05/15/13 - NNHS Newsletter - As Time Goes By

Now is the only time there is. Make your now
wow, your minutes miracles, and your days pay.
Your life will have been magnificently lived
and invested, and when you die you will have
made a difference.

- Mark Victor Hansen

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   You'll forgive me if I revisit Frank today.....  

BONUS - - As Time Goes By - Frank Sinatra with clips from Casablanca (1942)


"As Time Goes By" is a song written by Herman Hupfeld in 1931. It became most famous in 1942 when it was sung by Sam (Dooley Wilson) in the movie Casablanca. The song was voted #2 on the AFI's 100 Years... 100 Songs special, commemorating the best songs in film. It was used as a fanfare for Warner Bros. Pictures since 1998.

Herman Hupfeld wrote "As Time Goes By" for the 1931 Broadway musical Everybody's Welcome. In the original show, it was sung by Frances Williams. It was recorded that year by several artists, including Rudy Vallee.

The song was re-introduced in 1942 in the film Casablanca, sung by Dooley Wilson accompanied by pianist Elliot Carpenter[1] and heard throughout the film as a leitmotif.[2] Wilson was unable to record a single of the song at the time due to a musicians' strike, leading the studio to re-issue Vallee's 1931 recording and giving Vallee a number one hit in 1942.[3]

The song's famous opening line, "You must remember this...", is actually the start of the song's chorus as it was originally written and performed. Wilson did not sing the preceding verse in Casablanca, however, and most subsequent recordings have followed the film's lead in omitting it, leading to its being virtually unknown to most listeners.

In addition to the American Film Institute including it as number two in their list of the 100 best songs in film,[4] National Public Radio included it in their NPR 100, the 1999 list of the most important American musical works of the 20th century as compiled by their music editors.[5]...



    From Peyton Clark ('68) of NC - 05/14/13 - "Watch out for phony email":
Hi Carol,

I got an email from a classmate of mine claiming to be traveling in the Philippines. It says he was robbed and needs money because the authorities are doing nothing to help. I should send him a return email and he will tell me how to send him money.

I know this is a scam, but it got through my spam filter because the scammer is using the real email address of my classmate. I thought it might be good to advise the NNHS community just in case others from 1968 or other classes are getting these too. The authorities advise that if you think it might be legitimate, you can always call the person to see if he's really out of the country. An email in this case would not be secure, because that's what the scammer wants.

Of course, this time the joke's on the scammer, because as the saying goes, I'm so broke I can't even pay attention.


   YOWZERS! Thanks for the heads-up, Peyton!

      From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 05/13/13 - "Stuart Gardens had a number of Marines.":

Hi, Carol:

Knowing your admiration for the United States Marine Corps, I just wonder if you realized there were three Marines residing in the same court with you and your late mother when you all lived in Stuart Gardens on Roanoke Avenue.

When I returned from Active Duty in the USMC and reconnected with the 97th Rifle Company, I influenced two of our neighbors to come back to the USMC, by joining the 97th Rifle Company USMCR.

My next door neighbor, Sergeant Tom Robinson was our Company Armorer, who repaired our small arms and kept them in good condition; two doors down, was Captain Larry Topping. His wife was    Gaye Hogge ('56).

How is that for a small world story?

TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

   NO KIDDING?!? Thanks, Adonis! Lemme see... We lived there from the Summer of 1960 until October of 1967 when we moved to Hampton. I don't remember Sgt. Robinson, and the Toppings (I can almost remember) had different first names, but the story is charming, notwithstanding the cobwebs of my mind.

   Wait a minute - "OUR neighbors"?!? Are you saying that you were living there, too???

   From Malcolm Davis ('65) of VA - 05/13/13 - "Marty Stuart & Tommy Emmanuel - Streamline - YouTube":

This is amazing.

MORE WOWZERS! "That is some mighty fine a-pickin' and a-grinnin'!" Thanks so much, Malcolm!

      From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 05/13/13 - "  Classic Photo and Classic Quote":

Hi, Carol:

The photo image taken May 13, 1944 in Westover Hills, VA is a classic. Thanks for sharing it with the TYPHOON Nation, and the reminder of the sacrifice of the soldiers of the 29th Division suffered during the amphibious landing on the beaches of Normandy. Such reminders are essential to remember the "Bedford Boys" and I hope everyone who subscribes to your newsletter will visit the museum and monument in Bedford, VA. Legal requirements for mobilization of a reserve and guard unit were changed when this community suffered such a high percentage.

When I read the article by my classmate,
      Harry Covert ('57) of MD it reminded me of a quote that you might also appreciate.
Francis Grund, the nineteenth-century French commentator on America, once said, "Change the domestic habits of the Americans, their religious devotion, and their high respect for morality, and it will not be necessary to change a single letter of the Constitution in order to vary the whole form of their government."

TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

   Thank you again, Major Madagan! I don't believe I recall ever hearing that quotation before. It's certainly quite sobering!

  From Ruth Reece Horace ('67) of FL - 04/08/13 - "Pets make you smile, ya gotta love em' (#29 of 36)":

  To make you smile.....

Happy Pet Day!!!

   AWW! Thanks, Ruthie!

From - 05/14/13:

Three sisters, ages 92, 94, and 96, live together. One night the 96-year-0ld draws a bath. She puts one foot in and pauses. "Was I getting in the tub or out?" she yells.

The 94-year-old hollers back, "I don't know, I'll come up to see." She starts up the stairs and stops. She shouts, "Was I going up or going down?"

The 92-year-old is sitting at the kitchen table having tea, listening to her sisters. She shakes her head and says, "I sure hope I never get that forgetful", and knocks on wood for good measure. Then she yells, "I'll come up and help both of you as soon as I see who's at the door."

As Time Goes By

Words and Music by Herman Hupfeld (01 Feb 1894 - 08 June 1951), 1931

[This day and age we're living in
Gives cause for apprehension
With speed and new invention
And things like fourth dimension.

Yet we get a trifle weary
With Mr. Einstein's theory.
So we must get down to earth at times
Relax relieve the tension

And no matter what the progress
Or what may yet be proved
The simple facts of life are such
They cannot be removed.]

You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh.
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by.

And when two lovers woo
They still say, "I love you."
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by.

Moonlight and love songs
Never out of date.
Hearts full of passion
Jealousy and hate.
Woman needs man
And man must have his mate
That no one can deny.

It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die.
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.

Oh yes, the world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.

1931 Warner Bros. Music Corporation, ASCAP
