From Sydney Dearing ('56) of TN -01/29/11 - "You're Baaack!":
I was having so many intermittent and annoying little problems with my old computer which I had for years (one of the most annoying being the inability to receive your newsletters) that I finally bit the bullet and bought a new computer and got a new email provider (same e-mail address though) and Woo Hoo youre back .
Every time I open my e-mail and see a new NNHS newsletter its like a ray of sunshine after a dreary, rainy day. Im keeping my fingers crossed .
Well, that's super-duper news! Welcome back, Sydney! We've missed you!
From Domi O'Brien ('64) of NH - 01/29/11 - "something for the newsletter":

From http://www.SelfGrowth.com - 01/29/11 - "Perfectionism":
Perfectionism With 4 Easy Steps
By Janna ChinAre you a
perfectionist? Is the need for other people's approval a
driving force in all that you do? Do you feel like nothing
is ever good enough?
From LadyHawke's Weekly Jokes - 01/30/11:
I've seen two shows recently on female mid-life that went on and on about how mid-life is a GREAT time for women. Just last week Oprah had a whole show on how great menopause will be...
Puh-leeeeeeze! I've had a few thoughts of my own and would like to share them with you. Whether you girls are pushing 40 or 50, (or just pushing your luck), you'll probably relate.
Mid-life is when the growth of hair on our legs slows down. This gives us plenty of time to care for our newly acquired mustache.
In mid-life women no longer have upper arms, we have wingspans.
We are no longer women in sleeveless shirts, we are flying squirrels in drag.
Mid-life is when you are standing naked, feel something rub against the back of your thighs and realize that it's just your soggy butt.
Mid-life is when you go for a mammogram and realize that it is the only time someone will ask you to appear topless on film.
Mid-life is when you want to grab every firm 'young lovely' in a tube top and scream, "Listen honey, even the Roman Empire fell, and those will too!"
Mid-life brings with it the wisdom to know that life throws us curves.. and we're sitting on our biggest ones.

Words by Sammy Cahn (18 June 1913 - 15 Jan 1993)
Music by Nicholas Brodzsky (20 April 1905 - 24 Dec, 1958), 1949/50
1921 - 07 Oct 1959)
Be my love
For no one else can end this yearning
This need that you and you alone create
Just fill my arms
The way you've filled my dreams
The dreams that you inspire
With every sweet desire
Be my love
And with your kisses set me burning
One kiss is all I need to seal my fate
And hand in hand
We'll find love's promised land
There'll be no one but you for me
If you will be my love
