Memories
Like the Corners of my mind
Misty watered clored memories
of the Way We Were!

Scattered Pictures
of the smiles we left behind
Smiles We gave to one Another
For the Way We Were

Can it be that it was all so simple then
or has time rewritten every line
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell Me, Would We? Could We?

Memories
May be beautiful and yet
What is too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget.

So its the laughter
we will remember 
whenever we remember
The Way We Were
The Way We Were!!!!!!!!  

Stay tuned for memories and words!  Coming soon!
2014 Rose Bowl Bound!
2014 Rose Bowl Bound!
2014 Duck Football Season!  What another great Duck Football Season!  Once
again, it was a fantastic time to see old friends and Bendites each football game.
Of course a few of us got the red carpet treatment, courtesy, of Chris and Debbie
Wetle!  Can't thank them enough for hosting the tail gate party each game, and also
for the "Wetle Presidential Suite" at their home.  They are simply awesome, and will love and cherish them both for life!  It is very special to have childhood friends, and your best
friends for a lifetime.  

It was particularly wonderful this Duck season when Steve McClain joined us at 
a Duck game, and Marcia Grote came to town the same weekend!  What a fabulous
weekend of memories that was.  Eugene and Portland was rocking with Bendites.

We wish our beloved Duck many blessings for the Rose Bowl!  We are playing for
the National Title soon!

Blessings to all in 2015!  
PS:  Nice to send some good news for a change!

I received a very special Christmas Card in 2014.  It came from a classmate I have not
seen in 44 years, and it meant the world to me.

"Sending you a Christmas card reminds me of how you have crossed my path and
touched my life.  Warm Wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!"

Thank you so very much, it meant the world to me!

Doug Peabody's Memorial Service will be on 8/24/14 from 3-to 8:00 pm at the Overlook House at 3839 N. Melrose.  Dr. Portland, Or. 97237.  There is limited parking, but
Max line is near by.

DOUGLAS Scott Peabody, 62, passed away in one of his favorite spots, his
parents home in Sequim, Wa.; after a battle with liver cancer for four months.

Doug also know by his family as ( Buggy-Dougy, Doug-A-Doo, Dugout, Roger & Rub-A-
Dub) was born in Anchorage, Alaska.  He and his family moved to Bend where he
graduated from Bend High in 1970.  After a few years in Eugene pursing music as
a major, he left for the adventure of working on the Alaska Pipeline in the mid 70's.
He later moved to Portland, where he received his degree in elementary education from
Portland State University.

Doug had many passions including sports, music and literature.  He was very literate
and musical, he was a Jazz DJ, part-owner of Great American Music in Bend (1980),
manager of Music Milennium (1985-1995) and more recently the owner of the
popular Book Store, "The Open Book", in Bend, Or. (1995-2014).  His sports passions
included fleecing his buddies with footall wagers, a yearly March Madness pool for
20 plus friends and family and skiing Mt. Bachelor for many years.

Doug married Sheila Martin and their daughter Alison was born in 1980.  He is
survived by his former wife Sheila; his daughter Alison of Portland; Parents Max
Peabody and his wife Mary; brothers Max Peabody III (Peggy) , Richard (Maloue)
and Wen (Angelina) and his sister Amy Peabody (Joseph Godinet) and his
niece Megan  Peabody and nephew Michael Peabody.

There wil be a Memorial for Doug from 3-8:00 pm on Sunday, 8-24-14 at the Overlook
House, 3839 N. Melrose Dr. Portland, Or. 97237.  

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Oregon Music Hall of Fame would be appreciated
by his family.

Wishing all my old classmates a Wonderful, Merry Christmas, and
many blessings in 2013!

It is the time of year, you really treasure the blessings of family and
friends, and a lifetime of memories.  I have enjoyed every single
Christmas Card because of the thought, time and care put into them.
In this day and age, it is electronic text messages, emails, generic facebook greetings, which usually includes "it is all about me!"

This week, it was wonderful to actually get a plate of home
baked cookies, receive photos of family & friends, have a meal with
just "good quality people", and most of all; being around people who
understand the meaning of the true "Christmas Sprit", and what a gift this special Christmas Holiday is all about.

Take a moment to open the door for someone, call someone you have been meaning to call forever-but life keeps getting in the way,
make a senior day, and drop by-remember you are a step away, but
above all else; just be the best you can be each day.  

Looking forward to a walk in the snow in Bend during the holidays, and remembering the "Way We Were!"

Blessings Always
Your Bearette Bud!
Mr. Magic Mom!
Mr. Magic Mom!
Our beloved Mr. Magic's Mom has received her Angel Wings!
Duane Zanon's mom passed away this last Wednesday, and her service will be
in Bend on April 12, 2013.  Please read the attached obituary for details.
 
I know Mr. Magic would love to see some of his old classmates, and I know
many would like to pay their respects to his beloved mom Barbara.
 
Barbara and Kevin Domby's folks were the only parents to make it to our
40th reunion, and darn did they all look great!  Mr. Magic must have done his magic
on his mom.  It was so great to have her join us, and I sure don't have half the
energy she had.
 
Our prayers and thoughts are with Duane Zanon and his family at this most difficult time.
 
Our blessings our with them.

Then & Now!

It seems fitting that I post a poem today on someone's special birthday.
I have had a poem in my possession for 40 plus years, and I can't remember
now exactly why I have it, but I do.  I remember before our 10th reunion
pulling it out and wondering where this Bear was, and hoping they were
doing well.  Tucked it away, you know the drill, somewhere where I thought
I would remember.  Of course, anytime I put something in a special place so
I won't forget where it is, I can't remember where I put it.  Years passed, then
digging through boxes I ran across it again.  Long story short, I put it away
believing I would track down this person before the 40th reunion, and
share it with them.  You got it, I couldn't remember where I put it even though
it was just about 1 year before the reunion, I found it.

Two days ago I found the poem, and when I had a minute was going to
send to my fellow classmate.  I don't believe there are any accidents in
our lives, just opportunities, but there is a reason for everything.  The day
after I found the poem, would you believe this person actually emailed me
on a different subject, and I noted I had just found the poem, and when I
had a minute was going to send.  I did ask permission to post if I found, and
they said if appropriate.  (It's 40 plus years later so appropriate!!!)

This person was one soul I set out to find as one of my first victims, because
I had thought and worried about them all these years.  Probably a genius,
at the very least, a super, super smart guy.  I  remember in Geometry, I
think our 10th grade year, this guy would never come to class and yet
ace the tests.  It seemed so unfair!

In one of our "New Blogs" hopefully to come, I will start updating everybody
on "The Now" in our lives.  I am happy to report this super whiz turned out
just fine, sold a business, retired, then returned to work.  He didn't make it
to the reunion because he was either in Japan, Iran or Afghanistan, can't
remember, but then I am 29!

Here's the poem I have had all these years, and I assume, perhaps too
much Kool Aid at the time!

Sat 4:00 a.m.

I wish it were tomorrow
And perhaps the sun would shine
To burn away the sorrow
That holds my tired mind

I wish this night were ending
And with it all this pain
I'm sad to feel the blood I'm lending
Just darkening the stain

I wish that I could check my fall
But there's no use in trying
Must be a reason for this all
Is there really death in dying

I wish there were a hallway out
And I had the strength to walk
Your eyes too long have shone with doubt
Till were both afraid to talk.

FG

(Forest Garrigus:  He did end up using all those super brain cells the
good Lord gave him, and is celebrating his Birthday today with the
special gift of just giving his daughter's hand in marriage.

I hear a voice in the garden say I am never alone. The flowers look so lovely and it’s great to be home then I wake up and find it was only a dream. Heaven is still waiting it seems. I look for the joy in this day and that, and long for the day when I can go back but today I need strength and joy for the way for I most go on today. I have those who love me and I no they care, but some times its so hard to be here. I feel a hand that holds me so close and a voice full of love that I hear the most. I reach for the hand as I lowly go on, the path is not easy to be on but up there ahead just out of site is the end of the journey and heavens delight. The journey gets long and the road is some times rocky and the path steep but you can make it cause you have someone who loves you leading the way or carrying you when need be. We miss you my dear and we wonder where you have been. They say no news is good news, but when its been so long we get worried. Please tell us your okay.

Have Some Sympathy for Scientists.No I’m not a scientist. I even need spellcheck to spell scientist right and spell check.I am starting to develop sympathy for the AGW true believers.Being a scientist, mad or otherwise, must be hard. They have to have a high tolerance for tedium. All day it’s measure, record, measure, record… Boring. Then after a couple of years working on something they passionately believe in, they prove themselves wrong. That has got to be tough to take. Sure the other scientists are saying things like â??good jobâ??, â??You proved that something doesn’t work. That saves the rest of us a lot of time.â??, â??Great integrityâ??, â??Can you reproduce your failure? Wouldn’t want to say something doesn’t work when it does because who would peer review that? It would be lost forever.â??. But the company or university doesn’t make money and maybe loses prestige and you don’t publish. Wait. Why don’t they publish? Knowing how something doesn’t work is important. That should be worth an abstract and a link. Hey Anthony. Start a publication. It could be called The Watts Up With That Scientific Journal of It Doesn’t Work. The studies must be properly done and reproducible. Preprints would be free but to see what passes peer-review is a $50.00 subscription. Don’t you have a regular contributor who needs a job? They could be the editor who convinces other scientists to peer-review for free. Well, I suppose they would have to be given a complimentary subscription. I like this idea. It would be great for somebody else to do.But I digress.There have been some recent articles on scientists with insufficient integrity. This means integrity can be hard in a normal climate. (pun intended)Now let’s go back 30+ years. We had just gotten out of a period of very visible pollution and were becoming aware that the invisible pollutants were worse. There were a lot of unknowns that are now common knowledge, at least they are on WUWT. One could be excused for believing that human activity was changing the climate of the world toward our destruction. Now let’s consider money and power. Because of our survival instinct you can scare people in a sound bite but it takes a long time to counter that. So equal time does not have equal effect. This issue was made for politicians and it was real. No lying or exaggeration necessary. The scientists and political leaders were legitimately going to be the heroes who save the world. So thousands of political leaders and many others associated with government were justified to hook their political power wagon to AGW. Poor countries were justified in guilting us out of money. And speaking of money, if you want to get rich, watch which way government wants to go and get out in front.This has been going on for decades. What is the scientist going to do now? Say â??Oops. Never mind.â?? They would have a lot of powerful people upset with them. All this time they were the heroes along with the scientists saving the world and now the scientists tell them they have spent all this time, money, power and they never were heroes. They would look like fools. Powerful rich people don’t like looking foolish because that perception of them is a big threat to their power. You think integrity is hard in a normal climate? Try standing against all of that and knowing you are going to lose your own power and future income would be in doubt. Sure the scientists would respect you and with that and a dollar you can buy a cheap cup of coffee. The mighty don’t like to fall so they are not going to fall alone. We have a very strong instinct to gain and hold onto power. Power will spin you head around.Self respect is how much you like yourself. Self esteem is what deep down in the foundation of your psychology you â??knowâ?? to be the real truth about yourself and how you fit into the world. So for decades you were the respected world saving hero and now that is all destroyed. That would be a severe psychological reality shift and terribly rough for anybody to handle.So why would a slow typist like me write all of this? Because when people know that somebody, at least a little bit, knows what they are about to go through it’s a little less hard.How do you change the mind of a person for whom the answer to the following question is a firm yes and how will that way of thinking effect their life?If I am right and you are wrong does that make you a bad person?I think this explains a lot. Especially if what they believe makes them a hero or gives them their sense of value as a person or defines their place and value in life. On those issues they don’t experience a discussion as an interesting talk. Instead it is a threat to everything that they are. nexium generic cialis

That saves the rest of us a lot of time.â??, â??Great integrityâ??, â??Can you reproduce your failure? Wouldn’t want to say something doesn’t work when it does because who would peer review that? It would be lost forever.â??. But the company or university doesn’t make money and maybe loses prestige and you don’t publish. Wait. Why don’t they publish? Knowing how something doesn’t work is important. That should be worth an abstract and a link. Hey Anthony. Start a publication. It could be called The Watts Up With That Scientific Journal of It Doesn’t Work. The studies must be properly done and reproducible. Preprints would be free but to see what passes peer-review is a $50.00 subscription. Don’t you have a regular contributor who needs a job? They could be the editor who convinces other scientists to peer-review for free. Well, I suppose they would have to be given a complimentary subscription. I like this idea. It would be great for somebody else to do.But I digress.There have been some recent articles on scientists with insufficient integrity. This means integrity can be hard in a normal climate. (pun intended)Now let’s go back 30+ years. We had just gotten out of a period of very visible pollution and were becoming aware that the invisible pollutants were worse. There were a lot of unknowns that are now common knowledge, at least they are on WUWT. One could be excused for believing that human activity was changing the climate of the world toward our destruction. Now let’s consider money and power. Because of our survival instinct you can scare people in a sound bite but it takes a long time to counter that. So equal time does not have equal effect. This issue was made for politicians and it was real. No lying or exaggeration necessary. The scientists and political leaders were legitimately going to be the heroes who save the world. So thousands of political leaders and many others associated with government were justified to hook their political power wagon to AGW. Poor countries were justified in guilting us out of money. And speaking of money, if you want to get rich, watch which way government wants to go and get out in front.This has been going on for decades. What is the scientist going to do now? Say â??Oops. Never mind.â?? They would have a lot of powerful people upset with them. All this time they were the heroes along with the scientists saving the world and now the scientists tell them they have spent all this time, money, power and they never were heroes. They would look like fools. Powerful rich people don’t like looking foolish because that perception of them is a big threat to their power. You think integrity is hard in a normal climate? Try standing against all of that and knowing you are going to lose your own power and future income would be in doubt. Sure the scientists would respect you and with that and a dollar you can buy a cheap cup of coffee. The mighty don’t like to fall so they are not going to fall alone. We have a very strong instinct to gain and hold onto power. Power will spin you head around.Self respect is how much you like yourself. Self esteem is what deep down in the foundation of your psychology you â??knowâ?? to be the real truth about yourself and how you fit into the world. So for decades you were the respected world saving hero and now that is all destroyed. That would be a severe psychological reality shift and terribly rough for anybody to handle.So why would a slow typist like me write all of this? Because when people know that somebody, at least a little bit, knows what they are about to go through it’s a little less hard.How do you change the mind of a person for whom the answer to the following question is a firm yes and how will that way of thinking effect their life?If I am right and you are wrong does that make you a bad person?I think this explains a lot. Especially if what they believe makes them a hero or gives them their sense of value as a person or defines their place and value in life. On those issues they don’t experience a discussion as an interesting talk. Instead it is a threat to everything that they are. lasix generic cialis

Have Some Sympathy for Scientists.No I’m not a scientist. I even need spellcheck to spell scientist right and spell check.I am starting to develop sympathy for the AGW true believers.Being a scientist, mad or otherwise, must be hard. They have to have a high tolerance for tedium. All day it’s measure, record, measure, record… Boring.

I’m curious, maybe you can ask Joel about this. Do you ever notice a marked difference in plant growth with rain from Thunderstorms than the usual showery uneventful rain ? I’ve studied this for years and some of the companies I have worked with create devices to replicate the water’s molecular structure to something similar to what the grounded electrolysis does for lightning storm rain drops.Notice this next time you have storms. Notice that regular rain has a pinging sound when it hits your roof. However rain from Thunderstorms should have a dull flat splatting sound when it hit’s the roof. Water molecules from Thunderstorms are more loosely bonded and the clusters tinier than other water droplets. Joel will know what the terms wetter water and wetting agents mean. Conventional Farmers using science based technologies use chemicals to break the electrical bonding of heavily clustered water molecules, however the negative electrical charge from the ground into the atmosphere in an electrical storm will accomplish the same thing. Water molecules more loosely bonded will soak into the soil easier and the elements disolve better for the microbes and other soil biota to consume and give them back to plants. The plants themselves find it easier to hydrate themselves quicker.Aside from that, I love the sound of rain hitting on a corrugated tin roof and the fragrance of various plant isoprenes permeating the air all at once giving me a natural high. *smile*– nexium lasix
