238th Birthday of the United States Marine Corps
United States Marine Corps, with its fiercely proud tradition
of excellence in combat, its hallowed rituals, and its unbending
code of honor, is part of the fabric of American myth.”
Thomas E. Ricks in Making the Corps, 1997
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
This event repeats each year, and assuming the Webmistress is not asleep at the wheel, we try to mark that observance.

November 10, 1942 - Germany invaded Vichy France following French Admiral François Darlan's agreement to an armistice with the Allies in North Africa.
THIS DAY IN 1963:
Sunday, November 10, 1963 - Actor Hugh Bonneville was born Hugh Richard Bonneville Williams in Blackheath, London, England.
This is so sad it brings tears to my eyes.
We had freedom, failure,
success and responsibility, and we learned HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL !
You might want to share
this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the
Lawyers and the Government regulated our lives for our own purposes.
Ain't it da truth?!? Thanks so much, George!
From My Daughter-in-Law, Laura Adams Harty (Cardston HS, Alberta - '95) of AL - 11/09/13 - "Hair Day":

http://www.recipelion.com/Pies/Country-Tar-Heel-Pie/ml/1 -Country Tar Heel Pie - "Take a trip to the country side and try Country Tar Heel Pie. A wonderful blend of all natural flavors, you won't be able to deny its awesome flavors.

Easy to make, it's a pie recipe that is perfect when you need a dessert on the fly. Enjoy!"
http://www.pink-parsley.com/2012/12/homemade-chicken-stock-crockpot.html - Homemade Chicken Stock (Crockpot) - "When it comes to making it yourself, chicken stock is one of those things that you may be tempted to say "why bother?" It's pretty cheap to buy, and the store-bought version is fine to use in most capacities. However, once you make your own, you'll definitely see the difference. Homemade stock is rich and flavorful. And what's even better - it's practically free to make. Here's my M.O. Whenever I roast a chicken or buy a rotisserie chicken, I pick all the meat and skin off, put the carcass in a big ziploc bag, and throw it in the freezer. I also save any scraps of veggies and throw them in the freezer as well - bits of carrot, that half of an onion that I didn't need, celery that's on it's last leg... you get the picture. I usually wait to make the stock until I have two chicken carcasses. Just to get more bang for my buck..."
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 11/06/13 - "Some Things People Regret the Most Before They Die (#5 in a series of 19)":
|AMEN! Thank you, Shari!|
From www.ajokeaday.com - 11/09/13:
|An old, stingy
lawyer was dying and was determined to prove wrong the old saying; "You
can't take it with you."
He told his wife to go down to the bank and withdraw enough money to fill two pillowcases. His plan: Put the bags directly over his bed and when he died grab them on his way up to heaven.
One day the old ambulance chaser died. When his wife was up cleaning in the attic one day, she came across the forgotten pillowcases.
She then said to herself, “That old fool. I knew he should have had me put them in the basement!"
