...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...

Stay Young, My Friend
We all need to read this one over and over until it becomes part of who we are!

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
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!

|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.
Thanks again, George!
