No More Mr. Nice Guy

A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person.”

- Dave Barry, Things That It Took Me 50 Years to Learn”
(b. 03 July 1947)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

    I originally chose this song several weeks ago as a reference to the fact that beginning tomorrow, I would be out of town for a week.  It acquired added meaning as it would indicate an end to all of the massive scanning I've done for the  past three weeks.  (Have I ever mentioned that I prefer scrubbing toilets to scanning images??)  But then I just thought it was funny on its own.  Of course, y'all know that I'm just kidding; I'm really SUCH a Sweetie-Pie!

APOLOGETIC NOTE TO ALL OF OUR RECENT NEWBIES AND OTHER GENTLE SOULS IN OUR MIDST: Yes, it's Sad But True; I have a warped sense of humor.....

BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0YrXjeRSoE - No More Mr. Nice Guy - Alice Cooper - no video

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAfeCViJEK0 - No More Mr. Nice Guy - Megadeth - this video is funny if quite disturbing, in a Megadeth-y sort of way...


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_More_Mr._Nice_Guy_%28song%29:

"No More Mr Nice Guy" is a single by the hard rock group Alice Cooper, taken from the 1973 album Billion Dollar Babies. The single reached #25 on the US charts and #10 on the UK charts, and helped Billion Dollar Babies to reach #1 in both the UK and the US. Alice Cooper and Michael Bruce wrote the song.

Cooper wrote the song about the reactions of his mother's Church group about Cooper's stage performances and the characters he played onstage.[1]

Heavy metal group Megadeth did a cover of the song for the 1989 film Shocker. The song was also covered by Pat Boone for the cover album In a Metal Mood: No More Mr. Nice Guy. Czech singer Aleš Brichta recorded this song with the Czech lyrics under the title "Couvnou, pane Bourák" for his second solo album "Ráno ve dveřích armády spásy" in 1996.

The song was re-recorded by Alice Cooper and will be featured in the video game Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock.[2]


REUNION ALERTS:

      From Dave Arnold ('65) of VA - 08/06/10 - "Update on locations - Class of 1965's 45-Year Reunion - Friday and Saturday, October 15 and 16, 2010 - OPEN TO ALL CLASSES!":

Carol,

Please post this updated announcement when you have a moment.

Thanks,

Dave
captarnold@vprj.net

Friday evening we’ll meet at the home of    Lynn Walker Brothers ’65 and her husband Barry (York HS - '65).  They have graciously extended an offer to open their home for the event.  Light hors d’oeuvres will be served, and we would request a $5.00 donation to assist in covering the expenses for that evening if you attend.  The change in location was decided when members of the reunion committee thought the original location might not be as suitable for conversation as originally planned.  The Brothers residence is located at 304 Dogwood Drive, Newport News.  The telephone number is 757-595-4116.  We’ll post a map providing directions.

NEWS FLASH:

     From Me ('65) of IL - 08/06/10 - "Hang in there...":

   If all goes well (that is, according to Plan "A"), I will be going to Southeast Missouri to attend back-to-back family reunions (Lewis and Mason families - good old Virginia names, n'est pas?) from Sunday, August 8 to Sunday, August 15.  Not only will I not be able to create any Newsletters, I will not have internet access at all, so as one of our favorite old teachers was fond of saying, "Let's keep it down to a dull roar." 

   Thanks!


TODAY IN WWII:

August 07, 1940 - Alsace Lorraine was annexed by the Third Reich.

August 07, 1942 - The Battle of Guadalcanal began – United States Marines initiated the first American offensive in the Pacific during World War II with landings on Guadalcanal and Tulagi in the Solomon Islands.


TODAY IN 1965:

Saturday, August 07, 1965 - The infamous first party between Ken Kesey's Merry Pranksters and motorcycle gang the Hells Angels took place at Kesey's estate in La Honda, California introducing psychedelics to the gang world and forever linking the hippie movement to the Hell's Angels.


    From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 08/06/10 - " John Llewellyn - Nomination for Famous Marine page.":

Hi, Carol:

  Please find a photo of then Sergeant John Llewellyn USMC circa 1957 when he was serving in the 97th Rifle Company in Newport News, VA. He had returned from the Korean War with two rows of combat ribbons, and began college, and was later commissioned in the USMC. He completed his service to the Corps as a Captain, when his civilian employer NASA required their employees to leave the various reserve programs during the Vietnam War.

John retired from NASA. He served in various capacities at the Space Center in Houston and Cape Canaveral and when the space program was in its infancy, John was stationed on the Canary Islands manning a relay station.

He is a true warrior, and recently suffered a stroke, and was transported from San Antonio, TX by helicopter to a hospital in Austin, TX. His condition was grave, and my friend 
    Nancy Keesee Barr ('57 - of TX) attended to him as only a trained Chaplain can do in such circumstances. He is doing very well and walking and has been transferred back to San Antonio.
 
 
  
The small world story is this, John was living in Yorktown and his father paid tuition for him to attend NNHS.

His conduct was less than stellar and
 Mr. Keesee, Assistant Principal, had the duty of expelling John.

John's father then placed him in military school, but he quit and joined the Marines and was shipped to Korea for combat duty.

Now, after all these years a Keesee has ministered to this Marine Warrior. A time for healing.

Hope you will consider him for your Famous Marine page on the website.

TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan (57) of FL

   WOWZERONI! What a great story, Joe! I've added him to our listing of Famous Marines with great pleasure:

     http://www.nnhs65.com/famous-marines.html

         http://www.nnhs65.com/famous-marines-G-L.html

   As an added small world twist, I myself have a Llewellyn line (my 7th great-grandmother was Martha Llewellyn, who died in Fleet's Bay, Northumberland Co., VA after 20 Dec 1677 - wife of Robert Jones, Sr.), so I'm claiming John as my cousin.


From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) - 08/05/10 - "Vote for Grace (REPEATED)":

  This is my daughter Laura's dog in a contest to be on the cover of a bag of dog food.

Vote every day for Grace. Thanks.

   Oh, Laura is your daughter, Norris! Well, that makes it all the more important! When I tried to vote for Grace again today, I noticed the site was trying to pull a switcheroo on me. It tried to persuade me to vote for the wrong Grace!  OH, NO!

 
 
  

   That's why I've included the link to all the candidates named Grace, along with the image of The Real Grace, lest there be any confusion. As y'all can see, she's a Weimaraner from Richmond.

http://www.adogslife.net/photo_gallery.php?pg=&limit=40&sort=tnid&type=tnap&field=dog_name&keyword=grace#14296

   Vote early, and vote often - or at least cast your allotted daily vote!

FINALLY:

From ArcaMax
Jokes - 08/06/10:
 

Freezer Meals

I have changed my system for labeling homemade freezer meals. I used to carefully note in large clear letters, "Meatloaf" or "Pot Roast" or "Steak and Vegetables or "Chicken and Dumplings" or "Beef Pot Pie."

However, I used to get frustrated when I asked my husband what he wanted for dinner because he never asked for any of those things. So, I decided to stock the freezer with what he really likes.

If you look in my freezer now you'll see a whole new set of labels. You'll find dinners with neat little tags that say: "Whatever," "Anything," "I Don't Know," "I Don't Care," "Something Good," or "Food." My frustration is now reduced because no matter what my husband replies when I ask him what he wants for dinner, I know that it is there waiting.

No More Mr. Nice Guy

 Written and recorded by Alice Cooper (born Vincent Damon Furnier on 04 Feb 1948), 1973

Recorded by Megadeth, 1989


I used to be such a sweet, sweet thing
Till they got a hold of me
I opened doors for little old ladies
I helped the blind to see
I got no friends 'cause they read the papers
They can't be seen with me
And I'm gettin' real shot down
And I'm feelin' mean

No more Mister Nice Guy
No more Mister Clean
No more Mister Nice Guy
They say he's sick, he's obscene

I got no friends 'cause they read the papers
They can't be seen with me
And I'm feelin' real shot down
And I'm gettin' mean

No more Mister Nice Guy
No more Mister Clean
No more Mister Nice Guy
They say he's sick, he's obscene

My dog bit me on the leg today
My cat clawed my eye
Mom's been thrown out of the social circles
And dad has to hide
I went to church incognito
When everybody rose the Reverend Smithy
He recognized me and punched me in the nose

He said, no more Mister Nice Guy
No more Mister Clean
No more Mister Nice Guy
He said you're sick, you're obscene
