01/17/19 - NNHS Newsletter - For All We Know

“Our personal ripple effect is the power of one generating hope and change in others for a better world.
Like ripples radiating across the surface of a pond when a pebble is tossed in, kindness is powerful
and has far-reaching, positive ramifications that bring about a tremendous sense of joy
.”

- Laurie Buchanan

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   This is an inexplicable first appearance as a Newsletter theme for this 1934 classic.

BONUS #1 - For All We Know - Nat King Cole

BONUS #2 - For All We Know - The Carpenters


From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/For_All_We_Know_(1934_song):    

"For All We Know" is a popular song published in 1934. The music was written by J. Fred Coots and the lyric by Sam M. Lewis.

The lyrics start: For all we know We may never meet again.

The first charting versions in 1934 were by Hal Kemp (#3 on the US charts) and Isham Jones (#16). A version by Dinah Washington reached #88 on the chart in 1962. A version by Nat King Cole is also well known. The version by The Spinners in 1965 gave it a more contemporary sound.

The Rosemary Clooney version is heard over the closing credits of Dan Ireland's 2005 British film, Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont...

From My Friend, Susan, of NC -
01/17/15:
 

“Everybody in this life has their challenges and difficulties. That is part of our mortal test. The reason for some of these trials cannot be readily understood except on the basis of faith and hope because there is often a larger purpose which we do not always understand. Peace comes through hope.”

- James E. Faust
(31 July 1920 - 10 Aug 2007)

    Thanks so much, Susan!


From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 01/17/18:

  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 01/16/19, 5:55 AM:
 

  A cold January morning gets a bad wrap. Yes, it's cold but when the sun comes out and the air is clean and crisp, it is invigorating. Looking at a frozen lake, you can see the heat of the sun turning some water to vapor as it rises like a lifting cloud. Things are quiet, yet you can hear any noises so much clearer, like the barking dog on the other side. And then you realize that all of the barren trees aren't dead, they are just lying dormant waiting for the coming sprint to burst alive again. It's a wonderful time, as are all seasons, to appreciate a loving God who took the time to immaculately design His Creation to offer the best of all things. No one of lesser intelligence, power or grace could have even come close. Be blessed and enjoy this day, for you were given the gift of another day to enjoy His handiwork. Make the most of it.

   Thank you, Jimmy!

 From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 12/30/18 - "DIY HOME PROJECTS (#5 in a Series of 20)":

  Love some of these super ideas and hope others do too.

The stone carpet is awesome. My great aunt, who used live in Williamsburg, did some stone work on her patio. It was pretty, but not this detailed. Looks like a fun project to do with others. It would be quite the endeavor for one.

The cheese grater one is also one I like, a lot. The simplicity is nice and gives it a vintage feel.

There are so many talented people in our world!

   OOH! Thank you, Shari!

 
 



BONUS CROCHET RIPPLE PATTERNS:
Kathryn Vercillo's 10 Crochet Ripple Afghan Patterns - "Ripple afghan designs never go out of style. That classic chevron motif may be iconic to certain eras, but by changing the colors and width of the ripples, the design can always be updated to a current look. The best part about crochet ripples is that they are easy to learn."


BONUS KNIT RIPPLE STITCH INSTRUCTIONS:

Ripple Pattern - "These instructions are a generic description of how to execute this stitch pattern. For a single repeat, you'd only need eighteen stitches but you'd have a VERY narrow piece!..."


BONUS RIPPLE RECIPE:

Choc Ripple Cake - "Keep the kids busy in the kitchen assembling this chocolate biscuit classic."


FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 01/16/19:

Needless to say, I was shocked.

For All We Know

Lyrics by Sam M. Lewis (25 Oct 1885 – 22 Nov 1959)

Music by J. Fred Coots (02 May 1897 – 08 Apr 1985), 1934
 

For all we know we may never meet again
Before you go make this moment sweet again
We won't say "good night" until the last minute
I'll hold out my hand and my heart will be in it

For all we know this may only be a dream
We come and go like a ripple on a stream
So love me tonight; tomorrow was made for some
Tomorrow may never come for all we know

So love me tonight; tomorrow was made for some
Tomorrow may never come for all we know
