Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars

Listen! the wind is rising,
and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves!

- Humbert Wolfe
(05 Jan 1885 - 05 Jan 1940)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   This is a lovely song, though I don't know how quiet the night or how bright the stars will be where you are!

Andy Williams recorded the song with English lyrics, reaching #92 in the Billboard Hot 100 and #18 in the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart in 1965.[1]

No matter which girl he brought home, this bachelor had disapproval from his mother. A friend advised him:

"Find a girl just like your mother, then she is bound to like her."

Thus the bachelor tried and finally found the "GIRL."

So he told his friend: "As advised by you, I found a girl who looked, talked, walked and even cooked just like my mother. As you predicted, my mother loved her!"

"So" asked the friend, "What happened?"

"My father disapproved of her!" replied the bachelor.

Conflicting Proverbs

Actions speak louder than words.
The pen is mightier than the sword.

Look before you leap.
He who hesitates is lost.

Many hands make light work.
Too many cooks spoil the broth.

A silent man is a wise one.
A man without words is a man without thoughts.

Beware of Greeks bearing gifts.
Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

Clothes make the man.
Don't judge a book by its cover.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Better safe than sorry.

The bigger, the better.
The best things come in small packages.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Out of sight, out of mind.

What will be, will be.
Life is what you make it.

Cross your bridges when you come to them.
Forewarned is forearmed.

What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
One man's meat is another man's poison.

With age comes wisdom.
Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings come all wise sayings.

The more, the merrier.
Two's company; three's a crowd.

The squeaky wheel gets the grease.
Silence is golden.

It's no wonder we're all confused.


Wisdom Tip--Betrayal

If someone betrays you once, it is his fault.
If he betrays you twice, it is your fault.

~ Annari Prins


Bug & Insect Eradicator
Grow "Tansy" an inedible herb in your back yard. Bring in a bouquet. Place in container. It will dry. Leave it all year. No bugs, no spiders. Not dangerous to animals.


Health Tip

Best time to exercise?

The Long Island Jewish Medical Center experts say that the ideal time to exercise is late afternoon.

Your natural body rhythms cause your lungs to work 20% more efficiently between 4:00p.m. and 5:00 p.m.


Handy Hint

Hint 1: Don't you hate when your deodorant leaves powdery marks on your clothes? Ugh!

Well, say no to that! A baby wipe works well to lift those hard-to-remove stains. Just lightly scrub it away using one baby wipe. Yes, it really is that easy.


A Simple Philosophy

I have a simple philosophy.
Fill what's empty.
Empty what's full.
Scratch where it itches.

~Alice Roosevelt Longworth~ (1884-1980)

Cruising Is NOT Cool

Good advice below!!

A lady's story:

I had a wreck a couple of weeks ago and totaled our Lincoln Town Car. I learned a lesson I'd like to pass on to you.

I hydroplaned on Hwy 135 between Gladewater and Kilgore, Texas. I was not hurt, just emotionally rattled! I know the Lord was with me.

You may know this already, but the highway patrolman told me that you should NEVER drive in the rain with your cruise control on.

He said if you did and hydroplaned (which I did) that when your tires were off the road your car would accelerate to a high rate of speed (which it did).

You don't have much, if any control when you hydroplane, but you are totally in the hands of God when the car accelerates. I took off like I was in an airplane.

I'm so thankful I made it through that ordeal. Please pass the word around about not using cruise control when the pavement is wet or icy.

The highway patrolman said this should be on the sun visor with the warning about airbags.

The only person I've found out who knew this (besides the patrolman) was a man who had a similar accident and totaled his car.

Be careful out there!

from The Mountain:
Most stories circulating around the Internet about supposed safety hazards are false. The facts of this one are real even if the story is not.

Driving at high speeds on wet pavement with the cruise control engaged can cause an automobile to hydroplane and could result in a deadly accident.

This has been confirmed by sources ranging from insurance companies to state police to the National Automobile Dealers Association, which bluntly advises: "Never use cruise control when road conditions are slippery." I checked this on

"Your cruise control does not know the difference in road surface types," explains South Dakota Highway Patrol Trooper Mike Block on his agency's Website. "This makes having it activated dangerous because it will not allow you to slow down during a skid and you will continually accelerate. This does not allow you, the driver, to regain control of the vehicle."

The experts agree: If the highway is wet or icy, turn off your cruise control, otherwise you're putting your own and others' lives in danger.

The next time you are driving in wet weather, remember this MountainWings Moment and don't use your cruise control.

Pass it on to someone you care about.

   Thank you so much, Shari!

From - 10/09/13:
A distraught older woman was looking at herself in the mirror and crying. Her voice shook as she said to her husband, "I'm so old. I'm so fat. I look horrible. I really need a compliment."

Her husband, determined to quickly give his beloved the comfort she needed, exclaimed, "WOW, do you have good eyesight!"

Corcovado / Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars

Written by
Antonio Carlos Jobim
(25 Jan 1927 – 08 Dec 1994)

English lyrics written by Gene Lees, 1962
(b. 08 Feb 1928)

Um cantinho, um violão
Esse amor, uma canção
Pra fazer feliz a quem se ama

Muita calma pra pensar
E ter tempo pra sonhar
Da janela vê-se o Corcovado
O Redentor, que lindo!

Quero a vida sempre assim
Com você perto de mim
Até o apagar da velha chama

E eu que era triste
Descrente desse mundo
Ao encontrar você eu conheci
O que é felicidade, meu amor.
Quiet nights of quiet stars, quiet chords from my guitar
Floating on the silence that surrounds us.
Quiet thoughts and quiet dreams, quiet walks by quiet streams.
Climbing hills where lovers go to watch the world below together.

We will live eternally in this mood of reverie
Away from all the earthly cares around us
My world was dull, each minute, until I found you in it
And all at once, the happiness I knew
Became these quiet nights of loving you.

We will live eternally in this mood of reverie
Away from all the earthly cares around us
My world was dull, each minute, until I found you in it
And all at once, the happiness I knew
Became these quiet nights of loving you.
