From My Daughter of Other Parents, Megan Fulmer Mansfield (Marshall HS, TX - 2002) of TX - 01/24/14 - "RE: " Brent (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL - '90 - of AL)":
I'm glad Brent is doing better. I had no idea what was going on! My phone is crazy and I do not get a lot of texts people send to me. So if you have texted me, I'm not ignoring you, I just haven't gotten them!
Hopefully the next time you hear from us we will have another little one here!
Thanks, Megan! Even though he's vastly improved, on Friday, Brent was in a lot of pain along his incision, more than he had been lately (which is normal), so he asked that we keep the prayers coming.
We are so excited about your new little baby girl! Two more weeks, right? Counting this fifth one of yours, that will give us 23 "grandchildren", 11 boys and 12 girls!

From George Helliesen ('61) of MI - 01/25/14 - " Yogi Berra":
|Lawrence Peter Berra was born in
St. Louis, Missouri on May 12, 1925. He played Major League Baseball for
19 years for the New York Yankees.
He played on 10 World Series Championship teams, is a MLB Hall of Famer and has some awe-inspiring stats. His name is consistently brought up as one of the best catchers in baseball history, and he was voted to the Team of the Century in 1999.
Amazing accomplishments aside, they probably aren't how you know Lawrence. You know him as Yogi, a nickname given to him by a friend who likened his cross-legged sitting to a yogi.
Yogi is famous for his fractured English, and sometimes nonsensical quotes, but there seems to be no end to his fan's love for him.
Here are 25 Yogi Berra quotes that will make you shake your head and smile.
1. "It's like deja vu
all over again."

BONUS MAGIC RECIPES:
Rosmerta's Recipes - Shepherd's Pie by Sabrina - "Harry
ate his Shepherd's Pie without much of an appetite in Harry Potter

Professor Lockhart and answer his fan mail."
http://www.mugglenet.com/misc/rosmertas/toadinahole.shtml - Rosmerta's Recipes - Toad in the Hole - "Toad in the Hole is a traditional English dish consisting of sausages in a Yorkshire pudding batter. But where did the name 'Toad in the Hole' come from? Some say it's because the sausages stick up out of the batter and resemble a toad poking it's head out of it's hole. It doesn't, but oh well."
http://www.mugglenet.com/misc/rosmertas/rockcakesbymelinda.shtml - Rosmerta's Recipes - Rock Cakes by Melinda - "This recipe from Melinda will not have you breaking your teeth like Hagrid's rock cakes."
http://www.mugglenet.com/misc/rosmertas/dirtcakes.shtml - Rosmerta's Recipes - Hagrid's Dirty Cakes - "Hagrid's meals are not usually chosen over Mrs. Weasley's. But Jessica Kathryn submitted Hagrid's recipe for Dirty Cakes, which are an absolute favorite made with love. "
http://www.mugglenet.com/misc/rosmertas/lovepotionbyalison.shtml - Rosmerta's Recipes - Love Potion by Alison - "Ron Weasley declares his feelings for Romilda Vane to Harry Potter while under the effect of the Love Potion in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince."
From www.ajokeaday.com - 01/25/14:
|A man was sick and
tired of going to work every day while his wife stayed at home. He
wanted her to see what he went through each day, so he prayed, "Dear
Lord, I go to work every day and put in eight hours of hard work, while
my wife merely stays at home. I want her to know what I go through, so
please create a trade in our bodies".
God, in His infinite
wisdom, granted the man's wish.
The next morning he awoke and immediately knelt by the bed and said, "Lord, I don't know what I was thinking. I was so wrong to envy my wife's being able to stay home all day. Please, O please, let us trade back!"
The Lord, in his infinite wisdom, replied, "My son, I feel you have learned your lesson and I will be happy to change things back to the way they were. You'll just have to wait 9 months though, because you got pregnant last night!!!"
