel about you: Something to Talk About How do you feel about yourself: I Feel the Same Describe what you want to be: Good Enough Describe how you live: Road’s My Middle Name Describe how you love: Love Sneakin’ Up on You Share a few words of wisdom: Give It Up or Let Me Go; You’re Gonna Get What’s Coming
I already have, at 6:10 a.m. Pretty much straight line Working Families and Green parties, plus some Democratic judges. New York allows for cross-endorsements.

What Did You Learn In School Today
What did you learn in school today, dear little boy of mine? I learned that Washington never told a lie I learned that soldiers seldom die I learned that everybody’s free That’s what the teacher said to me And that’s what I learned in school today That’s what I learned in school
What did you learn in school today, dear little boy of mine? I learned that policemen are my friends I learned that justice never ends I learned that murderers die for their crimes Even if we make a mistake sometimes And that’s what I learned in school today That’s what I learned in school
What did you learn in school today, dear little boy of mine? I learned that war is not so bad I learned about the great ones we have had We fought in Germany and in France And someday I might get my chance And that’s what I learned in school today That’s what I learned in school
What did you learn in school today, dear little boy of mine? I learned that our government must be strong It’s always right and never wrong Our leaders are the finest men So we elect them again and again And that’s what I learned in school today That’s what I learned in school
