Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
There are some cute little bunny rabbits that often play in our front yard here in Fayetteville. They're not white, but.....

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HmJQyS8QVw - White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane with Disney movie clip
|"White Rabbit" is a
rock song from
Jefferson Airplane's 1967 album
Surrealistic Pillow. It was released as a single and became
the band's second top ten success, peaking at #8
Billboard Hot 100. The song was ranked #483 on
Rolling Stone's list of the
500 Greatest Songs of All Time,
Rate Your Music's Top Singles of All Time and appears on
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.
“White Rabbit” was written by
Grace Slick while she was still with
The Great Society. When that band broke up in 1966, Slick was
invited to join
Jefferson Airplane to replace their departed female singer
Signe Toly Anderson, who left the band with the birth of her
child. The first album Slick recorded with Jefferson Airplane was
Surrealistic Pillow, and Slick provided two songs from her
previous group: her own “White Rabbit” and “Somebody to Love”,
written by Darby Slick and recorded under the title "Someone to
Love" by The Great Society. Both songs became breakout successes for
Jefferson Airplane and have since been associated with that band...

CABINET CONTEMPLATES CONFEDERATE CONFOUNDMENT
There was a special meeting of Abraham Lincoln’s cabinet in Washington DC today. Besides the cabinet members themselves, those in attendance included Gen. Irvin McDowell, who proposed to attack the Army of Northern Virginia at Manassas, and Gen. Winfield Scott, whose notion was to send an expedition to immediately retake the Mississippi River. McDowell won.

BOTHERSOME BELLE BOYD BAGGED
Near Warrenton, Va., today a woman was arrested. Unusual as that was during the Civil War, even more odd was the charge: espionage. While a semi-sanctioned system of mail exchange existed throughout the war by officials under a flag of truce, this lady was running a considerably less official mail exchange service, directed at supplying Stonewall Jackson with information on Union troop movements. Belle Boyd was confined in Old Capitol Prison for a time.

VICTORIA VOWS VIRTUAL VERACITY
One of the earliest expectations of the Confederate government had been diplomatic recognition from Europe, particularly Great Britain. As the main foreign consumer of Southern cotton, the logic seemed inescapable. It had escaped Queen Victoria’s government, though, which had declared neutrality in the dispute. Today, in yet another blow to the beleaguered Rebellion, Victoria renewed the statement, saying there was ‘no reason to depart from the strict neutrality which Her Majesty has observed from the beginning.”

POTOMAC PROBING PERTURBS PENNSYLVANIANS
First it was Antietam. The next year it was Gettysburg. The people of southern Maryland and Pennsylvania were learning to get very nervous as midsummer approached. Their misgivings were well-founded as Jubal Early and company crossed the Potomac today, continuing the excursion which had briefly threatened the very gates of Washington itself. Union cavalry was pursuing, and there was little opportunity for Early to commit much outrage. Folks were fearful nonetheless and those who could afford to, sought to be elsewhere for awhile.

From Jack Nelson ('54) of Northern VA - 07/28/11 - "NNHS Class of '54 - Health Trends":
|As we mature in age,
we come to realize that many of the items we consumed as a child,
teenager and young adult, have come back to haunt us. We believed
that everything that was approved by the FDA and placed on our
grocery store shelves was good for us. Many still do today. However,
this is not the case. With the rise in diseases including cancer and
heart disease, something is amiss. The addition of chemicals to our
food and beverage supply seems to be the culprit. The U.S. is ranked
43rd in health and Japan is #1. Maybe we are doing something wrong,
do you think? The answer is to become better educated on what
contributes to good and bad health. The product addressed in the
attached newsletter this month is one that most of us consumed
throughout most of our life, and many still do. We eliminated this
item from our diet 8 years ago and feel better than when we were 30.
However, this is not the only change that has drastically improved
our health. Other changes will be addressed in future additions of
BE HEALTHY, WEALTHY & WISE!

Diet soda: Contains Aspartame - world's

acidic! Cancer thrives on acid. To neutralize one glass of cola with
a pH of 2.5 (that of battery acid),
scientist for one of the major cola manufacturing companies refused
to let his family drink it.

Coke manufacturers have announced that they are pulling their soft drink machines from all school systems - 2010 news release.
The state of North Carolina passed a law to have all soft drink machines removed from their school systems by the end of 2010.
drinks are the fourth worst thing to consume. They are rated behind
sugar, white flour and trans-fats.
I guessed correctly!
Whether it's the sweetener (Aspartame OR Splenda)
or the carbonated water, I don't know. I do know that when I avoid
soda altogether, I feel remarkably better.
Thanks so much, Jack!
From Dimples Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC - 07/29/11 - "This is serious, PLEASE READ!":
Retired Navy pilot friend, almost 90, sent this to me and ask me to get it to as many people as possible. I realize it may be too late, but I think it needs to be printed anyway. Hope others will agree !
PLEASE read and forward to all your e-mail contacts, and post on your Face-book page if you have one... This is getting serious.
Dear Mr. President,
I heard you say you will not guarantee Social Security checks if the debt ceiling isn't raised.
Why is it the scare always has to do with SS, Medicare, & our Soldiers pay?
Why not stop your pay, your staff, or Congress and the Senate to save more money for our country?
Why use Seniors, Soldiers, and our Needy as examples?
Take the money from those who take no risks and reap the benefits!! Repost if you agree.
Instead of threatening to withhold Social Security, VA and disability payments of people who really need the money,
let's hold the paychecks of all house and senate members, then see how fast they resolve the debt ceiling crisis !!!!!
If you agree repost this & keep it going across the whole USA.
Thank you, Dimples! I spent 30 or 40 minutes trying to locate more information on this subject to no avail. Perhaps some of y'all will know more about this...
From Jack Nelson ('54) of Northern VA - 07/29/11 - "A HOLLYWOOD WE WILL NEVER SEE AGAIN":
A HOLLYWOOD WE WILL NEVER SEE AGAIN!
After you have viewed the video, read the remarks under it. This event took place a long time ago (about 1974) but it sure is fun looking at it...over and over, again. It brought back a flood of memories.
For all us old folks and those who are younger: here are the people who made our lives brighter and happier in the long, long ago of our youth.
"Last Night When We Were Young"
just sat here gawking! Thanks so much for
sharing this with us, Jack - what a delight!
From My Friend, Emily of NC - 07/29/11 - "Shampoo- funny":
|Just too cute not to
send to you. Enjoy!
PS: I am now taking my shower with Dawn. Will let you know Sunday if it works. HaHa
IT! It's my
Aussie Volumizing Shampoo coating me with blubber - of course! I
should have known!
Thanks, Miss Emily!

Words and Music by Grace Slick (b. 30 Oct 1939)
pill makes you larger
and one pill makes you small
and the ones that mother gives
you don't do anything at all -
go ask Alice, when she was just small.
And if you go chasing rabbits
and you know you're gonna fall
tell 'em a hookah
smoking caterpiller has given you the call
for Alice, when she was ten feet tall.
While men on the chessboard
get up and tell you where you go
and you've just had some kind of mushroom
and your mind is moving on - go ask Alice - I think she'll know.
When logic and proportion
have fallen - sloppy dead
and the white knight is talking backwards
and the Red Queen says
"Off with her head," remember what the Dormouse said:
"Feed your head. Feed your head."
