10/06/10 - NNHS Newsletter - Te Deum Laudamus

“O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the crock of our salvation.
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.
The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.
O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker.
For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand...”

- Psalms 95: 1-7

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

    Today's Newsletter is in honor of all my fellow Medieval history buffs out there, and I'm sure we are legion.

    Yes, I was reading an old college textbook of mine the other day, and it seems that the Siege of Damietta took place on June 6, 1249, which was exactly 761 years and four months ago today.  (Oh, c'mon, you knew I was weird from the git-go.)

   And after they landed, the Crusaders sang this very hymn.  I am not making this up.

   As this hymn is so very, very old, it has been reset to music many times by many different composers.  Perhaps I just wasn't "holding my mouth right," but I was unable to locate a midi file of the Gregorian chant I wanted to attach, so just listen to these glorious bonus videos, and you'll catch the general idea.

BONUS #1 - - Te Deum - 5th Century Monastic Chant (Solemn)

BONUS #2 - - Te Deum Laudamus, Gregoriano, T. Simplex; SCHOLA GREGORIANA MEDIOLANENSIS, Giovanni Vianini, Milano.It.

BONUS #3 - - The Te Deum chanted by the schola of the FSSP on the occasion of Fr. Roberto Cano FSSP 1st Mass at St. Francis.



Guy, A Knight: Letter from the Sixth Crusade, 1249:


Rolls Series, M. Paris. Chron. maj. VI, pp 155 ff. Latin. [Another translation of this letter can be found in Matthew Paris (Bohn edition), III, 411 ff]

From Damietta, 1249.

The king, having then entered the city in the midst of cries of joy, went immediately into the temple of the Saracens to pray and thank God, whom he regarded as the author of what had taken place. Before eating, all the Christians, weeping sweet and sacred tears of joy, and led by the legate, solemnly sang that hymn of the angels, the Te Deum Laudamus.


The Te Deum (also known as Te Deum Laudamus, Ambrosian Hymn or A Song of the Church) is an early Christian hymn of praise. The title is taken its opening Latin words, rendered literally as "Thee, O God, we praise".

The hymn remains in regular use in the Roman Catholic Church in the Office of Readings found in the Liturgy of the Hours, and in thanksgiving to God for a special blessing such as the election of a pope, the consecration of a bishop, the canonization of a saint, a religious profession, the publication of a treaty of peace, a royal coronation, etc.....

Authorship is traditionally ascribed to Saints Ambrose and Augustine, on the occasion of the latter's baptism by the former in AD 387. The petitions at the end of the hymn (beginning Salvum fac populum tuum) are a selection of verses from the book of Psalms, appended subsequently to the original hymn.

The hymn follows the outline of the Apostles' Creed, mixing a poetic vision of the heavenly liturgy with its declaration of faith. Naming God immediately, the hymn proceeds to name all those who praise and venerate God, from the hierarchy of heavenly creatures to those Christian faithful already in heaven to the Church spread throughout the world. The hymn then returns to its creedal formula, naming Christ and recalling his birth, suffering, and glorification. At this point the hymn turns to the subjects declaiming the praise, both the Church in general and the singer in particular, asking for mercy on past sins, protection from future sin, and the hoped-for reunification with the elect.


  From Jamey Douglas Bacon ('66) of VA - 10/03/10 and 10/05/10:

Hey Carol,

I wanted to let you know that I finally had to have my leg amputated. Things are really rough right now but I think about you and all my old friends often. Hope to see some of you when I get out of here. [Riv.Rehab] 

  Patty Dempsey Gibbs ('66) comes to see me quite often and runs many errands for me. She has been a great help. I hope that I will be able to run some of those errands myself someday soon.

It's not fun being like this, but I am not sick anymore, so that is a good thing.

Love ya, Jamey

    Dear Jamey, amidst bouts of crying, I've been trying to think of something wonderfully comforting to say to you. If those words exist, I cannot find them. I can only say that I'm so very sorry. You're in our thoughts and prayers.

     From Me ('65) of IL - 10/04/05 - Repeated from

  If you don't know what I'm going to say next, you don't know me very well.

   Last year (2004) just before the reunion, I tried to be subtle and sensitive and allude to this as gently as possible. 
This year (2005) I cannot afford to be so coy.

   Have you not noticed how very quickly one of us can be gone?  If you're thinking of waiting until "next time" to see
everyone, look around.  "Next time", either they - or you yourself - may not be around to partake of that opportunity.
How many have we lost this year alone??  You count them all; I cannot bear to do so.

   If you can't attend, you can't attend, and that's that.  But if you're vacillating about whether or not to come, if you're
just "thinking about it ", and haven't quite decided - and especially if your mind is filling with a lot of nonsense such
as, "I'm too fat.  I don't want to see everybody looking like this" - please let me point out to you that your friends love
you, and they don't care how you look, they just want to see you again, and everything else is pure balderdash!!!

   As I can't find the exact quotation, I cannot find the exact date, but I believe it was about sixty-five years ago when
Ashley Montagu
said, "The greatest forces of evil in this world are those which seek to keep a baby from its
mother's breast." 

   While I wholeheartedly agree with that, I would extend it to read, "The next greatest forces of evil are those
which seek to keep people from their friends by inflicting lies of self-doubt upon them."

   And let me also remind you what       the Head Cheerleader of 1965, Pam Smith Arnold
of VA
said (ten) years ago, which I have preserved on the Reunion Page, lest we forget:

 I think the joy of going to a class reunion is that EVERYONE really knows
 how old you are and you don't have to try to pretend a thing.

The other interesting phenomenon that I have experienced is
that no matter what a person looks like now,
I still tend to see them as looking like the same people I knew in 1965.

Where else can you go and have 35 years shed?  Can't wait to see everyone!!!

- Pam (Smith) Tomczyk ('65) of IL - 09/08/00
{now Pam Smith Arnold ('65) of VA}
just prior to 1965's 35th Reunion of October 27/28, 2000

   I might get off this soapbox soon - but don't count on it.

Vote every day for Grace. Thanks.

   Oh, Laura is your daughter, Norris! Well, that makes it all the more important! When I tried to vote for Grace again today, I noticed the site was trying to pull a switcheroo on me. It tried to persuade me to vote for the wrong Grace!  OH, NO!

Grace is #1 in pet of the month:

and #3 in pet of the year: 

  WOWZERONI!!! That's fabulous, Norris! 

   Vote early, vote often (or at least cast your allotted daily vote) - and don't drop the ball now!

Thanks so much for running the announcement of our 62nd Reunion Anniversary for the NNHS classes of February and June 1948 held October 2nd and 3rd.  It was a great success and we had a wonderful time.  We could only kick our heels up so high being in 80 + - range.

   From Fred Field (June '45) of CA to       Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 10/05/10 - "RE: Shackelford Auto Company":

Hello Fred, Tue. Oct. 5, 2010 copy to Carol Harty

My Feb. 1946 Anchor has this ad on page 66:

Shackelford Auto Co., Dodge, Plymouth, Dodge Trucks

Dependable Used Cars

329 -41 25th St.

I have a very faint memory of going there, probably about 1935. It was about when I was first allowed to go to a movie without parent -- but only with a friend who had been pre-screened as reliable.

The friend in that case was Joseph Charles Holloway, Jr. (J. C.). His father was a salesman at Shackelford and after the movie we went over to Shackelford and walked up an auto ramp to the second floor. J. C. Sr. gave me a tour of all the latest model cars.

The Holloway's lived in the 100 block of Pear Avenue, on the E. C. Co. side, so J. C. went to George Wythe School. He always knew everything about cars, especially the virtues of the make his dad sold. When my father bought a 1938 Chevrolet J. C. told me that the choice was a terrible mistake. By then his father had begun selling Fords - "the best car in the world."

J. C. Jr. transferred from Hampton H.S. to NNHS and graduated in the class of June 1943. Shortly after that he went into the Army and I don't think I ever saw him after that. The Holloway family eventually moved to Florida.

Nostalgic best, Fred
Fred W. Field
Fullerton, CA

   Thank you so much, Fred!

From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 10/05/10 - "Boogie Woogie":

Can you sit still through this one?  Loved it!

Boogie Woogie - This is how it was done........ WOW!!!!!
You'll love this's awesome!   

These two are both good but the male dancer is outstanding . . . he never moves his shoulders compared to what his feet and knees are doing.  This pianist is from Switzerland and he plays some of the best Boogie Woogie anywhere. He is so BIG over there, they hold a week-long Boogie Woogie contest every year and all the best players in the world are invited. In this video he is joined by the 2 amazing dancers...  

The male dancer even has a forties haircut.  Turn up the volume, watch and give it a listen! If you experience any trouble tapping your foot to the beat, you had better hurry and schedule an appointment with your physician. 


   WOWZERS!!! Thanks, Norris!

      From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of IL - 10/04/10 - "Angels Flight":

Please watch from beginning to end—the world should hear this. This video is about the making of the song, "Angels Flight" and the video is short enough with the song being played at the end.  It kind of gave me goose bumps.  Give it a whirl and see how it affects y'all.

     Thanks, Dools!

From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 10/05/10 - "Nymphomaniac Convention":

Nymphomaniac Convention

A man boarded an airplane and took his seat. As he settled in, he glanced up and saw the most beautiful woman boarding the plane.. He soon realized she was heading straight towards his seat .. As fate would have it, she took the seat right beside his.

Eager to strike up a conversation he blurted out, "Business trip or pleasure?"

She turned, smiled and said, "Business. I'm going to the Annual Nymphomaniacs of America Convention in Boston."

He swallowed hard. Here was the most gorgeous woman he had ever seen sitting next to him, and she was going to a meeting of nymphomaniacs. Struggling to maintain his composure, he calmly asked, "What's your business role at this convention?"

"Lecturer," she responded. "I use information that I have learned from my personal experiences to debunk some of the popular myths about sexuality."

"Really?" he said. "And what kind of myths are there?"

"Well," she explained, "one popular myth is that African-American men are the most well-endowed of all men, when in fact it is the Native American Indian who is most likely to possess that trait. Another popular myth is that Frenchmen are the best lovers, when actually it is men of Jewish descent who are the best. I have also discovered that the lover with absolutely the best stamina is the Southern Redneck."

Suddenly the woman became a little uncomfortable and blushed.

"I'm sorry," she said, "I shouldn't really be discussing all of this with you. I don't even know your name."

"Tonto," the man said, "Tonto Goldstein, but my friends call me Bubba."

      Norris Sweetie, I was eating my yogurt snack when I read this, and I laughed so hard I nearly choked myself! Thanks for the crazy wild chuckle!

From - 10/04/10 - "Core Confidence":

Empower Up and Win From the Inside Out!

By Valencia Ray, MD

Confidence from my point of view is about letting go of the stories that block the light and power that you already are. It is about, as Robert Browning said:

"There is an inmost center in us all, where truth abides in fullness;....and, to know, rather consists in opening out a way where the imprisoned splendor may escape, then in effecting entry for a light supposed to be without."

We've had it backwards for so long. From the time we were children, we have been conditioned, via ignorance, to look for our security, love and self-esteem outside of ourselves. We look around the landscape and compare our worth relative to others, based on external values of gender, race, culture, class and even clothing.

These are all just judgments made from a wounded ego, the storytelling part of the brain. These are the ways of victim consciousness and it is totally disempowering. The confidence that I speak of comes from "core confidence" which is an inside job.

I can sense though intuitively and from listening to others that these changing times of ours are shifting this tide. I have a sense that there is a sense of restlessness. A growing number of people are looking for some new answers to some old questions such as:

1. Who am I?
2. Why am I here?
3. Why do I believe what I believe; what is life about?

For the most part, the stories of who we think we are were written from a foundation rooted in FEAR - the fiction accepted as Truth when in reality it was only a way of interpretation, a story that covered over the Light of our being, our Authentic Self. The challenge is that if it is "true" for you, it will create your experience via your nervous system.

In our brains, we have an area called "autobiographical memory" which via our conclusions and thus formed perceptions, we create a "Mental Me" - the story of who we think we are. Be aware through, that as a whole, these deeply rooted conclusions were formed by you unconsciously often before the age of seven when you were most illogical and a bundle of shifting emotions.

In other words, who you think you are was formed in the mind/brain of a child who still believed in the boogeyman under the bed. The way to empower up, truly empower yourself, is to realize that you are more than your stories and you are more than "only human". This is the starting point. You must open your mind to new ideas from science and learn to trust your own intuitive guidance.

Then as you learn how to retrain your brain, via updating your information, and opening your mind to use energy awareness and tools that can go to the root of these stories. You can eliminate the "blind spots" that are covering your inner splendor, that "Magnificent Me" instead of continuing to look for your power and love in all the wrong places.

This works and the change can be made as fast as you are willing to commit and evolve. This is not about "fixing" yourself for you are not "broken". It is about awakening and remembering, getting in touch with your spirit, your Authentic Self, your purpose and having the courage, the "Core Confidence" to release the cellular memory, the energetic stories that are hanging out in your nervous system.

Yes, you have/are an inner spirit, yet you live in a physical body. Learning how to operate your own brain and mind consciously is the door to empowering yourself for lasting change, spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically. These stories limit everything from business success to the level of good health you experience. You can only accomplish this sort of lasting change with awareness from the inside out. What do you think?

The glorious company of the Apostles : praise thee.
The goodly fellowship of the Prophets : praise thee.
The noble army of Martyrs : praise thee.
The holy Church throughout all the world :
doth acknowledge thee;
The Father : of an infinite Majesty;
Thine honourable, true : and only Son;
Also the Holy Ghost : the Comforter.
Thou art the King of Glory : O Christ.
Thou art the everlasting Son : of the Father.
When thou tookest upon thee to deliver man :
thou didst not abhor the Virgin's womb.
When thou hadst overcome the sharpness of death :
thou didst open the Kingdom of Heaven to all believers.
Thou sittest at the right hand of God : in the glory of the Father.
We believe that thou shalt come : to be our Judge.
We therefore pray thee, help thy servants :
whom thou hast redeemed with thy precious blood.
Make them to be numbered with thy Saints : in glory everlasting.
O Lord, save thy people :
and bless thine heritage.
Govern them : and lift them up for ever.
Day by day : we magnify thee;
And we worship thy Name : ever world without end.
Vouchsafe, O Lord : to keep us this day without sin.
O Lord, have mercy upon us : have mercy upon us.
O Lord, let thy mercy lighten upon us :
as our trust is in thee.
O Lord, in thee have I trusted :
let me never be confounded.
