Hit #75,000 was made on Friday, July 11, 2008 at 5:01 PM by an unknown user. Too bad, too; that was a major hit!
1. Jamey Douglas Bacon ('66) of VA:
From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 07/10/08:
From Denbigh Boulevard, turn on Old Denbigh Boulevard and then in to Warwick Forrest and it is the last building on the right. The building is called the Gardens.
Thank you so much, dearest Judy - and Brian! We're so glad to hear that Jamey's feeling better now - please give her our love!
From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 07/09/08 - "For the birds":
I've been wondering if any of you guys have
noticed the change in the bird population this year.
First and importantly, we have that Golden Tail Hawk, new to the area, that seems to like rabbits, squirrels, and I'm sorry to say, pet puppies - which I'm sure are all the same from its viewpoint. I saw this up close and personal myself with a rabbit not twenty feet from my window!
Then there are these little sparrows which may be Yellow Chats that are bright yellow on their chest and a moss green on their head. Once they land in a tree they totally disappear.
We have a ton of Cardinals, unusual. But I have seen little to no Blue Jays (which for those who understand me, know it is my favorite Astrological sign - Pretty to look at but a pain in the butt to live with - I know many Blue Jays)
I've noticed very few Robins but the Mocking Bird is hanging on.
More Black birds - BIG, Stephen King size.
More Vultures, right on the road and not-afraid-of-anything kind of Vultures.
Not many butterflies.
OK, group, lets have it! What have you seen ?
Linda May ' 66
WOW , thanks, Linda May! My observations (or lack thereof) would hardly be applicable, as I'm so far removed from the Sacred Soil, but all I've really noticed on the days when I leave the Great Indoors to venture outside (as when I go to my mailbox ) is an increase in squirrels, with our normally plentiful FAT robins and cardinals.
How 'bout y'all?
From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 7/09/08 - "You will like this":
A friend sent this to me. It's been said that God first
separated the salt water from the fresh, made dry land, planted a garden, made
animals and fish... all before making a human.. He made and provided what we'd
need before we were born. These are best & more powerful when eaten raw.
We're such slow learners...
God left us a great clue as to what foods help what part of our body!
God's Pharmacy! Amazing!
A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye.. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye... and YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.
A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.
Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart.. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.
A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.
Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.
Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
Avocadoes, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female - they look just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).
Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.
Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.
Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries
Oranges, Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.
Onions look like the body's cells. Today's research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.
You're right; I DO like this! Thanks so much, Jean!
From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 07/09/08 - "America":
I don't know how many of you have seen this, but I would hate for you to miss
it, so here it comes. You, too,
- '65 - of VA)!
Sorry if it has already made its way "round" your way.
THIS IS AWESOME!!
Turn your speakers on then sit back and
You are gonna love this.
You're right, Lady - it IS awesome and I DO love it! Thanks, Judy!
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL to Bill Black ('66) of GA- 07/10/08 - "Fort Benning and Hills & Dales Estate":
Thanks for the "Care Package" from Fort Benning. The package was loaded with good information and I so enjoyed your letter describing how you enjoyed your day at the Georgia Welcome Center in Columbus, Georgia greetings travelers on behalf of Hills and Dales Estate. The Calloway Gardens are spectacular and so are their brochures. We look forward to getting up that neck of the woods soon.
You charged my "military battery" today!!!
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL
This graphic will provide an explanation of why Bill Black (AKA: Jim Quinn) spent the day in Columbus, GA greeting travelers.
The are the most gorgeous gardens. You hear lots of "Ohhhs and Ahhhs" from the visitors. So, enjoy!
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL
I can well imagine! Thanks so much for sharing these, Adonis!
From Bill Black ('66) of GA - 07/10/08 - " Joe "Adonis" Madagan's E-Mail":
But seriously, we had a huge electrical storm come through LaGrange this afternoon, and I was sitting in my office, counting the time between flashes and rumbles to determine how close they really were when there was a sudden Flash/BAMMM that nearly put me on the floor. The house, about two hundred yards uphill from where I was sitting, sustained a direct hit on the west chimney, putting a split in the brick and stucco about two inches wide and five or six feet long.
Image #003 shows the cracked stucco, Image #005 is a slightly better view because in the copper-lined valley between the roof planes, you see shattered terra-cotta roof tiles lying in the valley.
|#003 - 6:53 PM||#005 - 6:55 PM|
|Thursday, July 10, 2008|
We'll see if I have a place to work tomorrow.
YOWZERONI-RINI - how scary! Thanks for the images, Bill - glad you were protected from the storm!
From My #2 Daughter-in-Law, Bethany Winona Harty (Siuslaw HS, OR - '94) of OH - 07/10/08:
Just thought I'd share with you guys a post that I have on my WordArt site - It's before and after pics of Brent (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL - '90 - of OH) and me on our diets. Brent is SO SKINNY!!! awesome, eh?
|Monday, December 31, 2007||Monday, June 30, 2008|
I just had to share some Before/After pictures
from this diet that my hubby and I have been on for the last 8 weeks or so. It's
really working well.
Wow, I can't believe I'm posting this "before" pic of us. The first shot was taken on in North Carolina at my in-laws' house on New Year's Eve of 2007 - just 7 months ago. Wow! Brent was weighing 255 lbs, and I was...um...do I post my weight? OK, just keep in mind that I'm 5'8", and hold my weight well (LOL!). I was 194 lbs.
And the second one taken June 30..... Here we are now. Brent is weighing 204 lbs. (WOW!!!), and I am 166 lbs. (I'm pretty thin at 155). I'm getting close to my goal, and I'm pretty excited :) In case you're interested, we're doing the "1st Personal Diet" by Dr. Cohen. It's very exacting, and a bit costly, but IT WORKS!!! and that's the important part :)
WOWZERONI-RINI-ROONI, thanks, Bethany! You two look mah-velous, Dahlin'! Congratulations!
Pam Larmer Traugott ('62) of VA - 07/10/08 - "Christian the Lion":
I watched this video three times and teared up
each time. What a beautiful miracle caught on tape. The simple uncomplicated way
these two young men gave a full life to this magnificent cat took my breath away
. I felt heavy hearted for the last note of the state of affairs in this African
Christian the Lion
Oh, WOWZERS - what a beautiful story! Okay, Lady, I'll admit it - ya got me!
Thanks so much, Pam!
