Tuesday, June 15, 1965 - Actor Steve Cochran (born Robert Alexander Cochran on 25 May 1917 in Eureka, California) died at the age of 48 on his yacht off the coast of Guatemala due to an acute lung infection. His body, along with three alive but upset female assistants, remained onboard for ten days since the three women didn't know how to operate the boat. The boat drifted to shore in Port Champerico, Guatemala and was found by authorities. There were various rumors of foul play and poisoning, and Merle Oberon tried to use her influence to push for further police investigations. No new evidence was found.


       From Bill Lee (Warwick HS - '54) of NC - 06/13/10 - "An item for WWII memorable date section of your newsletter":

June 15, 1942  was the day the US Army activated the Hampton Roads Port of Embarkation (HRPE). Until late 1945, the Army ran the port operations in Newport News and Norfolk. HRPE was the third most active of eight ports taken over by the government during WWII. Only New York and San Francisco processed more service personnel, coming and going. When HRPE was shut down, a total of 1,687,000 people had passed through the HRPE port area.

   WOWZERS! Thank you so much for this valuable addition, Bill! This did not pop up on my radar.


  From Kathy Cooper ('70) of VA - 06/14/10 - "Roy Lee Mays":

My cousin, Roy Lee Mays, passed away May 28, 2010, after a long illness. He was in the class of '69, I believe.

... He was living in Saint Paul, VA. However, he has been in a nursing home for quite a while. I will check with my mother about the obituary. (The nursing home was in another city.)

I will let you know.

Thanks,
Kathy Cooper

   Oh, Kathy, I'm so sorry to learn this! I'll be preparing a Memorial Edition for him soon; hopefully we'll be able to locate his obituary very shortly.


From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 06/14/10 - "Cucumbers":

WOW, WHAT A LITTLE GEM THE CUCUMBER IS . . . .

Who says you can't learn something new each day?

1. Cucumbers contain most of the vitamins you need every day, just one cucumber contains Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc.

2. Feeling tired in the afternoon, put down the caffeinated soda and pick up a cucumber. Cucumbers are a good source of B Vitamins and Carbohydrates that can provide that quick pick-me-up that can last for hours.

3. Tired of your bathroom mirror fogging up after a shower? Try rubbing a cucumber slice along the mirror, it will eliminate the fog and provide a soothing, spa-like fragrance.

4. Are grubs and slugs ruining your planting beds? Place a few slices in a small pie tin and your garden will be free of pests all season long. The chemicals in the cucumber react with the aluminum to give off a scent undetectable to humans but drive garden pests crazy and make them flee the area.

5. Looking for a fast and easy way to remove cellulite before going out or to the pool? Try rubbing a slice or two of cucumbers along your problem area for a few minutes, the phytochemicals in the cucumber cause the collagen in your skin to tighten, firming up the outer layer and reducing the visibility of cellulite. Works great on wrinkles too!!!

6. Want to avoid a hangover or terrible headache? Eat a few cucumber slices before going to bed and wake up refreshed and headache free. Cucumbers contain enough sugar, B vitamins and electrolytes to replenish essential nutrients the body lost, keeping everything in equilibrium, avoiding both a hangover and headache!!

7. Looking to fight off that afternoon or evening snacking binge? Cucumbers have been used for centuries and often used by European trappers, traders and explores for quick meals to thwart off starvation.

8. Have an important meeting or job interview and you realize that you don't have enough time to polish your shoes? Rub a freshly cut cucumber over the shoe, its chemicals will provide a quick and durable shine that not only looks great but also repels water.

9. Out of WD 40 and need to fix a squeaky hinge? Take a cucumber slice and rub it along the problematic hinge, and voila, the squeak is gone!

10. Stressed out and don't have time for massage, facial or visit to the spa? Cut up an entire cucumber and place it in a boiling pot of water, the chemicals and nutrients from the cucumber with react with the boiling water and be released in the steam, creating a soothing, relaxing aroma that has been shown the reduce stress in new mothers and college students during final exams.

11. Just finish a business lunch and realize you don't have gum or mints? Take a slice of cucumber and press it to the roof of your mouth with your tongue for 30 seconds to eliminate bad breath, the phytochemcials will kill the bacteria in your mouth responsible for causing bad breath.

12. Looking for a 'green' way to clean your faucets, sinks or stainless steel? Take a slice of cucumber and rub it on the surface you want to clean. Not only will it remove years of tarnish and bring back the shine, but is won't leave streaks and won't harm your fingers or fingernails while you clean.

13. Using a pen and made a mistake? Take the outside of the cucumber and slowly use it to erase the pen writing, also works great on crayons and markers that the kids have used to decorate the walls!!

Pass this along to everybody you know who is looking for better and safer ways to solve life's everyday problems

   WOWZERS! Let's hear it for cucumbers! Thanks, Norris!


  From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 06/14/10 - "Prayer":

Every new day is a gift-- all you have to do is untie the ribbon  ;-)  

Knock, Knock, I knocked at heaven's door this morning..

God asked me....'My child, what can I do for you?'
And I said, 'Father, please protect and bless the person reading this message.'
God smiled and answered...'Request granted'. 

 
'Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of Battle.' 

   OOOH! Thanks, Dearest Judy!

FINALLY:

From ArcaMax Jokes - 06/14/10:

Sociology

In my sociology class, we were instructed to write down answers to some questions the teacher was asking.

"Next question," announced the instructor. "How would you like to be seen by the opposite sex?"

I was thinking about my answer when the young woman next to me turned and asked, "How do you spell 'intellectual?'"

On the Other Hand

Written by Paul Overstreet (b. 17 Mar 1955) and Don Schlitz (b. 29 Aug 1952)

Recorded by Randy Travis (b. 04 May 1959), 1985


On one hand I count the reasons, I could stay with you
And hold you close to me, all night long.
So many lover's games, I’d love to play with you
On that hand there’s no reason, why it's wrong

But on the other hand, there's a golden band
To remind me of someone who would not understand
On one hand I could stay and be your lovin’ man
But the reason I must go is on the other hand

In your arms I feel the passion, I thought had died
When I looked into your eyes, I found myself
When I first kissed your lips, I felt so alive
I've got to hand it to you girl, you're something else
