White Christmas (in July)

“Unless we make Christmas an occasion to share our blessings,
all the snow in Alaska won't make it 'white'.”

- Bing Crosby
(03 May 1903 - 14 Oct 1977)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   We've celebrated Christmas in July here just two years ago, but I think with this abominable heat it's time to do it again!

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Christmas_(song):

"White Christmas" is an Irving Berlin song reminiscing about an old-fashioned Christmas setting. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the version sung by Bing Crosby is the best-selling single of all time, with estimated sales in excess of 50 million copies worldwide.[1][2][3][4]

Accounts vary as to when and where Berlin wrote the song.[4] One story is that he wrote it in 1940, poolside at the Biltmore hotel in Phoenix, Arizona. He often stayed up all night writing — he told his secretary, "Grab your pen and take down this song. I just wrote the best song I've ever written — heck, I just wrote the best song that anybody's ever written!"[5]

The first public performance of the song was by Bing Crosby, on his NBC radio show The Kraft Music Hall on Christmas Day, 1941; the recording is not believed to have survived.[4][6] He subsequently recorded the song with the John Scott Trotter Orchestra and the Ken Darby Singers for Decca Records in just 18 minutes on May 29, 1942, and it was released on July 30 as part of an album of six 78-rpm songs from the film Holiday Inn.[4][6] At first, Crosby did not see anything special about the song. He just said "I don't think we have any problems with that one, Irving."

The song initially performed poorly and was overshadowed by the film's first hit song: "Be Careful, It's my Heart".[6] By the end of October 1942, however, "White Christmas" topped the "Your Hit Parade" chart. It remained in that position until well into the new year.[6] (It has often been noted that the mix of melancholy — "just like the ones I used to know" — with comforting images of home — "where the treetops glisten" — resonated especially strongly with listeners during World War II. The Armed Forces Network was flooded with requests for the song.[6])

In 1942 alone, Crosby's recording spent eleven weeks on top of the Billboard charts. The original version also hit number one on the Harlem Hit Parade for three weeks,[7] Crosby's first-ever appearance on the black-oriented chart. Re-released by Decca, the single returned to the #1 spot during the holiday seasons of 1945 and 1946 (on the chart dated January 4, 1947), thus becoming the only single with three separate runs at the top of the U.S. charts. The recording became a chart perennial, reappearing annually on the pop chart twenty separate times before Billboard magazine created a distinct Christmas chart for seasonal releases.

Following its prominence in the musical Holiday Inn, the composition won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1942.[8] In the film, Bing Crosby sings "White Christmas" as a duet with actress Marjorie Reynolds, though her voice was dubbed by Martha Mears. This now-familiar scene was not the moviemakers' initial plan; in the script as originally conceived, Reynolds, not Crosby, was to sing the song.[6]

The version of "White Christmas" most often heard today is not the original 1942 Crosby recording, as the master had become damaged due to frequent use. Crosby re-recorded the track on March 18, 1947, accompanied again by the Trotter Orchestra and the Darby Singers, with every effort made to reproduce the original recording session.[5] There are subtle differences in the orchestration, most notably the addition of a celesta and flutes to brighten up the introduction.

Crosby was dismissive of his role in the song's success, saying later that "a jackdaw with a cleft palate could have sung it successfully." But Crosby was associated with it for the rest of his career. Another Crosby vehicle — the 1954 musical White Christmas — was the highest-grossing film of 1954...

Carol,

Please put the following note in your next newsletter:

The Class of 1966 45-year Reunion has moved the Saturday night function FROM the Warwick Yacht Club TO Point Plaza Hotel, 950 J. Clyde Morris Boulevard, Newport News.  The start time has changed FROM 7:00 p.m. TO 7:30 p.m. in the Chesapeake Room.  Dress is casual, Bermudas allowed.  The reason for the move is that we outgrew the Yacht Club!!  Also, this means that we can now accept more people.

TODAY IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES:

From http://www.civilwarinteractive.com/This%20Day/thisday0727.htm - INCLUDING:

Saturday, July 27, 1861
MCCLELLAN MAKES MANASSAS MOVEMENT

George McClellan achieved the goal today for which he had struggled, connived and exerted every bit of political leverage he could muster. No, it had nothing to do with contact with the Confederates; the struggle was to get to the top of the military heap, which in these days was command of the Army of the Potomac. His commander in chief expanded on a memo he had written right after the debacle of the Battle of Manassas. Detailing the moves which should be made to put down the rebellion as quickly as possible, he suggested Union moves on Manassas Junction and Strasburg in Virginia, Memphis to be attacked from Cairo, Il., and a move from Cincinnati on east Tennessee. As the supposedly neutral Kentucky stood in the way of the latter, there would prove to be difficulties.

TOONE’S TRIBULATIONS TROUBLE TENNESSEE


It was yet another day of minor skirmishes here and there, but no preparation for, recovery from, or conduct of major battles or operations. Some of these were in connection with what was known as “operations”--more than an exploration but less than a planned battle. One such proceeded from Rienzi to Ripley, Miss.; another one went for a couple of days between Woodville to Guntersville, Ala. One action big enough to be classified as at least a “skirmish” took place at Toone’s Station (also known as Lower Post Ferry), Tennessee.

Monday, July 27, 1863
YANCEY YIELDS YANKEE YOKE

William Lowndes Yancey died this day in Montgomery, Alabama, a frustrated man. His history is interesting: he was Southern born. After his father died his mother remarried an avid abolitionist and the family moved to New York. Yancey lived there until he was a student at Williams College in Massachusetts when he abruptly dropped out and moved back South to read law under an old friend of his father. He was an orator of some note, and so devoted to the South that he was advocating secession years before the events of Ft. Sumter actually occurred. His ambition was always to be President of a Southern Confederacy, but he was too radical even for them and was passed over in favor of Jefferson Davis. He spent the war years in a “loyal opposition” working to restrain even what limited powers Davis had.

HOOKER, HUFFY, HASTENS HIBERNATION

It was a game of musical chairs at the headquarters of the Union Army of the Tennessee today. Gen. John “Black Jack” Logan, head of this force, had compiled a solid record for a man with no military training whatsoever, and was going to accompany William T. Sherman to Atlanta and beyond. This left the army command open and today this prize went to Oliver O. Howard, who was compiling a much better record in the West than he had with the 11th Corps of the Army of the Potomac in the East. The one with his nose most out of joint was Gen. Joseph “Fighting Joe” Hooker, who got his nickname from a newspaper typo rather than any battlefield accomplishment. Hooker, currently a corps commander, felt that since his commission predated Howard's, he should get the job. He was in fact in such a snit that he quit the army altogether.

  From Joe Drewry ('58) of VA - 07/26/11 - "Good news - Eileen Rash NNHS 1957":

I think we all were enthralled with the true life fairy tale of      Eileen Rash and Lowell Vaught during our high school days.  The story continues.
 
Eileen Rash graduated with the NNHS Class of 1957.

   WOWZERONI! How sweet is that?!? Thanks so much, Joe!

   I myself was privileged to take private flute lessons from Eileen in her home back in the fall of 1960 when I was in the eighth grade. I still remember the many things she taught me - and how she always pushed me to exceed that which I thought I could do!


    From Brownie Shaffer Haracivet ('62) of VA - 07/26/11:

Hi Carol,

...Will I see you this year at Evelyn's in Buckroe?
 
Thanks a bunch for all you do for us. 

   Thank you, Pretty Lady! At the moment I think it's extremely doubtful due to the timing that I'll be able to make Evelyn's Big Buckroe Birthday Party on September 17, but I've been wrong before!

   I was asked to sing a solo ("Christ the Lord Is Risen Today" - I suppose that meant it was Easter in July!) in Sunday School class Sunday (which in itself was pretty strange as my solo days are long behind me, but I digress...), so for the occasion I wore my beautiful blue neck tiara you made me several years back! Thanks again, Brownie!

  From Jay Styles ('68) of VA - 07/26/11 - "Minorities":

(PLEASE READ ALL OF THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM) !

One of Maxine's Very Best!!!!!

 

Minorities  

We need to show more sympathy for these people. 
* They travel miles in the heat. 
* They risk their lives crossing a border. 
* They don't get paid enough wages. 
* They do jobs that others won't do or are afraid to do. 
* They live in crowded conditions among a people who speak a different language. 
* They rarely see their families, and they face adversity all day ~ every day. 


I'm not talking about illegal aliens ~


I'm talking about our troops!
 

Doesn't it seem strange that so many are willing to lavish all kinds of social benefits on illegals, but don't support our troops?

Wouldn't it be great if we took the $360,000,000,000 (that's billion) we spend on illegals every year, and spend it on our troops!!!



Please pass this on; this is worth the short time it takes. 

A veteran is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for any amount, up to and including their life.

   AMEN! Thanks so much, Jay Sweetie!


  From Cookie Phillips Tyndall ('64) of VA - 07/26/11 - "Never Lie To A Woman":

Never Lie to a Woman....


A man called home to his wife and said, "Honey,  I have been asked to go fishing up in Canada with my boss and several of his friends. We'll be gone for a week. This is a good opportunity for me to get that promotion I've been wanting, so could you please pack enough clothes for a week and set out my rod and fishing box? We're leaving from the office and I will swing by the house to pick my things up.
 
Oh! Please pack my new blue silk pajamas.

The wife thought this sounded a bit fishy but being the good wife she is, did exactly what her husband asked. 

The following weekend he came home a little tired but otherwise looking good. 

The wife welcomed him home and asked if he caught many fish. 

He said, "Yes! Lots of Salmon, some Bluegill, and a few Swordfish. But why didn't you pack my new blue silk p
ajamas like I asked you to do?" 

You'll love the answer...

The wife replied, "
I did. They're in your fishing box ..." 

Never Lie To A Woman...!!!

Send this to all the smart Women And Men who can handle the truth.

     Thanks, Cookie!


FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 07/26/11:

There were two guys working for the city. One would dig a hole -- he would dig, dig, dig.

The other would come behind him and fill the hole -- fill, fill, fill. These two men worked furiously; one digging a hole, the other filling it up again.

A man was watching from the sidewalk and couldn't believe how hard these men were working, but couldn't understand what they were doing. Finally he had to ask them.

He said to the hole digger, "I appreciate how hard you work, but what are you doing? You dig a hole and your partner comes behind you and fills it up again!"

The hole digger replied, "Oh yeah, must look funny, but the guy who plants the trees is sick today."

White Christmas

Words and Music by Irving Berlin (11 May 1888 – 22 Sept 1989), 1940
 

The sun is shining
The grass is green
The orange and palm trees sway.
I've never seen such a day
In Beverly Hills, LA.
But it's December the 24th
And I am longing to be up North.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know.
Where the treetops glisten,
And children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow.
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write.
May your days be merry and bright.
And may all your Christmases be white.
