"Look round and round upon this
bare bleak plain, and see even here,
- Charles Dickens, Martin Chuzzlewit, 1843/4
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Well, I certainly hope that wherever you are, and whatever the weather may be, that you yourself are not feeling "bleak"!!!
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 12/12/06 - "A Web Movie & Joe Boxer":
YIKES!!!The colds and flu this year have been treacherous! Sorry one found its way to you, Shari!
I Am Only One
I am only one,
But still I am one.
I cannot do everything,
But still I can do something;
And because I cannot do everything
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.
Thanks so much, Shari - and Merry Christmas!
From Marcus C. Higgins ('65) of AZ - 12/12/06:
Our paths never crossed in high school, but you always write an excellent and informative column on this web page. Thanks for a day of good reading on my 60th birthday (12-12). Have a great Christmas and a blessed 2007.
Thanks, Marcus! I'm glad you're enjoying everything, but YIKESARONI!!! We missed your birthday!!!
I've added it to the birthday page, and we'll certainly try not to let that happen again!
A Very Merry Un-Birthday to You - and Merry Christmas!
From My Daughter, Adrienne Harty of NC - 12/12/06 - "All I Want For Christmas":
All I Want For Christmas by Gerard Arthur Way:
This video was made by some My Chemical Romance fan obviously. Hope you like.
Um, Baby Girl?!? You know that (unlike most people of my generation, I would think) I really do like My Chemical Romance, especially their videos, right?
I mean, I even used one of their songs as a Newsletter theme, right?
And I realize that this video is not of their own production. But the song alone, uh, I mean, uh....
Well, let's just say that I prefer "Helena" and "I'm Not Okay (I promise)" and "The Ghost of You" and "Welcome to the Black Parade".......
But thanks, Webby! I love you, too! Merry Christmas!

In the Bleak Midwinter
Words by Christina Rossetti, 1872 Music by Gustav Holtz, 1906
In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow, In the bleak midwinter, long ago. Our God, Heaven cannot hold Him, nor earth sustain; Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign. In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ. Enough for Him, Whom cherubim, worship night and day, Breastful of milk, and a mangerful of hay; Enough for Him, Whom angels fall before, The ox and ass and camel which adore. Angels and archangels may have gathered there, Cherubim and seraphim thronged the air; But His mother only, in her maiden bliss, Worshipped the beloved with a kiss. What can I give Him, poor as I am? If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb; If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part; Yet what I can I give Him: give my heart.
