THIS DAY IN WWII:
November 07, 1941 - World War II: Soviet leader Joseph Stalin addressed the Soviet Union for only the second time during his three-decade rule (the first time was earlier that year on July 2). He stated that even though 350,000 troops had been killed in German attacks so far, that the Germans had lost 4.5 million soldiers (a gross exaggeration) and that Soviet victory was near.

His speech was followed by a military parade in Moscow, when marching through Red Square, Soviet soldiers went straight on the front line:

From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 11/06/09 - "Famous Marine nominee.":
Hope you had an enjoyable trip and arrived back home safely.
May I recommend Captain John Llewellyn USMC for your Famous Marine page?
He is a combat veteran of the Korean War, who attended NNHS before transferring to Staunton Military Academy.
Below is a link to his "Shadow Box" profile at Marines-Together We Served.
Thank you, Joe!
Oh, crum, this is a password-protected site, and once again, I'm not exactly eligible to gain entry. I don't think anyone would seriously accept this image that our late darling Herbie Hice (22 Oct 1924 - 18 Apr 2008) made of me for my birthday three years ago as sufficient proof.
I miss that Herbie so! Anyway, Adonis, let's try again to add Captain Llewellyn to our page!
From My Daughter-in-Law, Diana Lyons Harty (Portsmouth HS, NH / Eastlake HS, CA - '05) of MA - 11/06/09 - "USAA CEO Announces Expanded Member Eligibility":
Thought you might be interested in this, since Dale (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL - '02 - of MA) told me that you and Paul (Harty - Bardolph HS, IL - '61 - of IL) and your children weren't able to take advantage of this way back in the day. Dale and Buckley and I are all registered and do quite a bit of our business with them, and we've had a really good experience and think you may as well, if you choose. Anyway, here you go!
Dear Mrs. Harty:
USAA membership is a privilege earned by those in uniform and it's a privilege that can be handed down to their children.
Have questions about joining? Call 1-800-531-6597
Thanks so much, Diana! As this is a new service being provided, I thought I'd "share it with the class!"
From F.A. Saunders (Hampton HS - '64) of VA - 11/06/09 - "What year was this shot???? anybody know?":
Thanks, F.A.! All I can say is, it's a bit before my time. Well, before my time in Newport News, anyway!
From Cookie Phillips Tyndall ('64) of VA - 11/06/09 - "Thousands send early Christmas cards to dying 5-year-old Noah Biorkman | Detroit News - - MLive.com":
Thank you so much, Cookie!
Y'all know what to do!
From Ruth Ann Reece Horace ('67) of FL - 11/06/09 - "What is confidence?":
|What is confidence?
A hypothetical situation where 20 CEOs board an airplane and are told that the flight that they are about to take is the first-ever to feature pilotless technology: It is an uncrewed aircraft.
Each one of the CEOs is then told, privately, that their company's software is running the aircraft's automatic pilot system.
Nineteen of the CEOs promptly leave the aircraft, each offering a different type of excuse.
One CEO alone remains on board the jet, seeming very calm indeed.
Asked why he is so confident in this first uncrewed flight, he replies: If it is the same software that developed by my company's IT systems department, this plane won't even take off!!!! ."
That is called Confidence!!!
From My Friend, Judy Bundy Bowermaster (Litchfield HS, IL - '59) of IL - 11/06/09 - "An Idea For Your Outside Xmas Decorations":
I think this is priceless. Look at the house to the right. You may want to do some similar decorating this Christmas...
This is priceless, Jude, thanks!

Jokes - 11/06/09:
"The handcuffs are tight because they're new. They'll stretch out after you wear them awhile."
"If you run, you'll only go to jail tired."
"So, you don't know how fast you were going. I guess that means I can write anything I want on the ticket, huh?"
"Yes sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don't think it will help. Oh, did I mention that I am the shift supervisor?"
"Warning! You want a warning? O.K., I'm warning you not to do that again or I'll give you another ticket."
"The answer to this last question will determine whether you are drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or dog?"
"Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven."
"Life's tough, it's tougher if you're stupid."
"No sir, we don't have quotas anymore. We used to have quotas, but now we're allowed to write as many tickets as we want."
"Just how big were those two beers?
