Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
We first used this golden oldie for a Newsletter exactly six years ago today:
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syMjvdK2wDo - My Prayer - The Platters, 1956
"My Prayer" is a 1939 popular song with music by the famous salon violinist Georges Boulanger and lyrics by Jimmy Kennedy. It was originally written by Boulanger with the title "Avant de Mourir" in 1926. The lyrics for this version were added by Kennedy in 1939. Glenn Miller recorded the song that year for a #2 hit, and The Ink Spots' version reached #3 as well that year.  It has been recorded many times since, but the biggest hit version was a revival in 1956 by The Platters. This version reached #1 on the charts and was featured in the 2008 film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Lovely to look at, but oh so dangerous when those icicles start thawing and breaking off. This was taken today by my nephew who works for Verizon and keeps the phone lines up and buzzing. I would not want his job!!!|

FINALLY:From Will and Guy's Joke of the Day - 01/27/11:
So-Called "True Story" *
Marine Corps General Reinwald was interviewed on the radio concerning guns and children.
This is a portion of an American National Public Radio (NPR) interview between a female interviewer and US Marine Corps General Reinwald who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military installation:
FEMALE INTERVIEWER: So, General Reinwald, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?
GENERAL REINWALD: We're going to teach the Boy Scouts climbing, canoeing, archery and shooting.
FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?
GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range.
FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?
GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.
FEMALE INTERVIEWER: But you're equipping them to become violent killers.
GENERAL REINWALD: Well, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?
The radio went silent and the interview ended.
* Footnote - Confession time
The saga of General Reinwald is an urban myth. Internet archaeologists have traced this funny army back to a Welsh broadcast with a scout master in 1997. As with all good stories, in the intervening years it has been adapted and Americanized. Will and Guy thank Nancy Hoagland for supplying this extra research and insight into the myth of General Reinwald.

Music by Georges Boulanger (18 Apr 1893 – 03 June 1958), 1926
Lyrics by Jimmy Kennedy (20 July 1902 – 06 Apr 1984), 1939
When the twilight is gone and no songbirds are singing
When the twilight is gone you come into my heart
And here in my heart you will stay while I pray
My prayer is to linger with you
At the end of the day in a dream that's divine
My prayer is a rapture in blue
With the world far away and your lips close to mine
Tonight while our hearts are aglow
Oh tell me the words that I'm longing to know
My prayer and the answer you give
May they still be the same for as long as we live
That you'll always be there at the end of my prayer
