02/18/17 - NNHS Newsletter - Ivory Tower

“Living in a tower, however secure it may feel, is hardly a social attribute.”

- Dirk Bogarde  
(28 Mar 1921 - 08 May 1999)

“I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself
in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.”

- Sir Isaac Newton
(25 Dec 1642 - 20 Mar 1727 [NS: 04 Jan 1643 - 31 March 1727] )

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   The theme song for today's Newsletter was released in two very popular versions in 1956. I quickly memorized it and belted it out whenever possible - which, given the lyrics, must have sounded a bit strange, coming from a nine-year old.

   While I was a big fan of Gale Storm as an actress, I personally vastly preferred Cathy Carr's rendition of the song. See what you think:

"Ivory Tower" is a popular song written by Jack Fulton and Lois Steele. Popular versions by Cathy Carr and Gale Storm, and a rhythm & blues version by Otis Williams and the Charms all received major popularity in 1956. Carr's version reached #2 and Storm's #6 on the Billboard pop charts, while Williams' version reached #11 on Billboard's R&B chart.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 02/16/15:

“In moments of fear or doubt or troubling times, hold to the ground you have already won, even if that ground is limited. . . When these moments come and issues surface, the resolution of which is not immediately forthcoming, hold fast to what you already know and stand strong until additional knowledge comes.”

- Jeffrey R. Holland
(b. 03 Dec 1940)

    Thanks so much, Susan!

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/17/17:

Julie's wedding day was fast approaching. Her parents divorced, but that never stopped her from wanting to get married. Her mother had found the perfect dress to wear. A week later, Julie was horrified to learn that her father's new young wife had bought the exact same dress as her mother.

Julie asked her stepmother to exchange it, but she refused. "Absolutely not. I look like a million bucks in this dress and I'm wearing it," she replied.

Julie told her mother who graciously said, "Never mind sweetheart. I'll get another dress. After all, it's your special day."

A few days later, they went shopping and did find another gorgeous dress. When they stopped for lunch, Julie asked her mother, "Aren't you going to return the other dress? You really don't have another occasion where you could wear it."

Her mother just smiled and replied, "Of course I do, dear. I'm wearing it to the rehearsal dinner, the night before the wedding."

Ivory Tower

Written by Jack Fulton and Lois Steele

Recorded by Cathy Carr, 1956
(28 June 1925 – 22 Nov 1988)

Recorded by Gale Storm, 1956
(05 Apr 1922 - 27 June 2009)


Come down come down from your ivory tower
Let love come in to your heart
Don't lock yourself in your ivory tower
Don't keep us so far apart
I love you I love you
Are you too far above me to hear
Come down come down from your ivory tower
You'll find true love has its charms
It's so cold so cold in your ivory tower
But warm so warm in my arms
I love you I love you
