Happy Rosh Hashanah!
“Shana Tova - May you be inscribed in the Book of Life!”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
The Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, begins this evening at sunset, ushering in the High Holidays (Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot).
This Holiday celebration repeats around this same time every year. No doubt most of us are probably not personally observing this holiday, but we don't concern ourselves with such trifling details such as that here. We try to celebrate everything together as the one big happy family that we are. So we extend all our best wishes for all good things for all our friends and family!
Happy Rosh Hashanah!

Hannah Emily Upp was last seen wearing a black shirt and brown pants around 7:45 a.m. on Tuesday near Kemp Mill Road and Glenallan Avenue. Police and family members are concerned because of her mental well being. She required medical care when she was located last time, police said.
YOWZERONI-RINI! Thanks for sending this, Jimmy! I certainly hope that this mystery is unraveled soon!
From Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 09/03/13, 12:11 PM - " Nowell Zoumplis' ('66) Death":
I would have sent you the news about Nowell; however, I see that Sandi Bateman Chestnut ( '65 - of VA) had already done so....She is so good! I work part time at Peninsula Funeral Home and understand that the family decided to not have the obituary in the paper. I know so many would want to know this and I am thankful for your website. Your website and word of mouth are the only ways the news is known.....except, I understand it was mentioned at his church yesterday.
I am printing this newsletter for the family to see and they will see your website address. I plan to attend the funeral today, at 02:00 p.m. The Zoumplis family lived on our street, Sycamore Avenue.....in the block below us.....they moved the latter years to Poplar Avenue to a brand new house. You could see that house from ours as there was nothing between us (hardly) and their house except swamp land......we lived on a hill at the end of Sycamore Avenue (137).......they were such good days! I knew Nowell's brother Jerry ('61) and his parents and his grandmother, Mrs. Murphy.....I worked at Manning's Grocery Store, corner of Buxton and 19th Street, and Mrs. Murphy always came in and purchased two cartons of Pepsi Colas......She really loved Pepsi Cola. These are all good people and I know they will miss Nowell......I would see him on occasion at an Estate Sale or the like.
Carol, I am sorry I have not emailed you lately.....Hope you had a wonderful birthday on August 30. Happy belated birthday.
Thank you for so much you do......You are a dear.
Take care, Fred Mays, '60.
Thank you so much for everything, Fred! I really appreciate you furnishing me with all the details!
From Cheryl Mays Howard ('66) of VA - 09/03/13, 1:41 PM - " Nowell Zoumplis - Class of 1966 (18 Dec 1947 - 31 Aug 2013)":
|We will always the
sweet memories and people we grew up with. Rest in peace, Nowell.
Thank you, Cheryl! I didn't meet Nowell until high school, but you knew him from birth, I suppose. You have my deepest sympathies in the loss of your old friend.
From Sandi Bateman Chestnut ('65) of VA - 09/03/13, 2:11 PM:
|... On a much happier note, a
belated Happy Birthday to
you! I thought about you last week, but was keeping two of my grandsons
all week, and just forgot to send you best wishes. Hope you had a
wonderful day and weekend.
Thank you so much, Sandi! My birthday and weekend were both quite nice!
From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 09/03/13 - "Pumpkin Bread with Pumpkin Butter Cream":
Pumpkin Bread with Pumpkin Butter
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
2 large eggs
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar (You can substituted light brown sugar)
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons freshly grated orange zest (I omitted this)
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest (I left this out, too)
1/2 cup canola oil
1 1/4 cups canned pure pumpkin puree
1/2 cup chopped, toasted pecans or walnuts, optional (I didn’t add the nuts to the batter, but sprinkled them on top of the frosted loaf instead)
Position your oven rack in the middle of the oven, and preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a 9 x 5″ loaf pan; set
Combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and allspice in a medium bowl and whisk until thoroughly combined; set aside.
In another bowl, or bowl of an electric mixer, beat eggs on medium-high speed for two minutes or until lightened in color. Add the brown sugar, mixing for about 2 minutes, then the granulated sugar, mixing for about 1 minute. Add the orange and lemon zests, if using, and beat for another minute. Scrape down the bowl as needed.
Drizzle in the canola oil with beater on medium-low. Reduce speed to low and add the pumpkin puree. Mix until thoroughly combined. Add the dry ingredients in two additions and blend for 10-15 seconds just until incorporated. Fold in the pecans using a rubber spatula.Spoon the batter into your prepared loaf pan and bake for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool loaf in pan for 10 to 15 minutes, then remove and cool completely on a wire rack.
If you’re going to frost the loaf, you can make the frosting while the loaf is cooling…
PUMPKIN BUTTER CREAM FROSTING
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened
2 Tablespoons canned pure pumpkin puree
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons half & half or milk
1/4 to 1/3 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, optional, for sprinkling on top
Cream the butter, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, and vanilla, blending well. Add powdered sugar a cup at a time, blending well after each addition. Add half & half or milk and blend well. NOTE: This makes a very thick butter cream frosting. If you want a thinner, creamier frosting, add more half & half or milk until you get the desired consistency.
After frosting the cooled pumpkin loaf, sprinkle with chopped pecans or walnuts if desired.
|Thanks, Susan! This looks yummy - even though it's almost as long as that red velvet cheesecake recipe your daughter Angela sent me!|
