Sunny and in the low 100s today in the NV desert.

Today's Question(s):
In honor of Woodstock Day, do you know anyone who attended ? No -- I lived in New Zealand at the time, so too far away for me and my friends.

If you could go back in time would you want to attend ? I don't think so -- too many people -- but loved 60s music.

Speaking of going back in time, which of the following things in the past would of enjoyed being at in person:

When they took down the Berlin Wall ?
The inauguration of a President(which one) ? Kennedy
Martin Luther Kings "I Have A Dream Speech ?
Man's first walk on the moon ?
When Columbus discovered America ?
VE Day in New York City ?
All of the above, though getting to the moon would be awfully scary!

Have you ever "cleaned out" the bookmarks on your computer ? Yes.

Did you just take a look at them and say to yourself "I really need to delete some of them ? Didn't check, but I'm sure there are some that need deleting.

How about now ? How about later?

Have you ever told,emailed or texted one of the more interesting or unusual "Today in History" to someone ? No, but I do enjoy reading them.

Have you ever been on a trampoline ? Yes -- very fun!

Do you know anyone who has one in their backyard ? No.

Thanks for the questions Karla and happy day everyone!

Today in History:

1457 - Earliest dated book, "Mainz Psalter," completed
1848 - M Waldo Hanchett patents dental chair
1911 - Procter and Gamble unveils its Crisco shortening I think I have an original can in the kitchen.
1914 - Panama Canal opens (under cost)
1939 - "Wizard of Oz" premieres at Grauman's Chinese Theater, Hollywood
That was a great year for movies.
1965 - the American Football League (AFL) awarded an expansion team franchise to lawyer Joseph Robbie and actor Danny Thomas for $7.5 million. Robbie had originally wanted to establish the franchise in Philadelphia, but AFL commissioner Joe Foss suggested courting Miami due to its warm climate, growing population, and lack of a football team. A contest was held in 1965 to choose the name of the new Miami AFL franchise. Danny Thomas? Really? That is interesting.
1969 - Woodstock Music and Art Fair opens in New York State (Max Yasgur's Dairy Farm)
1974 - Longest team (6) trampoline bouncing marathon (1,248 hours (52 days))

They were not sure he survived, as he had been badle injured (buried alive at Passchaendale), recovered and then sent back into battle, again injured (shot), and returned back to the field. They saw him from a second floor window coming up the farm lane. One of my Auntie's told us the story, and she wept as she told us the story, and of how he bent down and ran the pure prairie soil, through his hands.. and how they ran down to meet him. One, of the first things she told us he said was that he was so "glad to be home on soil, untouched by the blood of human suffering.".
