All are on their rounds tonight;
In the wan moon's silver ray,
Thrives their helter-skelter play."

IN MEMORIAM -
60 YEARS LATER
It is now more than 60 years after
the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial
chain, in memory of the six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million
Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped,
burned, starved and humiliated with the German and Russian Peoples looking the
Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the Holocaust to be "a myth," it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets, because there are others who would like to do it again.....
Thanks so much, Wayne Honey! I cut this out of the "funny papers" when it first appeared, because it's very essential to us all that we never forget - and never become confused by such evil rhetoric!
From one of my Famous Marines, Herb Hice of MI, who served in the Pacific Theater during WWII - 10/26/07 - "Dear Carol / Dimples, All work & no play makes Herb a dull boy !!!":
Dear Carol / Dimples,
Even tho I was a Humble Carpenter all my life, I did find time for a little recreation.
This nice catch of King Salmon was a very enjoyable day of fishing on Lake Michigan.
Usually to catch Salmon like this we would be out from shore about 10 miles. Our lines would be trolling down anywhere from 10 ft. to 100 ft. deep. It might take up to 1/2 hr. to reel the larger Salmon in. They were delicious broiled with a little Butter and Lemon juice. I kinda miss the old fishing days.
I knew you would want to know all this !!!

Your Friend, Herbie
WOWZERS!!! What a haul! Thanks, Herbie Darlin'!
From Elaine Wilkinson Bracken ('61) of VA - 10/26/07 - "may-i-have-this-dance":
WOWZERS!!! What a hoot! Thanks, Elaine!
From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 10/26/07 - "Charging cell phones.":
I've done this, too! Never thought about how dangerous it might be!
Re-Charging Cell Phones
I went to _snopes.com_ (http://snopes.com/) to be sure it wasn't an urban legend & it's not. It is very true! And I do this all the time!
It's wise to be safe and safe being wise.
This was also on Pittsburgh's WTAE channel 4 News.
Never, ever answer a cell phone while it is being CHARGED!!
A few day s ago, a person was recharging his cell phone at home. Just at that time a call came and he answered it with the instrument still connected to the outlet. After a few seconds electricity flowed into the cell phone unrestrained and the young man was thrown to the ground with a heavy thud. His parents rushed to the room only to find him unconscious, with a weak heartbeat and burnt fingers He was rushed to the nearby hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival. Cell phones are a very useful modern invention. However, we must be aware that it can also be an instrument of death.
Never use the cell phone while it is hooked to the electrical outlet!
YIKESARONI-RINI-ROONI!!! Y'all be careful! Thanks again, Wayne Honey!
From Norm Covert ('61) of MD - 10/26/07 - "The Bridge!":
WOW - thanks, Norm! I often feel those earliest memories are the most precious! Thanks for sharing this!
From Norm Covert ('61) of MD - 10/26/07 - "Lollipop":
personally can remember a great many things that happened when I was two years
old, and I remember one occasion each of being in my crib, my playpen, and my
stroller, but I'll tell you more of those next time.....
We used the Lollipop theme last May 19 in honor of that gorgeous David Whitley's ('64 - of VA) birthday, he being the biggest kid I know:
Thanks for the memories! By the way, I'm so delighted to know that Kiersten is drug free at the ripe old age of six. What a world! Keep having fun with your babies, Normie!
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 10/27/07 - "2 Halloween cards":
These are cute - thanks, Shari!
From Joe Drewry ('58) of VA - 10/28/07 - "Updating In Memoriam for NNHS58":
Joe, I really appreciate your telling me this, and I updated that page right away, but the news came as such a shock to me, I wasn't able to bring myself to scanning Gary's senior portrait for several days.
You Crabbers may remember Gary's younger brother, Sterling Farnsworth (Hampton HS - @'64).
Perhaps someone can supply more information.
Thanks again, Joe!
From Evelyn Casey Snead ('57) of VA - 10/28/07 - "email":
I thought I had notified you of my new email but I am not getting newsletters. My new email is ________________.
Thanks again Carol, I look forward to
receiving them again.
Thanks for letting me know, Evelyn! I have you all switched now. And if you're really missing all those back issues, you can always find them waiting for you here:
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 10/28/07 - "Very Cool":
This is really fascinating to watch, Shari - and what a surprising - if disturbing - ending! Thanks, Lady!
From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 10/28/07 - "Italy was fabulous...":
It has replaced Hawaii in my number one list of places to go! We visited friends who are missionaries with Cadence.org. They provide support to families of the military who are deployed to Afghanistan and their home base is in Vicenza. We stayed with them and visited Venice, Murano, Rome, and Florence. We helped them with potluck on Friday night (about 50 attended) and they also had a group in Sunday after Chapel. Will send a photo or two when they are uploaded to the computer. I could just eat my way through Italy...they paint all their buildings, pink, orange, or yellow...my kind of place!
WOWZERONI-RINI!!! How exciting! We're so happy you had such a wonderful time, Jean - and we'll look forward to those images! Thanks, Lady!
From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 10/30/07 - "Re: 10/27/07 - NNHS - Navy Day":
I noticed the
entry and photo submitted by
Ron Miller '59 (of NC) regarding the rendering of
passing honors to USS ARIZONA by USS RONALD REAGAN while entering Pearl Harbor.
Some not familiar with the Navy may not know that such passing honors are a matter of great solemnity and are prescribed by Article 1282 of Unites States Navy Regulations:
1282. Ships Passing U.S.S. ARIZONA Memorial.
When a ship of the Navy is passing the USS ARIZONA Memorial, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii,
between sunrise and sunset, passing honors consisting of sounding “Attention" and rendering
the hand salute by all persons in view on deck and not in ranks shall be executed by that ship.
Few people enjoy frivolity more than I, but sometimes I fear there is not enough solemnity in our world for occasions of reverence such as this. Thank you for the reminder, Captain!
