03/08/15 - NNHS Newsletter - In the Mood
“Any art communicates what you're in the mood to receive.”
"In the Mood" is a song popularized by the American bandleader Glenn Miller in 1939, and one of the best-known arrangements of the big band era. Miller's rendition topped the charts one year later and was featured in the 1941 movie Sun Valley Serenade... The song was composed by Joe Garland and Andy Razaf, and arranged by Glenn Miller. The main theme previously appeared under the title of "Tar Paper Stomp", credited to jazz trumpeter/bandleader Wingy Manone, who recorded it several times in 1929 and 1930. A story says that after "In the Mood" became a hit, Manone was paid by Miller and his record company not to contest the copyright.

From My Friend, Daniel, of UT - 03/07/15:
|“When our life here
is ended and we return home, we will find credited to us there every
good act we have performed, every kindness we have done, every effort we
have put forth to benefit our fellows. . . . Let us evidence our
appreciation of what the Lord has given us by serving Him, and we are
serving Him when we do good to His children.”
Thanks so much, Daniel!

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 03/07/15:
|A mean lookin' cowboy was sitting
by himself in a saloon. He was a pretty intimidating sight, so no one
bothered him as he downed a few whiskey and beers. After chugging his
last drink he slammed some coins on the tabletop and got up to leave.
Right after he left though he came
storming back in and said, "Listen up, you mangy mongrels," and
everyone, terrified, immediately fell silent.
He was getting on it when one of
the bar patrons ran up to him and sheepishly asked, "Sir, I don't mean
to bother you but I just have to know, what did you do in Texas?"
