From Jim Moore ('64) of VA to Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 09/22/14:
... On another topic, I keep trying the nnhs65 site but all that comes up is a solid blue screen bordered by an orange frame. What happened to the site? Is there a new web site? Please let me know...
From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA to Me ('65) of NC - 09/28/14 - "Web Site":
I experience this, as well. In my case, I see the correct screen momentarily, then it disappears, leaving the blue background and orange border. It takes one or more reloads to get the screen to remain in place. All else works fine.
Has anyone else mentioned this?
Hmm. No one has mentioned this before at all, so I thought I was the only one experiencing it.Only Google Chrome lets me capture obituaries or watch videos (or anything else involving Flash); otherwise I wouldn't bother to open it.
It is in fact a browser issue.
With Mozilla Firefox the page appears normal, but will not reveal the Page Hits.
the page loads nicely, shows the Page Hits, but reveals the
"skeletons" of the page-making process. I only use Opera on rare
occasions, simply because it doesn't really solve very much for
This problem is caused by the fact that Front Page, which I have used in building the site and maintaining the site since 2000, no longer is supported by Google Chrome; it is considered obsolete. It's also the reason I can no longer hear ANY midi files playing - ever.
Thank you, David! I hope this might be of some help - or at least explanation.
From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 09/28/14 - "Recently Found WW II Photos":
|Recently Found WW II Photos

WOWZERS! Thanks, Billy - these images are fabulous!
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 09/27/14 -"Very good thrifty tips, a brain teaser & 2 inspirations":
Pendulum Wave in a N.C. Forest--so pretty.
Extremely windy day in Norway...
The Black Crowes-Remedy
Donovan-Season Of The Witch--Always reminds me of Fall nights, Halloween, pumpkins and such.
As I was gathering my
trash, there was a rush to the counter. 3 people from 3 different
tables, including one of the parents from the unruly kid's table all
headed to the counter. I sat back down to watch. One by one, they all
brought him something over; first an order of fries, then a small salad,
and then a bowl of chili. All 3 saying the same thing I had said, I have
an extra item, would you like it. He never said a word; he just reached
out to take it and nodded yes to each. I watched for a minute longer as
he arranged his banquet; he bowed his head for a moment and then
continued on with his feast. I watched the others begin to leave the
restaurant. They were walking very tall, big smiles, and feeling pretty
good. They got that feeling "For only a Dollar".

BONUS AUTUMN RECIPES:
From www.ajokeaday.com - 09/28/14:
|There was a
student who was desirous of taking admission for a study course.
He was smart enough to get through the written test, a GD and was to appear for the personal interview. Later, as the interview progressed, the interviewer found this boy to be bright as he could answer all the questions correctly. The interviewer got impatient and decided to corner the boy.
"Tell me your choice;" said he to the boy, "What's your choice: I shall either ask you ten easy questions or ONE real difficult. Think well before you make up your mind."
The boy thought for a while and said, "My choice is ONE real difficult question."
"Well, good luck to you, you have made your own choice!" said the man on the opposite side. "Tell me: What comes first, Day or Night?"
The boy was jolted first but he waited for a while and said, "It's the DAY, sir."
"How???????" the interviewer was smiling ("At last, I have you!" he said to himself.)
"Sorry, sir, you promised me that you would not ask me a SECOND difficult question!"
Admission for the course was thus secured.

When an early autumn walks the land and chills the breeze
and touches with her hand the summer trees,
perhaps you'll understand what memories I own.
There's a dance pavilion in the rain all shuttered down,
a winding country lane all russet brown,
a frosty window pane shows me a town grown lonely.
That spring of ours that started so April-hearted,
seemed made for just a boy and girl.
I never dreamed, did you, any fall would come in view
so early, early.
Darling if you care, please, let me know,
I'll meet you anywhere, I miss you so.
Let's never have to share another early autumn.
