My Foolish Heart
I watched my foolish heart expand
In the lazy glow of benevolence,
O'er the various modes of man's belief.
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
This is one of my sister's (Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) favorite songs, so I always like to use it for her birthday.
Happy Birthday, Lady!

From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 07/25/13 - "Famous Marine":
Bea Arthur (nee Bernice Frankel)
(1922-2009) SSgt. USMC 1943-45 WW II. Enlisted
and assigned as typist at Marine HQ in Wash DC, then air stations in VA and NC.
Best remembered for her title role in the TV series Maude and as Dorothy in
WOWZERONI! Thanks so much, Adonis! Ms. Arthur has of course been on our Famous Marines page since its inception ten years ago, but I was never able to locate a photo of her in uniform before! This page is much better now:
From the Most Talented Boy in the Class of1954, Jack Nelson of Northern VA - 07/25/13 - "Impressive Vietnam War Web site":
First click on a state. When it
opens, scroll down to the city and the names will appear.
I hope that everyone who receives this appreciates what those who served in Vietnam sacrificed for our country.
The link below is a virtual wall of all those lost during the Vietnam war with the names, bio's and other information on our lost heroes. Those who remember that time frame, or perhaps lost friends or family can look them up on this site.
You may wish to pass this link on to others so they have the opportunity to look up loved ones, also, as many knew wonderful people whose names are listed.
This is definitely sobering, Jack! Thank you so much for sharing it with us again!
From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 07/25/13 - "HISTORY OF THE CAR RADIO":
|HISTORY OF THE CAR RADIO
Seems like cars have always had radios, but they didn't, and here's the true story:
One evening, in 1929, two young men named William Lear and Elmer Wavering drove their girlfriends to a lookout point high above the Mississippi River town of Quincy, Illinois to watch the sunset.
It was a romantic night to be sure, but one of the women observed that it would be even nicer if they could listen to music in the car.
Lear and Wavering liked the idea. Both men had tinkered with radios (Lear had served as a radio operator in the U.S. Navy during World War II) and it wasn't long before they were taking apart a home radio and trying to get it to work in a car.
But it wasn't as easy as it sounds: automobiles have ignition switches, generators, spark plugs, and other electrical equipment that generate noisy static interference, making it nearly impossible to listen to the radio when the engine was running.
One by one, Lear and Wavering identified and
eliminated each source of electrical interference. When they finally got
their radio to work, they took it to a radio convention in Chicago.
The first production model was called the 5T71.
Galvin decided he needed to come up with something a little catchier. In
those days many companies in the phonograph and radio businesses used
the suffix "ola" for their names - Radiola, Columbiola, and Victrola
were three of the biggest. Galvin decided to do the same thing, and
since his radio was intended for use in a motor vehicle, he decided to
call it the Motorola.
Selling complicated car radios that cost 20
percent of the price of a brand-new car wouldn't have been easy in the
best of times, let alone during the Great Depression -- Galvin lost
money in 1930 and struggled for a couple of years after that. But things
picked up in 1933 when Ford began offering Motorola's pre-installed at
the factory. In 1934 they got another boost when Galvin struck a deal
with B.F. Goodrich tire company
to sell and install them in its chain of tire stores.
The two men who installed the first radio in
Paul Galvin's car? Elmer Wavering and William Lear ended up taking very
different paths in life.
From My Friend, Katie, of UT - 07/25/13 - "There Comes a Time...":
SO TRUE! Thanks, Katie!
From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 07/18/13 - "Please keep this going (#7 in a series of 7)":
AND AMEN! Thanks,
Joyce - these have been fun!

They make wonderful pendants or can be used for earring drops. Use them to make lovely pins, key chains, cell phone or bag charms. Hang on your pets collar or your Christmas tree... no matter what you use them for, they look great. "

Two old men
were sitting in the yard outside the care home one day when
Tim turned to the other and said, "John, I'm really feeling
my age today. I just hurt all over. How are you feeling?"
John replied, "I feel just like a new born babe."
Tim looked at him, startled. "A new born babe, really?"
"Yep, I have no hair, no teeth, and I think I just wet my pants."

My Foolish Heart
Music byVictor Young (08 Aug 1899 or 1900 10 Nov 1956)
Words by Ned Washington (15 Aug 1901 20 Dec 1976), 1949
The night is like a lovely tune, beware my foolish heart!
How white the ever constant moon, take care, my foolish heart!
There's a line between love and fascination,
That's hard to see on an evening such as this,
For they give the very same sensation.
When you are lost in the passion of a kiss.
Your lips are much too close to mine, beware my foolish heart!
But should our eager lips combine, then let the fire start.
For this time it isn't fascination, or a dream that will fade and fall apart,
It's love this time, it's love, my foolish heart!
