“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 - Forgotten Dreams - 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...


   From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of NC - 01/03/18, 12:26 AM - " Laura Adams Harty (Cardston HS, Alberta - '95) of NC":

Thanks for adding Laura to the NNHS prayer roll. As you know, she is quite stubborn and doesn't like being in a diminished state due to recovery from a moderate to severe concussion. She is feeling better today, but still has significant effects. Please pass along my regards to all who have offered prayers on her behalf, and that I appreciate all those who are able to continue to do so.

In this way, she can quickly recover and then return to just being ornery and stubborn instead of ornery, stubborn, and injured due to concussion!

With Love....

   HA-HA! I'll do that, Brent! Kiss your beautiful "Sugarlar" for us, and please let me know how her follow-up visit this afternoon goes. I'm concerned that her vertigo is persisting.

January 03, 1868 - Meiji Restoration in Japan: The Tokugawa shogunate was abolished; agents of Satsuma and Chōshū seized power.


January 03, 1944 - Top Ace Major Greg "Pappy" Boyington was shot down in his Corsair by Captain Masajiro Kawato flying a Zero.

January 03, 1945 - U.S. General Douglas MacArthur was placed in command of all U.S. ground forces and U.S. Admiral Chester W Nimitz was placed in command of all U.S. Naval forces in preparation for planned assaults against Iwo Jima and Okinawa in Japan. This event effectively ended the concept of unified commands.


Wednesday, January 03, 1968 - Apparently, nothing at all happened anywhere in the world today.....

  From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 01/02/18, 2:29 PM - "Newsletter for New Year's Eve":

Hi, Carol:

  Bill Lee (Warwick HS - '54 - of NC) provided some fine information regarding the USS Essex that you published in your Newsletter. He is a fine historian and writer.

One other Aircraft Carrier worth mention is the USS BOXER (CVA-21) built at Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company. She was an Essex-Class Carrier. She was nicknamed the "Busy Bee" because she was always working. She set a speed record crossing the Pacific Ocean at the outbreak of the Korean War, running Flank Speed for seven days to be on station. She was among the first to launch Jet Propelled Aircraft during the Korean War.

I had the privilege of serving in this fine ship when she was converted from CVS-21 to LPH-4 at Norfolk Naval Shipyard. Served as the Marine Orderly for two Captains commanding the ship.

TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of VA

   Thank you, Adonis! I was wondering why I'd never made much mention of her before, and this excerpt from her Wikipedia entry might explain it:

"...Commissioned too late to see any combat in World War II, Boxer spent much of her career in the Pacific Ocean seeing 10 tours in the western Pacific. Her initial duties involved mostly training and exercises, including launching the first carrier-based jet aircraft, but demobilization prevented much activity in the late 1940s. At the outbreak of the Korean War, she was used as an aircraft transport before arriving off Korean waters as the third U.S. carrier to join the force. She supported the Inchon landings and subsequent invasion of North Korea, and was among the ships that provided support during the Chinese counteroffensive against an under-prepared and spread out United Nations (UN) force. She saw three subsequent combat tours in Korea conducting close air support and strategic bombing in support of UN ground troops fighting along the 38th parallel, as the battles lines had largely solidified by this time. She was awarded eight battle stars for her service in Korea..."

   Hmm. Now I shall be forced to think... Thanks for the nudge, Major Madagan!

 From My Daughter of Other Parents, Megan Fulmer Mansfield (Marshall HS, TX - '02) of TX - 01/02/18:

  That must be some very heavy brownie mix.

   Thanks, Megan! Keep pushing that Costco cart, Joe! You can do it!

     From My #1 Daughter-in-Law, Mary Bennett Harty (Litchfield HS, IL - '89) of IL - 01/02/15 - "Green Spring Cleaning Recipe for the Grout":

  7 cups water, 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/3 cup lemon juice and 1/4 cup vinegar

Throw in a spray bottle and spray your floor, let it sit for a minute or two... then scrub

     That sounds easy enough! Thanks, Miss Mary!


  From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 12/26/17 - "Wishing you all a fantastic 2018!!! (#3 in a series of 10)":

  Wishing you all a fantastic 2018!!!

Let today be a day to take life less seriously.
Take the weight of the world off your shoulders.
Choose Joy!

     BRILLIANT! Thank you, Shari!

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."


Stacey Winklepleck's Dreamy Waves Scarf - "Increases and decreases give a gentle wave design to this simple scarf. Using 2 different multicolored yarns and alternating the skeins create a beautifully gradient piece you'll never want to take off." - free download

BONUS CASSEROLE RECIPES (To warm you in January): - 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." - 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."
