will just help other people get what they want.”

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   This 1965 Beatles classic seems appropriate for today's Newsletter.

BONUS - Help! - The Beatles


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help!_%28song%29:

"Help!" is a song by The Beatles that served as the title song for both the 1965 film and its soundtrack album. It was also released as a single, and was number one for three weeks in both the United States and the United Kingdom. "Help!" was written primarily by John Lennon, but credited (as were all Beatles songs written by either person) to Lennon/McCartney. Paul McCartney reports that he had a hand in writing the song as well, being called in "to complete it" in a two-hour joint writing session on 4 April 1965 at Lennon's house in Weybridge.[4] He later said that the title was "out of desperation".[5] In 2004, "Help!" was ranked number 29 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest songs of all time.

The documentary series The Beatles Anthology revealed that Lennon wrote the lyrics of the song to express his stress after the Beatles' quick rise to success. "I was fat and depressed and I was crying out for 'Help'," Lennon told Playboy.[6] Writer Ian MacDonald describes the song as the "first crack in the protective shell" Lennon had built around his fragile emotions during the Beatles' rise to fame, and an important milestone in his songwriting style.

  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 09/21/20, 4:21 and 5:26 AM:

  Here's my special wish for all American citizens who labor cheerfully in far away places where conditions can be difficult and sometimes fear might overtake them. One of them is the brave teacher who is tagged as a means of encouragement and support as they all need in what they do. It is sometimes a lonely and dangerous journey they take not for themselves, but to help others. Oh, Lord, be with them, comfort them and when their journey is done, return them safe and sound to loved ones back here in our wonderful USA. They include brave military forces, State Department employees, private citizens working for the common good, and missionaries, Christian teachers and other religious folk who are trying to instill belief in our Lord and Savior where it is so desperately needed. And the work they do is truly a blessing to all of us back here at home since the good they do brings benefit to all of us if we end up with a world at peace. God bless them and keep them safe.

      Thank you, Jimmy!

BONUS HELP! CROCHET PATTERN:
Help Me Make an Intricate, Collaborative Square - "Block 37 of the Block a Week CAL (hosted by Kimberly Slifer) is very special.  This square is a collaboration between one of our CAL participants, Virginia Burrow, and my little old self.  Based on my King Protea Mandala, this square is striking and surprisingly easy (once you get past the front post trebles).When apportioning credit, I feel it necessary to tell you that Virginia did the designing and I did the grunt-work. Why am I telling you that? Because I LOVE this square and when you are making it, I want you to remember that it was born in Virginia’s pretty head.I hope you really enjoy this week’s square! "


BONUS HELP! RECIPES:

Southern Recipes Inspired by The Help - "Classic Southern recipes are featured in The Help, both the movie and the novel, and are as much a part of the action as Aibileen, Minny, Skeeter, and Hilly. Here are a few of the featured foods..."

Help!

Written primarily by John Lennon (09 Oct 1940 - 08 Dec 1980),
but credited (as were all Beatles songs written by either person) to
Lennon/McCartney
, 1965

Recorded by The Beatles, 1965


Help, I need somebody,
Help, not just anybody,
Help, you know I need someone, help.

When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way.
But now these days are gone, I'm not so self assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me.

And now my life has changed in oh so many ways,
My independence seems to vanish in the haze.
But every now and then I feel so insecure,
I know that I just need you like I've never done before.

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me.

When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way.
But now these days are gone, I'm not so self assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors.

Help me if you can, I'm feeling down
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won't you please, please help me, help me, help me, oh.
