Passover Wishes

In every generation each person should feel as though she or he
were redeemed from Egypt, as it is said: 'You shall tell your children
on that day saying, It is because of what Adonai did for me when
I went free out of Egypt. For the Holy One redeemed not only
our ancestors; God redeemed us with them.'

- The Hagaddah

        From Sydney Dearing ('56) of TN - 03/29/10 - "Haircut Memories":

Hi Carol,
I thought this might qualify for your new random childhood memories page.
  Years after the attached picture was taken, whenever Mom showed it, nobody would believe it was me. It is a hand tinted studio portrait. Mom had resisted all attempts to cut my hair up to this point. She didn't want to cut off my blond curls. She finally realized that she would have to consent to it sooner or later but she insisted that she have a formal picture taken before she would allow it. She said I was about one and a half years old at the time, too young to remember this incident but I do remember going to the barber shop with Dad when I was a little older.

Back then, the barbershop was kind of a gathering place where men would sit around and talk, both before and after getting their hair trimmed (kind of like on the Andy Griffith Show). I always felt kind of special being in there with the men and older boys. Dad was always friendly and outgoing and everybody knew him. Whenever we walked in someone would always say "Here comes big Syd and little Syd." Even later when I grew to be taller than he was he was still big Syd and I was still little Syd. When it was my turn to climb up in the big chair, the barber would bring out his special seat for little kids and would lay it across the arms of the chair. I liked climbing up on the seat and having the big sheet tied around my neck but what I liked best was when the barber pumped the handle and made the chair go way up in the air so he could reach my hair. When he was finished he would spin the chair around a couple of times and stop it so I could see myself in the mirror. Then he would ask me if I thought it was okay. Dad told me I would always grin and say "Yes sir." I knew my manners and always said "yes sir" and "yes ma'am" and "thank you."

   OOOH, it most certainly does, Sydney! Thanks so much! - brand new page!

   And who could blame your mama for not cutting those beautiful blond curls?? What a precious little baby you were!


     From Me ('65) of IL - 03/29/10 - "Class of 1968 Updates":

   For her birthday,    Elizabeth Tedder Nunnally ('65 and '68) of VA sent me a copy of the excellent reunion booklet prepared for their 40-Year Reunion. Thanks again, Elizabeth!

   With the help of this booklet, I was able to start on the updates for the Class of 1968.  I'm not finished, of course, but you're all accustomed to that, right?!?

 - brand new page, about 1/3 complete (this class is HUGE!)


        From David Whitley ('67) of VA - 03/29/10 - "This is good":

Now don’t turn this off – watch it til the end – it’s not what you first expect

   David, you gorgeous creature, where do you find these outrageous things?!? Thank you so much!


      From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 03/28/10 - ":: Monday ::":

Mesmerizing and a good song selection, as it's calm enough to not distract from the visual stimulation.


Leafage And Rootage

American President Woodrow Wilson once pointed out that "a man's rootage is more important than his leafage." What others see are the leaves, the outside. What they can't see are the roots, the values and principles that ground a person. A happy and fulfilled life grows from a good system of roots.

No one believed in the solid "rootage" of President Jimmy Carter more than his own mother "Miss Lillian," as she was fondly called. She was aware of her son's reputation for honesty, which had become a topic of curiosity among many politicians and even reporters. During a 1986 speech at the University of Tennessee, Jody Powell told a story about a television reporter who grilled Miss Lillian on this topic.

"Is it true," asked the reporter, "that your son doesn't lie? Can you tell me he has never told a lie?"

"Well, I reckon he might have told a little white lie now and then," replied Miss Lillian.

The reporter spotted the opening. "I thought you said he didn't lie!" she exclaimed. "Are you telling me that white lies aren't as bad as black lies? Just what do you mean by a white lie?"

"Well," drawled Miss Lillian, "do you remember when you came in this morning and I told you how nice you looked and how glad I was to see you..?"

Those people who care about strong and principled inner lives leave an important mark on the world. They actually live from the inside out. Their inner convictions guide their actions. Their inner principles govern their lives. It's like roots which are sunk deep into lasting values and sustain the tree through whatever hard times may come along.

What does it mean to have good roots? I think it means to be strong enough and healthy enough to do whatever you truly want to do. It means to be strong enough, at least most of the time, to give your best to the world.

I would like to have roots that grow deep and strong. I would like a system of roots that could give me:
enough strength to forgive those who hurt me;

enough confidence to overcome any amount of fear;

enough courage to accept whatever obstacles life throws my way;

enough compassion to love even the unlovable;

enough faith that nothing can shatter my peace of mind.

If I grow good roots, I don't need to worry about the leafage.

From ArcaMax Jokes - 03/29/10:

Drawing the Line

A man who was unemployed for several months gets a job with Public Works painting lines down the center of rural roads. The supervisor tells him he is on probation and that he must stay at or above the set average of 2 miles per day to remain employed. The man agrees to the conditions and starts the next day.

The supervisor checks and finds the man completed 4 miles. "Great," he thought, "this man will work out." The next day he finds the man only did 2 miles but the supervisor thought, "well he is still at the average and I don't want him to get discouraged."

The third day however the man only did one mile and the Boss thought, "I need to talk to him." The boss pulls the new employee in and says, "Son, you were doing great. The first day you did four miles and the second day two miles, but yesterday you only did one mile. Why? Is there a problem? An injury, equipment failure, anything keeping you from meeting the two mile minimum?"

The man replied, "I keep getting farther and farther from the bucket."

Jerusalem of Gold


The air of the mountains is as clear as wine

And the fragrance of the pine trees

Is lifted upon the evening breeze

With the ringing of the bells


And in the deep sleep of the tree and the stone

Held captive in a dream

The city which sits alone

And in her heart, a wall


Jerusalem of gold

And of copper and of light

For all of your songs

I am the harp


How the water cisterns have dried up

The city square is empty

Nobody goes up to the Temple Mount

In the Old City


And in the caves of the rocks

Winds howl

And no one goes down to the Dead Sea

Upon the Jericho Road


Jerusalem of gold...


Although I come to sing to you today

And to tie crowns upon you

I am less than the youngest of your sons

And the last of the sweet singers


For your name singes the lips

Like the kiss of the serpent

If I forget thee, oh Jerusalem

She is completely golden


Jerusalem of gold...


We have returned to the water cisterns

To the marketplace and the square

A shofar calls out on the Temple Mount

In the Old City


And in the caves in the rocks

A thousand suns shine forth

And again we will go down to the Dead Sea

Upon the Jericho Road


Jerusalem of gold...
