Good afternoon & happy Friday Rams,
How’s everything going? Hopefully you and your families are enjoying these last couple weeks of the summer of 2021, and it’s been a fun, enjoyable and most importantly a safe start to September. I also hope that you all have a terrific month ahead.
So, have you put good use to these days of summer? Did you take a family vacation, read a great book, do something to inspire yourself, learn a new skill? What brought you pleasure and happiness during the summer of 2021? We’d love to hear.
As always, our most pressing goal is to locate many of our classmates who are missing. With your help, we are doing a great job at finding many of our classmates, and removing there names from the list. This is a daunting goal for us, and we continue to need your help. So, if you’re in contact with anyone from the list, please have them contact us so we may add them to our class email list or (if they’re on Facebook) we can invite them to join our class page on Facebook . We also have a Page on Twitter as well as on Instagram. Both can be found by looking up Alexander Ramsey 79. Although we know it’s not possible, we’d love to eliminate every missing name on that list.
We’ve heard from many of our classmates that they’ve lost class yearbooks, and would enjoy an opportunity to see them once again, so another goal would be to add our Sophomore, and Junior year Yearbooks to the site. Not to mention freshening up the photos from our senior yearbook
If you have any suggestions of what you’d like to see added to the site, please feel free to send me your ideas, and we’ll see what we can do.
Have a wonderful month and may 2021 continue to bring you all many day of happiness.
US TOP 40 SINGLES FOR THE WEEK ENDING September 1, 1979
Disco music was still king of the hill. However, pop, country, and good ole rock-n-roll was still making a strong presence in the 70’s music culture. There was also the beginning of something that would become what would become knows as glam heavy metal, or the hair band. Whatever music you preferred, there was plenty to go around to suite all styles.
On a personal note, during our senior year, I remember a discussion that I had with Mike Donahue concerning the band Kiss. At the time I was a HUGE country rock fan, and told him how I’d never pay money to watch a band like Kiss who’s music (in my opinion and at the time I thought) was aweful and depended on theatrics way too much, instead of playing just good music. Well, five years later, and still today. I’ve been to 4 Kiss concerts, and to this day they are still a favorite of mine. With the number 13 song “I Was Made for Lovin’ You” becoming one of my favorite songs, from one of my former least favorite bands ever.
