PRINCE PONDERS PENINSULAR PREDICAMENT
Gen. John Bankhead Magruder, CSA, was known as “Prince John” for his rather flamboyant approach to life in general and his uniform in particular. He was in charge of forces on the Peninsula, and McClellan’s Army of the Potomac was on the way. In consequence thereof, Gen. Joseph E. Johnston was ordered from Richmond to reinforce him. He was flamboyant, not stupid.
From Jerry Blanchard ('62) of VA - 03/62/11 - "Football":
I found these in some papers my
mom left. I saw them several years ago, and I forgot them. Boy, talk
about memories, I remember these games like yesterday...I hope they come

|A Toast to ‘Mr. Boh’
Posted: 25 Mar 2011 10:54 AM PDT
Early National Bohemian Beer ad.
“Mr. Boh,” ubiquitous image of Baltimore’s former National Brewing
Co., helped me introduce my recent commentary on union power in
Maryland. It was entitled “Froth off the Mug: No Beer Summit By ‘Mr. Boh.’”
Despite any similarities you might envision, “Rich Uncle Pennybags”
is a depiction of the prototypical Yankee tycoon, funded by “filthy
lucre.” Some commentary said he was inspired by the image of legendary
steel magnate J. P. Morgan.

Thank you, Harry and Norm - and Tom and Fran!
From Sarah Puckett Kressaty ('65) of VA - 03/26/11 - "Please read this regarding pics on your phones":
If you have children or grandchildren you NEED to watch this. I had no idea this could happen from taking pictures on the blackberry or cell phone. It's scary.

In view of the dire consequences, it is increasingly disturbing the amount of personal information some people freely and innocently supply. Thank you for this timely reminder, Sarah Sugah!
From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 03/12/11 - "Some Maxines" (#15 in a Series of 19):
Finally, Some NEW Maxine's!
REMEMBER: Good friends are like stars.
You don't always see them but you always know they are there.
EXACTAMUNDO! Thanks, Joyce!
From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 03/26/11:
|Mad men are given a test to check their mental state. The instructor
draws a door on the wall and orders them to go out.
They start rushing to the door but one remains sitting.
The instructor goes to him and asks; “why didn’t you join the others?”
He replies, "Let them fight. They forgot I have the keys."

So you met someone who set you
back on your heals - goody, goody!
You met someone and now you know how it feels - goody, goody!
You gave him your heart, too,
Just as I gave mine to you,
And he broke it in little pieces,
Now, how do you do?
You lie awake just singing the blues all night - goody, goody!
And you think that love's a barrel of dynamite.
Hooray and hallelujah!
You had it coming to ya.
Goody goody for him, goody goody for me!
I hope you're satisfied, you rascal you.
I hope you're satisfied, 'cause you got yours.
