“The walls we build around us to keep sadness out
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Few singers have ever equaled the soothing velvet tones of Jim Reeves insofar as "comfort sounds". I don't know about you, but I'm in the mood for some comfort right about now.

From the Best Dressed Girl in the Class of 1959, My Sister, Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky of NC - 04/25/14:
Thank you, Eleanor!
As you know, few things set my teeth on edge quite as much as
hearing this particular mispronounciation. However, the other
day I encounted something I had long since forgotten which both
shocked and astounded (okay, horrified) me!
Having (temporarily) run out of anything I wanted to crochet, I had taken down my copy of Chaucer's Major Poetry (aw, c'mon, you knew I was weird!) when I came across these lines in The Second Nun's Tale:
Almachius, that herde of this doynge,
So... which came first, the chicken or the egg?!?
From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 03/28/14 - "Who Knew? (#24 in a series of 25)":
|YOWZERS! Thanks, Billy!|
From Jimmy Smith ('62 / '63) of VA - 04/10/14 - "Pictures for the Day (#11 in a series of 19)":
When the power of love overcomes the love
of power, the world will know peace.
AWW - SO CUTE! Thanks, Jimmy!

Now, don’t get all excited thinking you’re going to read about chocolate papaya muffin tops or fennel sardine apricot bread. No, I’m talking about the stack of recipes I’ve clipped together and hung on the pegboard next to my work station in the King Arthur test kitchen. These are recipes I make over and over again–for potlucks, for bake sales, or for going-away lunches here at work. Or just because, after sitting for three hours at the computer, I need to bake something..."|

fears and go riding on a horse.
