Message: Once I thought that I made a mistake, but I was wrong. However, late last night my mind was evidently not functioning up to par and I sort of got some songs twisted. Phil Ochs is responsible for the Draft Dodger Rag ("I'm just a typical American Boy, From a typical American town, I believe in God and Senator Dodd, and keeping old Castro Down...."). Arlo Guthrie has a cut on the Alice's Restaurant Album about getting drafted and listing a felony conviction (for littering) on the enlistment form. Oh, now I feel better.
Thank you Sharon for clearing that up.

Message: Betty, try listening to some Phil Ochs - that can be pretty powerful stuff. Also, for a lighter listen, Arlo Guthrie's Draft Dodger Rag which I believe is on the Alice's Restaurant Album. And of course there is the venerable Kingston Trio hit, Where Have All the Flowers Gone? (also done by Pete Seeger (no relation to Bob). There were so many that your ears may get tired before you finish listening!

Message: Speaking of coach's this week, I'm watching the Mia vs Indy NFL game Sunday and a linesman gets run over by a defensive back (actually the announcers spent several moments discussing the fact that the linesman got the best of the collision). One of several close-ups reveals the venerable Coach Semon, who appears to have caught the Dick Clark disease.
Keep it up coach. Still at HHS?

The ageless coach Sid looks much as he did when he walked on campus back in 1958. He says his secret is to keep moving and never look back. The last time I talked to him was 1992 at my 30th reunion and he looked great. He's been a linesman in the NFL for many years.

Message: Talking about stories about smoking. I was too cheap to ever take up smoking but my sister Patt is another story. She had just purchased a pack and set them down next to a large ashtray. Well her little brother decided to quarter them, I mean tear them up in pieces 1/4 inch long. Patt wasn't very happy, if you remember from earlier posts I would charge her 1/2 + of a week allowance for doing her chores for one day, so she launched the ashtray across the room shattering the tray against the wall. Well that was one of my parents favorite ashtrays Patt and I never told our parents what happened. With all of the hassles I gave her about smoking she still has the habit. Maybe we can get her to join the group of non-smokers too. Are you out there Patt?

Message: I'm back from England with only a cold to show for it. My advice to travellers visiting the United Kingdom: pack some decent food. I finally figured out why it's always foggy in London -- it's due to all the Londoners boiling their vegetables until they are a hopeless mush. I was staying at a hotel in Windsor for a while, but I didn't manage to see the Queen. This didn't bother me much until I got back and read the story about Keith Jones and the Pope. Me? I never made it passed a private audience with Father Patrick Redahan at St. Josephs.
Ah yes, boiled cabbage with mutton, blackbird pie and yorkshire pudding. WHAT THE "H" is that stuff anyway?? Are you supposed to eat it or use it to plaster holes in the wall?
Now get ready for Wine Country Weekend in April. You have enough time to reschedule your schedule so get crackin'. Glad your back Ted.

Message: Now that I've read Marshall Noyes' post about smoking, I have to add my story! Funny how the memories come back when reading others' similar ones. I think I was about six when it happened. I was acting "grown-up" and pretending to smoke one day, and my dad caught me. Well, he was smoking a cigar at the time and said, "If you really want to smoke, here you go," and handed me the lit cigar. I took a "puff" and swelled up with pride. He said, "No, you're not doing it right. Try again but take a big, deep breath at the same time." Need I say more? I was choking and crying and miserable for quite a while after that experience. But, thanks, Dad, because I give you the credit for me never even taking a hit off a cigarETTE!!

Message: Okay, everybody is telling smoking stories and how or why they quit or didn't. What do you do when you gotta have one? Can't think about anything else? You've spent all day trying to hold back from making the decision to have just ONE! Days pass, you've hung in there. But it's the middle of the week, your wife is going to be christmas shopping all day and into the night. It's your chance to pull it off and not get caught. One of your Cougar friends tempts you with the time and the place. You resist but the temptation is too strong. So you give in. To Pinks that is. Not cigarettes. Maybe even two Pink's in one setting. I've held off driving by the place and didn't stop for even a single bite. See you cougs at Pinks! 8PM Alan
VERY clever Alan. Yes tomorrow night is Pinks night so we'll see you all there about 8pm. I get to pick up the Rowdys..........Lucky me

Message: Alright John I bow to your knowledge (at least on this subject). I was so sure there was more than 2,000 people at that induction dinner. It sure seemed like it cause it was packed. I was so sure that I just called there. They said it will hold 900 at the most maybe more with some standing. And, I highly doubt there were 1,100 people standing. So I am sorry for doubting you and you truly deserve to admit you went to HHS. My scanner is broken and buying another on Saturday so I can at least send you a pic of me and Ali wrestling. YOU DA MAN!
Hey Keith, NO!!! You da Man! Yes please send it along and I'll post it right here on Feedback. Thanks Dude.......

Message: King John: One more smoking story for all of us. My mother cured me of any desire to smoke when I was the tender age of 4. I told her one day that I wanted to learn to smoke. She said fine son, I'll borrow a cigarette from a friend at work and when I come home tomorrow, I'll teach you how to smoke. Naturally, I was very excited and looking forward to mom coming home that night. She lit it for me and being an ex smoker took a long drag off it. She handed it to me and told me to do the same. I eagerly put it between my lips and greedily sucked in as hard as I could. Needless to say, it took me about a half an hour to recover from that experience. Mom nearly killed me, but she sure cured me of any desire to ever smoke again. Never have been a smoker, never will. Thanks Mom.
Great story Marshall. We need more moms like yours.

Message: Hi All, just wondering is Jackie McKnight the sister of Hessie, if so, where is she?
Also, wanted to tell all that are trying to quit smoking to hang in there, it might take a few trys, but do stop. I too was a 2 1/2 pack smoker for over 25 years and 19 years ago I quit cold turkey after many failed attempts and almost saying Hello to St. Peter did I stop. It was the best thing I did for myself, I might be a little overweight, but that can come off, and I do function on 1 1/2 lungs but, everything smells and tastes better, also most of all Im here to see my family and friends. My time playing cards with St. Peter and the angels will come at a later time, just not now. It will be hard to quit, but hang in there and keep trying.

Uh, Loretta I think you're a little behind in the feedback pages. Hessie checked in a couple of days ago. Her email address is on the Alumni List.

Message: John Baker, what a story!...I saw that Richard Simmon's program...something about getting your dreams fullfilled. I don't remember the title. A young woman wanted to help her mother quit smoking. Richard brought on a famous hypnotist (who helps people quit smoking) who stated that it is a matter of belief system. If you believe you are a smoker then you are; if you believe you are a non-smoker then you are. Evidentally, hypnotism can help people change their belief system. Based on the description of what happened to you I think you were hypnotised (when someone is will not's like having a little too much to drink but not where it is convinces oneself he or she did not drink too much even when ones feet can't stay on a yellow line) A changed belief system is a very powerful motivator.
(The last time I smoked cigarettes I was seven. My parents never knew because I would hop the fence and smoke near the railroad tracks while walking in the field behind my house. It all started when Jimmy Isle and I found a pack of Benson and Hedges along Aviation Blvd./El Segundo Blvd. I think I was coughing so much I realized I couldn't handle it. I really didn't like it anyway. I'm glad I did not develop the dependency.)
I wish success on everyone who is trying to quit.

So THAT'S where those Benson and Hedges ended up!!!
Whatever happened to me worked. I was such a cynic going in, and it STILL worked. I found that hypnotism is very powerful stuff.

Dan and the rest of you, Which One is Pink, is a fabulous band! Michael and I have had the privilege of seeing them at the House of Blues and at a Private Party at Vinyl which was hosted by Storm Thorgenson. We'd go to the strip club but it's a work night and all? If you like the music of Pink Floyd, you are going to love this band! I enjoyed their version of Comfortably Numb better than the Pink Floyd version. Enough said, Cougars we have a wonderful network of diversity here, take advantage of getting away from your computers and getting together with others from the board, you won't regret it.

Kathleen, Went by M and M's today. I thought about you and lunch. We'll do it in the next millenium, OK??

Considering LBPoly's c/o '99 produced 10 football scholership players to Div1 colleges (Stanford, Portland State, UCLA, USC, OU, etc.) and one to a Div2 college , I sure would have wanted "3rd year seniors" like that on my team in 1959.

Name: Smoke All You Want But Keep It Away From Non Smokers () on Tuesday, December 7, 1999 at 13:37:39
Message: Yes, it's your right as an American to smoke if you'd like. But frankly I'd rather be next to someone who's passing gas. The smell is bad but goes away fairly quickly, it doesn't cling to other people's clothes or hair and second-hand gas does NOT kill innocent people. (Although there are times when it seems like it will kill:-))
OK OK lets get off the cigarette subject. We sound like we went to Leuzinger. I love all you non-smokers and smokers alike.

Name: NonSmoker () on Tuesday, December 7, 1999 at 10:53:51
Message: To the smokers who want to smoke thats GREAT. Nothing like coughing all the time. And I know theres nothing like kissing an ashtray to start a romantic evening. And that lived in smell of a car that a smoker owns should be bottled and sold to Dr. Kevorkian patients. I agree that you should be able to do what you want without the government telling you to stop. What the cigarette companies need to make are stronger cigarettes so that us non-smokers don't have to suffer along with you for so long. I think its the effect of your smoking on the people who don't smoke that causes a problem. Maybe if you stick your head in a bag and smoke then it won't effect us. There is nothing more disgusting than sitting next to someone who smokes at a restaurant. If you want to kill yourself don't include the people who want to live a long healthy life.
