I am trying to find a book for my wife that she read when she was 11 years old. It was written in the late 60s/early 70s. She cannot remember the title or the author, but it was about a nursing home, and the people there were treated badly, so they decided to set fire to the home and they all died in the fire. It was fictional. Does anybody have any idea what this book is, because she cannot remember what it was called.

It was a miniseries or one time TV event back in the eighties, about the same time they made the full color Hitchcock Presents episode about the lady who tries to sneak out of prison in a coffin. It seemed to have a similar feel to it, but in the TV movie, the woman actually gets out of jail, but then loses her freedom trying to save a little girl from plunging off a dam. That's all I remember about the movie. I can't remember if it was true or not, but it was similar to the Fugitive.

Trying to remember the artist and album from my childhood. My dad had an album - actual vinyl LP - of it. I remember only that it had a picture of a white or silver guitar (or some other stringed instrument of similar design) flying in a blue sky. I don't know if this is enough to go on or not, but I haven't the foggiest what to Google. Though I did try Googling "Guitar flying in the sky album" and variations thereof, just in case someone else tried remembering it the same way I did. But no dice.

Anyway, I'll be grateful if anyone can figure out what I'm looking for.

Edit: Found, thanks! "Brothers In Arms" by Dire Straights.

Hiya, i'm after a childs book from the early 1980s about two children who find a lost/injured bird who i think fell from a nest!

A boy and girl find the bird and look after it until either it can fly or return it to the nest.

The book had a red cover and had more pictures than text as i think it was wrote with young children in mind!

Any ideas are more than welcome

I'm looking for these books that I think were written in the 70s/80s about the history of various holidays. I only saw the ones about Christmas and Halloween, but I believe there was a book about Easter and maybe Thanksgiving. They were illustrated by the same artist, and they used a simplistic black and white style with colored accents depending on the holiday (orange for Halloween, red and green for Christmas, etc). Since it was a series I want to say the title was something really generic, like "The History of ____" or "The story of ____" (I think it was closer to the latter).

There is a quote: "Not illness, but health is the great mystery." This may not be the exact phrasing, but the gist is that we are surrounded by germs and yet we remain healthy for the most part. Would anyone know the exact quote and/or the source? Thank you.

Greetings! Just wondering if anyone could please help ID the song title and artist in the following video?



I tried Shazam, looking up the lyrics. I then tried contacting the creator of the video -- this was approximately 2.5 weeks ago. Needless to say, I am at a complete loss, so if you have any ideas, I would appreciate hearing your input greatly!

Thank you very much in advance.

Theres a movie I don't remember, like the name or even the plot. it's like a animated movie, it kind of reminds me of that toaster movie but i'm almost positive that's not it. But theres a scene that takes place at an airport, or something, and they get in this pelicans mouth and fly away and it's dark out, really starry sky. And there's this soft tune that comes on, and it's like ethereal ambient, it's lush and it's beautiful and it's sweet. I just remember how beautiful that song was and how soft and sweet it was, and ive never been able to find the scene or the movie, but i keep looking every once in a while.

In what must've been the early 2000s, there was a children's CD-ROM game that taught children the Hebrew language. I remember it had a vaguely noir feel and there were probably anthropomorphic animals involved. I don't remember much else but I hope this rings a bell!
