BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSsiS-v6_6M - Theme From A Summer Place - Percy Faith
BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SeDGvfR0HU&NR=1 - Theme From A Summer Place - Andy Williams, 1962
"Theme from A Summer Place" is a song with lyrics by Mack Discant and music by Max Steiner, written for the 1959 film A Summer Place, which starred Sandra Dee and Troy Donahue. It was recorded for the film by Hugo Winterhalter. Originally known as the "Molly and Johnny Theme", the piece is not the main title theme of the film, but a love theme for the characters played by Dee and Donahue.
Percy Faith recorded the most popular version of the tune in the Columbia 30th Street Studio in New York City, which spent an at-the-time record of nine consecutive weeks at number one on the still-young Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in early 1960. It remains the longest-running number-one instrumental in the history of the chart. It reached number two in the UK. It hit number one in Italy under the title "Scandalo Al Sole".
Faith won a Grammy Award for Record of the Year in 1961 for his recording. This was the first movie theme and the first instrumental to win a Record of the Year Grammy.
Faith re-recorded the song twice – first, in 1969, as a female choral version, then, in 1976, as a disco version titled "Summer Place '76".
In 2008, Faith's original version was ranked at number eighteen on Billboard's top 100 songs during the first fifty years of the Hot 100 chart...

THIS DAY IN 1964:
From Thelma Baker ('65) of VA - 08/01/14, 11:00 AM - " Irving Althaus":

Deli and knew
Thought you might be interested.
Since you are having trouble sending the newsletter using gmail, have you looked into Constant Contact? You do have to pay but not sure just how much and you aren't limited
to the number you send. The rate is based on the number of contacts.
Thank you, Thelma! Mr. Althaus' Memorial Edition is one of about 38 such Memorial Editions that I finished during the nearly four months that the Newsletter announcements were not allowed to be passed along the cyber waves.
There are also about 59 scintillating Special Editions and regular issues that I completed during this same time frame (not counting the eleven previously mentioned Newsletters that I still have not yet finished).
For those of y'all who have not yet read them, they are awaiting your perusal here:
scroll down to the darker grey slot containing the following ominous
message, then start just above it and read your way up!
ON APRIL 5, 2014, THE WEBMISTRESS WAS
SUDDENLY AND UNREASONABLY DENIED THE ABILITY TO SEND EMAIL, RECEIVING INSTEAD
OF INDIVIDUAL RESPONSES BEARING THIS TEXT:
"Message rejected due to DMARC."
THE WEBMISTRESS ACCEPTED THIS NONSENSE WITH HER USUAL GOOD AND GRACIOUS HUMOR.
You raise an interesting point, Thelma. I'm afraid it's a little known fact that there is far, far more to the NNHS site (begun in 2000) than just a daily Newsletter, which were in fact, very much an afterthought, originally designed simply to call attention to all the new contact appearing on the main site itself.
If you'll check here, you'll see all that is available:
The most extensive section offered (and my personal favorite!) is Our Old Stomping Grounds. It was begun in the spring of 2003 through the vision of Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA wherein we attempted to digitally rebuild Newport News and beyond. The Althaus Deli page was created on 11/19/03, and both Samuel and Irving Althaus' Memorial Editions are cross-posted there.
Last summer, in an attempt to generate the conversation and input which we enjoyed here in previous years, I added a new page to Our Old Stomping Grounds every single day.
Not one word was ever said, so I abandoned the effort, though of course comments may be submitted for any page at any time.
The only other section which even competes for that much space is Our Teachers.
I did check into Constant Contact, and they are my third option at the moment. That's the service that Fly Lady uses for her mailings, so I know it to be reliable. It would, however, cost me $35.00 a month for the 657 subscribers currently on our list, and I'd much rather not incur any more expenses at the moment.
Thanks again, Thelma!

Actually, though, I usually agree with the Emperor Claudius on this one. Go ahead. Underestimate me!
