03/21/20 - 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!

BONUS - Changes - Ozzy Osbourne / Black Sabbath, 1972


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.

BONUS CROCHET CHANGES INSTRUCTION:

How to Change Knit Patterns 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 exists for making the conversion."


BONUS CHANGING COLORS IN KNITTING INSTRUCTION:

Changing Colors and Fair Isle Knitting - Laura Bain - "Some knitters seem to be intimidated about changing colors in the middle of a row or round, but the development of this simple skill will allow you to really experiment with different designs for your work, everything from knitting a blanket with an integrated border to a really fantastic Fair Isle sweater."


BONUS RECIPES FOR CHANGE:

Recipes for Change - "Whether in New York or Rome or a small farm in Kenya, we all want to sit down with our families and friends at the end of the day and share some well-deserved sustenance.

Changes

Written by Ozzy Osbourne (b. 03 Dec 1948), Tony Iommi (b. 19 Feb 1948),
Geezer Butler
(b. 17 July 1948), and Bill Ward (b. 05 May 1948), 1972


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
