Lawrence THE HANDLE, which varies in length according to the height of its user, and in some cases is made by that user to his or her specifications, is like most of the other parts of the tool in that it has a name and thus a character of its own. I call it the snath, as do most of us in the UK, though variations include the snathe, the snaithe, the snead, and the sned.

Looking trim and chic in some artfully faded denim, one sleeve rolled up to not get in the way of his guitar playing, Bruce opened the evening with a vibrant rendition of "This Hard Land.
Although after a normal Springsteen tour, Broadway probably feels like a vacation.
When the applause had died down, with obvious relish, Bruce launched into the first joke of his segment. My jokes are not comedian jokes, so you've got to cut them a little slack," he prefaced his first comedy bit. A piano player who's looking for work goes into an agent's office.

Just don't mention the titles. People are in tears, they're holding each other, they're holding each other's hands.
He takes a break to go to the bathroom, he takes a leak, he comes out. I guess on the way out he forgot to zip himself up, and the mother of the bride comes up and says, "Sir, do you know that your penis is hanging out of your pants?!
Patti took her leave stage right, as Bruce looked to the other side and said, "C'mon out! Bruce's enjoyment in being matched by Church was obvious as was the reverseand Church's presence on the song added the right touch of exuberance and restored its rightful rockabilly heritage, without some of the comedic exaggeration that's been a hallmark of the song in recent years.

Rooted in the gospel song "This Train" and The Impressions' gospel-soul hit "People Get Ready," "Land of Hope and Dreams" imagines a communal train where all are welcome — saints, sinners, whores, gamblers, thieves, lost souls, fools, kings, the brokenhearted — as it heads off to unknown future.
Springsteen has performed "Land of Hope and Dreams" often for benefit concerts and political rallies, including campaign stops for Barack Obama in the presidential election. It seems no coincidence, then, that he's released it on the eve of the midterm elections, and into the teeth of a violent and divisive time in American life.
