A Thought for Today
Without some "think time" we relinquish
our quest for knowledge to others and are forced to accept their
opinions as our own.
One Does It For Me!
No single letter this week but over the past month or so I've received a
lot of mail asking which song or poem has been Rod's most successful
over the years.
It's a tough one to answer because different songs, in particular, have
been popular in different parts of the world at different times and I
thought the best way of tackling such questions was to remind readers of
the poll we conducted here back in 2004.
The results provided a list of Top Ten favorite poems and songs as voted
for by you, the readers of this web site.
Here's a reminder of the results and from my perspective the only real
surprise was "If You Go Away" ranking so low down the list of songs.
