THIS DAY IN 1964:
Thursday, November 26, 1964 - It was Thanksgiving Day then too - and who won the Big Turkey Day Game?? Well, sadly (for us) that would be those Hampton Crabbers, 6-0.
From the 1965 Anchor, p. 115: "The Typhoon took a week off before going against Hampton, with the Peninsula crown at stake. If ever a team deserved to win a game, the Typhoon should have won this one. As it turned out, the Typhoon defense held the Crabbers on numerous occasions, only to lose the game on an unfortunate fumble, which Hampton converted into the game's only score."
The Typhoon finished the season with 6-3-1.
Thursday, November 26, 1964 - Skier Vreni Schneider was born in Elm, Switzerland.
From Jay Styles ('68) of VA - 11/25/09 - "Safe and Happy Thanksgiving":
Just wanted to wish you and everyone out there a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving. If you are traveling, be mindful that the important thing is to arrive at your destination safely. We are off to Annapolis for the weekend.
Thanks so much, Jay Sweetie!
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 11/25/09 - "SPAM Filter":
In a recent Newsletter to the TYPHOON Nation you asked your subscribers to take a shot at trying to assist Sepi "Dimples" Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC to enable her email to receive your subscriber Newsletter.
Without knowing the electronic mail application being used, it is bit of a challenge to give accurate assistance, but let me take a shot at it.
Open the email application:
Find the email settings, and open this window.
Check the "Blocked Sender" list for it could
have been added with her knowledge. If your address is listed, then remove
it. This should solve the issue.
The suggestions above are what we called in the Marine Corps a "WAG" an acronym for "Wild A** Guess".
Thank you so much, Adonis! I certainly hopes this works!

From Gary Sealey to Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 11/25/09 - "NNHS color":
|One other thing
I wanted to ask you.
NNHS... when my grandfather took us all to the Turkey Day games..... NNHS was blue and ORANGE. I was very young...went probably half dozen of years...always remember orange...
An NNHS graduate told me they were always blue and gold and those colors are even in the wording of either the fight song or alma mater.
Just curious how that came about.... It looked orange on the NNHS 64 shirt to me...
Thanks for the history of colors.

From David Whitley ('67) of VA - 11/25/09 - "You've got to see this - Sand Drawing":
What an amazing talent.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOhf3OvRXKg - Kseniya Simonova's Amazing Sand Drawing (with Metallica's Apocalyptica "Nothing Else Matters") - Kseniya Simonova is a Ukrainian artist who just won Ukraine's version of "America's Got Talent." She uses a giant light box, dramatic music, imagination and "sand painting" skills to interpret Germany's invasion and occupation of Ukraine during WWII.
Thanks, Gorgeous! This is both beautiful and moving - let alone amazing!

From Phil Hammond ('64) of UT - 11/25/09 - "First Small Winter Strom for the "Wasatch Back" (Park City)":
First of all thanks for all the hard work! You inform us about each other all over this great land of ours! And a Happy Thanksgiving.
I can't tell you how many people at our 45-year reunion said how they liked the pictures and notes about Park City, Utah you posted for me. I thought perhaps most people are not aware of what it takes to start a ski season at Deer Valley Resort so I have attached pictures of "whales". Whales are mounds of man made snow blown from our snow guns. We let the whales sit for as long as we can for the moisture to drain and it becomes a consistent temperature. We mainly make snow for the spring in areas that melt fast. We use approximately 150 million gallons of water making snow in a season. Of course this water runs off the mountain back into our lakes and ponds in the spring. We will not open a run until it is at least 3 feet deep. Also we employ approximately 2500 people during the busiest part of the season. So come on out and enjoy the beauty of it all and I will personally ski with you. You may not like where I take you but never fear, our snow is great fluffy powder and if you fall it won't hurt much!
PS. The picture from my kitchen window was the day after I had cooked a Smithfield ham. The fresh snow and the smell of the ham reminded me of what a surprise it was to see the first snow at Stuart Gardens.
Take care all and come visit.
Thanks for everything, Phil! As we're expecting 17 people for dinner(s) today arriving in two overlapping shifts due to work schedules, and as I still need to go downstairs and prepare my special holiday dressing, I've saved your nine images for posting next time!
From My Friend, Judy Bundy Bowermaster (Litchfield HS, IL - '59) of IL - 11/25/09 - "Admit it.....":
......you feel like doing this to at least one person everyday!
WILD GIGGLES! Thanks, Jude - see you soon!

|Today I give thanks for
God Bless you all.
Thank you so much, Cheryl! I think we must all be feeling that same way today!
ArcaMax Jokes - 11/25/09:
I used to work in an art supply store. We sold artists' canvas by the yard, and you could get it in either of two widths: 36 inches or 48 inches.
Customer: "Can you please cut some canvas for me?"
Me: "Certainly, what width?"
Customer: (confused and slightly annoyed) "Scissors?"

We Gather Together
Text: Nederlandtsch Gedencklanck; trans. by Theodore Baker Music: 16th cent. Dutch melody; arr. by Edward Kremser (1838-1914) Tune: KREMSER, Meter: Irr. We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing; He chastens and hastens His will to make known; The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing, Sing praises to His name: He forgets not his own. Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining, Ordaining, maintaining His kingdom divine So from the beginning the fight we were winning; Thou, Lord, wast at our side, All glory be thine! We all do extol thee, thou leader triumphant, And pray that thou still our defender wilt be. Let thy congregation escape tribulation; Thy name be ever praised! O Lord, make us free!
