But there are other
things than dissipation that thicken the features.
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Can you believe it?? We've never used this sixties classic for a Newsletter theme before! Perhaps I refrained from using it all these years because of its, um, uplifting lyrics.....

I hadn't really seen Eric Burdon since 1964, and I was rather surprised that his appearance had, ah, changed somewhat in the last 45 years. I thought he'd still look just the same - you know, just like the rest of us!

From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 04/24/09 - "Will NBC be surprised?"
I checked this out before I sent it to all of you. According to "Truth or Fiction" this is an actual survey. It apparently has been going on for several years though.
PLEASE take a minute and vote.
Will MSNBC be surprised??*

Thank you, Joyce!
From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 04/24/09:
Hi Miss Carol,
Lovely to hear about your outing to the base ball game. Family is so great, especially when they let you ride IN the car. I haven't achieved that yet.
I was renewing my trac phone and the young man was talking from Belize. That made me think of Chip Clark and those beautiful pictures he sent "us".
Where is Chip Clark?
Linda May ' 666-never mind, that's where I live- ' 66
WILD GIGGLES!!! Linda May, you are so funny!
As far as I know, Chip is still in Northern Virginia, still working for the Smithsonian.

Be Proactive About Your Heart Health
By Kevin Agarwal, Apr. 22, 2009
Your heart works hard to continuously pump
blood, non-stop, to other parts of the body. Incredibly, it pumps 2000 gallons a
day and beats about 100,000 beats a day! This rhythmic pumping ensures the
circulation of a fresh supply of oxygen-rich blood to all organs, tissues and
cells of the body.
Your heart is your lifeline, and heart health should be a priority. Certain lifestyle choices we make can have consequences for our hearts, which can also affect the functions of other important organs and tissues. For optimal health it is important that we adjust our lifestyle, and make choices to promote heart health.
Taking steps in the right direction have had positive and proven benefits for heart health. Here are some tips to help keep your heart healthy.
Taking nutritional supplements is another positive approach to maintaining heart health. If you are unsure about which nutritional supplement to use, ask your doctor for advice. Some well researched ingredients are:
Making positive changes to your lifestyle and
adding a quality nutritional supplement, like CardioMatrix, can help
promote a happy, healthy heart

From the Head Flagtwirler of 1965, Janice McCain Rose of VA - 04/24/09:
Jerry ('65) and
Judy Phillips ('66 - Allen of VA)
that we are most appreciative of their kind words. Also...I think Judy
MUST be either superwoman or a bionic
woman of all times.....how she was able to take care of her
family.....sometimes two at a time....I don't know how she did it!
We are still praying for Judy's brother.... Monty (Phillips - '62 - of VA) whom I remember as "one of the good guys")......our NNHS family is one of a kind...of that I am sure!!!!!....Janice
Thank you, Janice! I think the rest of us mere mortals are in awe of both of you!
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 04/25/09 - " Monty Phillips ('62 - of VA)":
Thank you for keeping us up to date regarding the condition of Monty Phillips. He is certainly in the prayers of many of the TYPHOON Nation.
Recommend Monty for the Famous Marine page on your website. Surely he can come up with a photo image in the United States Marine Corps uniform. He was a "Squared Away" Marine, always looked sharp in his uniform.
He was one of the few Marines who were not sweating at the end of a Forced March, and his uniform was still starched. Not sure how he managed to keep such a military bearing under those conditions. He is a fighter!!!
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL
Dear Adonis, I was all set to patiently inform you that Monty was already listed with our Famous Marines, that he had been included there from the very beginning of the page six or seven years ago, long before it had grown into what it is today. When I brought up the page, I did not see him. I thought surely I had confused the alphabetical order as I so often do. I was aghast - no, positively mortified - to see that Monty was not there at all!
Thank you so much for bringing this inexcusable oversight to my attention, Joe!
While I was updating Marines, I sadly marked the passing today of Bea Arthur:

The House of the Rising Sun
There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one
My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans
Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and trunk
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he's on a drunk
------ organ solo ------
Oh mother tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun
Well, I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I'm goin' back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain
Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God I know I'm one
