Ideally, we could pick a point in time where we feel we may have made a wrong decision and if go back to a place in time where we could change that decision. That, in fact, could be a GAME CHANGER.

The end of the handshake, as we know it

greetings around the world

Types of greetings around the world

Two businesswomen in suits shaking hands and smiling.

a firm handshake

It has been a long time coming, but it appears we are near to the end of the handshake, as we know it.

a firm handshake

One of the main factors  that seems to have brought about the demise of the handshake, as we know it,  may be all the bugs and viruses that have been going around recently. The handshake is being perceived as a medium that can spread germs

Which greeting is the cleanest?

Which greeting is the cleanest?

The next obvious step is the  fist bump, but the question is, if someone extends their hand to you for a handshake, do you respond with a fist bump, just to avoid some nasty germs?

 I think that the fist bump, will gradually catch on, even with  mainstream business circles. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that if you will get the job if you fist bump someone who is extending their hand to you expecting a handshake.

Louis Thomas Jordan (July 8, 1908 – February 4, 1975) was a pioneering American musician, songwriter and bandleaderwho enjoyed his greatest popularity from the late 1930s to the early 1950s. Known as “The King of the Jukebox“, he was highly popular with both black and white audiences in the later years of the swing era. In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked him no. 59 on its list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. Jordan died in Los Angeles, California, from a heart attack on February 4, 1975. He is buried at Mt. Olive Cemetery in his wife Martha’s hometown of St. Louis, Missouri.

Choo Choo Ch’boogie – Louis Jordan

Choo Choo Ch’Boogie” was written by Vaughn Horton, Denver Darling, and Milt Gabler. The song was recorded in January 1946 by Louis Jordan & His Tympany Five. It topped the Rhythm and Blues charts for 18 weeks from August 1946, a record only equalled by one other hit, “The Honeydripper.” The record was one of Jordan’s biggest ever hits with both black and white audiences, peaking at number seven on the national chart  and provided an important link between blues and country music, foreshadowing the development of “rock and roll” a few years later.  Although “Choo Choo Ch’Boogie” is now seen as epitomising the style known as jump blues, it was written by white songwriters whose background was in country and western music. The song is credited to Darling, Horton and Gabler. Denver Darling (1909–1981) was a “hillbilly” guitarist and songwriter,

Louis Jordan – Choo Choo Ch’Boogie Lyrics

Heading for the station with a pack on my back,

I’m tired of transportation in the back of a hack
I just love the rhythm of the clickety clack
I hear the whistle blowing, see the smoke from the stack
Pal around with democratic fellas named Mac
Take me right back to the track, Jack

Choo choo, choo choo ch’boogie
Whoo whoo, whoo whoo ch’boogie
Choo choo, choo choo ch’boogie
Take me right back to the track, Jack

You reach your destination and alas and alack
You need some compensation to get back in the black
You take a morning paper from the top of the stack
And read the situation from the front to the back
The only job that’s open needs a man with a knack
Put me right back in the rack, Jack

Choo choo, choo choo ch’boogie
Whoo whoo, whoo whoo ch’boogie
Choo choo, choo choo ch’boogie
Take me right back to the track, Jack

I’m gonna settle down by the railroad track
To live a life of Riley in a beat down shack
When I hear the whistle I can peep through the crack
And see the train rollin’ when it’s ballin’ the Jack
For I just love the rhythm of the clickety clack
Take me right back to the track, Jack

Choo choo, choo choo ch’boogie
Whoo whoo, whoo whoo ch’boogie
Choo choo, choo choo ch’boogie
Take me right back to the track, Jack

Take me right back to the track, Jack

I believe that it is very important to try to help those in the local community who need a helping hand and that is why whenever we have extra cans of food or bags of chips or crackers, we donate them to the local food bank in our area. Many churches and humanitarian organizations also accept food and supplies and it is always a good gesture to donate to those who are in need..
