08/16/13 - NNHS Newsletter - For Your Love

Love has no desire but to fulfill itself. To melt and be
like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks
for another day of loving.”

Khalil Gibran 
(06 Jan 1883 - 10 Apr 1931)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

  Another great old love song, this one from 1958 - YEA!

BONUS #1 - - For Your Love - Ed Townsend

BONUS #2 - - For Your Love - Johnny Mathis

BONUS #3 - - For Your Love - The Lettermen


Ed Townsend - Edward Benjamin Townsend - (April 16, 1929 - August 13, 2003) was an African American attorney, songwriter, and producer. He was best known for performing his composition, "For Your Love," a rhythm and blues doo wop classic, and as the co-writer of "Let's Get It On" with Marvin Gaye.[1]

Although he was born in Fayetteville, Tennessee, his family soon moved to Memphis where his father was called to pastor an African Methodist Episcopal church.

The year Townsend graduated from high school, he was elected to the International American Methodist Episcopal Youth Council (IAMEYC). The honor let him travel worldwide before enrolling in college the next year at Arkansas State College.

After graduating, he taught for a year. Although he never formally practiced law, he frequently used his law training to assist other entertainers in negotiating their recording and performance contracts.

In 1951, Townsend joined the United States Marine Corps and served in Korea. After his discharge, he recorded a number of singles for various labels, none of which made the charts. Ironically, in 1958 he took his ballad, "For Your Love" to Capitol Records, hoping to interest Nat “King” Cole, but, impressed with his voice, Capitol signed him to record it himself.

Dick Clark had just started American Bandstand on television and invited Townsend to sing the very first month the show aired. He was an overnight success and the song shot up the charts, reaching #13 on the US pop chart.....

      From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 08/13/13 - "Jogging in a Jug":

Jogging in a Jug is an old folk remedy that you may or may not have heard of. The concoction is sold commercially, however, it is super easy to make yourself and much more economical! The key ingredient is raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar which has been touted as a miracle cure for thousands of years. It aids in digestion, acts as a detoxifier, relieves symptoms of the common cold, aids in weight loss, removes plaque from arteries, keeps soft muscle tissue flexible, relieves headaches, boosts immunity, lowers cholesterol, rids the body of carcinogens, relieves constipations, helps control blood sugar levels and reduces joint pain. Plus you receive the health benefits of both apples and grapes! People who regularly drink Jogging in the Jug report looking and feeling years younger!


1 quart 100% Concord Grape Juice
1 quart 100% Apple Juice
1 cup Raw Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar


Mix together and drink at least two ounces per day.

   Thank you so much, Shari! I personally never remember hearing of Jogging in a Jug until this very week! I "chanced" across the recipe on Tuesday and scribbled it down, but my source did NOT include the words, "drink at least two ounces per day" - which would seem to be rather critical!

        From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 08/15/13 -"Geriatric traffic jam - THIS IS HILARIOUS!!!!"

Geriatric traffic jam - THIS IS HILARIOUS!!!!

     Thanks, Haul Party! This is delightful... or horrible... or something! It made me laugh, anyway!

      From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 08/13/13 - "Jokes, Inspirations & 17 Words":
Good news, for a change.

A look back on The Sopranos
Beginning--Opening Theme



After years of using the same perfumes, I decided to try something different and settled on a light, citrusy fragrance. The next day I was surprised when it was my little boy, not my husband, who first noticed the change.

As he put his arms around me, he declared, "Wow, Mom, you smell just like Froot Loops!"


No one is more cautious than a first-time parent. After our daughter was big enough to ride on the back of my bicycle, I bought a special carrier with a seat belt and got her a little helmet.

The day of the first ride I put her in the seat, double- checked all the equipment, wheeled the bike to the end of the driveway, carefully looked both ways and, swinging my leg up over the crossbar, accidentally kicked her right in the chin.


A father and son went fishing one day. After a couple hours in the boat, the boy suddenly became curious about the world around him.

He asked his father, "How does this boat float?"

The father thought for a moment, then replied, "Don't rightly know, son."

The boy returned to his contemplation, then turned back to his father, "How do fish breathe underwater?"

Once again the father replied, "Don't rightly know, son."

A little later the boy asked his father, "Why is the sky blue?"

Again, the father replied. "Don't rightly know, son."

Worried he was going to annoy his father, he says, "Dad, do you mind my asking you all of these questions?"

"Of course not, son. If you don't ask questions, you'll never learn anything!"


*-- Ain't That the Truth --*

Nobody will ever win the battle of the sexes... There's too much fraternizing with the enemy.

A baby first laughs at the age of four weeks, By that time his eyes focus well enough to see you clearly.

Drive carefully, It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.

Don't worry about the world ending today... It's already tomorrow in Australia.

Character is what you are. Reputation is what people think you are.

Thousands of years ago, cats were worshiped as gods. Cats have never forgotten this.

A man who says marriage is a 50-50 proposition doesn't understand two things: 1. Women. 2. Fractions.

The facts, although interesting, are irrelevant.

The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.


Wisdom Tip-Health

Incorporate flax into your diet Adding a few servings of flaxseed into your daily diet is healthful for your heart and digestive system. Studies show that the fats found in flaxseed may be good for your cardiovascular system. Flaxseeds contain alpha-linolenic acid, an essential fatty acid that is necessary for blood pressure regulation. The seeds also contain lignans, compounds with antioxidant-like properties. Its high fiber content also keeps your digestive system healthy.

Be sure the flaxseeds are grounded so that the your body can digest it properly to ensure maximum absorption.



Quote Of Value

Each day, much more good happens than bad.
More babies born than people killed,
more people well fed than hungry,
more people housed than homeless,
more people with jobs than jobless,
more people healthy than sick,
more reasons to thank God than to curse Him.
Yet, especially when watching the "news,"
people focus almost entirely on the negative.
Let's turn that around.
Focus on the positive.
Be grateful for life's many blessings.

From - 05/13/13:

The photographer for a national magazine was assigned to get photos of a great forest fire. Smoke at the scene was too thick to get any good shots, so he frantically called his home office to hire a plane.

"It will be waiting for you at the airport!" he was assured by his editor.

 As soon as he got to the small, rural airport, sure enough, a plane was warming up near the runway. He jumped in with his equipment and yelled, "Let's go! Let's go!"

The pilot swung the plane into the wind and soon they were in the air.

"Fly over the north side of the fire," said the photographer, "and make three or four low level passes."

"Why?" asked the pilot. "Because I'm going to take pictures! I'm a photographer, and photographers take pictures!" said the photographer with great exasperation.

After a long pause the pilot said, "You mean you're not the instructor?"

For Your Love

 Written and recorded by Ed Townsend (16 Apr 1929 - 13 Aug 2003), 1958

For your love, oh, I would do anything
I would do anything, fo-o-or your love

For your kiss (ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh), oh, I would go anywhere (ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh)
I would go (ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh), anywhere, fo-o-r your kiss

More foolish I grow
With each heart beat
But we all get foolish
That's why I repeat

For your love (ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh), oh, I would do anything (ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh)
I would do anything, fo-o-or your kiss

I would do anything, fo-o-or your love (anything, anything, anything)
Fo-o-or your love
(ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh, ooh)
