"Look for the Silver Lining" is a popular song with music by Jerome Kern and lyrics by B.G. DeSylva. It was written in 1919 for the unsuccessful musical Zip, Goes a Million. In 1920 it was published and reused in the musical Sally whence it was popularized by Marilyn Miller. Among others, the song was later covered several times by Judy Garland, whose version also became, and remains, well-known.

Many Happy Returns to
THIS DAY IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES:
January 13, 1861 - In Washington, Buchanan received envoys from both Major Anderson and Governor Pickens concerning the disposition of Fort Sumter. The President emphasized that the fort would not be turned over to South Carolina authorities.
January 13, 1862 - To fill the position in his cabinet vacated by Simon Cameron, the President chose Edwin Stanton. He was the Attorney General in Buchanan's administration, and was by this time was practicing law in the nation's capital.
January 13, 1862 - In a continuing effort to spur Generals Buell and Halleck to action in the West, President Lincoln wrote to both men, stating his wish to press the Confederacy, "menacing him with superior forces at different points, at the same time."
January 13, 1864 - Pursuant to his Proclamation of Amnesty and Reconstruction of 8 December, President Lincoln urged Federal officials in Florida and Louisiana to form Union governments "with all possible dispatch."
January 13, 1865 - Just after midnight, Admiral Porter's fleet of 59 ships began its bombardment of Fort Fisher. Having reinforced the fort since the last attack in December, the Confederates had close to 2000 soldiers and 47 guns in and around the fort itself and another 6000 men at the northern end of the peninsula, commanded by General Braxton Bragg, to oppose any attempted landing by the enemy. In mid-afternoon, however, Union troops under the command of General Terry established a beachhead north of Fort Fisher, and during the night dug in opposite Bragg's force and prepared to fend off any attack from that quarter.

Thanks, Glenn! I remember most of them myself! I'd probably remember all of them if I could, you know, remember!
From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of IL - 01/11/11 - "Happy New Year!"
But not everyone is as lucky as I
The economy is so bad that I got a pre-declined credit card in the mail.
I ordered a burger at McDonald's, and the kid behind the counter asked, "Can you afford fries with that?"
CEO's are now playing miniature golf.
If the bank returns your check marked "Insufficient Funds," you have to call them and ask if they mean you or them .
Hot Wheels and Matchbox stocks are trading higher than GM.
McDonald's is selling the 1/4 'ouncer'.
Parents in Beverly Hills and Malibu are firing their nannies and learning their children's names.
A truckload of Americans was caught sneaking into Mexico.
Dick Cheney took his stockbroker hunting.
Motel Six won't leave the light on anymore.
The Mafia is laying off judges.
BP Oil laid off 25 Congressmen.
Congress says they are looking into the Bernard Madoff scandal. Oh Great!! The guy who made $50 Billion disappear is being investigated by the people who made $1.5 Trillion disappear!
I was so depressed last night thinking about the economy, wars, jobs, my savings, Social Security, retirement funds, and our bleak future, that I called the Suicide Lifeline and was connected to a call center in Pakistan. When I told them I was suicidal, they got all excited, and asked if I could drive a truck.
Happy New Year !!!
|GIGGLES! Thanks, Dools!|

How to Avoid Stress and Depression After the Holidays

We think about, we

holiday season! Sometimes this is good, sometimes it's bad.

Nobody does snowmen quite like
Calvin and Hobbes!
Remember, if these made you laugh, share the smile with someone else.

Look for the Silver Lining
Please don't be offended if I preach to you awhile,
Tears are out of place in eyes that were meant to smile.
There's a way to make your very biggest troubles small,
Here's the happy secret of it all.
Look for the silver lining
When e'er a cloud appears in the blue.
Remember some where the sun is shining,
And so the right thing to do,
Is make it shine for you.
A heart, full of joy and gladness,
Will always banish sadness and strife.
So always look for the silver lining,
And try to find the sunny side of life.
As I wash my dishes, I'll be following your plan,
Till I see the brightness in ev'ry pot and pan.
I am sure your point of view will ease the daily grind,
So I keep repeating in my mind.
