pulsation of a yearning, loving heart in tune with the Infinite. It is a
message of the soul sent directly to a loving Father. The language is
not mere words.”
David O. McKay
Thank you, Daniel!
From Jimmy Walker ('62) of VA - 02/14/15 - "Information for the Letter":
From Malcolm Davis ('65) of VA - 02/21/15 - "That Lone Star Tick bite that you mentioned in the newsletter.":
|This very malady is
one that I have had for probably 20 years now. I saw a news
article 2 years ago on TV and finally figured out how I
became allergic to beef. It also made me allergic to pork.
I have spent a lot of time in the outdoors with wilderness programming activities in my employment with Juvenile Court Services. Tick bites were not uncommon. The distinguishing thing about this food allergy is that the symptoms do not occur suddenly after consuming the beef. It is 4 or 5 hours later when hives and itching come upon you. Nausea also sets in etc. and passing out is often part of the symptoms.
I am interested to know why your husband suggested that this appear in the newsletter. I think others might be suffering from this disease and now they may find this article enlightening.
YOWZERONI-RINI! Thank you, Malcolm! I'm so sorry to hear this!
My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC simply passed this along to me in a collection of weird facts he received in an email from his cousin. Neither of us had any idea it would be so relevant! Thanks for letting us know!
From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 02/21/15 - "Snow in New England!":
John (Burton -
Hampton HS - '58) in backyard drift...our mailbox barely
above snowbank, our happy birds, sunshine at last!
OOH! Thank you so much for sharing these gorgeous images with us, Jean! They're breathtaking!
Still, I'm rather glad y'all had the snow and we here in Fayetteville did not!
|“Birds are like
people. The bird is here because it's a good place. There's food, and
there's safety. When a bird doesn't like a situation, it protects itself
and stays away. No matter where you are in the world, if you see a bird
in a place, it's a good place, a safe place, a place that sustains

From My Granddaughter, Rachel Harty (Collinsville HS, IL - '14) of UT - 02/21/15:
GOODNESS, OH MY GOODNESS! I'M GOING TO THE BRITISH ISLES
THIS SUMMER WITH ONE OF BYU'S
STUDY ABROAD PROGRAMS!!!!

BONUS GEORGE WASHINGTON FILET CROCHET PATTERNS:
supplies/craft_supplies/patterns/home_decor - George Washington Filet Crochet Chair Back Set - This vintage pattern costs $5.00, and to actually make it you'll need size 50 thread and a No. 12 steel hook, which means you'll need a pretty good pair of eyes, too, as that's extraordinarily fine work!
BONUS MARTHA WASHINGTON'S GREAT CAKE RECIPE:
|http://uncpressblog.com/2011/06/02/happy-birthday-martha-washington/ - Martha Washington’s Great Cake - "...Martha Washington’s Great Cake is one of the few surviving recipes directly associated with her, so well liked that she had Martha Parke Custis, one of her granddaughters, copy it for members of the family. That original recipe is now part of the Mount Vernon collections. It is a cake that more than likely would have been served during the Christmas season as part of a grand Christmas dinner or Twelfth-Night party. It might also have been served at tea...."|
From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/21/15:
|A pilot was flying a small single
engine plane with a lot of really important executives on board into
Seattle airport. There was fog so thick that visibility was 10m, and his
instruments were out. He circled looking for a landmark and after an
hour, he was low on fuel and his passengers were very nervous.
At last, through a small opening in the fog he saw a tall building with one guy working alone on the fifth floor.
Circling, the pilot banked and shouted through his open window, "Hi, where am I?"
The solitary office worker replied, "You're in an airplane."
The pilot made a swift 275 degree turn and executed a perfect blind landing on the runway five miles away. Just as the plane stopped, the engines coughed and died from lack of fuel. The stunned passengers asked the pilot how he did it.
"Simple," replied the pilot, "I asked the guy in that building a simple question. The answer he gave me was 100 percent correct but absolutely useless; therefore, that must be Microsoft's support office, and from there, the airport is just five miles away on a bearing of 87 degrees!"

Father and I
went down to camp
Along with Captain Gooding
And there we saw the men and boys
As thick as hasty pudding.
Yankee doodle, keep it up
Yankee doodle dandy
Mind the music and the step
And with the girls be handy.
There was Captain Washington
Upon a slapping stallion
A-giving orders to his men
I guess there was a million.
And then the feathers on his hat
They looked so' tarnal fin-a
I wanted pockily to get
To give to my Jemima.
And then we saw a swamping gun
Large as a log of maple
Upon a deuced little cart
A load for father's cattle.
And every time they shoot it off
It takes a horn of powder
It makes a noise like father's gun
Only a nation louder.
I went as nigh to one myself
As' Siah's underpinning
And father went as nigh agin
I thought the deuce was in him.
We saw a little barrel, too
The heads were made of leather
They knocked upon it with little clubs
And called the folks together.
And there they'd fife away like fun
And play on cornstalk fiddles
And some had ribbons red as blood
All bound around their middles.
The troopers, too, would gallop up
And fire right in our faces
It scared me almost to death
To see them run such races.
Uncle Sam came there to change
Some pancakes and some onions
For' lasses cake to carry home
To give his wife and young ones.
But I can't tell half I see
They kept up such a smother
So I took my hat off, made a bow
And scampered home to mother.
Cousin Simon grew so bold
I thought he would have cocked it
It scared me so I streaked it off
And hung by father's pocket.
And there I saw a pumpkin shell
As big as mother's basin
And every time they touched it off
They scampered like the nation.
And there was Captain Washington,
With gentlefolks about him,
They say he's gown so 'tarnal proud
He will not ride without them.
There came Gen'ral Washington
Upon a snow-white charger
He looked as big as all outdoors
And thought that he was larger.
