  HURRICANE DORIAN UPDATE!

The 5 a.m. advisory is in and Hurricane Dorian continues to trek to the northwest, moving away from Puerto Rico and now in the open and very warm Atlantic. The direction will remain unchanged for a couple of days but it will be slowly increasing in intensity. After that, it should turn more to the west-northwest toward Florida as a blocking high pressure is forecast to move westward to keep it from heading up the coast. The strength of the high will determine the ultimate landfall point ,but my best guess right now is just below Cape Canaveral near Palm Bay. Damage on the coast will be major since it is expected to cross the shore as a Category 3 with an outside possibility of Category 4. It is expected then to move in a west northwest direction across the state and entering the Gulf of Mexico just north of Tampa near Spring Hill. This, of course, is subject to change. Most of the trek across the state will be at the Category 1 level, but gusts could very well be over 100 miles per hour so lots of trees will topple since the land is soggy form lots of rain. I'll update again when the 5 p.m. advisory comes out. Have a good day and we thank you for all the prayers for Florida.

   YOWZERONI! Thank you, Jimmy!

 From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 08/28/19, 10:19 PM - "Things to Think About":

 
Things to think about:

What if my dog only brings back the ball because he thinks I like throwing it?

If poison is past its expiration date, is it more poisonous or is it no longer poisonous?

Which letter is silent in the word “Scent,” the S or the C?

Do twins ever realize that one of them is unplanned?

Why is the letter w, in English, called double u? Shouldn’t it be called double v?

Maybe oxygen is slowly killing you and it just takes 75-100 years to fully work.

Every time you clean something, you just make something else dirty.

The word “swims” upside-down is still “swims”.

Intentionally losing a game of rock, paper, scissors is just as hard as trying to win.

100 years ago everyone owned a horse and only the rich had cars. Today everyone has a car and only the rich own horses.

Your future self is watching you right now through memories.

If you replace “W” with ”T” in “What”, ”Where”, and “When”, you get the answer to each of them.

Many animals probably need glasses, but nobody knows it.

If you rip a hole in a net, there are actually fewer holes in it than there were before.

      Thanks, Billy!

Dream a Little Dream of Me

 Music by Fabian Andre (08 Jan 1910 – 30 Mar 1960) and Wilbur Schwandt [1] (28 June 1904 – 23 July 1998)

Lyrics by Gus Kahn (06 Nov 1886 – 08 Oct 1941), 1931
 

Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper, "I love you"
Birds singin’ in the sycamore trees
Dream a little dream of me

Say nighty-night and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me you’ll miss me
While I’m alone and blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me

Stars fading but I linger on dear
Still craving your kiss
I’m longin’ to linger till dawn dear
Just saying this

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me

(instrumental break)

Stars shining up above you
Night breezes seem to whisper "i love you"
Birds singin’ in the sycamore trees
Dream a little dream of me

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me

Yes, dream a little dream of me
