(music video) Leon Patillo: ‘The Sky is the Limit’ — “You can be a pioneer / Just don’t be afraid of the new frontiers”

How do you look upon yourself?
Are you always looking down?
Down, down, down on the ground
Well, hold onto your dreams
It’s not as hard as it seems
If you try, you can do most anything

Whoa, the sky is the limit
You can reach beyond the stars
The sky is the limit
Let yourself go
Let the river flow

How do you look upon yourself?
Are you always behind?
Way, way, way, way behind
The possibility is here
You can be a pioneer
Just don’t be afraid of the new frontiers

Because the sky is the limit
You can reach beyond the stars
The sky is the limit
Let yourself go
Let the river flow

Many people have given up
They say the pressure is too hard to bear
Don’t have to do it all by yourself
Someone cares, up there

No one else but you
Can do exactly what you do
So let your talent come bursting right on through

Because the sky is the limit
You can reach beyond the stars
The sky is the limit
Let yourself go
Let the river flow
Just let yourself go
Let the river flow

(music video) Leon Patillo: ‘Love Calling’

I remember playing the cassette of this album, “The Sky is the Limit” a number of times while attending seminary during the spiritually dry second time.

Earth people, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I am not alien,
This is love calling, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I want to be your friend.

I have been around you since the world began,
I have even visited you and walked upon your land,
I have known your leaders down through history,
Some have made the effort to communicate with me.

Earth people, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I am not alien,
This is love calling, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I want to be your friend.

I don’t want to harm you; it’s the last thing on my mind,
I just want to share my love with all of mankind,
When your heart is broken, and the world has been unkind, I’ll pick up the pieces and I’ll give you peace of mind.

(this is love)
(this is love calling Earth)
(come in, come in, come in)
(this is love)
(this is love calling Earth)
(come in, come in)

Scientists are seeking immortality,
Astronauts are searching the skies for our destiny,
It’s not complicated, what this planet needs: love is still the answer to life’s mystery.

Earth people, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I am not alien,
This is love calling, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I want to be your friend.

Earth people, (this is love)
Please come in, (this is love calling Earth)
I am not alien,

Check out the 1,469-pound pumpkin that just broke the Alaska State Fair record

After five years of chasing the Alaska State Fair giant pumpkin record, Anchorage’s Dale Marshall finally won the heavyweight title once again.

At the 11th annual state fair pumpkin weigh-off Tuesday, Marshall’s 1,469-pound gourd beat the previous record of 1,287 pounds set in 2011 by J. D. Megchelsen of Nikiski.

It was a comeback of sorts for Marshall, who held the record in 2010. Marshall said warm weather and good seed selection led him to victory this year. Grown in a greenhouse at his Sand Lake home, the champion pumpkin weighs roughly as much as a large bull moose.

“(I did) pretty much what I do every year,” he said. “And it panned out.”

Marshall was also the lone entry in the 2015 competition, but was unable to compete when the crane hoisting his pumpkin broke during delivery to the fair, smashing the giant gourd into pieces.
