Richard Rodgers' 106th Birthday

"What's wrong with sweetness and light? It's been around quite awhile."

 - Richard Rodgers
(28 June 1902 - 30 Dec 1979)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   I really didn't feel like doing a Newsletter today, but I just couldn't bring myself to letting this day pass, either.  I'm glad I persevered. - (705 kb MP3 version - "No Other Love") - (regular version - "Do Re Mi") - ("If I Loved You")

   I wanted different music for this year, and I realized that Our Wizard of Wonderment,         Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA, had already located it for me years ago for use elsewhere on the site.


   This song is a very emotional favorite of mine on many different levels.  I didn't see the play, but I absolutely loved the movie - and especially this song - when I saw Carousel as a nine-year-old.  These words and this music sustained me during and after my beloved father's funeral       (the late Robert Buckley - John Marshall HS - '25)  when I was twelve years old. A year later, five other girls and I - Becky Goolsby ('64) and Brenda Smith (Warwick HS - '65) on first soprano;    Rose Woodard ('65) and I on second soprano; and Paulette Westphal (Hampton HS - '64) and Bettyrene Cook (Hampton HS - '64) on alto - sang a three-part Fred Waring arrangement of it in Trinity Methodist Church's Antiphonal Choir. Hearing it again now could hardly have come at a better time.

   Thank you again, David!

   This opinion may or may not be shared by many, but I personally feel that one of the indications of a truly remarkable piece of music is how well it lends itself to various interpretations.  These twelve bonus selections are certainly varied.  Following the movie clip, they're roughly in alphabetical order.  You may not enjoy them all, but there should be something for everyone.

BONUS #1 - - Carousel Waltz and You'll Never Walk Alone, 1956

BONUS #2 - - You'll Never Walk Alone - Ross Aldred with the Twelve Irish Tenors

BONUS #3 - - You'll Never Walk Alone - Celtic - Barcelona

BONUS #6 - - You'll Never Walk Alone - Gerry and the Pacemakers

BONUS #7 - - You'll Never Walk Alone - Katherine Jenkins

BONUS #8 - - You'll Never Walk Alone - Patti Labelle at the Apollo, 1985

1.       From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 06/27/08, 1:59 PM:

Thank you. I can be taken off your prayer roll. Emily will need another surgery, but other than pain for another 6 weeks, I will live. Thank you for all who prayed for me! I was so afraid my children would be left without a mother.. plus I want to live! I am finally starting over after almost 26 years of being married. I would like to kiss a few princes before I die. Know any??? The non relative kind, of course! ;-)

   SUPER-DE-DUPER!!! Thanks for letting us know, Shari!

2.  Jerry Allen ('65) of VA:

  From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 06/27/08, 5:55 PM - "Update on Jerry":

Dear Hearts!
Here is the latest on my Jerry:
Tuesday, we had an appointment with the urologist.  Results:  Prostate biopsy shows "All Clear".
Tuesday afternoon, Jerry had an ultrasound on the arm that was being treated for a blood clot.
Thursday, Jerry had a PET Scan.
Friday, we met with the oncologist and he told us that the blood clot is dissolved and Jerry can come off the Coumadin. Great!
The PET Scan showed that Jerry is in remission.  He is to be checked in a month and a Cat Scan in October to follow up and monitor.
The nagging cough he has had for several weeks is due to an infection and he will begin antibiotics tonight.
God has blessed us with many praying friends and family members, His mercy and healing.  Praise God!!!!!!
Thank you all for your love, concern, and help.  We can't  express enough how we feel about the attention we have received.
Carol, you may take Jerry off the prayer list to save room for others, but please, let's all just keep praying for each other.
We love you guys!
God Bless You All!

   What thrilling news! Thank you so much, dearest Judy! Please give your darling husband a big hug and a kiss from all of us!

    From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX - 06/27/08 - "Loving husband":

   Thanks, Glenn!

  From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 06/27/08 - "Pastor's Business Card ":

It surely gave me a smile!
Pastor's Business Card

A new pastor was visiting in the homes of his members.

At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door.

Therefore, he took out a business card and wrote 'Revelation 3:20' on the back of it and stuck it in the door.

When the offering was taken up the following Sunday, he found that his card had been returned. Added to it was this message, 'Genesis 3;10. Reaching for his Bible to check out the passage, he broke up in loud laughter.

Revelation 3:20 begins 'Behold, I stand at the door and knock.'

Genesis 3:10 reads, 'I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid for I was naked.'

Remember when the funniest jokes were the clean ones?

They still are! Pass it on

'A cheerful heart is good medicine' (Prov. 17:22)

   How delightful! Thanks, Judy!

      From Me ('65) of NC - 06/28/08 - "HOW TO FORWARD E-MAIL APPROPRIATELY":


A friend who is a computer expert received the following directly from a system administrator for a corporate system. It is an excellent message that ABSOLUTELY applies to ALL of us who send e-mails. 
Please read the short letter below, even if you're sure you already follow proper procedures.
Please share it with your email buddies!
Do you really know how to forward e-mails? Most of us DO NOT know how. 
Do you wonder why you get viruses or junk mail? Do you hate it?
Every time you forward an e-mail, there is information left over from the people who got the message before you -- namely their e-mail addresses & names. As the messages get forwarded along, the list of addresses builds, and builds, and builds, and all it takes is for some poor sap to get a virus, and his or her computer can send that virus to every email address that has come across his computer. Or, someone can take all of those addresses and sell them or send junk mail to them in the hopes that you will go to the site and he will make five cents for each hit. That's right, all of that inconvenience over a nickel! 

How do you stop it? Well, there are several easy steps:

(1) When you forward an e-mail, DELETE all of the other addresses that appear in the body of the message (at the top). That's right, DELETE them. Highlight them and delete them, backspace them, cut them, whatever you know how to. It only takes a second. You MUST click the 'Forward' button first and then you will have full editing capabilities against the body and headers of the message. If you don't hit the forward button first you won't have full editing functions . I particularly dislike having to scroll through 200 Email addresses before I get to the email.

(2) Whenever you send an e-mail to more than one person, do NOT use the "To:" or "Cc:" fields for adding e-mail addresses.. Always use the BCC: (blind carbon copy) field for listing the e-mail addresses. This is the way the people you send to will only see their own e-mail address. 

If you don't see your "BCC:" option click on where it says To: and your address list will appear. Highlight the address and choose BCC: and that's it, it's that easy. When you send to BCC: your message will automatically say 'Undisclosed Recipients' in the 'TO:' field of the people who receive it. 

That way you aren't sharing all those addresses with every Tom, Dick or Harry.

(3) Remove any 'FW:' in the subject line. You can re-name the subject if you wish or even fix spelling. 

This one is very important - please read and heed 

(4) ALWAYS hit your Forward button from the actual e-mail you are reading. Ever get those e-mails that you have to open 10 pages to read the one page with the information on it? By Forwarding from the actual page you wish someone to view, you stop them from having to open many e-mails just to see what you sent. These are the ones that often end up having picked up a virus from somebody. This is really important!

(5) Have you ever gotten an email that is a petition? It states a position and asks you to add your name and address and to forward it to 10 or 15 people or your entire address book. The email can be forwarded on and on and can collect thousands of names and email addresses. 
A FACT: The completed petition is actually worth a couple of bucks to a professional spammer because of the wealth of valid names and email addresses contained therein. If you want to support the petition, send it as your own personal letter to the intended recipient. Your position may carry more weight as a personal letter than a laundry list of names and email address on a petition. (Actually, if you think about it, who's supposed to send the petition in to whatever cause it supports? And don't believe the ones that say that the email is being traced, it just ain't so!)
(6) One of the main ones I hate is the ones that say that something like, 'Send this email to 10 people and you'll see something great run across your screen.' Or, sometimes they'll just tease you by saying something really cute will happen. 
IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN!!!!!  (Trust me, I'm still seeing some of the same ones that I waited on 10 years ago!) I don't let the bad luck ones scare me either, they get trashed. (Could this be why I haven't won the lottery??) 
(7) Before you forward an Amber Alert, or a Virus Alert, or some of the other ones floating around nowadays, check them out before you forward them. Most of them are junk mail that's been circling the net for Years! 
Just about everything you receive in an email that is in question can be checked out at Snopes. Just go to http://www.snopes. com/
It's really easy to find out if it's real or not. If it's not, please don't pass it on. 
So please, in the future, let's stop the junk mail and the viruses.

You'll Never Walk Alone

Music by Richard Rodgers
(28 June 1902 - 30 Dec 1979)

Words by Oscar Hammerstein II
(12 July 1895 - 23 Aug 1960)

~ from the 1945 Stage Musical and 1956 Movie "Carousel"

(Shirley Jones)
(b. 31 Mar 1934)

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone
