01/25/12 - NNHS Newsletter - Maximum Consumption

Eating is not merely a material pleasure. Eating well gives a spectacular
joy to life and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship.
It is of great importance to the morale.”

- Elsa Schiaparelli
(1890 - 1973)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   I chose this song for today's Newsletter because it just sort of popped into my mind - like a "poppin' fresh" muffin, perhaps.....

  Carol,

I have attached a couple of photos you can add to my profile - - one of me as a kid, and one taken not too long ago - - kind of a before and after, if you will!

Hope everything is going well for you and yours.

Best Regards,

   OH - thank you so much, John!

   
   

   The idea of "age progression" pictures originated with our       Darlin' Herbie (Hice) (22 Oct 1924 - 18 Apr 2008), and once begun, I think we've all enjoyed them. As you know, I am so completely OCD that I'd be much more comfortable having a complete set for each of our subscribers so that all of the pages will match...

   I've added your images to your Alumni Page (a.k.a. the MOST Broken Page on the site - most of the names and images from the Class of 1958 are hiding, and other freaky things occur throughout the page; whenever I take steps to repair it, it generally shuts down all my systems for hours...):

  From Domi O'Brien ('64) of NH - 01/23/12 - "Imbolg; Brighidh's Feast":

Imbolg (Brighidh's Feast, falling on Feb 4 this year) is particularly associated with dairy products, lamb, and new greens (such as watercress or peppercress or shav or sorrel).

This Grove tries to do all feasts as three realms-- fish (sea), fowl (air) and flesh (earth). This menu of lamb cooked with winter vegetables or grain and beans, roast tarragon chicken, baked honey-glazed salmon, cheese and herb pie,  fresh-baked rolls, served with a tossed salad and finished with a dairy dessert, is a typical Imbolg feast and in keeping with our motto: "We're Druids; we feast."

Recipes assume American measurement and Fahrenheit temperature settings.

Domi O'Brien


Crescent Rolls


Melt a stick (1/4 lb) of real butter in a large glass mixing bowl in
the microwave or in a saucepan. (You can use 1/2 lb if you want
extra-rich rolls)

Add 1 cup milk or light cream, warmed in saucepan or microwave to 100
to 115 degrees (slightly above body temperature, but not hot).

Add 2 to 4 tablespoons sugar. Stir.

Sift over it 4 cups unbleached white flour  (you may use half
whole-wheat flour but they will not be as light) and 2 packets active
dry yeast and a tablespoon of salt.

Add 4 eggs.

Mix with dough hooks at low speed or mix with large wooden spoon, then
knead with hands.

When well mixed and a little softer and stickier than a baby's bottom
pour 1/4 cup mild oil ( light olive or peanut or canola works) over.

Cover with plastic wrap or waxed paper and a clean dish towel and let
rise 45  minutes to an hour in a warm place or until doubled.

Preheat oven to 375.

Line two baking sheets with waxed paper or parchment paper.

Divide dough in quarters. For each quarter, put 1/4 cup flour on
pastry board, marble slab or waxed paper sheet.

Shape dough in ball; roll in flour; flatten to 9 to 10 inch circle;
butter or oil lightly; cut in 8 wedges; roll into 8 crescent rolls;
place on lined baking sheets.

Repeat with the rest of the dough.

Cover sheets; let rise half hour to 45 minutes or until rolls are
doubled in size.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden. Serve warm or cooled.

For pull-apart loaves, cut each quarter of the dough in 16 to 24
narrow wedges instead of 8 bigger ones. Grease 3 ten inch round pans
or one 16 inch pizza pan and arrange small shaped crescent rolls on
greased pan(s) to rise. Bake 25 to 30 minutes for smaller round pans
or 30 to 35 for  pizza pan. This works well for ritual bread.

Variants

Ham and cheese rolls. Spread circles of dough with thin sliced ham and
swiss cheese and prepared mustard before cutting and shaping. Serve
warm as appetizer or luncheon dish.

Sweet crescent rolls. Add one half cup sugar or Splenda to dough
before rising. Spread circles of dough with jam, cinnamon sugar,
almond paste,  sweetened cream cheese,  lekvar, lemon curd, or
prepared poppyseed filling.  Roll and shape; let rise. Bake; serve
warm or cooled and dusted with powdered sugar.

Herbed rolls: spread  dough rounds with olive oil or butter; sprinkle
with minced garlic and chopped herbs (rosemary, thyme, parsley, sage
are nice) to your taste; shape; let rise; bake.

Lamb in the Pot

Preheat oven to 400. Arrange in large roasting pan with lid:

6  to 8 lamb shanks (Or a leg of lamb or shoulder of lamb, bone-in)
3 to 4 cups  peeled quartered or small potatoes or 4 cups cooked
barley or quinoa
3 to4 cups cut carrots
2 to 3 cups quartered small onions
1 cut-up whole celery head
4 cups cooked or 2 cans white beans

In blender place
2 cups fresh basil leaves
8 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon salt
2 cups fresh parsley
1/2 half cup olive oil
Blend until chunky.

Pour over lamb and veggies.

Add 4 cups water.  (rinse blender container with water)

Cook  half an hour uncovered, then cover and reduce heat to 275 and
cook 3 to 4 hours or until very tender. (Can also be cooked in an 18
quart freestanding roaster-oven. My experience is it takes longer that
way.)

Serve with fresh bread or rolls and a salad with watercress or peppercress.

To reduce fat, cook 2 or 3 days ahead; chill; remove hardened fat from
the top;  remove bones if you like; reheat and serve.

Salmon of Wisdom

Preheat oven to 400.

Arrange 2 lb salmon fillet on baking sheet, skin side down. Brush with
honey; sprinkle lightly with coarse salt.

Bake 10 to 20 minutes depending on thickness, or until done to your liking.

Domi O'Brien


Herb and Cheese Pie

One one-lb box phyllo (fillo) dough, thawed if purchased frozen
3 lbs whole-milk ricotta cheese
half lb shredded mixed Italian cheeses (Parmesan, Romano, Asiago,  etc)
half lb feta cheese, crumbled
salt and pepper to taste
8 cloves garlic, minced
2 sweet onions, diced small
bunch fresh parsley, minced
bunch fresh dill weed, minced
1 lb fresh spinach, washed, dried, and chopped (baby spinach is best)
one lb unsalted butter, melted
one dozen eggs, preferably free range

You will need 2 baking pans 9 by 13 inches and a pastry brush and a
large wire whisk.

Preheat oven to 400.

Butter the pans using the pastry brush.

In large bowl, mix  cheeses, herbs, spinach, onion, garlic; salt and
pepper to taste. Then use the wire whisk to beat in the eggs one at a
time.

Layer about a third of the phyllo sheets into the two pans, buttering
each second sheet.

Spoon half of the egg and cheese mixture on top of the phyllo in the pans.

Layer another third of the phyllo in the pans, buttering every second sheet.

Add the rest of the egg and cheese mixture.

Layer the rest of the phyllo on top, buttering every second sheet.

Make sure edges are tucked and top is buttered. If you have any extra
butter pour it on top

Bake about an hour to an hour 15 minutes, or until deep golden brown
and set. Let sit 15 to 20 minutes before serving-- filling will be
very hot when it comes out of the oven.

Domi O'Brien


Roast Chicken

6 to 8 lb. roasting chicken
3 lemons
fresh tarragon
coarse salt
paprika
olive oil

Preheat the oven to 400.

Remove giblets from chicken (you can simmer them to make stock for
gravy if you like).

Place chicken in roasting pan.  Rub it with olive oil inside and out.
Cut lemons in half; squeeze them all over the chicken; place the
remaining peels/pulp inside the chicken. Place several sprigs of
tarragon in the chicken; chop the rest finely and sprinkle it all over
the chicken. Sprinkle the chicken with paprika and coarse salt. Roast
for 2 and a half to three hours, until golden brown, crispy-skinned,
and thoroughly cooked.

Domi O'Brien


Simple Salad

Mixed spring greens including watercress or peppercress if available,
tossed in bowl with pitted drained black olives, sliced red onion, and
segments of oranges or tangerines. Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar
or Italian dressing; sprinkle with coarse salt. Serve immediately.

Domi O'Brien


Mock Syllabub

Just before serving, whip a quart of heavy whipping cream to slightly
more than soft peaks; fold in a half cup of semi-sweet white wine such
as reisling  (or if you prefer to not use alcohol, tart apple juice
such as granny smith, or white grape juice) and a token for luck (such
as a clean shiny dollar coin).

Serve immediately from the bowl into individual dessert dishes with a
large spoon. If you want it a little more firm, when you whip it, whip
in a packet of whipped cream stabilizer or  a packet of instant
pudding mix (vanilla, cheesecake, or lemon).

   From Fred Field (June '45) of CA - 01/24/12 - "RE: Wheeler's Kandy Kitchen":

Hello Carol,        Tue. Jan. 24, 12

Here is an e-mail I sent to
       Dave Spriggs ('64 - of VA) earlier this month.  I reasoned that he would be the one most likely to do further research on "Wheeler's Kandy Kitchen."

However, I think I have seen it mentioned that Dave is off traveling somewhere, so probably the message is in his back pocket or some other place where he stores his good intentions.

Hello Dave,       Thu. Jan. 12, 2012

The phone no. (9147) on the   matchbook cover indicates that it was from the pre-dialing era.

In my June 1941 Beacon, all the phone numbers listed in the ads are pre-dial. So the Kandy Kitchen was in place as early as then.

The Feb. 1942 Beacon (my mid-Freshman term) shows that the NN dial system is installed and working. The initial NN dial system numbers were all 5-digit.

In 1941 my grandparents still lived on 30th Street in the 800 block. This was the last white block going east. Black residences began in the 1100 block at Roanoke Avenue.

On Chestnut Avenue at 30th Street, north-going numbers started at 3000 Chestnut, so 3008A would be several buildings north of 30th Street and likely upstairs.

Chestnut Avenue was a sort of "second layer" business street in 1941 NN. It was white residential from the low numbers going north up through 26th Street. Then further, began small stores (grocery, butcher shops, bakeries, hardware, etc.) Going north, past about 28th Street store ownerships then mostly leaned toward the black trade. No distinct line of demarcation that I remember. Green money worked everywhere.

Pearl Bailey described herself as "a Chestnut Avenue girl."

Hope this adds some perspective.

   Thank you so much for sharing this with us, Dools!

   My second great-grandfather, Capt. William Munford Tuck, CSA (16 Dec 1832 - 17 Oct 1899) participated in Pickett's Charge at the Battle of Gettysburg. As Commander of Company K, Longstreet's Division, he was one of the few who made it over that dreadful wall.  He was captured and taken to the POW camp for Confederate officers at Johnson's Island, Ohio.  At war's end, having been "relieved" of his horse, he walked home to Virginia, so broken and emaciated that his own family did not recognize him.

      From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 01/24/12 - "Five (5) lessons about the way we treat people":

Five (5) lessons about the way we treat people
 

1 - First Important Lesson - Cleaning Lady

During my second month of college, our professor gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student 
and had breezed through the questions until I read the last one:

"What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?"

Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall,
dark-haired and in her 50's, but how would I know her name?

I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before class ended,
one student asked if the last question would count toward our quiz grade.

"Absolutely, " said the professor. "In your careers, you will meet many people.  All are significant.
They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say "hello."

I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.


2 - Second Important Lesson - Pickup in the Rain

One night, at 11:30 PM, an older African American woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway
trying to endure a lashing rain storm. Her car had broken down and she desperately needed a ride.
Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car. A young white man stopped to help her, generally
unheard of in those conflict-filled 1960's. The man took her to safety, helped her get assistance and put her
into a taxicab.

She seemed to be in a big hurry, but wrote down his address and thanked him. Seven days went by and a
knock came on the man's door. To his surprise, a giant console color TV was delivered to his home.
A special note was attached.

It read:
"Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway the other night. The rain drenched not only my
clothes, but also my spirits.  Then you came along. Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying
husband's' bedside just before he passed away... God bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving others."

Sincerely,
Mrs. Nat King Cole


3 - Third Important Lesson - Always remember those who serve.


In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10-year-old boy entered a hotel coffee shop
and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him.

"How much is an ice cream sundae?" he asked.

"Fifty cents," replied the waitress.

The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied the coins in it.

"Well, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?" he inquired.

By now more people were waiting for a table and the waitress was growing impatient.

"Thirty-five cents," she brusquely replied.

The little boy again counted his coins.

"I'll have the plain ice cream," he said.

The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away.  The boy finished the ice
cream, paid the cashier and left.  When the waitress came back, she began to cry as she wiped down
the table.  There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were two nickels and five pennies..

You see, he couldn't have the sundae, because he had to have enough left to leave her a tip.


4 - Fourth Important Lesson - The Obstacle in Our Path

In ancient times, a King had a boulder placed on a roadway.  Then he hid himself and watched to see if
anyone would remove the huge rock.  Some of the King's' wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by
and simply walked around it.  Many loudly blamed the King for not keeping the roads clear, but none did
anything about getting the stone out of the way.

Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables.  Upon approaching the boulder, the
peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road.  After much pushing
and straining, he finally succeeded. After the peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed
a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note
from the King indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway. 
The peasant learned what many of us never understand!

Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve our condition.


5 - Fifth Important Lesson - Giving When it Counts...

Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at a hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liz who
was suffering from a rare and serious disease.  Her only chance of recovery appeared to be a blood
transfusion from her 5-year old brother, who had miraculously survived the same disease and had
developed the antibodies needed to combat the illness.  The doctor explained the situation to her
little brother, and asked the little boy if he would be willing to give his blood to his sister.

I saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a deep breath and saying, "Yes, I'll do it if it will
save her."  As the transfusion progressed, he lay in bed next to his sister and smiled, as we all did,
seeing the color returning to her cheek. Then his face grew pale and his smile faded.

He looked up at the doctor and asked with a trembling voice, "Will I start to die right away?"

Being young, the little boy had misunderstood the doctor; he thought he was going to have to give
his sister all of his blood in order to save her.


..... ”Live with no regrets,
Treat people the way you want to be treated,
Work like you don’t need the money,
Love like you’ve never been hurt,
and
Dance like you do when nobody’s watching.”

 

    Thank you so much, Dools!

   The second story, however lovely, is completely apocryphal, but the truth of the lesson remains.

  
Nat King Cole was born March 17, 1919 in Montgomery, Alabama, and died in Santa Monica, California of lung cancer on 15 Feb 1965. He had been hospitalized in Dec 1964. His left lung was removed on 25 Jan 1965. At least from that moment forward, Maria Cole was with him every day.

      From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 01/22/12 - "1st grade":

Not new, but still funny:-)!!
 
A 1st grade school teacher had twenty-six students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the 1st half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb. It's hard to believe these were actually done by first graders. Their insight may surprise you.. While reading, keep in mind that these are first-graders, 6-year-olds, because the last one is a classic!

      From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 01/24/12 - "So, Why Do You Want a Divorce?":

So, Why Do You Want a Divorce?...
 

A judge was interviewing a woman regarding her pending divorce, and asked, "What are the grounds for your divorce?"

She replied, "About four acres and a nice little home in the middle of the property with a stream running by."
 
"No," he said, "I mean what is the foundation of this case?"
 
"It is made of concrete, brick and mortar," she responded.

"I mean," he continued, "What are your relations like?"
 
"I have an aunt and uncle living here in town, and so do my husband's parents."

 He said, "Do you have a real grudge?"

"No," she replied, "We have a two-car carport and have never really needed one."

"Please," he tried again, "is there any infidelity in your marriage?"
 
"Yes, both my son and daughter have stereo sets. We don't necessarily like the music, but the answer to your questions is yes."
 
"Ma'am, does your husband ever beat you up?"

"Yes," she responded, "about twice a week he gets up earlier than I do."

Finally, in frustration, the judge asked, "So, why do you want a divorce?"
 
"Oh, I don't want a divorce," she replied. "I've never wanted a divorce. My husband does. He said he can't communicate with me!"

      Thanks again, Dools!

Maximum Consumption

Written by Ray Davies (b. 21 June 1944)

Recorded by The Kinks, 1972


I'll have some clam chowder, followed by beef steak on rye
Pumpkin pie, whipped cream and coffee,
I wanna green salad on the side,
Don't forget the french fries,
Pizza pie, garlic and anchovie.
I keep burning up calories as fast as I keep putting them down,
Eat food, put it in my mouth,
Chew it up, swallow it down,
I'll have two eggs, over light, home made apple pie
Cole slaw as a side order.
I gotta stay fit, stay alive, eat food to sustain a non-stop high-grade performer.
The pace is continual, sure keeps running me down
Don't you know that you gotta eat food,
Don't you know that you gotta refuel.
I'm a Maximum Consumption, super-grade performer.
High powered machine,
Go steady on my clutch, go easy on the hills
And you'll get a lot of mileage out of me.
I'm so easy to drive, and I'm an excellent ride,
Excessive living sure keeps running me down
You've got to learn to use the Maximum Juice
That's how you get the maximum use.
Life keeps using me, keeps on abusing me, mentally and physically.
I gotta stay fit, stay alive, need fuel inside, eat food to survive
Maximum Consumption sure keeps running me down
Don't you know that you gotta eat food
Don't you know that it's good for you.
I'm a Maximum Consumption,
Non-stop machine
Total automation perpetual motion.
