Edvard Grieg's 170th Birthday
“It is great to have friends when one is young, but indeed it is
- Edvard Grieg
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
| I was
struck once more by the poignancy of this quotation from Grieg, and even more so when
I realized that he was barely 64 when he died. I
mean, YOWZERONI, that's not even old!
But isn't this just the most delightful music?!?

From Malcolm Davis ('65) of VA - 06/14/13, 8:16 PM - " Jamey (Douglas) Bacon ('66 - of VA) Mission Project progress report":
|The selected start date for laying the bricks is
August 1, 2013. This was chosen in
consultation with Mr. Ken Thompson the proprietor of "Four
Seasons Home Repair" who will be the brains of the project. Ken and
I have been busy getting an Easement Permit because a total of 16
feet of the driveway sits on an easement. I purchased a construction
H. P. Lucas's ('65 - of VA) insurance office to meet the city
requirement and Ken had to add two specific clauses to his liability
insurance to meet the requirement to obtain a permit. This has
occupied me this week.
I have reserved the excavator for the construction date. Remember that the excavator is donated by "Grand Rental Station's " Kevin Coats. The physical preparation of the site will be done by "Four Seasons Home Repair" who is also volunteering to help. I have purchased the bricks with donations from the Typhoons and others who responded to this need. It looks like we will be ready willing and able to do the job on August 1st. Pray for good weather and for Jamey's health and happiness.

three ingredients and being simple to do: it's gluten-free. (It also is

('65) of NC - 06/14/13 - "Norwegian Pepper Cookies":
|I've been making these cookies since 1968 and can personally attest to their excellence.|
every flight, pilots fill out a form called a gripe sheet, which
conveys to the mechanics problems encountered with the aircraft
during the flight that need repair or correction. The mechanics read
and correct the problem, and then respond in writing on the lower
half of the form what remedial action was taken, and the pilot
reviews the gripe sheets before the next flight.
Never let it be said that ground crews and engineers lack a sense of humor!
Here are some actual logged maintenance complaints and problems as submitted by Qantas pilots and the solution recorded by maintenance engineers.
