“All I know is that you love me...in my dreams.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today's theme is prompted by the prevailing state of my mind for the past couple of months.....
BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTsvs-pAGDc - Dazed and Confused - Jake Holmes, June 1967 (no video)
BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lkb1R_yif9I - Dazed and Confused - Led Zeppelin, Supershow, 1969
|"Dazed and Confused" is a song originally written
and performed by
Jake Holmes. It was covered by
the Yardbirds, and later reworked by
Led Zeppelin who hold a separate copyright on the song.
Singer-songwriter Jake Holmes wrote and recorded "Dazed and Confused" for his debut solo album "The Above Ground Sound" of Jake Holmes, released in June 1967. Like the other tracks on the album, the song does not include any drums. It was recorded entirely with the trio of Holmes on guitar, keyboard and vocals, Ted Irwin on guitar and Rick Randle on bass. The song has been incorrectly labelled as a tale about a bad acid trip. Holmes himself has confirmed that this is not the case. In 2001 he gave an interview to Shindig! magazine and said this about "Dazed and Confused":
In June 2010, Jake Holmes sued Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page for copyright infringement, claiming to have written and recorded "Dazed and Confused" two years before it appeared on Led Zeppelin's debut album. In court documents Holmes cited a 1967 copyright registration for "Dazed and Confused" which was renewed in 1995. This court case (Case No. CV10-4789-DMG-PJW) was "dismissed with prejudice", presumably because the parties settled out of court—in January 2012.
..... The song is included in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 02/02/15:
|“Never give up on
anyone. And that includes not giving up on yourself.”
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Thanks so much, Susan!
From Henry Hoyle ('65) of Northern VA - 02/02/14:
|Hi Cousin Carol,
... I’m happy to be able to help a little bit with your NNHS work—it helps to keep us all together.
Thank you so very much, Cousin Henry!
From My Daughter, Adrienne Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL) of NC - 02/02/15 - "When You Go":
|Mama, doesn't this song just make you want to
OOOH! Yes, it does! Thanks for sharing it, Adrienne!
From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 02/02/15 - "Life from the seat of a tractor":
This is so true!
Life from the seat of a tractor.
An old Farmer's Words of Wisdom we could all live by.......
Old Farmer's Advice:
Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.
Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.
Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.
Words that soak into your ears are whispered... not yelled.
Meanness don't just happen overnight.
Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.
Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.
It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge.
You cannot unsay a cruel word.
Every path has a few puddles.
When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.
The best sermons are lived, not preached.
Most of the stuff people worry about ain't never gonna happen anyway.
Don't judge folks by their relatives.
Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
Live a good, honorable life... Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.
Don't interfere with something that ain't bothering you none.
Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a Rain dance.
If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging.
Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.
The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every morning.
Always drink upstream from the herd.
Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.
Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than putting it back in.
If you get to thinking you're a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else's dog around..
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply.
Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.
Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.
|These are positively delicious, Dools! Thanks so much!|
From Mayim Bialik (North Hollywood High School, CA - '93) of CA - 02/02/15 - "Don't Fall for that Similac Commercial":
|Remember how everyone got
mad at me because I didn't like "Frozen"? Well, I don't like that
Similac ad about ending mommy wars either, so prepare to be mad at me
again! Wrote about why for Kveller.com.
Mad at you?!? You'll hear nothing but applause from me, Mayim! Thank you so much!
I can no longer remember the exact quotation (nor can I seem to find it), but I believe the anthropologist Ashley Montagu (28 June 1905 - 26 Nov 1999) once said, "The greatest forces for evil in this world are those which seek to keep a child from its mother's breast."
From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 02/02/15 - "A quick must see about religion":
|I think that this might
have been around earlier, but it bears repeating because the message is
so strong. Without religion as most Americans know it, there would be no
America. May we always remember who we are, why we are here on Earth,
and where we hope to be when this life ends. God Bless America!
Interesting, and food for thought.
Thank you, Haul Party!

this morning, but I didn't like it.”
From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 01/09/15 - "A few examples of why we seniors get confused (#24 in a series of 26)":

WOWZERS! Thank you, Haul Party!

BONUS VALENTINE CROCHET PATTERN (Wal, you wouldn't want a confusing pattern, would ja? ):
|http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/tree-hearts - Linda Cyr's Tree Hearts - This was one of my favorite, most adaptable patterns from a while back; I also featured it here:|
It's quite pretty made with worsted
weight yarn, but when worked with two strands of #10 crochet thread held
together using a size B crochet hook, it creates a very elegant heart -
and as suitable for Valentine's Day as for Christmas!
The design works up quickly. It takes me about an hour a heart - and I am a super-slow crocheter (despite 57 years of practice)! I used 1/4" white ribbon to trim these smaller versions, which are about 2'' high and 3" wide.

FINALLY:From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/02/15:
A new business was opening, and one of the owner’s friends sent flowers for the occasion. But when the owner read the card with the flowers, it said. “Rest in Peace”
The owner was little upset and called the florist to complain. After he had told the florist about the obvious mistake, the florist said, “Sir, I’m really sorry for the mistake, but rather than getting angry, you should imagine this: Somewhere there is a funeral taking place today, and they have flowers with a note saying, “Congratulations on your new location.”
