“Before you contradict an old man, my fair friend,
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I couldn't seem to learn very much about this song except that it sounds very happy, and hey - the pictures are from the annual Virginia Tech International Street Fair!

Had I realized the sad news which was to follow, I probably would not have deliberately selected such a chirpy little tune.....
From Elizabeth Tedder Nunnally ('68) of VA - 02/08/12, 9:04 PM - "Death":
It is with a great loss
and broken heart that I wanted to let everyone know that I lost my
daughter, Susan Marie Bradley, on Sunday, February 5, 2012. She died
very unexpectedly. Her father,
Edward Bradley, also graduated from NNHS in the Class of '62. This has
truly been the hardest thing I have had to handle. Thanks for letting
the NNHS family know the loss that we have had.
Oh, Elizabeth! I'm so very, very sorry! I cannot begin to imagine your pain and loss, but you're in my thoughts and prayers already, and will soon be in those of the rest of our Typhoon Family.

(Harty - Bardolph HS, IL - '61 - of
NC) Distant Cousin, Elaine of MO - 02/07/12 - "PRAYER REQUEST":
|THIS IS MY DEAR
FRIEND. """BRENDA TAYLOR""""FROM HERE IN BENTON, PLEASE PRAY FOR
HER ,,, ONE SPECIAL LADY THIS IS FROM HER DAUGHTER, DEBBIE
I am calling all my faithful prayer partners. I need prayer for my Momma. She left for AZ about three weeks ago, once she got there she was in horrible pain and started running a fever. My Aunt Pat took her to ER and she stayed in the hospital for a week, the diagnosis was SHINGLES! ......They have moved her to an assisted living nursing home and have her in isolation! First, she is in severe pain, and has a rash/blisters on her foot, leg, and side. She can not walk ( the rash, blisters are on her foot) and is having a pretty hard time with it all, to say the least. The doctor told her the pain could last 6-9 months! She has asked me twice to request prayer for her. WE SERVE an AMAZING GOD and trust him for healing! HE IS THE GREAT PHYSICIAN......By his stripes she is healed!! Please pray scripture and I know that God's word does not return to him void and will do what it says it will do...... Thank you in advance for your support and prayers....I will keep you posted as I know more! OH! by the way.....I hate Satan!!
YOWZERONI! Thanks, Dools! We've added Brenda's name to our Prayer Roll:

From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 02/07/12 - "A prayer was answered":
|This is a story written by
a doctor who worked in Africa:
One night I had
worked hard to help a mother in the labor ward; but in spite of all
we could do, she died, leaving us with a tiny, premature baby and a
crying two-year-old daughter. We would have difficulty keeping the
baby alive; as we had no incubator (we had no electricity to run an
WOWZERONI! Thanks, Dools!
From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of TX (newly returned home from a year's deployment to "the lands dark and dusty") - 02/07/12 - "RE: A prayer was answered":
I hope this is a real story. That would be cool. But regardless, the principle is correct. Our Father does answer our prayers, truly all of them, in so many diverse ways. It is hard to truly describe the power and impact of prayer. Regardless-its importance is clear...the Savior himself set the model in this for us. Thanks for the email on the power of prayer...
Thank you, Brent! Isn't that an amazing story?!? And the best part is - it IS true!

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 02/03/12 - "Friday":
What's this daily charge for "Fruit?" the hotel guess asked the manager. "We didn't eat any."
"But the fruit was place in your room every day. It isn't our fault you didn't take advantage of it."
"I see," said the man as he subtracted $150.00 from the bill.
"What are you doing?" sputtered the manager.
"I'm subtracting $50 dollars a day for your kissing my wife."
"What? I didn't kiss your wife."
"Ah," replied the man, "but she was there."
We all fail sometimes. But there's something about failing with style. Here are some of the best test paper blunders from the most clueless - and inventive - of students.

The day a person becomes a cynic is the day he loses his youth.
TODAY'S THRIFTY TIP:
* To raise revenue, many U.S. libraries and municipalities are turning unpaid debts over to collection agencies. Once an agency takes over your debt, even if it is only $20, you can count on a big dent in your credit score--100 points or more.
* Making insignificant claims on your home owner's insurance can increase your monthly premiums, and you could even be dropped as a customer. You should pay small repairs (those less than $1,000 or less than your deductible) out of pocket.
* If at all possible, do not cash out your 401(k) when you leave your job. Roll over funds into a personal IRA so your money continues to grow, tax-deferred. In 20 years, $2,500, the average 401(k) cash-out, can grow to $11,652.
* If you find yourself out of work don't just stop paying on your student loan. If you stop paying a $20,000 loan with a 6.8 percent interest rate for 12 months, you'll pay an extra $1,360 in interest and fees. Let your loan provider know that you're out of work. By law, every lender must offer programs for customers experiencing economic hardship.
