THIS DAY IN HISTORY
TEXAS INDEPENDENCE DAY
March 2, 1836
Texas, the only American state that ever won a war to become its own country, will not let anyone forget it. While others are bracing for snow, preparing for the Academy Awards, or monitoring the goings on in Europe, Texans are celebrating their "national" holiday. It was on this day in 1836, Texas declared its independence from Mexico as the Alamo was infamously under siege by Mexican forces ...CLICK HERE for more on this famous day, including the 39 things you should do in Texas before you die.

What?! Need more?
All right. George Clooney made a movie last year on
the University of Michigan campus in Ann Arbor
entitled "The Ides of March," taken from a
modern-day play about political intrigue &
| Et tu, Brute?
Perhaps the most famous 3 words uttered in literature, "Et tu, Brute?" (Even you, Brutus?), this expression has come down in history to mean the ultimate betrayal by one's closest friend. This scene, in which the conspirators in the Roman Senate assassinate Caesar, is one of the most dramatic moments on the Shakespearean stage.
The audience has just witnessed the arrogance and hubris of a ruler who has sought, with a republic, to become a monarch, comparing himself to the gods. Brutus, a close friend of Caesar and yet a man who loves Rome (and freedom) more, has joined the conspirators in the assassination, a betrayal which is captured by the three words above.

More decadence from those pesky pagans
No Ides of March observance would be fitting without a salute to our mentor,
Latin teacher Mrs. Martin
Remember this, Latin Lovers?
Latin is a dead language,
Dead as it can be.
It killed off all the Romans,
and now it's killing me!
And Mrs. Martin never failed to giggle after she recited that poem to her students. Thank you,

Any good places to eat, things to do?
Do we have a site for you!
Recently inaugurated by the Marshall Convention & Visitors Bureau, the site name is VisitMarshallTexas.org It has lots of interesting things you had no idea were available in Marshall. You are guaranteed some surprises when you visit this attractive & informative website. Click on the address above & give it a try!
This is the Marshall High School classes of 1960 and 1961 Website. What started out as a reunion website has evolved into your "Stay In Touch" with classmates website. Each Classmate and our Guests have a personal page that is set up so they can share with us the things that have been going on with themselves and their families since High School. This is a great place to brag on your children and grandchildren, share your experiences and plans. Feel free to "link" your Facebook, My Space, You Tube, etc. to your personal page. Insert recent photos of you and your family, add your "since I left MHS" history, etc.
The site will be updated, active and useful for as long as class members want it to be. Update your personal information anytime you wish, and encourage other classmates to continue updating theirs. When you enter the Home Page, there is a box in the upper right hand corner that will indicate who else is using the site, go to the Online Chat, and see if you can begin a dialogue, or go to the Message Center and start one. We have "Administrators" for both classes to help with development of your personal page, as well as respond to questions you have about the site. They will also, check the new data entered by classmates to assure that it is admissable. Info60@marshallmavs.com for the class of 1960 and email@example.com for the class of 1961.

We Didn't Start The Fire
(Read the explanation of this video then open the site below. It really is well done.)
If you don't do anything else the rest of the day,do yourself a favor now and just watch/listen tothis video. Read the stuff first so you can tell what's going on... It's awesome!
This song and its title was the answer to one question of Final Jeopardy -- only one person got it right. Question was (paraphrased): "What 1980's song do history teachers praise for its educational value?" I never could understand all the references on Billy Joel's song -- fortunately, with this VIDEO, given the pictures, now I can "see" what my "ears" couldn't.
Apparently, it's Joel's homage to the 40-years of historical headlines since his birth (1949). Wish I could have appreciated the depths of this song when it was released. Twenty years later, I'm in awe of what Joel was able to put into music and lyrics lasting only a few minutes.
Whether you are a Billy Joel fan or not, you probably remember his great song, 'We Didn't Start the Fire.' Here it is, set to pictures... Very, very cool. Had to share this one. It's a neat flashback through the past half century. I never did know the words. Turn up the volume, sit back and enjoy a review of 50 years of history in less than 3 minutes! Thanks to Billy Joel and some guy from the University of Chicago with a lot of spare time and Google.
Top left gives you full screen....top right lets you pause. [Reversed, I think!] Bottom left shows the year. The older you are, the more pictures you will recognize. Anyone over age 65 should remember over 90% of what they see. But it's great at any age.
