House of the Rising Sun

“But there are other things than dissipation that thicken the features.
Tears, for example.”

 - Dame Rebecca West
(21 Dec 1892 - 15 Mar 1983)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Can you believe it??  We've never used this sixties classic for a Newsletter theme before!  Perhaps I refrained from using it all these years because of its, um, uplifting lyrics.....

BONUS #1 - - House of the Rising Sun - The Animals, 1964

BONUS #2 - - House of the Rising Sun - Eric Burdon and The New Animals, Oct. 17, 1998

BONUS #3 - - House of the Rising Sun - Eric Burdon, 2008

   I hadn't really seen Eric Burdon since 1964, and I was rather surprised that his appearance had, ah, changed somewhat in the last 45 years.  I thought he'd still look just the same - you know, just like the rest of us!


   Happy Birthday today to Deanna Steele Capps ('57) AND   Becky Braswell Branch ('65) of AR!

   Happy Birthday tomorrow to     Bill Campbell ('54) of VA AND Genis Bird Crowder Hornsby ('54) AND Barbara Jones ('54)!

   Happy Birthday this week to:

    From Brownie Shaffer Haracivet ('62) of VA - 04/24/09 - "View Only Site":

Dear Carol,

My site is a "view only" site with no order or contact information for now.

I'm keeping this venture small as to keep my pieces one-of-a-kind and special. Both my email address and telephone number are on the business card that I give out when interest shown.

The site has been updated as of April 20th. Please check it out again.

Thanks so much for the happy birthday wish and I cannot believe I'm 65!!! It's fun to be 65!!

   Thanks for sharing this valuable information with us, Mark!

  From Betty Brockwell McClure ('58) of VA -  04/24/09 - "Odd Animal Couples":

Hi, Everyone,

This brought tears to my eyes - it's so touching.  Hope y'all like it.


   Thanks, Betty! I couldn't seem to access your original file, so I added these two possibilities with high hopes!

  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 04/24/09 - "Will NBC be surprised?"

I checked this out before I sent it to  all of you.  According to "Truth or Fiction" this is an actual survey.  It apparently has been going on for several years though.

PLEASE – take a minute and vote.

Will MSNBC be surprised??*

Here's your chance to let the media know where the people stand on our faith in God, as a nation.

MSNBC is presently taking a poll on "In God We Trust" to stay on our American currency.

Please send this to every person you know so they can vote on this important subject.

Please do it right away, before MSNBC takes this off their web page. Poll is still open so you can vote:


This is not sent for discussion. If you agree, forward it.

By my forwarding it, you know how I feel. I'll bet this is going to be a surprise to MSNBC.

   Thank you, Joyce!

    From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 04/24/09:

Hi Miss Carol,

Lovely to hear about your outing to the base ball game. Family is so great, especially when they let you ride IN the car. I haven't achieved that yet.

I was renewing my trac phone and the young man was talking from Belize. That made me think of 
    Chip Clark and those beautiful pictures he sent "us".

Where is Chip Clark?

Linda May ' 666-never mind, that's where I live- ' 66

    WILD GIGGLES!!! Linda May, you are so funny!

   As far as I know, Chip is still in Northern Virginia, still working for the Smithsonian.

Health Education - Be Proactive About Your Heart Health
By Kevin Agarwal, Apr. 22, 2009

Your heart works hard to continuously pump blood, non-stop, to other parts of the body. Incredibly, it pumps 2000 gallons a day and beats about 100,000 beats a day! This rhythmic pumping ensures the circulation of a fresh supply of oxygen-rich blood to all organs, tissues and cells of the body.

Your heart is your lifeline, and heart health should be a priority. Certain lifestyle choices we make can have consequences for our hearts, which can also affect the functions of other important organs and tissues. For optimal health it is important that we adjust our lifestyle, and make choices to promote heart health.

Taking steps in the right direction have had positive and proven benefits for heart health. Here are some tips to help keep your heart healthy.

Taking nutritional supplements is another positive approach to maintaining heart health. If you are unsure about which nutritional supplement to use, ask your doctor for advice. Some well researched ingredients are:

Making positive changes to your lifestyle and adding a quality nutritional supplement, like CardioMatrix, can help promote a happy, healthy heart

     From the Head Flagtwirler of 1965, Janice McCain Rose of VA - 04/24/09:

Carol....please tell   Jerry ('65) and    Judy Phillips ('66 - Allen of VA) that we are most appreciative of their kind words.  Also...I think Judy MUST be either superwoman or a bionic woman of all she was able to take care of her family.....sometimes two at a time....I don't know how she did it!

We are still praying for Judy's brother....
  Monty (Phillips - '62 - of VA) whom I remember as "one of the good guys")......our NNHS family is one of a kind...of that I am sure!!!!!....Janice

   Thank you, Janice! I think the rest of us mere mortals are in awe of both of you!

    From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 04/25/09 - "   Monty Phillips ('62 - of VA)":

Hi, Carol:

Thank you for keeping us up to date regarding the condition of Monty Phillips. He is certainly in the prayers of many of the TYPHOON Nation.

Recommend Monty for the Famous Marine page on your website. Surely he can come up with a photo image in the United States Marine Corps uniform. He was a "Squared Away" Marine, always looked sharp in his uniform.

He was one of the few Marines who were not sweating at the end of a Forced March, and his uniform was still starched. Not sure how he managed to keep such a military bearing under those conditions. He is a fighter!!!

Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

   Dear Adonis, I was all set to patiently inform you that Monty was already listed with our Famous Marines, that he had been included there from the very beginning of the page six or seven years ago, long before it had grown into what it is today.  When I brought up the page, I did not see him.  I thought surely I had confused the alphabetical order as I so often do. I was aghast - no, positively mortified - to see that Monty was not there at all!

   Thank you so much for bringing this inexcusable oversight to my attention, Joe!

   While I was updating Marines, I sadly marked the passing today of Bea Arthur:

The House of the Rising Sun

(The Animals, 1964)

There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and trunk
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he's on a drunk

------ organ solo ------

Oh mother tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I'm goin' back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one
