“The walls we build around us to keep sadness out
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Few singers have ever equaled the soothing velvet tones of Jim Reeves insofar as "comfort sounds". I don't know about you, but I'm in the mood for some comfort right about now.

From John Patterson ('59) of TN - 04/24/15 - "I figured out why I'm getting fat":
|I don't know why I didn't
figure this out sooner!
Do you use shampoo to wash your hair in the shower?
The shampoo runs down your whole body, and yet printed very clearly on the shampoo label is this warning: "FOR EXTRA BODY AND VOLUME"
No wonder I've been gaining weight for years!
Well, I got rid of the shampoo and I'm going to start using Dawn dishwashing liquid instead.
Its label says: "DISSOLVES FAT THAT IS OTHERWISE DIFFICULT TO REMOVE."
GREAT PLAN! Thanks, John!
|Thank you, Bobby! I love this!|
do not know when he is coming. He is coming tomorrow.”

BONUS OFF THE WALL RECIPES:
|http://www.kingarthurflour.com/blog/2007/12/31/off-the-wall-recipes/ - Off the Wall Recipes - "Do you know what “off the wall recipes” are? Now, don’t get all excited thinking you’re going to read about chocolate papaya muffin tops or fennel sardine apricot bread. No, I’m talking about the stack of recipes I’ve clipped together and hung on the pegboard next to my work station in the King Arthur test kitchen. These are recipes I make over and over again–for potlucks, for bake sales, or for going-away lunches here at work. Or just because, after sitting for three hours at the computer, I need to bake something..."|
A husband, the owner of a new car, was somewhat reluctant to allow his wife to drive his prize possession...even to the Supermarket which was a few blocks from the house.
After she insisted, he finally relented, cautioning her as she departed, "Remember, if you have an accident, the newspaper will print your age!"
