|"All the Things You Are" is a song composed by
Jerome Kern, with lyrics written by
Oscar Hammerstein II.
It was written for the musical Very Warm for May (1939), where it was introduced by Hiram Sherman, Frances Mercer, Hollace Shaw, and Ralph Stuart. It was later featured in the film Broadway Rhythm (1944), and was performed during the opening credits and as a recurring theme for the romantic comedy A Letter for Evie (1945). It was used in the 2005 film Mrs. Henderson Presents starring Judi Dench.
The song ranked in the top five of the Record Buying Guide of Billboard, a pre-retail listing which surveyed primarily the jukebox industry. Recordings by Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, and Frankie Masters propelled the song during its initial popularity...

YESTERDAY IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES:

Wednesday, July 31, 1861
MISSOURI MAKES MOMENTOUS MOVE
Missouri, as both a border state and a Western one, could have easily gone either way as a Confederate or Union ally. Legally elected Gov. Claiborne Jackson had endeavored to speed up the process by simply declaring the state for secession. Thanks to Gen. Nathaniel Lyon and Francis Blair Jr., Jackson was no longer governor but a refugee with Confederate forces in Arkansas. A new convention was hastily held and Hamilton R. Gamble was inaugurated as his replacement. He made a patriotic speech.
Thursday, July 31, 1862
POPE’S POLICY PROVOKES PETULANCE
Negotiations had been underway for some time to work out a formal agreement, or cartel, for the exchange of prisoners. Jefferson Davis wrote to Robert E. Lee that the agreement was in place: with one exception. Gen. John “One pinch of owl dung” Pope had recently issued orders punishing Virginia citizens for depredations committed by Confederate soldiers on his Army of Virginia, and threatening to shoot any civilians caught crossing the lines. Davis told Lee that any prisoners taken from Pope’s forces were to be treated as common criminals, not prisoners of war. Lee used this only rarely.
Friday, July 31, 1863
RAIDER RACES REACHING REPAIRS
The commerce raiders of the Confederacy, although capturing or sinking relatively little of the commerce directed at Northern ports, had one curious effect: by driving insurance rates so high that they caused owners to re-register their vessels under the flags of other countries, they reduced United States flag shipping to levels that were never restored to this day. One of the fiercest, CSS Florida, was now two days out of Bermuda on course for the repair yards of Brest, France. Her skipper, Commander Maffitt, was ill and had requested that a replacement be sent over.
Sunday, July 31, 1864
CONFEDERATE CAVALRY CONFLAGRATES CHAMBERSBURG
Gen. Jubal Early’s Confederate cavalry had been on an extended raid into the North, attempting to force Lincoln to pull forces away from Grant’s siege of Petersburg, Va. He had gone to the gates of Washington and been driven off. He had gone as far as Chambersburg in Pennsylvania, demanded a ransom, and when it was not paid, burned a good part of the city. Today he was suddenly under attack by Gen. Averel’s Federal cavalry and headed for Cumberland, Md.

From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 07/30/11 and 07/31/11 - "Web Site WGH Page":
The sound feature is broken.
YOWZERS! Let's have a look..... Hmmm. I noticed one thing in the html code that would explain why it no longer worked, but how it ever worked with that condition I've no idea. I changed the code and uploaded it, and it looks as though I may have fixed it. I don't know for certain, as my computer said something like, "Additional plug-ins required - press here." When I did, it said, "Installation failed." (Thanks a lot, silly 'puter! )
Thanks for telling me, David - hope it works now!
Yes, it is fixed.
There are other pages where the music does not work … and some that were not migrated from “freehost”. Didn’t want to deluge you with a list.
YOWZERONI!!! Well, go ahead and start a list and maybe I can fix two or three a day..... Thanks!
The site is getting a ton of exposure on Face Book. I joined a Hampton Nostalgia group and have uploaded a ton on images and links to the site. That group grew to 9000 members in 24 hours
Then I started a similar NN group about noon. Same deal with images and links. It has grown to 600 members in that time; will probably hit several thousand before it burns out. Keep an eye on your hit counter to see if you detect a surge.
WOWZERONI!!! 'Deed I do - BIG spike in numbers! Thanks for the boost, Captain!
From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX - 07/30/11 - "These Old Photos are Priceless":
From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 07/30/11 - "His name was Bubba":
His name was Bubba, he was from Mississippi ..... and he needed a loan, so....... he walked into a bank in New York City and asked for the loan officer. He told the loan officer that he was going to Paris for an international redneck festival for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000 and that he was not a depositor of the bank. The bank officer told him that the bank would need some form of security for the loan, so the Redneck handed over the keys to a new Ferrari. The car was parked on the street in front of the bank. The Redneck produced the title and everything checked out. The loan officer agreed to hold the car as collateral for the loan and apologized for having to charge 12% interest.
Keep an eye on those southern boys!
Good work is not Cheap
Cheap work is not Good!

|Kinda cute if it

WILD SAD GIGGLES! Thanks, Dools - and Happy Birthday!
www.ajokeaday.com - 07/31/11:
A customer sent an order to a distributor for a large amount of goods totaling a great deal of money. The distributor noticed that the previous bill hadn’t been paid, so he asked his collections manager to leave a voice-mail for them saying, “We can’t ship your new order until you pay for the last one.”
The next day the collections manager received a collect phone call,
“Please cancel the order. We can’t wait that long.”

All the Things You Are
Words byOscar Hammerstein II (12 July 1895 – 23 Aug 1960)
Music by Jerome Kern (27 Jan 1885 – 11 Nov 1945)
Very Warm for May, 1939
Time and again I’ve longed for adventure,
Something to make my heart beat the faster.
What did I long for? I never really knew.
Finding your love I’ve found my adventure,
Touching your hand, my heart beats the faster,
All that I want in all of this world is you.
You are the promised kiss of springtime
That makes the lonely winter seem long.
You are the breathless hush of evening
That trembles on the brink of a lovely song.
You are the angel glow that lights a star,
The dearest things I know are what you are.
Some day my happy arms will hold you,
And some day I’ll know that moment divine,
When all the things you are, are mine!
