Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain and most fools do.
Hes a fool who cannot conceal his wisdom.

1. My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of AL is at this moment undergoing his second surgery since the beginning of the year. He was taken back to the emergency room last night in excruciating pain, where it was at last determined that he did indeed have an obstruction in his intestines all along. As this is a potentially life-threatening situation, your earnest prayers are requested.

From Malcolm Davis ('65) of VA - 01/16/14 - "John Denver - Back Home Again - YouTube":
Your recent news letters contained many prayer requests and information about illnesses, operations, disease diagnoses, and maladies that classmates, family members and alumni are dealing with presently. May God comfort all of you in your journey back to good health. I also hope that this John Denver song (link) will be a comfort to you. I know that you all will be glad to "be back home again" with restored health. May God also provide to the families and caregivers strength and tenderness as they render the needed assistance to aid in successful convalescence in each case.
Get well soon!
Thank you so very much, Malcolm!

Carrot looks like the human eye.. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look

blood flow to and function of the eyes.
Thanks so much, Joan!

Bernie Taupin (b. 22 May 1950), 1975
I used to be a rolling stone
You know if the cause was right
I'd leave to find the answer on the road
I used to be a heart beating for someone
But the times have changed
The less I say the more my work gets done
`Cause I live and breathe this Philadelphia freedom
From the day that I was born I've waved the flag
Philadelphia freedom took me knee-high to a man
Yeah gave me peace of mind my daddy never had
Oh Philadelphia freedom shine on me, I love you
Shine a light through the eyes of the ones left behind
Shine a light shine a light
Shine a light won't you shine a light
Philadelphia freedom I love you, yes I do
If you choose to you can live your life alone
Some people choose the city
Some others choose the good old family home
I like living easy without family ties
Till the whippoorwill of freedom zapped me
Right between the eyes
