Let It Snow!

“There is nothing in the world more beautiful than the forestclothed to its very hollows in snow. It is the still ecstasy
of nature, wherein every spray, every blade of grass, every spire of reed, every intricacy of twig, is clad with radiance.”

- William Sharp (pseudonym of Fiona MacLeod) 
(12 Sept 1855 - 12 Dec 1905)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 
 
   Today's Newsletter theme seems to be a natural today, with so many places getting sooo much snow.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mN7LW0Y00kE - Let It Snow! - Dean Martin


From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Let_It_Snow!_Let_It_Snow!_Let_It_Snow!:

"Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!", also known as "Let It Snow", is a song written by lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne in July 1945. It was written in Hollywood, California during a heat wave as Cahn and Styne imagined cooler conditions.[1] Although the song's lyrics make no mention of Christmas, it is played on radio stations during the Christmas season and is often covered by various artists on Christmas-themed albums...

From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 12/28/17:

From Bob Sprouse ('66) of CO - 12/26/17:

  Hi Carol,

Bobby Sprouse ’66 here. I’m going to put this info on the NNHS Facebook page but thought I’d share it with you also.

Some time ago I put together this logo from my old and still unused Typhoon logo…

 
 

I work as a photographer, and was putting together a coffee mug order for a high school football program and decided to order a mug for myself with this logo. Here’s the result...
 
   

I had it done at Sam’s Club for around 15 dollars. Anyone interested in doing the same (or using the logo for some other purpose) just needs to copy the image and take it to Sam’s of wherever they go to for photo processing.

   WOWZERONI! Y'all can all have all sorts of fun with this!

   I've left the logo in its original size for clarity, and for safekeeping, I'm adding this to TYPHOONMART:

  Thank you, Bobby!

 
 


 From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 12/26/17 - "Songs with meaning":

Hope you all enjoy these inspirational messages. I think it's great that love, harmony & oneness, instead of division, is beginning to show forth, despite some opposition toward political, religious or racial divide.

Disturbed -The Sound Of Silence
(Such a beautiful & passionate rendition. The build up in intensity is simply amazing and really shows off his awesome vocal range.)   
 
Shinedown - How Did You Love

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ How_Did_You_Love
 

Frontman Brent Smith said of the song's meaning in a Billboard article:

"How Did You Love is about understanding and respecting your own mortality. Not in a morbid, negative way, but in a way that inspires you to live each day to its fullest and without regret, especially when it comes to your relationships and your individuality. You need to be at peace and proud when you look back and ask yourself, 'how did you love?'

How Did You Love
You can have a sound of the thousand voices calling your name
You can have the light of the world blind you, bathe you in grace
But I don't see so easily what you hold in your hands
'Cause castles crumble, kingdoms fall and turn into sand
You can be an angel of mercy or give in to hate
You can try to buy it just like it every other careless mistake
How do you justify I'm mystified by the ways of your heart
With a million lies the truth will rise to tear you apart
Woah
No one gets out alive, every day is do or die
The one thing you leave behind
Is how did you love, how did you love?
It's not what you believe those prayers will make you bleed
But while you're on your knees
How did you love, how did you love, how did you love?
Nothing ever feels the quite same when you are what you dreamed
And you will never look at anything the same when you see what I see
How we forget ourselves, lose our way from the cradle to the grave
You can't replicate or duplicate, gotta find your own way
No one gets out alive, every day is do or die
The one thing you leave behind
Is how did you love, how did you love?
It's not what you believe those prayers will make you bleed
But while you're on your knees
How did you love, how did you love, how did you love?
This ain't no cross to bury
We are the judge and jury, we are the judge and jury
No one gets out alive, every day is do or die
The one thing you leave behind
Is how did you love, how did you love?
It's not what you believe those prayers will make you bleed
But while you're on your knees
How did you love, how did you love?
This ain't no cross to bury
We are the judge and jury
This ain't no cross to bury
We are the judge and jury
How did you love, how did you love?
How did you love, how did you love?
How did you love, how did you love?
How did you love, how did you love?

Nickelback - If Today Was Your Last Day [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

If Today Was Your Last Day
My best friend gave me the best advice
He said each day's a gift and not a given right
Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind
And try to take the path less traveled by
That first step you take is the longest stride
If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?

Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
If today was your last day
(If today was your last day)
Against the grain should be a way of life
What's worth the prize is always worth the fight
Every second counts 'cause there's no second try
So live like you'll never live it twice
Don't take the free ride in your own life
If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?

Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce old memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you're dreamin' of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you finally fall in love
If today was your last day
If today was your last day
Would you make your mark by mending a broken heart?
You know it's never too late to shoot for the stars
Regardless of who you are
So do whatever it takes
Cause you can't rewind a moment in this life
Let nothin' stand in your way
Cause the hands of time are never on your side
If today was your last day
And tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?

Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce old memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you're dreamin' of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you finally fall in love
If today was your last day

Let It Snow!

Words by Sammy Cahn (18 June 1913 – 15 Jan 1993)

Music by Jule Styne (31 Dec 1905 - 20 Sept 1994), 1945

"The wonderful Christmas song Let It Snow was created by lyricist Sammy Cahn and the composer Jule Styne in 1945.
The words and lyrics of Let It Snow reflect the feeling of warmth and security associated with Christmas and also brings in the more modern customs of popping corn!
The song Let It Snow was reprised in recent years when used in the Bruce Willis film Die Hard which started with the film's hero travelling to meet his family at Christmas."



Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

It doesn't show signs of stopping,
And I've bought some corn for popping,
The lights are turned way down low,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

When we finally kiss goodnight,
How I'll hate going out in the storm!
But if you'll really hold me tight,
All the way home I'll be warm.

The fire is slowly dying,
And, my dear, we're still good-bying,
But as long as you love me so,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
