03/21/16 - NNHS Newsletter - Changes

“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!

   Generally speaking I am not a big fan of changes, but one change I would gladly welcome would be a greater improvement in my health. Each time I think I've almost beaten this bronchitis "it has ways" of letting me know the error of my thinking.

BONUS - - Changes - Ozzy Osbourne / Black Sabbath, 1972


"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.

BISSELL Spring Cleaning Tips: A Better Way to Clean

Okay kings and queens of clean, it’s that time of year again. It’s time to get out the serious cleaning supplies, stretch your scrubbing muscles and tackle those hard-to-reach places you ignore most of the year. In other words, it’s time to start spring cleaning.

Use our spring cleaning guide below to navigate through the different parts of your home and achieve the highest level of clean. Need a guide for each room of your house? Click to view the Spring Cleaning Checklist or download and print the PDF.

Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Floors:

Whether it’s carpet, hardwood, linoleum or vinyl, all of your floors need to be thoroughly cleaned to get rid of deep down dirt and germs. You may vacuum your carpets and sweep your floors weekly, but chances are you don’t deep clean them very often. Tackle this project by doing the following:



  • Start by going over all carpets with your regular vacuum.
  • Remove as much furniture from the rooms as possible. Any furniture that can’t be moved needs to have plastic placed beneath it.
  • Use a carpet deep cleaner to extract deep down dirt and leave carpets fresh and clean.
  • PLEASE NOTE: If any carpets do not have backing, they require professional cleaning.

Floors (sealed hard wood, vinyl, linoleum, etc):

  • Sweep or vacuum the floors thoroughly.
  • Remove as much furniture as possible.
  • Use a steam mop to clean and sanitize the floor. (Steam mops use electricity to heat water and then release steam into cleaning pads that pick up dirt and sanitize the floor when used as directed)

Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Walls and Windows:

Your walls and windows take a beating throughout the year, so it’s a good idea to give them a thorough cleaning each spring. You may not even notice many of the stains they’ve accumulated, but this regimen will get them sparkling in no time:



  • Dust from the top down, making sure to get the corners and other hard to reach places.
  • Use a solvent-free degreaser to get rid of grease stains, food splatters and fingerprints (test the product in a small area to make sure it won’t damage your walls).
  • Pay special attention to light switches.
  • Take this opportunity to also dust down any light fixtures and ceiling fans, as well as bookshelves, pictures, and other furniture pieces located against your walls. A damp cloth works well to remove dust without spreading it around the room.


  • Wait until there is not direct sunlight to begin cleaning.
  • Remove the screens and dust down both sides with a soft-bristle brush.
  • Create a cleaning solution with one part white vinegar and one part hot water.
  • Clean the window frames by wiping them down with a cloth that’s dampened with an all-purpose cleaner and water. Then wipe the solution away with a clean water cloth and dry the frame thoroughly.
  • Clean window treatments in your washing machine if possible, or dry clean if necessary.
  • Wipe down blinds with a damp cloth and fabric shades with a dry cloth.

Spring Cleaning Tips for Your Furniture:

Your furniture is in constant use all year long. Get rid of the dirt that has built up by using this effective cleaning regimen:


Couches and Chairs

  • Gently beat cushions outside to remove dust and surface dirt.
  • Check for stains and treat appropriately according to the care labels.
  • Use a vacuum with a powerful hose to clean under seat cushions and in hard-to-reach crevices.


  • Turn over your mattress to evenly distribute wear
  • Machine-wash your pillows to get rid of and bacteria or odors. Make sure you give them several hours to dry before putting them back on your bed.
  • Replace cool-weather bedding with lighter warm-weather items.

Spring Cleaning Tips for Cabinets, Countertops & Sinks

Cabinets, countertops and sinks are in constant use in any home or apartment. Even if you wipe them down on a regular basis, they still need an extensive cleaning a few times a year to get rid of built-up dirt and stains. Follow our steps to get these areas sparkling:



  • Use warm water and soap on a sponge to clean off fingerprints, food stains and other unsightly markings
  • If grease is present, use a solvent-free degreaser to target those spots
  • Don’t forget the areas in and around handles, since those often get the most use

Countertops and Sinks

  • Use warm water and soap on a sponge to wipe away dirt and stains.
  • Use a glass cleaning formula to shine any metal fixtures
  • Target any mildew build-up with a powerful cleaner
  • Take this opportunity to de-clutter your countertops. Put away and organize as much as possible and leave only the bare necessities on the counter itself

Miscellaneous Spring Cleaning Tips:

  • Remove light fixtures and wash them carefully with soap and water.
  • Replace batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.
  • Clean out your freezer and refrigerator, throwing away expired food and wiping down all surfaces with soap and water.
  • Sweep and mop underneath your refrigerator and dust the coils (AFTER unplugging it).
  • Vacuum and machine wash all doormats and area rugs.
  • Replace your shower curtain liner.
  • Update your first aid kit and throw away expired medicine.
  • Clean shower tiles with an mildew fighting agent and purchase an after-shower spray to be used daily.
  • Replace toilet scrub brushes and clean all toilets thoroughly.
  • Clean out your closet. Give unused items to charity and store cold-weather clothing in the attic or basement.
  • Put storage boxes in your basement on concrete blocks to prevent damage in case of flooding.

BONUS CROCHET CHANGES INSTRUCTION: - How to Change Knit to Crochet - Ann Jones - "Crocheters who don't knit might wish to translate knitting patterns to crochet. However, because knit and crochet stitches are not the same size, no simple formula exist for making the conversion."

They are nutritious in many different forms — fresh, frozen, canned (packed in 100% fruit juice), juiced, and even dried. Try these low-cost, easy-to-make recipes today. We think you'll find some new family favorites."

I told a girl on the flight that she was pretty. She replied, "Tell me something I don't know."

So I asked if she remembered the quadratic formula.

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
