From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 08/05/10 - "Vote for Grace (REPEATED)":
This is my daughter Laura's dog in a contest to be on the cover of a bag
of dog food.
Vote every day for Grace. Thanks.
Oh, Laura is your daughter, Norris! Well, that makes it all the more important!
Grace has been named the September 2010 People's Choice!
BUT - She's falling considerably behind a dog in California named Dollar!
The last time I checked Grace had 4298 votes and Dollar had 7223 votes. We cannot allow this to happen! Doncha wanna go shopping and spot Grace's image on a bag of dog food and know that YOU played a large part in placing her there?!?It only takes about two seconds to cast your allotted daily vote)!!!
From John London (Warwick HS - '57) of VA - 11/24/10 - "RE: Paul (Harty - Bardolph HS, IL - '61 - of IL)":
|Carol - I am sorry to hear
that Paul is having health issues.
Please relay to him from me prayers for a speedy recovery. And for peace and comfort for you both.
Behold! What is a bell? A bell is that which sounds, far, and high ... It will echo far and wide like the peal of thunder but under utmost purity. And evil men, hearing the bell, will be saved.
Thank you so much, John Darlin'! Paul is doing far better now, but it was very scary for a while, especially on Friday when we realized how very, very close we came to losing him. The nasty infection picked the worst possible place to attack him. Obviously, we have much more to be thankful for this year!
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 11/23/10 - "Tuesday":
|Sickness has the best of
me, like it does so many this time of year, so getting this out early.
I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!
"You're only here for a short visit. Don't
hurry. Don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way."

|7 Secrets to a Stress Free Thanksgiving and
By Paula Gregorowicz
Before you know it Thanksgiving will be upon us. We will sit down once again with our families (biological and/or chosen) and gorge upon a feast until we need to unbutton our jeans and snooze on the couch. Thanksgiving officially launches what people refer to as "The Holiday Season" which means it is the beginning of what is often the most stressful time of the year. I'm here to tell you - it doesn't have to be that way! Consider these top tips and you can enjoy your meal without all the stress and heartburn.
Keep It in Perspective
Mind Your Budget
Focus on What Matters
Experience People as They Are
Savor the Moment

We Gather Together
Text: Nederlandtsch Gedencklanck; trans. by Theodore Baker Music: 16th cent. Dutch melody; arr. by Edward Kremser (1838-1914) Tune: KREMSER, Meter: Irr. We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing; He chastens and hastens His will to make known; The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing, Sing praises to His name: He forgets not his own. Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining, Ordaining, maintaining His kingdom divine So from the beginning the fight we were winning; Thou, Lord, wast at our side, All glory be thine! We all do extol thee, thou leader triumphant, And pray that thou still our defender wilt be. Let thy congregation escape tribulation; Thy name be ever praised! O Lord, make us free!
