March Forth on the Fourth

“March on. Do not tarry. To go forward is to move toward perfection.
March on, and fear not the thorns, or the sharp stones on life's path.

- Kahlil Gibran
(06 Jan 1883 - 10 Apr 1931)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   Today is the only day of the year which when spoken in English forms a sentence. 
And that, of course, is cause enough for celebration today - just as it has been for the last two years:

  From Jamey Douglas Bacon ('66) of VA - 03/03/11 - "1948":  

HEY THERE,

VIRGINIA GALL HAS BEEN BRINGING ME MEALS ON WHEELS AND SHE INFORMS ME THAT SHE GRADUATED FROM NNHS IN  1948. ANY CHANCE OF HAVING HER PICTURE. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE IT. SHE IS A SWEETIE.

THANKS, JAMEY

   OOOH, sorry, Jamey! I personally have seven randomly spaced yearbooks before June 1945, and the Anchors running from 1954 to 1967, but nothing in between. Perhaps one of our other readers equipped with a scanner could help you with that.  Sorry I couldn't have been of more assistance!


       From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 03/02/11 - "Web Hosting Costs":  

Your newsletter entry was  … well … inexplicit.

If you were asking for donations to sustain the site, you never quite came out and said that.

You cannot be that subtle and expect your readers to respond.

Also, the notification from the web host was not clear. It did not say what the discount would be for an extended plan. The figure of $14.95 was asterisked, but it was not explained what that meant. Is that the monthly cost at the undiscounted rate? The annual cost.

I would recommend that you put all the facts on the table and see who responds. Specify precisely what you need.

   Yes, well, I've been operating at well below full capacity all week, Captain - hence the enormous backlog of Newsletters and individual items!

   It's hard to say, but more than likely, I meant that as an annual statement of our situation. The server will renew on March 03 of each year, and there are a variety of options:

Hosting Plan: Web Pro Plus (Due date: 2011-03-02)

* 3 Months - $25.47
* 6 Months - $47.94
* 12 Months - $95.88
* 24 Months - $167.76
* 36 Months - $233.64
* 48 Months - $287.52
* 60 Months - $329.40

   We just went with the one-year plan, and the site has been renewed for another year, but I did amend that vague posting.

   Actually, I've tried to say as little as possible lately - either out loud or online. Everything I DO say is coming out all wrong, so I'm pretty much trying to follow the wisdom of the Wonderful Tar Baby, and "lay low" - because chances seem excellent that I've landed in an alternate universe.....

   Thanks, David!


   From Ivan Anker ('67) of VA - 03/02/11 - "UNESCO decision about Rachel's Tomb and undermine Israel's Jewish future.":

I am not sure if you want to get involved with this proposal but I find it to be insane. Keep up your great work for the Typhoon Nation.

KEVER RACHEL PETITION: Protest UNESCO Effort to Erase Jewish Connection To Site

January 27 2011

The Executive Board of UNESCO has declared 2 of Judaism’s holiest sites (Tomb of the Patriarchs and Tome of Rachel) to be mosques and demand that Israel remove the sites from its National Heritage list.

In an effort to erase Jewish history and supersede Jewish religious sites with Islamic institutions, Muslims have intentionally built mosques upon numerous synagogues and Jewish holy sites.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office decried the ludicrous nature of the UNESCO decision: “The attempt to detach the Nation of Israel from its heritage is absurd. If the nearly 4,000-year-old burial sites of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs of the Jewish Nation - Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah -are not part of its culture and tradition, then what is a national cultural site?”

In cooperating with efforts to erase Jewish historical ties to Israel, UNESCO is aiding and abetting those who hope to and obfuscate Israel ‘s Jewish past and undermine Israel‘s Jewish future.

Sign the petition today!

   WHAT?!? This is the most ludicrous, unconscionable nonsense I've read in some time! How can such things be?!?

   Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Ivan!


       From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 03/03/11 - "Chutzpah":  

My favorite example of Chutzpah:

“A child who brutally murders his parents and, then, throws himself on the mercy of the court, because he is an orphan.”

     Thanks again, Brown Eyes!


    From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 03/03/11 - "Blonde moment in Michigan...":

As a trucker stops for a red light, a blonde catches up. She jumps out of her car, runs up to his truck, and knocks on the door. 

The trucker lowers the window, and she says "Hi, my name is Heather and you are losing some of your load."  

The trucker ignores her and proceeds down the street. 

When the truck stops for another red light, the girl catches up again. She jumps out of her car, runs up and knocks on the door. 


Again, the trucker lowers the window. As if they've never spoken, the blonde says brightly, "Hi my name is Heather, and you are losing some of your load!" 

Shaking his head, the trucker ignores her again and continues down the street. 

At the third red light, the same thing happens again.  

All out of breath, the blonde gets out of her car, runs up, knocks on the truck door. The trucker rolls down the window. Again she says "Hi, my name is Heather, and you are losing some of your load!" 

When the light turns green the trucker revs up and races to the next light. 

When he stops this time, he hurriedly gets out of the truck, and runs back to the blonde.  

He knocks on her window, and after she lowers it, he says... 

"Hi, my name is Mark, it's winter in MICHIGAN  and I'm driving the SALT TRUCK!"

      Thanks, Joan!


    From Jerry ('65) and    Judy Phillips ('66) Allen of VA - 03/03/11 - "Live, laugh, love":

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 03/02/11 and 03/03/11:

Did you water the plants, Sofia, asked the mistress of the house?

“Of course, ma’am,” Sofia said. “Don’t you hear the water dripping on the carpet?”

*******

A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband.

Suddenly, her husband burst into the kitchen. “Careful,” he said, “CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh my gosh! You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my gosh! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They're going to STICK!

“Careful. CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up!

“Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind? Don't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!”

The wife stared at him. “What in the world is wrong with you? You think I don't know how to fry a couple of eggs?”

The husband calmly replied, “I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I'm driving.”
