10/05/16 - NNHS Newsletter - You Forgot All the Words

“Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly
walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night. I miss you like hell.”

- Edna St. Vincent Millay
(22 Feb 1892 - 19 Oct 1950)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

    It's Frank again - with another fine sad love song. There's no midi file for it (if indeed your computer even plays midi files anymore), so just enjoy Frank's beautiful voice.

  From My Daughter, Adrienne Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL) of NC - 10/05/16, 1:04 AM - "Hurricane Matthew":


  RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Areas of central North Carolina still recovering from flooding last week — such as Cumberland County — could expect more than 5 inches of rain if Hurricane Matthew takes its projected path, the National Weather Service warned on Tuesday.

The Raleigh weather office issued a breakdown of what various areas of central NC could get during a hit by Matthew along the NC coast late Friday and into Saturday and Sunday.

Areas around Fayetteville could have “severe impacts” that could lead to “significant threat to life and property,” the forecasters said.

Wind gusts of over 50 mph are possible, which could result in downed trees, damage to homes and “prolonged” power outages, officials said.

That area includes parts of Harnett, Johnston, Moore and Wilson counties and all of Cumberland, Hoke, Wayne and Sampson counties.

Meanwhile, in a large swath of area closer to Raleigh, forecasters said 2-5 inches of rain was possible with localized flooding and wind gusts of 30 to 45 mph.

“Numerous downed trees and power outages” would be possible, forecasters said about an area around Raleigh.

Further north and west, forecasters said that heavy rain could be expected with wind gusts up to 35 mph and some downed trees.

   YOWZERONI-RINI-ROONI! Thank you, Adrienne!

From - 10/04/16:

I'd been working on my business degree for about a year when I finally got to take a popular finance course. I went to the bookstore to buy the text and was shocked to find out that it would cost me $96. I asked how much it was worth if I sold it back at the end of the semester.

"You'll get $24," said the clerk.

"This is insane," I protested as I wrote out the check.

"I know," replied the clerk sympathetically. "I've always thought that a person who buys a book for $96 and then sells it back for $24 should fail the course."

You Forgot All the Words

Words by Bernie Wayne (06 Mar 1919 - 18 Apr 1993)

Music by  E. H. Jay (Eve J. Zeserson)

Recorded by Frank Sinatra (12 Dec 1915 – 14 May 1998), 1956

Love was like a song
A lovely melody
Our hearts would sing along
In perfect harmony
But you forgot all the words
While I still remember the tune

Each time our lips would cling
I heard a serenade
Of love and youth and spring
Forever to be played
But you forgot all the words
While I still remember the tune

We used to dance
Instead of walk
We used to sing
Instead of talk
That used to be
Only the start of the blues for me

But songs are funny things
They never really die
And so my hope still clings
That someday you will try
To just remember the words
For I still remember the tune

When lonely lights are lit
And midnight songs will start
Our song I must admit
Still fills my hopeful heart
So please remember the words
For I still remember the tune
