Eighteen Yellow Roses

“Life is a mosaic of pleasure and pain - grief is an interval between two moments
of joy. Peace is the interlude between two wars. You have no rose without a thorn;
the diligent picker will avoid the pricks and gather the flower.

- Sri Sathya Sai Baba
(b. 23 Nov 1926)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   I think I tried using this song years ago and was unable to locate it - proving (I suppose) that all things come to those who wait.

  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 01/28/10 - "HASH BROWN QUICHE.....YUMMY !!!!!":


QUICK, EASY AND OH SO GOOD!!!

Hash Brown Quiche

Recipes courtesy Paula Deen, 2007

Ingredients
  • 3 cups, shredded frozen hash browns, thawed and drained
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 3/4 cup diced cooked ham
  • 1/2 cup diced green onions
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Gently press the drained hash browns between paper towels to dry them as best as possible. In a 9-inch pie plate, toss the hash browns with the melted butter into the plate. Press them into the bottom and up the sides to form a crust. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown and starting to crisp.

Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. When the hash brown crust is ready pour the egg mixture over it and return to the oven.

Lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees F and bake for about 30 minutes until the quiche is light golden brown on top and puffed.

      From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 01/28/10 - "BORDERS":

Have you seen this one? Why are we so stupid? Is it a natural trait or did we have to work on it? Being stupid does take some effort!! I mean, just think of all the things you have to remember to do incorrectly. Forrest had it right: "Stupid is as stupid does."
 

BORDERS

 I just want to make sure I got this right:

  IF YOU CROSS THE NORTH KOREAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET 12 YEARS HARD LABOR.

  IF YOU CROSS THE IRANIAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU ARE DETAINED INDEFINITELY.

  IF YOU CROSS THE AFGHAN BORDER ILLEGALLY, YOU GET SHOT.

  IF YOU CROSS THE SAUDI ARABIAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE JAILED.

  IF YOU CROSS THE CHINESE BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU MAY NEVER BE HEARD FROM
AGAIN.

  IF YOU CROSS THE VENEZUELAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE BRANDED A SPY AND
YOUR FATE WILL BE SEALED.

  IF YOU CROSS THE CUBAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE THROWN INTO POLITICAL
PRISON TO ROT.
 
BUT

  IF YOU CROSS THE U.S. BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET

  A JOB,

  A DRIVERS LICENSE,

  SOCIAL SECURITY CARD,

  WELFARE, FOOD STAMPS,

  CREDIT CARDS,

  SUBSIDIZED RENT OR A LOAN TO BUY A HOUSE,

  FREE EDUCATION,

  FREE HEALTH CARE,

  A LOBBYIST IN WASHINGTON,

  BILLIONS OF DOLLARS WORTH OF PUBLIC DOCUMENTS PRINTED IN YOUR LANGUAGE,

  THE RIGHT TO CARRY YOUR COUNTRY'S FLAG WHILE YOU PROTEST THAT YOU DON'T
GET ENOUGH RESPECT,

  AND, IN MANY INSTANCES, YOU CAN VOTE.

  O'YEA, BECOME PRESIDENT!

  I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE I HAD A FIRM GRASP ON THE SITUATION.
    Thanks, Wayne Honey! Hey, is this the greatest country in the world or what?!?


  From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 10/2810 - "As Time Passes...":

This is not funny  !!!
 
Bill
 

As Time Passes...

A group of 40 years old buddies discuss and discuss where they should meet for dinner.

Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at the Gausthof zum Lowen restaurant because the waitresses there have low cut blouses and nice breasts.

10 years later, at 50 years of age, the group meets again and once again they discuss and discuss where they should meet. Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at the Gausthof zum Lowen because the food there is very good and the wine selection is good also.

10 years later at 60 years of age, the group meets again and once again they discuss and discuss where they should meet. Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at the Gausthof zum Lowen because they can eat there in peace and quiet and the restaurant is smoke free.

10 years later, at 70 years of age, the group meets again and once again they discuss and discuss where they should meet. Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at the Gausthof zum Lowen because the restaurant is wheel chair accessible and they even have an elevator.

10 years later, at 80 years of age, the group meets again and once again they discuss and discuss where they should meet. Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at the Gausthof zum Lowen because that would be a great idea because they have never been there before.  

   Thanks, Bill! And I'm sorry to disagree with you, but this is downright hysterical!


      From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 01/27/10 - "Have a great rest of the week!":

All In The Math
 
Rushing to work, I was driving too fast and as a result was pulled over by the highway patrol. The state trooper noticed that my shirt had the name of a local high school on it. "I teach math there," I explained.

The trooper smiled, and said, "Okay, here's a problem. A teacher is speeding down the highway at 16 m.p.h. over the limit. At $12 for every mile, plus $40 court costs, plus the rise in her insurance, what's her total cost?"

I replied, "Taking that total, subtracting the low salary I receive, multiplying by the number of kids who hate math, then adding to that the fact that none of us would be anywhere without teachers, I'd say zero."

He handed me back my license. "Math was never my favorite subject," he admitted. "Please slow down."

A Bit Of Wisdom
 
"The happiest people are rarely the richest, or the most beautiful, or even the most talented... Their eyes are turned outward; they are aware, compassionate. They have the capacity to love."

- Jane Canfield

 
   AMEN to both of these! Thanks, Shari!

FINALLY:

From ArcaMax Jokes - 01/28/09:

Borrowed the Car

After shopping for most of the day, a couple returns to find their car has been stolen. They go to the police station to make a full report. Then, a detective drives them back to the parking lot to see if any evidence can be found at the scene of the crime. To their amazement, the car has been returned.

There is an envelope on the windshield with a note of apology and two tickets to a music concert. The note reads, "I apologize for taking your car, but my wife was having a baby and I had to hot-wire your ignition to rush her to the hospital. Please forgive the inconvenience. Here are two tickets for tonight's concert of Garth Brooks, the country-and-western music star."

Their faith in humanity restored, the couple attend the concert and return home late. They find their house has been robbed. Valuable goods have been taken from throughout the house, from basement to attic. And, there is a note on the door reading, "Well, you still have your car. I have to put my newly born kid through college somehow, don't I?"

Problem with a Dog

Eighteen Yellow Roses

Written and recorded by Bobby Darin, 1963
(14 May 1936 - 20 Dec 1973)

Recorded by Marty Robbins, 19__
(26 Sept 1925 – 08 Dec 1982)


Eighteen yellow roses came today....
Eighteen yellow roses in a pretty bouquet
When the boy came to the door
I didn't know what to say....

But eighteen yellow roses came today.

I opened up the card to see what it said...
I couldn't believe my eyes
When I had read....
Though you belong to another, I love you anyway.

Yes. eighteen yellow roses came today

I never doubted your love for a minute
I always thought that you would be true
But now this box and the flowers in it
I guess there's nothin' left for me to do.....

But ask to meet the boy that's done this thing
And find out if he's got plans to buy you a ring
'Cause eighteen yellow roses will wilt and die one day....

But a father's love will never fade away...

Will never fade away..............
