“There are many ways of breaking a heart.
Stories were full of hearts being broken by love,
but what really broke a heart was taking away
its dream - whatever that dream might be.” 

- Pearl S. Buck
(26 June 1892 - 06 Mar 1973)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

    True dreams should never be forgotten, not really.....

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMDMSQWgBQ0 - Forgotten Dreams - Leroy Anderson


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leroy_Anderson:   

...In 2006, one of his piano works, "Forgotten Dreams", written in 1954, became the background for a British TV advertisement for mobile phone company '3'. Previously, Los Angeles station KABC-TV used the song as its sign-off theme at the end of broadcast days in the 1980s, and Mantovani's recording of the song had been the closing theme for WABC-TV's "Eyewitness News" for much of the 1970s...

"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so you shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you 
shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."

- James Lane Allen (1849 - 1923)


       From George Helliesen ('61) of MI - 01/02/14 - "Stay Young, My Friend":

Stay Young, My Friend

We all need to read this one over and over until it becomes part of who we are!

HOW TO STAY YOUNG

1. Try everything twice.  On one woman's tombstone she said she wanted this epitaph:
 Tried everything twice...loved it both times!


2. Keep only cheerful friends.   The grouches pull you down.  ( Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches.)

3. Keep learning: Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. 
Never let the brain get idle.'  An idle mind is the devil's workshop.' 
And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time with HIM/HER.

6. The tears happen: Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person who is
with us our entire life, is ourselves. LIVE while you are alive.


7. Surround yourself with what you love: Whether it's family, pets,
keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it.
If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, or a trip to the next county or a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.  I love you, my special friend.

11. Forgive now those who made you cry. You might not get a second chance.

Remember! Lost time can never be found.

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
 

   AMEN! Thanks so much, George!


 "All of our dreams can come true -- if we have the courage to pursue them."

Walt Disney (1901 - 1966)


        From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 01/02/14 - "Happy New Year!!!":

Well, we have a new year. The old one wasn't always filled with good news, but all in all, it was a pretty good year. Here's hoping that all of you have a happy, healthy, hazard free year, filled with hope and opportunities to be helpful to your friends and family, but also to those that you are not friends with -- yet!

Here's hoping that you all remain focused on doing good while uplifting the spirits of those that are depressed, unhappy or close to giving up. Hang in there! You are needed by a lot more people than you might be aware of, so continue to smile, and say thanks as often as you can, especially to Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!

   Thanks, Haul Party!


 "In dreams and in love there are no impossibilities."

- Janos Arany (1817 - 1882)


       From George Helliesen ('61) of MI - 01/02/14 - "Now that I'm getting older......":

As I was lying around, pondering the problems of the world, I realized that at my age I don't really care anymore.

.. If walking is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.
.. A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, but is still fat.
.. A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years, while
.. A tortoise doesn't run and does mostly nothing, yet it lives for 150 years.
And you tell me to exercise?? I don't think so.

Just grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked, the good fortune to remember the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Now that I'm older here's what I've discovered:

1. I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.
2. My wild oats are mostly enjoyed with prunes and all-bran.
3. I finally got my head together, and now my body is falling apart.
4. Funny, I don't remember being absent-minded.
5. Funny, I don't remember being absent-minded.
6. If all is not lost, then where the heck is it ?
7. It was a whole lot easier to get older, than to get wiser.
8. Some days, you're the top dog, some days you're the hydrant.
9. I wish the buck really did stop here, I sure could use a few of them.
10. Kids in the back seat cause accidents.
11. Accidents in the back seat cause kids.
12. It's hard to make a comeback when you haven't been anywhere.
13. The world only beats a path to your door when you're in the bathroom.
14. If God wanted me to touch my toes, he'd have put them on my knees.
15. When I'm finally holding all the right cards, everyone wants to play chess.
16. It's not hard to meet expenses . . .they're everywhere.
17. The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.
18. These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter… I go somewhere to get something, and then wonder what I'm "here after".
19. Funny, I don't remember being absent-minded.
20. HAVE I SENT THIS MESSAGE TO YOU BEFORE? 

     Thanks again, George!

       From George Helliesen ('61) of MI - 01/02/14 - "A new song could be our new 'battle song":

This is not new, but should be added to your repertoire.

LET US HELP YOU PACK.....YOU GOTTA WATCH THIS!!

A Colorado woman after my own heart ---
FYI - In case you have not seen this from a woman who lives on a small horse ranch in Colorado and who is married to a former US Marine. Her son was a US Marine who survived Desert Storm & there is another US Marine + one USAF grandson in her family tree, but evidently she is the only singer.

   BOY HOWDY! Thanks once more, George!


"Don't be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality. If you can dream it, you can make it so."

- Belva Davis


       From George Helliesen ('61) of MI - 12/20/13 - "One Word Essays (#14 in a Series of 28)":

As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Neat things in life!
 

 
May your troubles be less,
May your blessings be more;
May nothing but happiness come through your door!!
 
   Thanks so much, George! These are cool!
Confusion
 


"In your heart, keep one still, secret spot where dreams may go and sheltered so may thrive and grow."

- Louise Driscoll


BONUS CROCHET PATTERNS (To warm your grandchildren in January):

Kinga Erdem's Tiptoe Slippers - "These little booties are the perfect slippers for toddler feet. Soft and comfy, these Tiptoe Slippers feature three colors. The combination on the example (white, green, and pink) looks adorable, but they could be worked up in any colors. They would be charming in holiday hues or in three shades of the same color. If you plan on having your little one run around the house in these, add some grip to the bottom with puffy paint or dots of hot glue. Yarn can be super slippery."

Kinga Erdem's Gumdrop Kids Hat - "Just because the winter months mean grey and dreary weather doesn't mean we can't add a splash of color to the world. This Gumdrop Kids Hat looks amazing with a medley of bright colors, especially pinks and yellows. Any little girl or boy would be thrilled to show this hat off on the playground at school. Although this free crochet pattern is a little more involved than other crochet hat patterns, it is well worth the extra work. Tight stitches make for a thicker, warmer hat. Plus, the comfy ear flaps protect little ears from the wind.":

Stacey Lynn's Pancake Scarf - "Are you a breakfast person, and don't care who knows it? Then this Pancake Scarf pattern is perfect for you! Made with honey brown yarn, this silly scarf works up quickly, and will make an amazing conversation piece. The yellow butter circles added to every other pancake really make the scarf, transforming it from a brown scarf to a pancake lanyard. This free crochet pattern can be worked up to any length; just keep crocheting pancakes until you hit the desired length. This scarf makes a really unique gift. Consider giving it with a brunch gift certificate or pancake mix."


BONUS CASSEROLE RECIPES (To warm you in January):

http://www.recipelion.com/Casserole-Recipes/Loaded-Ham-and-Cheese-Casserole/ml/1 - Loaded Ham and Cheese Casserole - "Make another meal with your baked ham leftovers. Loaded Ham and Cheese Casserole is a hearty simple dish that will satisfy your family's hunger. Loaded with cheese and broccoli this ham casserole recipe will be a hit."

http://www.recipelion.com/Casserole-Recipes/Hamburger-Cheese-Casserole/ml/1 - Hamburger and Cheese Casserole - "There's nothing more satisfying than enjoying delicious casserole recipes while saving a buck or two. Hamburger Cheese Casserole is a wonderful home-style casserole that will become a family favorite. Easy to make with a wonderful flavor, you won't be able to put the fork down. Cheesy and creamy, it's comfort food at its finest."

http://www.recipelion.com/Casserole-Recipes/Easy-Weekday-Pizza-Pasta-Casserole/ml/1 - Easy Weekday Pizza Pasta Casserole - "Some of the best casserole recipes out there are also some of the easiest.

Add your favorite vegetables, meats and cheeses. There's no limit to what you can do to this fun casserole recipe."


FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 01/02/14:

A man walks into a bar, and tells the bartender to pour him a 12 year old single malt scotch "before the trouble starts." The bartender pours his drink and quietly moves away.

After finishing his drink, the man calls the bartender back and tells him "pour me a 15 year old scotch before the trouble starts." The bartender thinks this is very strange but pours him the 15 year old scotch.

After finishing that drink, the man tells the bartender to pour him an 18 year old scotch "before the trouble starts." The bartender is becoming a little worried, but pours him the 18 year old scotch.

Before the man finishes his 18 year old scotch, the bartender finally gets up the nerve to ask: "Say friend, when this trouble is going to start?" To which the man replies: "The trouble starts, when you find out that I don't have any money."
