“Procrastination is opportunity's assassin.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
It's just my opinion, of course, but I think we'd all have far fewer regrets in life if we took to heart the advice in this song. I know for a fact that I myself have a long litany of things I wish I had said or done before it was everlastingly too late.

From Johnnie Bateman ('70) of VA - 11/05/14 - "Loss of a 1970 Grad, James Doughty":
James Doughty was a NNHS 1970 grad who passed away I believe on Sept. 20, 2014. He was a Facebook friend of mine and his sister, Annette Engelmann, posted on James' page on Sept 27:
"James, my youngest brother closest to me, passed away last Sunday."
I knew he was living in Pensacola, Florida but could not find his Obit.
Oh, I'm so sorry to hear this, Johnnie! You have my deepest sympathies on the loss of your friend and classmate.
I've added his name to the In Memoriam page for the Class of 1970.

Stupid, but amusing and catchy all at the same time.
If y'all are fans of The Walking Dead (and if not, why not?!?), you'll find it all the funnier, but I think you can watch the goofy lip-syncing and still get a big chuckle! You can catch the show Sunday nights at 9:00/8:00 on AMC!
From George Helliesen ('61) of MI - 11/04/14 - "LOVE STORY FOR GOLFERS":
|LOVE STORY FOR GOLFERS
A couple was having dinner one
evening when the husband reached across the table took his wife's hand
in his and said, "Beth, soon we will be married 30 years, and there's
something I have to know. In all of these 30 years, have you ever been
unfaithful to me?"
