Mandy was a British comic book magazine for girls, published weekly by D. C. Thomson & Co. from 21 January 1967 to 11 May 1991, with annuals appearing from 1972 until 2007. From 1991 until the 24 May 1997 issue, it was published as a merged comic with Judy; the two merged with Bunty before ceasing publication in 2001. Mandy's content, like many other girls comics from the time, appeared in picture-story format; the majority of the stories were serialized, with 2-3 pages of a particular story appearing in each issue, most stories lasting for 8-12 instalments. Some recurring theme elements of Mandy stories were: orphans forced to live with cruel or uncaring relatives. Stories were moralistic in tone, with long-suffering heroines achieving happiness, while villainous relatives or girls who were liars and bullies received their comeuppance. Two of the longest-running and most popular picture stories, which featured in every annual, were "Angel" and "Valda". "Angel" centred on Angela Hamilton, a young, wealthy Victorian girl who discovers she has only a year to live and decides to devote her remaining time to caring for orphaned and unwanted children in the slums of the East End of London.
"Valda" stories are set in many different times and places and follow the adventures of a girl with extraordinary abilities and indefinite lifespan. Valda, who draws her physical strength from energy or light passing through a mysterious'Crystal of Life' that she carries, travels the world coming to the aid of the oppressed and those threatened by dark or supernatural forces. Mandy ran text stories serialized in the same manner as the picture-stories, of which the most popular was "The Guardian Tree"; this followed the trials and tribulations of the Shaw family, when the five children are orphaned in Victorian times. The children, under the leadership of the eldest sister, escape the dreaded poorhouse by living on the moors in a cave beneath the roots of a vast tree they christen the "Guardian Tree", which appears to have mysterious and benevolent powers; the most popular text stories were reworked and published as picture stories, including "The Guardian Tree" and "The Sad Star."

Handy Mandy in Oz
Handy Mandy in Oz is the thirty-first of the Oz books created by L. Frank Baum and his successors, the seventeenth written by Ruth Plumly Thompson, it was illustrated by John R. Neill; the book's heroine is an "honest and industrious" goat-girl named Mandy, who grazes her flock on the slopes of Mt. Mern; the story opens with a bang and a splash: an underground spring erupts in a geyser that blasts Mandy into the sky. The force propels her across the Deadly Desert to Oz. Mandy finds a silver hammer, meets a white ox with golden horns, they are outraged by the intrusion of such an outlandish figure — for Mandy has seven arms and hands. As Mandy explains, "This iron hand... I use for lifting hot pots from the stove and all horrid sort of hard work. Mandy is reprieved from the dungeons by Nox the Royal Ox. Mandy and Nox become friends. Nox is preoccupied by the political situation of Keretaria: the rightful king, a boy named Kerry, has disappeared, his throne has been usurped by his uncle Kerr. Mandy discovers that the Royal Ox' horns have magic powers: they can be unscrewed from his head, when they are, the right horn grants wishes, his left horn offers clues.
When a clue indicates that King Kerry can be found at a place called the Silver Mountain, the enterprising Mandy leads Nox on a search for the missing monarch. They survive a flood on their way to the Gillikin Country. A doorway hidden under a waterfall leads them to a subterranean world under the Silver Mountain; the domain is ruled by an ambitious tyrant called the Wizard Wutz. Wutz controls a subversive network of spies and secret agents located in many parts of the land of Oz, he is plotting to have his agents steal all the main magical artifacts of Oz. They do steal the Magic Picture, Glinda's Great Book of Records, the jug, the confinement vessel of Ruggedo, the Gnome King. Mandy and Nox learn that old King Kerr is one of Wutz' agents and that Wutz is holding the rightful King Kerry prisoner. Wutz's machinations have of course attracted the notice of Princess Ozma, the Wizard of Oz, Princess Dorothy, the Scarecrow, their friends and allies, yet their efforts to solve their difficulties are frustrated, since they lack the Magic Picture and Book of Records.
When Mandy and Nox confront Wutz, he imprisons them in a dungeon under his mountain. Mandy accidentally liberates Ruggedo from the jug. Wutz and Ruggedo become allies in evil and set off for the Emerald City to complete their conquest. Mandy's silver hammer, has proven to be magic. With the hammer and elf, the blue daisy, Nox's magical horns and the ox escape confinement and rescue King Kerry, reach Ozma's palace in time to frustrate the plans of Wutz and Ruggedo. Himself the elf transforms the two villains into potted cacti. Ozma restores order and repairs damage with her Magic Belt. Wutz's spies and agents are transformed into moles. Mandy is rewarded with an emerald necklace and a luxury she has longed for — gloves. After a month at home on Mt. Mern, Mandy returns to Oz via wishing pill, for a new life; the plot of this book resembles that of Baum's The Lost Princess of Oz, in which Ugu the shoemaker steals magical artifacts and kidnaps a ruler in a conquest plot, just like the Wizard of Wutz.
Indeed, Trot comments on the plot resemblance in Chapter 14 of Handy Mandy. Thompson wrote a 48-line poem that provides an origin for Mandy, though this origin is inconsistent with the novel. In the poem, Mandy is an artificial and created being, made of "wood and tin...wire and cloth and plaster...." She was built as a sort of domestic robot to perform housework. The novel, in contrast indicates that Mandy, despite her inanimate parts, comes from a race of seven-handed people; the principle villain, the Wizard Wutz, is another unusual character for Oz: a handsome, graceful but pure-evil villain who commands a hierarchical organization of subversives, with planted spies in positions of power all over the land of Oz, a systematic collective strategy for overthrowing the government. Ruggedo the Gnome King makes his last appearance in the Oz-Canon of Forty here. It's small more than a cameo, he ends transformed into a cactus. On Handy Mandy
Mandy is the only studio album by Mandy Smith. It was released by PWL in 1988, re-issued in 1993 in Japan and re-mastered and re-issued in 2009. Smith, well-known on the British tabloids due to her relationship with Rolling Stones member Bill Wyman, which started when she was 13, became the first artist signed to Pete Waterman's PWL Records in September 1986 when she was 16 years old, began working with producers Stock, Aitken & Waterman for her first single, going to be a cover of the 1964 Twinkle hit "Terry"; the recording however remained unreleased as a new song, "I Just Can't Wait" was released as her debut single in January 1987. While the single was not a hit in her native UK, it became a sizeable hit around Japan; the same was true for her second single, "Positive Reaction", released in October 1987. Her European and Japanese success with the singles prompted a full album deal, Smith worked all through late 1987 to early 1988 with Stock Aitken and Waterman as well as with some of their associate producers, including Phil Harding and Ian Curnow, Pete Hammond, Daize Washbourn and Roddy Matthews.
The record was released in April 1988 and two further singles, "Boys and Girls" and "Victim of Pleasure" were released that year. Again, the album saw chart action in Europe and Japan but was a complete failure in her native UK, failing to chart at all. Smith's final recording was a cover of The Human League's "Don't You Want Me", titled "Don't You Want Me Baby" in 1989, released as a standalone single, which became her only single to enter the UK top 75, peaking at No. 59. The album includes a cover of Propaganda's "Duel" and "If It Makes You Feel Good", recorded by Princess and would be recorded a year by Donna Summer. "Stay with Me Tonight" was co-written by British singer Rick Astley under the pseudonym'Dick Spatsley'. He recorded the song at the time, but it was not released until it was included on the 2CD compilation Phil Harding Club Mixes of the 80s in 2011; the album was reissued in Japan in 1993 adding a few remixes as bonus tracks. In 2009, the album was reissued by the Cherry Pop label adding eight bonus tracks, including "Don't You Want Me Baby", the unreleased "Terry", Smith's version of Kylie Minogue's hit "Got to Be Certain" which she had recorded but was given to Minogue.
Smith's version was first released in 2005 as a bonus track on a compilation of Stock, Aitken & Waterman's hits. Another song, titled "Charisma" and produced by Daize Washbourn, was slated for the album but left incomplete. "Stay with Me Tonight" – 3:34 "I Just Can't Wait" – 3:25 "Victim of Pleasure" – 3:31 "Duel" – 4:05 "Boys and Girls" – 3:45 "Mandy's Theme Part 1" – 4:24 "If It Makes You Feel Good" – 4:31 "Positive Reaction" – 3:27 "Say It's Love" – 3:51 "He's My Boy " – 3:49 "You're Never Alone" – 3:34 "Mandy's Theme Part 2" – 4:13 CD album has a bonus track.

Dame Julie Andrews, is an English actress and author. Andrews, a child actress and singer, appeared in the West End in 1948 and made her Broadway debut in The Boy Friend. Billed as “Britain’s youngest prima donna”, she rose to prominence starring in Broadway musicals such as My Fair Lady playing Eliza Doolittle, Camelot playing Queen Guinevere. In 1957, Andrews starred in the premiere of Rodgers and Hammerstein's written-for-television musical Cinderella, a live, network broadcast seen by over 100 million viewers. Andrews made her feature film debut in Mary Poppins, won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in the title role, she starred in The Sound of Music, playing Maria von Trapp, won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical. Between 1964 and 1986, she starred in The Americanization of Emily, Torn Curtain, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Star!, The Tamarind Seed, 10, Victor/Victoria, That's Life! and Duet for One. In 2000, Andrews was made a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II for services to the performing arts.
In 2002, she was ranked #59 in the BBC's poll of the 100 Greatest Britons. In 2003, she revisited her first Broadway success, this time as a stage director, with a revival of The Boy Friend. From 2001 to 2004, Andrews starred in The Princess Diaries and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement. From 2004 to 2010, she lent her voice to the Shrek animated films and Despicable Me. Andrews has won an Academy Award, a BAFTA, five Golden Globes, three Grammys, two Emmys, the Screen Actors Guild Lifetime Achievement Award, the Kennedy Center Honors Award, the Disney Legends Award. Apart from her musical career, she is an author of children's books and has published an autobiography, Home: A Memoir of My Early Years. Julia Elizabeth Wells was born on 1 October 1935 in Walton-on-Thames, England, her mother, Barbara Ward Wells was born in Chertsey and married Edward Charles "Ted" Wells, a teacher of metalwork and woodwork in 1932. However, Andrews was conceived as a result of an affair. Andrews discovered her true parentage from her mother in 1950, although it was not publicly disclosed until her 2008 autobiography.
With the outbreak of World War II, Barbara and Ted Wells went their separate ways and were soon divorced. Each remarried: Barbara to Ted Andrews, in 1943, Ted Wells in 1944, to Winifred Maud Birkhead, a war widow and former hairstylist working a lathe at a war work factory that employed them both in Hinchley Wood, Surrey. Ted Wells assisted with evacuating children to Surrey during the Blitz, while Barbara joined Ted Andrews in entertaining the troops through the Entertainments National Service Association. Andrews lived with Ted Wells and her brother John in Surrey. In 1940, Ted Wells sent young Julia to live with her mother and stepfather, who the elder Wells thought would be better able to provide for his talented daughter's artistic training. According to her 2008 autobiography Home, while Julie had been used to calling Ted Andrews "Uncle Ted", her mother suggested it would be more appropriate to refer to her stepfather as "Pop", while her father remained "Dad" or "Daddy" to her. Julie disliked this change.
The Andrews family was "very poor and we lived in a bad slum area of London," Andrews recalled, adding, "That was a black period in my life." According to Andrews, her stepfather was violent and an alcoholic. Ted Andrews twice, while drunk, tried to get into bed with his stepdaughter, resulting in Andrews fitting a lock on her door; as the stage career of Ted and Barbara Andrews improved, they were able to afford to move to better surroundings, first to Beckenham and as the war ended, back to the Andrews' hometown of Hersham. The Andrews family took up residence at the Old Meuse, in West Grove, Hersham, a house where Andrews' maternal grandmother had served as a maid. Andrews' stepfather sponsored lessons for her, first at the Cone-Ripman School, an independent arts educational school in London with concert soprano and voice instructor Madame Lilian Stiles-Allen. "She had an enormous influence on me", Andrews said of Stiles-Allen, adding, "She was my third mother – I've got more mothers and fathers than anyone in the world."
In her memoir Julie Andrews – My Star Pupil, Stiles-Allen records, "The range and tone of Julie's voice amazed me... she had possessed the rare gift of absolute pitch", though Andrews herself refutes this in her 2008 autobiography Home. According to Andrews, "Madame was sure that I could do Mozart and Rossini, but, to be honest, I never was". Of her own voice, she says, "I had a pure, thin voice, a four-octave range – dogs would come from miles around." After Cone-Ripman School, Andrews continued her academic education at the nearby Woodbrook School, a local state school in Beckenham. Beginning in 1945, for the next two years, Julie Andrews performed spontaneously and unbilled on stage with her parents. "Then came the day when I was told I must go to bed in the afternoon because I was going to be allowed to sing with Mummy and Pop in the evening," Andrews explained. She would stand on a beer crate to sing into the microphone, sometimes a solo or as a duet with her stepfather, while her mother played piano.
"It must have been ghastly, but it seemed to go down all right."Julie Andrews gained her big break when her stepfather introduced her to Val Parnell, whose Moss Empires controlled prominent venues in London. Andrews made her professional solo debut at the London Hippodrome singing the difficult aria "J
Red Bull RB6
The Red Bull RB6 is a Formula One motor racing car designed by Red Bull Racing for the 2010 campaign. It was driven by 2010 World Champion Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber and was launched on February 10 at Jerez. Vettel, who makes it a habit to give his racing cars names, named his RB6 "Luscious Liz". However, after unspecified minor damage was found on this chassis after the Monaco Grand Prix, the team gave Vettel a new chassis, which he named "Randy Mandy."The car claimed the first of four consecutive World Constructors' Championships for Red Bull Racing, in the hands of Sebastian Vettel, took the first World Drivers' Championship of his career at the last round of the season. In qualifying, the RB6 was a consistent pace setter, setting the fastest time in 15 out of the 19 rounds. Red Bull's chief technical officer Adrian Newey went on to claim that the car was "probably the car with the most downforce in the history of F1". In 2014, before his final race with Red Bull, Vettel stated that the RB6 was his favorite Formula One car to drive in his career to date.
During qualifying for the 2010 Bahrain Grand Prix, Sebastian Vettel set the fastest times in Q2 and Q3 clinching pole by just over a tenth of second from Ferrari's Felipe Massa. From the lights Sebastian Vettel led until lap 33 when the car had what was at first thought to be a broken exhaust but was revealed to be a spark plug problem which reduced the power and straight line speed. Over the remaining laps of the race Vettel dropped down to fourth behind both Ferraris and Lewis Hamilton where he would finish the race. Webber finished 8th. Vettel achieved his second consecutive pole position in Australia, while Webber qualified in second position. Technical problems plagued Vettel for a second consecutive race when a loose wheel nut ended his challenge while leading. Webber had to stay on track longer as Vettel pitted for dry tyres, finished in ninth position after a late-race incident with Lewis Hamilton. In Malaysia the Red Bull drivers scored a dominant 1-2 finish, with Vettel winning. In China they took the front row of the starting grid, but rain affected the race and they finished in sixth and eighth positions.
In Spain Webber won the race with teammate Vettel finishing third after a major brake problem in the last 8 laps. In Monte Carlo Webber dominated the race. Sebastian Vettel passed Robert Kubica's Renault on lap one and remained in second position for the remainder of the race distance, completing Red Bull's second 1-2 of the season. In Turkey Webber claimed pole again in qualifying, while Vettel managed third, behind Lewis Hamilton. In the race, Vettel managed to overtake Hamilton during pit stops to be in second place for much of the race. Webber and Vettel were on course for Red Bull's third 1-2 of the 2010 season, until lap 40 when Vettel and Webber crashed into each other as a result of an attempted overtake by Vettel; the crash put an end to Webber's chance of victory. The race ended in a McLaren 1-2 instead of a Red Bull 1-2, with Hamilton winning and Jenson Button coming in second. Webber finished in third place. Webber managed to hold on to first place in the Drivers' Championship, with a five-point lead over second placed Button.
Vettel however slipped to fifth place. Red Bull surrendered first place in the Constructors' Championship to McLaren, albeit being behind by only one point. In Canada they are now 22 points behind. In Valencia, Vettel won his first race since Malaysia while Webber had a spectacular accident where he collided with Heikki Kovalainen and flipped over at 190 mph and hit an advertising board, escaping unhurt from the incident. At the British Grand Prix, an inter-team feud broke out after Red Bull brought two updated front wings to the race. After one was broken when it became detached from Vettel's car in the third free practice session, Vettel was given the second wing for qualifying based upon championship positions and practice pace, which left team-mate Webber frustrated. With the new wing, Vettel qualified on pole with Webber recording the second-fastest time in the session. Webber made a better start than his team-mate and overhauled Vettel into the first corner, while Vettel suffered a puncture due to contact with the front wing endplate of Lewis Hamilton's McLaren, which dropped him to the tail of the field.
He would recover to seventh place. On the slow-down lap, still angry at the situation, told his team over the radio that his victory was "not bad for a number two driver", in the post-race press conference, he stated that he would not have signed a contract extension with the team - having signed a contract extension for 2011 in the preceding month - had he believed he was going to be treated unfavourably to Vettel. Vettel took poles in Germany and Hungary but failed to win either race, taking third places in both races. Webber suffered a problem with a lack of oil in the engine of his car, finished sixth at Hockenheim. At the Hungaroring, the Red Bull cars were the pacesetters, Webber won the race after capitalising on a drive-through penalty for Vettel, for falling over ten lengths behind Webber during a safety car period. With victory, Webber returned to the top of the championship, while Red Bull took the lead in the Constructors' Championship. In Belgium, Webber took pole. In the race, Webber finished second behind Hamilton, while Vettel lost control of the car trying to pass Jenson Button, damaging his own front wing and ending Button's race by damaging his car's radiators.
Vettel pitted for a new front wing and appeared to be threatening to regain a points-scoring position bef
Brandy (Scott English song)
"Brandy" called "Mandy", is a song written by Scott English and Richard Kerr. It was recorded by English in 1971 and reached the top 20 of the UK Singles Chart. "Brandy" was covered by Bunny Walters in New Zealand in 1972, but achieved greater success when covered in 1974 by Barry Manilow in the US, with the title changed from "Brandy" to "Mandy" to avoid confusion with Looking Glass's "Brandy". His version reached the top of the US Hot 100 Singles Chart. On, it was recorded by many other artists; the song was a UK. Under the title Brandy, the selection's original title, the song charted in 1971 for Scott English, one of its co-composers, whose version of it reached #12 in the UK Singles Charts, it was released in the United States, where it was a minor hit, remaining in the lower portion of the Hot 100. The suggestion that Scott English wrote the song about a favorite dog is an urban legend. English has said that a reporter called him early one morning asking who "Brandy" was, an irritated English made up the dog story to get the reporter off his back.
In a 2013 interview, he said the idea for the song title came while he was in France and someone tried to make a dirty joke saying "Brandy goes down fine after dinner, doesn't she" although in English, a drink does not have a grammatical gender, the line does not have the intended double-entendre. He wrote the song in London, he said he hated the Manilow version because he took out part of a verse and made it a bridge, but he loved it because it bought him houses. The song was inspired by his life, he said. In 1972, Bunny Walters had a hit with it in New Zealand; the backing vocals were by The Yandall Sisters. He included the song on his album Very Best of Bunny Walters. In 1974, Barry Manilow recorded the song under the title name of "Mandy"; the song was Manilow's first #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and Easy Listening charts, his first gold single. In the three years between English's and Manilow's recordings, Looking Glass's "Brandy" had hit #1 in 1972; when Clive Davis suggested that Manilow record the selection, the singer changed the title to "Mandy" to avoid confusion.
Joe Renzetti arranged the record. In the Manilow version, the first two lines from the fourth verse, following the instrumental section, were omitted, they were: "Riding on a country bus/No one noticed us." The remaining lines were used as a bridge instead. "Mandy" was covered by Irish boy band Westlife in 2003 and was released as the second single from their fourth studio album, Turnaround. The single peaked at #1 on the UK Singles Chart to become the band's twelfth #1 single on the chart; the single sold over 200,000 copies in the UK. The single was released on Monday, November 17, 2003; the music video was filmed in the United Great Lodge of England, Freemasons Hall, 60 Great Queen St, London WC2B 5AZ. Their version won them their third Record of the Year award, in under five years, their version of "Mandy" is considered as the single with the longest leap to the top in UK music history. It is the band's seventeenth most streamed song, sixteenth best selling single in paid-for sales category and in best selling single combined sales category in the United Kingdom as of January 2019.

Mandy (Irving Berlin song)
"Mandy" is a popular song by Irving Berlin, published in 1919. "Mandy" was used for an Army relief show called "Yip Yip Yaphank" during World War I. For the number, soldiers in the show dressed in drag; this song and chorus line was re-created for the 1943 Warner Brothers This Is The Army. The number became a hit when it was re-used in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1919, where it was performed by Eddie Cantor and Marilyn Miller; this song was performed by Eddie Cantor, Ethel Merman, Ann Sothern, George Murphy, The Nicholas Brothers, The Goldwyn Girls in the 1934 film Kid Millions.
