10/13/13 - NNHS Newsletter - 238th Birthday of the United States Navy

A powerful Navy we have always regarded as our proper and natural
means of defense; and it has always been of defense that we have
thought, never of aggression or of conquest. But who shall tell us now
what sort of Navy to build? We shall take leave to be strong upon the seas,
in the future as in the past; and there will be no thought of offense
or provocation in that. Our ships are our natural bulwarks.”

- President Woodrow Wilson, 08 Dec 1914, An Annual Message to Congress
(28 Dec 1856 - 03 Feb 1924)

10 Dec 1996 - Northern Puerto Rican Operations Area: USS JOHN F. KENNEDY (CV 67) 27 Aug 2004 - Naval Station, Norfolk, VA: A UH-3H Sea King helicopter flies over USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), USS George Washington (CVN 73), and USS Enterprise (CVN 65).

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   We try to celebrate this day together every year.  Sometimes we do, and sometimes we don't. 

   Hug a sailor today.  Or salute one.  Well, okay, just thank one for their services rendered.  I still would personally prefer the hugging option.

From My Friend, Angela, of NC - 10/10/13 - "Applesauce Bread":

This is so simple to make and smelled so delicious as it baked! You probably have all the ingredients already ~ Check it out!
 
  Ingredients

1/2 cup softened butter
1 large egg
1 1/2 t. baking soda
3/4 t. nutmeg
1 cup sugar
1-1/2 cups of flour
1 t. ground cinnamon
1/2 t. kosher salt
1-1/2 cups of applesauce
1 t. pure vanilla extract
 
 
 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, first blend together the butter, egg, and sugar. Then add the flour, baking soda, spices, and salt. After it starts to from a crumbly dough, pour in the applesauce and mix together.

I used two small loaf pans, pouring mixture evenly into both. I sprayed my pans with cooking spray first or you could use parchment paper, depending on the dish you choose to bake them in.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.

Oooh, they smell soooo good!! They came out perfectly moist with just the right amount of spice!

   YUMMY! Thanks, Angela!

From www.ajokeaday.com - 10/12/13:
 
This past fall semester, at Duke University, there were two sophomores who were taking Organic Chemistry and who did pretty well on all of the quizzes, midterms, labs, etc. Going into the final exam, they had solid "A's."

These two friends were so confident going into the final that the weekend before finals week (even though the Chem. final was on Monday), they decided to go up to University of Virginia to a party with some friends.

So they did this and had a great time. However, they ended up staying longer than they planned, and they didn't make it back to Duke until early Monday morning. Rather than taking the final then, they found Professor Aldric after the final and explained to him why they missed it. They told him that they went up to Virginia for the weekend, and had planned to come back in time to study, but that they had a flat tire on the way back and didn't have a spare and couldn't get help for a long time. So they were late getting back to campus.

Aldric thought this over and agreed that they could make up the final on the following day. The two guys were elated and relieved. So, they studied that night and went in the next day at the time that Aldric had told them.

He placed them in separate rooms, handed each of them a test booklet and told them to begin. They looked at the first problem, which was something simple about free radical formation and was worth 5 points. "Cool" they thought, "this is going to be easy." They did that problem and then turned the page.

They were unprepared, however, for what they saw on the next page.

It said: (95 points) "Which tire?"

Anchors Aweigh

Words (Verses One and Two) by Midshipman First Class Alfred Hart Miles, USNA - '07, 1906 ;
Music by Lieut. Charles A. Zimmermann, USN, 1906
Words (Verse Three) by Midshipman Royal Lovell, USNA - '26.


Stand Navy down the field, sails set to the sky.
We'll never change our course, so Army you steer shy-y-y-y.
Roll up the score, Navy, Anchors Aweigh.
Sail Navy down the field and sink the Army, sink the Army Grey.

Get underway, Navy, Decks cleared for the fray,
We'll hoist true Navy Blue So Army down your Grey-y-y-y.
Full speed ahead, Navy; Army heave to,
Furl Black and Grey and Gold and hoist the Navy, hoist the Navy Blue

Blue of the Seven Seas; Gold of God's great sun
Let these our colors be Till all of time be done-n-n-ne,
By Severn shore we learn Navy's stern call:
Faith, courage, service true With honor over, honor over all.
