09/06/14 - NNHS Newsletter - Sugar Sugar

“Affluence separates people. Poverty knits 'em together.
You got some sugar and I don't; I borrow some of yours.
Next month you might not have any flour; well,
I'll give you some of mine.”

Ray Charles
(23 Sept 1930 - 10 June 2004)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

  We repeat this theme song every year on this day in honor of Sarah Sugah's birthday!

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JywK_5bT8z0 - Sugar Sugar - The Archies, 1969


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sugar,_Sugar:

"Sugar, Sugar" is a pop song written by Jeff Barry and Andy Kim. It was a four-week 1969 number-one hit single by fictional characters The Archies. Produced by Jeff Barry, the song was originally released on the album Everything's Archie. The album is the product of a group of studio musicians managed by Don Kirshner. Ron Dante's lead vocals were accompanied by those of Toni Wine (who sang the line "I'm gonna make your life so sweet"), and Andy Kim. Together they provided the voices of the Archies using multitracking.

When the song was initially released, Kirshner had promotion men play it for radio station execs without telling them the name of the group (due to the somewhat disappointing chart performance of the Archies' previous single, "Bang-Shang-a-Lang," which went to #22 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts). Only after most of the DJs liked the song were they told that it was performed by a cartoon group. The Archies’ hit wound up as one of the biggest (and most unexpected) #1 hits of the year, one of the biggest bubblegum hits of all time, both in America and in Great Britain, thanks partly to association with the hit CBS-TV Saturday morning cartoon series.

The Archies' "Sugar, Sugar" was the 1969 number-one single of the year...

  From Ruth Ann Reece Horace ('67) of FL - 09/05/14 - "Best Blonde Joke Ever":

After becoming very frustrated with the attitude of one of the shoe store shop owners, the young blonde declared, 'Well, then, maybe I'll just go out and catch my own alligator, and get a pair of alligator shoes for free!'

The store owner replied with a sly smile, 'Well, little lady, why don't you go give it a try?'

The blonde headed off to the swamp, determined to catch an alligator.

Later in the day, the store owner was driving home, and spotted the young woman standing waist deep in the murky water, shotgun in hand. He saw a huge 14-foot gator swimming rapidly toward her. With lightning reflexes, the blonde took aim, shot the creature, and hauled it up onto the slippery bank. Nearby were 7 more dead gators all lying belly up. He watched in amazement as the blonde struggled with the huge gator. Then, rolling her eyes, she screamed in frustration ....

"DARN IT !! THIS ONE'S BAREFOOT, TOO!"

     Thanks, Ruthie!
