Gustav Mahler's 147th Birthday

“If a composer could say what he had to say in words
he would not bother trying to say it in music.”

- Gustav Mahler
(7 July 1860 - 18 May 1911)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

    I've been celebrating Mahler's birthday for forty-eleven years now, but then haven't we all?!?

   And we did observe it here last year as well:

http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/07-07-06-NNHS-Gustav-Mahlers-146th-Birthday.html

   Today is also that wonderful, long-awaited date to write: 07/07/07! Have fun with this today!


NEWBIES:

1.   Brian Blakley (___HS, NV  - '04) of NV - 07/01/07:

   Brian was serving as an LDS Missionary here in Fayetteville until quite recently.  Having been officially released from his calling on 07/01/07, he asked to be added to our mailing list, as he perceived (correctly) that we were just having waaay too much fun here, and he didn't want to miss anything.

   Welcome aboard, Sweetie-Pie! I've added you to the wildly mis-named "Alumni Page" and to the Birthday List:

  From Brian Blakley (___HS, NV  - '04) of NV - 07/04/07:

BLAKE THE SNAKE IS ALIVE........hmm, maybe we should just go with Brian the Lion.....but it just doesn't have quite the ring. Hmm, well, I am sitting here in an RV on the Arkansas - Oklahoma state line... I will be home with all my comrades on Saturday. I am pretty excited...I think I finally got my school plans figured out.....and yes, it will probably...scratch that ...definitely include BYU.....I have given in.....but I'll probably end up getting a degree in psychology so I can help people like you.....just kidding.....there're a lot of things I can do with it....even though I'm probably still just gonna sell insurance......NOT drugs....any how....I'm no Bill Gates when it comes to computers, so I'm not sure how to send you a picture....I'm sure I can probably figure it out though.......ohh what the heck....put a pimp suit picture up there......it's gonna be fun....well, I better run....I have worldly things to do....

Love the Blakley formerly known as Elder.....

   A pimp suit picture, hmm?  Well, Brian, I just couldn't pick one; they were all so bizarrely excellent! 

   The background here is that Brian was serving in Wilson, NC before he came to Fayetteville.  While there he couldn't resist purchasing this lovely outfit (complete with gold tooth, not shown here) to take back to Nevada as a souvenir - and no doubt to surprise his mama!

       
       
       

   Wait a minute!  Ya know what?!?  My last available live-in tech rep,   Adrienne, went up to Buena Vista to visit her brother,    Dale, for a few weeks.  Before she left, she wrote me a highly detailed set of instructions for transferring the images from the camera to the computer.  I thought it would surely be a piece of cake.

   THEN I read Step #4: Put the memory card face up in the printer (bottom left foot of the printer).

   WHAT?!? I'm not gonna do that - not without backup here!!!  I might never get it outta there again! 

  Can you say Big Chicken?!?

   Nope, sorry, no sir, these waaay cool shots will be belayed for a bit longer.  Sorry, eva'body!


From Karrin Williams Frankie (Warwick HS - '61) of VA - 07/05/07 - "YOUR Phone info in Google":

I had not seen this and tried several numbers and it DOES pull up your info. I think it shows up if you have ever given out your number, as I tried my sister-in-law's and hers was the only one of about ten I tried and it didn't come up. Pass on to friends.

Am sure some of you have seen this and already taken care of it; please read this and take care of it!

Google has implemented a new feature which enables you to type a telephone number into the search bar and hit enter and you will be given the person's name and address. If you then hit Map, you will get a map to the person's house. Everyone should be aware of this! It's a nationwide reverse telephone book.

If a child gives out his/her phone number, someone can now look it up to find out where he/she lives. The safety issues are obvious, and alarming.

Note that you can have your phone number removed or blocked. I tried my number and it came up along with the mapquest and directions straight to my house. I did fill out the removal form for myself, and encourage all of you to do the same. Quite scary.

Please look up your own number.
 
In order to test whether your phone number is mapped, go to: google (http://www.google.com) Type your phone number in the search bar (i.e. 555-555-1212 ) and hit enter.

If you want to BLOCK Google from divulging your private information, simply click on your telephone number and then click on the Removal Form. Removal takes
 
Check your own number and although this may not apply to you if you have an unlisted number or cell phone as primary contact, but you may know someone who needs to know this.

If you want to BLOCK Google from divulging your private information, simply click on your telephone number and then click on the Removal Form. Removal takes 48-hours.

Check your own number and although this may not apply to you if you have an unlisted number or cell phone as primary contact, but you may know someone who needs to know this.

   Thanks, Karrin! I know that there are many of y'all for whom privacy is a very crucial issue, and this (of course) would be vitally important in a home with children.


From My Friend, Judy, of IL - 07/05/07 - "Quiz!":

Can you believe I don't know EVERYTHING??????


This is a quiz for people who know everything! I found out in a hurry that I didn't. These are not trick questions. They are straight questions with straight answers.

1. Name the one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends.

2. What famous North American landmark is constantly moving backward?

3. Of all vegetables, only two can live to produce on their own for several growing seasons. All other vegetables must be replanted every year. What are the only two perennial vegetables?

4. What fruit has its seeds on the outside?

5. In many liquor stores, you can buy pear brandy, with a real pear inside the bottle. The pear is whole and ripe, and the bottle is genuine; it hasn't been cut in any way. How did the pear get inside the bottle?

6. Only three words in standard English begin with the letters " dw" and they are all common words. Name two of them.

7. There are 14 punctuation marks in English grammar. Can you name at least half of them?

8. Name the only vegetable or fruit that is never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form except fresh.

9. Name 6 or more things that you can wear on your feet beginning with the letter "S."



Scroll down for the answers...










Answers To Quiz:

1. The one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends - Boxing

2. North American landmark constantly moving backward . Niagara Falls (The rim is worn down about two and a half feet each year because of the millions of gallons of water that rush over it every minute.)

3. Only two vegetables that can live to produce on their own for several growing seasons . . Asparagus and rhubarb.

4. The fruit with its seeds on the outside - Strawberry.

5. How did the pear get inside the brandy bottle? It grew inside the bottle. (The bottles are placed over pear buds when they are small, and are wired in place on the tree. The bottle is left in place for the entire growing season. When the pears are ripe, they are snipped off at the stems.)

6. Three English words beginning with dw - Dwarf, dwell and dwindle.

7. Fourteen punctuation marks in English grammar - Period, comma, colon, semicolon, dash, hyphen, apostrophe, question mark, exclamation point, quotation marks, brackets, parenthesis, braces, and ellipses.

8. The only vegetable or fruit never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form but fresh - Lettuce.

9. Six or more things you can wear on your feet beginning with "s" - Shoes, socks, sandals, sneakers, slippers, skis, skates, snowshoes, stockings, stilts.

PLEASE DO YOUR PART....... Today is National Mental Health Day. You can do your part by remembering to send an e-mail to at least one unstable person

Well, my job's done!

  
ARGHH!!!  Actually, after feeling totally STOO-PID for a while,
I answered #4 correctly, and had 2 out of 3 for #6, 10 out of 14 for #7, and 8 out of 10 for #9. Thanks Jude!


  From Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 07/06/07:

Carol:

..... Our precious daughter, Ansley is getting married on Saturday, 07/07/07 at 10:30 a.m. and her picture will be in the Daily Press on Sunday, 07/08. I pray that I will be strong and not do anything to take away from her special day. We are all emotional in our family and I wish I were not so much this way. We love her and want her happiness more than anything. She is marring H. Winston Trice formerly of Mechanicsville,VA. Winston is a fine young man and I am sure they will both be happy. They will reside in Hayes, VA, where he has a beautiful home.

Carol, you are the best.....thank you for all you do.

Take care, Fred Mays, class of '60.

   Congratulations on your daughter's wedding, Fred! I'm sure you'll be fine! EVA'BODY cries at weddings!

   Take care - and thanks!


NEWS FLASH:

  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 07/06/07, 10:04 PM - "Jesus Paid It All":

Dear Friends and Family,

It breaks my heart to say that my Mother went home to be with the Lord this morning (7-6-07) at 10:18. Her last coherent words were "Jesus Paid It All, All To Him I Owe", what a wonderful testimony and example of abounding faith in God. Needless to say, I will miss her more than even I can comprehend at this point. Her unwavering faith and devotion touched so many lives.

I want to thank everyone for the many prayers and kind e-mails. And although they did not save her life, they eased her peacefully into a blessed eternity with our Lord. Mom is only a memory away and I have many wonderful ones. Thanks again.


Joyce Cahoon

   Oh, Joyce, I'm so very sorry to hear this! And you're right, what a beautiful way to leave this earth!

   I'll make her Memorial Newsletter as more details become available.  You and your family have our deepest sympathies.  I'm sure you can feel the prayers being offered in your behalf even now.



IMPORTANT REPEATS:

From Karrin Williams Frankie (Warwick HS - '61) of VA - 06/26/07 - "Calling all Riverside Hospital Graduates":

I just received this email from a high school classmate to pass on. Please pass onto anyone you think might be a nurse or knows someone so they can have a great reunion. With so many people moving or getting married or re-married after graduation, it is hard to find everyone and emailing is a wonderful tool.

Thanks.



Karrin,

I know you have access to other classes besides our own. We are trying to let as many people know about our reunion as possible. Please forward this if it is not too much trouble.

Riverside School of Professional Nursing is having a Grand Reunion of all classes July 21 and July 22, 2007. There will be a luncheon on Saturday and a tour of the new school campus. Saturday night is open for the individual classes to meet. Sunday there will be a family picnic in NN Park, Jefferson Avenue near Ft. Eustis.

If you are a graduate or know someone who is, please help us get the word out so as many as possible will know and be able to attend. e-mail response or questions to:

rspnalumni@widowmaker.com

You can also e-mail me.
Judy Ring Whitehead

Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen N:o 3:
Ich hab' ein glühend Messer
Songs of a Traveling Journeyman No. 3:
I Have a Gleaming Knife


Ich hab'ein glühend Messer,
Ein Messer in meiner Brust,
O weh! Das schneid't so tief
in jede Freud' und jede Lust.
Ach, was ist das für ein böser Gast!
Nimmer hält er Ruh',
nimmer hält er Rast,
Nicht bei Tag, noch bei Nacht,
wenn ich schlief!
O weh!
Wenn ich den Himmel seh',
Seh'ich zwei blaue Augen stehn!
O weh! Wenn ich im gelben Felde geh',
Seh'ich von fern das blonde Haar
Im Winde weh'n!
O weh!
Wenn ich aus dem Traum auffahr'
Und höre klingen ihr silbern Lachen,
O weh!
Ich wollt', ich läg auf der
Schwarzen Bahr',
Könnt' nimmer die Augen aufmachen!


I have a red-hot knife,
a knife in my breast.
O woe! It cuts so deeply
into every joy and delight.
Alas, what an evil guest it is!
Never does it rest,
never does it relax,
not by day, not by night,
when I would sleep.
O woe!
When I gaze up into the sky,
I see two blue eyes there.
O woe! When I walk in the yellow field,
I see from afar her blond hair
waving in the wind.
O woe!
When I start from a dream
and hear the tinkle of her silvery laugh,
O woe!
I wish I could lay down on my
black bier -
Would that my eyes never open again!
