Is there any Typhoon alumnus out there that likes to work on classic cars? I have a 1973 Ford Mustang Convertible that needs some engine work. It’s on my bucket list to get it going by June so I can cruise Buckroe Beach in style. If you have the time and knowledge call or text me at 757-788-9713 or email me at Thanks.

From - 03/04/15:

An angry wife was complaining about her husband spending all his free time in a bar, so one night he took her along with him.

"What'll you have?" he asked.

"Oh, I don't know. The same as you I suppose," she replied.

So, the husband ordered a couple of Jack Daniel's and threw his down in one shot. His wife watched him, then took a sip from her glass and immediately spat it out.

"Yuck, that's TERRIBLE!" she spluttered. "I don't know how you can drink this stuff!"

"Well, there you go," cried the husband. "And you think I'm out enjoying myself every night!"

The rose of Jacob is rejoicing

As they see as one the sky blue garments of Mordechai


You were their salvation in every generation


To make it known that those that hope in You

Will never know shame


Cursed is Haman, who sought my destruction

Blessed is Mordechai the Judean

Cursed is Zeresh, the wife of my tormentor

Blessed is Esther, who has shielded me

And let Charvona also be remembered for good
