  From Elaine Wilkinson Bracken ('61) of VA - 11/11/08 - "VICKS VAPORUB - INTERESTING":

Haven't tried this, but will the next time we have coughing.  S&S

During a lecture on Essential Oils, they told us how the foot soles can absorb oils. Their example: Put garlic on your feet and within 20 minutes you can 'taste' it.

Some of us have used Vicks VapoRub for years for everything from chapped lips to sore toes and many body parts in between. But I've never heard of this. And don't laugh, it works 100% of the time, although the scientists who discovered it aren't sure why. To stop night time coughing in a child (or adult as we found out personally), put Vicks VapoRub generously on the bottom of the feet at bedtime, then cover with socks. Even persistent, heavy, deep coughing will stop in about 5 minutes and stay stopped for many, many hours of relief. Works 100% of the time and is more effective in children than even very strong prescription cough medicines. In addition it is extremely soothing and comforting and they will sleep soundly.

Just happened to tune in A.M. Radio and picked up this guy talking about why cough medicines in kids often do more harm than good, due to the chemical makeup of these strong drugs so, I listened. It was a surprise finding and found to be more effective than prescribed medicines for children at bedtime, in addition to have a soothing and calming effect on sick children who then went on to sleep soundly.

My wife tried it on herself when she had a very deep constant and persistent cough a few weeks ago and it worked! She said that it felt like a warm blanket had enveloped her, coughing stopped in a few minutes and believe me, this was a deep, ( incredibly annoying!) every few seconds uncontrollable cough, and she slept cough-free for hours every night that she used it.

If you have grandchildren, pass this on. If you end up sick, try it yourself and you will be absolutely amazed at how it works.

   WOWZERS! Thank you, Elaine!

From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 11/11/08 - "Negotiating with a Dentist":

Gotta watch those Brits........ giggle
This is a couple of minutes long --- but the "punch" line is at the very end -- so listen carefully to the end!   Great British humor!  FUNNY!  Smile emoticon

   YOWZERONI-GIGGLES!!! Okay, I must say I didn't see that one coming! Thanks, Norris!

   From F.A. Saunders (Hampton HS - '64) of VA - 11/12/08 - "Heads Up":

The  newest virus circulating is the UPS Delivery Failure. You will  receive an email from UPS Packet Service along with a packet number.  NOTE: The word packet is mis-spelled on this line. It will say that  they were un-able to deliver a package sent to you on such and such  a date. It then asks you to print out the invoice copy  attached. DON'T TRY  TO PRINT THIS. IT LAUNCHES THE VIRUS!  Pass this warning on to all your PC operators at work and home. This  virus has caused Millions of dollars in damage in the past few  days.

Snopes confirms that it is real:

   YIKESARONI!!! Thanks, F.A.!

   From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 11/12/08 - "Who woulda thought?":

New Law Authorizes Veteransí Salutes during National Anthem

   WELL, that's interesting! Am I the only one puzzled here?!? Thanks, Bill!

From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 11/13/08 - "Thanksgiving....a video":

We have so much to be thankful for not only on November 27 but every day.
Please take 2.5 minutes to watch the attached video and pass it along.

A little early but well worth it.

   This is so beautiful! Thanks again, Norris!

    From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 11/13/08 - "Our Old Stomping Grounds - Peninsula Dairy Store.":

Hi, Carol:
After visiting this section of the website, please allow me to provide a bit more accurate detail with regard to the subject:
Peninsula Dairy Store
3500 Jefferson Avenue
Newport News, Virginia
I had hoped that someone in the TYPHOON Nation may have furnished an image of this building with the green tile, and large windows in an art deco style. It was a very impressive building.
In my earlier recollections of this "Old Stomping Ground" my description encompassed their horse stables. The stable was situated north of the dairy store, which took up the entire block of 3500 Jefferson Avenue. The stable was on the corner of 36th Street and Jefferson Avenue, and extended northwards to the railroad tracks just south of the 39th Street Bridge.
In trying to determine when this company went out of business, there seems to be no information on the world wide web or maybe I just do not know how to search, unless it is on Google.
This dairy delivered milk to residences by means of horse drawn wagons. The horses knew the route so well, that the delivery man would leave the wagon with a customers order, place it on the front porch and dash back to the wagon to get set for the next delivery. The wagon kept moving at the same pace while the delivery man jumped on and off carrying the individual orders. It was a site to behold for a youngster growing up in Newport News.
TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

   WOWZERONI! Thanks so much for this follow-up, Joe! I added it to that page:

  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 11/12/08 - "The Curtain Rods - Hell Hath No Fury!!!":


Hell hath no Fury!

She spent the first day packing her belongings into boxes, crates
 and suitcases..

On the second day, she had the movers come and collect her things.

On the third day, she sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining room table by candlelight, put on some soft background music and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar and a bottle of Chardonnay.

When she had finished, she went into each and every room and deposited a few half-eaten shrimp dipped in caviar, into the hollow of the
 curtain rods.

She then cleaned up the kitchen and left.

When the husband returned with his new girlfriend, all was bliss for the first few days. Then slowly, the house began to smell. They tried everything; cleaning, mopping and airing the place out.

Vents were checked for dead rodents and carpets Rugs were steam cleaned..  Air fresheners were hung everywhere.  Exterminators were brought in to
 set off gas canisters, during which they had to  move out for a few days, and in the end they even paid to replace the  expensive wool carpeting.

Nothing worked. People stopped coming over to visit. Repairmen refused to work in the house. The maid quit.

Finally, they could not take the stench any longer and decided to move.

A month later, even though they had cut their price in half, they could not find a buyer for their stinky house. Word got out and eventually even the local Realtors refused to return their calls.

Finally, they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place.

The ex-wife called the man and asked how things were going. He told her the saga of the rotting house. She listened politely and said that she missed her old home terribly, and would be  willing to reduce her divorce settlement in exchange for getting the house  back.

Knowing his ex-wife had no idea how bad the smell was, he agreed on a price that was about 1/10th of what the house had been worth, but only if she were to sign the papers that very day.

She agreed and within the hour his lawyers delivered the paperwork. A week later the man and his girlfriend stood smiling as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home....
 including the curtain rods.

   Joyce, you are soooo baaaad!!! Thanks, Lady!

  From Ruth Ann Reece Horace ('67) of FL - 10/31/08 - "++++ MAXINE +++++" (#10 in a Series of 15):

..... More from the gal everyone loves and admires.....

Whatever pops into her mind, Maxine says. Ordinarily, folks might be offended. But instead, millions of Americans have identified with the crabby, irreverent Maxine, the popular Hallmark character that lambastes everything from holidays to aging, and does not hesitate to tell it like it is - or as she sees it.....

   Thanks, Ruthie!

- Tommy Roe, 1969

Dizzy, Iím so dizzy my head is spinning
Like a whirlpool it never ends
And itís You girl makiní it spin
You're making me dizzy

First time that I saw You girl, I knew that I just had to make You mine
But itís so hard to talk to You with fellows hanginí round You all the time
I want You for my sweet pet, but You keep playing hard to get
Iím going round in circles all the time

Dizzy, Iím so dizzy my head is spinning
Like a whirlpool it never ends
And itís You girl makiní it spin
You're making me dizzy

I finally got to talk to You and I told You just exactly how I felt
Then I held You close to me and kissed You and my heart began to melt
Girl You've got control on me,cuz Iím so dizzy I can't see
I need to call a doctor for some help

Dizzy, Iím so dizzy my head is spinning
Like a whirlpool it never ends
And itís You girl makiní it spin
You're making me dizzy
my head is spinning
Like a whirlpool it never ends
And itís You girl making it spin
You're making me dizzy
you're making me dizzy
