10/19/09 - NNHS Newsletter - You Really Got Me

A flock of sheep that leisurely pass by
One after one; the sound of rain, and bees
Murmuring; the fall of rivers, winds and seas,
Smooth fields, white sheets of water, and pure sky -
I've thought of all by turns, and still I lie

- William Wordsworth, To Sleep
(07 Apr 1770 – 23 Apr 1850)

       From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 10/18/09 - "REUNION NAME BADGES, KEY CHAINS AND WINE":

       Phil Hammond  ('64 - of UT) mentioned the name badges, so I thought I would show you what yours would have looked like, had you been able to attend.

He also mentioned (the wine and gift key chains).  The key chain metal looks like brass in the photo, but it really is shiny like silver.

The labels on the wine bottles are difficult to read, as the text was necessarily small. So, images of the labels are included.

OH, WOW!!!

   Thank you so much, David! I've posted your images where I think they most logically belong - on the introductory page:

      From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 10/18/09 - "Onions":

I just might have to try this one!!!!!!

Got this one from a friend. It has been checked out on snopes and there is no pro or con but may be worth a try.

Forget the spicy candles and herbs to freshen the smell in your house! Try onions!

Onions fight flu virus

In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people there was a doctor who visited the many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu. Many of the farmers and their family had contracted it and many died.

The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone was very healthy. When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was different the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in the rooms of the home, (probably only two rooms back then). The doctor couldn’t believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions and place it under the microscope. She gave him one and when he did this, he did find the flu virus in the onion. It obviously absorbed the bacteria, therefore, keeping the family healthy.

I heard this story from a hairdresser in AZ. She said that several years ago many of her employees were coming down with the flu and so were many of her customers. The next year she placed several bowls with onions around in her shop. To her surprise, none of her staff got sick.

The moral of the story is, buy some onions and place them in bowls around your home. If you work at a desk, place one or two in your office or under your desk or even on top somewhere. Try it and see what happens.

If this helps you and your loved ones from getting sick, all the better. If you do get the flu, it just might be a mild case.

Whatever, what have you to lose? Just a few bucks on onions!!!!!

      HEY, it couldn't hurt! I think I will try this (but I think I'll keep my yummy candles, too)! Thanks, Shari!

  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 10/18/09 - "PYREX_CAUTION!!!!!! SOOO TRUE!!!"

Recently I read in an email - and in the 10/14 Newsletter - to beware the newer Pyrex dishes were not safe, that Pyrex sold their name and formula to China and China had changed the formula thus making it cheaper to produce.



I just removed my acorn squash from the oven and bammm the dish broke and glass flew all over the place.  Thank God I was not hurt!!  Such a large target too!!!  Have to keep your sense of humor at times like this or just be an idiot like me!!  I can't begin to count all the roasts, cakes, pies, etc. I've baked in Pyrex.  What a mess to clean up!  I won't be using Pyrex again...toooo afraid to now.  My suggestion...Start using your metal pans.

So often we read these warnings and we ignore them, I guess we don't believe them or think it will not happen to us, sort of like the warnings on cigarette packs.  But bad things do happen and we need to use our heads and not count on being lucky.  I've used Pyrex over 44 years...NO MORE!!!  I've learned, the hard way.

 Joyce Cahoon

   WAIT a minute!!! YOU?!? YOURSELF?!?   YIKESARONI!!!  I'm so sorry, Joyce! Grab the vitamin E capsules!

YES!!!!!  ME!!!! MYSELF!!!!! And YIKES is the correct word!!!  Thank you for caring, and thank God for taking care of me, no physical damage, just a huge lesson learned.  This will teach me to pay more attention to email warnings.  It actually passed through my mind when I placed the squash in the pan....and then again when I put the pan in the oven but did I heed that inner warning....NO!!  Pyrex just looks so clean and you can serve in it as well.  I'll just have to use Corning (I hope it's safe) or maybe some LeCreuset for replacements that can serve a dual purpose. 

... First my knees, then my mind and now my Pyrex, what's next to bite the dust?  LOL

   But - but - I thought that warning only applied to "new" Pyrex - you know, purchased in the last 25 years!

That's good to know but this dish was my Mother's and I pushed mental warning aside cause I just assumed that it was surely over 25 years old.  I'm
a scaredycat type person anyway, I'll just use the Pyrex for non-oven purposes.  Once bitten, twice shy!!

   I'm still just horribly aghast, Joyce! Take care of yourself - and thanks so much for letting us know!

       From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 10/18/09 - "      Miss Kanter's (Hampton HS - '55) Note":


Miss Kanter sent a “Thank You” note to the Committee.

   She always does! Thanks again, Captain!

             I've added this to the introductory page as well:


      From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 10/18/09 - "What Is That?": - What Is That?

    Okay, Shari, ya got me! Thanks so much!

  From My Friend, Judy Cress Bowermaster (Litchfield HS, IL - '59) of IL - 10/16/09 - "Grandmas Don't Know Everything":

Thought this was funny!!!  Hope it doesn't offend anyone. 

Grandmas don't know everything....

Little Tony was seven years old and was staying with his grandmother for a few days.  He'd been playing outside with the other kids for a while when he came into the house and asked her, "Grandma, what's that called when two people sleep in the same room and one is on top of the other?"

She was a little taken aback, but she decided to tell him the truth. "It's called sex, darling." 

Little Tony said, "Oh, OK," and went back outside to play with the other kids. 

A few minutes later he came back in and said angrily, "Grandma, it isn't called sex. It's called bunk beds, and Jimmy's mom wants to talk to you."

   WILD GIGGLES! Thanks, Jude!

From ArcaMax Jokes - 10/18/09:

Aerospace Industry

My job is in the Aerospace Industry, and it's always been a challenge to explain just what kind of work I do.

At one gathering, I tried several unsuccessful attempted explanations before deciding to be as generic as possible. When the subject came up while I was talking with a group of guys, I replied simply, "Defense Contractor."

The men nodded, and as the conversation went on, I silently declared victory to myself. Then, one of them turned to me and asked, "So, what do you put up mainly? Chain-link?"


Morning Paper

I asked my wife if she had seen this morning's paper. She said, "Yes, I wrapped the garbage in it--just the classified section, though."

I said, "But...but...I haven't seen it yet!"

She replied, "Oh, you didn't miss much. Just some egg shells, coffee grounds and a few orange peels."
