From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 10/15/14, 2:13 AM - "Amber Alert":
A friend just passed this on. Although it's a far cry from most of us maybe some have friends close to the area.
OH, NO! Thanks so much, Shari!
From Me ('65) of NC - 10/15/14 - "Bad Time for Computers; Good Time for Wildlife":
| 1. As many of y'all noticed,
someone thought it would be funny to hack into my Facebook account. I
myself was not so amused. I postponed joining Facebook for YEARS, and
had barely been on there seven weeks when this nonsense befell. Had I
REALLY asked you to befriend me (again!) you would have seen my picture.
I understand that you did not. My dear daughter
- Hillsboro HS,
IL / American School, IL - of NC)
helped me reset my passwords, so all should be
secure now. My apologies to all for whom this may have caused a problem
- and thanks, Adrienne!
2. The spacebar on my husband Paul's (Harty - Bardolph HS, IL - '61 - of NC) computer inexplicably just stopped working. In the immortal words of that great cartoon dog, Muttley, "Sanafrazzin-Ratzafrazzin!"
3. Around noon today, Paul spotted a grey fox right in our back yard. So cute!
From Sarah Puckett Kressaty ('65) of VA - 10/14/14 - "Rembrandt painting 1642 - Night Watch":
|Rembrandt painting 1642 - Night
This is well worth a view ... also ... at the
end ... look for the box, left, one down I think, that gives the behind
the scenes story of how this was made.
Rijksmuseum museum in Holland had an idea: Let's bring the art to the
people and then, hopefully, they will come to see more - at the museum.
They took one Rembrandt painting from 1642, Night Watch, and brought to
life the characters in it, placed them in a busy mall and the rest you
can see for yourself!
CLICK on the link below.....take a good look at the painting to the
left. Then click to enjoy the video.
WOWZERS - SUCH GRAND FUN! Thank you, Sarah Sugah!
