New Storytelling CD

Posted by on 11 Nov 2014 | Tagged as: blog

New Storytelling CD is now available!

A Friend on Sing Snap sang
“When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder” with a Davew.
It reminded me of the following:
In 2006, I did an audio cassette of “Fanny Stories”, true experiences of my mother’s mother, Fanny Crawford Gifford.
Just recently I did a story telling cd and included two of her stories.
In one of them, she tells about the death of her little sister Laura Ann when Fanny was eight and of a 4 yr old brother, Joseph, who died at age four, when Fanny was 12. Fanny had learned to play the organ and often played “When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder” at Joseph’s request as it was his favorite song. He’d sing along when he was feeling well enough to. Fanny prayed that he’d be healed if possible and felt a warm comforting feeling that all would be well. when Joseph died the next morning, she knew that all was well.

When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder is an 1893 hymn with words and music by James Milton Black. The song was inspired by the idea of The Book of Life mentioned in the Bible, and by the absence of a child in Black’s Sunday school class when the attendance was taken. The idea of someone’s being not in attendance in heaven haunted Black, and after visiting the child’s home and calling on a doctor to attend her for pneumonia, he went home and wrote the song after not finding one on a similar topic in his hymn collection. The song’s lyrics were first published in a collection titled Songs of the Soul and the song has since been translated into at least 14 languages and sung all over the world in a variety of Christian denominations.

In 1945, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill created a stir in the British press when he quoted the hymn in response to a question about when the Big Three were going to meet; stated the Winnipeg Free Press: “Mr. Churchill, in one of his somewhat puckish moods, replied that he did not know, but, he added irreverently, ‘When the roll is called up yonder, I’ll be there.’”

“I already bought your show.”

Posted by on 06 May 2014 | Tagged as: blog

“I already bought your show.”
Yesterday another person said to me when asked to consider purchasing
the 2014 audio cd, “I already bought your Video.”
Some people get confused and think that the Lincoln Ghost shows are all the
same.
I’ll try to explain the differentness and uniqueness of each show.

Lincoln’s Ghost 2009
How did a common laborer with virtually no education become a captain in
the militia, a surveyor, a store owner, a state legislator, a US congressman,
a great orator and finally the President of the United States?
What made him so special and that all possible?
Learn more about this unusual and great man from the one man show by
Jay Beacham.Feb. 12, 2009 show of Lincoln’s Ghost by Jay Beacham at the
St. George Pioneer Opera House.
In this presentation, Lincoln’s Ghost gives and overview of the life of Abe Lincoln.
Touching on most aspects of the life of the 16th President. It includes the famed
Gettysburg Address.

Lincoln’s Ghost Returns the new show for 2010.“Fellow citizens, we cannot
escape history. We will be remembered in spite of our selves.”
So said Mr. Abraham Lincoln. This performance goes over speeches and
much sage advise from the 16th president of the United States of America.
On February 12, 2010 at the St. George Pioneer Opera House Jay Beacham
presented his one man show Lincoln’s Ghost Returns.
In this presentation, Lincoln’s Ghost quotes from and reads from the political
speeches, including the 1838 speech, and from his political writings giving Lincoln’s
opinions on what makes for good government.

October of 2010, Ghost Tours in Santa Clara, Utah featured Lincoln’s Ghost.
He told about his experiences with deaths in his life, some of it in verse.
The 2011 show was a matinee on Feb, 12 at the St. George, Utah Pioneer Opera
house which was an expansion of the short five minutes Ghost Tours talk.
Thoughts on Life goes over some of Lincoln’s ancestry and the deaths of friends
and family members and others, and how these happenings affected him.
He wrote verse to express his feelings and recited the poetry of others to
express these feelings.
He also had fun with poetry.
One fine example is “The Wild Bear Chase” written by him.

Lincoln’s Ghost Tells Stories-2014 is an all new show featuring stories by the
16th President and how he used stories.

Sara Jane Lippincott said of Lincoln:
“I really think that Mr. Lincoln’s propensity for storytelling has been exaggerated by his enemies. I had once the honor of conversing with him, or rather of hearing him converse, for several minutes, and in all that time he only told four little stories.”

Carl Schurz, a Union general first met Lincoln on a train: ”I soon felt as if I had know him all my life and we had very long been close friends…He interspersed our conversation with all sorts of quaint stories, each of which had a witty point applicable to the subject at hand.”

Mr. Rutledge said, “Mr. Lincoln is a great storyteller…a rare political talent.”

Lincoln’s Ghost told wonderful stories on Feb. 22, 2014 at the Opera House in St. George, Utah.
Lincoln played which musical instruments?
Had a Duel?
Learn things you never knew about the 16th President of the USA.
Laugh and cry and be intrigued by a murder mystery written by Abe.

Who’s the ugliest guy in your County?

Posted by on 24 Feb 2013 | Tagged as: blog

I published a video blog “The Ugliest Man in Washington County, Utah.”

Check it out:

 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BDtQ8V-NL4

Published on Jan 30, 2013

 

I want to thank The Country Magazine and the author (Harold Callahan) of “The Ugliest Man in Leslie County Kentucky for the inspiration for my tale of “The Ugliest man in Washington County Utah”. The article appeared in the 1993 March/April edition. Mr. Callahan’s story is short but very funny. You need to find it and read it. There are similarities in my story but as you will discover its much different. And the guy in Leslie County may be uglier.

 

I’ve found some other ugly story ideas.  A fun one you can try is the Ugliest Man Skit that the Boy Scouts do.   Here it is:

 Scout kit found 

Ugliest Man Skit

Action

Sales Person: Step right up, Step right up and see the ugliest man on the planet for a fee of just 25 cents!

Scout 1: i can take this.( first scout walsks up, peeks under nekerchief, and faints.)

(keep doing this until you get to the last scout.)

Last Scout: i bet he’s not that ugly,” walks up, takes neckerchief of of ugly man, and then the ugly man faints making the last customer the ugliest man.

Equipment

Neckerchief, Chair, 5-6 People

Preparation

1 salesperson, 1 person to be ugly man, 3-4 customer’s, put neckerchief over ugly man’s head

 

Have fun.
