02/28/15 - NNHS Newsletter - Still Loving You

“Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me,
and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you.
Love me and I may be forced to love you.

- William Arthur Ward
(1921-1994)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Have I mentioned lately how I love Scorpions? I mean, if you can't have Frank Sinatra singing love songs to you, you could do a whole lot worse than Scorpions!

BONUS - Still Loving You - Scorpions - Official Live Video


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Still_Loving_You:  

"Still Loving You" is a power ballad by Scorpions from their 1984 album Love at First Sting and the soundtrack of the 1984 Paramount motion picture Footloose. It was the second single of the album, reaching #64 on Billboard Hot 100. In France, the single sold 1.7 million copies. The music video was released in July 1984,[1] and was filmed in Dallas, Texas at Reunion Arena.

In an interview with Songfacts, Rudolf Schenker explained "It's a story about a love affair, where they recognized it may be over, but let's try again."[2]

The song is also considered a thinly veiled metaphor for a still divided Eastern & Western Germany. "Your pride has built a wall so strong that I can't get through, is there really no chance to start once again?" "only love can break down the walls someday" and "Yes I've hurt your pride and I know, what you've been through, you should give me a chance, this can't be the end, I'm still loving you" were clear references to the Berlin Wall and the despair many Germans felt about their divided homeland.

A remixed version of the studio album version was included on the album Still Loving You in 1992. The remixed version was also released as a single in Germany and some other European countries. The band has also re-recorded the song twice, with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra in 2000 for the album Moment of Glory and an acoustic re-working for the album Acoustica in 2001.

Matthias Jabs' guitar soloing is prominent throughout, but the main solo played in the outro is by Rudolf Schenker.

THIS DAY IN WWII:

February 28, 1933 - Gleichschaltung: The Reichstag Fire Decree was passed in Germany a day after the Reichstag fire.

February 28, 1942 -The heavy cruiser USS Houston was sunk in the Battle of Sunda Strait with 693 crew members killed, along with HMAS Perth which lost 375 men.


TODAY IN 1965:

Sunday, February 28, 1965 - Film editor Park Gok-ji was born in South Korean.

Sunday, February 28, 1965 - Author Colum McCann was born in Dublin, Ireland.

“In this world in which we live, there is a tendency for us to describe needed change, required help, and desired relief with the familiar phrase, "They ought to do something about this." We fail to define the word they. I love the message: "Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me." Tears came to my eyes when I read of a young boy in one of our eastern cities who noticed a vagrant asleep on a sidewalk and who then went to his own bedroom, retrieved his pillow, and placed it beneath the head of that one whom he knew not. Perhaps there came from the past these welcome words: "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me" (Matthew 25:40).”

- Thomas S. Monson
(b. 21 Aug 1927)

          From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of LA - 02/27/15 - "Live Long and Prosper":

Well said, Mr. Nimoy... All things preserved in our memory. Surely the efforts you put into your successful acting career have and will continue to inspire millions. Condolences to your family and friends....

Leonard Nimoy’s final tweet will give you chills.

From http://rare.us/story/leonard-nimoys-final-tweet-will-give-you-chills/:

Leonard Nimoy, the actor best known for giving life to Mr. Spock, the half-alien first officer aboard the Starship Enterprise in “Star Trek” and movies set in its universe, died Friday in his Los Angeles home at 83.

Nimoy had been hospitalized for several days. The cause of death, his wife Susan told The New York Times, was end-stage COPD. Nimoy announced last year he had the disease and attributed it to years of smoking, despite quitting three decades prior.

Though best known as Spock, Nimoy’s long career also included the television series “Mission: Impossible” and, more recently, “Fringe.” He reprised his role as Spock in J.J. Abrams’ two “Star Trek” films as an older Spock. He reconciled his relationship with the role in two books, titled “I Am Not Spock” in 1975 and “I Am Spock” in 1995.
Besides photography, poetry and music, Nimoy was also active on Twitter. His final tweet, posted not long before he was hospitalized, rings eerie.


"A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP"

- Leonard Nimoy (26 Mar 1931 - 27 Feb 2015), 23 Feb 2015

   AMEN! Thanks so much, Brent!

http://lovintheoven.com/2010/03/even-better-snickerdoodle.html - Kim's Even Better Snickerdoodle! - "... This cookie is moister than my previous recipe and just a tad bit sweeter (which I prefer).

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/27/15:

Juan came up to the Mexican border on his bicycle. He had two large bags over his shoulders. The guard stopped him and asked, "What's in the bags?"

"Sand," answered Juan.

The guard said, "We'll just see about that. Get off the bike." The guard detained Juan overnight and had the sand analyzed, only to discover that there is nothing but pure sand in the bags. He released Juan and let him cross the border.

A week later, the same thing happened. The guard asked, "What's in the bags?"

"Sand," said Juan.

The guard made his thorough examination and discovered that the bags contained nothing but sand. He gave the sand back to Juan, and Juan crossed the border on his bicycle.

This sequence of events was repeated every week for three years.

Finally, Juan didn't show up one day and the guard met him in a Cantina in Mexico.

"Hey, Buddy," said the guard, "I know you are smuggling something. It's driving me crazy. It's all I think about...Just between you and me, what are you smuggling?"

Juan sipped his beer and said, "Bicycles."

Still Loving You

- Scorpions, 1984


Time, it needs time
To win back your love again.
I will be there, I will be there.

Love, only love
Can bring back your love someday.
I will be there, I will be there.

Fight, babe, I'll fight
To win back your love again.
I will be there, I will be there.

Love, only love
Can break down the walls someday.
I will be there, I will be there.

If we'd go again
All the way from the start,
I would try to change
The things that killed our love.

Your pride has build a wall, so strong
That I can't get through.
Is there really no chance
To start once again?
I'm loving you.

Try, baby try
To trust in my love again.
I will be there, I will be there.

Love, your love
Just shouldn't be thrown away.
I will be there, I will be there.

If we'd go again
All the way from the start,
I would try to change
The things that killed our love.

Your pride has built a wall, so strong
That I can't get through.
Is there really no chance
To start once again?

If we'd go again
All the way from the start,
I would try to change
The things that killed our love.

Yes I've hurt your pride, and I know
What you've been through.
You should give me a chance
This can't be the end.

I'm still loving you.
I'm still loving you,
I need your love.
I'm still loving you.
Still loving you, baby...
