“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy;
for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves;
we must die to one life before we can enter another.”


 -
Anatole France
(16 Apr 1844 - 12 Oct 1924)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Today is actually the second day of Spring - and that means we'll all soon be having many changes!

BONUS #3 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OM7z4hn9oW0&NR=1 - Changes - Kelly Osbourne and her daddy, Ozzy, 2003


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Changes_%28Black_Sabbath_song%29:

"Changes" is a song by Black Sabbath. It first appeared on Black Sabbath, Vol. 4 which was released in 1972. It is a ballad about relationship loss.

The song has been covered by numerous artists, including The Cardigans and Overkill. In 1993, Ozzy Osbourne (Black Sabbath's lead vocalist) re-recorded the song himself as a single (taken from the Live and Loud album). The single peaked at number 9 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks[1] but failed to chart in the UK. The opening track from UNKLE's second album "Never, Never, Land" features a prominent sample from the chorus and loops of the mellotron.

Three decades later, Ozzy recorded yet another version of the song, this time with his daughter, Kelly Osbourne as a duet. The revised lyrics for this version, released in 2003, reflect the moments of their life together. The single reached #1 in the UK. It also reached the top spot on the London Fashion Chart for three weeks, #1 on the Kerrang! UK Download Chart. It also became Birmingham's Big One and was nominated for a Grammy.

      From Harry Covert ('57) of MD - 03/16/15 - "WHAT’S IN A NAME? HERE’S THE ‘SKINNY’"

Rick Snider’s Real Redskins History
By Harry M. Covert


It is time to put to rest – to bed — all of the hullabaloo, gibberish and nonsense about the Redskins name in the National Football League and any place else for that matter.

All the people who run around acting like they are offended is pure and unadulterated hogwash, first class. There are lots of things in which to be offended but Washington’s name business is not one of them. Actually the Redskins practice in Ashburn Virginia; they play in Landover (formerly RalJon) Maryland and market themselves as Washington, northeast, southeast, west or what-have- you.

Let’s get down to business here. Those who have nothing else to do but squawk and beat the drums for silliness can be assured that all of their lip-biting or other visions of upset are for nought.

The Redskins played their very very first game in Frederick, Md., upon their transfer from Yankeeland – Boston. –Supposedly the name was a marketing ploy by George Preston Marshall, the Washington, D.C. laundering magnate who, quite frankly, brought the team from obscurity and near financial ruin to the “nation’s capital.”

Confession may be worth something at this spot. Before the days of non-stop sports events on television screens and when Sunday family meals were heavily practiced, football lovers could watch one day from Washington south. In my days I enjoyed the Sunday afternoons watching the Redskins and Eddie LeBaron, then known as the “Field General”, the late great Charlie “Choo Choo” Justice, a dazzling runner, and among them one of my all-time favorites Bill Dudley, the college and professional player known as Bullet Bill. There were others.

Rick Snider, a Maryland man, is The Expert on Redskins history. He is a distinguished columnist and author. His latest book is    “100 Things Redskins Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die.” This 282-page history is a grand read front to back.

A quick survey among Frederick County locals didn’t provide any names of those who attended that first game on September 6, 1937 when the Washington Redskins defeated the American Legion All-Stars 50-0 at McCurdy Field. Marshall the promoter said 2,500 attended that game. Others, a sportswriter of the day, suggested maybe otherwise. Nowadays the attendance is around the 80-90,000 mark and other amenities.

Snider points out the Frederick game was necessary since the old Griffith Stadium in D.C. was occupied by the Senators, who were known as “first in war, first in peace and last in the American League.”

McCurdy Field was torn down and rebuilt in 1974. It was home to the Frederick Keys baseball team as well as the Frederick Hustlers and Warriors.

Was A Sioux the First Redskin?

ONE OF MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE Redskin players is Norman Snead. He was a high school all-state player at Warwick High School in Newport News, my hometown. He starred at Wake Forest and was selected by the Redskins. He played there from 1961-63 when he was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles for Sonny Jorgensen. The latter played a decade. He announces today.

Author
  Rick Snider has all kinds of great facts. The Redskins almost became the Dallas Redskins.

Redskins-dom is no stranger to Frederick even today. A Sunday grocery store visit saw a couple shopping for milk, bread and, you know the rest. Husband was arrayed in Redskins’ hat, shirt, pants and running shoes. Wifey was attired in Redskins shirt and pants and wristwatch. Nice team. This is not unusual even when the Baltimore Ravens have performed much better in recent years in the won-loss departments and even a Super Bowl.

Oldtimers, though, maintain a close affinity to the Redskins.

Was the first true Redskins’ Indian player a Sioux?

Snider’s tidbits are terrific. He tells exactly how Jim Zorn got his first coaching job in the NFL. How the fabled Joe Gibbs was almost fired by Jack Kent Cooke after three straight losses. How the Redskins 70-0 loss was almost 90-0 in the 1940 world championship game.

Remember John Riggins’ famous dinner with Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor; how the Redskins’ Cheerleaders were formed; and the Redskins’ Marching Band; or who really was the very first Redskins’ black player?

But, back to the nickname, the honest and true naming of the team. The team wasn’t named in honor of Native American Indians. Snider ends the myth at the start in Chapter One, Page One.

So when all of the social commentators and generally those “who don’t know jack”, Rick Snider has the facts, just as he does when covering the football wars of today.

Okay, sports fans would like to know the most successful ‘Skins coach in the history of the franchise? Nope, not Gibbs, not Vince Lombardi. Buy the book.

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 03/20/15:

A man asked his wife what she'd like for her birthday.

"I'd like to be eight again..." she replied.

On the morning of her birthday, he arose early, made her a nice big bowl of Coco Pops, and then took her off to the local theme park.

What a day! He put her on every ride in the park: the Death Slide, the Wall of Fear, the Screaming Monster Roller Coaster, everything there was.

Five hours later she staggered out of the theme park. Her head was reeling and her stomach felt upside down.

Right away, they journeyed to a McDonald's where her loving husband ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a refreshing chocolate shake.

Then it was off to the movies with popcorn, all the Coke she could drink, and her favorite M&M's. What a fabulous adventure!

Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed exhausted.

He leaned over his precious wife with a big smile and lovingly asked, "Well, Dear, what was it like being eight again?"

Her eyes slowly opened and her expression suddenly changed. "I meant my dress size!!!!!!!"

The moral of the story: Even when a man is listening, he's gonna get it wrong.

I feel unhappy
I feel so sad
I lost the best friend
That I ever had

She was my woman
I loved her so
But it's too late now
I've let her go

I'm going through changes
I'm going through changes

We shared the eve's
We shared each day
In love together
We found a way

But soon the world
Had its evil way
My heart was blinded
Love went astray

I'm going through changes
I'm going through changes

It took so long
To realize
That I can still hear
Her last goodbyes

Now all my days
Are filled with tears
Wish I could go back
And change these years

I'm going through changes
I'm going through changes
