Just like the old movie story - a group of friends got together to “put on a show” for the church fun fair way back in 1992. They presented a program of Cole Porter music. The 3-day gig stretched into many years and many shows as the phone never stops ringing. Everyone wants to book this group for a retirement home, church dinner, women’s club, lodge meeting, holiday party.
After what we all have been been through this past year some inspirational music would be just the ticket for getting back into the swing of entertainment in 2021.
The Original Class Act used our time during Covid shutdown to add a new program to our repertoire. We have chosen music from Broadway, movies and religious collections to comprise our latest offering - Let Us Lift You Up.
The program includes medleys from The Sound of Music, Godspell, Sister Act,
Jesus Christ Superstar and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
We’ll do the Celtic Woman hit “O America,” The Diamond Rio version of “In God We Still Trust,” Chris Mann’s “Roads,” and the Celine Dion/Josh Groban duet of “The Prayer.”
Solos include “You Raise Me Up,” “God Help The Outcasts” and “Scarlet Ribbons.”
There will be an opportunity for everyone to sing along to “Battle Hymn of the Republic,” “God of Our Fathers,” “Lord of All Hopefulness” and “The Lord’s Prayer.”
We’ll close out the show with some of our personal favorites: “El Shaddai,” “All God’s Creatures,” “Hallelujah,” “Child of Peace” and “May The Good Lord Bless and Keep You.”
The program is suitable for outdoor venues if your Covid restrictions are still being enforced.
The Original Class Act is available for both daytime and evening performances on weekdays and weekends.
We come with our own sound system.
To schedule a performance of Let Us Lift You Up with The Original Class Act, you may phone director Pat Condelli at 724-339-0920 or email to email@example.com

And no - it did not get the award for the treatment of worms in horses. It was for the treatment of infectious diseases.
Ivermectin (IVM) was hailed as a “multifaceted drug deployed against some of the world's most devastating tropical diseases.” It was used off lable.
And because my dog Orielle Elizabeth had the MDR1 Recessive gene I have a lot of knowledge about this drug.
Ori had a totally screwed up immune system and there were more than 62 medicines she was not permitted to have. They would have killed her. Ivermectin was one of them. And unfortunately Ivermectin is a component of medicines that she needed for heart worm, and flea and tick protection.
Caring for her during her all-too-short 10 years of life I researched Ivermectin continually. I wanted to know everything about this medicine. I learned that it had many uses - not just for animals, but for human beings as well.
And so I was shocked when a newsletter subscriber messaged me and said I should stop promoting it as a “cure” for Covid 19. She said that Ivermectin was causing many people to flood hospital emergency rooms because of bad reactions too this ”horse wormer.”
I asked where she got this information. She sent me a story she saw on Face Book from the magazine “Rolling Stone.” The story said people were lined up at a hospital in rural Oklahoma and that gunshot victims were being turned away because the Ivermectin overdose people were taking up all the spots. There was a photo with the story. The people in the photo were wearing hats, gloves, heavy jackets and some had on boots.
What??? Boots? Gloves? Hats?? It was probably 90 degrees in that city on the day of the alleged photo. Also I knew that hunting season had not yet begun in Oklahoma and it certainly was not a hotbed of crime. Why were so many gunshot victims going to this hospital?
My friend said she also heard the story from Rachel Maddow on CNN and Joy Reid on MSNBC. Then I found an AP story that said 70% of people who were “eating horse paste” were hospitalized.
I smelled FAKE news. And so the reporter in me sprung into action. First I checked the weather report …. my guess was right. Highs in the 90s; lows in the 80s. Then I looked up the phone number of the Oklahoma hospital and called.
I asked if the story was true. The person who answered the phone read a statement - she said they had received other phone calls: “NHS Sequoyah has not treated any patients due to complications related to taking Ivermectin. This includes not treating any patients for Ivermectin overdose.” She also noted that the doctor quoted in the story hadn’t worked at the hospital in more than two months.
The hospital in the AP story said there were zero - zip - nada hospitalizations from Ivermectin toxicity.
I informed my subscriber that this was just another one of hundreds of examples of FAKE news like the Russia collusion baloney, and the Jan. 6 “insurrection.” Haven’t heard from her since.
I am not a doctor - just a former paramedic. I would never presume to tell anyone to either take the vaccine or not. Or to take Ivermectin or any other medicine. But I will tell you that if you research Ivermectin as Idid and believe that it could help you in the event you might get Covid 19 you can easily purchase this medicine on line.
A friend ordered Ivermectin from https://buyivermectinforhumans.us.
She said it took about two weeks to come. It was $90 for a “consultation” which was just filling out the form and another $124 for the medication. She received twenty 3mg tablets, with the prescription for her (figuring age, height, weight, medical info) to take 12 mg the first day and the 3rd day then one 14 days later and again 14 days later.
Another friend ordered Ivermectin from India. She received 200 12 mg tablets for $165. They took a couple of weeks to get here. If you look up Ivermectin and India on line you’ll come up with many links.
In conclusion of this discussion I’d like add a note to the cretins who are demanding that people who do not get vaccinated and end up getting Covid 19 should be denied hospital treatment. OK. I agree. Let’s not treat what they call ”stupid” people. That should include people who drink and drive and get injured or kill people in car crashes. And people who smoke and get lung cancer and infect others with their noxious fumes. And people who overeat and get diabetes.
No hospital treatment for anyone who is stupid …. and that should include people who make such ridiculous comments and also those who report FAKE NEWS.
As I remember the first dinner we had withy brother-in-law Albert Biggs…here is his recipe for Chicken Parmigiana. Al is a wonderful cook.
4 chicken breasts, about 8 oz each, sliced in half lengthwise to make 8
3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp butter, melted (or olive oil)
3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
1 cup marinara sauce
How To Make It
* Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray a large baking sheet lightly with Pam.
* Combine breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese in a bowl.
* Melt butter — lightly brush the butter onto the chicken, then dip into breadcrumb mixture. Place on baking sheet and repeat with the remaining chicken.
* Lightly spray a little more oil on top and bake for 25 minutes.
* Remove from oven, spoon 1 Tbsp sauce over each piece of chicken and top each with 1 1/2 tbsp of shredded mozzarella cheese.
* Bake 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
You can a a few pieces of cheese to decorate the dish.

If you live in Pennsylvania and have a story about 2020 election fraud to tell - now’s your chance to speak up. The Senate Intergovernmental Operations Committee is scheduling public hearings to begin next week to get to the bottom of what happened. The Committee is inviting state residents who witnessed or were personally affected by election improprieties to share their stories, complete affidavits and potentially testify at public hearings. Pennsylvanians can submit what they witnessed here.
I sent mine fraud observations in the minute I got the email. Dropped everything, began writing and hit “send.”
