“Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods;
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
"And now for something completely different."
From Domi O'Brien ('64) of NH - 07/31/10 - "Bless the Barley/Lughnasadh":
Bless the barley, bless the oats, bless both the wheat and rye; bless golden loaf, and brimming cask; without them we would die. Bless the hands that cut the grain, bless bakers, millers too; bless all those who make the loaf, to nourish me and you....
At the beginning of August comes the barley-harvest in Ireland. They are cutting oats in Wales and Scotland and Cornwall about the same time, and wheat in Brittany a week or two later, and rye in the Norse lands. Bread was indeed the staff of life for our ancestors in most of western Europe and elsewhere in the world, though the grain might vary-- teff, spelt, rice, quinoa, kasha, maize etc-- grain was the source of bread and of beer-- staples throughout most of the world. In Ireland the storm-god Lugh holds the funeral-assembly (Lughnasadh) for his dead foster-mother Tailtiu, at the time of the barley-harvest. For nine days people cut the barley, feast, and hold the funeral-games...traditionally the young people 18 to 27 who have not found a suitable marriage-partner locally travel to Teltown, to look over other eligibles...there are bonfires on the hills, and dances, and and what happens in Teltown DOESN'T stay in Teltown, but travels homeward in the shape of new betrothals (handfastings) and the promise of plenty.
A Greek friend, at this same time, celebrates new grapes and olives and olive oil. All cultures look to the harvest, and the blessings of the High Ones.
May we all reap the best of what we have sown. May our harvests-- first (August), second (September), third and final (October into the start of November), bring to fruition grain and fruit and vegetables and meat, relationships and careers affirmed; blessings offered, accepted, fully received.
Thank you, Domi, blessings to you and yours, too! (Thank you also for the theme of the day)!

From Jane Monfalcone Simmons ('61) of FL - 07/31/14, 6:00 PM:
Thank you so much, Jane!
From Gloria Woolard Price (Hampton HS - '65) of FL - 07/31/14, 6:28 PM - "RE: One Summer Night":
|Carol, welcome back!
Why does the photo with One Summer Night list them as The Clovers?
Hey, Gloria! WHAZZUP?
Hmmm. That's a good question. The Clovers were around at the same time as The Danleers, but they were hardly the same group. Neither could I find any evidence that The Clovers ever recorded One Summer Night. I suppose that's a question for the fellow who posted the video on YouTube several years back, "1SweetDreamz3."
Maybe we should just chalk it up to one of Life's Great Mysteries!
From Bunny Booker ('65) of MI - 07/31/14, 9:51 PM - "50th reunion. Class of '65' ":
|Is there any information on this
Thanks, Bunny Booker
Hey, Bunny! So good to hear from you!
No, I haven't heard anything yet. I put out a few feelers and heard nothing back from there either, but I will certainly keep you posted so you can attend!
And speaking of Reunions, there's a 1964 Anchor up for sale on eBay right now for $19.64, which is a real steal for anyone needing one. I'm surprised it hasn't been snapped up before now!
From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 07/31/14 - "Unseen World. Just Incredible":
|Something you, your
children or grandchildren might enjoy!
|Unseen World. Just Incredible
We live in a world of unseen beauty, so subtle and delicate that it is imperceptible to the human eye. To bring this invisible world to light, filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg bends the boundaries of time and space with high-speed cameras, time lapses and microscopes. At TED2014, he shares highlights from his latest project, a 3D film titled "Mysteries of the Unseen World," which slows down, speeds up, and magnifies the astonishing wonders of nature.
WOWZERS! Thanks, Wayne!
