05/07/17 - NNHS Newsletter - Not a Second Time

“I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments
and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended
whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken --
and I'd rather remember it as it was at its best
than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived.


- Margaret Mitchell
(08 Nov 1900 - 16 Aug 1949)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Have we had any Beatles' songs lately?

BONUS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGKZCMbhmCE - Not A Second Time - The Beatles, 1963


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Not_a_Second_Time:

"Not a Second Time" is a song by John Lennon (credited to Lennon/McCartney) performed by The Beatles on their second United Kingdom album, With the Beatles. Lennon said he was "trying to write a Smokey Robinson or something at the time."[1]

This song inspired a musical analysis from William Mann of The Times, citing the "Aeolian cadence" (Aeolian harmony) of Lennon's vocals as the song draws to a close, and noting that the same chord progression appears at the end of Mahler's "Song of the Earth".[2] Lennon, years later, remarked: "To this day, I have no idea what [Aeolian cadences] are. They sound like exotic birds."[3] The actual meaning of the term "Aeolian cadence" is when a major key song resolves on the VI chord, which is the tonic chord of the relative minor key. The term derives from the fact that the Aeolian mode is rooted on the sixth step of the major scale.

The song was recorded in nine takes on 11 September 1963 at EMI Studios.[4]

    From the Incomparable Charis Bean Duke (Governor Thomas Johnson HS, MD - '85) of PA - 05/06/15:

“To any of you who are troubled about the future...God expects you to have enough faith and determination and enough trust in Him to keep moving, keep living, keep rejoicing. In fact, He expects you not simply to face the future (that sounds pretty grim and stoic); He expects you to embrace and shape the future - to love it and rejoice in it and delight in your opportunities.”

- Jeffrey R. Holland
(b. 03 Dec 1940)

    Thanks so much, Charis!


From My Friend, Daniel, of UT - 05/06/15:

  From Me ('65) of NC - 05/02/17 - "Temperature Gauge Afghan, Fayetteville, NC, 01/01/17 to 04/22/17:

   Many of you have no doubt been wondering, "What has become of Carol's Temperature Gauge Afghan?"
 
    Well, the problem is, as the hot days began increasing, I ran out of Pumpkin yarn - and so did Walmart!

   When I mentioned this to my     #6 Son, Dale Harty, (Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL - '02) Diana Lyons Harty (Portsmouth HS, NH / Eastlake HS, CA - '05) of CA, they surprised me with a package containing not only Pumpkin yarn, but HUGE skeins of Cherry Red and white yarns as well, PLUS a bag of my favorite yummy Peppermint Patties to help me concentrate!

   Thanks so much, Sweet Chickadees!    

 
 

    Here then is your promised update on my temperature gauge afghan. Using a size H hook, making the popcorn center polka-dots with a size B hook, and breaking the colors down into 10-degree increments:

91-100+ Cherry Red
81-90 Pumpkin
71-80 Cornmeal
61-70 Pale Yellow

51-60 Paddy Green
41-50 Honeydew
31-40 Royal Blue
21-30 Baby Blue
0-20 Lilac

 

     Behold the first sixteen weeks of 2017 in Fayetteville!

   The warmer temperatures have definitely arrived here! I foresee some Cherry Red blocks in our very near future!
 
 


“Tonight I'm going to listen with my ears.

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 05/05/17:

Bob was in his usual place, sitting at the table, reading the news. He came across an article about a beautiful actress who was about to marry a man who was known primarily for his bad behavior and lack of good manners.

His wife replied, "Why, thank you, dear!"

Not a Second Time

Written by John Lennon (09 Oct 1940 – 08 Dec 1980); (Credited to McCartney/Lennon)

Recorded by The Beatles, 1963


You know you made me cry,
I see no use in wond'ring why,
I cried for you.

And now, you've changed your mind,
I see no reason to change mine,
I cried, it's through, oh.

Oh, you're giving me the same old line,
I'm wond'ring why,
You hurt me then, you're back again,
No, no, not a second time.
