06/26/10 - NNHS Newsletter - Here I Go Again

“Sometimes, when one person is missing,
the whole world seems depopulated.”

- Alphonse de Lamartine
(21 Oct 1780 - 28 Feb 1869)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Today's theme is another first for us here:

BONUS - - Here I Go Again - Whitesnake - "one of the most famous 80's music video in HD"


"Here I Go Again" is a song recorded by Whitesnake...

The song was written by lead singer, David Coverdale, and former Whitesnake guitarist, Bernie Marsden. The most notable differences between the original and revamped version are the style of the music (blues-rock versus hard rock) and a slight change in the lyrics. The chorus of the original version features the lines:

"An' here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a hobo I was born to walk alone"

Whereas the newer version is:

"Like a drifter I was born to walk alone"

Whitesnake's Here I go again was featured as one of the greatest songs of the 80's on VH1.


   Best Wishes to the Combined Classes of 1945 who are having their 65-Year Reunion this evening!

       From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of IL - 06/24/10 - "Rolling Thunder 2010 - A Marine's Vigil":

One tough marine. Thought you might like this one, my beautiful lady.....

Watch full screen

This short video speaks volumes.

3,000 vets on motorcycles from across the USA paraded in D.C. the Sunday before Memorial Day, while a solitary, saluting Marine greeted them out on Constitution Avenue... The Marine stood at salute for 3 straight hours, while the parade of roaring bikes kept on coming.... Rolling Thunder is held in remembrance of those who've fallen in the military.... the event (or the group) is called Rolling Thunder.

George Bush used to meet these bikers before they paraded..... The camera is on the Marine a lot... watch his struggles with his emotions, and his struggles with holding that salute. The way he salutes is very touching... his head lowered, his eyes down, in reverence for the fallen... I am an ex-Marine sergeant, and I know what he was feeling... and as I watched him, I could feel it too.... it got to be overwhelming for him... and the tears started flowing... Watch what he says when he finally breaks, but keeps right on holding that salute.

   WOWZERONI! Thanks, Dools!

        From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of TX (currently visiting in IL) - 06/25/10, 5:48 PM - "Missouri River":

  ...the Missouri River flowing over the boat ramp a few miles away from the confluence into the Mississippi River.  It was quite fun & relaxing on a beautiful summer evening @ sunset.

   Thanks, Brent! I'm glad you're enjoying revisiting your old stomping grounds!

    From Bonnie Loughran Marshall (Hampton HS - '65) of MN - 06/26/10, 1:39 AM - "Reminiscing":

Hi Carol...was reminiscing and wondering if anyone remembers the 1963-64 TV show 'Hootenanny Saturday Night'?  If anyone might recall...the 'folk-fest' went to different colleges and taped the shows and aired them soon thereafter.  There were two tapings at the College of William and Mary...not sure of the exact dates of the actual events, but they were aired on 4/11/64 and 4/25/64.  My older sister Valerie was attending William and Mary at the time and she, myself and another friend went to the first show. Not sure if we were in a gymnasium but our seats were the 'floor'...and the cameras were rolling.  At one point, during a performance of "Green Fields" by the Brothers Four, everyone around us was snickering that the cameras were on our section.  As it happened, when we watched the aired show, I somehow managed to escape the cutting room floor...and my face was plastered on the screen for about 10 seconds.  I believe I've since seen clips from the second W&M show but not from the one I attended.  Note below are the performances of the show I attended: 

College of William and Mary, Williamsburg VA #1:;summary    

The Brothers Four: "Green Fields," "The Ox-Driver's Song," "Beautiful Brown Eyes," "Beans Taste Fine"
Bob Gibson: "Sweet Betsy From Pike," "Fare Thee Well"
Enid Mosier & Alfonso: Unknown
The Romeros (Flamenco Guitarists): Unknown
The Ivy League Trio: Unknown
Elaine Malbin: "Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair"
Stan Rubin & His Tigertown Five: Unknown
Charlie Manna: Stand-up comedy routine

Bonnie Loughran-Marshall HHS '65 

   Hey, Bonnie! How cool that you were not only there, but on camera! Some things never change: the cameras do like to focus on pretty gals in the audience!

   Thanks for the memories! I certainly remember the episode described; I tried never to miss watching the show. Anyone else?!?

   "Anyone? Anyone?"


  From Jane Chambers of VA - 07/01/09 AND 02/07/10 - "CNC BOOK BROCHURE & AD" AND 61-62 DECADERS ADDENDA:

   Thanks, Jane!


From ArcaMax Jokes - 06/25/10:

Missing School

The local high school has a policy that the parents must call the school if a student is to be absent for the day. Alice deciding to skip school and go to the mall with her friends. So she waited until her parents had left for work and called the school herself.

"Hi, I'm calling to report that Alice is unable to make it to school today because she is ill."

Secretary at high school answered, "I'm sorry to hear that. I'll note her absence. Who is this calling, please?"

"This is my mother."

Here I Go Again

Written by David Coverdale (b. 22 Sept 1951) and Bernie Marsden (b. 07 May 1951)

Recorded by Whitesnake, 1982

I don't know where I'm goin
but I sure know where I've been
hanging on the promises in songs of yesterday.
An' I've made up my mind, I ain't wasting no more time
but here I go again, here I go again.

Tho' I keep searching for an answer
I never seem to find what I'm looking for.
Oh Lord, I pray you give me strength to carry on
'cos I know what it means to walk along the lonely street of dreams.

Here I go again on my own
goin' down the only road I've ever known.
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.
An' I've made up my mind, I ain't wasting no more time.

Just another heart in need of rescue
waiting on love's sweet charity
an' I'm gonna hold on for the rest of my days
'cos I know what it means to walk along the lonely street of dreams.

Here I go again on my own
goin' down the only road I've ever known.
Like a hobo I was born to walk alone.
An' I've made up my mind, I ain't wasting no more time
but here I go again, here I go again,
here I go again, here I go.

An' I've made up my mind, I ain't wasting no more time.

Here I go again on my own
goin' down the only road I've ever known.
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
'cos I know what it means to walk along the lonely street of dreams.

Here I go again on my own
goin' down the only road I've ever known.
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.
An' I've made up my mind, I ain't wasting no more time
but here I go again, here I go again,
here I go again, here I go,
here I go again
