"You have it easily in your power to increase the sum
total of this world's happiness now. How? By giving a few
words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely
or discouraged."

-- Dale Carnegie
(1888 - 1955)
“The purpose of life is not just to be ‘happy’. The purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you have lived at all.”

- Leo Roston
(1908 - 1997)

Thank you for the wonderful newsletters.  I hope they continue for many years to come. 
I want to add a little something to the stories of Newport News High School alums.

Not long after marrying, my husband started working in Washington, D.C. at everyone's favorite agency, the IRS. 
There were a number of fellas from that agency, the Justice Department and the Interstate Commerce Commission
right across the street, who played basketball together everyday at lunch on the Justice Department roof
(thanks to Bobby Kennedy's need to exercise on a regular basis). 
I used to hear regularly about this brilliant guy who worked at the Justice Department,
but never really heard a name or got to meet him socially.

Years later, Ken (my hubby) mentioned he was at a legal function and someone came over to him and said hello. 
It was the fella from Justice who was then working for Exxon in Dallas. 
So Ken invited him and his wife to have dinner with us several days later and to the house first for wine and cheese. 

When the doorbell rang and the couple came into the house, I knew they looked familiar,
but I wasn't really ready to try to place why I knew them. 
The wife looked at me a moment, asked me where I went to high school,
and promptly announced she was Carol Vogel ('63)! 
What a delight.  We laughed, cried and chattered for the rest of the evening
going through old Anchors I had recently located and reliving so many great occasions. 
She is married to Darden Daniel ('63) (the brilliant lawyer from the Department of Justice).  
They have two children, and live about 8 miles west of us in Texas. 
We see them several times a year.  It is indeed a small world!

WOW - what a great story!  Thanks, Bobbie!


Darkness and Light
Hasidic parable

A rabbi asked his students, "When is it at dawn that one can tell the light from the darkness?"

One student replied, "When I can tell a goat from a  donkey. "
"No," answered the rabbi.

Another said, "When I can tell a palm tree from a fig."
 "No," answered the rabbi again.
"Well, then what is the answer?" his students pressed him.

"Only when you look into the face of every man and every woman and see your brother and your sister," said the rabbi.
"Only then have you seen the light.  All else is still darkness."

Tell Me About Yourself

(recorded by Nat King Cole, 1960)

Fascinating creature, talk to me,
Tell me all about yourself.
Be sure to cover every feature thoroughly,
Tell me all about yourself.
What is your ambition?
Tell me all of your schemes.
Have you a plan?


I want the story of your childhood,
I'm all ears,
Bring me up to date on you,
Get the family album, filed away on the shelf,
You fascinate me,
Talk and elate me,
Tell me all about yourself.

What's Your Name?

What's your name? I have seen you before
What's your name? May I walk you to your door?
It's so hard to find a personality with charms like yours for me
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ee

What's your name? Is it Mary or Sue?
What's your name? Do I stand a chance with you?
It's so hard to find a personality with charms like yours for me
Ooh-ee, ooh-ee, ooh-ee

I stood on this corner waiting for you to come along
So my heart could feel satisf-i-ied
So please let me be your Number One
Under the moon, under the stars, and under the sun

Oh-oh, what's your name? (what's your name?) Is it Mary or Sue?
What's your name? Do I stand a chance with you?
It's so hard to find a personality with charms like yours for me
Ooh-ee, ooh-ee, ooh-ee

What's your name?
What's your name?
