“May the Fourth Be With You.”

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Today is Star Wars Day. Are you celebrating appropriately?  

BONUS - John Williams Conducts The Main Theme From Star Wars, 1984


The music of Star Wars was written by composer John Williams and performed by the London Symphony Orchestra for all six feature films, from 1977 to 2005. This encompasses both the original trilogy, the first three films, and the prequel trilogy, the last three films. As of July 2013, Lucasfilm President, Kathleen Kennedy, announced at Star Wars Celebration Europe that Williams would be returning once more to score Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.[1] Williams' scores for the two existing trilogies count among the most widely known and popular contributions to modern film music. Additionally, music for Star Wars: The Clone Wars was written by Kevin Kiner, and further music has been composed for Star Wars video games and works in other media. The 2016 spinoff film Star Wars: Rogue One will be scored by Alexandre Desplat,[2] the first major Star Wars film not to use Williams.....

  From Me ('65) of NC - 05/03/20:

      My #4 Son, Joshua (Hillsboro HS, IL - '95 - of NC), brought me home a lovely skein of fuchsia Red Heart with Love Metallic yarn. In light of the pandemic, I thought it incumbent on me to crochet the ubiquitous Virus Shawl.

   Unfortunately, I soon grew weary of the pattern and decided on a bib instead. With all that luscious leftover yarn, what else could I do but design a fully lined coordinating purse? The vintage 1959 Sarah Coventry clip-on dangle earrings were a natural addition.


“That was perfect. It was just the opposite from what I said yesterday.

- Eugene Ormandy, conductor

From - 05/03/18:

During a conference, I was pleasantly surprised to be seated next to a very handsome man. We flirted casually through dinner, then grew restless as the dignitaries gave speeches. During one particularly long-winded lecture, my new friend drew a # sign on a cocktail napkin. Elated, I wrote down my phone number.

Looking startled for a moment, he drew another # sign, this time adding an X to the upper-left-hand corner.
