“There are many ways of breaking a heart.
Pearl S. Buck
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":
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!
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.

150 YEARS AGO TODAY:
|January 03, 1868 - Meiji Restoration in Japan: The Tokugawa shogunate was abolished; agents of Satsuma and Chōshū seized power.|
THIS DAY IN WWII:
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.
THIS DAY IN 1968:
|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":
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
(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.
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:
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
but demobilization prevented
much activity in the late 1940s. At the outbreak of the Korean
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
subsequent invasion of North
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
support of UN ground troops fighting along the 38th
as the battles lines had largely solidified by this time. She was
awarded eight battle
her service in Korea..."
|Hmm. Now I shall be forced to think... Thanks for the nudge, Major Madagan!|

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!
