DearFriends and Schoolmates,
For those of you who are personally celebrating it, today is the First Sunday in Advent. For those who are not personally celebrating it, well, it's still the First Sunday in Advent, and we're still one big happy Typhoon Family celebrating everything together as families do, n'est pas??
This ancient hymn gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, "golden oldie".....

From Domi O'Brien ('64) of NH - 11/28/09 - "Greetings from NH!":
for remembering my birthday. It's hard for me to believe I'm 62.
Thanksgiving was madness and joy-- 18 places set around the table. People
gathered in the living room, keeping a hopeful eye on the kitchen while
munching cheeses, smoked salmon, my daughter-in-law Daniela's guacamole,
which is more like a chopped avocado salad, baba ganoush, crackers, corn
chips, carrots, celery, dip, olives, sipping champagne and cider and
lemonade,... and then things were ready and we carried to the table tossed
green salad, turkey, rib roast of beef, herbed boneless pork roast, sweet
potatoes, au gratin potatoes, feather rolls, oat-rye-stout-molasses rolls,
corn, mushrooms, stuffing (cooked separately so as not to contaminate the
turkey for the gluten-intolerant or the stuffing with poultry if any
vegetarians wanted some), gravy and for the vegetarians basmati rice
fragrant with cardamon cloves allspice cinnamon bay leaves tumeric and
saffron, navrattan curry, channa biryani, and spiced dal (much fresh ginger
and garlic in the dal). My son Ragnar, my friend Cathie's husband Roger, and
my friend Patricia's son Tim carved and passed turkey, pork, and beef while
the vegetarians, clustered at one end of the table, happily launched
themselves at the East Indian food (which is something I don't make often,
so I was relieved that it all came out well and was a success). The side
dishes were passed around, along with the rolls, and we went around the
table saying what we were thankful for. After a break during which much of
the crew went for a walk, while the tables were cleared, and the dessert
plates put on, the pies-- pumpkin, apple, and blueberry, the pumpkin
cheesecake, the Death by Chocolate (flourless chocolate cake), and the
pumpkin custard (these last two for the gluten-intolerant) went around,
along with a bowl of nuts, one of apples and one of tangerines. (The
appetizers and salad and side dishes and desserts and beverages were brought
by guests; I had concentrated on the main courses and rolls and Death by
I am thankful for friends and family, for the bounty of the harvest, and for a land where we can associate with whom we please, worship as we please, and and speak freely.
WOWZERONI-RINI! Thank you, Domi! You know, of course, that the entire time I was preparing the few items to which I had been assigned, I was thinking of you and your splendiferous feasts, and wondering just how many years it had been since I felt up to doing that sort of thing. Surely it wasn't all that long ago....
I will ditto all the things for which you are thankful and add a few more of my own - such as several cooks and bakers among our family and friends to share in the preparation of feasting-food!
From Mike Miller ('65) of NC - 11/28/09 - "New Email":
|Carol, I've been gone
for a while, but I'm Back!!! I hope that you, and all of your family are
doing well!! Please update my info on the Class site and feel free to
release it to any of our friends. I think of you often.
Michael, there you are! I think of you often, too, but I thought you had fallen off the ends of the earth! I've switched your addies all around now; Welcome Back!
From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 11/26/09 - "HAPPY AUTUMN":
The 7 Ups!
Decide to have a good day.
Up !! The best way to dress up is to put on a
smile. A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.
Say nice things and learn to listen. God
gave us two ears and one mouth, so He must have meant for us to do twice as
much listening as talking.
. . . for what you believe in. Stand for
something or you will fall for anything.
. . to the Lord.
. . for
. . your Prayers.
God answers Knee-Mail!
Wishing you a Blessed day!!!
Thank you, Joyce!

Latin Text written by
Set to the Latin plainchant Divinum Mysterium, by Thomas Helmore
appeared as early as 1582 in
Piae Cantiones, where it bore the title "De Eucharistia."
natus ex parentis
Ipse iussit et creata,
Corporis formam caduci,
O beatus ortus ille,
Psallat altitudo caeli,
Ecce, quem vates vetustis
Macte iudex mortuorum,
Te senes et te iuventus,
Tibi, Christe, sit cum
English Translation by Roby
for the English Hymnal (1906)
Father's heart begotten,
By His word was all created
He assumed this mortal
O how blest that wondrous
Sing, ye heights of heaven,
This is he, whom seer and
Hail! thou Judge of souls
Now let old and young
Let the storm and summer
John Mason Neale
Of the Father’s
At His Word the
worlds were framèd;
He is found in
O that birth
O ye heights of
heaven adore Him;
This is He Whom
seers in old time
of souls departed,
Thee let old
men, thee let young men,
Christ, to Thee
with God the Father,
