Claire–Tied Up In Knots!

Test your reportorial skills. Can you solve this acute case from Elaine Lewis?

See if you can untie this painful mystery!


And now, as promised, here is Shana with a full report on The Eagles concert that took place July 16th at the Wells Fargo Center.  Take it away, Shana!

Right. Full report. um…well. it was a great show and a spiritual experience.

It was?

I wish the Rolling Stones concert hadn’t been so expensive, because being there at the Eagles concert made me think about how impressive the Stones concert must’ve been and I wasn’t there to see it.

Have you noticed that no matter what we’re talking about, we’re talking about The Rolling Stones?????

Watching the videos on youtube isn’t the same. You know how much I was dying to go and Mick, Keith, and Charlie are getting older. I think Ronnie is the youngest. By the way Mick Jagger just turned 70 this year. Yay!  Look its Mick Jagger and Jimmy Fallon from “Saturday Night Live”!!!


May I assume that the Eagles “full report” is over?

Can you imagine me clapping like a crazy person at a Stones show?!!

Do I have to?

Anyway back to the Eagles, we had some parking problems.

I’ll say we did!

I think we were parked in a corner somewhere.  We couldn’t find our car, we walked all around the parking lot….  I guess our seats were ok.

Really?  This was our view of the stage!


But wasn’t it worth it to hear Timothy B. Schmidt do “I Can’t Tell You Why”?

Totally worth it!  Please watch!


It was kind of a disappointment that they didn’t do “Outlaw Man”.

Probably because they did “Desperado” instead.

…but it was still a good show. Remember how you wanted to leave when the encore started?

It was our only hope of getting out of the building alive!

I know you wanted to avoid the stampede, but Robin Murphy would have been ashamed of you for walking out on “Hotel California”!

You’re not going to tell him, are you?

So how’s that for a full report? Did I leave anything out?

In a word, Yes!  You failed to mention the long lines to the ladies’ room!  But that’s OK, because we really do have to start the Quiz!

Next show, I think we should see Styx at the Borgata, and then in October, Hall and Oates are at the Tower Theater….

Can we please stop talking about concerts I can’t afford for two seconds?

Before we start the quiz, to celebrate the birthday (albeit a month late) of the legendary Mick Jagger, I present this, “Wandering Spirit”, from 1993:

Alright, it’s actually surprisingly OK.  Good guitar arrangement.

That’s what made me like it in the first place!  And our case this month?

I’m sure you’ll like that too!  It’s short and to the point, like a good guitar arrangement!  I give you now, our friend Claire, who had a splinter under her nail in June; but now, she’s all tied up in knots!


Hi, Elaine, I just thought you would like to know…. I woke up yesterday with an awful muscle knot by my right shoulder blade that was somehow connected to things all the way up the side of my neck and my shoulder muscle and it was the worst thing imaginable; and as the day wore on, there were times when it was so bad I couldn’t turn my head to the right at all. I took a hot shower at one point to try to help it, and it was great but I couldn’t stay in the shower all day (a pity!) so I got out and it tightened right back up again, making me really exhausted and cranky from the pain. I honestly don’t know how people live with chronic pain. I kept telling myself I should slow down and do some yoga but I had no patience for it in the moment. I finally made a small remedy solution bottle of ____________________30c in 4 oz of water and took a sip every 15-20 minutes over the course of an hour+ with 5 succussions before each dose. The knot loosened and then all the muscles just felt sore like they had been pretzeled up all day. I went to bed in the most comfortable position I could find and woke up the next morning completely pain-free!!


That’s it, people; do you know what the remedy was?  Write to me at [email protected] and we’ll have the answer here for you in September.  OMG!  It’s August!  Do you know what that means?  It means I get to play “See You in September” again by The Happenings!

I can see why, it’s such a great song!

I wait all year to be able to say this.  Here they are now, The Happenings, with “See You In September”:


Bye-bye, so long, farewell…..
