    From Bill Black ('66) of GA - 10/07/08 - "Sunday's Daily Press":

Ahhh Carol..  Glad to share the information with the Typhoon Nation.
And as to my brilliant idea about the "Fire 'em UP, Groh" tee shirts, I'm afraid I've missed the boat on that scheme.  Wachovia turned down my start-up business loan, and my wealthy friend in Florida didn't have a box big enough to send me the cash.  
**sigh**  Looks like my rugged good looks will have to sustain me a little longer.  I'm paraphrasing Kim  Va-Va-VOOM Novak in "Picnic" here, but: **sob-sob**   "Why do people always think of me as just the pretty one?"
Okay, you all know I'm kidding, right? 

   GIGGLES! Oh, I certainly hope so!!! Thanks, Bill!

  From My #2 Daughter-in-Law, Bethany Winona Harty (Siuslaw HS, OR - '94) of OR - 10/07/08 - "         Brent (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL - '90 - of GA)":

Hey :)

He told me that there were 212 vying for 177 spots, but not that the ones who didn't make it would still be enlisted!  Goodness!

He called today and said that he got about 275 on his PT test - that's fabulous!  I think 300 is the top score.  He graduated BCT with a score of 250.   I think he'll be fine
:)  He's so awesome, and I think that the top guys there will see that too :)

Miss you guys


   Thanks, Sweet Bethany! He is indeed an awesome man, and I'm certain that you're right! Miss you, too!

From Karrin Williams Frankie (Warwick HS - '61) - 10/07/08 - "Great Songs":

This is great. Try this, everyone. Great songs.

   Thanks, Karrin! This is a favorite!

  From Ruth Ann Reece Horace ('67) of FL - 10/07/08 - "Cherokee Wisdom":

Cherokee Wisdom

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between two 'wolves' inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf wins?"

The old Cherokee simply replied ...."The one you feed."

   Thanks, Ruthie - that's good to remember!

From My Friend, Judy, of IL - 10/07/08 - "Soft Sugar Cookies":

   Oh, wait a minute!  I just remembered this Newsletter from last year contains links for Hundreds and Thousands of cookie recipesWelllll, maybe not quite that many, but a bunchalot, anyway! 

From - 10/06/08 - "10 Ways To Deal With Negative Thinking, Panic, And Paralyzing Fears ":

Motivation - 10 Ways To Deal With Negative Thinking, Panic, And Paralyzing Fears
By Peter Murphy
Oct 2, 2008

I recently heard from a friend who had been laid off at the newspaper she worked at because of the faltering economy. She didn't have many job leads and her motivation was at an all-time low. She felt that there was nothing more frightening than being a writer in an uncertain job market.

Panic and fear quickly took over; where would she go from go from there?

How would she pay her bills?

How would she cope with uncertainty?

Her mind was plagued with self-doubting, self-defeating thoughts and she began to spiral out of control, right into a dangerous state of anxiety that threatened to paralyze her into stagnant ground forever.

As she began to realize what a toll her predicament was leaving her in, it became clear to her that she needed to take action and do something to get herself out of the hole she was in.

Once she sat down and began to reflect on things, working through the paralyzing fear and the negativity that came along with the devastation of losing her dream job and having to start over from the beginning, everything started to make sense and she was on a roll!

Sometimes it takes a moment of crisis to help us refocus our thoughts and energies into what we want our professional and personal goals to be and what we need to accomplish.

The following points will help you focus and concentrate on the positive rather than dwell on the negative, motivating you to move forward into action rather than leaving you stuck in a rut.

Reading through them should help you gain some perspective into your particular situation:

1. Allow yourself to be upset and grieve if things have gone wrong

Sometimes you suffer from start-up inertia because you’re having to make a new start and you’re stubbornly holding on to the way things were.

It is perfectly normal to feel panicked, upset, angry, sad, even outraged; you wouldn't be human if you didn’t feel that way.

Take some time to get in touch with those feelings.

The night my friend got laid off she drove home, fell into bed and literally could not move for 45 minutes.

Then she called me.

I got her to get up, take a long shower, change into some comfortable clothes, and then she spent some time sat in front of the television watching 'Friends'.

Give your mind and body time to settle into the initial shock of change, whatever it may be. But focus primarily on how you feel and let those feelings out.

2. Take a DEEP BREATH!

Your mind deserves it, your body deserves it, your lungs deserve it.

Taking deep breaths improves circulation, calms anxiety and helps you focus.

Once you're done moping, take a deep breath and start to move.

3. Organize your home, organize your life

Is your house a mess? What about your room or your home office? Can you not see yourself going through the piles of papers on top of your desk? Have you looked at your bills lately and seen what you have?

If you haven't done any of these things, now is the time to do it.

There is nothing more stressful when we are in a state of panic than a living space that has no room for us to live in it.

So tackle the mess; wash those clothes, clean out that pantry, throw out the clutter, get those bills out of the way.

You'll be surprised how much more motivated you will be when you surround yourself with cleanliness and order.

4. Surround yourself with positive people

Now would be a good time to reconnect with friends that you haven't spoken to in a while, or even with the friends that you talked to just yesterday, those friends that always have an encouraging word, who are helpful and positive.

Do yourself a favor and avoid people who are always down in the dumps, or who always have something negative to say.


5. Don't confuse negativity with constructive criticism

Some friends may seem like they're helping but they're just feeding the cynicism. Conversely, friends that may appear to be negative are actually offering ways to help by sharing your experiences and showing you a better way to focus.

Listen to the people that are there for you, take what you can use, and dismiss those things that you don't want to use or that you can't use. Don't allow yourself to be brought down by it.

Take charge of your life again.

6. Have someone objective to talk to

When possible, sometimes having an objective third party to talk to and run ideas by can be tremendously helpful.

In some cases, a therapist can be of vital importance in your growth process towards finding yourself and focusing on your career and life goals. They can provide you with a perspective that is sound, rational and unbiased, while still keeping your best interests in mind.

7. Keep a journal of your progress

Write your ideas and your thoughts down and read over them the day after. You will gain some valuable perspective and insight into your own growth and where you are at.

8. Get out of the house!

Take your laptop or notebook to the local coffee shop or park, somewhere with some interaction and get out into the world! This will give you a chance to get out of the house and possibly meet some people, network and create some opportunities towards accomplishing your goals.

9. Actively look for opportunities to do the things that you love most and turn them into opportunities for you

Do you enjoy attending art shows? Love doing volunteer work? Do you like fishing with friends or going to the library or attending meetings for local organizations?

These are all things that would not only satisfy the craving for you to do something that you enjoy, but it would also present you with opportunities to network, meet people that could help you get ahead, and spend time taking care of yourself and your mental and emotional health.

10. Finally, SMILE and BELIEVE!

Easier said than done, I know. Believe me, nothing about my friend’s situation warranted a smile and some faith. But had she not kept herself smiling, it would have been so much harder to be positive and pull out of that state of anxiety.

Believe in yourself and the things that you have accomplished and remember that you are capable of achieving anything you set your mind to do.

So get your coat, get your shoes, get your smile and go out into the world!

Taking heed of these valuable insights will help you create and maintain a positive energy source in your life and keep inertia at bay. You will feel better, be more motivated and definitely more at peace.

All it takes is for you to make that first move. Don't let panic paralyze you into inertia. Anything is possible; it's up to you to make it happen!

The interesting issue with this "Newsletter" is the last sentence in the first paragraph! That's what some of us have been saying all along!!
Joe, sorry about BofA dividend :-(  Dave, which address is it; I now have 2 for you?? Also, I'm having withdrawal from not receiving your posts!! Get with it!! Edna, this is part of what we "talked" about. Chandler, send an email from work!
 It appears that the cure being applied is worse than the illness? Did I cover everything?
Hey, I know you didn't ask for this! :-)

Dividend Stock of the Day

October 6, 2008

Welcome to's Dividend Stock of the Day newsletter!

CME Group Provides only Anecdote Today

It's another topsy-turvy market today, as we see another Fed intervention (buying commercial paper) in yet another attempt to get the markets going. At this point, we are seeing so many things being implemented to prevent a recession, that they will actually make it worse than it should have been.

We are looking for anecdotes in the market to get us enthused to buy, but outside of CME Group's news (CME), there isn't much else to get excited about from a short-term perspective. The FCX/CLF names from last week's newsletters would have worked if you scaled in, as they slowly went down and then rebounded at this morning's open.

We are relentlessly looking for more dividend stock investing ideas, especially short-term ones, as we have been cutting the stock recommendations from the "Recommended List" in bunches the past few days. We will continue to look for opportunities and present them as we see fit.

As for other dividend news, the Bank of America dividend cut has made us even more selective as to the names that stay on our list. We are wondering how long General Electric (GE) will be able to keep paying its dividend, considering its current need for cash. GE's dividend yield current sits around 5.77%.

Our advice is to stay defensive and be ready to pounce as we look for opportunities.

Be sure to visit our complete recommended list of the Best Dividend Stocks as well as a detailed explanation of our ratings system here.

   Thanks, Wayne Honey - and Happy Birthday!

 From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 10/07/08 - "puns galore--letourneau, brace yourself":

Following the financial crisis on Wall Street uncertainty has now hit the banking sector in Japan.

In the last seven days Origami Bank has folded, Sumo Bank has gone belly up and Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some of its branches.

Yesterday, it was announced that Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song, while today shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived.

While Samurai Bank is soldiering on following sharp cutbacks, Ninja Bank is reported to have taken a hit, but they remain in the black.

A spokesman for Haiku Holdings was lost for words over the financial crisis, while according to rumors Nippon Bank was starting to feel the pinch.

Furthermore, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank where it is feared staff may get a raw deal.

Meanwhile Geisha Bank has bowed to the inevitable and shut.

One trader lamented: "It's all gone to Shiitake."
YIKES!!! Thanks, Joyce!

When Will I Be Loved?

Written by Phil Everly
(b. 19 Jan 1939)

(Linda Ronstadt), 1974
(b. 15 July 1946)

I've been cheated,
Been mistreated,
When will I be loved?

I've been pushed down,
I've been pushed 'round,
When will I be loved?

When I find a new man
That I want for mine,
He always breaks my heart in two.
It happens every time.

I've been made blue,
I've been lied to,
When will I be loved?

When I find a new man
That I want for mine,
He always breaks my heart in two.
It happens every time.

Oh, I've been cheated,
Been mistreated,
When will I be loved?
When will I be loved?
Tell me, when will I be loved?
