Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
We've only celebrated this her once before, but today marks the 60th Anniversary, so it would be extremely tacky to miss it this year:
I don't want to spoil the surprise of these videos by describing them. Trust me, they are not to be missed:

From Ann Mabe Leighton ('58) of NC - "new email address":
Thanks, Ann, I have you switched now! Congratulations on your escape from AOL!OOPS, did I just say that out loud?!?
From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 05/05/08 - "Comments made in the year 1955!":
Ya gotta love it! Thanks, Wayne Honey!
From Donna Price Devers ('66) of NC - 05/06/08:
I'm sorry you're still not doing well. I keep looking for "more ups than downs"!!
Yeah, so do I!
Certainly! It should have been posted on each issue - and will be, from now on!
Oh, NO - NOT the music, too! Oh, the humanity! I dunno the answer to this one much either, except it's something to do with whatever media thingamajigger is installed on YOUR computer. We change them around here so often I never know what to expect, but I do know that our little puny computer which formerly could hear midis no longer does, but it plays other sound files (such as You Tube) with no problem. That's all way over my head, and filed in my "Life's Mysteries" basket.
Thank you so much, Donna!
From the Head Flagtwirler of 1965, Janice McCain Rose of VA - 05/08/08 - "dreaded red x box in emails":
One of the main areas where people see the red X is in their e-mail. If you use Outlook Express and are having trouble seeing pictures in your e-mail, open it up and go to Tools, Options and choose the Security tab. Make sure the "Block images and other external content in HTML e-mail" box is unchecked. Now, if you are sending an e-mail and people have been complaining to you about the pictures not showing up, try this: open up OE and go to Tools, Options, Send tab. Under the Mail Sending Format section, make sure HTML is selected and then click on the HTML Settings button. From there, make sure the "Send pictures with messages" box is checked. That should solve all of your e-mail issues.
If you're having trouble seeing images in Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options and click on the Advanced tab. Look for the Multimedia section and make sure the box that says "Show Pictures" is checked. For Firefox, go to Tools, Options and click on the Web Features icon. Make sure the "Load Images" box is checked as well.
Another cause may be that your browser security settings are set too high, which prevents you from accessing the Web site that handles the images. In IE, go to Tools, Internet Options, Security tab and click on the Default Level button. Make sure your settings are set somewhere around the medium level.
Another cause could be your antivirus or firewall settings. Look for a setting that says "Disable Web Bugs" and make sure it is turned off. That should allow all the images to pass through so that you can see them.
There are also a couple other simple reasons why your images may be blocked. One is that you're looking at a Web site that is busy, temporarily shut down or offline. A Web host could also be working on certain things on the site, causing the images to be down. If everything else we've discussed above is set correctly and you're still not seeing the images, this might be your problem. All you can really do is just try the site again later. Also, when you're trying to view images on a Web site or in your e-mail, make sure you are actually connected to the Internet, because they will not show up if you're not online.
If you've been having trouble with the red X, hopefully one of these solutions will help you in fixing this awful predicament!
WOWZERONI! Thanks so much, Janice!
From Aretie Gallins Patterson ('59) of TN - 05/08/08 - "Clodfelters":
I went to Westhampton College with Ann Clodfelter and was good friends with her. Ann was a graduate of Hampton High School, Class of 1958, I think. If you were searching, NNHS graduates, that might have been why you could not find the Clodfelter children.
Hope this helps.
Aretie Gallins Patterson
Ohhhh, well, thank you, Aretie! It solves one mystery, but raises another, as both Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) and I remember the Clodfelter name quite vividly. I suppose it was because of Mr. Clodfelter himself, as we very definitely patronized Kecoughtan Pharmacy.
From Richard Dawes (NNHS / HHS - '62) of VA - 05/08/08 - "R-U-N-N-O-F-T":
Well, that's true, Sweetie - and with a name like Hogwallop, who could blame her (to say nothing of that "charmer' of a husband she had!)?!? I've noticed that people and things R-U-N-N-O-F-T around here all the time. Sometimes they reappear; sometimes they don't.

HaTikva (The Hope)
The National Anthem of Israel
Written by Naftali Herz Imber
Melody arranged by Samuel Cohen, an immigrant to Israel from Moldavia, from a musical theme
in Smetana's "Moldau", which is partly based on a Scandinavian folk song
|As long as
deep in the heart,
The soul of a Jew yearns,
And forward to the East
To Zion, an eye looks
Our hope will not be lost,
The hope of two thousand years,
To be a free nation in our land,
The land of Zion and Jerusalem.
