- 01/05/10 - "Happy New Year'':
Happy New Year!
How True It Is...
Another year has passed
and we're all a little older.
Last summer felt hotter
and winter much colder.
I rack my brain for happy thoughts, to put down on my pad,
But lots of things that come to mind just make me kinda sad.
There was a time not long ago when life was quite a blast
Now I fully understand about living in the past.
We used to go to weddings, football games and lunches.
Now we go to funeral homes and after funeral brunches.
We used to have hangovers from parties that were gay.
Now we suffer body aches and while the night away.
We used to travel often to places near and far,
Now we get sore bottoms from riding in the car.
We used to go out shopping for new clothing at the Mall,
But, now we never bother... all the sizes are too small.
We used to go to nightclubs and drink a little booze,
Now we stay at home at night and watch the evening news.
That, my friend, is how life is, and now my tale is told.
May God let us all grow old gracefully
So, enjoy each day and live it up... before you're too darned old.
Wishing all of you
"New Year 2010"
May God let us all grow old gracefully
From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 01/05/09 - "Interested in what your childhood home looks like today?":
This item is remarkable. I looked up several of the places where I have lived in the past, and it worked every time. No virus problems and no warnings.
There's a little map with a little man on it - you can move the little man up and down the block if you need to. I just looked at my childhood home! Really fun website!
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 01/05/10 - "Tuesday":
Impressive sign guy!
"The grass is not greener on the other side...
You just have to water your own."
New Year's Follies...
From Sarah Puckett Kressaty ('65) of VA - 01/05/10 - "A Banned Song? Why?":
A Banned Song? Why?
The song you are about to listen to is from a Las Vegas Diamond Rio concert. They received an immediate, resounding standing ovation, and continue to do so every time they perform it! Sadly, major radio stations wouldn't play it because it was considered "politically incorrect." Consequently, the song was never released to the public.
America , see what you think.. If this offering speaks to your heart and you
feel you want to share it with friends and loved ones, please do.
THIS IS GREAT - PLEASE LISTEN TO IT AND THEN PLEASE KEEP IT GOING!!!!

What Star Is This?
Quae Stella Sole Pulchrior, Tr. Charles Coffin (04 Oct 1676 - 20 June1749), 1736
Translated from Latin to Engish by John Chandler, 1837.
Adapted by Michael Praetorius,
What star is this with beams so bright,
More lovely than the sun's own light?
'Tis sent to announce the newborn King;
Glad tidings of our God to bring.
'Tis now fulfill'd as God decreed:
"From Jacob shall a star proceed,"
And lo! the Eastern sages stand
To read in heav'n the Lord's command.
As from this star glow outward rays,
An inward light the Lord conveys,
And urges them with force benign
To seek the giver of the sign.
