237th Birthday of the United States Marine Corps
United States Marine Corps, with its fiercely proud tradition
of excellence in combat, its hallowed rituals, and its unbending
code of honor, is part of the fabric of American myth.”
Thomas E. Ricks in Making the Corps, 1997
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
This event repeats each year, and assuming the Webmistress is not asleep at the wheel, we try to mark that observance.

From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 11/09/12 - "NNHS 65 Online Newsletter":
Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA provided a thoughtful and helpful message, which I am glad you posted. If I may add one additional point regarding the sharing of information among "The TYPHOON Nation" it has enabled those who are willing to assist others who are in need at a difficult time in their life. The outpouring of love is inspiring.
When a need is brought to the attention of the TYPHOON Nation, they respond. Thank You.
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL
Thank you so much, Sweet Adonis - that they most certainly do, to which I can personally attest!
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 11/09/12 - "Classmate David Newton.":
Just catching up on the earlier Newsletters. David Newton resides in the Commonwealth of Virginia, in a lovely place called Luray.
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL
Thanks again, Major Madagan! I added the Sacred Soil after David's name, and made significant inroads in fixing that long broken page:
Increase Personal Productivity with the Top 11 Multiple Positives
Multiple positives — activities that benefit you in multiple ways — are a powerful productivity tool. These activities maximize your time by combining necessities like education, exercise, money making, and fun into a single, super productive action. The more multiple positives you use, the easier it is to get everything you want done without feeling stressed. They also free up loads of time and create a pleasant feeling of satisfaction and efficiency.
Finding your personal multiple positives can be challenging. Nothing works for everyone, so it’s important to figure out what’s compatible with your lifestyle and continuously optimize. Based on the feedback from my post about return on investment, personal experience, and hours of research, here are the top 11 multiple positives that productive people use to make the most of their time. I hope you find something inspiring, I know I have.
Enjoyable and Educational Exercise
We start finding reasons not to exercise when it becomes a tedious chore. Making exercise a pleasant experience encourages us to use our bodies more often and satisfies our recreational desires. Here are some examples of how to make exercise a multiple positive.
Hobbies that Make Money
Hobbies are a great way to relax and develop skills, but finding ones that generate revenue will take your productivity to another level. It may not be much, but getting paid to do what you love is priceless. Over time those income streams can amount to a substantial sum. After all, it’s all gravy.
Make the Most of Your Commute
The commute is a part of the day most people dread. We usually spend it stuck in traffic, miserable and unable to do anything productive. Finding a way make your commute useful and enjoyable can vastly increase productivity and eliminate stress.
The Joy of Cooking
We’re often tempted to eat out because of convenience, but it’s generally more expensive and less healthy than cooking at home. I’ve found that by eating frozen vegetables and cooking on a Foreman grill, I eat for half the money and in half the time it would take to order delivery. Making cooking a social event is a great way to relax and spend time with friends. It’s a skill that will save you money and impress people for the rest of your life.
The few examples provided here are only the tip of the iceberg. With a bit of creative thinking you can easily find activities that fulfill multiple needs. The better you get at this, the more productivity and enjoyment you’ll be able to fit into your hectic schedule. It’s not about cramming more productivity into every spare moment, it’s about making the most of a precious resource.
