All My Loving

You can't stop loving or wanting to love because when its right it's the best thing in the world.
When you're in a relationship and its good, even if nothing else in your life is right,
you feel like your whole world is complete.”

 - Keith Sweat
(b. 22 July 1961)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,  

   This was the only possible theme for today's Newsletter (as, if you don't remember, you shall soon learn)! 

BONUS - All My Loving - The Beatles


"All My Loving" is a song by the Beatles, written by Paul McCartney[2] (credited to Lennon–McCartney), from the 1963 album With The Beatles. Though it was not released as a single in the United Kingdom or the United States, it drew considerable radio airplay, prompting EMI to issue it as the title track of an EP.[3] The song was released as a single in Canada, where it became a number one hit. The Canadian single was imported into the US in enough quantities to peak at number 45 on the Billboard Hot 100 in April 1964.[4][5] It was the first song most Americans ever heard the group sing as it was the opening song on their debut on Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964.

According to journalist Bill Harry, McCartney thought of the lyrics whilst shaving,[6] though McCartney told biographer Barry Miles that he wrote them while on a tour bus.[2] He also said, "It was the first song I'd ever written the words first. I never wrote words first, it was always some kind of accompaniment. I've hardly ever done it since either."[2] The lyrics follow the "letter song" model as used on "P.S. I Love You",[3] the B-side of their first single. After arriving at the location of the gig, he wrote the music on a piano backstage.[2]

McCartney originally envisioned it as a country & western song, and George Harrison added a Nashville-style guitar solo.[2][3] John Lennon's rhythm guitar track uses quickly strummed triplets similar to "Da Doo Ron Ron" by The Crystals, a song that was popular at the time.[3] McCartney added a walking bass line...[7]

It has been hypothesized that the piece draws inspiration from the Dave Brubeck Quartet's 1959 song "Kathy's Waltz"...[9]

"All My Loving" has been praised by multiple critics. Ian MacDonald said, "The innocence of early Sixties British pop is perfectly distilled in the eloquent simplicity of this number" and described the song as helping McCartney be seen as more of an equal to Lennon.[3] Richie Unterberger of Allmusic said it "was arguably the best LP-only track the Beatles did before 1964" and that if it had been released as a single in America it would have been a huge hit...[18]

From My Friend, Daniel, of UT - 02/08/15:

“Let us not treat lightly the great things we have received from the hand of the Lord! His word is one of the most valuable gifts He has given us. I urge you to recommit yourselves to a study of the scriptures. Immerse yourselves in them daily so you will have the power of the Spirit to attend you in your callings. Read them in your families and teach your children to love and treasure them.”

- Ezra Taft Benson
(04 Aug 1899 - 30 May 1994

    Thanks so much, Daniel!

I hope you are doing well. You do so much and I admire you beyond words.

In case you are unaware, I wanted to report several deaths……I know you do not need to know of more of these at this time.

First,      Mary Frances Langley Grasty, class of Feb. 1945, passed away on Dec. 26, 2014. She was a member of Orcutt Baptist Church. Her funeral was on January 3rd at Orcutt Baptist Church. - COMPLETED AT LAST ON 02/09/15

... Third,        Valley Kane Roy, Jr., class of June 1945, passed away January 27, 2015. He was a first cousin of my mother and I think all of his siblings graduated from N.N.H.S. His sisters who preceded him in death are Helen and Lois….. One sister still lives, Jean, of Georgia. Valley was quite popular and was “Best Looking” in the Hall of Fame, as was his nephew,    Wayne Owens, class of 1967. I attended his funeral last Sunday at Peninsula Funeral Home in Newport News. His obituary was in the Daily Press on last Saturday, January 31. It had been in the paper on Friday; however, they spelled his last name as Joy……they corrected it the next day, to be Roy. - Updated on 02/09/15

... Thank you, Carol, for all of your work.

Best Regards, Fred Mays, Class of 1960 of Newport News, VA

   Thank you so much, Fred - especially for your very kind words!

   From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 02/08/15 - "God Looked Down Upon Seniors":

God Looked Down upon Seniors. . . .

Most seniors never get enough exercise. So, in his wisdom, God decreed that seniors would become forgetful that they would have to search for their glasses, keys, and other things misplaced and move around more. And God looked down and saw that it was good.

Then God saw there was yet another need. So God in his wisdom made seniors lose coordination that they would drop things, which would require them to bend and reach and stretch. And God looked down and saw that it was good.

Then God considered the functioning of senior bladders and decided that in His wisdom there might be calls of nature more frequently, requiring more walking to the relief station, which would burn calories. God looked down and saw that it was good.

Seniors were obliged to exercise more from these senior shortcomings and did become more active as a result. So if you find you are required to get up and down more as you age,
remember it's God's will and in your best interest, even though you mutter under your breath.

Can I get an Amen? Let it be! And it is good.


Thanks, Billy! Okay, you win, AMEN!

      From Buster Vest ('63) of VA - 02/06/15 - "Paper Is Dead?":

All My Loving

Written by Paul McCartney (18 June 1942) (credited to Lennon–McCartney)

Recorded by the Beatles, 1963

Close your eyes and I'll kiss you
Tomorrow I'll miss you
Remember I'll always be true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you

I'll pretend that I'm kissing
The lips I am missing
And hope that my dreams will come true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you

All my loving, I will send to you
All my loving, darling I'll be true

Close your eyes and I'll kiss you
Tomorrow I'll miss you
Remember I'll always be true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you

All my loving, I will send to you
All my loving, darling I'll be true
All my loving, All my loving
Woo, all my loving, I will send to you
