On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus

- John 12: 12-13 (KJV)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   We are a varied lot, and many of you will not be celebrating today, but for many of you, today marks the beginning of Holy Week, and even if we're not personally observing the day, our Typhoon Family tries (but does not always succeed) to mark all such occasions:

  From My #2 Daughter-in-Law, Bethany Winona Harty (Siuslaw HS, OR - '94) of TX - 03/30/12 - "Quotation":

"God loves us. He is watching us. He wants us to succeed. We will know some day that He has not left one thing undone for the eternal welfare of each of us. If we only knew it, heavenly hosts are pulling for us - friends in heaven that we cannot now remember who yearn for our victory. This is our day to show what we can do - what life and sacrifice we can daily, hourly, instantly make for God. If we give our all, we will get His all from the greatest of all. Give God your best, and His best will come back to you." Ezra Taft Benson, "Jesus Christ - Gifts and Expectations," Dec. 1988 Ensign

Great quote, huh??! I don't think I've ever heard that one before. I mean, I know the concept, of course, but to hear it again was great :)

   That is a great quotation, Bethany - thanks so much! I don't remember hearing it myself either!


  From Bruce Sims ('56) of VA - 03/30/12 - "You need to see this":

The Sailor Pictured Below Is

Navy Petty Officer,

PO2

(Petty Officer, Second Class)

EOD2

(Explosive Ordnance Disposal, Second Class)

"MIKE MONSOOR"

April 5th, 1981 ~ September 29th, 2006

Was Posthumously Awarded "The Congressional Medal Of Honor" on 31 Mar 2008,

For Giving His Life in Iraq, As He Jumped on, and Covered with His Body, a Live Hand Grenade,

Saving the Lives of a Large Group of Navy Seals That Was Passing By!

~

During Mike Monsoor's Funeral,

At Ft. Rosecrans National Cemetery, in San Diego, California,

The Six Pallbearers Removed The Rosewood Casket From The Hearse,

And Lined up on Each Side of Mike Monsoor's Casket,

Were His Family Members, Friends, Fellow Sailors, and Well-wishers.

The Column of People Continued from the Hearse, All The Way to the Grave Site.

What The Group Didn't Know at The Time Was,

Every Navy Seal

(45 To Be Exact)

That Mike Monsoor Saved That Day Was Scattered Throughout the Column!

~

As The Pallbearers Carried the Rosewood Casket

Down the Column of People to the Grave Side,

The Column Would Collapse,

Which Formed a Group of People that Followed Behind.

~

Every Time The Rosewood Casket Passed a Navy Seal,

He Would Remove His Gold Trident Pin from His Uniform,

And Slap It Down Hard,

Causing the Gold Trident Pin to Embed Itself

Into the Top of the Wooden Casket!

Then the Navy Seal Would Step Back from the Column, And Salute!

~

Now For Those Who Don't Know What A Trident Pin Is,

Here Is The Definition!

~

After One Completes the Basic Navy Seals Program Which Lasts for Three Weeks,

And Is Followed by Seal Qualification Training,

Which Is 15 More Weeks of Training,

Necessary to Continue Improving Basic Skills and to Learn New Tactics and Techniques,

Required for an Assignment to a Navy Seal Platoon.

After Successful Completion,

Trainees Are Given Their Naval Enlisted Code,

And Are Awarded the Navy Seal Trident Pin.

With This Gold Pin They Are Now Officially Navy Seals!

It Was Said That You Could Hear Each of the 45 Slaps from Across The Cemetery!

By The Time The Rosewood Casket Reached The Grave Site,

It Looked As Though It Had a Gold Inlay from the 45 Trident Pins That Lined the Top!

This Was A Fitting End To An Eternal Send-Off For A Warrior Hero!

This Should Be Front-Page News Instead of the Garbage We Listen to and See Every Day!

~

Here's a Good Idea!

Since the Main Stream Media Won't Make This News.

Then We Choose to Make It News by Forwarding It.

  From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 03/30/12 - "Six Truths in Life ":


Six Truths in Life

1. You cannot stick your tongue out and look up at the ceiling at the same time, a physical impossibility.

2. All idiots, after reading #1 will try it.

3. And discover #1 is a lie.

4. You are smiling now because you are an idiot.

5. You soon will forward this to another idiot.

6. There is still a stupid smile on your face.

I sincerely apologize about this but I'm an idiot and I needed company. You now have 2 options...delete it, or send it along to put a smile on someone's face today.
 

     Thanks again, Norris Sweetie!

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 03/31/12:


Three old ladies were sitting in a diner, chatting about various things.

One lady said, "You know, I'm getting really forgetful. This morning, I was standing at the top of the stairs, and I couldn't remember whether I had just come up or was about to go down."

The second lady said, "You think that's bad? The other day, I was sitting on the edge of my bed, and I couldn't remember whether I was going to bed or had just awaken!"

The third lady smiled smugly. "Well, my memory's just as good as it's always been, knock on wood." She rapped the table. With a startled look on her face, she asked, "Who's there?!"

The Holy City

Text by Frederick E. Weatherly, 1892
(1849-1929)

Music by
Michael Maybrick - a.k.a. Stephen Adams
(31 Jan 1841 - 26 Aug 1913)


 Last night I lay a-sleeping, there came a dream so fair,
I stood in old Jerusalem beside the temple there.
I heard the children singing and ever as they sang,
Me thought the voice of angels from heaven in answer rang.
Me thought the voice of angels from heaven in answer rang.

Refrain
Jerusalem! Jerusalem!
Lift up your gates and sing,
Hosanna in the highest!
Hosanna to your King!

And then me thought my dream was changed, the streets no longer rang,
Hushed were the glad Hosannas the little children sang.
The sun grew dark with mystery, the morn was cold and chill,
As the shadow of a cross arose upon a lonely hill.
As the shadow of a cross arose upon a lonely hill.

Refrain
Jerusalem! Jerusalem!
Lift up your gates and sing,
Hosanna in the highest!
Hosanna to your King!

And once again the scene was changed; new earth there seemed to be;
I saw the Holy City beside the tideless sea;
The light of God was on its streets, the gates were open wide,
And all who would might enter and no one was denied.
No need of moon or stars by night, or sun to shine by day;
It was the new Jerusalem that would not pass away.
It was the new Jerusalem that would not pass away.

Refrain
Jerusalem! Jerusalem!
Lift up your gates and sing,
Hosanna in the highest!
Hosanna to your King!
Hosanna in the highest!
Hosanna to your King!
